Star Trek: Enterprise: Affliction (1)

Enterprise has returned to Earth for the launch of the Columbia. While Trip prepares for his transfer, Hoshi and Phlox enjoy dinner in San Francisco. Things turn sour, however, when Phlox is kidnapped by mysterious aliens and taken to a Klingon laboratory on the colony world of Qu'Vat. Dr. Antaak and General K'Vagh inform him that a virus is spreading through the Klingon Empire — they need Phlox's help to devise a cure.

Episode Quotes
Antaak: (to Dr. Phlox) It wasn't my idea to abduct you. Nevertheless, you are here. Millions of lives are at risk!

Trip: I don't know who's in charge of your mess hall, but he'd give the chef on Enterprise a run for his money.
Captain Hernandez: I stole him from the Republic. Captain Jennings said I could have anything I wanted when I left, so I took his cook.

T'Pol: This is where I go in my mind.
Trip: Wow! I would've thought you'd pick a more interesting place, like the beach or...one of those fire plains you showed me.

Dr. Phlox: We should contact the IME. They may have seen this mutation before. I'm certain they'll be willing to share their database with us. I know of a few...indirect channels. No one would have to know.
Antaak: There's no need to contact them. We've acquired their entire database!

Dr. Phlox: (to Antaak) Perhaps you should ask your superiors to steal a genome sequencer, hmm? We're not going to be able to map the virus without the proper technology.

Dr. Phlox: When I asked you to bring me a subject for dissection, I assumed he would already be dead.
General K'Vagh: He won't be alive much longer.
Antaak: It is more honourable to give one's life for medical research than to die for no purpose!
Dr. Phlox: That choice is not ours to make!
(General K'Vagh draws his disruptor and shoots the subject, killing him instantly)
General K'Vagh: Proceed.

Malcolm: I'm being compromised, sir, and I don't like it.
Harris: Then I suggest you adjust your comfort level, Lieutenant.

Dr. Phlox: (to Antaak and General K'Vagh) I've seen these sequences before. Six months ago, to be precise. This is Augment DNA!

General K'Vagh: (to Dr. Phlox) If you hope to ever leave this place, I suggest you stop asking questions and resume work.

Hoshi: Is it unusual to have weird dreams after a mind meld?
T'Pol: Subconscious thoughts are often exchanged. They sometimes surface during sleep.
Hoshi: I had a bizarre dream last night. Commander Tucker was in it. We were in a strange place. It was all white. There was almost a, uh...romantic quality to it. I don't ever remember dreaming about Commander Tucker before.
Trip: Most unusual.

Captain Archer: (to Malcolm) Your word isn't worth a lot at the moment.

Dr. Phlox: Perhaps you should've abducted Dr. Soong! He could have mapped this genome more efficiently than I can.
General K'Vagh: We tried. Soong was under heavy guard.

Marab: (to Malcolm) You're fortunate to be alive. A Klingon who betrays his captain would be immediately executed.
