The CGI model of Qu'Vat colony is a slightly modified reuse of the digital model created for Zobral's encampment in the first season's Star Trek: Enterprise: Desert Crossing (2002). See more »


As T'Pol is leaving Trip's quarters, at the beginning of the episode, we hear the door buzz or chirp, indicating that she has pressed the button to open the door. But we can still see her hands clasped behind her back as the sound occurs. See more »


Antaak: You must forgive the General's conduct. The warrior caste has little use for social protocols.

There are numerous things at work here. First of all, Malcolm is caught between a rock and a hard place because he swore allegiance to a cause before he ever jointed Star Fleet. His actions are seen as treasonous and he is in the brig. Phlox and Hoshi are attacked on a street and the doctor is brought on board a Klingon ship. He has been forced to work on a plague caused by the the Klingons messing around with genetic enhancement. The Enterprise has been boarded by human looking Klingons and damaged. Trip has left Enterprise because he feels he can''t be in love with T'Pol and still work with her. Two of Archer's base crew are unavailable as they attempt to rescue Phlox and fight offer the Klingons.
