A Suliban agent appears to save the Enterprise from a sabotage attack during a visit from a group of alien holy men who are viewing a cosmic flare from the ship. Things get even more baffling for Archer when he discovers a member of his crew is from the distant future.

Cold Front provides few answers to the questions it poses, setting up events for further into the season. But it does so with sufficient style that you can forgive its lack of resolution. In fact, the trailing threads it spins hark back to DS9's grand story arcs making a refreshing change from the more piecemeal style of Voyager and Next Gen.

 

An unidentified ship attacks the Enterprise, forcing Lt Reed to hasten the installation of the ship's phase cannons. And by chance it's also his birthday, but no one knows what he likes to eat.

Silent Enemy doesn't really boast much in the way of a plot. But the actors, writers and production team have gelled to a point where things like a story are not always necessary to create a quality episode. And although Silent Enemy isn't quite all it pretends to be, it is nonetheless a solid 42 minutes of entertainment. Enterprise has finally started to sustain a quality that was sadly lacking in early episodes.
