An unknown probe fires on Earth from space, cutting a swath from Florida to Venezuela. Everything in the path of the attack was destroyed, resulting in the deaths of seven million humans including Tucker's younger sister Elizabeth. Enterprise is recalled to Earth for upgrades to the ship and to take on military crewmen. Silik gives Archer a message from the future about Earth's latest enemy. The Klingon Empire gives Duras another chance to capture Archer. Enterprise heads for infamous and dangerous Delphic Expanse.

When the Enterprise first comes into Earth orbit we can see the swath as a black line starting in Florida (a little west of Lake Okeechobee south to Everglades National Park and across the Keys). Cuba is covered by a cloud in the shot, but we saw it hit at the start. Following a straight path, the black swath clearly ends by going through Panama (east of Panama City), not Venezuela as stated. And, no, that's not the canal, it's west of Panama City. See more
Surrender, or be destroyed.
