Crichton’s getting closer than ever to unlocking wormholes, but Scorpius’ threats against Earth have just increased his resolve to destroy the project. He meets with the others out of eavesdropping range to settle on a new plan: they’ll destroy the carrier itself, in such a way that the crew will have a chance to escape. Before they can get too far in their plan, however, Crais betrays them. All but Aeryn and Crichton are imprisoned, and Scorpius demands that Crichton work harder or they will face the consequences. Crais and Aeryn manage to get Crichton away long enough to tell him the truth – Crais’ betrayal was a ruse, to get into Scorpius’ confidence and get access to Talyn. There, Crais plans to initiate Starburst within the carrier – a process that will destroy them both, but set off a chain reaction that will destroy the carrier as well. Crichton takes Scorpius aboard his module and into a wormhole to buy Crais time. With Aeryn’s help, he succeeds in his plan. As the carrier destructs around them, Moya’s crew must find their way to safety while Crichton seeks to eliminate the last vestiges of the wormhole project once and for all.
