Enterprise agrees to escort Tellarite delegates to peace talks with Andorians. En route they rescue several Andorians who abandoned the ship Kumarr, who insist it was Tellarites who attacked them. When Enterprise is soon attacked by the same ship which now appears to be a Andorian ship, Archer must prove to the warring races that a third party must be setting them up to fail at their attempt at peace.

Did You Know?


The full saying that captain Archer refers to after insulting Trip is 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do'. This means that one should always adopt the customs of the people one is staying with (in this case, the Tellarites). See more »


Tellarite Ambassador Gral: I'm told this ship is the pride of Starfleet. I find it small and unimpressive.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Funny. I was about to say the same thing about you.

Seeds of The Federation
27 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This trilogy of episodes sees Archer acting as intermediary in peace talks between the Tellerites and the Andorians, essentially forming the core of what would be the 'Star Trek' United Federation of Planets. They seem a bit slow-going at first, and the threat of tiny probe ships seems hardly on par with what Enterprise had to face in the previous episodes' conflict with the Xindi, but they're good in that they show the growing trust between Archer and Shrann (who at one point engage in an exciting duel with razor-like weapons in an ancient Andorian ritual to save Shrann's besmirched honor), and they also provide commentary on society's racial castes in the sub-treatment of the Andorians telepathic Albino people, one of whom is needed to stop the renegade Andorians assassin ships. Good action and heartfelt performances, especially from the Albino Andorian girl and her relationship with the mystery pilot of the evil ship, and yet another example of what a good show we lost in "Enterprise"'s premature cancellation.
