The door rings, and Phlox thinks one of them should get it, as it could be news about the captain. Phlox disengages T'Pol's appendages from his and answers the comm. It's Trip with food. Phlox goes to the antechamber and suggests T'Pol sit this one out. Trip opens a glass communication window and asks how everything's hanging. Phlox doesn't really answer him and opens the drawer with the food, asking if they've found Quantum yet. Trip thinks they have, and hopes it's not another warp goose chase. "Is that food?" T'Pol grunts, coming out of Decon. Trip looks interested as T'Pol grabs her covered plate out of Phlox's hands and starts shoveling the food in her mouth with her hands. It looks like a lentil salad. I wonder if Chef can get his hands on real French green lentils from Auvergne -- they're so hard to find. "Is she all right?" Trip asks as T'Pol stares at him. Phlox puts his hand on her neck and shoves T'Pol back into Decon. T'Pol gives Trip some more big eyes. Phlox tells Trip that T'Pol is just running a fever, and closes the Decon doors. Reed comms Trip that they are approaching the coordinates. Trip leaves with arched eyebrows and tells Phlox to let him know if he needs anything. Like a condom.
Bridge. Reed reports finding more decoy beacons and reports that there's a ship on the surface of the planet, but it's not Tellarite. Trip opens a channel. From his short conversation with Kago, Trip learns that Quantum was abducted because the Klingons put wanted posters up all over space. Trip deduces that they need to find Quantum before the Klingons do. And who thought Trip couldn't make command decisions?
Space Station. Boba Nyet visits his brother for his help and gets into an argument about whether bringing Quantum in is really worth it. When Boba Nyet talks about getting his ship back, his brother tells him that the thing was stripped for parts by the Klingons and really isn't worth having anymore. Boba Nyet is mightily distressed. Quantum supposes that Boba Nyet will still turn him over to the Klingons: "I'll be disemboweled by one of those nasty-looking swords of theirs. And you'll collect those nine thousand darseks but it won't get you the Tezra back." "Ah, The Furrows of Guilt!" Mathra crows. Boba Nyet thinks all this over as Quantum heaps more coals on his head. Boba Nyet doesn't see that he has a choice anymore, since the Klingons will kill him if he doesn't hand Quantum over. "Maybe not -- have you ever been aboard Goroth's ship?" Quantum asks. Boba Nyet says he's been aboard twice, and asks why Quantum's wondering. Quantum just looks at him. "Ah, a plan that is hatched off-screen!" Mathra chortles.
