The Enterprise crew could be on their way to finally tracking down the Xindi when a mysterious stranger offers his help in episode six.
Currently entitled "Exile", the upcoming instalment revolves around an alien telepath known as Tarquin, StarTrek.com reported. According to the official plot synopsis, Tarquin "makes contact with Hoshi and offers to help Enterprise find the Xindi...for a price".
Maury Sterling will play Tarquin, the alien who has a Beauty and the Beast-style relationship with Hoshi Sato, according to actress Linda Park (story). His credits include the films Hart's War and Behind Enemy Lines as well as guest appearances on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Angel and Crossing Jordan.
The episode was penned by Enterprise co-producer Phyllis Strong, who has been part of the Trek writing staff since Voyager's seventh season. During that time Strong has written numerous episodes with fellow scribe Mike Sussman, including Voyager's "Author, Author" and Enterprise's "Regeneration" and "Strange New World".
