I'm going on the assumption that just about everyone has seen Season 3. Crucial to this story is that the Reptilians had forced Hoshi to help them decrypt other Xindi species' launch codes for a weapon to destroy Earth. This story starts with the Reptilians towing the weapon toward Earth. They are pursued by Captain Archer, Malcolm and Hoshi on the ship of the deceased Primate leader, Degra, who had designed the weapon. Aiding them are Primate and Arboreal Xindis who realized that the transdimensional beings they call Guardians had tricked them. Meanwhile, Enterprise is off trying to bring down the Guardians' network of spheres which is transforming space for their use.
I must give credit to Rick Berman and Brannon Braga for writing Zero Hour. I have used dialogue from that episode in this story.
