BURNHAM: Good. Mission time?
Computer: 12 minutes, 58 seconds.
BURNHAM: Plenty of time to take a peek. Even from this distance, it's clearly not debris.
[Meanwhile on the Bridge of the Shenzhou]
Connor: 12 minutes and 48 seconds until maximum radiation exposure.
Detmer: The commander is less than ten meters from the outermost edge of the scattering field.
BURNHAM: I can't remember who said sculptures are crystallized spirituality. Headlamp. But I see what they meant. This is Burnham in the blind. I'm above the object, which is old. Centuries old. It's difficult to tell if it was constructed or carved. The only word to effectively describe it is wow. But I'll try to be more precise. Its surface has the appearance of stone with an exoskeleton of metal alloy. Oh, incredibly intricate. The construction and design are nothing short of astounding. I wish you could see what I'm seeing. It is sublime. It's impossible to discern a practical purpose. I'm going to land on it, get a closer look. Nice and easy. Hold on. My presence has triggered some sort of motion response.
Computer: Mission countdown, ten minutes, 15 seconds. Warning. Proximity alert. (An armed and armored figure is facing her.) Scanning for database recognition. Iconography confirmed. Klingon.
BURNHAM: I'm Commander Burnham of the United Federation of Planets.
Detmer: Still no sign of Commander Burnham. Mission clock runs out in 15 seconds.
Januzzi: There's still too much interference. I have Number 1. Telemetry only. Blood pressure is 70 and falling. She won't make it unless we get her back now.
Georgiou: Transporter Control. Do we have her, Mister Weeton?
WEETON: Pattern integrity's too weak, Captain.
Georgiou: Saru, get a lock on her. Boost her signal.
SARU: Captain, there is no signal.
Georgiou: You better get me a signal. Remotely fire her jetpack.
NARWANI: She's offline.
Connor: She's floating free.
GEORGIOU: Engineering. Tractor beam?
Weeton: Can't get a lock. We're running manual calculations.
SARU: The scattering field is still a problem, Captain. We can't transport her until she clears it.
