Enterprise discovers a Minshara-class planet populated by over 500 million Akaali. The society is preindustrial, but Archer and Trip can't wait to do some exploring. T'Pol strongly advises against it, she fears cultural contamination, but Archer thinks some make-up by Phlox will do the trick. Then T'Pol picks up neutrino emissions from the surface, most likely coming from an antimatter reactor. When Archer, Trip, Hoshi and T'Pol investigate, they meet Riann. She tells people got severely sick one month after a certain Garos started a curiosity shop. Written by
