  • Trivia

    • Mission Date: May 27, 2154

    • Trivia: Finally conceding that perfecting humanity through genetic engineering is impossible, Soong decides to pursue cybernetics, and says that the work will likely take multiple generations. This is a tie-in to Soong's 24th Century descendant, Dr. Noonien Soong, who eventually created, among others, Data.

    • Trivia: When mentioned by Malik, Soong dismisses the Botany Bay - the ship carrying Khan Noonien Singh and his fellow augments - as a myth. In fact, the ship would later be discovered, and its passengers revived, by the Enterprise (NCC-1701) crew in The Original Series episode "Space Seed".

    • Nitpick: Although it is scientifically plausible for Archer to survive the vacuum of space momentarily, some of his capilaries should have burst.

  • Quotes

    • Soong: (to T'Pol) Sorry about that business with the Orions. Hope you weren't permanently injured.
      Trip: Why don't you stay focused on what you're doing?
      Soong: Someone's a little protective of Commander T'Pol.
      Trip: I just don't like you very much.

    • Soong: The port inducer assembly's been damaged. Go to engineering and repair it.
      Malik: I'm not an engineer.
      Soong: You're a bright boy, Malik. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

    • Trip: (to T'Pol) Come on. It's not like we would have made an ideal couple. A Vulcan and a Human? Romeo and Juliet probably stood a better chance.

    • Soong: How long can we sustain Warp 5?
      Trip: As long as the Captain wants it. Or until we blow up, whichever comes first.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Trip: Romeo and Juliet probably stood a better chance.

      Romeo and Juliet were lovers in the Shakespearean tragedy of the same title. They were forbidden to be together by their feuding families, and eventually both comitted suicide.
