Storyline

Enterprise has arrived at the location of the Xindi Council and with the help of Degra, Archer can make his plea in front of the five races of Xindi. Archer needs to prove that the Sphere Builders have been telling lies. While the Primates and Arboreals are already aware of the truth, convincing the other three races will not be easy. The Reptilians and Insectoids refuse to even listen to Archer. Meanwhile, the Sphere Builders haven't been sitting still, and have arranged a secret meeting with the Reptilians. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Goofs

During the EVA inside the sphere Mayweather is seen in the shuttle wearing his standard uniform. Because the shuttle has no airlock it would need to be depressurized to open the door. Mayweather would need to wear some kind of pressure suit. Even if the shuttle could be re-pressurized after the others are out he would need to keep the suit on in case the away team suffered an accident and needed to get back inside quickly. For this reason they would almost certainly keep the door open. See more »

Talking with the Reptilians and Insectoids is like trying to talk to your cat!
10 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Archer finally gets to meet with the Xindi Council- -somethings fans have been waiting to see for many episodes. However, Archer is having an awful time convincing them because the Insectoids and Reptilians seem extremely emotional and difficult to convince. In fact, they seem a bit irrational. So, in case things don't go well, a mission goes by shuttle to try to enter one of the spheres in order to determine how to disable them.

This episode is very exciting and offers lots of surprises and lots of action. Folks get killed, the council breaks apart into pieces and the episode ramps up towards a huge finale. As I mentioned before, this and the previous several episodes all seem like one very, very long movie and you'll need to watch a bit more to see how it all ends.
