|[[Image:explodepadd.jpg|150px|thumb|right|A valiant effort, though largely unsuccessful]]In the Dunbar's engineering section, Peters continues to try and facilitate a telepathic link with either Malon or Jorey, with no particular success yet. However, Peters has a chance encounter with {{nrank|Ensign|Pon Pon}}, a science officer from the {{USS|Gemini}} who had somehow ended up on the Dunbar when knocked out of phase on his own ship. Utilizing a suggestion by Pon Pon, they overload a PADD to try and knock them out of their phased state, but the plan only partially works by sending the diminutive Gemini officer back to his own ship.
On the bridge of the Darwin, after Traenor's futile experiment, Shedet devises a program that might accomplish the ability to tow the intended result of lessening Dunbar from the rift. Thomas encourages Traenor to break him out of a mental funk, before using Shedet's gravimetric spikesprogram to lock a tractor beam onto the Dunbar.
Jorey, now on the Dunbar's bridge, is advised by Dragumov that Connory was able to get a message through from the Darwin advising of their intended plans. A hail from Jellico reminds Jorey that his recent experiences have a basis in reality, and he senses the presence of more minds in the vicinity than the sensors can account for. Jorey starts to suspect the presence of another ship, and recalls all Darwin officers to the freighter's bridge in preparation for tow efforts from the Darwin.
 
Finally, both Malon's and Peter's efforts to contact each other telepathically are rewarded, and she is able to convey to both Peters and Lexicon that they should accompany her to the bridge of the Dunbar. Jellico as well reports to the freighter's bridge as commanded, and Capt Dreyfus joins them there as well.
 
Back on the Darwin's bridge, Valdivia realizes that if he intersects with non-phased objects, the results are scannable by the rest of the crew. He draws Shedet, scanning the disturbances that Valdivia is creating, into the turbolift and onto engineering where he might find a phased engineer that can help him with his plans. In the turbolift, they encounter Ensign Todd Manius, a medic that has mistaken a phased officer for a deceased loved one and had been driven into the lift out of panic. Icavoc remains on the bridge, hoping to find a way to communicate the Zalkonian risk to the bridge crew. Eventually, Valdivia is able to reach engineering, with Shedet and Manius bickering in tow, where Valdivia is frustrated by not finding what he was looking for.

|On the bridge of the Dunbar, as tow efforts are underway, Lexicon notes a disturbance in his level of phased state. Taking a risk that it is a portal back to normal space, he jumps in. Peters is also drawn back into phase as the Dunbar, barely surviving the ordeal, is towed free of the rift's effects by the Darwin. Jellico feels the strain of trying to keep the ship's structural integrity up during the tow, but prevails in his efforts.
 
Renos, Thomas, and Traenor discuss the feasibility of anyon sweeps to de-phase the Darwin's missing officers. It was a idea posited by Valdivia earlier, and the situation is deemed dire enough to give it a try. Traenor's efforts conducting handheld sweeps uncover two people on the bridge, Icavoc and Amanda Rivers. Icavoc immediately shouts out his warning, bringing the fear of the Zalkonian anoxia field back into play.
 
In the Darwin's engineering section, a phased Valdivia struggles to find a method to communicate his needs to Shedet and Manius. Though not having much luck communicating with Valdivia, Shedet and Manius try to patch their combative nature with each other.
 
With the renewed threat of the Zalkonians, Connory and Thomas devise a plan to use the Darwin's phasers to transmit a visual morse code message to the Dunbar alerting them to the threat of using direct comms. Traenor contributes efforts to make the message more legible. As Thomas is busy in the last stages of breaking the Dunbar free of the rift, Icavoc steps in to man Tactical and send the message.
 
Now free of imminent danger by the rift, and made aware of the Zalkonian ship, Jorey and Capt Dreyfus order Peters, Jellico, Lexicon, and Malon to report back to Engineering and make repair attempts to put the freighter back under her own power. Lexicon relays the uncertainty and difficulty of recreating his de-phasing incident for the rest of the missing Dunbar crew. Peters's relief at being de-phased is soon replaced with apprehension as he is ordered to return to the point where the original phase shift occurred. Jellico picks up on his colleague's discomfort and tries to ease his concerns in a gruff manner.
 
Renos and Traenor transmit the details of their successful efforts to de-phase affected officers to Shedet, with instructions to prepare efforts to implement the plan ship-wide.
