Freehling: “I don’t understand. The ‘phase coupling converter’ looks suspiciously like a cup holder.”
Evans: “Well…uh….you see it’s been heavily damaged and element 511 is missing.”
Freehling: “What about the oscillator it looks like a…”
After several exchanges like this Freehling comes clean.
Freehling: “Look, I need to know what parts of this craft present a hazard. They’re sending someone to ship out everything ‘dangerous’ by
tomorrow. But I just don’t understand. I see cupholders, you see highly explosive devices.”
Evans: “It’s nothing to be ashamed of it all looks pretty benign until you dig deeper.”
Freehling: “Well point out anything dangerous it’ll be crated and shipped off for safe keeping.”
Evans: “Uh…. ok well you’d better put that converter away and..uh…that piece over there I wouldn’t touch that with a ten foot pole and over
The guards already annoyed by all this ridiculous technobabble backed away out of earshot and talked among themselves.
Back in prison area the rest of the team thinks of their fate.
Ackerman thinks of escape wishing Macgyver………or maybe even Studious was with him.
Monroe thinks of how he’ll go down in the history books as an example for the entire species. “Why, every med student on this planet will read
about me one day!”
Nathan sits twitching thinking “At least they won’t eat me when their done dissecting me like the Regellians would.”
Back int hanger...
Evans picked the most useless junk of all to be shipped away. Figuring that the useful stuff might help them escape. At nightfall Evans is removed
from the hangar, blindfolded and taken back to his cell. He sits wondering how he’ll be able to keep the charade going much longer.
Then Ford appears outside the door.
Evans says shocked “FORD!?”
Ford whispering “Don’t yell you idiot!”
Evans: “Judging from that comment, IT REALLY IS YOU!”
Ford “Shhh…..This isn’t the time.”
Evans: “I thought you were dead! I saw your body your arms were all blown off and everything!”
Ford whispers “Evans, keep it down!”
Evans: “Hey, you must have been dead man. There’s no way…” Evans turns pale white even the bruise around his eye lightens. “You’re
Evans: “So what’s the answer to Studious’ question?"
Evans: “You remember when he asked what happens after we’re gone?”
Ford: “I still don’t know I never died.”
Evans: “Then what happened.”
Ford: “Well I was in the ship firing and then suddenly everything went white.”
Ford: “Yeah and then I saw this beautiful lady and she said ‘come with me.’ So I did.”
Evans: “Soooo…….nudge...nudge know what I mean, know what I mean.”
Ford: “What are you doing?”
Evans: “Doing!? Say no more…say NO MORE!”
Ford: “Look are you insinuating something?”
Evans begins to laugh “Oh, ho, ho, ho,…….ho, oh, oh…..yes.”
Ford: “Evans she’s married!!”
Evans feeling like a fool “Oh….uh…so what happened next?”
Ford: “We don’t have time for that, they’re going to perform autopsies on the others.”
Evans sinks down “You mean they’re dead?”
Ford: “No but they’re going to be.”
Evans: “But your like a living ghost type thing, that never died. Bust them out.”
Ford: “I’m not anymore.”
Evans: “What!? How does that work?”
Ford: “We don’t have time for this, we need a plan.”
Evans: “Say no more.”
Evans: “What? I’m just agreeing with you, we need to get to work. I think I’ve got a plan you see, but first I need to get a few parts from the
