The team quickly forms a plan -- to study what caused the baby's disintegration and find out how to cure it. The quarantined group will work from inside, the others will use the rest of the ship's tools.
Jhirl tells D'Branin he needs to pull his gear out of the memory pod to help their friends in quarantine. He does not want to -- as he is using it to obsessively communicate with his dead daughter, Skye.
Lommie is getting very into the computer system -- she now has four ports in her arms. And she needs to make sure that "young Cynthia" is not causing problems and helping break Cynthia Eris's consciousness out of the firewalls.
Tessia tells Eris that they may need to take drastic measures. The spores cannot get out of quarantine and infect the entire ship. Which means, if it comes to it and they can't find a fast solution, they will need to kill every living thing in that room with a decontamination blast. Yes, even themselves.
Matheson tries to talk to Thale -- to get a sense of what the Volcryn ship has in store for them -- but it's too much. She collapses by his ice bath and D'Branin rescues her. They head to the medical unit.
