T'Pol gets a message from the Vulcan High Command that a certain Menos has been located. She tells captain Archer he will get a message from Starfleet that Enterprise must help her, but she remains very secretive about her actual mission. Then she decides she wants Archer on the mission, because she trusts him, and tells him the story. Menos apparently was part of a group of 119 surgically altered Vulcan agents assigned to an alien planet. But many didn't want to return. T'Pol was assigned to capture seven of them, but Menos escaped her on Risa. While Archer, T'Pol and Travis take a shuttle pod to pick up the fugitive, the command of the ship falls to Trip. He seems to be having quite some trouble with that. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

It is not logical for the Vulcan High Command to send T'pol on this mission considering they should be aware that related memories had been purposefully repressed and that this would risk the return of those memories while executing the mission. See more »

Decent enough story but more revisionist Vulcan history and high emotion
4 September 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

T'Pol is given a classified mission to capture a Vulcan renegade.

The plot is relatively intriguing, if somewhat predictable, but this is probably Jolene Blalock's best performance so far in the series. She has to release quite a bit of repressed emotions in certain scenes and she does it well. It's also nice to see Archer and T'Pol bonding.

Bruce Davidson gives a pretty solid performance as Menos, but I'm not sure the character ever feels that he was at one point a Vulcan, but I don't think that is the actor's fault, it's more to do with the material.

The other members of the crew don't have much of a contribution to make other than a mildly funny subplot. Mayweather is part of the away mission but is not given anything tangible to do as usual.

I think the likability of this episode depends on how someone cares to see Vulcan characters behaving emotionally and doesn't take umbrage with the writers revising established Vulcan cultural practises. Although the reasons are clearly explained within the plot, I'm not sure it ever feels right to me.

Call me a boring old traditionalist but the only Vulcan emotional display I ever enjoyed was Spock's outburst at the end of Amok Time and that's because they showed his immediate realisation and self correction. That worked well.

I can see how a lot of the show's unpopularity stems from it's take on Vulcan characters and it's hard to disagree with it based on what I've seen so far.
