Archer, Tucker and T'Pol pay a visit to the sanctuary of P'Jem. The sanctuary is more than 3000 years old and used for the practice of kolinahr, the Vulcan method of purging emotions. P'Jem doesn't look pristine however. The door seems smashed and inside ornaments are either broken or displaced. It isn't long before they find out the place has been taken over by Andorians, blue humanoids that aren't particularly on friendly terms with the Vulcans. They suspect the sanctuary of P'Jem to be a disguise for a long range sensor array used for spying. Archer and Trip are suspected of collaborating with the Vulcans and put under arrest.

Dr. Phlox: What is that Vulcan motto, um - "Infinite diversity...?"
Sub-Commander T'Pol: "... in infinite combinations".
Dr. Phlox: Mm! And what is diversity but a celebration of differences? - I wonder if you might remind me of our mission on this vessel. Please, indulge me.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Our mission is to make contact with those who Humans consider new life and new civilizations.
Dr. Phlox: In other words, to seek infinite diversity.

The Best Episode So Far
9 November 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the Enterprise is close to the Vulcan sanctuary of P'Jem, a sacred spot where Vulcans go to meditate and no technology is allowed, Archer and Tucker decide to visit the location and invite T'Pol to go with them. T'Pol teaches the protocol to the earthlings, but when they reach the monastery, they observe that some objects are out of place. Sooner they are captured and find out that the Andorians have taken the sanctuary and arrested the dwellers, suspecting that the Vulcans spy their planet with a powerful sensor. When the distrustful Andorians scam the Enterprise and see the officer of science T'Pol, they believe that the starship crew collaborates with Vulcans and they decide to interrogate Archer. When Lieutenant Reed is transported with two security guards to protect the hostages, they chase the Andorians through the sacred catacombs, where they discover a hidden secret.

"The Andorian Incident" is so far the best episode of the First Season of Enterprise. The story introduces the Andorian breed, and discloses the real behavior of the Vulcans, who does not walk the way they talk. The disappointment of T'Pol with her own people is very clear and may change her relationship with Archer and the Enterprise crew. I liked very much watching the "Reanimator" Jeffrey Combs in the role of the Andorian Commander Shran. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Incidente Andoriano" ("The Andorian Incident")
