Discussion in 'Enterprise' started by LeadHead, Jul 11, 2012.
T'POL: There were fewer warp-capable species.
Archer: This ship just isn't equipped to handle some of the threats we're coming up against. It's time we do something about that.
T'Pol: What are you suggesting, Captain?
ARCHER: Enterprise was fitted with phase cannon ports, but since we left Spacedock a few weeks ahead of schedule the cannons were never installed. (they step into a turbolift) I think it's time they were. We should head back to Earth.
Reed: Just give us two weeks, Captain.
TUCKER: I know we can do it. Most of the stuff we need is already on the ship.
Archer: The armoury team at Jupiter Station is trained for this kind of work. If we're going to do this let's do it right.
TUCKER: My engineers are just as good as they are.
Archer: I know that Tripp. But we have other systems that could use over hauls. Look at the bright side, you'll get a chance to say good bye to Natalie.
REED: Sir, with your permission, we could at least begin the work, get a few things started for Jupiter Station.
Trip: It'll cut down the time we'll have to spend in Spacedock.
Archer: Do what you can. Archer to Mayweather.
TRAVIS [OC]: Go ahead, Captain.
Archer: We're heading home.
REED: This, ladies and gentlemen, is a phase-modulated energy weapon. It's rated for a maximum power output of five hundred gigajoules. Enterprise was designed to carry three of them. We have one, and it's only a prototype.
Trip: Our job is to get it up and running and build two more from scratch. The Captain is taking us back because he thinks this ought to be done by the boys in Spacedock.
REED: Far be it from me to question the Captain's judgment, but Commander Tucker and I believe we can do this ourselves.
TUCKER: That means double shifts. By the time we reach Jupiter Station, I don't want their engineers to have a thing to do but give us a wash and a wax. Any questions?
Crewman: Are we expecting another attack, sir?
Trip: We all signed up for this trip because we wanted to do something nobody had ever done before, not because it was easy or safe. But we're not here to take foolish risks. The Captain and the rest of the crew are depending on us to keep Enterprise ready for anything.
