    SHRAN [on viewscreen]: Captain Archer. Look at the trouble you've gotten your pink skin into this time.

    ^SHRAN: You're braver than I imagined. I wouldn't try to traverse an anomaly field in a ship this fragile.

    ARCHER: You don't seem to be having any trouble.

    SHRAN: We have a record of your warp signature from our last encounter. Our ships are considerably faster than Enterprise. It wasn't difficult to catch up with you.

    Archer: That explains how you got here. It doesn't explain why.

    SHRAN: Your world was brutally attacked. The Imperial Guard thought you'd be grateful to have an ally, considering no one else came rushing to your aid.

    SHRAN: Seven million killed? Not exactly a state secret.

    T'POL: Especially if you're monitoring communications between Starfleet and the Vulcan High Command.

    SHRAN: What happened to your uniform, Sub-Commander? Not that I don't find your new look becoming, but it's not exactly regulation, is it?

    SHRAN: Your world is in jeopardy, and where are your friends, the Vulcans? Where is their mighty fleet? They couldn't even spare one officer. She was forced to abandon her career to remain on your ship.

    (he gives T'Pol a look that sort of tries to be respect, but doesn't quite make it)
    SHRAN: A remarkably selfless act...for a Vulcan.
    [one of my favorite Shran lines :guffaw:]

    (Shran turns back to Archer)
    But we've come to your aid. We've come into the Expanse when they refused. We're here to help you. If you don't want our assistance, we'll leave you to deal with the Xindi on your own. Just like the Vulcans have done.

    Reed: Targeting sensors are down, hull plating. We're damn lucky the torpedoes were all in safe mode. If one of them had detonated.
