The Enterprise encounters a hostel alien race as Hoshi asks around to find out what to make Malcolm for his birthday.


This episode is great; it's Malcolm's birthday, yet no one knows what he likes. This also introduces the phase cannons, a new weapon that is very powerful, so much so that that the recoil of the weapon hurts the Enterprise as well. One of the coolest parts of the episode is when the strange aliens use Archer's message to them to communicate back to the Enterprise. All in all a great episode


**** out of *****

I have to agree this was good. First off, finally a more complex storyline...two stories, both revolving around Malcolm, but two different stories that really didn't overlap. One serious, one light-hearted. Plus, Capt. Archer dealing with the issues that have been plaguing the ship, willing to go back to Jupiter Station for it. Nicely diverse overall. Gave it a four.

This is one of my favorite ENT episodes. I was very pleased to see, for one thing, the NX get some teeth in the inclusion of phtorps, and phase cannons-which hadn't been installled when the ship first lit out of spacedock. Maybe they were going to be put in Tuesday..LOL. It did make sense to wait a bit, however, and allow the progression to a better parity of offensive technology. I liked this new, mysterious race, and have toyed around with them in bringing them back in a fanfic story. They seem so very otherworldly, it feels as if they could have originated outside our universe-who's to say that couldn't be true? They've clearly gone to great lengths, given their at least outwardly-appearing fragile physiology, gone to some lengths to focus upon strong personal defense technology. And the Malcolm portion showed us that, even amongst his own family, he is something of a 'mystery man'....
