Episode by Episode - Star Trek: Enterprise

Season 2

Episode 43 Canamar


Captain Archer and Commander Tucker end up falsely arrested and on a prison freighter.  Two of the prisoners revolt and they’re now helping the escapees outrun their pursuers.  Archer bonds with the leader escaping.  The dude plans to kill everyone on the ship.  Enterprise shows up in time to help save everyone.  


It is like the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Gambit but told in one episode.  Picard is investigating some shady criminal by pretending to be a criminal and then ropes Riker into the uncover opp. 


While Archer and Tucker aren’t undercover they certainly play-up their suspicion of being criminals.  The episode isn’t terrible, though a little derivative of other countless shows that have done the same thing with prison escape attempts.
