The „Andorian Incident“ has belated consequences: Annoyed Vulcans plan to blame T’Pol for Enterprise discovering their spy-monastery, and to relieve her of her post. When Captain Archer takes her on one last away mission to what seems to be a mere bunch of peace-loving people, some less peace-loving rebels capture them and request a ransom. In marches the Vulcan relief vessel, whose captain turns out all too eager to settle such problems with a brandished gun. The Daring Duo, Tucker/Reed, attempt a rescue mission of their own, and find unexpected support in the Andorians who wish to repay their debt. When the Vulcans start their assault simultaneously, things barely evolve to the good, but a leftover rebel has one laser shot left in store, aimed at the Vulcan commander. T’Pol saves him by taking that wound herself. While she is unconscious in sickbay, Archer uses her heroics to bargain her out of the accusations raised against her.
