Bridge. The Fleabags message that they want to surrender. Digimon orders to keep blowing them up. The Christalien Scientist reports that the weapons aren't functioning. Quantum comms the Bridge that he's rerouted command functions to Engineering and taken the weapons offline. Digimon hisses, "Find him!" Are you deaf? He said commands were rerouted to Engineering -- where the hell do you think he is? In Engineering, Quantum tells Digimon that they've also neutralized their body bombs. "You're lying!" Digimon comms back. "Go ahead, try to blow yourself up. I'll wait," Quantum says. BAH! Best line of the episode. Possibly the best line of the entire series! On the Bridge, Digimon makes no attempt to blow himself up. Quantum tells him to stand down before anyone else is hurt. "You know I won't do that," Digimon grins fanatically. The Fleabags come about and fire at them. Digimon pleads with Quantum to get the weapons back online and fire back. Quantum won't comply. The Bridge takes several hits.
From outer space, the Fleabags move in for the kill.
On the Bridge, Digimon yells, "Are you willing to sacrifice the lives of your crew?" He gets his answer as Reed and some Uh-Ohs enter firing. People duck, roll, and fire. Doubting Thomas passes T'Pol his weapon. She uses it. Digimon -- prairie-dogging into view -- is hit. On the ground, his head does that lolling thing that always signifies death. YAY! Reed and the Uh-Ohs get up and look around. Reed comms Quantum that he has the Bridge and it would be a lot easier if he had weapons back as well. The Fleabags continue to fire. Quantum tells him to standby. May-Best-Non-Verbal-Action-Of-The-Ep is crouching next to a downed Christalien Scientist. He snatches the weapon away all, "Give me THAT!" which was just excellent. "It was probably ad-libbed as well," Dr. Mathra jokes. Quantum gains the Bridge and looks around. "Hail them!" he raspily orders T'Pol. Quantum comms the Heretics that Digimon is no longer in control of the vessel. The Heretic comes on screen. Quantum tells him he's back in control of his ship. "Why should I believe you?" the Heretic asks. "I'm powering down my weapons," Quantum says with a glance at Reed, who scuttles to comply. The Heretic looks at his screen, smiles slightly, and hangs up. His two remaining Fleabags leave. Quantum furrows and sighs.
