Archer convinces T'Pol to perform a mind melding with Hoshi and they discover that the abductors were Klingons. They seek the Rigelian cargo ship that transported Phlox, but find only debris. Meanwhile Phlox is brought to a Klingon laboratory to work with Dr. Antaak, researching an antidote to a deadly virus created from a Kinglon experimen. When the Enterprise is attacked by four mutant Klingons that sabotage the ship, Captain Archer discovers that Reed is not telling the truth and he loses his faith in his lieutenant.
