crew, already vulnerable on the unarmed Leviathan, find themselves
in a particularly tenuous situation regarding Talyn. The Peacekeeper
Leviathan/gunship was found nearly dead and it's captain, Crais,
unconscious during Eat Me. Moya has now attached herself to Talyn
and both have taken refuge within the nelvasticly charged atmosphere
of Kanvia. Moya is trying to give her offspring nutrients, but doing
so will not be enough to revive her child. For Talyn to make a full
recovery, the crew must find Chromextin, a stimulant that will heal
him. They must do so quickly, because Talyn's still unknown attackers
could be just beyond the planet's atmosphere ready to strike again.
Rygel, and Chiana are on the planet negotiating the purchase of
Chromextin when trouble starts. Chiana is accosted by a local jerk
and D'Argo comes to her aid by knocking her attacker around the
room. There's just one problem - the jerk's name is Rinic Tolven,
Karvia's security minister and the petulant heir to the throne.
Needless to say, Tolven decides not to sell any Chromextin to Moya's
crew. In fact, he'd rather blow Moya and Talyn out of the sky. Rygel
attempts to make peace with Tolven's father, Rinic Pralanoth, but
manages only a get off our planet in one arn or you're toast
for the crew, Crais finally awakens - much to the surprise of his
nurse, Jool. Not recognizing Jool, and apparently thinking he was
captured, Crais becomes highly agitated. That is, until he sees
Crichton and realizes he is on board Moya. Crais is shocked when
Aeryn -who is very much alive - walks though the door. Crais reveals
the story of a deadly encounter with a Peacekeeper retrieval squad.
The Peacekeepers want Talyn back and will stop at nothing to get
him. This includes the enlistment of Peacekeeper special forces,
whose leader has a startling connection to Aeryn.
with Aeryn, Crais finally reveals the contents of the data chip
he was carrying around in DMD. It contains
information from Aeryn's personal file, including data on her mother.
The chip shows a recording from the night Xhalax Sun came to her
daughter's beside revealing the truth behind her love for the child.
Of course, this is the same story Aeryn told Crichton in FT
- the child in the recording is Aeryn. Xhalax Sun is now a deadly
Peacekeeper special operative in charge of capturing Talyn. She
knows of Aeryn's bond with Talyn and will attempt to use that fact
to her advantage. Little is seen of Xhalax today, but Aeryn's proclivity
for violence is, apparently, inherited from her mother's side of
the crew is trying to deal with the situation of Talyn's health,
they must contend with one other distraction - two Johns. Having
trouble telling the two John's apart, Aeryn instructs one to wear
a green shirt from now on. The black shirted John goes down to the
planet to negotiate the Chromextin sale with Pralanoth. The green
shirted John spends his time with Stark repairing Talyn. Black John
is successful in his negotiations because he is able to convince
Pralanoth that he has no wish to get involved with local politics.
John is immobilized by Tolven's henchmen and a creature, called
a stannat, attached itself to John's head. The creature can detect
if a person is lying and is trained to kill. Pralanoth is convinced
John is telling the truth and authorizes the sale.
Pralanoth's daughter and competitor for the throne, Sarova, has
other plans for John. She arranges a secret rendezvous with the
human and tells him Tolven will not allow the transfer of Chromextin.
Sarova seems to be suffering from a little jungle fever and
has her eyes on John. Before anything can happen, there is an explosion
and both Sarova and John are severely injured. Taken aboard Moya,
John's life is in the skillful--if somewhat nervous--hands of Jool.
Jool is successful at treating John's injuries, but he will likely
die from blood loss unless a compatible donor is found. Green John
volunteers his blood and, despite the fact the two John's can't
stand each other, saves black John's life.
the black John still recovering from his injuries, it's up to the
green John to return to the planet and ensure the Chromextin is
delivered. However, time is running out on John and Moya's crew.
Political treachery on Kanvia, along with sabotage of the Chromixtin,
threatens the delivery of the much needed medicine just as Peacekeepers
arrive at the planet.
coming soon. This is a very good episode.
