On 25 September 2162, Endeavour was at Kemsar Colony, 10 Tauri IV, to bring Admiral Jonathan Archer to talks with the Tandarans, represented by General Valk of the Grentra. As part of an investigation into suspected Suliban terrorism, Valk agreed to be ferried via shuttlepod to Endeavour. Archer understood the Tandaran's reticence to trust Federation transporters and appreciated the opportunity to lay eyes on the Columbia-class starship's hull. Archer and his aide Travis Mayweather piloted the shuttlepod into the bay located to the side of the pylon connecting Endeavour's secondary hull with the saucer section.
