    There's an exchange between a captain who (possibly) will not return, and the first officer who is left in command. The captain tells them "They" (meaning the admiralty/starfleet) "will try to take" Enterprise/command/it "away from you. Don't let them." Or something very similar.
    I think it's Star Trek, and Archer and T'Pol, but I'm not sure. Does anyone recognize the exchange?

    On the run.
    Sounds like Kirk to Picard in Star Trek Generations to me.

    I know the scene, but it's not the exchange I'm thinking of. The one I have in mind of a commanding officer telling their executive officer not to let the admiralty take the ship away from them, if the commanding officer doesn't make it back.

    I think Archer says it to T'Pol in 'Observer Effect' when he thinks he's going to die after being exposed to the virus in sickbay.

    From "Observer Effect" script:

    T'POL: T'Pol here, Captain.
    (She has her back to the monitor which we can see Archer on.)
    ARCHER [on monitor]: I take it you've been watching.
    T'POL: I have.
    ARCHER [on monitor]: Then you know you're in command?
    T'POL: Yes, Captain.
    ARCHER [on monitor]: I would like to think you'll stay in command. Don't let Admiral Gardner sneak in someone over your head.
    T'POL: I'll do my best.
    ARCHER [on monitor]: I know you will. I need to look after Trip now.

    Is that what you looking for?

    Me too! It would be a cool game, at that. Feel free to start a thread, somebody. The clues could be dialogue or situation.
