YATI :
Although the shuttle strafing the prison is a nice scene, what weapons is is using to do it? Previously the armament of the shuttles has been described as plasma cannon, but this time it fires a continuous beam that looks just like the phase pistol beam. Have they fitted phase cannon to the shuttles?

Another speed nit - when Enterprise locates Archer, they say they are 5.2 light years away. After the ship arrives, a Suliban says that Danik has only known Archer for three days. But at warp 5 it should have taken the ship at least 15 days to reach the planet.

Also, in "Broken Bow" the female Suliban Sarin showed us a face with Human-style skin and claimed that this is what the unaltered Suliban look like; the mottled skin effect is part of their camoflage ability. So why do all the Suliban in this episode claim to be unaltered when they have the mottled skin?

Great Moment :
The shuttle strafing the prison, a nice bit of FX.
Body Count :
No certain deaths; Archer is once again beaten up, as is Mayweather. Reed gets shot but is apparently not badly injured. Several Tandarans are shot by phase pistols, presumably set to stun. It's probable that there were several people in each of the towers that Trip destroyed, but there's no way to know.
Factoid :
Dean Stockwell is, of course, an old friend of Scott Bakula as the two co-starred for many years on "Quantum Leap".

Plotline

When Archer and Mayweather are captured and imprisoned by the Tandarans, they find themselves held with a group of Suliban. The Tandarans have been at war with the Suliban for some time, and have interned all of the Suliban within their territory. As Archer gets to know his fellow inmates he discovers that few of them have any allegiance to the Cabal, and comes to believe that they have been wrongly jailed.
