Enterprise has finally arrived at Azati Prime, the suspected location of the Xindi weapon, only to find it protected by a very sophisticated security grid. There's just one way to pass it, by using the Insectoid shuttle. Mayweather and Trip visit the planet and find out the weapon is indeed there. To destroy it the shuttle must be sent back for a one way trip. Mayweather and Trip are prepared, but Archer decides he should be the one to sacrifice himself. Then he gets a visit from crewman Daniels, the time agent. He tells why the Xindi want to destroy Earth and urges him to reconsider his decision. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Captain Archer is a big pig-headed in this one...and it's the mother of all confrontations!
9 April 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The trail leading to the Xindi weapon has taken the Enterprise right to the planet, Azati Prime, where the planet-killing device is being made. Along the way, they've picked up a Xindi insectoid ship and Archer plans on flying the ship on a suicide mission to blow up the super weapon. However, the recurring character of the galactic time cop brings Archer 400 years into the future and tells him NOT to fly that mission--he's needed to meet with the Xindi and make them his new BFFs. But Archer inexplicably decides to fly the mission anyway--and you KNOW it's going to fail...but he does it anyway. What's next? Lots of violence and chaos and action and stuff...

This is a very good episode for anyone who is tired of all the episodes leading up to the Xindi confrontation, as it's now here and the show is one crazy action scene after another. You know that the crew MUST survive all this because the other Trek shows all occur AFTER this one...but how?!
