Episode cast overview:
Arev, aka Syrran


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 Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


The character of T'Pau is the same as the Vulcan priestess featuring in Star Trek: Amok Time (1967). Kara Zediker had not yet been cast as T'Pau when 'The Forge' was filmed, so her picture was later edited into the shot of the computer screen. See more »


The Forge properties prevent technology from working, yet they are able to project a holographic rock face to hide the compound. See more »

A Vulcan Conspiracy?
29 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An explosion at an embassy kills many earth ambassadors and several Vulcans. Archer and T'Pol are given the task of going to Vulcan to investigate. There is something amiss on the High Council. There is a group of Vulcans who are in defiance of ancient teaching. One of these is T'Pol's mother. She has joined forces with these people. She has been branded a traitor. There are many elements of past Vulcan activity that we have seen before. Apparently, for some, the use of certain elements of the Vulcan history shouldn't be put before us. What I enjoyed is that the rebel peoples are really interesting. Also, a rebel who aids Archer and his Vulcan first officer, dies in the effort but transfers information to Archer as he breathes his last.
