Fortunate cargo module, a.k.a. Nausicaan holding pen. "He's in there," Ryan growls at the Enterprise crew, gesturing somewhere inside the hold. The Enterprise crew walks through the hold. "Where?" Quantum asks. "He's tied up over there," Ryan says unhelpfully. They meander some more through the barrels. Be vewwy, vewwy quiet. They're hunting Nausicaans. Still no sign of a smelly giant with a horny face. T'Pol scans as if her life depends on it. "I'm reading one bio-sign," she tells Quantum, "but it's not Nausicaan." T'Pol and Quantum spy a Fortunate crewmember with a gun. Ryan grabs his gun from its hiding place in a barrel. "Don't do this," Quantum warns Ryan, ducking behind a barrel. Reed fires a phaser shot at the other crewmember, but misses him. T'Pol and Quantum duck as the crewmember fires back. Reed pulls at Phlox and tells him to "get down." And boogie. "Under the circumstances, I defer to your experience," Phlox says. Quantum calls out that they're making a large-ish mistake. More phaser fire. Quantum points at Reed and hisses, "Go!" Reed goes. Quantum and Reed sneak around the barrels, attempting to get into position. As Ryan and the other crewmember back their way out of the cargo bay, Ryan purposefully fires several shots at the surrounding bulkhead. "Captain, there's a breach," T'Pol announces as stuff starts to hiss from the phaser blast points. Ryan fires a few more shots behind him and closes the cargo bay off. Quantum tries to comm Ryan from the inside, but they don't heed him. There's a rumble. Reed looks around and asks, "What was that?" Pretty soon the walls start closing in, the trash starts compacting, and Luke gets strangled by a water snake. Okay, actually, we see that Fortunate has decided to jettison that particular cargo module.
