So, Maren didn't not shoot Icheb in the head. Funny, earlier in this story I could have sworn that was exactly what was going to happen eventually. Story ain't over yet, I suppose.
Lucky for the away team to have the one guy with them who can walk through force fields. Well, he's a Saurian so I can believe that. But how come nobody noticed that he started firing his phaser at the force field and trying to push himself threw it? Wouldn't that be kinda noisy?
Turning off the gravity to free somebody trapped underneath debris now strikes me as so obvious, I can't believe I've never seen anyone else do that. My only suggestion for turning it back on: Do it gradually.
Great chapter with plenty of questions still remaining.
