TV Blurb: Now you see them, now you don't. Odo shows his true face.

Searching for supplies, Enterprise investigates reports of a derelict ship and its ghostly crew. Teleplay by Stephen Beck; Story by Rick Berman & Brannon Braga & Stephen Beck. Directed by Jim Charleston.

Shakespeare's The Tempest via Forbidden Planet via DS9: Shadowplay. Guest starring Rene Auberjonois. 'Nuff said.

Oh, and it's another freaking ghost story. Enterprise seems to want to be the Hammer Films Star Trek. It's wonderful that Rene showed his support for the franchise, but why couldn't it have been a story that wasn't a rehash of an episode he was already prominent in? Poor judgement on Berman & Braga's part.

I can't think of a single original idea in this story. Auberjonois does what he can, but the script wastes this talented actor.

Next: "Detained"
