The four crewmembers shoot up in some ultra-quick elevator contraption and find themselves outside on a docking bay. Hoshi shouts, "Where's the pod?" into the wind. T'Pol directs one way and Trip directs the other. Cpt. Quantum decides they should follow T'Pol and tries to get through to Reed and Mayweather on his communicator. The transmissions break up, and neither can hear where the other is. More firing from the Suliban, as T'Pol spies the pod through the driving snow and makes her way over to it. Reed peers out a window and comments that he's never seen lightning during a snowstorm before. Mayweather fiddles with a few laptops and says there's too much interference from the storm for him to "isolate human bio-signs." Reed suggests he scan for Vulcan bio-signs. There's a knocking at the window, and Mayweather cries out, "I found her!" Another ship -- which doesn't seem to belong to anyone, because the Suliban and T'Pol are confused by it -- flies overhead, and its jet-wash knocks T'Pol away from the pod, her phaser gun out of reach. Cpt. Quantum orders Trip to "get Hoshi to the ship!" because she's a woman and can't get herself to the ship, I guess. Trip and Hoshi get to the pod under cover of their Captain's phaser fire. Cpt. Quantum reaches T'Pol, who's coughing in the fake snow. "Go!" he orders, firing with two guns. T'Pol resists, saying, "The Enterprise needs her captain -- give me the weapons!" "I said, go!" Cpt. Quantum shouts, and T'Pol goes. Firing alternately with both guns, Cpt. Quantum runs backwards to the pod and gets shot in the thigh just as he reaches the pod's open hatch-door. Reed and Trip come out firing and drag him inside. Mayweather reports that their thruster on the starboard side is down. "Ignore it," T'Pol orders. "Take us up!" The pod takes off, leaving two Suliban in its wake. They watch it go, disappointed. "We need instructions," one says, sighing. This makes me laugh for some reason.
