  • Many things went right in this middle episode of the Vulcan trilogy.

    Middle children sometimes get grief from both sides. In this case thought, the middle child excels. While this story flies in the face of all previous Star Trek notions of Vulcans, it still succeeds in making exciting television. T'Pau attempts to forcibly remove Surak's katra from Archer. She is unsuccesful . However the experience triggers a vision for Archer about an ancient Vulcan artifact. Archer, T'Pol and T'Pau enter an ancient Vulcan tomb and retreive. Meanwhile, the totally uncharacteristic Vulcan gone wild leader has begun bombing the secret hiding place. T'Pol's mother is killed during the blasts. Great acting and a great storyline are in evidence here. The revelation that the Vulcans are going to attack the Andorians is also a great cliffhanger.
