    T'POL: I need to run further tests. Their boarding party disabled our antimatter flow regulators. Warp drive should be repaired in six hours.

    ARCHER: Give our new Chief Engineer a hand. Tell him to dig a little deeper, see if these Klingons damaged any other systems.

    ARCHER: The Rigelian freighter. Did you get anything out of the black box?

    REED: It might've been a safeguard, in case it fell into the wrong hands.

    ARCHER: Work with Hoshi. See if you can reconstruct any data.

    PHLOX: There is something familiar about these base-pair sequences.

    ANTAAK: Familiar?
    (There's a sound by Phlox's feet, and he looks down to see the targ nuzzling at his shoes.)
    ANTAAK: Boshar! Feeding time is over. Go back!

    PHLOX: Do you think it's wise to keep wild animals in here?

    ANTAAK: I could never keep Boshar locked up. He was my first patient. He tore his side open when I was a child. I stitched the wound myself.

    PHLOX: I have seen these sequences before. Six months ago, to be precise. This is Augment DNA. How did modified human genes find their way into this virus?

    K'VAGH: Is that really such a surprise, Doctor? It took only two human Augments to commandeer a Bird of Prey and murder its entire crew. The Empire could not allow an inferior species to gain an advantage on us. Imagine, every Starfleet vessel manned with genetically engineered humans.

    PHLOX: Earth banned genetic engineering decades ago. The Augments who attacked you were relics of another era.

    K'VAGH: The Vulcans told that to the High Council. They weren't very persuasive. We were simply responding to a threat.

    PHLOX: You were trying to create Klingon Augments. But Soong's experiments were all killed. Where did you get the genetic material?

    ANTAAK: Several embryos were found in the wreckage of the Bird of Prey. We used them to re-sequence a number of test subjects. There were some unanticipated side effects.

    PHLOX: Their cranial ridges started to dissolve. Augment DNA was more aggressive than you realized.

    ANTAAK: For a time it appeared we were quite successful. Our Augments might have looked human, but they were Klingon. Stronger, more intelligent. Then, their neural pathways started to degrade. They died in agony. One of the test subjects was suffering from the Levodian flu. The Augment genes modified the virus.
