Main Characters in this Episode
Captain Sopek: How convenient.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I'm telling you, they were kidnapped.
Captain Sopek: How do you know this?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Maybe the ransom demand we just received gave us a clue! They threatened to kill 'em both if we didn't give 'em what they want.
Captain Sopek: It would be irrational to kill the hostages. They would lose their negotiating position.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Maybe we're not dealing with the most rational people down there, did you consider that?
Captain Jonathan Archer: Our protein resequencer can make chicken sandwiches.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Hold on, Malcolm. We don't even know if this is our pod. I don't wanna go down and find it's some... alien tractor.
