Reed forgot his communicator on a pre-warp world. Good one idiot
So they go back to get it. Reed tells Archer to wait
On this world there is something similar to WWII going on. Archer and Reed are captured and assumed to be spies

Trip and Mayweather prepare a rescue in the Suliban ship they had laying around. It’s nice that the writers remember some of the stuff that’s happened, but they probably could’ve used this several times before now

They find out that Archer and Reed are a different species. Archer thinks it’s a good idea to start pretending to be spies, and that their enemies are way more technologically advanced. Yeah, that won’t mess anything up
This world has hanging just like ours
But then they’re rescued!
