T'Pol will reportedly become involved in the search for a coveted religious relic in the final episode of Star Trek: Enterprise's Vulcan arc.
TrekToday sources today revealed the first plot details for "Kir'Shara", which is currently scheduled to air on Friday, December 3. The episode continues the story from "Awakening", in which T'Pol and Archer are captured by a Vulcan rebel group known as the Syrrannites and Archer receives a vision from Surak telling him that he is the only one who can stop the impending civil war (story).
The title of the episode refers to the Kir'Shara, a sacred Vulcan artifact from Surak's time recovered by the Syrrannites. T'Pol, whose mother T'Les is a member of the Syrrannite faction, becomes further embroiled in the civil war when she is captured by a group of soldiers sent by the Vulcan government. They demand T'Pol reveal the location of the Kir'Shara, but will she betray her mother's people?
"Kir'Shara" will reportedly feature appearances by two regular Enterprise guest actors. Gary Graham is set to reprise the role of Ambassador Soval, which he first played back in the pilot episode, "Broken Bow". He is also scheduled to appear in the first two Vulcan arc episodes, "The Forge" and "Awakening". Jeffrey Combs will also appear as the Andorian commander Shran, last seen in the season-three finale, "Zero Hour".
Please note that these plot details have not yet been confirmed by Paramount Pictures, and until such time you should treat this information as you would any other rumour from an unofficial source. This report is based on an early draft of the script and aspects of the episode may change before it goes to air.
"Kir'Shara" is set to air December 3 on UPN.
