Production Number: 059
Original Air Date: 10-29-03

Synopsis: The Xindi-Primate scientist Degra prepares to test his planet-destroying weapon, but needs another shipment of kemocite to make it work. If the test is successful, the weapon can be deployed in a matter of weeks.

The Enterprise approaches the Xindi colony whose location was supplied by Tarquin. Captain Archer, Lieutenant Reed, and Major Hayes land a shuttle pod on the planet, where they find a factory run by Xindi-Arboreals to synthesize kemocite, a multiphasic isotope to be shipped to Degra to complete the weapon.

Dr. Phlox studies the bio-mechanical technology used in Xindi hand weapons, and finds that delta radiation can destroy the guns' organic components, but omicron radiation feeds the organic components.

Captain Archer contacts a Xindi-Arboreal who manufactures kemocite, but he knows nothing about the weapon Degra is building. Degra and Xindi-Reptilian soldiers arrive at the colony to pick up the refined kemocite, and Captain Archer places a radioactive tag in the shipment so it can be tracked.

  • Factoid: There was once a sixth sentient species of Xindi -- the Avians -- who have been extinct since the geologically unstable Xindi homeworld was destroyed in a civil war by the Xindi-Reptilians and Xindi-Insectoids. Surviving members of the other five Xindi species are scattered across the Delphic Expanse.

  • Guest Characters: Degra, Major Hayes
    Alien Races: Xindi-Primates, Xindi-Reptilians, Xindi-Arboreals
