Captain Archer is only barely able to escape a horrible death and once again the Augments have gotten away. They disappear into Klingon space. Dr. Soong decides the ship should head to an area called Briar Patch, that will be hard to detect because of radiation. There he wants to let the embryos grow up peacefully. Once again Malik completely disagrees with him. He has taken dangerous pathogens from Cold Station 12 and plans to bombard a Klingon colony, ensuring the Federation will be too busy fighting a war with the Klingons. Malik is very convinced his plan is the best. Written by

Did You Know?
After Dr. Soong and the Augments escape from Cold Station 12, they take the Klingon Bird of Prey into a region of space with radiation from supernova remnants, to which the Klingons called Klach D'kel Brakt, to which Soong gives the nickname of the "Briar Patch". This is the same region of space containing the Ba'ku homeword in Star Trek: Insurrection
(1998). This region is also the site of the Battle of Klach D'kel Brakt, where Dahar Master Kor led the Klingons in a glorious victory over the Romulans in 2271, and nearly a century later, would re-create that battle on one of the holosuites in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Blood Oath
(1994). See more

Dr. Arik Soong
You could at least let me finish my work before you take it away and destroy it.
Capt. Jonathan Archer
No one's destroyed anything. It's being stored in a secure location. Maybe someday, we'll figure out how to use it to benefit Humanity.
Dr. Arik Soong
I wouldn't count on it.
