During a fight between Jonathan Archer and Silik in 2151, where Archer commented on Silik's "genetic tricks", Silik retorted that "what you call tricks we call progress," commenting on how Archer's "genome is almost identical to that of an ape," and that "the Suliban don't share Humanity's patience with natural selection." (ENT: "Broken Bow")
