There's a boom and lots of yelling from inside the bar as the door flies open to reveal the place in flames. All the aliens come running out, and T'Pol and Quantum run in to find May-blitz standing in front of the conflagration where Menos is sitting. "He kicked over the table!" May-blitz bleats incredulously. Hee. "And you claim you're a peaceful man?" Quantum demands of Menos through the flames. "Ironic, isn't it?" Menos shouts over the roar of the blaze. "Burning to death on a frozen moon? But I'd rather die here than be brought back and punished for crimes I never committed!" Before Quantum can stop her, T'Pol runs into the fire and releases Menos from the table. Quantum trains his phase pistol on them as they stand up, and orders T'Pol to refasten the restraints now. A ceiling beam falls -- how did the fire climb fast enough to burn through a ceiling beam so it could loosen and fall on them? -- and knocks T'Pol and Menos to the ground. Quantum scrambles to T'Pol's side and sees the empty restraints. "Where's Menos?" T'Pol moans. Quantum calls out to May-blitz, who executes a huge leap over the burning stuff and joins them. Once outside the bar, Quantum asks where Menos's ship is, and reminds T'Pol that her mission isn't to determine his guilt but to return him to Vulcan. And then make out with her captain. Pretty large talk coming from one who's had some minor difficulties simply following mission orders without letting his moral fiber gum things up. T'Pol just stares at him. Quantum shakes her arm and asks again where Menos's ship is. Finally, T'Pol takes off running across the platform with May-blitz and Quantum following. Has it been four hours already, or did they all tie magic belts around their feet without me noticing?
