Camel Taupe receives the news that Enterprise has entered the atmosphere. I wonder how hard it is to fly a spaceship in the Earth's gravity -- Crichton didn't seem to have a problem with it, but that's because he was used to practicing in it. I don't think Starfleet would regularly fly this size ship so close to Earth. Camel Taupe orders the plasma weapons deployed, but the underling informs him that they don't have enough power. The next best thing is to order out the squadron. "Nein!" Nonrad Veidt says, goosestepping onto the scene. "Zee sqvadron ees goinge to zee front!" "Execute, my order!" Camel Taupe orders...someone. "I em taking contrul uv zees fa-seeleetee. You are reeleeved," Nonrad smirks. Bad time to smirk, Your Gutturalness, since Camel Taupe and Spike Jones are about to tell you to stick it In Der Führer's face. Camel Taupe whips out a gun and dispatches Nonrad in the stomach. The dumb Nazi guards take time to fiddle with their rifles, so Camel Taupe's underling kills them as well. Major Veidt has been shot! Round up the usual suspects.
Quantum comms Enterprise desperately as he hangs over Silik's fallen form. Silik gasps a reminder that the ionization in the atmosphere won't allow the call to get through. "We'll get you outta here," Quantum furrows as he clasps a hand to the Suliban's shoulder. "I think not," Silik says, and chokes. "You've proven a worthy opponent," Silik goes on, intent on declaring his love before he death rattles, "I would have preferred to die fighting you." Of course he would have. In bed. Silik sighs that he supposes he can just settle for Quantum being at his side as he takes his last look at life. And there's the rattle. Quantum pauses for a moment to drop a tear and then jumps up. To run right into Trip. "Trip!" Quantum says joyfully, clearly ready to move on now that his time of mourning is over. Trip holds him off with a gun. "Trip, it's me!" Quantum pleads. Trip barks, "Shut up!" Yeah! I know he's been waiting a long-ass time to say that! Trip thinks Quantum is Silik in disguise and offers to "blow his ugly head off." "If you do, you'll probably regret it," Quantum says and nods over at Silik's body. It sloooowly dawns on Trip that Quantum is alive and standing before him. He's all, "I can't believe it!" as he grips his captain's shoulders. Quantum: "The building's about to blow up." Trip: "Gotcha!" That was the only "hee" moment in the whole episode, and it was entirely due to Trinneer's delivery.
