Trekathon 704: Stratagem (ENT)

Archer interrogates the Xindi mastermind.

I was disappointed about the caution the episode took in the end, it would have been nice to keep us in suspense (at least a little) about what was going on, rather than reveal the elaborate set up. Gee, they really had to work for it back before the holodeck got invented. But the deception is well established, Archer has to work hard to get what he gets, and the Xindi weapon designer is given a chance to have real motivations and beliefs.

Callbacks: T’Pol gets to do the first ‘engage’ from the Captain’s chair. Albeit not to go to warp.

704 down, 33 to go.
