Enterprise: Broken Bow


Keep trying. You've almost got it.
I'll be right back.

There's two more weeks before exams.
It's impossible for me to leave now.

You've got to have someone who can cover for you.
If there was anyone else
who could do what I do,
you wouldn't be so eager

- Hoshi...
- I'm sorry, Captain. I owe it to these kids.

I could order you.
I'm on leave from Starfleet, remember?
You'd have to forcibly recall me,

which would require a reprimand which would
disqualify me from serving on an active vessel.

- I need someone with your ear.
- And you'll have her... in 3 weeks.

What's that?
Ambassador Soval gave us a sampling of
their linguistic database.

I thought you said the Vulcans
were opposed to this.

They are. But we agreed to make
a few... compromises.

What do you know about these... Klingons?
Not much. An empire of warriors...
with 80 poly-guttural dialects
constructed on an adaptive syntax.

Turn it up.
Think about it. You'd be the first
human to talk to these people.

Do you really want someone else
to do it?
