Long story short: The Vulcans, pissed at Archer, punish him by taking away T’Pol. Meanwhile, the Vulcans and Andorians get involved with a rescue mission on Coridan (where they’re fighting behind the scenes) where Archer and T’Pol are being held. T’Pol takes a shot for a Vulcan captain named Sopeck and everyone decides T’Pol’s fine where she belongs.
This episode largely serves as a sequel to “The Andorian Incident,” but it lacks all of the fun of that episode. There’s very little here to really appreciate. The story is contrived and even though I found Coridan to be pretty interesting, it was brushed aside rather quickly. The only redeeming quality of this episode is the return of Shran. Nothing pushes the Vulcan/Andorian subplot forward, nothing makes me feel sorry for Archer or T’Pol, and nothing really drew me in.
