Storyline

Enterprise is planning a trip to the relaxation planet Risa, when it gets an urgent request from the Vulcan High Command. They must pick up ambassador V'Lar who has fallen in disgrace. Apparently she misused her position during negotiations on the planet Mazar and has been evicted. After Enterprise picked up V'Lar and is on its way for a meeting with the Vulcan warship Sh'Ran, suddenly a Mazarite ship appears. They want V'Lar for further interrogating. When captain Archer wants to discuss it first with Starfleet Command, they open fire. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A Bond of Trust, Respect and Friendship
18 December 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

T'Pol suggests and Captain Archer accepts a leave for the crew in planet Risa, famous for the relaxation technique of the local masseuses. However, Captain Archer is called by Admiral Maxwell Forrest, who assigns the Enterprise to bring the Vulcan ambassador V'Lar from planet Mazar to the Vulcan warship Sh'Raan. V'Lar has fallen in disgrace with the accusation of being a criminal, and the Vulcan High Command requested her urgent removal from the planet. T'Pol prepares the Enterprise to welcome the ambassador, and after a brief meeting with V'Lar, she becomes disappointed with her former idol. Out of the blue, the Enterprise is attacked by a Mazarite ship, whose captain demands that V'Lar should be delivered to them. Captain Archer asks V'Lar the reason for the attack, but she does not justify, pleading classified information, and Archer decides to return to Mazar. After having a private meeting with V'Lar, T'Pol goes to Captain's Archer's cabin and asks him to return immediately to the course to Sh'Raan.

"Fallen Hero" is one of the best episodes of this First Season. The beginning is hilarious, with T'Pol suggesting a "relaxation" of the earthlings due to the reduction of productivity and need of "relieving the stress" of the command of the Enterprise. The gentle and nice ambassador V'Lar seems to be a path to approach the relationships between Earth and Vulcan. Jolene Blalock is fantastic in the role of a Vulcan woman with bond of trust, respect and friendship with Captain Archer and the Enterprise crew-members. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Herói Decadente" ("Decadent Hero")
