This episode is SO boring I actually listened to the song. It was the most interesting thing in this entire episode.
It has come to my attention that some people in the forums were vexed by Quantum's log being "supplemental" when it's actually the first log of the episode. I have to say, that didn't bother me -- I just figured he had other entries that day. We don't need to hear all of them. God, we really don't want to hear all of Quantum's "deep" thoughts. And if we did, I might have to drink Softscrub. The crew's preparing for Emery's transporter tests by conserving power all over the ship. "If you really want to conserve power, you should think about turning off that exterior spotlight that illuminates the entire exterior of the ship!" the Evil Dr. Mathra advises.
T'Pol and Trip have a little chat which pretty much amounts to a) how entranced she is by the Kir'Shara, b) that already over her mother's death, and c) that she's already over her mother's death. After a teensy amount of prodding, Trip accepts this and tells her to give him a holler if she ever wants to talk. He leaves. Well, at least he didn't get all offended by her reticence to have a heart-to-heart or genitals-to-genitals. That's something.
