The Forgotten

*** (3 stars out of 5)
Degra is nearly convinced by the future Xindi artifact Archer gave him. (My Ancestor Burned a Swath of Devastation Across Earth and all I got was this Lousy Medallion.) He wonders if he might be working for a demon instead of an angel. Should he have voted for that egghead Gore after all?

Now he's teamed up with the humans. Yes, they have a parade of consistent facts, but everything they say sounds pretty flimsy. Plus Trip is restraining himself pretty hard not killing Degra- the guy most directly responsible for killing his sister.

"Erasing your memory probably wasn't the best way to earn your trust." says Archer too glibly. And despite this, Degra turns on his own species on behalf of strangers who have give him nothing but grief.

Speaking of things under pressure happening for no reason, the ship springs a leak and gushes plasma flame. Reed saves the ship while getting cooked with green radiation. His kids are gonna have gills or American accents or something.

Trip's attempts to write a letter to the parents of one of his dead team, "The Forgotten" Ensign Jane Taylor, lead him back to his grief, and T'Pol is there for him, envious yet still comforting.
