Episode Info

Episode Pictures (click for hi-res):

001 first redshirt down

Redshirt Hendorf is killed by plant spores. Redshirt #1 down.

02 McCoy examining spores

I like this picture of McCoy working for CSI as he carefully bags and tags the spores.

03 spock breaks rock

Spock breaks apart a strange rock, then when he throws a part away, it explodes! WTF?

04 spock shot by flower

Spock saves Kirk’s life by shoving Kirk out of the way of a flower shooting spores. Fortunately, he has green blood, and it doesn’t affect him as badly.

05 second redshirt down

Redshirt Kaplan gets fried by lightning. Redshirt #2 is dead.

06 village with a weird plant

A quaint Polynesian village.

07 redshirt 3 explosion

Actor Jay D. Jones takes the full impact of this explosion, due to mistiming of the explosion. We talk about this in the episode.

08 redshirt 3 giant explosion

The explosion has entirely hidden Jay D. Jones who is still flying towards the camera.

09 redshirt 3 falling out

Redshirt Mallory has stepped on an explosive rock, and redshirt #3 is dead. This episode helped the whole redshirt meme start. Sadly, Jay Jones, the actor was injured.

10 enemies dont cry

Akuta crying after Kirk hits him. Kirk isn’t used to this reaction!

11 huge snake set

Akuta points out Vaal.

12 spock walks into forcefield

Spock tells us there is a forcefield, then decides to walk straight into it.

13 village and forked tongue

As they enter the village, we can see a giant snake tongue off to the left. This is their symbol.

14 hut interior and snake tongue greeting

We like the interior of the hut. Their set decorator went all out with the jungle and huts. Notice that Akuta makes a snake tongue with his hands.

15 feeding the machine

Feeding the machine.

16 strange fruit

Strangely colored food.

17 chekov is romancing

The actress Celeste Yarnell is ensuring that her face is seen in the shot.

The villagers imitate Chekov.

19 smashed melon

Bashing in their head melons.

20 lightning spock

Spock gets hit by lightning.

21 she kicks ass

Yeoman Landon flips one of the villagers. Too bad Uhuru hadn’t beamed down.

22 enterprise phaser

Great shot of the Enterprise shooting.

Episode Info

The Enterprise seemingly causes the destruction of an entire colony, and they are ordered home by Starfleet. It looks like the Enterprise might be mothballed for 10-20 years… However a time traveler from the future visits Captain Archer, and tells him that this didn’t happen in recorded history. It’s up to Captain Archer and his crew to make things right.

DS9 is really building up to a conclusion at this point. The Dominion increases pressure on the Cardassian people, Gowron continues to implement his political plans by jeopardizing the alliance’s military, Odo’s disease progresses, and the Cardassian resistance tries to steal Dominion technology while sometimes fighting itself.
