Popcorn's Rating 7.5/10
Popcorn's Comments: Although the primary story was pretty typical for a Star Trek series, the secondary story was worth watching. Discovering more about Malcolm, who according to our survey is the most popular character, was interesting. It appears that not only do fans know very little about Reed, but so do his family and friends. What was interestiong about this episode was that even though we are given a little more insight into Reed's character, he still remains a mystery. However, it is probably his lack of attachment that is a dirving force behind his determination to do his job. I do wish that the episode had also taken time to flesh out and develop Trip's former relation with Natalie, his girlfriend he left on Earth.

Popcorn's Comments: I must admit that most of this first season, I have been skeptical of the Klingon's part in Enterprise, tonight's episode gave me hope. I liked the newness with which this series is approaching the popular aliens. We are also gaining insight into what went wrong with Human/Klingon relations. I am still wondering when the major cultural faux pax will occur leading to over a century of tensions between the two cultures. So far, the Enterprise has done nothing more than try to help. I am also delighted that we get to see more of Reed and Sato, two very interesting characters I hope to see developed further.

Funny, she doesn't look this heavy.

Episode 15
"Shadows of P'Jem" Airdate: 02.06.02
Director: Mike Vejar   Story By: Rick Berman & Brannon Braga
Teleplay By: Mike Sussman & Phyllis Strong

Archer and the crew are disappointed to discover that T'Pol has been ordered by the Vulcan High Command to leave the Enterprise — and equally frustrated at her seeming indifference to leaving their ranks. T'Pol's last mission as a Starfleet officer, however, proves eventful when she and Archer are kidnapped by a militant faction on an alien planet and find themselves once again at the mercy of the volatile Andorians.

Have you ever noticed T'Pol's bum?

Director: David Livingston   Written By: Rick Berman & Brannon Braga

On a routine shuttlepod mission to investigate an asteroid field, Trip and Reed find themselves suddenly cut off from the Enterprise and become convinced that the mothership has been destroyed. With a limited oxygen supply and almost no chance of being rescued, the opposite-minded twosome must battle their annoyance with one another while also coming to terms with their impending demise.

Popcorn's Comments: This episode had everything that I feel made ST:DS9 a great series, and that would be human interaction. Here we have two very different characters trapped in a shuttlepod, and they are forced to get along, survive, and discover that they have more in common than they thought. The friendship built here is similar to that of the friendship Bashir and O'Brien formed on DS9. I also appreciate the humar that this episode injected: memories of past loves, and converstaions over T'Pol's "bum". This was Trek at its best.
