Enterprise encounters an unusually large comet and captain Archer orders the crew to follow the phenomenon for a couple of days. T'Pol finds out the comet's surface contains eisilium, a very rare element that even Vulcan scientists haven't yet closely examined. Just when Reed and Mayweather are sent to drill to retrieve some of it, the Ti'Mur, a Vulcan ship arrives. Vanik, its captain, tells they're interested in human's curiosity about the comet, but captain Archer doesn't trust it. Especially not after Tucker discovers a coded message has been sent to T'Pol from the Ti'Mur. Written by

Did You Know?
The gravitational field of a comet that size would be considerably less than that depicted in this episode. The gravitational field shown in this episode suggests that the shuttle is affected by a field strength similar to Earth which would be physically impossible. See more
Captain Jonathan Archer
I'm sure you're eager to get back to your ship, so I'll trouble you with just one last question: how long do you plan on spying on us?
Vulcan Captain Vanik
If we were... "spying", Captain, you would have never detected our presence. Your inexperience and your arrogance are your enemies, not us.
