Admiral Maxwell Forrest is having a discussion with ambassador Soval in the Earth embassy on Vulcan about joint-fleet operations. Then a bomb explodes, killing 43 people including Forrest. The Vulcans suggest Syrrannites, a group that has a different interpretation of the teachings of philosopher Surak, may be responsible and evidence supports that theory. DNA of a certain T'Pau is found on a bomb, a well known Syrrannite. The Vulcan chief investigator Stel however demands that Vulcan takes the matter entirely into its own hands. T'Pol gets an unexpected visit from her husband Koss, bringing an artifact from her mother. She is a Syrrannite and is hiding. The artifact shows a map that leads into a dangerous desert known as The Forge, following the same route Surak once did 1800 years ago. Written by

The questions about "Who said 'Logic is the cement of our civilization, with which we ascend from chaos, using reason as our guide'?". and Kiri-kin-tha's laws of Metaphysics that Arev asks Captain Archer are the same as the questions that Spock has to answer in the beginning of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
. Archer does not know the answer to the logic question, but the answer Spock gives the computer in "Voyage Home" is "T'plana-hath, Matron of the Vulcan philosophy". See more
When Admiral Forrest and Ambassador Soval are walking together in the Earth embassy you can see the column which falls during the explosion leaning out before the explosion takes place. Neither Forrest nor Soval react to the leaning column until the explosion, although you can hear distant explosions before the near one erupts. See more
