Phlocks [OC]: It's Doctor Phlocks, Captain. I need to see you right away.
ARCHER: Did you find something?
Phlocks: As a matter of fact, I did. This is not Ensign Mayweather.
PHLOX: It's a nearly perfect replica. I've never seen a lifeform duplicated in such extraordinary detail, from its epidermis down to its cellular proteins. This is remarkable work.
ARCHER: If it's so perfect, how do you know it's not him?
PHLOX: You recall what happened to Crewman Fisher last month after our visit to Tessik Prime?
ARCHER: He came down with Rigelian fever.
PHLOX: I inoculated the entire crew to prevent an outbreak. Would you mind rolling up your sleeve? (puts a cuff over Archer's wrist and shows his bloodstream on the monitor) The vaccine contained millions of genetically altered microbes. Most of them are still in your bloodstream. They typically survive for, oh, at least several weeks. (does the same for the body) Every one of the alien microbes in this body is dead.
ARCHER: Couldn't they have been killed by the isolytic shock?
PHLOX: These microbes thrive on isolytic energy. If anything, they would have multiplied. I believe that someone, or something, has abducted Ensign Mayweather and left this facsimile in his place.
Archer: Apparently bulkheads aren't the only thing this station can replicate.
Phlocks: It's ironic, in a way. The station can duplicate a dead human body in all its exquisite detail yet a living, simple, one-celled organism is beyond its capability.
T'POL: I've located Ensign Mayweather's parents.
ARCHER: You'd better hold off. Their son may still be alive. You and Trip managed to get pretty far inside the station. How close do you think you got to the computer core?
REED: We were within 20 metres when we tripped the sensors.
ARCHER: Think you could find a way to get past them?
Reed: I believe so.
T'Pol: Our repairs will be complete in nineteen minutes. The station's expecting us to depart.
Archer: Bridge to Engineering.
