As the USS Stanza was travelling through Typer Space at Ridiculously Warped Speed, Chief Security Officer Summer Yar contacted the Bridge.
"Captain, Commander, Rear Admiral ... Christ, everybody! It appears we've had a security breach."
And appearing on the giant wide screen television was surveillance video footage of OrQ sneaking into an escape pod. Moments later, the pod ejected from the Stanza.
"Toh ghe'or?!" Warfyroo exclaimed as he rubbed the ridge on his forehead perplexedly. "Didn't we lose an escape pod already?!"
Spock-Josh was quick to explain.
"It appears that OrQ took advantage of quantum physics by jumping really high in the air just as we were entering Typer Space. Thus he was left behind in the immediate Past, through which he then leisurely wandered back into Episode Two and ejected."
"Wait," interrupted Captain Blaze, "this is hurting my brain ..."
"This is Science Fiction!" squealed Commander Deannavati, clapping her hands excitedly. "Anything can happen!"
"Oh, nooo!" Nurse Daisy cried out. "We're sliding because of all my fostered banana peels that are stuck to the Stanza's End Stop! We're going to zoom right by planet Quoteunquote!"
It was pandemonium on the bridge, as if were being filmed by a drunken cameraman. Fiftysevenhours

landed face first in Nurse Daisy's lemon curd pie.
And that's when T'PoetsRevenge dashed across the Bridge and like a soldier and a grenade, she flung herself Vulcan ears and all onto the Electromagnetic Ellipsis!
