Enterprise answers an automated distress call of the Vulcan ship Seleya, lost in the Expanse 9 months ago. Captain Archer, T'Pol, Lt. Reed and Cpl. Hawkins dock Shuttlepod One with Seleya, only to be attacked by the survivors. The Vulcan crew have been reduced to zombie-like drones, permanently brain-damaged by a neurotoxin in the Trellium. Meanwhile, Enterprise navigates an unpredictable asteroid field rich in Trellium, an ore that can be refined to make a vital insulation for traveling the expanse with minimal damage from the anomalies. Tucker and Mayweather land Shuttlepod Two on an asteroid to mine the ore.

When in the medical bay the Vulcans have started flooding the room with "hexofluorine gas" the characters continue to speak normally. Hexofluorine compounds are much denser than air and cause sound waves to travel slower, which would make their voices sound much deeper. This would be the opposite effect of inhaling helium and then speaking. See more
You can't allow your concern for a single crewman to affect your mission. This Expanse destroyed everyone aboard the Seleya. Don't let it happen to Enterprise.
