Alas, the bad guys in this episode fall prey to a rather convinient bit of stupidity. After chasing their target all this way and finally getting access to her, they shoot the sickbay imaging chamber full of holes and then start to walk away without even bothering to check that she was really inside. Even worse, once he knows he is safe Archer then deliberately reveals his "clever" ploy to the Mizarians. Why can he possibly gain from this? Surely it would have been far better to simply let them go on their way believing that V'Lar is dead. The way this was written it looked like Archer threw away an advantage just so he could rub the bad guys noses in their failure.

When the ship reaches warp 5, T'Pol says it will take 53 minutes to reach the Vulcan ship. She then calculates that the Vulcan ship could head for them at warp 7, and reduce this to 12 minutes. In fact the true time would be 14.15 minutes. Technically T'Pol was wrong, and she really should have gotten an exact answer because she used the computer to work the answer out. But after so many speed nits in Enterprise the writers came veryclose to getting a tricky speed calculation right this time.
Great Moment :
Finally, a Vulcan who doesn't display Enterprise's patented "evil Vulcan" syndrome!
Body Count :
None. Even Archer survived this one wholly intact.
Factoid :
This episode establishes that Enterprise can indeed reach warp 5, but only at considerable duress and for short periods.


The Vulcans ask Enterprise to pick up a Vulcan ambassador from the planet Mizar and take her to a rendezvous with a Vulcan ship. The ambassador has long been something of a hero figure for T'Pol, but when she comes aboard the woman turns out to be nothing like the Vulcan stereotype everybody expected. Shortly after she comes aboard, the Mizarians demand her return to face questioning over criminal charges - and are prepared to destroy Enterprise to prevent her escape.
