Episode 8- Airing November 6, 2002

The Communicator

Things go from back to worse when Archer and Reed return to a pre-warp society on the brink of war to retrieve a communicator lost during an undercover survey mission. It draws on the McCoy/Kirk exchange from the original series episode A Piece of the Action when McCoy accidentally leaves his communicator behind to show us what might have this case, serious consequences for the planet’s population.

  • Francis Guinan as Gosis
  • Tim Kelleher as Lt. Pell
  • Brian Reddy as Dr. Temec
  • Dennis Cockrum as Alien Barkeep
  • Jason Waters as Alien Soldier

Writers: Story by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, Teleplay by Andre Bormanis



Episode 9 - Airing November 13, 2002


Enterprise takes a close look at an unusual black hole that’s part of a trinary star system. But the ship’s proximity to the stellar phenomenon has a strange effect on the crew, one that severely strains their relationships. Takes place exclusively on the ship (and around it) though we see the galley for the first time (no note if we also meet Chef).

The effects of the radiation cause crew to become obsessed with minor projects: Trip on building a new Captain’s Chair, Reed on security protocols, and Archer on the preface of a book on his father he needs to write.

Guest Cast:

  • Matthew Kaminsky as Cunningham

Writers: Chris Black
Directed by: Patrick Norris

Our Thoughts: Boring episode full of plot holes - the worst one so far this season. There are a few good moments, mostly thanks to Phlox and Reed, but very little of interest in this one.


Episode 10 - Airing 11/17/02
(Was originally episode 9)

Vanishing Point

It starts with the Enterprise arriving at an alien planet. Captain Archer sends down a shuttlepod to take soil samples and photographs of the surface, but the alien inhabitants don’t like this idea and several hostages are taken (of course!) Communications are hindered by Hoshi’s failure to decipher the aliens language...but once Archer agress to return the soil samples and destroy the photographs, all is well.. or so it seems.

Hoshi is confused when she is told by T’Pol that she is being removed as head of communications after Crewman Baird easily deciphered the alien language Hoshi was unable to (however in a later scene, Archer and T’Pol are wondering why Hoshi hasn’t gone on-duty yet).

Feeling insignificant, Hoshi discovers everyone is ignoring her (even the computer). She finally realizes she is becoming a ghost - invisible with the ability to pas through walls. The entire crew thinks she’s dead and she needs to find a way to communicate with them and warn them about an alien plot to blow up the Enteprise.

With Archer contacting Hoshi’s father to deliver the bad news of her demise, she is desperately trying to get his attention by causing a little blue light to blink morse code... the only thing she’s found she can affect. But can she get Archer’s attention to warn him?

Sounds A LOT like a Buffy and ST:TNG episode to me!

  • Keone Young as Hoshi’s Father
  • Gary Riotto as Alien #1
  • Morgan H. Margolis as Crewman Baird
  • Ric Sarabia as Alien #2

Our Thoughts: I missed this one so will have to put our thoughts on it another time.



Episode 11 - Airing December 11, 2002

Precious Cargo

Enterprise answers a distress call from a Retellian cargo ship, and Trip goes aboard to repair a stasis pod holding Kaitaama in suspended animation. When the woman accidentally awakes, she reveals she’s not a passenger, but a prisoner. Things get messy and Trip attempts to rescue both himself and her, but Kaitaama’s obstinate personality makes things difficult. They find themselves on the run from her captors and, in the process, on an unexpected romantic adventure. Meanwhile, Archer holds one of the alien kidnappers captive on Enterprise and devises a scheme with T’Pol’s help to pressure the reluctant prisoner to help them locate Trip.
