Religious extremists kidnap the Enterprise and accuses the crew of desecrating the one of the many spheres. Now they will use the Enterprise to destroy the non-believers of their homeworld.


Another great episode that deals with the age old fight between science and religion. It is also a perfect reflection of the terrorists in Iraq blowing themselves and others up in the name of a Holy cause, because these terrorists do the same. Overall good episode that really speaks to the times we are living in now, and the end of the episode shows where the world could end up if war isn't stopped.


**** 1/2 out of *****

If there's any proof that Berman kept up with the spirit of Gene Roddenberry, this episode shows it. This episode is rife with Roddenberry's hatred of organized religion. And just like Roddenberry's TOS episodes about bashing religion, they forgot to make sure it was a good episode. The chief difference with this one though, is that the followers aren't as nice as TOS religious followers....and that's saying something when you recall those episodes. These people are willing to destroy themselves and the ship. I think the ENT people were trying to differentiate between regular followers and extremists, but they didn't do it all that well. They didn't stop short so much as they backpedaled with Archer's line with the afterthought, "at least not as you understand it."
