This scene takes place in ''Enterprise'''s [[situation room]] and shows Trip (who is not feeling very well), T'Pol and Reed discussing whether or not they are actually tracking the stealth alien vessel. Trip attempts to dismiss himself, only for T'Pol to recommend a meal, revealing she has been told that [[Rigelian]] sausage, which has recently been prepared by the ship's [[chef]], is notably 'succulent'. Trip replies that he plans to lie down for a while but, as he waits for the [[turbolift]] door to open, Reed comes up with a faster way to detect the alien ship's [[plasma]] trail - by modifying ''Enterprise''s [[UV sensor]]s. He asks for the engineer's help to do so, but Trip, about to vomit, rushes to a door in the situation room, opens it and exits.

When Trip assists an alien vessel with repairs, a "friendly" encounter with one of the crew leads to rather unexpected consequences.

Summary

Various systems throughout the Enterprise are malfunctioning. It is soon discovered that this is caused by a cloaked alien ship which is using Enterprise's plasma exhaust to replenish its teraphasic coils because its own engine's are malfunctioning. The alien's deeply regret the incidence and Captain Archer graciously offers to help them. Commander Tucker is sent to the alien vessel to assist them with the repairs.


At first, Trip has an unpleasant experience as he adjusts to the ship's environment: refusing to rest after going through a three-hour decompression makes him feel nauseous and feverish. However, he finally accepts the suggestion to rest a little and begins to feel better soon afterwards. The female Xyrillian engineer onboard the ship helps Trip recuperate. Between repairs she also shows him around the ship and introduces him to some interesting features of their technology: notably a kind of holodeck where various environments are simulated. She also plays some sort of a "game" with him whereby both reach into a pool of pebbles that enables them to read each other's minds. It is an interesting and enjoyable experience for Trip. When the coils come back online and thus the repairs are concluded, Trip finally returns back to the Enterprise, having thoroughly enjoyed his three-day trip.

After the Xyrillian starship leaves, Trip discovers a strange growth on his lower arm. He thinks it is an allergic reaction but after being examined by Dr. Phlox, he learns that it is actually a nipple and that he is pregnant. After being asked some rather uncomfortable questions by Archer and T'Pol about his stay onboard the alien vessel, he states that the only thing that could come close to having had physical contact would have to be the pebble "game" he played with the female engineer. The doctor tells him that apparently the 'game' served to transfer genetic information to him. Trip is not biologically related to the embryo but is merely being used as a host to grow the embryo, as it is typically done by the Xyrillians. However, not knowing enough about the proces,s they cannot do anything about it. They realize that they have to find the Xyrillians to find information about the gestation process. While searching for the Xyrillian ship, a hormonal Trip finds himself irritated frequently. He grows another nipple, eats a lot and is sure that T’Pol told everyone about his pregnancy. Finally, they discover the Xyrillians hitchhiking on a Klingon battle cruiser as they did with the Enterprise.


After a difficult explanation of the situation to the Klingons who find all this very amusing, the Klingons decide not to destroy the Xyrillian ship if the Xyrillians promise to share some of their technology, in particular the hologram program, with them. Trip can then go back on to the ship to get some answers. When he explains his situation, Ah'Len apologizes, saying she didn't know that was possible. After examination, she finally concludes that the embryo could safely be transferred to another host – it is also revealed that the embryo is a girl.


As they depart, T'Pol informs Trip that he may be pleased to know that after some research she found that this is the first recorded incident of a human male becoming pregnant; "just how I always wanted to get in the history books, Trip responds...

Unexpected Deleted Scene 44

This scene takes place in Enterprise's situation room and shows Trip (who is not feeling very well), T'Pol and Reed discussing whether or not they are actually tracking the stealth alien vessel. Trip attempts to dismiss himself, only for T'Pol to recommend a meal, revealing she has been told that Rigelian sausage, which has recently been prepared by the ship's chef, is notably 'succulent'. Trip replies that he plans to lie down for a while but, as he waits for the turbolift door to open, Reed comes up with a faster way to detect the alien ship's plasma trail - by modifying Enterprises UV sensors. He asks for the engineer's help to do so, but Trip, about to vomit, rushes to a door in the situation room, opens it and exits.
