Storyline

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 (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

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 Efficient "Pink-Skin" Diplomat
15 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Admiral Forrest advises Captain Archer to travel to the small Class D planet called Weytahn by the Andorians and Paan Mokar by the Vulcans on the border of their empires and motive of a long dispute. The Andorian commander Shran does not trust on the Vulcans and has invited Archer to mediate a negotiation of cease fire with their enemies. Archer and T'Pol meet Shran and he releases one hostage to indicate his good faith in negotiating personally with the Vulcan Ambassador Soval. Archer succeeds to convince Soval to go with T'Pol and him to the planet, but they are attacked by Andorians that do not believe in a peaceful solution for the situation.

"Cease Fire" is one of the best episodes of the Second Season. The story has action, good dialogs (I personally liked the dialog between Soval and T'Pol) and a great peaceful message of peace and understanding in the end. The "pink-skin" Captain Archer proves that is very efficient also as a diplomat, winning the deserved respect from the Andorians and Vulcans. My vote is nine.
