Sub-Commander T'Pol: They're disrupting our plasma network. Main power is failing.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: We're losing weapons.
Captain Jonathan Archer: They set us up.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: They're hailing us. Audio only.
Captain Jonathan Archer: This is Captain...
The Borg (voice): You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Captain Jonathan Archer: They told their homeworld how to find Earth.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Did you learn where the message was sent?
Captain Jonathan Archer: Somewhere deep in the Delta Quadrant.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Then I doubt there's any immediate danger. It would take at least 200 years for a subspace message to reach the Delta Quadrant, assuming it's received at all.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Sounds to me like we've only postponed the invasion until what - the 24th century?
Drake: You seem a little jumpy.
Rooney: Cybernetic corpses, digging through frozen remains in the middle of the night, why would I be jumpy?
Drake: I'd be more worried about the polar bears.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: [about one of the cybernetic corpses] Handsome devil.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: What sort of people would replace perfectly good body parts with cybernetic implants?
Dr. Phlox: You of all people should be open-minded about technology.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: I don't have a problem with it... as long as it stays outside of my skin.
[Dr. Moninger has suggested to put the cybernetic corpses in cold storage and examine them under controlled conditions]
Drake: There's no reason to assume they're hostile.
Dr. Moninger: [laughs nervously] They don't exactly look friendly.
Drake: Starfleet has asked us to find out everything we can. Keep them here for now. We'll see what happens.
[after being infected with Borg nanoprobes, Dr. Phlox has come up with a drastic radiation therapy as a treatment]
Dr. Phlox: [hands Archer a hypospray] You, er, may want to keep this, in the event I'm unsuccessful.
Captain Jonathan Archer: What is it?
Dr. Phlox: A cure, of sorts. It contains a neural toxin that will terminate my synaptic functions within a matter of seconds.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Aren't you jumping the gun a little?
Dr. Phlox: I have no intention of turning into one of those... cybernetic creatures.
Captain Jonathan Archer: There was something familiar about all this; but I couldn't put my finger on it until I found this speech Zefram Cochrane made eighty-nine years ago. When I was a kid, I read everything I could about him. It took me a while, but I finally found it in the database. He was giving a commencement address at Princeton, when he started to talk about what really happened during First Contact. He mentioned a group of cybernetic creatures from the future, who tried to stop his first warp flight when he was living in Montana. He said they were defeated by a group of Humans, who were also from the future.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: As I recall, Cochrane was famous for his imaginative stories. He was also known to be frequently intoxicated.
Captain Jonathan Archer: No one took him seriously. And he recanted the whole thing a few years later; but you have to admit, there are similarities.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: [reading from the computer] He said their ultimate goal was "to enslave the Human race."
Captain Jonathan Archer: If he was right... they might be heading back to their homeworld, so they can try again.
Dr. Phlox: Why are you wearing a phase pistol?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Oh, it's... Lieutenant Reed's idea. If you come near me, I'm supposed to shoot you.
Dr. Phlox: I hope you'll use the stun setting.
Captain Jonathan Archer: They say doctors make the worst patients.
Dr. Phlox: The technology could assert itself at any moment. I don't know what will happen if it does. I underestimated these nanoprobes once. I don't intend to make the same mistake twice.
