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.

Did You Know?
Koss delivers T'Pol a piece of Vulcan jewelry called an IDIC. However, the design as shown omits an important element in the IDIC first shown in the original Star Trek: The Original Series
series. T'Pol's IDIC has a round, orb-like gem where the tip of the triangular piece meets the circular piece. The original IDIC had a round gemstone with angular facets, symbolizing the merger of the other two shapes to create something greater than either. This is not necessarily a mistake, as the nature of the gem (including color and surface) is not described. In addition, this IDIC bears Vulcan writing on it whereas that seen in the original series does not, which might indicate that the key elements are the triangle, the circle and the gem, regardless of their appearance.
