    "Sure, but it'd take too long to modify them to cut through the radiation."

    "Captain, I have this funky chip in my arm that can be modified in forty-seven point two--"

    "No time for that. Beam me over now."


    "Geordi, help me modify this funky chip in my arm. we'll do it while we casually walk to the front of the saucer."
