Quantum tells Shran, T'Pol, and Wilbur that the drone got away, and that a Tellarite ship was hit but an Andorian ship came to its rescue. Quantum would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. Shran recognizes they have a common threat, and Wilbur extends his hand, saying they have more to discuss than trade disputes. "Why wait until we get to Babel?" Quantum asks, opening his arms wide like Clinton on the White House lawn. "Maybe because there are trained diplomats there, you jackass!" Dr. Mathra bellows.
In New Romuleans, 2nd Romnana reports that the drone has reentered Romulan space. "Disconnect the pilot," Val-dor-EE orders. The Gimp's head comes off to reveal a very, very pale blue Andorian with milky white Geordi eyes. Huh. Geordi La Bleu is not what I was expecting.
Next week: We meet the -- Alborians? Andinos? And T'Pol goes mind-to-mind with them in a deadly tête-à-tête.
