The twinned Crichtons continue to argue over which is the original while the crew tries to purchase material needed for Talyn’s repairs. Their request is quickly caught up in family and planetary politics, as rival heirs Sarova and Pralanoth argue over whether to help them. Crais recovers enough to give Aeryn a memento of her mother Xhalax Sun – and then inform her that Xhalax leads the retrieval squad hunting Talyn. The Crichtons manage to bluff the ruling family into delivering the Chromextin, although Sarova warns one that she thinks Pralanoth will try to interfere. A bomb critically injures both of them, although the other Crichton is able to put off any suspicion that John Crichton was involved by showing up on the planet uninjured. But someone continues to sabotage the repair efforts, and that retrieval squad gets closer by the minute.
