Mullet broods on his bed. Dawsonella enters, sighing that she doesn't have much time what with all the extra work she has to do. Mullet announces that he's taking control of the ship. "You can't," Dawsonella protests. Mullet says he's spoken to everyone else and they are all behind him. He just has to know if he has her support. Dawsonella says he can't do this to their father. "He may have raised us but that doesn't make him our father. He'll never be one of us," Mullet argues, and then whines about how Dain'ta won't listen to him and his plans. He tells Dawsonella that Dain'ta is futzing with the genomes to make the Khannabees 2.0 docile and weak. Dawsonella doesn't believe him but Mullet invites her to ask Dain'ta herself. She's just so squinty and pasty and sweaty, and the eyebrows? Are, like, brushed on with eyeshadow. And what's that in her hair? Is it a ribbon? No, it's a piece of leather. Yeah, well, nice try, maybe Xenot. Clearly they don't have superior hairstylists aboard. Demian told me he thought the Khannabees got uglier with each passing week, and he's so right. Mullet takes Dawsonella's sweaty, ugly hands and gazes into her sweaty, ugly face: "I know how much he means to you -- I have feelings for him too." Yeah, murderous feelings. Mullet promises that Dain'ta will be treated with respect: "Are you with me?" Dawsonella just stares at him.
A bunch of Khannabees invade Dain'ta's lab to incarcerate him. "Dawsonella?" Dain'ta says in disbelief. Dawsonella looks down at the tops of her shoes. Dain'ta can't believe it's going to take four of them to subdue him. Mullet blusters that the crew is united behind him. If they're all so smart, why are they falling into a mob mentality? Dawsonella and Mullet tell him that there's no other way. Dain'ta and Dawsonella exchange a look. Mullet looks from one to the other and orders Dain'ta locked in his quarters. Dain'ta fixes Dawsonella with a disappointed look as he puts on his jacket. So, if they jail him, who will bring the embryos to term? Because I'm sorry, but I don't know nuthin' about birthin' no babies, Miss Mullet! Plus, they only have nineteen incubators for over eighteen hundred embryos and I think one of the incubators could be considered defective since it produced Khannabee Student.
