Trip and Quantum speculate around the ship. "What do you think that trader really saw down here, sir?" Mayweather asks. "I dunno. Maybe someone else wanted to salvage this wreck, and they were trying to scare him off," Quantum suggests. "That makes sense," Mayweather starts to say, then changes tacks: "Except scavengers would have stripped this ship to the keel." Except that keels only exist on water-faring vessels. Their reason for being is to provide sufficient weight so that a ship has a hard time tipping over. Last time I checked, spaceships weren't really concerned with tipping over. Of course, it could just be a turn of phrase, but I still don't understand why it would be in his lexicon if Mayweather was reared in space. "This isn't turning into one of your famous ghost stories, is it?" Quantum asks. Silly captain -- nothing about Mayweather is famous. Mayweather comments that it would make a good ghost story. The two chuckleheads go to investigate a piece of technobabble, and the captain's chauffeur confirms that it's a computer terminal with no power. "But the data modules look intact," Mayweather says, scanning. Quantum says they should take it back to the ship so they can attempt to figure out what happened to the ship.
Team Tri'Pol scans something else. Trip confirms it's dilithium and then says, "Huh." T'Pol asks if there's something wrong. "No," Trip says, "the crystals are in perfect shape. It wouldn't be that hard to get this ship flyin' agin." While Trip fiddles, T'Pol catches sight of an alien face reflected in the glass of the power module. She spins around and shines her flashlight behind her. "There's someone here," she tells Trip. "You said there weren't any biosigns," Trip reminds her. "There aren't," T'Pol tells him, walking toward a corner. "If yer tryin' to skeer me, I appreciate the effort, but --" Trip breaks off as a shadow flits by. Trip comms Quantum and tells him, "We're not alone down here." Quantum says they're on their way, right after they stop in front of a mirror and say "Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary" ten times. Trip and T'Pol continue to investigate, and continue to find nothing. They get to the end of the corridor and T'Pol says, "There's a space behind this bulkhead." Trip uses his phaser to cut through a section of the bulkhead, which they remove and step through to another area. T'Pol presses a panel, and a door slides open to reveal an overgrown greenhouse. It's not scary anymore. Eighteen minutes into the episode, and it's not scary anymore! As they skulk around the forest of Arden, Trip wonders why it didn't show up on their sensors. Scanning, T'Pol reports a dampening field in the area generated by an unknown power source. They keep tiptoeing through the tulips. Trip rounds some fronds and sees a bug-eyed humanoid chick. "Hi," he says cautiously. She goggles at his weapon; he lowers it quickly and assures her he's not going to hurt her, but she dashes off anyway. T'Pol and Trip run after her, right into a room full of other humanoids in onesies. Humanoids in onesies with weapons pointed directly at them. T'Pol and Trip sheathe their phasers, and the camera cuts to a shot of Odo in the background.
