Storyline

A group of Kreetassans are on board of Enterprise for a friendly meeting. But they leave rather unexpectedly as they seem very offended by something. The crew have no idea what however. But as their ship leaves an alien gel like creature manages to crawl aboard. The creature is growing and growing and shows rather hostile tendencies as it encapsulates five crew members, including captain Archer and commander Tucker. T'Pol, Hoshi and Reed have to come up with a solution quickly. The lives of the five are at stake as the creature begins a symbiotic relationship that in time can't be reversed.

Trivia

The Kreetassan captain is the twelfth character played by Vaughn Armstrong, including his recurring role as Admiral Maxwell Forrest. It is also the final new alien character he played, though said character later reappeared in Star Trek: Enterprise: A Night in Sickbay (2002). See more »

Goofs

Captain Archer states that the water polo pool is deep enough that the players can't stand. In fact, a standard depth for a water polo pool is six feet. It is common for men's water polo teams to recruit players tall enough to stand in that depth. See more »

First Contact
17 December 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After an unsuccessful first contact with Kreetassans, where nothing works and the group feels offended by some attitude of the earthlings, a jelly lifeform invades the Enterprise and lodges in one of its cargo hold. Later the creature captures with its tentacles Captain Archer, Tucker and two crewmembers and engulfs them in its jelly form. While Reed tries to develop an effective weapon to release his mates from the alien, Dr. Phlox advises that they are short of time, since it will be not possible reversing the symbiotic relationship of the alien with its preys. Hoshi finds pattern of a language in the noise of the creature and with the support of T'Pol, they try to communicate with the dangerous lifeform and find its intention.

"Vox Sola" is an episode that recalls "The Blob", with a jelly lifeform attacking the crew of the Enterprise. The best moment of this film is when the crew goes to the movie theater to watch the cult Henri-Georges Clouzot's "Le Salaire de la Peur", showing that the responsible for programming the movies for the crew has an excellent taste. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vox Sola"
