Storyline

After crossing the desert and surviving the sand storms, T'Pol and Archer confront the Syrranites in the Forge. The pair meet T'Pau, who denies any connection with the embassy bombing and Admiral Forrest's death. Archer, now possessing the mental essence of Surak known as the 'katra', agrees to let T'Pau extract it, even after T'Pol's mother T'Les warns the ritual may kill him. Meanwhile Vulcan administrator V'Las is willing to destroy Enterprise to make sure an attack on the Syrrannites isn't witnessed. Former Ambassador Soval allies with Commander Tucker to try to rescue Archer and T'Pol. Written by Meribor

Goofs

The Forge properties prevent technology from working, yet they are able to project a holographic rock face to hide the compound. The hologram also seems to be an energy shield. When one of the bombs hits the "rock" the hologram disappears. If it had been just a hologram the bomb would have obliterated the compound. See more »

Quotes

Surak: We cannot let what happened to the Vulcans of my time take place again. Find what my people have lost. Find the... Kir'Shara.

Captain Archer and T'Pol meet T'Pau in the sanctuary of the Syranites in the Forge and T'Pau denies the accusation of bombing the United Earth Embassy. Captain Archer and T'Pol are arrested and sooner he discovers that Syrran has transferred the mind essence a.k.a "katra" of Surak to him before dying. T'Pau decides to transfer the "katra" to her in a dangerous ritual but she fails. Meanwhile the Enterprise is unsuccessfully trying to rescue Archer and T'Pol. Commander Tucker is contacted by the Administrator V'Las and ordered to leave the orbit of Vulcan. Further, V'Las has the intention of bombing the sanctuary of the pacifists Syranites in the Forge and does not want that the Enterprise witnesses the attack.

"The Awakening" is another engaging episode of this excellent last season of Enterprise. The similarity of Administrator V'Las with the Lord of War is amazing, and the Forge might recall Afghanistan or Iraq, with historic treasures hidden in caves. The Enterprise heading to Andoria seems to be the promise another excellent show. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Despertar" ("The Awakening")
