UPN has premiered the trailer for Star Trek: Enterprise's "The Forge", which airs next Friday night.

During this episode, written by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens and directed by Michael Grossman, the bombing of Earth's embassy on Vulcan sends Archer and T'Pol into a Vulcan desert seeking the Vulcan religious faction that may be responsible.

The 20-second promo is available for download online courtesy of StarTrek.com and The Daily Trekker. For those with slower connections, here's a transcript:
