Archer and his crew have taken over the Defiant and soon find out the firepower of the vessel. The Tholian ships have no chance whatsoever. There's still one problem as there seems to be a saboteur on board. Two warp regulators are stolen and Kelby is found with a reptilian bite. After Archer takes care of the problem, the Enterprise travels back into familiar space. They interfere in a battle between the rebels and the Empire. Only the Avenger is left and Captain Archer has no trouble saving it. Admiral Blake is on board and is impressed by the ship. Archer gets the idea he isn't the one who will gain the credits for this victory and once again decides to take the matter into his own hands. Written by

Did You Know?
The sets of the USS Defiant were re-created from Star Trek: The Tholian Web
(1968) into the smallest details, with one exception: on the bridge consoles, small tags were placed next to the buttons to indicate their function. The original designs did not have these, but they were added anyway, as it was deemed implausible that any crew member could memorize all button functions. In the end, it turned out that these tags were too small to be visible on screen (so it could be said that the buttons on 23rd century Strafleet ships from Star Trek
(1966) did have tags, but they were too small to be noticed). See more
The Defiant fires on the Avenger, blowing a hole in the saucer section. Several seconds later, when the Avenger is shown in a close-up returning fire, the saucer section has no damage. See more
Lt. Commander T'Pol
What's Major Reed's condition?
Hm... At this point, he could go either way. No doubt there'll be several discreet celebrations if he should expire.
The opening sequence is replaced with footage of various battles and a different theme song to reflect the fact that this is an alternate universe in which the Terrans are a warlike species. See more
