Khannabenigma says the decryption is going to take him much longer than he thought. Sounds like Dain'ta didn't hold him back far enough. You know, aside from the ass-kickings and the phaser-proof skin, we have yet to see exactly how these Khannabees are superior. They really seem to have more brawn than brains. Mullet hands over an e-pad that proves that Dr. Lucas lied about his access to the embryos. Apparently, he has it. Dain'ta growls, "Get him in here."
Trip makes arrangements to mask an Away Team's beam-over as something technobabblicious. Quantum confirms to Khannabee Student that he wants him on the mission. What's up with Khannabee Student wearing that same grey jumpsuit Mozzarella Trip wore? And if there's such a plethora of those, why isn't T'Pol wearing one? Oh, right, The Furlong Clause. Maybe if I repeat that enough I'll believe it.
Mullet smacks Dr. Lucas around for information. Just force him to masturbate while you take a crap on him and you've got the Geneva Accords: The U.S. Edition. Oh, did I just get all political there? Look how not sorry I am. It must be because I have no morals and don't go to church enough. Dain'ta gets Mullet to back off and demands the access information from Dr. Lucas. Dr. Lucas holds his ground. Mullet takes Dain'ta aside and suggests they torture one of Dr. Lucas' colleagues to get Dr. Lucas to talk. Mullet wants to put the chosen one in one of the plastic tubes and release deadly poxes all over his houses. Dain'ta looks upset and horrified and disgusted, but still manages to get talked into it.
The Away Team fires at a Khannabee, and it takes them like fifty phaser hits to take the fugmaster down. You'd think they would have had the sense to modify their weapons after they saw how ineffective they were on the Khannabees last week. Idiots. "And that's what it takes to stun them -- what do you gotta do to kill them?" Reed wonders. I don't know, Mr. Tactical Officer, maybe GET BETTER WEAPONS?
Mullet forces Sanjay Gupta into the plastic tube while Dain'ta tells Dr. Lucas that they are going to submit the doctor to "Symbalene blood burn," which will boil away Dr. Gupta's vascular lining. After which he will strut around in a codpiece and banish his daughter for wanting to marry her stepbrother. "You sunuvabitch!" Dr. Lucas bleeds. "Actually, Mother was a chemist," Dain'ta corrects him in a line that fails to crack me up since they played it over and over and OVER all. Week. Long. Dain'ta expresses his discontent with the current situation and reminds Dr. Lucas that he could stop all this. Dr. Lucas locks his lips and throws away the key on the code. Dain'ta announces, "This is on your conscience then, not mine!" Dawsonella looks slightly disgusted as Mullet pants to release the pathogen. Dr. Gupta starts to cough.
