Using a shuttlepod, Archer and a small team from Enterprise approached Mars behind the comet, hiding in the tail. As the comet began to enter Mars' atmosphere and break up, the team began to experience increasing turbulence and difficulty in maintaining control of the pod. Despite this, the pod's pilot, Travis Mayweather, was able to follow the comet all the way to the surface, breaking away immediately before impact, successfully concealing their approach from Paxton.
