Twice! Twice he's been captured, and twice he's escaped!
Our magistrate should never have shown him mercy.
He should be executed for his crimes.
You had a simple mission, Duras.
Locate the rebels that Archer was harboring and return them to the empire.
But you failed. Archer made a fool of you.
We are offering you a chance to regain your command, and your honor.
I will not fail.
It must be something pretty serious.
What's going on?
The Captain wants to talk to us.
He's speaking with Admiral Forrest. It's the third time in the last hour.
Well something is obviousely up.
I can't remember the last time he asked me to join the senior staff for a brieving.
Maybe it has something to do with the fa...
There is been an attack on Earth.
What do you mean an attack.
A probe. They don't know where it came from.
It fired a weapon that cut a suave. 4000 kilometers long.
From Florida to Venezuela.
There may have been a million casualties.
We've been recalled.
Did they say why?
I didn't ask.
It'll take a while to get back, Sir.
Bridge to Captain Archer.
It's Admiral Forrest, Sir.
Set a course, Travis. Warp 5.
Excuse me, Captain.
When you spoke to Admiral Forrest, did he say what part of Florida was hit?
No, I'm sorry.
Ah, she may been away.
Architects take a lot of trips.
Older or younger?
My baby sister.
When we where in school, I made sure all the boys in school got a good look at me.
No one ever messed with her.
Maybe she was away.
Anything you can tell me about what the Admiral had said?
The number of casualties has been reviced.
It's up to 3 million.
Why would someone do this?
I spoke with Ambasador Soval.
A vulcan transport located the pod in Cental Asia.
They retrieved it and brought it to Starfleet headquarters.
What do they know?
There was a pilot, killed on impact.
Who the hell was he?
They don't know.
Did they say anything what part of Florida was hit?
Trip's sister lives in Florida.
Captain, we got Suliban ships. Eight of them. Aproaching at high warp.
Just what we need. Tactical alert.
They are not responding.
There is someone who needs to speak with you.
Silik! I knew you would have something to do with this.
To do with what?
Millions of people! You killed millions of people.
I'm afraid I don't know what you are talking about.
That wouldn't be wise, Captain.
What the hell am I doing here?
There is someone who needs to speak with you.
His information you shall find helpfull. Don't worry, you won't be harmed.
Information about what?
Something to do with your species.
It's in great danger.
He can see you more clearly if you move closer.
Who is he?
He wants to talk to you, it would be foolish to ignore him.
What do you want?
Your planet was attacked.
I am aware of that.
What you are where not aware why.
The probe was send by the Xindi.
They learned their world would be distroyed by humans in 400 years.
How would they know what is going to happen in 400 years?
They where told by people from the future.
People who can communicate through time.
Are they the one the Suliban are working for?
The Suliban work for me.
So you are the one who tries to start a civil war in the Klingon Emprire.
The one who manipulated my mission from day one.
The people who contacted the Xindi belong to another faction.
The probe was only a test.
The Xindi are building a far more powerfull weapon.
When it is completed they will use it to destroy earth.
Annihilate us before we can annihilate them.
Why are you telling me this?
The Xindi where not suppose to learn about their future.
If they deploy this weapon, it wil conterminate the timeline.
You must not let that happen.
Why should l believe you?
You have no choice but to believe me.
If this timetraveler is trying to protect humanity,
...why didn't he tell you before millions of people where killed.
He didn't think we'd believe him.
He's probably right.
I'm sure Starfleet and the High Command will find a far more logical explanation of who attacked earth.
He may be telling the truth.
If he is...I need your support, not your damn sceptisism.
Captains Starlog April 24th, 2153...
...the journey home is been very difficult.
We've now learned that over 7 million people where lost.
That's our sun.
A vessel is dropping out of warp.
200 kilometers off port.
Who are they?
They've fired some kind of...
That one took out both for fasecanons.
You still have torpedos.
It's a Klingon Bird of Prey.
They want you, Sir. They say they won't distroy Enteprise if you surrender to them.
Archer is an enemy of the Empire. He must be brought to justice if honor is to be regained.
Both their nacells are crippled.
Their canons are down.
Prepare a boardingparty.
Three ships aproaching.
Shields are failing.
Are they offline?
Then keep firing.
We've lost disruptor bays 3 and 4.
Go to warp speed.
It's Captain Romeres, Sir. On the Intrepid.
What the hell was that all about?
A klingon named Duras...
...he's not very fond of me.
Welcome home Captain.
I wish it was under better surcomstances.
I told command every word you've said.
They are having a hard time bying it.
Do they have a better idea of who did this?
And what about the Vulcans?
I suppose you think I'm halucinating.
Our science directorat has determent that timetravel is impossible.
Are you willing to risk a second attack?
All that I'm asking is to take Enterprise and find these Xindi.
What do we have to loose? A single starship?
Seems like a small price to pay if there is one chance in a million that he is right.
Do you know where those coordinates, he gave you, are?
At warp 5, about a 3 month trip.
They're inside the Delphic Expanse.
A region in space nearly 2000 lightyears across.
Vulcan ships have entered it, but only a few have returned.
Sounds like you are talking about the Bermuda Triangle.
There have been reports on fierce and dangerous species...
...in some regions even the laws of fysics don't apply.
20 years ago a Klingon vessel emerged out of the expanse...
...every crewmen on board, had been anatomically inverted.
Their bodies splaied open.
And they where still alive.
You'd be more then foolish to persue this course of action.
It's a risk I'm willing to take.
And I imagine most of my crew would be with me.
This is typical of your impulsiveness.
You'd be putting your crews lifes at stake...
...when you have no evidence that anything you are told is true.
We've lost a lot of people allready, John.
Starfleet Command would need some kind of proof, before they let you go.
I'm not sure the person I spoke too was from the future or not...
...but he knew this would be the reaction that I get.
...he did give me proof.
This is quantum dating the debree.
Take a look.
The principal alloy in this piece was synthasised within the last 4 years.
This one about a year earlier.
What exaclty are you trying to show us, Captain?
12 years for this piece.
Your point, Jonathan...
I'm getting to it.
You might find this interesting.
The scanner is not working properly.
Why is that, Sir?
The quantum date reads minus 420.
What's wrong with that?
Quantum dating always registers in positive numbers.
Then I guess this one is not working either.
You said he told you that this faction of the future could only communicate throught time.
So, how do they suggest they got this component to the Xindi?
I haven't the slightest idea.
But that doesn't change what's on these scanners.
This fragment is from the future.
Unless you have another explanation.
A lack of another explanation doesn't make your assumtion correct.
I'll speak with command.
I'd like to take a look in there.
Are you suggesting this is a Xindi?
I sure as hell like to find out.
This is Doctor Fer'at.
I don't have a lot of time. What's up?
The vulcan research team detected traces paritic radiation in the alien debree.
Why didn't Starfleet catch it?
Some of our technologie is still more advanced than yours.
We are going to treat everyone who got close to the wrackage...
..Dr. Fer'at is here to determan the extent of your exposure.
It shouldn't take long.
Please have a seat.
Have you experienced any noucia or dizzyness?
Numbness in your extremeties?
I feel fine.
I was told you think a piece of the wreckage came from the future.
I know....Vulcans don't believe in timetravel.
Some of us do.
Tell me, this timetraveler you met...
...was he humanoid?
How do you know about that?
I was brieved before coming here.
He seemed humanoid, but I couldn't see him that well.
Have you encoutered people from the future before?
A number of times. Does this have anything to do with the radiation?
I was just curious.
It must be very difficult to have so many people question your story.
Does it upset you?
But how does it make you feel?
I told you, it doesn't help.
I can sense some anger when you talk about this.
It's kind of strange that a Vulcan is so interested in my feelings.
Your exposure seems minimal.
You require very little treatment.
I imagine you must have felt very anctious after meeting someone from the future.
Why would you imagine that.
I'm afraid this exemination is over.
I'm nearly finished.
You are finished.
I just checked the Vulcan database and there is only one Dr. Fer'at listed.
And he's not a pathologist he's a psychiatric analyst.
Soval sure is persistent.
What did he want you to do? Come back with proof that I'm out of my mind?
You come to my sickbay under false pretenses, where are your medical ethics?!
I am just doing what l was told to.
Well, l'm telling you to get the hell of my ship.
If you wouldn't mind Phlox, l'd like you to escored our guest to the airlock.
I'm so sorry.
Her house was over there.
Less then a kilometer.
See overthere? That was the old movietheatre.
When we where kids, and I didn't take my sister with me, she'd scream like a banshee.
Are you certain that she was here when it happend?
Someone would have heard from her if she wasn't.
Captains starlog, supplemental.
After days of debate Starfleet finaly informed me...
...that we are to proceed with our new mission.
She'll be ready to launch in 14 months.
A long time.
Hopefully you'll be back well before that.
What kind of armorments will she have?
Same compliment weapons that you'll have once the retrofit is done.
Have you told your crew?
How many are staying aboard?
Some haven't decided yet, but I don't think more then 8 or 9 will be leaving.
I talked to General Casey a few hours ago.
His team should be arriving at 1800 hours.
I was surprised you asked for them.
You think you'll be comfortable with millitary on board?
I don't have a problem with non-starfleet personel.
The General tells me these are the best he has.
I'm gonna need all the muscle I can get when we gonna cross into the expanse.
You weren't told where in this expanse you are suppose to look.
Not even a hint.
This weapon they are building...
...did he say how long it was going to take them?
I don't think he would have warned us if we didn't have a chance of stopping them.
Is there something I can do for you?
Are you confident with your decision, Doctor?
What decision would that be?
To remain on Enterprise.
Crewman Fowler just told me a shuttle is on its way with 200 snowbeetles.
They could be for my replacement?!
There isn't a doctor in Starfleet that would have the slightest idea what to do with them.
And what about you?
The High Command made it clear that they don't want me to enter the Delphic Expanse.
I'm more interested in hearing what you want.
It's not my please to disobey the High Command.
You've done it before.
It's interesting...you and I, the only aliens onboard this vessel.
To go or to stay...
For me it was a simple question of loyalty to the Captain, and...
...the sad realisation that he'll need me more then ever on such a crusial mission.
But for you it's a more difficult dicision.
Should your legions lie with the High Command, or with Captain Archer.
This just arrived, Doctor.
Thank you, Doctor.
Their range is 50 times greater than our conventional torpedoes.
And they have a variable yield.
They can knock the com array of a shuttlepod without scratching the hull,...
...or they can put a 3 kilometer crater into a astroid.
How long will it take to reconfigure the tubes?
We got 3 teams working on it.
They promised to be done before we leave spacedock.
But l've got to start integrating them into the powergrid.
Is there gonna be some kind of...service?
If you are talking about a funural, it's kinda pointless if there is nothing left.
I guess l was talking about a memorial.
My sister wasn't big on memorials.
I read there was a day of rememberance for the victims a couple of months ago.
I'm sorry you missed it.
Why are you so obsessed with memorials?
I'm not obsessed.
So are 7 million others.
She was no more important then any of them.
She was more important to you.
There is nothing wrong with admitting that.
I'm really getting tiered of you telling me what l can and can't do.
And while l'm at it, l don't need you to remined me that Elizabeth was killed.
So just let it alone!
Maybe you should pay more attention to upgrading your weapons.
So you can blow the hell out of these bastards when we find them.
With all do respect, Admiral...
What is the point of me watching this?
Is it suppose to frighten me, and make me chance my mind about commanding this mission?
It's important for you to see what you'll be facing.
The Vancara was in the Delphic Expanse for less then 2 days...
...when we received a distress call.
This transmission arrived 6 hours later.
Less then 1 hour later the Vancara was distroyed.
There was no indication of a malfunction or an attack.
Are you suggesting the crew was responsible?
I'm suggesting that you reconsider this mission.
Is there anything else, Sir?
I need to speak with you, T'Pol.
If all goes well, you should be able to return to your duties on earth in a year.
That is if you are still interested.
You haven't been back to Vulcan for some time.
You may find your assignment at the administrary of information refreshing.
I don't understand why I can't stay in San Fransisco.
You've spend far to much time with humans.
It will be best if you return home for a while.
You thought it was crucial to place a Vulcan on Enterprise during it's first mission. Why not now?
You where there to provide logic to a crew of humans who insisted on leaving before they where ready.
But logic can't help them in the Delphic Expanse.
How can you be certain of that.
The High Command was specific you are to return to Vulcan.
I believe that should be my decision.
This is not a matter of choice.
Defying the High Command would mean imediate dismissal, you know that.
Soval agreed to let us take her back to Vulcan, if it's allright with you.
It's not that far out of your way.
Hows that last refitteam doing?
Sceduled be done by 0600.
I could tell you there are a lot of people counting on you
But l don't need to do that, do I?
Have they gone to warp?
And prepare to bring them online.
It's bad enough one of us is up in the middle of the night.
How's Porthos holding up?
If no people returned from the Delphic Expanse, l doubt any dogs have.
He must be doing better then we are. He's fast asleep.
You picked a new science officer?
You're gonna mis her, aren't you.
When they first assigned her, l felt like strangling Soval.
She does kinda grow on you.
I would think you would be the first to show her to the airlock.
To Henri Archer.
I wonder what he would though if he knew his engine was gonna help save the human race.
When I got this job...
...commanding the first Warp 5 ship, was about big a responsability as l could have imagine.
Then we began running into so many bad guys...
...and l had to start thinking more about the savety of 83 people.
And now the stakes are gotten a lot bigger.
A weight of the world, Trip.
I can't wait to get in there, Captain.
Find the people who did this.
And tell me we won't be tiptoeing around them.
And that 'non interference'stuff T'Pol is allways shuffing down our throats.
Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving.
We'll do what we have to, Trip.
Whatever it takes.
You've been wanting to test those new torpedoes.
Start them up, we just want to get them off our backs.
What was that?
Increase shielding, and target their weapon ports.
They are still on our back, Sir.
Bring the yield up. 50%.
I told you to target the weapon ports.
Their hullplating is been enhanced.
Our warp drive is failing.
They are dropping to impulse.
Stand down weapons, Sir?
How long will it take them to repair their engines.
Impossible to determan.
Give me an aducated guess.
3 hours, possibly more.
What's our speed?
Warp 3, Sir.
Go to 4,5.
If we can get to Vulcan space before they get their engines back...
....they'll think twice before giving us anymore trouble.
Ensign Mayweather says we're 2 days from Vulcan.
Why don't you sit down.
Just think: 2 days you'll be eating real Vulcan food.
Chef's done an adequate job of approximating Vulcan cuisine.
Well, you never did care for the way that we smell. At least you won't have to put up with that anymore.
I've gotten used to it.
How about al those emotions we bombard you with everyday?
I've grown acustomed to that aswell.
Your not making this easy.
There's gotta be something your looking forward to back home?!
I don't wish to return to Vulcan.
I want to remain aboard Enterprise, if you'll allow me to.
It's not a question of my allowing you.
The High Command would never agree to it.
I've decided to resign my commision.
You've worked so hard, T'Pol.
You are taking Enterprise into a very dangarous place.
This is no time for me to leave.
We'll be alright.
You need a science officer.
Whether she's a member of the High Command...
I've been thinking about who to promote.
You need me, Captain.
Keeping away from those Klingons isn't going to be as easy as we thought.
We're not going to Vulcan.
...set a course for the Delphic Expanse.
Captains starlog, supplemental.
We've been traveling on Warp 5 for 7 weeks.
The crew is anctious to begin our mission.
Nearly a million kilometers.
It looks a hell of a lot closer than that.
A common mistake when viewing something of this size.
Not very helpfull.
It's not that dense all the way through it, is it?
The Vulcan said the Expanse is surrounded by thick clouds of thermobearic clouds
When their last ship went in, it took them almost 6 hours to get through it.
Anything on long range sensors?
Nothing beyond the parameter.
0.2 impulse, Travis.
Lets head in.
We've been inhere for more then 6 hours.
We must be patient.
We launched the communicationbooi, Sir. We got a test signal throught to Starfleet.
Keep them aprise to our possition.
Probably the booi
Not unless you launched 3 of them.
The targeting scanners won't lock on.
Then get closer.
I thought you said the Klingons wouldn't go into the expanse.
We're not in the expanse yet.
Hold your course.
Go to full impulse.
I wouldn't recommand that, Captain.
The antic manifold have it tough enough as it is.
You heard me, Travis.
They are keeping up with us, Sir.
We're being hailed.
Put it up.
Surrender or be distroyed.
Go to hell.
You're outgunned, Archer. Come about and prepare to be boarded.
If you don't obey my orders l'll...
The parametercloud is desapading.
I'm detecting clear place ahead.
That's why Duras want us to come about.
He's afraid of the expanse.
Increase speed, Travis.
The other ships are going to turn back.
We'll do it ourselfs.
We are to close to the expanse.
Only one left, Sir.
The expanse is less then 5 minuts away.
Maybe he'll turn around like his friends
I wouldn't bet on it.
The new torpedoes doesn't have the same effect as last time.
Duras has transfered his offshields forward.
Our weapons can't penetrate them.
We just lost 3 antimatter injectors, Captain. Any more and we are in big trouble.
If he transfered his shields forward, what is protecting his stern?
Does it matter? He's chasing us.
What's protecting his stern?
Do you think you can pull off a L4 at this speed?
I can try, Sir.
Then look for the densest cloud formation you can find.
Captain Archer to all hands. Hold on.
Looks good to me.
Where are they?
Nice going, Travis
I hope you don't ask me to do that to often, Sir.
Expanse is ahead, Captain.
Did you loose anymore of those injectors?
No, Sir. We're good to go.
Sure you still want to tag along?
It's only logical.
Straight and steady, Mr. Mayweather.
Let's see what's in there.
