Moya is searching for a planet on which Zhaan can heal when Pilot informs Crichton that they’ve detected a wormhole. While he knows the urgency of Zhaan’s condition, Crichton figures a quick survey of the wormhole to gather data can’t hurt. Unfortunately, that’s when another craft comes spinning out of the wormhole, crashing through and merging with Moya. The fused craft is bouncing through a series of wormholes, and Moya’s systems seem to be shutting down as a result. The crew also begin to see visions of a flying serpent-like creature. The commander of the other ship, Neeyala, reports that the only way to disentangle the ships and escape the wormhole is to have the ships push off against each other, with the result being that one ship will be sucked into the wormhole and destroyed. Moya’s deterioration makes her appear to be the logical candidate, to everyone’s grief, particularly Zhaan. As the crew prepares for the detachment, they accidentally open another of the cryopods – but this time, the occupant survives. As Crichton scans through the data collected from the wormhole loop, he sees a familiar transmission – an old television broadcast. A sign of home.
