Guest Stars:


  • TV Guide Description: "T'Pol's sudden transfer from the Enterprise startles Archer, who can't tell if he is more upset with the order or by her indifferent attitude about the reassignment. The captain's frustrations are soon multiplied when both he and T'Pol are taken captive by militant Andorians."

  • Andre Bormanis: "The Andorians were such great characters, you can count on seeing them again. As far as how our relationship with them will change in the future, that's something that we'll discover as we continue writing new episodes for these characters." (November 07, 2001 - TrekToday)

  • Jeffrey Combs: "Basically, it's another hostage situation where the captain gets himself on another planet and gets himself caught in the crossfire of a civil war. It's not a good situation, and basically we are the cavalry coming over the hill. We show up at the opportune moment and help them, and extradite the captain out of the situation." (December 03, 2001 - TrekToday)

  • Takes place on the planet Coridan, originally mentioned in the Original Series episode 'Journey to Babel.' (January 25, 2002 - TrekToday)

  • Jeffrey Combs: "Well, the first one ends with my character sort of begrudgingly thinking maybe these humanoids can be trusted a little bit, but also the gnawing pain that I owe this guy, which I don't like and is an interesting dynamic to play. With this one I basically get to say 'Okay, we're even now.'" (February 06, 2002 - TrekToday)
