Bridge. Reed announces that they've lost weapons. Cpt. T'Pol squares her shoulders and looks straight ahead, asking, "Is their ship still docked with us?" Reed confirms that it is. T'Pol takes over the pilot's seat and grabs the joystick. Enterprise plus the docked Xindi ship faces off the other Xindi ship. T'Pol guides Enterprise toward the other ship. "RAM THEM!" the Delighted Dr. Mathra shrieks, hopping around the living room. T'Pol, in an awesomely gutsy move, uses the docked Xindi ship as a battering ram and smashes it directly into the other Xindi ship. The collision shears off the docked ship, and the starboard nacelle flickers off. "Both ships are disabled," Reed announces. "Both ships are SLICED OPEN!" the Delighted Dr. Mathra screams, turning purple.
Situation Room. Phlox reports they lost thirteen crewmembers and twenty-two more are injured. As Trip glares over his shoulder, Reed reports that they've taken nine Snake Eyes as prisoners, but they need to put seven of them somewhere else, as they seem only to be equipped with a brig built for two. "Blow 'em out the airlock," Trip says with calm ferocity. Hoshi stares at him. Shouldn't a larger brig have been one of the ship's upgrades last season before they took off on their mission? I mean, they didn't exactly think the Xindi would be warm and fuzzy, right? See, this is exactly why I think Admiral Forrest is EV-IL! After telling Reed to put the overflow into crew quarters with a heavy guard, Cpt. T'Pol asks about the repairs. In staccato tones, Trip reports that they'll have hull plating and weapons soon, but the starboard nacelle is FUBAR and will take six months to fix. "The best I can give you is warp one-point-seven," he grits. Cpt. T'Pol dismisses everyone distractedly. Trip stays. "How can we keep going with one warp engine?" he demands. Cpt. T'Pol tells him they have no other option. "What in the world were you thinking when you rammed that ship?" Trip hammers at her. Instead of telling Trip that she was thinking that it's November sweeps and they need ratings, Cpt. T'Pol tells him it was the only logical choice. Plus, it won her major cool points. Trip tells her that she's a screw-up for a captain. See, I don't understand his attitude. They didn't have weapons, the ship was crawling with Snake Eyes, their shields were failing, and the other Xindi ship was facing them down -- what else could she have done? I'm totally behind bold actions like that. They may not get very far very fast, but at least they didn't lose the entire crew. Cpt. T'Pol tells Trip to take up his issues with Admiral Forrest. If he's not off at Evil Camp.
