You know, looking back at what happened last week with SURAK'S FUCKING KATRA getting green and peely with radiation poisoning, I don't think it really seems feasible for a soul to form mortal wounds. Maybe he was just manipulating Quantum with mind games.
Dub'ya explains why they are pretending to amass troops near the planet they gave Andoria in the peace treaty when really they are somewhere else. He explains to the Doubting Vulcan -- who is totally Col'n Pow'll, by the way -- that the reason why he wasn't told of this new plan is because of the paranoid fear that Andorian agents are amongst them. Col'n Pow'll continues to protest this preemptive strike. Dub'ya sneers, "We know they have the Xindi technology -- you've all seen the data." Col'n Pow'll points out that data can be falsified, whereupon Dub'ya shows them a WAV file of the Xindi weapon blowing up a dead planet from "Blue Swayed Crews," and says the file was recorded by the Andorian ship that stole the Xindi prototype. "Our operatives tell us it was taken back to Andoria where it was disassembled," Dub'ya continues. "We have reason to believe the Imperial Guard plans to equip their ships with similar weaponry." Col'n Pow'll wants evidence beyond weapons-of-mass-destruction-related program activities. "They didn't steal the prototype because they were merely curious. I know one thing, sooner or later the Andorians will make use of this technology. Is it logical for us to wait for that day?" Col'n Pow'll looks concerned that he will have to sign his name to a memo that will be a big lie.
I've come a long way for the power of Song, and what do I find? Weakling lyrics, a mawkish tune, and a tambourine!
T'Pol, Quantum, T'Pau, and SURAK'S FUCKING KATRA set off for the Emerald Blood City. T'Pol is against this plan of action; she wants to get back to the ship and tattle to Starfleet. Quantum says they have a more important mission, and he gestures at the Kir'Shara, saying they have to get it to the High Command. T'Pol doesn't catch on, so T'Pau helps out by saying that the Kir'Shara is said to contain all of Surak's true teachings. I guess that puts that little book T'Pol gave Quantum right out of date. T'Pau goes on that the writings would have an enormous impact on the High Command and on all of Vulcan. T'Pol is still a Doubting Thomas about these reputed Dead Surak Scrolls, and sighs heavily. Like a CRACK WHORE.
