2152: Molto più in là di dove qualsiasi nave terrestre si è avventurata prima d'ora, l'equipaggio dell'Enterprise scopre con grande sorpresa una piccola navetta alla deriva che contiene apparentemente dei resti umani. Tucker e Reed scoprono che la navetta nasconde alcuni strani segreti e il mistero si infittisce quando i Sulibani si presentano rivendicando il diritto di proprietà della navetta. Come se non bastasse, Archer deve avere a che fare con i Tholiani che tentano di impadronirsi della navetta con la forza.
Archer: I wonder... if this could be Zefram Cochrane. They say he was piloting a one-man vessel when he disappeared.
T'Pol: How could he have traveled this far?
Archer: There were a lot of rumors after he was lost. One of them said he was testing some kind of experimental warp ship.
Travis: We're more than thirty light-years from the nearest trade route. I don't see how could he made it out this far.
Reed: Maybe he got a ride from someone.
Tucker: That's gotta be a world record for hitch-hiking! [T:05.35]
Reed: Registers as some kind of... biomatter.
Tucker: Organic circuitry?!
Reed: Maybe you should get Phlox to come down and take a look.
Tucker: Eh, not a bad idea.
Reed: I see it!
Tucker: Good. Means I'm not hallucinating. How can a ship be bigger on the inside than the outside?
Reed: This gives 'space exploration' a... a whole new meaning!
Tucker: I've read a few papers on spatial geometry... I never heard a theory that would explain this.
Tucker: The Cap'n will never believe us. He's gonna have to see this for himself.
Archer: You might wanna contact your superiors. Ask for a man named Silik. He'll tell you I don't respond well to threats.
T'Pol: A Vulcan cruiser. I don't recognize the configuration.
Archer: That's because it hasn't been built, yet.
T'Pol: Few Vulcans have ever chosen to mate with another species.
Archer: Worried about contaminating your genome with a little Human DNA?
T'Pol: There are significant biological differences between the species. It's unlikely we could reproduce.
Archer: If a Human and a Vulcan did have a child, I wonder if he do have pointed ears. [T:17.14]
Archer: What did he say?
Sato: I don't know. But I don't think he was paying you a compliment.
Phlox: Ah! The Vulcan Science Directorate. Hm, hm. Eh, they've always been rather... reluctant to embrace unorthodox ideas.
T'Pol: Are you saying you believe the time travel is possible?
Phlox: Surprises, Subcommander. I believe in embracing surprises.
T'Pol: I prefer to embrace logic. [T:22.36]
Tucker: All right, let's start re-initializing the power grid.
Reed: Assuming that is the power grid.
Trip: Some things are better left to mystery.
Reed: And you call yourself an explorer!
Trip: Where's the fun in exploring if you know how it all turns out? [T:23.46]
Tucker: Looks like they sent the whole kit and caboodle back to the thirty-first century!
T'Pol: There's no evidence to support that.
Tucker: ... Well, there's no evidence to contradict it, either.
Archer: You're forgetting that time is irrelevant to these people.
T'Pol: The High Command has asked me to prepare a report on this incident. With your permission.
Archer: By all means. I wonder if they'll believe that Humans and Vulcans will be swapping chromosomes one day.
T'Pol: They're more likely to believe in time travel. [T:41.23]
