Moya receives a signal from Talyn to meet up. But at the rendezvous point, Moya doesn’t meet Talyn – instead it encounters a transport pod of escaped prisoners and a captured Peacekeeper tech. The prisoners had been used as test subjects for an experimental weapon when they escaped; in the escape, one of the prisoners dissolved into many pieces. Fortunately, this particular creature is able to reassemble and heal itself, with a little help. Meanwhile, the crew escorts the remaining prisoners. Chiana befriends a Nebari imprisoned for being an androgyn, or hermaphrodite; Rygel enjoys the charms of a Hynerian female, and D’Argo accompanies a mutilated Scarran. When Moya and Talyn do finally meet, Crichton eagerly greets the crew in the hangar. But the reunion turns sour when Aeryn can barely look at him and Crais explains that his counterpart is dead. Amongst the deceased Crichton’s personal effects is Stark’s mask, which contains a message for the living Crichton. But before he can receive it, the reunited crew must deal with the crisis at hand – one of the prisoners is betraying them all, sending signals to the Peacekeepers. And an increasingly prescient Chiana is sure that this will not end well for everyone.
