In a galaxy far, far away, a topiary-like construction made up of many tiny orb-cubes floats in a greenish atmosphere. Inside this topiary thing, there's a chamber with a cylindrical source of light beaming down into the center (oddly capturing what I always imagined sonic showers looked like). Within the light source stands a shadowed figure, as one of those mottled bald, green, aliens that blew up in the Oklahoma silo walks into the room. Now, here's where it gets trippy. As the mottled green alien walks up the steps to the shadow in the shower, a slo-mo light trail is left behind with every movement the alien makes. Sometimes it would seem that the slo-mo light trail actually anticipated the alien's movements and starts in that direction before the more solid, corporal form of the alien does; then again, it could have been the drugs I was taking. The shadow in the shower asks in echoing tones, "Where's Klaang?" -- in this chamber, sound seems to do what light and motion do. Leave a trail. "The humans have him," the mottled alien answers. "Did you lose anyone else?" Shower Shadow asks. "Two of my soldiers were killed. One of them was my friend -- can you prevent it?" Mottled Alien asks. "Our agreement doesn't provide for correcting mistakes. Recover the evidence," Shower Shadow says. If you look really hard through the rain of light, the Shower Shadow looks to have a humanoid neck. I'm betting it's a Romulan, just like in TNG when they kept Tasha Yar hidden in the shadows for a few episodes. Plus, who else hates the Klingons that much? We know there's going to be a war between the Romulans and Earth in Cpt. Quantum's time. Mottled Alien says he will be sure to recover the evidence as instructed: "When will we speak again?" "Don't be concerned with 'when'," Shower Shadow says, becoming even more shadow-like as he disappears. Well, if that doesn't have Time Travel written all over it, I don't know what does.
