While investigating a mysterious surge of energy with the shuttle-pod, Archer and Travis are captured by the distrustful and hostile Tandarans and sent to a detention complex in a remote planet. The warden Colonel Grat explains the misunderstanding, explaining that they are in war against the Suliban terrorist organization The Cabal, and that the inmates are pacific Suliban relocated temporarily for their own safety. He claims that he has no authority to release the earthlings and they should be sent to the central magistrate office in Tandar Prime as a simple bureaucratic formality. However, Captain Archer discloses that the interns are held imprisoned due to prejudice against their race and resolves to interfere in the fate of the Suliban.
