Storyline

Enterprise is on its way to explore the giant Arachnid Nebula when they rendezvous with a Vulcan ship that has been in space for more than eight years. Its crew is V'tosh ka'tur. That means they have a different interpretation of the teachings of Surak and try to find a balance between logic and emotion instead of suppressing them. Trip starts working on repairs with engineer Kov while captain Archer receives a message from the terminally ill father of Kov. Meanwhile another Vulcan, Tolaris, tries to convert T'Pol to their ways. He wants to do a mind meld with her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Chronologically, this is also the first time the Vulcan mind meld is shown. This episode also establishes that melding is extremely uncommon among Vulcans in the 22nd century, compared to later centuries and that at least some Vulcans have never even heard of the practice. See more »

Goofs

During T'Pol's conversation with Captain Archer in his office, when Archer says, "You've been busy avoiding them," T'Pol is shown from the front holding a pad at chest level. When the shot changes a second later, showing her from her side, she's holding the pad down below her waistline. See more »

Quotes

Tolaris: [contemplating a nebula] Look at that. I've never seen anything so beautiful. You probably consider that an emotional reaction.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Not necessarily. It is aesthetically pleasing.
Tolaris: "Pleasing". Coming from you, that's practically an outburst.

HE WENT TOO FAR...
28 October 2018 | by zitacarnoSee all my reviews

I happened to catch this episode, and it gave me a good look at a Vulcan splinter group called "V'tosh ka'tur"---Vulcans without logic. And I got the distinct impression that some of them don't even have a modicum of good sense in their heads; it seems that they have no idea of how to handle a rotten apple in their midst, as Tolaris evidently was. He assaulted T'Pol when she resisted and pushed him away, which in any circumstances is a crime---and which, unfortunately, still exists in our time.
