  • This episode was voted the most popular episode by fans during the push to the Enterprise series finale in 2005.
  • Archer was infected by subspace parasites, which can't be removed except by a subspace implosion. Phlox discovers that destroying the parasites in the present time also destroys them in the past. Once the parasites are destroyed after Archer causes a warp core breach, the timeline resets to normal.
  • In the alternate timeline, Starfleet gave T'Pol a field promotion to Captain. After destroying Earth, the Xindi hunted down the remaining human colonies. Less than 6000 humans remained. They settled on Ceti Alpha V. (Unfortunately, Ceti Alpha V will be destroyed later as seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan). After T'Pol resigns to take care of Archer on the surface, Tucker is promoted to Captain.
