To entertain the Captain and Tripp, T'Pol tells a story. It involves a place called Carbon Creek in a coal mining area. T'Pol and two other crewmen on a Vulcan ship crash a shuttle around 1956. They must figure a way to survive. So they engage with the locals, hiding their ears and working at odd jobs. One of them begins to have feelings for a single mother who owns a bar. She has a son who is trying to get to college but has few resources. They are dangerously close to blowing the whole prime directive, especially since one of them has gone rogue. T'Pol is in command because their captain died in the crash. This is a particularly fun episode as we watch the Vulcans try to fit in.
