The One With The Salamander Sex
In the briefing room, the Doctor confers with the senior staff, detailing how he has to force Parisite's DNA back to normal. He hasn't tried that yet? Do you mean we could have avoided the Tongue Ralphing Incident if he had tried that sooner?! The only way the Doctor can fix Parisite is to destroy all of the mutated DNA so that Parisite's system will be cudgeled into using the original DNA as a blueprint. He needs to bring Parisite to the warp core to blast him with anti-proton stuff. Janeway tells everyone to get moving.
Down at the warp core, Parisite is in an isotopic restraint. His slimy and nearly completely amphibious head gapes around at Engineering. He no longer has a nose, just holes, and he looks like he's sprouting whiskers. Or, feelers? From a Sickbay interface, the Doctor gives directions. Kes reports that the proton bursts aren't working. In the middle of all this, Parisite starts banging his restraints loose, but no one actually notices until he totally breaks free. The Doctor -- only witnessing Torres breathing, "Oh my god," and dashing away from the monitor -- demands to know what's going on. Stuff crashes and bangs. Phasers shoot past the monitor, which is odd, considering that Parisite is on the other side of the monitor, so it would seem that they are all shooting away from Parisite. Helpful. Finally, someone takes out the monitor, and Tuvok announces a security alert. The lights on the ship flash ominously.
