In the pod, Trip bounces around with Klaang and gets Cpt. Quantum on his communicator. "Where are you?" he asks. "Still in the central core," Cpt. Quantum tells him. "Get Klaang aboard Enterprise." "What about you, Sir?" Trip asks. "Get him to the ship, you can come back for me," Cpt. Quantum tells him. Trip tells him it's going to be difficult to "isolate [his] bio-signs," and directs him to stay as far away from the Suliban as possible. Trip jets off amidst bouncing pods, which smash into each other and break apart. Aboard the pod, Trip fights a yelling Klaang for the armrest. "Ah don't particularly lak the way you smell either!" Trip shouts back. His Southern accent has been fading in and out at odd times throughout the episode. He mutters to himself that he doesn't understand where Enterprise is.
On Enterprise, Reed reports that the sensor charges are "getting closer again." T'Pol instructs Mayweather to move another five kilometers. "At this rate, the Captain will never find us," Mayweather crabs. Okay, they bitch about it when they don't move because T'Pol says the Captain won't be able to find them, and then they bitch when they do move. Hoshi, listening device pressed into her ear, tells T'Pol she thinks she heard something. "Amplify," T'Pol directs. Static and buzzing fills the bridge, and everyone but Hoshi looks confused. "It's Commander Tucker," Hoshi says. "All I hear is noise," Reed tells her. "It's just a narrow notch in the mid-range," Hoshi of the Supersonic Auditory Canal says. Hoshi reports that Trip is about to ignite his thruster exhaust. T'Pol powers up her Spock Viewer and gives Mayweather some coordinates, then turns to Hoshi and says something in Vulcan. "You're welcome," Hoshi smiles. Mayweather tells them he's located the pod and it's right in front of them, so T'Pol tells him to "initiate docking procedures." Hoshi reports she's only picking up two bio-signs, "one Klingon, one human." T'Pol looks concerned.
Meanwhile, Cpt. Quantum makes the most of his time in the Apple Core Helix and scouts around for Sulibans. Didn't Trip tell him to stay away from them? His tricorder (if they're called that in this series) scanner gives off odd signals when he directs it down a certain corridor so, of course, he goes down that corridor. He finds himself in the Trippy Shower Room with the Motion Light Trails. He notices the trails and waves his pistol back and forth, watching the trails. Bet he doesn't remember dropping acid back on the Enterprise. He tries to fire his pistol, but it makes an odd noise, so he reaches into his pocket and slaps something to the bottom of the pistol. Are these the kinds of weapons they have to reload?
