Star Trek: Enterprise: Two Days and Two Nights

Finally arriving at planet Risa, the weary Enterprise crew eagerly embarks on a long overdue shore leave on the tropical paradise for two days and two nights. As some of the crew needs to stay onboard and run the ship, Captain Jonathan Archer institutes the drawing of lots to determine who can take leave. Winning a vacation himself, Archer feels both guilty for taking a break and also suffers from premature separation anxiety for leaving the Enterprise. With the comfort of T'Pol remaining onboard, the Captain is finally able to board the shuttlepod along with Trip, Reed, Mayweather and Hoshi. Everyone seems to have quite varied agendas for their short time on the planet: Mayweather plans to do some rock climbing on a cliff that changes pitch while you climb it; both Trip and Reed plan to meet some of the female aliens and ... broaden their cultural horizons; Hoshi feels she has had to rely on the Universal Translator far too much, and therefore plans to put her linguistic skills to the test with the various alien languages she hopes to encounter; while Archer booked a small cabin overlooking the ocean, and simply plans to relax with a good book and Porthos. Once the shuttlepod lands on Risa, the eager crewmates all go their separate ways.

Episode Notes
Date: 18 February, 2152

The Season 1 DVDs contain a deleted scene for this episode. Numbered Scene 1-2, it consists of a one and a half minute exchange between Jonathan Archer, Trip Tucker, T'Pol and an unnamed Risan male. In it we find out how the crew paid for their shore leave, with the Risan male taking an unspecified amount of dilithium to cover "all" costs for the vacationing crew members. We also learn that Risa has numerous diversions for Vulcans.
