Did You Know?


The process of transferring a crewman between starships with a tethered line is based on the wet-navy practice of using a bosun's chair to transfer a high-ranking officer from one ship to another through a line tied to the ship's mast. See more »


When Klingons start the attack to the Qu'Vat colony, one can recognize an actual Earth locations on the Aegean and Ionian Seas (Greece) and more specifically the Aegean islands of Chios and Mytilene (Lesbos) in most of the scenes and the Ionian Sea island of Kerkyra (Corfu) in one scene when star-ship Columbia comes in.

Commander T'Pol: How are you feeling?
Captain Jonathan Archer: Not too bad aside from some strange cravings. Plateful of live gagh sounds pretty good right now.
Dr. Phlox: The cravings should disappear in a day or so, along with your, er... ridges.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: No, I'd keep 'em if I were you, Captain. It makes you look intimidating.

Engaging Conclusion
26 April 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The only hope to Enterprise is the support of Columbia that brings Trip. Travis synchronizes the flight of Enterprise with Columbia while Reed brings Trip on board in a risky operation. Then Trip cold starts the reactor and repairs the system while Columbia sustains a warp field with Enterprise. Then they travel together to the genetic research facility in the Qu'Vat colony. Dr. Antaak and Phlox discover a cure, but they do not tell the General K'Vagh that the process of creating augments will be interrupted. Meanwhile Harris contacts Archer to discuss the situation of Reed. Archer reintegrates Reed to his position, but demanding loyalty to him. When the Enterprise and Columbia arrives in Qu'Var, they are attacked by the ships of Admiral Krell that has received orders to destroy the colony. However, Phlox sends a capsule to his Bird of Prey and releases the virus in Krell and his crew and interrupt the "sterilization" process.

"Divergence" is an engaging conclusion of "Affliction". This series usually gives great lines and space to lead and support characters. But in this episode, the participations of Phlox, Trip and Reed overshadow Archer and T'Pol. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Ponto de Vista" ("Viewpoint")
