Enterprise encounters a hyper-giant star. While there, they make first contact with the Vissians, a technologically sophisticated race with three genders. While making quick friends, and eagerly learning about the advanced technology, Trip gets curious about the Vissians third gender, known as the Cogenitor, who is crucial in the Vissian reproductive process. Against the wishes of the Vissians, Trip befriends the Cogenitor and encourages it to defy it's cultural boundaries, which the Vissians are made aware of, and are angered by.

Archer tells Drennik that William Shakespeare
only wrote 36 plays. Actually, the number usually given is 37 or 38. There is some dispute about this, as it is not always agreed whether The Two Noble Kinsmen, of which Shakespeare only wrote part (and just how big a part is unclear), should be included. In addition, there are believed to be 2 or 3 additional plays that Shakespeare wrote but were never printed and have thus been lost to us. See more
