[ENT] Season 3, Episode 1: The Xindi
We get our first real look at the Xindi and more of a glimpse into the expanse. The concept of there being five different Xindi species is introduced, we meet the military on Enterprise and how professional they act, we see how people in this region are treacherous and ruthless, and we get a hint about the anomalies that are to come. Overall it’s a fun episode and continues the excitement from last season’s finale.
