1:19 - Acquisition

TV Blurb: Unidentified short, orange-skinned, large-headed aliens with really big ears incapacitate Enterprise's crew and plunder the ship. Teleplay by Maria Jacquemetton & Andre Jacquemetton; Story by Rick Berman & Brannon Braga. Directed by James Whitmore, Jr.

was my reaction when seeing this in first broadcast. All my hopes that Enterprise would be a success pretty much vanished at this point.

It's like old home week with Trekvets Jeffrey Combs and Ethan Phillips returning, as well as SuperTrekvet Clint Howard, who entered Trek lore as the tiny Balok in "The Corbomite Maneuver" at about age 7.

There are so many problems with this episode which have been endlessly enumerated, there's no point in going through them again. I blame Rick Berman, because he of all people should have known the guest aliens were out of place.

Since the whole thing is just a mindless comedy, it's best just to watch the performances and try to recognize the guest stars.

Connor Trinneer spends the first 20 minutes in blue underwear.
