Aenaritaville. The first Aenar, who is much younger than Leadnar, stands over Shran in the darkened room. Shran announces that he's never been able to sleep with someone watching him. The Aenar apologizes and says she's never met a "blue skin." Shran reminds her that she's blind, and cagily asks how she can tell his skin is blue. "Don't ask me to explain," the Aenar says breathily, "I've never been much good at science." "Neither have I," Shran admits. And now they're in love. They trade jokes and stories about living in above-freezing temperatures. Shran seeks to impress her: "I've been on worlds where the temperature is only slightly below the boiling point of water!" Well, sure, but the boiling point of water isn't fixed even on our world. The Aenar, who I wish they would just give a name already, says she came to apologize for reading his mind earlier without his permission. It wasn't intentional. She sympathizes with his recent loss because her brother is the missing Aenar. So, Geordi La Bleu is Gareb the Gimp? She wonders if her brother's in pain because she has nightmares about him being locked and bound in a strange cage. Oh, don't worry -- it's just Zed's basement. The Aenar says her brother wants her to rescue him.
Romkyo. 2nd Romnana helps The Gimp back into the chair and says, "Forgive me," as he zaps him with a stimulant in the neck.
Enterprise. T'Pol tests out the unit. She gasps and twitches but insists that she's fine. Phlox notes that her synaptic responses are getting more erratic, and Trip tells him to shut it down. T'Pol says she will rest a few moments before she tries again. Do you see what they did? With the parallel scenes? Yeah, I guess I wasn't all that impressed either but I was trying really hard to whip myself up in to a state of impressedness. Is that even a word? I think I'm losing my mind.
Aenaragua. Quantum rails on the Leadnar for being unwilling to help them in their mission. Leadnar says they don't want to be involved in anything violent, no matter how noble the intentions. Quantum and Shran leave in a huff.
