Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Pri'Nam D'Jamat
Jareb (as Tayler Sheridan)
Gregory Wagrowski ...
N.D. Triannon


Enterprise answers the distress call of a Triannon ship. After taking them on board, D'Jamat, their leader, tells they are religious people visiting a sphere. They believe the Expanse, the Chosen Realm, and the Spheres were created by the Makers a 1000 years ago and that the anomalies are their breath. It soon becomes clear that these people don't have the best intentions. They take control of Enterprise and want to use it in the war against heretics. D'Jamat also orders the death of one crew member because Enterprise desecrated several spheres. Archer must choose. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

User Reviews

The premise seems quite flawed...
4 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Think about it--Enterprise is set on a mission to save the Earth and thus save billions and yet they stop to help a disabled ship?! Then, making far less sense, they allow the religious zealots on the ship to have unrestricted access to Enterprise?! Does this set-up for the show make much sense?! I wouldn't stop to help anyone AND I wouldn't allow anyone on my ship!! Regardless, these nuts turn out to be a crazed lot. Using terrorist tactics, they commandeer the ship and go off on a mission to destroy the heretics! So, it's up to the incredibly stupid Captain and his crew to stop these nut cases before it's too late.

Ultimately, Archer is able to use trickery to regain his ship. You also learn why the battle between religious factions is a lot like the Dr. Seuss book "The Butter Battle Book", as the disagreement is so incredibly unimportant...yet the battle has gone on for over a hundred years. This is the only aspect of the show that I really liked--the rest just seemed a bit contrived.
