Enterprise has arrived on time for the appointment with Degra. Captain Archer invites them to their ship, while he does his best to convince both Degra and Jannar that the destruction of Earth is actually part of the grand scheme of the sphere builders to conquer the universe.

Then trouble arises when out of the blue a Reptilian ship arrives.
