As far as our new Romulan squatters and our guest here on the Lexington goes, we will deal with them when we have a spare moment." Something tells me we won't have many.
Stafford took the other department heads in with his next order. "Everyone else, assign one person to the away team. There may be damage across the board down there. Flight Control pilots the shuttle, and communications stays here to raise Crobe and research more on him and his lab, respectively."
