Trip: "I dunno. I'd be more confortable with Porthos on the bridge."
Breezy looks up (presumably at her trainer, off camera).
< Door chime >
Archer: (gulping down his drink) "Here we go...
T'pol, entering: "This confirms that I was transferred to your command at 0800 hours. Reporting for duty."
There's that cute reaction from Porthos again.
Archer: (to T'Pol, who briefly glanced at the dog)
"Is there a problem?"
T'pol: "No, sir."
Archer: "Oh, I forgot... Vulcan females have a heightened sense of smell.
I hope Porthos isn't too offensive to you."
T'pol: "I've been trained to tolerate offensive situations."
Trip: "I took a shower this morning. Howabout you Cap'n?"
Archer: "I'm sorry... This is Commander Charles Tucker III. Subcommander T'pol."
Extends a hand...
"Trip. I'm called Trip."
T'pol: "I'll try to remember that."
Archer: "While you may not share our enthusiasm about this mission, I expect you to follow our rules... What's said in this room and out on that Bridge is privileged information.
I don't want every word I say being picked apart the next day by the Vulcan High Command."
T'pol: "My reason for being here is not espionage. My superiors think I can assist you."
Archer: "Your superiors don't think we can flush a toilet without one of you to 'assist' us."
T'pol: "I didn't request this assignment, captain. And you can be certain that when this mission's over, I'll be as pleased to leave this ship as you'll be to have me go-"
Porthos: "uwwww!" (jumps up T'pol's leg)
T'pol: "If there's nothing else..."
Archer: "That'll be all."
Admiral Forrest: "When Zephram Cochrane made his legendary warp flight 90 years ago and drew the attention of our new friends, the Vulcans, we realized we weren't alone in the Galaxy. Today... We are about to cross a new threshold. For nearly a century, we've waded ankle-deep in the ocean of space. Now it's finally time to swim."
Forrest: "The Warp 5 engine wouldn't be a reality without men like dr. Cochrane and Henry Archer, who worked so hard to develop it. It's only fitting that Henry's son, Jonathan Archer will command the first starship powered by that engine."
(Crew applauds again)
(Archer and Forrest nods to each other, and the crew leaves the hall)
Forrest: "Rather then quoting dr. Cochrane, I think we should listen to his own words, from the dedication ceremony for the Warp 5 complex, 23 years ago."
Recording of Cochrane: On this site, a powerful engine will be built. An engine that will someday help us travel a hundred times faster than we can today. Imagine it. Thousands of inhabited planets at our fingertips. And we'll be able to explore those strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations. This engine will let us go boldly where no man has gone before.
Cypia tinted scene of Archer's Dad floating an anti-grav unit. He catches it and hands it to his son, who slots it into the moonshuttle model we saw being painted earlier.
Cut to Captain Archer, coming out of his daydream...
"Mister Mayweather... take her out, straight and steady."
Docking moorings break away and the ship slips free of it berth. We see the name Enterprise on the hull and a spacesuited person on a high girder watches the starship pass below.
(Enterprise leaves spacedock)
(Cut to Engineering)
Archer: "How we doing, Trip?"
