Captain Archer is invited to negotiate a cease fire treaty between the Andorians and the Vulcans at the personal request of the Andorian commander Shran. Archer learns the two species are fighting over a small class D planet that the Vulcans call Paan Mokar and the Andorians Weytahn, in the middle of the frontier. Apparently a truce was negotiated a hundred years ago, but it has recently been broken when commander Shran's strike force landed. The negotiations go well and Archer manages to get one of the Vulcan hostages free in return for his promise that he will bring Vulcan ambassador Soval to do further negotiations. But not all Andorians agree with Shran's positive outlook on Archer's negotiating abilities. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Ambassador Soval says he doesn't understand why an officer of the Andorian Imperial Guard would request Captain Archer's presence. But with the events at the P'jem Monastery in Star Trek: Enterprise: The Andorian Incident and Star Trek: Enterprise: Shadows of P'Jem, Ambassador Soval should have been well aware of the connection between Archer and Commander Shran.

Capt. Jonathan Archer: Obviously I'm here at the request of the Andorians. Shran believes he can trust me. I don't intend to prove him wrong by going down there, with a Vulcan officer in tow. If you insist I bring a Vulcan along, I'll take the one I know *I* can trust.

The Pinkskins come to the rescue....
27 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I loved the Andorians on "Star Trek: Enterprise", so it isn't surprising that I liked "Cease Fire". It seems that the Vulcans and Andorians have been fighting over ownership of a crappy little planet for a hundred years. Now, their cease fire has ended, as the Andorians have taken the planet and the Vulcans are sending troops to retake the place. However, the Andorian leader, Shran, has asked that Captain Archer come to the planet with the annoying Vulcan, Soval, so that they can negotiate a peaceful settlement. While this idea is laudable, Shran doesn't realize that many of his troops don't want peace and will do anything to guarantee war! So, as Archer, Soval and T'Pol near the planet, a nasty surprise is waiting for them.

This is a neat episode as it brings back the loathsome Soval and softens him a bit. Likewise, the show has seen Shran evolve from an angry jerk to a reasonable friend. I loved that the characters (even Soval) have been shown to change--and this makes them multidimensional and very interesting.
