Hoshi and Trip’s investigation of alien ruins is cut short by the arrival of a violent storm system. With the atmosphere too unstable to relaunch their shuttle, they’re forced to use the transporter to return to the Enterprise. When she arrives safe and sound aboard the ship, Hoshi feels odd, and she even thinks her fellow crewmembers are having difficulties seeing or hearing her; even the ship’s control panels don’t seem to respond to her touch. Dr. Phlox is convinced she’s in perfect health, but when Hoshi’s entire body begins passing through solid doors and walls, she fears that the transporter hasn’t properly reassembled her. And when Archer and the rest of the crew can’t see her any more, and refer to her in the past tense, it confirms her worst fears…so why can she still see them?
