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 (imdb@tiele.nl)

Captain Jonathan Archer: How many people do you intend to kill with my ship?
Pri'Nam D'Jamat: [chuckles] Your species is obsessed with numbers - a characteristic of your misguided belief that the secrets of the universe can be revealed through science. This may sound barbaric to you, but it doesn't matter how many heretics die. When the Makers return, only the faithful will survive. Non-believers will be swept away. Not only Triannons, but every race within the Chosen Realm.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Doctrines like that make it... real easy to wipe out everyone ...

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.
