Enemy Advances

Story: Rajiin
Written By: Brent V. Friedman and Chris Black
Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Year: 2003

While looking for some Trelium-Dto reinforce the hull of the ship, Archer comes across a slave trader and a slave who asks Archer to take her with him. He accepts not believing in slavery and all...she uses sex to get information from the crew and about humans...because she is actually a Xindi spy.
Again I have to point out what a missed opportunity not using the Orions was. I mean Enterprise did finally bring them into the fold in Season Four, but you have pirates a fw episodes prior and now slave traders...it all seems like the Orions could have had a definite plot line in this Xindi Arc.

Anyhow this episode is rather dull, and it uses sex to try and hide the fact that there isn’t much story here. It was watchable, but I kept feeling like it could have been more interesting.
