Season Ep :
Reed mentions "the smaller" Xindi ship – but we see them both, and they are identical!
Like with the Platinum last week, we have people talk about a material in its "liquid form". The ONLY difference between a solid and a liquid is the temperature. Heat a solid, you get a liquid. You could maybe say that the process to make Trellium-D has to take place with the reactants dissolved in a solvent, but this is actually true of most chemical reactions and is hardly anything to get worked up about.
Great Moment :
Archer WINNING a fair fight!
Body Count :
Archer beats up an alien at the start. Five Humans are injured or killed – it's hard to tell – when the Xindi attack. Several Xindi are shot without effect, but one is apparently stunned and subsequently zapped with one of those batons the MACOs have.
This episode gives us the first look at some different Xindi weapons. The reptilians use a pulse energy weapon along with something that fires a lump of goo that then shoots out darts. The insectoids use another energy weapon that fires a much bigger white-coloured burst.
Visiting a trading outpost, Archer is attracted to an alien woman for sale at a slave market. When she tries to escape he beats up the slave owner and takes her aboard Enterprise. The woman quickly begins to use some unusual abilities to attack the crew, and is thrown into the Brig when she is caught. But she has some powerful friends who come looking for her...
