    Chakotay: Why would he have broken off transmission?

    TUVOK: Perhaps I can offer an explanation. The comm link signature of his transmission indicates the message originated from a Romulan ship. Further, there are no known shipping lanes in the sector he identified. Given the precise calibration of his signal I would suggest that he is in fact on board a science vessel.

    CHAKOTAY: If he's engaged in some kind of secret research he might want to conceal that fact.

    Tuvok: Precisely. When we claimed to be transmitting from the Delta quadrant, an impossibility so far as he knows, he may have feared we were Federation spies.

    TORRES: Just our luck. We raise one ship from the Alpha quadrant and it has to be Romulan.

    Janeway: That Romulan still has the ability to get a message to Starfleet. Mister Kim, hail the Talvath repeatedly. Call me the minute you re-establish contact. Commander, you have the bridge.

    EMH: Well, that's good. I was right in the middle of preparing a culture to test Lieutenant Hargrove for Arethian flu when Ensign Kyoto deactivated me.

    Janeway: Doctor, you were originally programmed to serve in a limited fashion during an emergency. Now you're being asked to do much more.

    EMH: That's certainly true. I'm providing full time medical service for the entire ship's crew, functioning both as doctor and nurse, and now as an instructor as well.

    Janeway: You don't have the luxury of thinking of yourself as an Emergency Medical Program anymore. You've become a full-fledged member of the crew.
