The Xindi arc comes to an end, as the weapon reaches Earth.
I’ll say something about how this whole season turned out in my season review shortly. But I thought this was a fairly good ending (until the last five minutes) to the season – the story was wrapped up in a satisfactory way, and there’s even now a good explanation as to why we never heard of this ‘Expanse’ in other series. Perhaps a little action heavy overall, but with some good sequences. And I thought splitting the action into two ‘threads’, the sphere builders and the weapon, was good. A little more interconnection with them would have made it better though
(Oh, and c’mon. Just because a species eats live animals does not make them evil. That opening sequence was unworthy of Star Trek).
Which brings us to the cliffhanger – to which I say, yuck. I hope this isn’t the season long plot for next year, because few things end up as tiresome as space Nazis. Especially when they’re actual Nazis as well.
Callbacks: We see the signing of the Federation Charter – and learn it was Humans, Vulcans, Andorians and Tellarites who founded the Federation
