Enterprise agrees to escort Tellarite delegates to peace talks with Andorians. En route they rescue several Andorians who abandoned the ship Kumari, who insist it was Tellarites who attacked them. When Enterprise is soon attacked by the same ship which now appears to be a Andorian ship, Archer must prove to the warring races that a third party must be setting them up to fail at their attempt at peace.

Did You Know?


Archer and Shran enjoy Andorian ale yet again. It was previously seen or mentioned in Star Trek: Enterprise: Cease Fire (2003) and Star Trek: Enterprise: Proving Ground (2004). See more »


The actor who plays Talas in parts of the fight scene is clearly a stunt double with much larger breasts than actor Molly Brink's. When Talas first emerges from her quarters, she is wearing a leotard top that completely covers her breasts, and there is no cleavage. During parts of the fight, her breasts are suddenly quite large and spill out of the top, creating deep cleavage. Later in the fight, her breasts are small again. See more »


Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: There's nothing going on between us anymore if you're interested.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: That's not why I asked.
Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Well, you said she had an awfully nice bum.

Seeds of The Federation
27 May 2009 | by BinkconnSee all my reviews

This trilogy of episodes sees Archer acting as intermediary in peace talks between the Tellerites and the Andorians, essentially forming the core of what would be the 'Star Trek' United Federation of Planets. They seem a bit slow-going at first, and the threat of tiny probe ships seems hardly on par with what Enterprise had to face in the previous episodes' conflict with the Xindi, but they're good in that they show the growing trust between Archer and Shrann (who at one point engage in an exciting duel with razor-like weapons in an ancient Andorian ritual to save Shrann's besmirched honor), and they also provide commentary on society's racial castes in the sub-treatment of the Andorians telepathic Albino people, one of whom is needed to stop the renegade Andorians assassin ships. Good action and heartfelt performances, especially from the Albino Andorian girl and her relationship with the mystery pilot of the evil ship, and yet another example of what a good show we lost in "Enterprise"'s premature cancellation.
