I hadn't even heard of this ep. That was great. Except for poor Mayweather...I think, if you go right across the board, overall the ENT cast are the best actors of any series. Overall that is. Great directing in that ep too. Vejar rarely fails to impress. If I threw in DS9's recurring characters they might nudge ENT out, but I'm very impressed. As for the EP....I don't know if the events of "Errand of Mercy" were a form of first contact, or if the Organians just changed their interference policy, but this ep lays the groundwork for a more elegant solution to "So whatever happened to the Organians" than: 1) The Q kicked them out. 2) They moved onto a different galaxy. I think they just changed their minds again about interfering. This also explains why almost all the aliens that Star Trek runs into are hard-headed, and arrogant. Because that's the norm apparently!
