The door to the shuttle bay slides open. T'Pol plays possum, and Trip hides too as Krispy Krem and Quantum the Lackey walk in. Krispy Krem heads straight for T'Pol and notes aloud that she's different from the other females. He asks what species she is, and Quantum tells him. Krispy Krem kneels before T'Pol and repeats, "Vulcan." "They're really not all that interesting once you get to know them," Quantum says, moving more stolen cargo. Krispy Krem says he'd like to get to know "this one," while Trip watches from his hiding place. "Maybe I won't sell her," Krispy Krem says, stripping off his glove and reaching for her ear, "not right away." Quantum says, "Trust me, she's got no sense of humor. She's always complaining." Krispy Krem's not listening as he moves T'Pol's face -- whose head is in a totally different position from the last scene -- in order to get at her ears. He gurgles with pleasure. "Krem!" Quantum says, bringing the Ferengi out of his trance. He jerks his head at the cargo that needs moving. Quantum and Krispy Krem leave. You know, I'm actually willing to admit that Quantum looks pretty good here. I think it's the black J.Crew shirt. The color makes him look edgier, kind of like Angel. When Angel actually was edgy. Can you imagine him as Captain of the Enterprise? At least we'd have a change from doofish pomposity to doofishness tempered with dark bouts of brooding. T'Pol opens her eyes and makes a disgusted face, while touching her ear gingerly. "You okay?" Trip asks, coming out of hiding. "There are times I wish Vulcans hadn't learned to repress their violent tendencies," T'Pol tells him. Snerk -- I can't believe I really like her in this episode! Trip says, "Come on, we got work to do." T'Pol asks about the others. Trip tells her the hypospray is out of juice -- which explains why Hoshi never came around -- and runs out of the shuttle bay. T'Pol follows.
