List of Star Trek: Enterprise episodes

"Two Days and Two Nights" is the twenty-fifth episode (production #125) of the television series Star Trek: Enterprise. This episode won the 2002 Emmy Award for Outstanding Hairstyling For A Series.[1]

The crew of Enterprise find more than just pleasure during their shore leave on Risa.

Dey Young had previously appeared in the TNG episode "The Masterpiece Society" and the DS9 episode "A Simple Investigation".

This was Kellie Waymire's (Crewman Cutler) final appearance before her death.


After arriving at planet Risa, half of the Enterprise's crew prepare for shore leave, and Captain Archer organizes lots. Winning a vacation himself, Archer boards a shuttle pod along with Commander Tucker, Lieutenant Reed, and Ensigns Mayweather and Sato. Once the shuttle pod lands on Risa, the crew all go their separate ways. Archer notices a beautiful alien woman and her dog on the balcony just below his. Later, he strikes up a conversation, learning her name is Keyla, and that the Suliban massacred her entire family. He also learns that she is Tandaran, and when he confronts her with the truth, she renders him unconscious and leaves.

Meanwhile, Sato is approached by a handsome alien called Ravis, and the two hit it off. She asks him to teach her his complex native language, and he invites her to the exotic steam pools. The next morning, she awakens happy with Ravis in bed beside her. Elsewhere, Tucker and Reed are in a noisy nightclub filled with exotic female aliens. Two women join them for a drink and invite them to view some nearby subterranean gardens, but when they reach the basement underneath the bar, the "females" suddenly morph into male aliens. Tucker and Reed are helpless as the aliens rob them. Waking up later, they finally escape and make their way back to their hotel room.

Meanwhile, in Sickbay, Doctor Phlox prepares to take his annual six-day hibernation, but he informs Sub-Commander T'Pol that two days should be sufficient. Some time later, Mayweather contacts Enterprise after a rock-climbing accident, and is unnerved by Phlox's absence, but Crewman Cutler reassures him that she can handle his broken leg. He later has some trouble breathing, forcing Cutler and T'Pol to awaken Phlox. Though disoriented and incoherent, he still manages to formulate a suitable antidote, and collapses back into hibernation. On Risa the next morning, the Enterprise crew travel together in the shuttle pod back to their ship, each with an interesting story to tell, but with none willing to divulge any details.
