Enterprise follows a lead and discovers a Xindi lab that refines Kemocite, the key ingredient in the weapon being built to destroy Earth. An away team of Archer, Reed and Hayes confront the lead researcher, Gralik Durr, who was employed by Degra to refine the Kemocite but was never told what it would be used for. When Gralik realizes it was his research that contributed to the 7 million deaths on Earth, he agrees to help Archer prevent further loss of life. Meanwhile, on Enterprise, Phlox and Tucker study the weapon they seized from the Xindi and find an organic component, a life-form serving as the rifle's power cell. Despite T'Pol's objection, Tucker tests the weapon. Written by

John Cothran makes his third outing in the Star Trek franchise, this time as Gralik Durr. Fans will recognize his distinctive voice from his appearance as Captain Nu'Daq in ST TNG's season 6 episode "The Chase" where he challenged Lt. Cmd Data in Ten Forward to the Bahat Ghool Challenge and lost. He later appeared once again as Klingon Warrior called Telok in ST DS9's season 2 episode "Crossover" See more
Lieutenant Reed removes a canister of Kemocite from the box on the lab table and shows it to Captain Archer. When he does, there are clearly three canisters to the right of the open spot left by the one he removed and all canisters in the box are aligned perfectly in the same direction. In the subsequent shot of the box, there are now only two canisters to the right of the empty spot, and the canister on the left of the open spot is now rotated at an angle, clearly showing that this scene was done in multiple takes with a different canister being used in each.

We're preparing to test the weapon on an uninhabited planet in the Calindra system. But we're going to need another shipment of kemocite - at least one hundred kilograms.
I'll contact Gralik. If the test is successful, how long before we can deploy the weapon?
A matter of weeks.
