* RousingSpeech: Malcolm gives one to the [=MACOs=].
--> '''Malcolm:''' I've just come from Sickbay, where the Doctor assures me that Sergeant Kemper and Ensign Sato will make full recoveries. Unfortunately, Major Hayes' injuries were more severe. He didn't survive. I'm sorry. We've got less than ten hours before this weapon reaches Earth. The Captain wants to take a team aboard to destroy it. I don't imagine the Reptilians will make this easy for us, but that's why you're here. That's why Major Hayes picked each one of you for this mission. Because he knew you'd get the job done.

If everything goes as planned, we'll intercept the weapon in less than two hours. ''Enterprise'' may be coming apart at the seams, but I can't say the same for the crew. After nearly eight months in the Expanse they're ready to do what they came to do. No matter what it takes, no matter what the cost.

* JumpedAtTheCall: After reporting the news of Hayes's death to the [=MACOs=], Reed says they're preparing a mission to destroy the Xindi weapon and that he needs three volunteers. Every MACO there steps forward.
