Enterprise follows a lead and discovers a Xindi lab that refines Kemocite, the key ingredient in the weapon being built to destroy Earth. An away team of Archer, Reed and Hayes confront the lead researcher, Gralik Durr, who was employed by Degra to refine the Kemocite but was never told what it would be used for. When Gralik realizes it was his research that contributed to the 7 million deaths on Earth, he agrees to help Archer prevent further loss of life. Meanwhile, on Enterprise, Phlox and Tucker study the weapon they seized from the Xindi and find an organic component, a life-form serving as the rifle's power cell. Despite T'Pol's objection, Tucker tests the weapon.

When Trip and Dr Phlox say they want to test the weapon, T'Pol says they should pick a better place to test it, and Trip replies that they don't have time to find a deserted asteroid. Apparently they forgot they were behind and uninhabited moon, they could have just gone to the moons surface to test the weapon and thrown it away when it started to overload. They already know there is no security field to detect them. See more
We're preparing to test the weapon on an uninhabited planet in the Calindra system. But we're going to need another shipment of kemocite - at least one hundred kilograms.
I'll contact Gralik. If the test is successful, how long before we can deploy the weapon?
A matter of weeks.
