2152: A causa della disputa sulla proprietà di un piccolo pianeta terraformato, le relazioni tra Andoriani e Vulcaniani si deteriorano al punto da sfociare in un conflitto armato. Nel mezzo della lotta, i Vulcaniani annunciano di voler trattare i termini di un cessate il fuoco con gli avversari, ma Shran dichiara che l'unico mediatore che potrebbe condurre i negoziati di cui ha fiducia è Jonathan Archer, che viene quindi chiamato a dirimere la disputa.
T'Pol: Its sole value is its strategic location near Vulcan space.
Archer: They were setting up a military base.
T'Pol: It was the only logical conclusion.
Tucker: Was there any evidence?
T'Pol: How much evidence would you need if the Klingons decided to set up a colony on Pluto? [T:04:29]
Shran: I know my men are willing to die, I wanna hear their chances of surviving!
Tucker: I don't like pushing the engines this hard. The injectors are running at 110%.
T'Pol: They're rated for 120.
Tucker: Yeah, and my underwear is flame-retardant. That doesn't mean I'm gonna light myself on fire to prove it.
Muroc: We've regained control of half the colony, but two dozen Vulcans have been wounded and three have been taken hostage.
Soval: Shran has agreed to discuss terms for their safe return, but only if you act as a mediator. For some reason he finds you trustworthy.
Archer: You're asking for my help...
Soval: Yes, Captain, I'm asking for your help.
Archer: I'll see what I can do!
Soval: Forgive my candor, but that's hardly reassuring. The last time you dealt with the Andorians, a Vulcan intelligence site was compromised and a priceless monastery destroyed. [T:06:48]
Archer: Maybe we're not out here to just scan comets and meet species. Maybe we're out here to prove that humanity is ready to join a much larger community. I intend to do that, whether the Vulcans like it or not. [T:08:56]
Archer: I imagined my first diplomatic mission would involve sitting around a big table, toasting with champagne, signing things with lots of pens.
Shran: The pinkskins' sense of humor. [T:13:14]
Archer: You claim the Andorians are inflexible. At least they're willing to sit down and talk.
T'Pol: ... 100 meters... 50. We need to reduce our speed.
Archer: Ground is gonna do that for us. Brace yourselves!
Tucker: We wanna be involved in any rescue operation.
Muroc: We have more experience in these matters.
Tucker: I know. I once saw one of your commando units blast the hell out of a rebel compound during a rescue mission.
Archer: For the record: the Vulcan High Command doesn't like me very much. And frankly the feeling is mutual. [T:15:49]
Soval: Didn't you hear the Captain? The ball is in our court. [T:18:42]
Soval: Are you that naive? Shran is using you!
Archer: This is a man who couldn't sleep because he thought he owed me something. I don't believe he asked me to come a dozen light years just so I could lead you into a trap. [T:22:57]
Archer: I'll take a look. Stay here.
Archer: That's an order! No offense but my ears are less likely to draw fire than yours.
Soval: What is their fixation with our ears?
T'Pol: I believe they're envious.
Soval: You realize you picked up a slight Human accent? [T:27:04]
T'Pol: Just because Captain Archer has earned my respect, doesn't mean I've been contaminated by his emotions. [T:28:22]
Archer: Drop your weapon! I've never fired one of these before... I'm not sure if it's set on stun. T'Pol! Cease fire!
Tarah: It doesn't have a 'stun' setting.
Tucker: I'll open fire on any ship that makes an aggressive move. Phase cannons?
Reed: Locked and ready.
Muroc: This is not a Starfleet matter.
Tucker: As long as my Captain is stuck in the middle of your war zone, it is. [T:35:39]
Archer: I believe someone once defined a compromise as a solution that neither side is happy with.
Shran: In that case, these talks have been extremely successful...
Soval: I consider any negotiation that averts war to be a success.
Shran: Join me in a drink to celebrate our mutual dissatisfaction.
Soval: Vulcans don't drink. But this occasion merits an exception.
Shran: To the cease fire that wouldn't been possibile without the help of our human friends.
Soval: And to the successful continuation of these talks on Andoria.
Shran: I trust there'll be more accomplish than just talk. [T:39:54]
Soval: Captain. Your presence here... has not... been... overly meddlesome.
Shran: I think he likes you, pinkskin.
Archer: I wouldn't go that far. [T:41:22]
Pianeti: Paan Mokar
