With T'Pol and Trip hostage, John Frederick Paxton demands that all aliens leave the solar system or else he will destroy Starfleet Headquarters. With that warning and the clock counting, Starfleet orders Archer and the Enterprise to Mars to take out the weapon threatening Earth. Meanwhile, the cloned baby of T'Pol and Trip is getting sicker and time is running out for her as well. Imprisoned, Gannet Brooks reveals to Travis that she is a secret member of Starfleet Intelligence. She has been assigned to find a Terra Prime operative working undercover on the Enterprise. With the clock ticking, the future of the planned Federation lies in the balance. Written by
