    (Jon crosses to Trip's side. Trip's breathing is labored, and slowing. Jon puts his hand over Trip's heart, feeling his heartbeat. Trip takes one final breath, exhales. Jon feels the heart stop. Looks up to the monitor, the indicators all fall to zero. Trip is gone.

    Jon's grief washes over him. But he barely has time to process the loss of his best friend, because--

    Trip speaks!
    TRIP: I have such respect for you, Captain Archer.

    [Such a shocking, gripping moment! I was holding my breath!
    And @sekundant: yes, a lot of missing scenes in this episode.]

    ARCHER: Dead? I understand why you won't get involved with a species' natural development. I've faced that decision myself. It isn't an easy one to make.
