Earth. Quantum logs that the Klingons have decided to call off their attack on Earth, since they are happy with what Enterprise did at the colony. So, Quantum saves Earth. Again. Dain'ta returns to a cell that has been stripped of all his John Gnashings. Dain'ta looks all around his cell and says, "You could have at least let me finish my work before you destroyed it." "We haven't destroyed anything," Quantum says. "It's being stored in a secure location." With Dick Cheney. "Maybe some day we'll figure out how to use it to benefit humanity," Quantum goes on. Without it being finished? Isn't that a bit risky? "I wouldn't count on it," Dain'ta sniffs. The doors close behind Quantum, who presses a button to release the cuffs' magnetic field. "I've been thinking," Dain'ta muses, "perfecting humanity may not be possible. Cybernetics, artificial life forms." Quantum bobs his head in that weird way he's picked up of late: "Goodbye, Doctor." Dain'ta doesn't really respond, and goes on to himself, "I doubt I'll finish the work myself -- might take a generation or two." And right after my head had pieced itself back together, it explodes again. Dain'ta sits down at his desk and starts to write.
Next week: Oh, WHATEVER! So, this whole three-week arc was Wrath of Khan and next week's will be The Search for Spock?! Of course, then they'll turn to The Voyage Home and go back in time to rescue over-fished sea bass or something.
