Enterprise has arrived at the location of the Xindi Council and with the help of Degra, Archer can make his plea in front of the five races of Xindi. Archer needs to prove that the Sphere Builders have been telling lies. While the Primates and Arboreals are already aware of the truth, convincing the other three races will not be easy. The Reptilians and Insectoids refuse to even listen to Archer. Meanwhile, the Sphere Builders haven't been sitting still, and have arranged a secret meeting with the Reptilians.

During the EVA inside the sphere Mayweather is seen in the shuttle wearing his standard uniform. Because the shuttle has no airlock it would need to be depressurized to open the door. Mayweather would need to wear some kind of pressure suit. Even if the shuttle could be re-pressurized after the others are out he would need to keep the suit on in case the away team suffered an accident and needed to get back inside quickly. For this reason they would almost certainly keep the door open. See more »


Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I can't believe I actually feel bad about Degra. Twenty-four hours ago, I would've been celebrating.
Captain Jonathan Archer: A lot can happen in a day.

Sometimes Negotiations Are as Exciting As Combat
27 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Once again it comes to the five Xindi entities trying to agree on something. The Reptilians and the Insectoids are the more combative of the species. The Aquatics are the most interesting of all. They are the designers and the intellects (dolphins) and constructed the device. The biggest problem is that the sphere builders, who continually take credit for everything that the Xindi had accomplished, have their own agenda. They can manipulate time and react when things don't go as they wished. They are a bit like the gods on Mt. Olympus, who caused events to take place and then reacted. The two war factions are formidable and stupid and shortsighted. The next episode should show how the alliance can function with the sixth entity, Earth, in the middle.
