Lt. Kelly: (over the comm) How are the Martian surface conditions?|
Ground Team Leader: Pretty rough. My golf ball just rolled into a hazard.
Kelly: Uh...speaking of hazards, guess what's heading straight for the command module?
Leader: Bad joke, Kelly. Kelly? Hello?
Doors to Chakotay's Quarters: Whissh...whump...whissh...whump...whissh....
Chakotay: I didn't authorize these engineering changes.
Kim: Look -- a graviton ellipse!
Tuvok: There are compounds unknown to our science inside the anomaly.
Paris: Let me take the Flyer to look for the command module.
Seven: This archaeological mission is risky, pointless and stupid.
Chakotay: I really admire those early spaceflight pioneers.
Doctor: What I wouldn't give to be in your shoes right now!
Paris: Wow, look at all the weird stuff in here!
Torres: There's a dark-matter asteroid approaching.
Seven: We must get out before the asteroid hits the ellipse!
Seven: Your irresponsible, obsessive actions have sentenced us to death!
Paris: Could we use a three-hundred-year-old part from the Ares IV to fix the Flyer's ultramodern engines?
Seven: I've arrived inside the command module.
Seven: I've found the engine part we need.
Janeway: May the brave Lt. Kelly rest in eternal peace.
