Number Six: Driving across Nevada on I-80.
That Comcast commercial could be a commercial for Television Without Pity. "Who obsesses about TV?" "Who spends their time finding ways to make the internet interesting?" "Who finds new ways of challenging you and changing your mind about things?" That's us!
It's daylight, and the Away Thream observe some Mr. Men and Snake Eyes talking to a few Mugatos under a newly arrived spaceship. Reed notes that the Snake Eyes seem "rah-thah" upset.
Sickbay. Phlox shows Trip what happens to the gunny worms when he exposes them to different types of radiation. Delta radiation kills it, and omicron radiation makes it multiply, as evidenced by a large tub of squirming, lemon-flavored gunny worms. Trip thinks they could use portable EM emitters to blast delta radiation at the Xindi, thus knocking out their weapons before they even get a shot off. Phlox says the amount of radiation needed would be very hazardous. Not to mention the idea that the rifles may be the only Xindi technology that is delta-fallible. Phlox also notes that the neural pathways of the gunny worms are what modulates the rifle's power output.
Hut. Mr. Mugato says the Mr. Men and Snake Eyes have shown up a few days early, and thinks Quantum won't have time to complete his mission. Does he even know what Quantum's mission is? Mr. Mugato says that, as he's head honcho around there, the Mr. Men and Snake Eyes are going to want to talk to him before accepting their kimosabe delivery. Mr. Mugato suggests he might be able to get information out of them about the Weapon of Ass Destruction. By way of assurance that he won't expose Quantum and his ship, Mr. Mugato says how proud he is of his craft and that he's disgusted that it is being used to kill people. Reed comms that two Xindi bio-signs are heading their way. Two Mugatos bang on Mr. Mugato's door for a bit and then go away again. Yes, it is that exciting. And I'd like to add Kim's exclamation point opposite there. Reed knocks on the door, hisses, "Captain!" and is let in. See, if only the other Mugatos knew the secret password! Mr. Mugato says that Mr. Man will come looking for him with his Snake Eyes buddies and won't give up until he sees the results of Mr. Mugato's isotope analysis. "You should reconsider my offer," Mr. Mugato says.
Number Five: Attending a lecture on how to maximize the potential of growing the industry based on being proactive.
