Archer is hand-picked by Shran to serve as the negotiator between the Andorians and Vulcans in yet another tense territorial dispute. Ambassador Soval is suspicious of why Shran is insistent on Archer’s presence, but reluctantly goes along. Though Archer barely understands the conflict, he does his best to get the two parties to talk, and he believes that both Shran and Soval are sincere in their desire to settle the matter peacefully. So who is trying to derail the talks, bringing the Vulcans and Andorians precariously close to the brink of war?
