Storyline

When a pregnant Moya unexpectedly starbursts and collides with a Nebari transport, the crew feels obligated to make repairs and brings the vessel aboard Moya. Once docked, they find the ship carries a Nebari official, Salis, a Nebari criminal, Chiana, and Captain Durka, the man responsible for the torture of Rygel, who was thought to be dead. Seeking revenge, Rygel attempts to kill Durka, but instead, only releases the dark side of Durka's personality that had been contained by the Nebari. Shortly after Chiana escapes her holding cell, Salis is found dead and Durka captures both Rygel and Aeryn. The rest of the crew must find a way to stop Durka before he kills his hostages and takes over Moya completely.

Goofs

When John steps up to the rotating circle of blue light, his right boot steps forward into the light. Then the camera cuts to a new angle, and his right boot is behind the left, which is a full step away from the blue light. See more »
