In the crew quarters, La Forge witnesses many nude or barely clothed bodies, all frozen.
Opening communications, the Enterprise bridge crew hear a woman speaking in a seductive voice.
In confusion, Data requests for the woman to repeat her message, in which she states that a huge 'blowout' is about to occur.
Many other crew on the Tsiolkovsky begin laughing before a large explosive sound is heard followed by silence. Data responds stating that the crew had just opened an emergency hatch.
They approach a distorted screen which Riker makes out as the bridge.
Data successfuly repairs the screen to clear the static, to which they see the bridge is empty of all loose items, and people; and is open to space; the emergency hatch was indeed blown.
Riker remarks the crew were all sucked out into space, to which Data corrects him, stating that they were instead "blown out." Yar contacts Riker from Engineering, stating that ten people present there are frozen.Someone had modified the environmental controls, venting all heat into space.This prompts Commander Riker to stand up and head to the turbolift, followed by Data, Geordi La Forge and Natasha Yar, to beam over to the Tsiolkovsky.As they leave, Worf reports to Picard that there are no life signs on board the ship.On the Tsiolkovsky, the ship is on red alert as the away team spreads out to investigate the ship.The corridors are quiet, but are littered with discarded items and food. Data states that the mess in the corridor indicates a "wild party", to which Riker agrees.
