Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Even more so than the previous episode, this episode really begins to show signs that the people behind Enterprise acknowledge how different and strange the Vulcans are. They are pure dicks who do not seem to be as logical, unemotional, or peaceful as they have claimed to be throughout every episode.
I think this is a solid middle act to the trilogy. It has some strong performances, a lot of neat ideas, digs into the Vulcan mysticism, further develops how corrupt the High Command is, and actually does a good job with all of this material.
It is a well performed, well written, tightly paced episode that keeps your interest throughout. Why did Enterprise wait so long to get so good?
