It's misty and mysterious on the fake docks of San Francisco and it all serves to add to the atmosphere of the oh-my-god-who-is-Reed-meeting-ness of the situation. Reed looks furtively around (hoping not to run into anyone he knows in the Biblical sense down on the docks) as a voice comes echoing across the set. "Last time we talked, you told me never to contact you again," the voice intones. WHO could it be, now? Reed reminds the voice that he contacted him and asks about the Staggering Haggard. *GASP* It's Paunchy PVC! I SO didn't see that coming! Paunchy PVC wants Reed back in the spy game, but Reed persists in his questions without answering that particular question. Clever boy. Paunchy PVC explains that Staggering Haggard was a member of an isolationist group called "Terra Prime" who want to keep Earth for Earthlings and don't want any aliens mucking about. Apparently, Staggering Haggard tried to leave this Terryan Nation and was probably killed for her defection. Paunchy PVC thinks Baby Tri'pol was the reason for her change of racist heart. In the end, Reed doesn't get much more information out of Paunchy PVC other than the fact that Terryan Nation is probably planning something and that Baby Tri'pol probably has something to do with it. I think it was really worthwhile for Reed to talk to Paunchy PVC, don't you? I know I come away having learned A LOT!
On a mysterious station that doesn't look at all like it's on Earth, so I TOTALLY wonder where it is, the creepy man (from the opening) questions the doctor (from the opening)'s loyalties. Since Staggering Haggard had deep feelings for Baby Tri'pol, Creepy thinks Doctor might as well. Doctor swears he doesn't care about her in the least. Creepy calls Baby Tri'pol an "abomination" that will be treated as such "when the time comes." Oooh, I can't wait to see if that time DOES come! I'm so worried for the baby -- do you think it will die? It really might! Oh, my goodness -- I JUST learned that Creepy is actually THE Robocop! I've never seen that movie but it must have been a HUGE success for them to get the SAME ACTOR on Enterprise because you know they don't just hire ANY-one and when they do hire someone cool, they totally DON'T promote the hell out of that fact because they are SO SLY! RoboCreep turns back to his window, where we can see Earth in the distance! WOW. They are on, like, a whole 'nother planet! RoboCreep sighs that he's going to miss "this place" because it's simple and he can see Earth. He dismisses Doctor and asks for one of his minions. The minion enters and reports that they are ready to go at a moment's notice. RoboCreep wants to tie up a loose end and asks him to get a team together and meet him at the third junction. Minion agrees and leaves. Given that Doctor was JUST there being closely questioned, I can't imagine what that loose end is! I welcome any and all emails on that matter!
