In an era before the prime directive exists, the crew of the Enterprise picks up a dying humanoid that represents an entire species on the brink of death. Their request, for Archer to give them Warp drive capabilities, Dr Phlox has second thoughts about it, thinking that their extinction may actually be a part of the evolution of their planet as a new species is about to rise. Man, if only there was actually a guiding principle to help them out in situations like that. Let's find out Matt's take on this episode as he watches it for the first time.
If you're watching with us, the next episode will be a two parter, "The Andorian Incident" and "Shadows of P'Jem." These episodes are not right next to eachother, but they are both from season 1 and certainly belong together.
