Sources today revealed the first plot details for Enterprise's upcoming 21st century episode mentioned by executive producer Rick Berman last month (story).
Currently entitled "Carpenter Street", the episode will reportedly see T'Pol and Archer going "undercover" in the North American city of Detroit. But this isn't any ordinary time travel outing, with "Carpenter Street" set to tie into Enterprise's overall Xindi story arc.
The Xindi have an agent on Earth, a man named Loomis, whom they have coerced into helping them with their master plan. Under the spell of the Xindi, Loomis reportedly uses a blood bank as a cover for kidnapping humans in order to deliver them to the aliens. It's up to Archer and T'Pol to put a stop to the Xindi's infiltration of 21st century Earth.
Speaking about "Carpenter Street" last month, Rick Berman said the producers were "very excited" about the episode. "We've got a story in development now that will, in what I think is quite an intriguing way, bring some of our characters into the 21st Century, better known as our present," he said (story).
Please note that these episode details have not yet been officially confirmed by Paramount Pictures or UPN and until such time you should treat this information as you would any other rumour from an unofficial source. These details come from an early draft of the script and aspects of the episode may change as it enters production.
"Carpenter Street" will likely air in November, 2003.
