A mystery, closed, militaristic society, confident that their survival hangs by way of a thread, who view their buddies as a chance to their very life -- the Spartans of historical Greece, the Russians of the previous Soviet Union, the Koreans less than Kim Il-sung -- with just one objective: reach final strength, irrespective of the fee. The little-known, never-seen Romulans appear to stay via those related rules.
The captain realizes that the bond among the signers of the Coalition constitution is fragile and sure to snap if driven. yet he knows that the Romulans are adverse, and he believes they're the strength in the back of the shipment send assaults. If requested, Archer can supply no evidence with out endangering his friend's existence.
To whom does he owe his loyalty: his buddy, his global, the Coalition? And by means of determining one, does he now not hazard wasting them all? what's the approach to a no-win scenario?

Vance shifted his weight from one buccaneer-booted foot to the other in obvious discomfiture. At length, he said, “Lately we’ve been experiencing a few small…technical problems, Captain Archer. But it’s nothing that Miz Searles can’t handle. ” Mayweather asked.
In the state she’s in right now, Captain, the Maru’s voyage is already over,” Burch said. ” Though Vance looked deflated, his tendency toward bravado hadn’t deserted him entirely. ” Except for the faint clatter of metal forks against lightweight aerogel plates, a sudden hush blanketed the room.
