Back on the bridge of Serenity, Wash spits out a bunch of technobabble to Jayne which essentially means that they're some how disguising themselves so that they show up on the space station monitors as radar static. Basically, they've aimed themselves in the direction of a station airlock, hit the thrusters, then powered everything down. Zoe compares it to throwing a dart at a board six thousand miles away. She praises Wash for his work, and they give each other lovey-dovey looks before preparing to go kill people.
Down in the cargo bay, which is dark due to the power shutdown, the others are prepping for the assault. Book is doing something to the ship's ATV. Zoe and Jayne come down to join them. Kaylee technobabbles that she's rigged something up that will pop open the airlock's doors for them. Simon once again is stuck holding the flashlight as his contribution. Everybody's all prepped. Wash comes down to join them as the lights come back on. Didn't they need those to stay off? Anyway, as they're about to dock, Zoe tells them to shoot anything that moves. Kaylee reminds, "Except the captain." Well, I don't think he's going to be moving so much.
We cut to the ship silently slamming into the docking lock. As planned, the security skinhead doesn't realize that there's a ship approaching until right as it arrives. Kaylee's hacking succeeds in opening the airlock. The guard immediately hits an alarm.
Niska notes the sound of the alarm in his quarters. Mal hears it, too, and breathily quips, "Listen, if you've got guests, I can come back later."
Back at the beachhead, or space-stationhead, or whatever, a set of doors leading to the ship slide open. Several guards show up there with guns. They look for somebody to shoot at, but there's nothing. Then the ATV suddenly zooms out of the cargo bay and crashes into them all and explodes. Book had been rigging it with flammable canisters and such. After those men catch fire, Jayne, Zoe, and Wash run out and start shooting. People get hit and go down. Zoe throws grenades. Naughty skinheads die. Zoe calls out the second team -- that's Book, Simon, and Kaylee. She orders them to hold this position; otherwise, they'll all be trapped. She asks if they understand. Book responds by shooting an approaching guard in the knee. I think they understand. Simon tries to look butch holding his gun, but since River isn't in immediate danger, it doesn't work. Zoe, Jayne, and Wash head down a corridor, shooting guards along the way.
