Enterprise is in a region of space with no inhabited worlds and so there's not much exploring to do. Lieutenant Reed is trying to align the targeting scanners with ensign Mayweather and doctor Phlox is taking care of a slug that Ensign Hoshi took aboard, but isn't faring too well. Then Enterprise stumbles upon a ship adrift in space. T'Pol and captain Archer discuss if the crew should enter the ship to provide assistance if needed, but Archer and mankind's curiosity wins. The captain decides to take Reed and Hoshi with him. Hoshi however is having trouble adjusting to the life on the ship. Earlier she complained about her quarters not being on the port side and this time she tells Archer that she'd rather help from him the bridge because she's claustrophobic. Written by
