Storyline

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 (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Arev transfers his katra to Archer's mind, much like Spock does in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), where just before he dies, Spock transfers his katra to the mind of Dr. McCoy, who carries it until it can be restored to a reborn Spock in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984).

Excellent Episode
21 February 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the United Earth Embassy in Vulcan, Admiral Maxwell Forrest and Ambassador Soval are discussing the technical cooperation between their people when there is a blowup killing thirty-one Earthlings including Forrest and twelve Vulcans. Captain Archer is assigned to investigate the attack and the Vulcan chief investigator Stel suggests the responsibility of the Andorians or the dissident Syranites for the attempt with the support of the Administrator V'Las. Lt. Reed and Ensign Mayweather discover in the debris a hidden bomb that has not exploded with the DNA of the Syranite T'Pau. Meanwhile T'Pol receives from her husband Koss an ancient object delivered by her mother and she finds a map with the location where her mother and the Syranites are hidden in the desert The Forge, a place where technology does not work. Archer and T'Pol head to The Forge to seek out T'Pau. Meanwhile Dr. Phlox discovers that the DNA in the bomb has been manipulated and Ambassador Soval is convinced by Commander Tucker to perform the forbidden mind melt with a survivor to disclose the surprising truth.

"The Forge" is an excellent episode of Enterprise. The screenplay is very well written and the engaging story is a must-see. The chameleon Jolene Blalock is extremely gorgeous in the role of T'Pol and for me she is one of the greatest attraction of this fantastic series. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "No Deserto de Vulcano" ("In the Desert of Vulcan")
