Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Some of the crew're wondering if I'm doing the right thing. Can't say I blame 'em. I'm not so sure myself.
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: I have no doubt Captain Archer would pursue the same course of action.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: That's what I keep telling myself.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: No.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Have you any idea what the Admiral will do when he finds out?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I'll save you a seat at my court martial.
Administrator V'Las: They didn't steal the prototype because they were merely curious. I'm certain of one thing. Sooner or later, the Andorians will make use of this technology. Is it logical for us to wait for that day?
- SPOILER: The revelation that the character of Major Talok was actually a Romulan disguised as Vulcan was actually a cost-saving measure. The Romulan that V'Las was to be revealed as conspiring at the end of the episode with was originally a separate character, however budget constraints left no more money to hire another actor for a speaking role. Writer Michael Sussman adjusted the scene, turning Talok into the Romulan spy, as the Major's role had already been budgeted for.
- SPOILER: While it is not explicitly revealed that Talok is a Romulan, it is implied that Romulans and Vulcans share the same lineage when he tells V'Las that "the reunification of our people is only a matter of time."
- This takes place in 2154.
- This is listed as one of the "Ten Essential Episodes" of Star Trek: Enterprise in the 2008 reference book "Star Trek 101" by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann.
