Story: Fight or Flight
Written By: Rick Berman & Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Everyone is settling in...figuring out issues with their quarters, how the ship works...and Archer is getting itchy for exploration and meeting some first contact action. When they finally come in contact with a ship, it doesn’t respond to any hails and seems to be adrift. They decide to use the opportunity to explore the inside of an alien ship.
The episode also gets things like this early group of explorers chomping at the bit to do some exploring. And the way people aren’t quite settled yet was pretty good. Sadly I think the episode is a little too slow and uninteresting, beyond some character moments, to really be completely successful.
