"The way I see it is that next week, the Alienazis will take over Enterprise and construct a beacon on the deflector dish to call out to the Alienazis that live in that century, while Quantum destroys a room full of toy ships, OR T'Pol will go to the Alienazi headquarters, where she will seduce and may or may not actually have sex with the commander in order to distract him, while Quantum steals the time machine and affixes it to Enterprise even though it's in violation of treaty, OR Mayweather's head will be left in a cave in order to save the ship but they will find it again when they go back in time and Mayweather will put it back on again," the Evil Dr. Mathra hypothesizes. What can I say? The boy's got the looks of a Hollywood star and the brains of a genius.
Alicia and Quantum step onto the Bridge. Hoshi flings herself at Quantum. Reed welcomes him back. T'Pol just CRACK WHORES her lips AND eyes and doesn't answer him when Quantum asks about their status. Great scene, because, you know, Hoshi and T'Pol are women and must therefore be the most emotional ones in it. I'm not saying they shouldn't feel something for getting their captain back from the grave, again; I'm just wondering why they have to be the only ones. And don't give me some wanked-out bullshit that Reed went back to his quarters and wrote in his diary about how he almost cried that day -- if it's not on screen, it didn't happen.
In the corridors, T'Pol brings Quantum up to speed. Quantum orders her to take apart the Alienazi iPod and figure out how to monitor their transmissions and download a bunch of Sarah MacLachlan from iTunes for free. They reach Sickbay, and Porthos leaps at Quantum. Phlox is quietly pleased to see Quantum. "I hope that's the last time you'll have to look after Porthos," Quantum says. I don't -- it's the only time we've seen Porthos get treated properly. Daniels has to ruin this moment by being almost dead and telling Quantum that the Alienazis are the most dangerous of all the Temporal Cold War factions, and are lead by Vosk, who is very opposed to the Temporal Accords. Is he related to Tosk? Vosk apparently defeated the people of Daniels's time and launched this war that's destroying all of time. Doesn't this mean that the Temporal Cold War has warmed up a bit? I mean, they obviously didn't get past their Cuban Missile Crisis. Daniels sent Quantum to this point because it's here where Vosk can be stopped. I so do not care about this storyline. When I saw the finale, I was visualizing hoards of Alienazis and just imagining how they could explain how the aliens came to exist in that time, but now I see it's just two or three of them and no one else really knows they exist. Such a major letdown and waste of potential. Daniels tells him that if he succeeds, the war will never happen and the timeline will be restored. Wait, how? I mean, fine, destroy Vosk and save Daniels's future if you must, but what about the Nazi occupation of America that never really happened? Destroying Vosk now after the Nazis have set up shop across the Eastern Seaboard doesn't actually change the fact that they have set up shop across the Eastern Seaboard. You'd have to go back in time to fix that, and that's not really what Daniels is saying, is it? Why? WHY do I TRY? Quantum mentions the time machine, and Daniels gasps that the original time machine (I can't believe I'm typing this) was a one-way ticket into the past, so Vosk needed to build the conduit (the Time Machine IIe) to get back. Quantum must destroy the conduit. I must throw up. Daniels dies dramatically. I'm beginning to think that Daniels is the unknown force that drives Quantum to leap around the galaxy, putting right what once was wrong.
