The Andorians destroyed the Vulcan P'Jem sanctuary and the Vulcans are not very happy. They think Archer is to blame because he discovered with the Andorians that P'Jem was actually a Vulcan listening post. Ambassador Soval suspends all joint fleet operations and admiral Forrest has to tell the bad news to Archer: T'Pol is being recalled. Archer takes her on one final mission, a visit to the planet Coridan. Their shuttle pod is shot down however and Archer and T'Pol are taken hostage by a rebel faction opposing the government.

It's Vulcan behaviour Jim, but not as we know it
23 August 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Archer and T'Pol are taken hostage on the planet Coridan.

This is another strong episode from the Vulcan/Andorian/Human story arc that began during the 'Andorian Incident'. The Andorians are again good value for their screen time and Archer is great when involved in these politics. As previously this is not the best portrayal of the Vulcans (aside from T'Pol) and is probably not a good one for the Trek purists who like their Vulcans as they were established earlier in the franchise.

It has quite an action packed plot, but also contains good character moments for Archer, T'Pol and Tucker. Archer and T'Pol play off each other well during the intimate moments of captivity and Tucker is excellent facing off against the Vulcans during his time in command.

Things really come to life when the rescue mission gets underway and the fun peaks when Shran arrives. The only bit I struggled with was T'Pol's moment of heroism. I thought to myself, please don't got down that cliched route, but they did. However, that did set things up well for a nice final scene in sickbay.
