Bug-Eyed arrives with a tray of food and asks if she's interrupting anything. "Not at all. Commander Tucker and I were just discussing his previous...repair experience," T'Pol tells her. Bug-Eyed offers T'Pol some sustenance, which T'Pol refuses; she leaves the room to continue with her work. Bug-Eyed timidly walks over to Trip and asks if he's hungry. Trip thanks her, and she sets the food down. It looks like a gourd with the top sliced off. Trip starts eating tentatively. "Mmm, it's delicious, what is it?" he asks. Bug-Eyed tells him it's "lorella," grown in their airponics bay since nothing will grow outside. Trip comments that he's surprised they were able to survive. Bug-Eyed watches him eat until he asks, "Why do I feel like it's feeding time at the zoo?" Bug-Eyed gets even more so and says she didn't mean to be rude. She sits down, and Trip tells her he wished more women paid attention to him that way. Bug-Eyed bugs out some more and asks, "Do you know a lot of women?" Trip says, "Well, nearly a third of the crew is female." Bug-Eyed asks if he knows a lot of women on his home planet. "I've got lady friends back there ['Lady friends'? What is this? Petticoat Junction?], but nobody special, if that's what you mean. Not anymore. What about your world?" Trip asks. Bug-Eyed wants to know what about it. Trip points out that she'll be going home soon to see her friends, and she must be excited at the prospect. Bug-Eyed doesn't say anything. Odo, C.C. Capwell, and another random Onesie interrupt their tête-à-tête. "I hear you've been making progress," C.C. Capwell says. Trip tells them they're "gittin' there." C.C. Capwell tells him there's something else he might be able to help them with.
