Sources today revealed the first information on the upcoming Enterprise episode 'Cease Fire.'
The episode reportedly sees the return of the Andorians, who request a meeting with Captain Archer at one of their colonies. However, the shuttle, which is also carrying T'Pol and Ambassador Soval, is seemingly shot down by the Andorians as it makes its way down to the planet.
Left in command of Enterprise, Trip must deal with a Vulcan officer, Commander Muroc, who is not particularly forthcoming. The Vulcan ship can't detect the location of the NX-01 shuttlepod, as their sensors are apparently being blocked by the Andorian technology.
Trip demands to see the Vulcan ship's sensor logs, but Muroc insists they are classified. Muroc also informs the engineer that the Vulcan High Command has ordered him to take the necessary steps to rescue Ambassador Soval, although he can't reveal the details of their plan - they're also classified.
Although Trip cautions Muroc that force may not be the best way to rescue the hostages, the Vulcan is adamant that the Vulcans "won't allow this provocation to go unanswered." With the Vulcans keeping him in the dark, Trip must work with Hoshi and Reed to rescue their missing crew members.
Please note that this information is based on extracts of an early draft of the script, and has not been confirmed by Paramount Pictures. Until then, you should treat these details as you would any rumour from an unofficial source.
'Cease Fire' is likely to air in early 2003.
