1:08 am
derstand the situation, captain. i'm certain the high command will find you a suitable replacement. am i the only one who has a problem with this? because you seem perfectly fine. my assignment to theenterprise was only supposed to last eight days. it was unrealistic to expect it to continue indefinitely. the high command is looking for a scapegoat-- someone to blame. they can't punish me sounds like an emotional reaction, if you ask me. i am largely responsible for what happened. don't give yourself too much credit. i was the one who found p'jem in the database and i led the landing party. i want you to know i'm filing a protest with the high command. that won't make any difference. you don't know that. captain... i was assigned toenterprisenot simply as an observer
1:09 am
it's clear in the eyes of my supepeors i haven't done that. they have no right to do this to you. you're a part of my crew. for another 48 hours. was there anything else? no. ) (door closing) this is just another part of the joke, right? sorry, trip, but i've got to take t'pol on t ts one. i need to spend some time with her alone. now i know you're pulling my leg. t'pol is being transferred. a vulcan ship's on its way to take her back. what?
1:10 am
may i? i just heard about your transfer. i'm sorry you'll be leaving us. i'm sure you'll excel i haven't received another assignment. i assumed you were being promoted. my superiors believe that i'm responsible for the destruction of the p'jem sanctuary. do you agree with their assessment? it's the logical conclusion. i'm certain the high command would reconsider your trtrsfer if they knew everything you've done for this crew. you realize you're not the first vulcan officer to be posted aboard a human starship. the high command has tried this before but none of the others lasted more than a few weeks. they found their crewmates too chaotic and unpredictable. but you've been here more than six months and you haven't merely
1:11 am
isn't it logical to take pride in that accomplishment? "pride" is a human indulgence. i suppososit is. (clears throat) oh, i have it on good authority that several crewmembers are planning a gathering in your honor. i believe it's called a "going-away party." i'd keep on alert if i were you. so... what do you know about coridan? there are three billion inhabitants mostly concentrated in several cities in the equatorial region. i wasn't asking for the ststistics.
1:12 am
kinds of food they eat, what they do for fun. the vulcan database doesn't contain that information. of course not. i'm uncertain why i was chosen for this mission. these people have never seen humans before. it makes sense for someone with a familiar face to make the introductions. i have a lot of work to complete before the vulcan ship arrives. don't worry-- i'll get you back in plenty of time. i just... thought you might enjoy one final mission with your captain. or maybe i should just take you back toenterprise. we're only a few minutes from the capital. returning to t t ship now
1:13 am
tucker (over com): enterpriseto captain archer. go ahead, trip. we're reading a ship closing on you fast. i've got it. some kind of fixed-wing aircraft. did the chancellor say anyththg about sending an escort? (weapons blast) i don't think they're an escort. male (over com): alien vessel. reduce to one-quarter power and adjust heading to three-one-seven mark 5. i'm taking evasive action. bring the plasma weapons on-line. ready.
1:14 am
1:15 am
1:16 am
1:17 am
1:18 am
(water dripping) archer: houdini could get out of this. t'pol: perhaps you should invite him on your next mission. harry houdini was a magician... an escape artist. from any kind of restraint-- ropepechains, anything. that seems unlikely. that's why he was called a magician. some peoeoe say he was double-jointed. i don't suppose vulcans are double-jointed.
1:19 am
a vulcan. what brings you to coridan? if you want answers, talk to me. you're her superior? that's right. i don't recognize your species. i'm human. from the planet earth. never heard of vulcans taking orders from anyone. there's been a misunderstanding. we're here at the invitation of your chancellor. she's notmychancellor. that government is kept in power by the vulcans. if you're with them you're on the wrong side. what kind of weapon is this? if you won't tell me... it's a phase-pistol. we'll put these to good use. i'm curious about your starship.
1:20 am
r can make chicken sandwiches. t'pol: stop! he's not a tactical officer. he's the ship's steward. we're here to prepare a banquet for your chancellor. your people have a reputation for truthfulness. you wouldn't be lying to me, would you, vulcan? now i understand. you're the captain, aren't you? perhaps. whoever you are you picked the wrong time for a visit.
1:21 am
we believe your shuttle was forced down by members of a radical faction. to find. but since the attack took place outside our sensor grid you didn't tell us about any factions. they're a small group. we had no idea they were capable of an attack like this. but be assured, commander your people are almost certainly still alive. almost certainly? the radicals will want something in exchange for the hostages. they always do. side arms, dicobalt explosives. it's important that you don't give them anything. is this how you protect your visitors? you might have told us about your little war before you invited us down. we're not at war, commander. this is an isolalad incident. i don't care what you call it. we just want to know where are people are.
1:22 am
we're not goininto sit on our hands and wait for a ransom note. start scanning for human and vulcan bio-signs. there are billions of people down there. it could take days. it might be easier to locate the shuttlepod. i'll try but if the pod's been powered down it's almost impossible to pick up its signature. we've got to s srt somewhere. ready? yeah. go. (grunts) easy. (both groan) come on. go. (grunting) oh! no! (grunts) i think we got a little highehethat time.
1:23 am
no. good. let's try it again. one, two, three. ready? yes. go. i think these are starting to come loose. how about yours? slightly. each other... we might be able to untie these knots. you'd think that vulcan database
1:24 am
ting a civil war. the database is accurate. the coridan government doesn't view this as a civil war. i imagine your people are going to want their database back, too. well, they can h he it. can you reach the knot? i believe so. without the database you wouldn't have found this planet... or p'jem. you're not responsible for what happened. you didn't have any idea that your people had installed a listening post. or that there were andorian commandos there.
1:25 am
ry. i had the opportunity to protest but i chose not to. it's clear that living among humans has caused my reasoning to become compromised. i think i understand. you're running away because you're afraid to become one of us. i am not running away. then why aren't you fighting this transfer? ng to me. from my father that meant a lot to him.
1:26 am
(grunts) get his weapon. stop! it's definitely a ditanium signature. about four kilometers outside the capital. it's practically under their noses. fromomhat we can tell
1:27 am
by a shantytown. there are almost as many bio-sisis on the outskirts as there are inside the city. looks like these people have a lot to learn about building a free society. have you found human or vulcan bio-signs? not yet. what about the pod's transponder? they must have switched it off. sir, i've got a rescue team standing by in the launch bay. hold on, malcolm. we don't even know if this is our pod. i don't want to go down and find it's some alien tractor. it's our shuttlepod. i'm certain of it. we go down and have a look around. sir, we're being hailed. audio only. who is it? i can't tell. put them through. is thisenterprise? yes. and you are? we're holding your captain and your stewardrd in exchange for their safe return we want 40 of your phase weapons. the same type we found aboard your shuttle. you'll be hailed at this time tomorrow.
1:28 am
y harm to come to her. we'll relyly on you. (static and beep) hello? sato: they've cut transmission. were you able to trace it? they were using a triaxilating signal. they called the captain "her." are we sure they've got the right hostages. at least it sounds like they're still alive. reed: for how long? we don't have 40 phase pistols. we've got 15. and even if we give them to these people there's no guarantee they'll keep their word. we know where the shuttle is. we have to send a team down now while we still have the element of surprise. we're getting another transmission. probably thought of somethihi else they want. it's not from the planet. it's coming from a vulcan ship-- theni'var. put it up. where's captain archer? he's not here right t w. can i help you? inform him that we'll be arriving within the hour. you guys made great time.
1:29 am
you obviously mama an error in your calculations. please have sub-commander t'pol ready to depart when we arrive. we've got a... bit of a problem. she's not here either. she and the captain were on their way to the capital city when they were kidnapped. how convenient. i'm telling you, they were kidnapped. how do you know this? maybe the ransom demand we just received gave us a clue. tened to kill them both if we didn't give them what they want. it would be irrational to kill the hostages. they would lose their negotiating position. maybe we're not dealing with the most rational people down there. did you consider that? since this situation involves a vulcan officer we will take over the investigation. it would be best if you refrained from any foolish endeavors. what the hell's that supposed...?
1:30 am
1:31 am
1:32 am
1:33 am
1:34 am
your vessel is ill-equipped to mount a rescue mission. you would most likely become captives yourselves. my team will penetrate their base of operations. to me like you're planning an assault. did it ever occur to you that that could get the captain and t'pol killed? we've dealt with this sort of threat in t t past. swift, decisive action is the logical response. you're awfully trigger-happy for someone who's repressed his emotions. they've threatened the life of a vulcan officer. we must discourage any such incidents in the future. this isn't your planet. maybe the coridan government has something to say about this. i've already been in contact with the chancelelr.
1:35 am
you probably wouldn't mind if they got caught in the crossfire. you'd consider it payback for what happened at p'jem. it's not vulcan policy to negotiate with terrorists. not even if it saves lives? any data you may have on the location of your captain and the sub-commander would be useful. sorry, we don't have anything. warm up the shuttlepod.
1:36 am
we can't eat like this. friendly. (grunts) (grunts) can yoyopick up yours? no. dig in, sub-commander.
1:37 am
is back for some plomeek broth. i'm not hungry. i didn't ask if you were hungry. you need to keep up your strength so eat. that's an order.
1:38 am
we're being hailed. it's the vulcans. here we go. this is sopek. where's commander tucker? he's unavailable at the moment. can i take a message? i want to know where that shuttlepod was going. what shuttlepod is that? the one that left your launch bay nine minutes ago. r. we get shuttlepods coming and going all the time. it's a little like union station around here. want to know wherere commander .
1:39 am
1:40 am
1:41 am
i guess not everyone gets to live in emerald city. you should have listened to the vulcan. he warned you against doing anything foolish. what the hell are you doing here? looking out for you pink-skins. if you had gone anywhere near that shuttlepod, you'd have been killed.
1:42 am
how do you know what sopek told me? that was a secure transmission. sopek is the senior vulcan officer in the sector. naturally, we keep him under close surveillance. we've been monitoring all vulcan transmissions and ship deployments since the incident at p'jem. we know they're preparing for a war against us. i'm no fan of the vulcans, but they're not warmongers. there's already a war going on several rebel factions here e ties are working to overthrow their government. to your peace-loving, logical friends. so, you and the e bels figure you both have a common enemy. the hostage-takers have no plans to return your captain or the female. once you deliver the weapons, they'll be killed.
1:43 am
with the downtrodden here. you tried to kill us last time we met. why are e u trying to help us now? i haven't... slept well since our encounter at the vulcan sanctuary. i don't like being indebted to anyone least of all your captain. you're right. you never would have found that spy station without his help. once he's free, my debt will be repaid in full. show them. your people are being held here. these are barracks for the guards. how many? at least four inside the compound
1:44 am
all armed with particle weapons. how'd you get this l lel of detail? we have an operative inside the compound. unless he's going to take out these guards you're not going to have an easy time getting all the way to the hostages. it's not your concern. it is if you get the captain killll. you're outnumbered four-to-one. wouldn't you like to improve those odds? they could be useful. give them their weapons. (device beeping) tucker: captain, can you hear me? trip. it's me and malcolm, sir. we're about half a kilometer away. just the two of you? not exactly.y. we met up with some old friends down here: andorians.
1:45 am
er time. one of the people guarding you is working with them. when he unties you, head for the gate. it's abobo 20 meters from the building you're in. until he shows up, just sit tight.
1:46 am
1:47 am
1:48 am
aah. aah...
1:49 am
it'll warm you up. (clanging) who's that? ah, it's just my friend, nothing to... (grunts and groans) tucker: hey, wait a minute! (bottle shatters)
1:50 am
tucker: what the hell is g gng on? (grunts) get down. vulcans! did you know they were planning to do this. you're the ones who have their r mm system bugged. our escape plan's shot to hell.
1:51 am
get them out of there. good to see you, captain. scue party. thanks. i believe this is yours. it's the scanner she gave me from the vulcan listening post. seems you went to a lot of trouble to return it. i'm here for only one reason.
1:52 am
my debt is repaid. your presence here is a violation of the tau ceti accords. youlecture us about treaty violations? sopek: put down your weapons! shran: i know b bter than to lower my guard around vulcans. archer: look, we're all on
1:53 am
let't'get her to the ship. she's no longer your responsibility. we'll treat her on theni'var. she's stillmyscience officer. is the pod close? yes, sir. let's go.
1:54 am
1:55 am
how is she? her injuries were quite extensive. will she live? i wish i could say. i know how you must feel. she saved my life once, too. she can be a real pain in the ass. stubborn... arrogant... sometimes she makes me angry enough i want to shove her out an airlock. i can understand why the high command's upset. but it took a lot of courage to step in front of that plasma bullet.
1:56 am
nothing can exexse what she did at the sanctuary. i'm not asking for anyone to pin a meded on her. all i'm asking is that she be given a second chance. if a respected vulcan captain went before the high command and made a plea on t'pol's behalf-- told them how she saved the life of a superior officer wouldn't they think twice about this transfer? i can't return without her. she suffered extreme trauma. i wouldn't advise moving her for quite some time. i'm meeting with high command in three days.
1:57 am
i'll discuss this matter with them. thank you. (door opens and closes) whoa, whoa, whoa. you were shot. don't you remember? captain sopek? he's all right, thanks to you. i'd like to return to... i'm afraid you're going to have to stay here
1:58 am
you made quite an impression on sopek. i've got a feeling he's going to talk about that transfer order. i'd say the odds are pretty good you're going to be with us for a while longer. you should have consulted me first. it's probably not too late if you want to catch up to him. that won't be possible. leaving sick bay would violate my doctor's orders.
1:59 am
and united paramount networks
2:00 am
doug! don't forget to take out the trash before you go to work. what is that? ng there? the garage is still flooded from the storm. besides, the light's better. where do we eat? we already ate. breakfast, doug. where are we supposed to eat breakfast? there. why do you always do this to me?
2:01 am
like drinking milk out of the carton wiping your mouth on the tablecloth or putting dirty socks behind the toilet. i've told you, men can't get all fired up about being tidy. don't you care about what matters to me? do you care about what matters to me? all that matters to you is eating, sleeping, and burping. all you care about is picking. "don't put wet towels on the bed. "don't clip your toenails on the couch. put the toilet seat down." i don't care where the toilet seat goes! don't you have anything better to do with your time besides pick? you are...
2:02 am
