The Xindi Weapon is destroyed as it reaches Earth

Aboard Degra's ship, Archer, Reed and Hoshi work with the Arboreals and Primates to stop the Xindi weapon from launching. Archer plans to destroy the weapon from the inside by overloading the power systems, but he needs Hoshi, who is still recovering from her ordeal with the Reptilians, to decrypt the weapon schematics. Meanwhile, T'Pol leads Enterprise to Sphere 41.
