Episode Title: "CHOSEN REALM"
Production Number: 064
Original Air Date: 01-14-04
The Enterprise is studying another large sphere, identical to the others in the Expanse, when it is contacted by a Triannon ship transmitting a distress signal.
D'Jamat, the Pri'Nam of the religious pilgrims from Triannon who worship the ancient spheres, calls the Delphic Expanse the "Chosen Realm," and believes the Makers of the spheres are gods. His followers have organic explosives in their bodies, and they take over the Enterprise to use it in their religious war against heretics.
D'Jamat learns that the Enterprise has desecrated three spheres. He deletes all data the Enterprise has collected on the spheres, and orders Archer to pick one of his crew members to die. Archer volunteers himself, but asks that D'Jamat let him use the transporter for the execution.
After Archer dematerializes, D'Jamat continues his mission to destroy all heretics, who believe the Chosen Realm was created in ten days, while D'Jamat and his followers believe it took nine days.
Archer secretly moves around the Enterprise, helping Dr. Phlox neutralize the organic explosive in D'Jamat's followers. The Enterprise crew then re-takes control of the ship, and Archer returns D'Jamat and his followers to Triannon, where all major cities were destroyed eight months ago, and millions of people are dead.
Factoid: Triannon is 6.3 light-years from the sphere, in the Muratas Star Cluster.
