The transport ship drops out of warp within sight of two stars, and Quantum asks Frick where his friends are. Frick informs Quantum his friends will be docking with them, and Quantum wonders what will happen to the rest of the prisoners. "Before we leave, you're going to set this ship on a decaying orbit." "It'll be incinerated," Quantum provides for us. "As far as anybody will be able to tell, we crashed trying to land," Frick tells him. Okay, that makes me sick -- they could have moved this ep to a later slot, because it's not even a month later and the parallels are just too glaring to be ignored. And let's face it, just like last week's ep, nothing of consequence even happens in this whole excruciatingly uninteresting hour of lukewarm UPN programming, so they could have just stuffed it in at some other point in the schedule without worrying about continuity. Not like that keeps them up at night, anyway. Quantum doesn't understand why Frick wants to kill all the prisoners, and Frick says, "No one will be looking for us if they think we're dead." Sensing Quantum's squeamishness, Frick invites Quantum to join those who are about to die and says that while he can't fly the ship, he sure can crash it. Quantum furrows out of his travel-size Weight Of The World Window.
