Overall Ep :
First Aired :

Season Ep :
The "escaping shuttle" sequence is really silly. Even granting that fiddling with the sensors could fire a thruster, how stupid is it not to secure these things to a surface? Plus the motion of the shuttle looks really wrong – I can't be specific, but the motion just doesn't look like what you would expect from a thruster in that position firing.
Great Moment :
I really liked the character of Tarquin, despite the silly name... right up until he tried to make Hoshi stay with him. He worked much better as a sad and lonely figure than as an evil one, and it would have improved the episode significantly to keep him that way.
Body Count :
Exile is the first Star Trek episode screened in HDTV. It's a pity that nobody owns a HDTV set yet...
When Hoshi begins seeing and hearing things, her friends think she may be suffering from stress. But she is certain that what she is experiencing is real – and may offer a way to find out something about the Xindi.
