Sickbay. Phlox reports on the stable yet inferior state of Khannabee Student and confirms that he's not a gold star Khannabee. "He's an anomaly. His DNA is similar to the others but not identical. He doesn't have any of their enhanced abilities." Quantum furrows at Khannabee Student and apologizes for hitting him in the jaw. Khannabee Student gives his real name but says his brothers and sisters call him "Smike." When Quantum furrows at the unusual nickname, Khannabee Student tells him it's from Nicholas Nickleby. "His handicapped friend," Quantum furrows out loud. Wow -- first the Bible and now Dickens? And without any Norton-sized anvils as well. Impressive. Khannabee Student was left behind because being merely Cum Laude would have slowed his siblings down, and he accepts that. He also doesn't want to help Quantum find the other Khannabees. "You'll never stop them, Captain, no one will." Trip comms that the medical equipment taken from the Gymboruglee was a bunch of incubators. Don't worry, I'm sure it's just for a Science Fair project.
Dawsonella and Mullet lie in bed together, all tangled up in fug, while Mullet complains that Dain'ta "is different than [he] remember[s]." "The man who raised us would never risk our lives to protect humans," Mullet bitches. Correct me if I'm wrong, Repulsive, but aren't you human as well? I know you're genetically gifted and crap, but that doesn't change your species. You're an idiot. Also, why does their bed look so comfortable with pillows, soft mattresses, and fuzzy blanket? This is a Klingon ship and Klingons eschew all comforts. Picard and Riker bedded down on metal shelves during their stretches on Klingon ships. What -- these Khannabees thought to tote their down comforters and 1500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets with them when they escaped their playpen? I don't think so. I also don't buy that Klingons of the past are less hardcore about comforts than the Klingons of the future. Dawsonella argues that Dain'ta knows what he's doing and that they shouldn't doubt him. Mullet prefers to doubt him and says that Khannabees should be led by Khannabees. They argue some more, and have a minor struggle in bed that ends in sex. Ugly people sex is really heinous. Mullet has tiny man nipples that, truth be told, really don't measure up to Khan's. In fact, he's quite the nippliarly challenged individual. Maybe Dain'ta should fix that next time around. There's a na-ha-hasty scene here where Mullet pulls Dawsonella's face really close to his and I had disturbing flashbacks from that scene in Aliens 3 when the mama alien shoves her big, dripping maw near Ripley's face. Yes, I think he's that ugly and his grin is really that freakish. By the way, I think it's really stupid that Dawsonella's Tick Underoos have the same fashionable tears in them. If they're so smart, why doesn't one of the Khannabees learn how to darn clothes?
