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

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
