Enterprise becomes the surprising recipient of a gift of slave girls in an upcoming episode, but Captain Archer's efforts to befriend one of the women backfire in an upcoming episode of Star Trek: Enterprise's fourth season.
Sources have revealed to the Trek Nation that in the as-yet-untitled episode, a slaver named Harrad-Sar who has had dealings with the Klingons and the Gorn Hegemony brings three beautiful Orion slave girls in to dance for Archer and Reed. The sisters end up on Enterprise as freed slaves, though one of the women, Navaar, tells Archer that even if she is not his property, she still wants to please him, asking whether it would be inappropriate for her to kiss and touch him.
However, Navaar's motivation is not solely gratitude and attraction to the Enterprise captain's kindness. Though the women have been instructed to stay out of Engineering and other areas of the ship reserved for Starfleet personnel, Archer learns that Navaar, D'Nesh and Maras may have remained in contact with Harrad-Sar after the privateer has ostensibly left them with Archer as a gift. Archer becomes furious when they will not tell him their true mission, shocking his crew with his anger.
Among the planned scenes in the upcoming episode are a visit to the lavishly bedecked privateer barge, decorated with tapestries and alien artifacts, as well as an interrogation in a decon chamber. The episode also features a crewman named Kelby who also appears in the upcoming "Affliction."
