[color=#000000ost_uid0]Great episode! I don't think I've seen one like it. Most of the time, only the bad guys use these kinds of tactics.

Yes, I think this is one of the best of the season. I really didn't see the end coming.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Yeah, I appreciated that fact too. It was neat seeing our guys playing the enemy and seeing the enemy figure it out.

Actually, when I first started watching the episode, I groaned thinking this would be another alternate future that somehow gets corrected in the past, or something like that. As much as I don't mind those episodes from time to time, "Twilight" was repeated just the week before and even if it hadn't, it'd been too recent since "Twilight" anyway. Of course, then we all come to find out that this Archer playing Degra, which made things just cool. At least I didn't make an ass of myself like one of the posters on TrekBBS who ranted about the alternate future before he finished watching the episode.

But yeah, a good episode.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]You know, if I was Degra, and I saw the red giant on the viewscreen, while having given Archer coördinates I knew were wrong, I would have done exactly what he did in the episode. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I did the same exact thing. This ep was wonderfuly done. They didn't spoil the whole show by giving away the ending before the episode even started, either. Which is what they *should* do. All the time. This was definatly the best episode of Season 3, with the previous ep as 2nd best. I want more!

Next week doesn't hold up my hopes with a naked Trip and T'pol though. Let's hope it's just UPN's false advertising again.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Meh.. They'll only show T'Pols back anyway.

The rivalry between Reed and Hayes could be cool, though.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I really enjoyed seeing the [bost_uid0]NX-01[/bost_uid0] fly around near
all that debris from the eploded moon. They did a
very good job with the computer effects during
this EP, everything looked a lot better compared
to when the ship was covered by that "stuff" in
[bost_uid0]Similitude.[/bost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'm with the others in this thread -- "Strategem" was a great change of pace, and it looks like it'll be a major turning point in the Xindi arc. Good clean fun for everyone, and while it may be unethical to mess with a being's memories, the strategem cost no lives on either side, which is more than can be said for most of Archer's options right now. Nicely done.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Travis had three lines! Amazing!

But really, I liked it. But I still think he was fooling him at the end. It'd be FAR too easy if the weapon was at Azati Prime.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, I don't know. It does take them three weeks to get there at maximum warp.[/colorost_uid0]
