Storyline

After crossing the desert and surviving the sand storms, T'Pol and Archer confront the Syrranites in the Forge. The pair meet T'Pau, who denies any connection with the embassy bombing and Admiral Forrest's death. Archer, now possessing the mental essence of Surak known as the 'katra', agrees to let T'Pau extract it, even after T'Pol's mother T'Les warns the ritual may kill him. Meanwhile Vulcan administrator V'Las is willing to destroy Enterprise to make sure an attack on the Syrrannites isn't witnessed. Former Ambassador Soval allies with Commander Tucker to try to rescue Archer and T'Pol. Written by Meribor

Trivia

This episode establishes that Surak died of radiation poisoning following the explosion of one or more atomic weapons on Mount Seleya during the the last battle against "those who marched beneath the Raptor's wings" (i.e. those Vulcans that opposed Surak's teaching, eventually becoming the Romulan Star Empire). The allusion of the Raptor's Wing refers to the bird-of-prey symbol that represents the Romulan Star Empire. See more »

Goofs

Phlox refers to one of his patients as "Corporal". However, when reviewing the security footage moments before the security guard Phlox refers to seems to be wearing a Starfleet uniform. Starfleet uses naval rank designations and therefore would not be referred to as corporal. See more »

More exciting stuff about those jerky Vulcans.
14 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode is a continuation of the previous one. In the first episode, the Earth embassy on Vulcan is bombed--and the trail to the culprits leads to a mystical Vulcan cult, the Syrrannites. By the end of the show, you've learned several things--that the Syrrannites are NOT responsible but were set up AND Soval has learned the truth and was, as a result, thrown off the High Council!

At the beginning of this second part, Archer somehow KNOWS how to find the Syrrannites. Their hiding place is well hidden but somehow he goes right to it. How? He has the essence or soul of Surak inside him-- the father of logic and niceness in the Vulcans. At first, the Syrrannites don't believe this but through a mind meld they learn the truth. What's next? See the show...I don't want to spoil anything.

This episode is exciting start to finish and is definitely worth your time. It is a wonderful look at the future of the Vulcans--how they so quickly changed from duplicitous and nasty to swell folks who truly embrace logic. Among the best written of the shows AND it has some really cool corpses in the tunnels late in the program! See this one.
