The group, after attempting unsuccessfully to persuade the women to return to the Oslian people, decided to move to the warp core of the Klingon vessel. Upon arriving, the group finds a venerable Klingon suffering from grievous wounds. Radiation poisoning has affected him. There is nothing the doc can do. Eng looks at the warp core and determines that it is going critical in a matter of hours. Nothing he can do will stop it. Com says to hell with diplomacy. Orders eng to at least contain radiation long enough to get everyone out. Eng with the help of Sci contained most of radiation. Enough to bring back comms and transporters. Com orders ALL people beamed a safe distance away. All people are gathered at a hilltop nearby with a great view of the mountain, with just enough time to see it explode, permanently reducing the height by half.
