In the writers' second draft script of ENT: "Breaking the Ice", it was established that, aboard Enterprise NX-01, DoctorPhlox kept antacids, which were described in the stage directions as "pink tablets", in a wall dispenser in sickbay. Despite initially being unsure where they were stored, CaptainArcher retrieved "a couple" of these for himself after hosting a meal with Vulcan Captain Vanik. Although CommanderTrip Tucker asked Archer if the antacids were required because Vanik had annoyed him, Archer replied that he was suffering indigestion from having eaten meatballs and Vulcan food, the latter of which had been specially prepared for Vanik (though he hadn't eaten any of it). Tucker reacted as if he was skeptical of this explanation and told Archer, "I hope the shelf-life on those antacids has expired." An amused Archer then popped his antacids while exiting sickbay.
