Emerging from starburst, Moya accidentally collides with another
vessel. Bringing the damaged vessel on board, the crew find themselves
faced with three alien guests. The first is Durka, Rygel's Peacekeeper
tormentor from the Zelbinion. Thought long dead, Durka has been
mentally cleansed by the powerful Nebari. The second alien is a
Nebari official named Salis who is obsessed with conformity and
control. The third alien brought on board is Chiana, a rebellious
young Nebari prisoner scheduled for the same type of "cleansing"
not believing Durka is really a changed man, remains suspicious
of his former tormentor and tries to kill him. Fortunately, Rygel
isn't very good with bombs and misses Durka, but nearly kills Crichton
instead. The explosion reverses the cleansing of Durka's mind and
he returns to his old, nefarious ways by holding Rygel and Aeryn
hostage and taking over the ship.
course, Moya is pregnant and in no condition to starburst - leaving
Durka high and dry. Chiana, now escaped, must grudgingly unite with
Crichton to stop Durka from killing Moya's baby and starbursting
wonderful episode features much action and character development-
from Rygel, of all people. We also see the introduction of Moya's
newest crew member, Chiana. She looks gray, but is actually white
- according to an interview I read of Farscape's producers. She
will definitely liven things up around the ship - the crew was getting
a little too friendly and cooperative around there.
a fast paced and interesting episode featuring one of the season's
best villains. The episode leaves open the possibility of Durka's
return in a future episode - wouldn't mind seeing him back.
