||A very good episode, well-written and well-acted. The bombing at the start got things going very quickly, and the plot then threw up a number of twists. I liked Arev, the most 'Vulcan-like' Vulcan we have seen on Enterprise. Soval was a surprise as well, not only softening his attitude towards Humans a little, but actually proving to be a 'melder'. Some elements reminded me of the current security situation, using terrorist incidents to crack down of dissidents with a very tenuous connection to the bombing. We had references scattered all the way through, and carefully placed in many cases, so that they filled in gaps. I'm especially glad we got a glimpse of a Sehlat, very much a 'sabre-toothed bear'. Finally, the Enterprise Vulcans seem to be redeeming themselves. Well done to Manny Coto and the writers.
