Dear Keckler, Of course he's acting out -- have you seen this show?! Yrs., Dr. Katz, DMV
T'Pol stares down at the fallen Vulcan and leans heavily against a bulkhead. Quantum asks if she's okay, and when she doesn't respond, he says, "T'Pol?" with a little catch in his voice. Interesting. I wonder if that was intentional, or just that thing that happens when you don't clear your throat properly before speaking. T'Pol shudders that she's fine, and scans the Vulcan. "His synaptic pathways have been severely damaged," she notes. Quantum orders him to the pod, but as they start to gather him up, two more Vulcans stagger down the hall towards them. T'Pol and Quantum fire, once, twice, before the Vulcans fall three times the ladies. Stepping over the Vulcan debris, Quantum comms Reed to be wary of Vulcans bearing resemblance to brain-eating zombies. I think Reed's brain is safe, actually. Soon after the warning, Reed and the Uh-Oh are set upon by a troupe of Thriller extras. The make-up similarities? Uncanny. The Uh-Oh gets slashed in the arm and goes down with a whimper. Reed's getting choked by a Vulcombie when Quantum appears of out the darkness and fires expertly at Reed's attacker. Reed asks what happened to the Vulcans, but instead of answering, T'Pol warns that seven more Vulcombies are on their way. The team is further hastened by the other Vulcombies staggering back to consciousness. I think they made them all hold those extra large wrenches and screwdrivers so they'd have something to do with their arms other than hold them out in front of them.
The Away Team scoots down the corridor. The Uh-Oh snicks a button on his weapon, and we hear a high-pitched ping. "What are you doing?" T'Pol demands. "'Stun' isn't working, we should set our weapons to 'kill,'" the Uh-Oh explains. T'Pol has a big problem with that and tells him they're on a rescue mission. "With respect, ma'am, they don't seem to want our help," the Uh-Oh says. T'Pol yanks the Uh-Oh around to face her and says, "You heard me!" The Uh-Oh looks to Quantum, who reiterates T'Pol's order.
Two Vulcombies walk stiff-leggedly around, and the Uh-Oh calls Quantum over. "What are they doing?" Reed asks. We see the Vulcombies standing over the manhole opening to the sh'pod. If they heard a doorbell, do you think the Vulcombies would belch, "You raaaang?" Instead of taking their shots and stunning the Bridgekeepers out of the way so they can escape, Capt. Moron wastes time trying to explain themselves. Unfortunately, it's long been established that you can't reason with creatures with warty faces and hollowed-out eyes, so the Vulcombies flip a switch and raise the drawbridge on the Away Team, completely blocking them from any access to their ship. T'Pol tells them that there isn't another way to the airlock, just as more Vulcombies burst through other doors. "Doesn't anyone have a stake on them?" the Evil Dr. Mathra demands.
