Enterprise discovers a class 9 gas giant and Archer orders to take a look. A probe picks up something unusual: a ship is slowly sinking into the atmosphere and at its present rate of descent the pressure will crush the ship in about an hour. Reed and T'Pol are sent to take a shuttle pod and see what they can do for the crew of the ship. At the last moment Hoshi Sato asks to join the mission. She tells Archer she finally found her 'space legs'. After entering the alien ship, Sato quickly sees it is Klingon. The crew seems to be unconscious.

Did You Know?
In previous episodes, T'Pol has made references to using a nasal inhibitor because Vulcans find the scent of Humans intolerable. At the end of this episode, when T'Pol, Reed and Sato are in the decontamination chamber, she claims she smells nothing, indicating that she has become accustomed to the smell of Humans. See more
Malcolm, (the weapons expert), is giving phase pistol lessons to Hoshi. During the lesson, all Bridge officers are called back to their stations. Hoshi makes a comment, so much for practice, and she hands the phase pistol back to Malcolm, her finger still on the trigger, and the muzzle of the phase pistol aimed directly into Malcolm's chest. No matter the century, or the weapon, this action ranks as the #1 safety violation of handling weapons. It is unlikely that Malcolm, the armory expert, would ignore this safety violation and not immediately reprimand Hoshi. See more

Took a while, but I think I finally got my space legs.

I never doubted that you'd find them.
