Enterprise visits a trading colony on a planet in the Expanse. A chemist offers to sell them the formula for synthesizing trellium-D, a hull insulation vital for travel through the Expanse. Archer, Reed and Trip trade a variety of Earth spices for the formula. Returning to the shuttle, Archer passes a pimp selling sex slaves. One of the slaves, Rajiin, runs from the pimp and begs Archer to help her escape. On board, Rajiin uses her charm to make contact with several crew members.
