  • Trivia

    • 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.

  • Quotes

    • 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!

    • Shran: (to Soval) Join me in a drink to celebrate our mutual dissatisfaction.

    • Archer: Just keep them occupied. (weapons blast nearby) Really occupied or I'm not gonna get very far.

    • T'Pol: We need to reduce our speed.
      Archer: The ground is going to do that for us.

    • Archer: I believe someone once defined compromise as a solution that neither side is happy with.
      Shran: In that case, these talks have been extremely successful.
