Archer and the NX-01 contact the Fazi, a species on a planet where a delicate balance of control is disrupted by the crew's contact attempt.


From the book jacket
The Fazi, whose ultraregulated culture ranges from strict conversation protocols to unvarying building designs, inhabit half of a planet discovered by Enterprise. But after a disastrous first contact with the ruler of the Fazi, Archer must depend on Vulcan science officer T'Pol and communication specialist Hoshi Sato to help mend relations with the people of this planet, and unravel the mystery of the other creatures living on the world.

  • Ensign Hoshi Sato is mostly referred to as Ensign Hoshi. Crewman Cutler is referred to as an ensign in this book, though in her appearances on the show she is an enlisted crewmember. Novakovich appeared on the show with the first name Ethan, not Alex as written here.
