The Andorian ship looks like a flea under a microscope. In a slightly smoky room, a ROMULAN fiddles with some figure in chair, who has cables attached to his hands and neck and a big, all-concealing helmet over his head. Bring out the gimp! By the by, the headdress makes him look like he's a Romulan Doc Brown in the opening of Back to the Future. Another ROMULAN walks in and demands a report. The first ROMULAN says he can't find the source of the malfunction. The other ROMULAN -- who is that absurdly Cro-Magnon-y actor who played Luke and the Judge on Buffy and a god on Charmed, and talks like he's got a satchel of marbles stuffed in his throat -- tells the first ROMULAN to hurry up because they can't stay long in enemy territory. The Gimp just sits in the chair as his cables light up and make bleepy noises. The ROMULANS see Enterprise approaching and huff from the depths of their horridly checkered coveralls. It's a good thing they aren't checked and quilted -- that would be a fashion don't if I ever saw one. However, we know that they do become quilted at some point, so I wonder how that particular fashion will evolve -- "Oh, would you get a look at that motel room bedspread with purple and beige flowers? You know, refigure it in metallic polyester and that quilting would look fab as a stiff militaristic tunic with shoulder pads!"
