Aprile 2153: Una sonda degli Xindi attacca la Terra, tracciando una linea di distruzione di 4.000 chilometri, dalla Florida al Venezuela, provocando circa sette milioni di vittime. Quando Archer scopre che gli Xindi hanno inviato quella sonda per distruggere l'intero pianeta in un attacco successivo, l'Enterprise inizia una pericolosa missione verso la misteriosa Distesa Delfica per bloccare l'attacco finale alla Terra. Benché T'Pol riceva dall'Alto Comando vulcaniano l'esplicito ordine di non partecipare a questa missione, la Vulcaniana rassegna le proprie dimissioni per poter continuare il suo compito sull'Enterprise. Nel frattempo i Klingon si mettono sulle tracce dell'Enterprise con l'intento di uccidere Archer.
Ramirez: What the hell was that all about?
Archer: A Klingon named Duras. He's not very fond of me. [T:11:44]
T'Pol: The High Command has made it clear that they don't want me to enter the Delphic Expanse.
Phlox: I'm more interested in hearing what you want.
T'Pol: It's not my place to disobey the High Command.
Phlox: Nonsense! You've done it before. It's interesting: you and I, the only aliens on board this vessel. To go or to stay? For me it was a simple question of loyalty toward the Captain, and the realization that he'll need me more than ever in such a crucial mission. But for you it's a more difficult decision. You must choose between the High Command or Captain Archer. [T:22:35]
Soval: There have been reports of fierce and dangerous species, unexplained anomalies, in some regions even the laws of physics don't apply. Twenty years ago a Klingon vessel emerged from the expanse: every crewman on board had been anatomically inverted, their bodies splayed open, and they were still alive. You'd be more than foolish to pursue this course of action.
T'Pol: I don't understand why I can't stay in San Francisco.
Soval: You've spent far too much time with Humans. It would be best if you return home for a while.
T'Pol: You thought it was crucial to place a Vulcan on Enterprise during its first mission. Why not now?!
Soval: You were there to provide logic to a crew of humans who insisted on leaving before they were ready. But logic can't help them inside the Delphic Expanse.
T'Pol: Can you be certain of that?
Soval: The High Command was quite specific. You're to return to Vulcan.
T'Pol: I believe that should be my decision.
Soval: This is not a matter of choice. Defying the High Command would mean immediate dismissal, you know that. [T:27:02]
Tucker: How's Porthos hold'n'on? If no people returned from the Delphic Expanse, I doubt any dogs have.
Archer: He must be doing better than we are. He's fast asleep. [T:29:23]
Tucker: To Henry Archer. I wonder what he would have thought if he knew his engine was gonna help save the human race.
Archer: When I got this job, commanding the first warp flight ship was about as big a responsibility as I could have imagined. Then we began running into so many... bad guys, and I had to start thinking more about the safety of 83 people.
Tucker: And now the stakes have gotten a lot bigger. [T:30:06]
T'Pol: I want to remain aboard Enterprise, if you allow me to.
Archer: Is not a question of my allowing you. The High Command would never agree to it.
T'Pol: I've decided to resign my commission.
Archer: Why? You've worked so hard, T'Pol.
T'Pol: You're taking Enterprise in a very dangerous place. This is no time for me to leave.
Archer: We'll be alright.
T'Pol: You need a science officer, whether she's a member of the High Command or not.
Archer: I've been thinking about who to promote.
T'Pol: You need me, Captain. [T:33:57]
Duras: Surrender, or be destroyed!
Archer: Go to hell! [T:38:11]
Reed: Photonic torpedoes! Their range is over 50 times greater than our conventional torpedoes, and they have a variable yield. They can knock the comm array off a shuttlepod without scratching the hull, or they can put a three-kilometre crater into an asteroid.
