the way, the captain was kidnapped by Silik, who brought him before the mysterious humanoid figure that controls the Suliban Cabal. The figure gave Archer information about the attack, telling him that the Xindi had received information that Earth would one day destroy their homeworld. According to the mysterious figure, they are currently at work on a much larger weapon. Armed with this information, Archer asks Starfleet for a new mission: Enterprise must venture to the perilous Delphic Expanse, where the Xindi are located.
As Archer prepares to face this dangerous new foe, he can at least take comfort in his crew, which has proved to be one of the most loyal in the galaxy. Archer is clearly becoming the prototype for every Starfleet captain to come, perhaps for centuries. As he goes boldly into the unknown, making history with every light-year, Jonathan will never forget what his father used to tell him while they were flying model spaceships on the beach: "You can't be afraid of the wind. Learn to trust it."
T'Pol, Former Sub-Commander (Played by Jolene Blalock)
Profile: Report of Starfleet Diplomatic Relations Office
The Vulcans insisted that T'Pol oversee Enterprise's voyages and refused to supply starcharts unless this demand was met. This is not a position for which T'Pol volunteered. Her skill as a science officer is unquestioned, but working alongside primitive and irrational humans is an ongoing lesson in Vulcan patience. T'Pol and Archer often disagree, but are gradually learning mutual respect.
During her first year aboard the human vessel, T'Pol defied her critics - humans and Vulcans alike - who thought she wouldn't last. She surprised the Enterprise crew on its maiden voyage when Captain Archer was injured and she took command of the ship by continuing the mission he set out to accomplish, rather than simply returning to Earth after the Klingon Klaang was captured by Suliban agents.
Her interactions with Enterprise crewmates were initially filled with disdain and mistrust, but after working together on various missions, these early rocky relations improved substantially - T'Pol has formed relationships with Dr. Phlox, the only other non-human onboard, and Captain Archer. Though she may not always agree with the captain's style of command, she cannot help but respect him. At the captain's suggestion, she has also attempted to fraternize more with the crew, and even attended one of the ship's regular movie nights. T'Pol was surprised to find herself enjoying the movie: "Frankenstein." She later noted that she sees it as parallel to the experience Vulcans had when they first landed on Earth.
