Archer and crew run into an uncharted system with a Minshara class planet. Archer indicates that this is a great time for shoreline leave and starts to create plans when surge rocks and damages the ship. He says they'll need new Radio Hire because the ship's signals are a little damaged due to a battle in a previous episode. Then, upon further study of the region, Archer and crew uncover that they're encircled within a minefield without working radio correspondence. And among the mines connected to the shell from the ship, Reed volunteers to get out there and defuse it. Meanwhile, unfriendly Romulans want Enterprise to depart the machine however with the undetonated mine still attached the ship can't visit warp. Furthermore, among the mine's spikes has pinned Reed towards the shell from the ship.
I question why they bothered getting Romulans within this episode? Maybe for that rankings or possibly to tease the Trek purists who're watching continuity on the program like hawks but largest these aliens might have been any species because they really did not do anything whatsoever here. Still, I loved the feel of the Romulan ships. Bad they and also the Romulans can not be featured that much more within this show because it would break continuity with TOS. Not too it might bother me any.
I discovered a few of the dialogue within the show annoying. When Archer and Reed are getting breakfast, the armory officer is certainly uncomfortable but Archer saying such things as: "This is not a vacation to the principal's office...comfortable.Inch and "Did not your mother ever let you know to not bring your research towards the table?" just makes Archer seem stupid. I am beginning to note a design here. When Bakula has meaty lines to state or lines which have some emotion for them he's fine. However when he needs to say rhetorical things or silly lines such as the above it's no surprise that Bakula sometimes has trouble sounding natural.
I recognize this is not DS9 which the show isn't exclusively targeted at grown ups but it might be good if they elevated the amount of writing. Additionally, TOS wasn't a kid's show either also it attracted youthful and old afterall.There is a great touch of continuity for the reason that the quantum beacons from "Shockwave" were not forgotten and therefore are offer use here. This is among the a few things i like relating to this show. What goes on inside a previous episode isn't forgotten in those that follow. Also, the figures are consistent as possible seen because when Reed responds to his predicament.
Nice to determine Mayweather again and find out him perform here. Actually everybody will get something to complete but it is Reed (Dominic Keating) that stands out. Still, it had been a little of the rehash of "Shuttlepod One" in some way. I found Reed rather less appealing this time around though because he appeared too a fatalist. His "non selfish" act of attempting to commit suicide to relieve Archer from making the decision about departing him available was at character nevertheless. I additionally loved as he states his sights about Archer's command style and ship's methods. Reed might be a stickler for rules
