Archer and his crew have taken over the Defiant and soon find out the firepower of the vessel. The Tholian ships have no chance whatsoever. There's still one problem as there seems to be a saboteur on board. Two warp regulators are stolen and Kelby is found with a reptilian bite. After Archer takes care of the problem, the Enterprise travels back into familiar space. They interfere in a battle between the rebels and the Empire. Only the Avenger is left and Captain Archer has no trouble saving it. Admiral Blake is on board and is impressed by the ship. Archer gets the idea he isn't the one who will gain the credits for this victory and once again decides to take the matter into his own hands. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

User Reviews

Annoyingly sexist two part episode.

These and the episode prior are so I can't focus. Other than that they would have been great episodes. So annoying.
