Trip helps Emery with more tests. Trip offers to treat Emery to lunch. Emery refuses. "He doesn't need to eat, he's a cyborg," Dr. Mathra suggests. Emery refuses all food because wants to monitor all the data coming back from their tests. Trip offers to be a second pair of eyes. "He already has a second pair of eyes. They're in his spine," Dr. Mathra explains. Emery again rebuffs him. Trip finally takes the hint that he's not needed or wanted, and leaves. I wish this show would take that hint.
Trip tattles to Quantum that he thinks Emery is doing weird stuff and is lying about his tests. Quantum admits to having his reservations as well. Especially since he dug up some info that says the thing that melted the Rent-a-Red-Stripe's face happened during another one of Emery's tests a few years ago. In case we need reminding because we were bored insensible for the last half hour, Emery denied all knowledge of such an event occurring. I find it really annoying that Emery spells his name with an "e" rather than an "o." T'Pol comms to say they are picking up another Face-Melting Anomaly elsewhere on the ship.
Quantum and a team hunt for the Face-Melting Anomaly That Is Quinn. The Face-Melting Anomaly That Is Quinn, which sort of looks like the water graphics from the "Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls" video, appears in front of Quantum and T'Pol and attacks T'Pol. She screams and wails and pants.
I'm so anesthetized by this episode that I don't even have the heart to be angry at it. I just don't care. It's there. It's bland. It's Enterprise. Oh, and the Icarus Factor in this pathetic excuse for entertainment? Not even going to dignify that tired stupid-son-flew-too-close-to-the-sun-so-humpybacked-father-blames-himself with analysis. It's obvious. We can all see it. I don't care. I always thought Daedalus was better off without a brain-dead son like Icarus anyway.
