Guest Stars:


  • Rumoured to feature the Enterprise crew encountering a hunting species known as the Eska. They possess advanced camouflage equipment that they use to hunt game - so advanced that even the crew's nightvision sensors can't detect them. Whilst on the planet, Archer comes across a mysterious shape-shifting woman who claims her species are being hunted by the Eska - for they are what the Eska prize most.

  • John Billingsley: "We land on a planet in which a group of hunters appear to be hunting the native beasts. But it turns out that the native beasts are not beasts but peculiarly evolved shape shifters, who attempt to communicate to the captain the urgency of their plight to stop the slaughter." (February 20, 2002 - TrekToday)
