Archer, Tucker and T'Pol pay a visit to the sanctuary of P'Jem. The sanctuary is more than 3000 years old and used for the practice of kolinahr, the Vulcan method of purging emotions. P'Jem doesn't look pristine however. The door seems smashed and inside ornaments are either broken or displaced. It isn't long before they find out the place has been taken over by Andorians, blue humanoids that aren't particularly on friendly terms with the Vulcans. They suspect the sanctuary of P'Jem to be a disguise for a long range sensor array used for spying. Archer and Trip are suspected of collaborating with the Vulcans and put under arrest.

A Place of Solitude and Meditation
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I remember from the original Star Trek we would see an occasional Andorian in a mixed group. Archer decides he would like to see the place where Vulcans have gone for centuries to meditate and restore their emotional distance. But when the Enterprise crew comes to the entrance, they are met by Andorians who are combing the sanctuary, trying to find the Vulcan's spyworks. They are an emotional and violent people, blue in appearance, with antennae on their heads. Archer is repeatedly beaten because they suspect he knows more that he is letting on. They are unable to contact Enterprise because their communicators have been smashed. This could lead to an all-out attack on the facility. Malcolm and his away team are able to get a signal from Trip and arrive. The conclusion is quite interesting.
