A security team runs down to one of the airlocks and points their weapons at the door. A laser begins cutting around the handle. Ah, the renowned Tholian punctuality! I wonder if the Tholians need weapons to do that, or if they can just cut through metal with their Lee Press-Ons.
Bridge. Hoshi reports what the Tholians are up to, so T'Pol dashes to her con. To do what, exactly, is not really that clear.
Launch Bay. "Control Room!" Quantum tells Malcolm Powder as he removes a glowing red striated rod from the warhead and puts it inside the MMP. Again. Malcolm runs up to the Control Room and starts pushing buttons. Quantum slides the MMP's door shut. Shouldn't the Tholians have broken down the airlock door by now?
Engineering. Trip activates the MMP's emergency beacon and sits back.
Launch Bay. Quantum joins Malcolm in the Control Room and orders him to open the Launch Bay doors. From the exterior of the ship, we see the Launch Bay doors open and the MMP drop out. A Tholian ship tractor-beams the MMP. Quantum tells Malcolm Powder to detonate the MMP. "I'd recommend putting more distance between us and that ship," Malcolm suggests. "NOW!" Quantum shouts. Malcolm pushes something, but nothing happens. T'Pol reports that the Tholians have neutralized the warhead. Quantum and Malcolm run up to the Bridge. Okay, the Tholians should be through the airlock by now!
Engineering. All the devices belonging to the MMP phase out. Trip is confused.
Sick Bay. Corpus Chris T phases out. Phlox is confused.
Outer space. The MMP in the Tholian tractor beam phases out. The whole crew is confused. T'Pol clarifies, "It dematerialized and it's not aboard the Tholian ships." The Tholians take off. They must be less confused than our intrepid crew, because otherwise they would have stuck around for the Q&A hour in order to find out where the MMP got to. "Why didn't they fire on us?" Quantum wonders. T'Pol suggests that they might have only been interested in the vessel. Quantum paces a bit before he remembers to ask after the health of the Vulcans. T'Pol tells him their life support is stable and their warp drive is damaged. "Let's see if we can give them a hand," Quantum says, ordering a sh'pod prepped and Phlox to the Launch Bay.
Quantum logs that a Vulcan transport ship is on its way to tow the Valkyrie and that no Vulcans sustained any injuries. He also notes that the weather reports not a Suliban nor a Tholian in the sky.
