Trip wonders if they can really trust Degra; Quantum thinks they can. More explosions as something Trip fixed proves that he didn't. T'Pol comms that an unidentified vessel is approaching, and it sent out a comm that they need help. They've taken heavy damage. Quantum orders an intercept course. "Maybe we can help each other," he furrows. Do you think, at the end of a really long day of filming, that Bakula needs a brow massage? I want to know.
Bridge. Quantum comms the unidentified ship and tells them they'll try to help.
The ships dock together.
The alien captain walks through a destroyed Enterprise corridor and says they were studying a red giant and weren't prepared for the spatial anomalies. Quantum explains that their own messed-up state has nothing to do with the anomalies, and more to do with a race that wants them dead. Capt. Alien has never heard of Xindi, but he has heard of Trellium-D. Quantum tells him they have sixty kilos of the stuff in their cargo bay and should work out a trade. Capt. Alien says they can spare some plasma injectors or anti-matter. Quantum wants a warp coil. Capt. Alien won't play that. Quantum brings new technology to the table. Capt. Alien isn't interested, since without one of their warp coils, the journey home would take three years and they're not equipped for a voyage of that length. Wah. In weird looping, Quantum rants about the Xindi killing seven million people and how he has to stop them. Capt. Stingy Alien won't jeopardize the lives of his crew. Can't say I blame him, because I don't think Quantum would jeopardize his crew either.
