T'POL: Its crystalline structure may act as a natural transmitter.
REED: Sir, I recommend we beam it into space immediately.
ARCHER: No. I need to keep it alive for now, until I can verify what it's told us. Find some way to knock that thing out.
PHLOX: Yes, Captain.
Down in Engineering, Tucker is working on the cloaking device, which is connected via long cables to the Warp Reactor.
Tucker: (to T'Pol) You forget something? Biggs! Get the Commander a radiation meter! You don't want to end up like me, do you? I've absorbed enough delta rays to guarantee my grandchildren glow in the dark.
T'POL: Flux coupler.
Tucker: They say for every year you spend next to one of these things, you lose a decade off your life expectancy. Which means I'll probably be dead by the end of the week.
T'POL: You should speak to Captain Archer about a promotion.
TUCKER: Well, you're his First Officer. You could talk to him for me.
T'Pol: Why would I do that?
Tucker: I did you a favor once.
T'Pol: We agreed never to discuss that.
TUCKER: And I haven't.
T'POL: I'd hardly call it a favor. You enjoyed yourself.
TUCKER: Several times, as I recall. So, how many years is it until your Pon farr comes around again?
(A strange noise starts up.)
Where the hell's that coming from?
(An energy pulse goes along a cable to the cloak.)
Pull the matrix converters!
(It goes bang and throws him to the floor.)
(Later, Phlox is treating Trip's injuries)
Archer: Can you repair the cloak?
TUCKER: It'll take at least a day.
ARCHER: You have six hours.
REED: There are dozens of EPS feeds on this deck, and the only one that overloads is the one connected to the cloaking device.
TUCKER: The power surge disabled other systems. Internal sensors are down, we've lost grav-plating on G deck.
