All Enterprise and Belvedere shuttles are immediately pressed into service. As the evacuation proceeds, you begin to have hopes that all personnel can be transferred to the Enterprise without recourse to the transporters. At least, you do until Scotty offers his report...
Scotty: "The good news is that the disintegration can be halted - in fact, if we had started sooner, we could have prevented the collapse from occurring.
"The bad news is that the disintegration is now irreversible. The Belvedere cannot be salvaged.
"The worse news is that the disintegration is not linear, but exponential. The Belvedere will explode in twenty minutes, maybe even less. We must evacuate using transporters right now if we hope to save everyone - unless you've got a spare shuttle up your sleeve."
