Notes
  • Part 1 of 2.
  • The virus was created by the Klingons using DNA from the Human Augments in trying to create a Klingon Augment. One of the test subjects had the Livodian flu and the virus mutated. They tried to get Dr. Arik Soong, but were unable, so they took Phlox instead.
  • Archer walks T'Pol through her mind meld with Hoshi.
  • After Reed is caught in a lie and erases the Rigellian black box, Archer relieves him from duty and throws him in the brig pending court-martial.
  • Admiral Gardner has replaced Admiral Forrest as the commander of the fleet.
  • Kelby has replaced Tucker as the Enterprise Chief Engineer.
  • Hernandez has to remind Tucker to replace the Enterprise patch on his arm with a Columbia patch.
  • Hernandez served on the Republic under Captain Jennings before she received command of the Columbia.
