Episode Title: "DAMAGE"
Production Number: 071
Original Air Date: 04-21-04
The Xindi-Reptilian and Xindi-Insectoid ships abruptly stop attacking, but the Enterprise remains severely damaged. The primary warp coil is destroyed and must be replaced before the ship can move at warp again.
Reptilian Commander Dolim is angry with the Primate and Arboreal members of the Xindi Council for stopping the attack on the Enterprise, and the Council orders that the Xindi-Reptilians turn over Captain Archer, who will be transported to the Council aboard a Xindi-Aquatic ship. The Xindi-Aquatics eject Archer in an escape pod, and he is recovered by the Enterprise.
In the Xindi-Aquatic escape pod, the Enterprise crew finds coordinates for a location four light-years away for a meeting in three days with Degra. The Enterprise will not make the meeting unless it can travel at Warp 3.
The Enterprise encounters an Illyian ship that has been damaged by spatial anomalies. Archer offers the aliens a supply of trellium-D to insulate their hull in exchange for their warp coil, but the Illyian captain says they cannot part with it. Archer decides to take the Illyians' warp coil by force in order to make the meeting with Degra.
Subcommander T'Pol is suffering from agitation and withdrawal from trellium-D injections she has been giving herself for three months in order to experience emotions. Dr. Phlox tells her that he can stabilize her synaptic pathways, but the withdrawal symptoms will return.
The Primate and Arboreal members of the Xindi Council summon a projection of the female "Guardian," and she confirms that she helped the Xindi-Reptilians build a bio-weapon in the past, in order to keep the Xindi Council intact. She does not respond when Degra asks whether her people built the spheres in the Expanse.
