Bridge. Quantum walks on. "I wasn't aware the doctor had discharged you," T'Pol says. "He didn't," Quantum says. Because he's just so hardcore. They're holding position on the Klingon border, and Trip confirms that they will now look like a Klingon battle cruiser to the Khannabee sensors. However, they won't if they get within eighty thousand kilometers. May-Cantaloop takes them in.
Dain'ta's "Lab." Mullet enters and mentions that he's there at Dain'ta's summons. Dain'ta reprimands him for constantly challenging his authority in front of everyone. Before Dain'ta can wallow too much in his abandonment guilt, Mullet quickly changes the subject and asks after the embryos. Dain'ta says they will be ready to incubate in a few hours. "You're modifying its DNA," Mullet notes. Dain'ta says he's removing all aggression and violent behavior. "You're changing its personality," Mullet says. Yes, just like he did to you. Unfortunately, in your case, the microscopic laser-scalpel slipped and he lopped off your pretty genes. Dain'ta and Mullet argue whether Dain'ta has the right to tamper with the genomes. "You don't know if this is a defect -- maybe this is the way our creators wanted us to be!" Mullet mewls. "Father, you're wanted on the Bridge," Dawsonella comms. I think Mullet and Dain'ta are having what is called a khanflict of interest. Buckle up, people, I've got a whole bag of those right next to my case of beer and it's gonna be a long night!
Dain'ta stalks onto the Bridge. Dawsonella thinks a Klingon ship is approaching. "Let's see them," Dain'ta orders. The viewscreen shows us Enterprise. Well, so much for Quantum's plan. It worked for all of the time it took the Khannabees to get a visual on their viewscreen.
Enterprise. Quantum increases speed and tells the Khannabees that he'll destroy them if they don't drop out of warp. "Sounds pretty confident for a dead man," Dain'ta snarks before ordering to fire on the ship. Enterprise fires back. Mullet wants to engage them, but Dain'ta negs that, saying that Enterprise outguns them three to one. Enterprise fires again. "Father!" Mullet bawls, hanging off of Dain'ta's chair like an ugly leech. I've decided that when people use the word "Father" without irony, they're either evil or they're Jesus. Dain'ta orders the Denobulan pilot put in the shuttle and plots a course for a planetary system.
