Admiral Maxwell Forrest is having a discussion with ambassador Soval in the Earth embassy on Vulcan about joint-fleet operations. Then a bomb explodes, killing 43 people including Forrest. The Vulcans suggest Syrrannites, a group that has a different interpretation of the teachings of philosopher Surak, may be responsible and evidence supports that theory. DNA of a certain T'Pau is found on a bomb, a well known Syrrannite. The Vulcan chief investigator Stel however demands that Vulcan takes the matter entirely into its own hands. T'Pol gets an unexpected visit from her husband Koss, bringing an artifact from her mother. She is a Syrrannite and is hiding. The artifact shows a map that leads into a dangerous desert known as The Forge, following the same route Surak once did 1800 years ago.

Some may interpret the dialogue to indicate that the properties of the Forge prevent technology from working, yet wonder why the characters are able to project a holographic rock face to hide the compound. Actually, the statement from Trip is that the electrical sandstorms are the cause (presumably due to static caused by the colliding grains of sand). When this condition is not present, there is no reason for technology not to work. See more
