Hoshi grabs the Egg of Erised off the desk and holds it above the stone floor. "You mustn't do that -- that's very fragile," Alien Von Stalker, bart. says. Well, doy! Hoshi says that unless he releases her ship, she's going to make good and certain that he never contacts anyone again with the rotten Egg. Alien Von Stalker, bart. says he won't need to contact anyone again if she's with him. Hoshi points out that she'll only be around for another sixty or seventy years. How old is she? I figured her in her late twenties, and she's figuring herself to live close to ninety. ["Maybe the average human lifespan went up to ninety between then and now ?" -- Sars] "What will you do when I'm grave number five out there? Without this you'll never find another companion. You will be alone for the rest of your life," Hoshi taunts him. Alien Von Stalker, bart. again begs her to think what he's offering her. Nope, the time for thinking is over, and the time for smashing Humpty Dumpty is about to begin. To make this point, Hoshi holds the Egg of Erised in one hand -- which makes it seem like the cheap plastic knock-off it is -- and tells him it's his last chance. "Wait, he's a telepathic alien -- how is he even able to control anything on the ship?" the Evil Dr. Mathra wonders. He's Jake 2.1.8 -- the ultimate alien upgrade.
Enterprise. The power comes back on. Quantum orders a Reed Alert and fields a call from Hoshi. He asks her what the hell is going on, and she tells him it's time to come get her.
