Check this out, when Cask 23 came over tonight, she brought us two cases of Buffalo Bill Pumpkin Ale. Dude. I'm in beer heaven. Or would that be, Gutkalifornienoktoberbierparadeishausen? I like it when things end in "hausen."
Brig. Quantum orders Silik to get him inside the time machine factory so he can get Trip back. Silik wants to know if Quantum plans to destroy the time machine. Quantum does. "I don't care about your crewman, Captain [uh, then why did you save his life last episode? Will they ever explain that? Should I stop asking questions that are never in a thousand years going to be answered?], but I don't want Camel Taupe to succeed any more than you do -- I'll help you," Silik announces. Silik adds that Quantum's lack of genetically being a Sim will hamper them. "We'll work around it," Quantum snorts. By the way, we all know Silik can morph, but to completely imitate another human? I guess Shower Guy gave him a genetic upgrade. Probably for "services rendered." And "tendered." Ew.
T'Pol gives Quantum instructions on how to disable the time machine factory's shields. Silik walks behind them in...street clothes? Oh, this looks so odd! It would appear that Silik is wearing jeans, a striped t-shirt, and a dark brown suede jacket. Furthermore, he's walking like he's on a catwalk, he's got a wedgie, and the jeans are three sizes too tight. However, I have to say, John Fleck does an excellent job of acting like an alien. In fact, he does such a good job that it's weird to see him as a normal person as we do in a few scenes. Quantum gives final instructions before T'Pol beams them down and wishes them luck.
Nonrad Veidt demands his special weapons from Camel Taupe, who tells him he'll have them in six hours. Nonrad Veidt is none too pleased with this six-hours crap and storms out. Camel Taupe tells his underling that they are leaving tonight and orders him to pack everything. The underling bitches about the instability of the time machine. "Human leaders often speak of destiny." Camel Taupe stands up to be impressive. "The conduit will hold." Therefore we know it won't.
