A temporal chamber was a room aboard a Suliban helix that allowed audio and minimal visual communications between Cabal soldiers and a mysterious figure from the 28th century. The room produced a strange "pre-echo" effect, in which it appeared that one could see things happen seconds before they actually did. This resulted in the room and everything in it being distorted and some events happening in somewhat slowed or fast motion. It was also dangerous to fire at least certain directed energy weapons in the room, an example being phase-pistols. If such a weapon was fired, the initial energy beam was made harmless before a subsequent and more intense pulse would surge through the beam and result in a shockwave throughout the room.

When Silik was temporarily unable to contact his master, Captain Jonathan Archer used the chamber to make his way back to his time from the 31st century, using an advanced technology provided by Crewman Daniels that was able to temporarily transform the chamber into a means by which one could physically travel through time. According to Daniels, the technology was something his people learned in high school and modifying a communicator and hand scanner to have a similar effect wasn't terribly difficult with the right tools such as an amount of copper. After returning to his own time, Archer destroyed the chamber and the device from Daniels' quarters used to allow him to return to his own time. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II")
