When Moya damages a Nebari ship in another unintended StarBurst, she and Pilot insist on bringing its crew aboard to help them make repairs. Moya’s crew is less than thrilled to discover that the Nebari ship is a prison vessel, carrying a thief named Chiana back home for “rehabilitation” – a complete reworking of her personality to ensure her good behavior. Even more alarming to Rygel, the Nebari official Salis is accompanied by Captain Durka, the former commander of the Zelbinion. Salis insists that Durka, too, has been rehabilitated, and the former Peacekeeper expresses remorse for his actions. His apologies fall on deaf ears, however, and Rygel’s efforts to take revenge only compound the situation. Chiana escapes, Salis dies, and the crew must decide which criminal to trust.
Guest Cast: Gigi Edgley (Chiana), David Wheeler (Durka), Tiriel Mora (Salis)
Notes: Rygel encountered what he thought was Durka’s body aboard the Zelbinion in PK Tech Girl. Gigi Edgley joins the cast with this episode, although she would not be listed in the opening credits until season two.
