Storyline

While the weapon is in control of the Reptilians and Insectoids, they still can't launch it. Three species must give their codes and the Reptilian commander Dolim forces the kidnapped Hoshi to decipher the code of the Aquatics. The Primates, Arboreals and Archer think of a plan to stop the weapon. They see only one option: to convince the Aquatics to join their cause with their powerful ships. Archer makes an emotional plea to their two council members. Trip and T'Pol try to find a way to destroy Sphere 41, which might be the hub holding the system intact. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

All hell breaks loose...

This episode begins with the Reptilian and Insectoid Xindi having stolen the super-weapon. While they need a third code to launch the weapon, the Aquatics are neutral and the Arboreal and Primate Xindi are against it. So how will they get this third code? They have kidnapped Hoshi and have used brain medicine on her to make her help them decrypt the Aquatics' code!

In the meantime, Archer learns that the combined Arboreal and Primate fleets cannot defeat the Reptilians/Insectoids so he must appeal to the Aquatics to try to get them to intervene and throw the balance towards the good guys. But, even if they do, the temporal jerks may try something to prevent a good guy victory.

This show is the most action-packed in the long multi-part show about the Xindi/Human war. Lots of explosions, betrayals and nastiness make it very exciting and well worth seeing.
