Despite Ted's incredible strength, the ooze is stronger, and he is
unable to free

The young man shrugs.  "Hey, you can stay here and get torn apart, or
worse, turned into some weird zombie.  Or you can follow me and maybe
we can free this ship.  Up to you."  With that he drops down and disappears.

The ooze seems distracted by something, maybe the young man, and loosens
its grip long enough for Ted to be released.  It's about that point
when they notice
more crew members coming, all armed, and getting ready to fire.  The protective
force field can't last through another barrage like this...
