Zhaan, D’Argo, Crichton and Rygel enlist the aid of Namtar, a famed genetic researcher whose database of 11,000 species might include star charts back to their home worlds. While Earth proves beyond even Namtar’s reach, he offers maps to the other three for a small price – one of Pilot’s arms. To Crichton’s shock and Pilot’s consternation, they agree, taking the limb by force. When the data crystal with the maps arrive, however, the three discover that Moya’s computers can not handle the avalanche of data, and that the only way to salvage even one of the maps is to destroy the other two. While Zhan, Rygel and D’Argo scheme with and against each other, the prospect of anyone returning home reminds Aeryn of her isolation from the Peacekeepers, and asks Namtar to find her a Sebacean colony somewhere where she might fit in. Instead, the scientist uses Aeryn as a test subject for a new genetic graft, by which he intends to assimilate Pilot’s multitasking abilities into himself. Crichton must find a way to rescue Aeryn before someone wins the battle of wills, and Moya departs the Uncharted Territories forever.
