T'POL: It's too late.
ARCHER: We're going to take the scans you made back to Phlox and figure out what's going on here, but first we have to get to the shuttle. How do you open those bulkheads? The bulkheads.
T'Pol: There's an auxiliary control room on the Engineering deck.
(T'Pol stops for a rest.)
HAWKINS: Are you okay?
ARCHER: T'Pol, we have to keep moving.
(She shrugs off Hawkin's helping hand.)
T'POL: I don't need your help.
(They come out into an area with fallen girders and spluttering cables.)
REED: Two more biosigns fifty meters beyond that hatch. It's the only way to the Engineering deck.
ARCHER: We'll go deal with them. Stay with her, Hawkins.
Hawkins: Aye sir.
^HAWKINS: Water? No offense, but you look like you could use some.
T'POL: Thank you.
Hawkins: I apologise for the way I reacted before. You were right, this is a rescue mission. May I ask you a question? How is it possible that this crew could turn so violent, when Vulcans aren't supposed to have emotions.
T'POL: A common misconception. We have emotions. We simply keep them suppressed, under control. Something has obviously caused them to lose that control.
Hawkins: Why would they want to kill us?
T'POL: There was a time in the past when we were an extremely violent race. We nearly destroyed ourselves. Paranoia and homicidal rage were common.
REED: Five meters.
(They come into another compartment and are attacked by 3 Zombie Vulcans, whom they promptly murder.)
Archer: Any more where they came from?
REED: Not at the moment.
(@Orac... murder? Seemed like self-defense... cuz Vulcan strength + zombification = we're toast)
ARCHER: Archer to Hawkins.
(@HopefulRomantic ...Semantics, after all isn't self-defence just a legal term for 'justified' murder)
HAWKINS: Go ahead, sir.
