  • Quotes (9)

    • Soval: (to Archer) Captain, your presence here has not been overly meddlesome. (Soval leaves) Shran: I think he likes you, pinkskin. Archer: I wouldn't go that far.

    • Trip: I don't like pushing the engines this hard. The injectors are running at 110%. T'Pol: They're rated for one hundred and twenty. Trip: Yeah, and my underwear is flame retardant. That doesn't mean I'm going to light myself on fire to prove it. Archer: I think we'll make it in one piece Trip.

    • Archer: The ball's in your court now. (Soval looks confused) T'Pol: It's a human expression... it means the next move is yours.

    • Archer: No offense, but my ears are less likely to draw fire than yours. (Archer leaves) Soval: What is their fixation with our ears? T'pol: I believe they're envious. Soval: Do you realize that you've picked up a slight human accent?

    • Archer: Maybe we're not out here to just scan comets and meet new 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 approve or not!

    Notes (1)

    • Two of the actors who play Andorians in this episode previously played Vorta in Deep Space 9. Jeffrey Combs, of course, played Weyoun, while Christopher Shea played Keevan in "Rocks and Shoals" and "The Magnificent Ferengi".

    Trivia (3)

    • Archer's love for Andorian Ale continues to be demonstrated in the future epsiodes: "Proving Ground" and "Babel One"

    • Nitpick: Although it was Soval that negotiated the original treaty, his presence here seems out of place, considering that he's the Vulcan ambassador to Earth.

    • Nitpick: There are several references to the fact that Andorians and Vulcans came into conflict over the planet "a century" or "100 years" ago. That would be about 2052-2053. But then it's stated the Vulcans tried to claim the planet in 2097, and that Soval had been on the planet for 50 years.
