So. The big one. The end of season cliff-hanger. And very impressive it was too, primarily because of the way it tied together three disparate – and often barely hinted at – plot strands into a coherent whole and then threw in a dash of utter lunacy.

Not to be confused with a similarly titled Harrison Ford/ Anne Heche pirate romp this week’s episode sees Archer and his crew toy with the genre of light comedy. It’s a not entirely unsuccessful effort that rattles along nicely.

Finally we get back to the arc set up in ‘Broken Bow’, and learn a little about the ‘Cold War across time’ that everyone was going on about. In this respect ‘Enterprise’ is craftily taking a le

At last, a pay off to all those gantries and gunmetal – ‘Silent Enemy’ is the spaceship-as-submarine drama those militaristic sets promised, and has all the atmosphere and tension such a premise de
