Story: Cold Station 12
Written By: Michael Bryant
Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Year: 2004

Continuing where the previous episode left off, we get another solid entry in this season. This episode continues the themes and storylines that began in “Borderland” and expands upon them; it even adds the growing conflict between Soong and his genetically enhanced humans.
It is kind of nice to watch episodes of Enterprise and not have this irritating feeling that the show was a complete waste of time. This season really did attempt to pick up it’s game, and it managed to be so much more successful in doing so, even if some of the stories (this one included) didn’t quite come to a successful conclusion.

The torture scene is actually really well written and executed. You really feel for the guy and the tension is pitch perfect. All in all I can’t really complain about this episode either, other than I think they should have ended the plot here, instead of dragging it out into another full episode.
