Having destroyed Scorpius’ carrier, Moya’s crew has a final task: Moya wants to deposit Talyn’s remains in a sacred Leviathan burial ground. A rogue Leviathan, grieving over the death of her own offspring, refuses to allow Moya entry, going so far as to ram the ship. Pilot learns that this rogue has destroyed other Leviathans as well, which leads Moya, Pilot and D’Argo to one conclusion: the rogue must be destroyed. Crichton has trouble getting his head into the game; wormhole information is still spilling out of his subconscious, and he can’t stop daydreaming about the possibility of life on Earth with his friends – daydreams that never turn out well. Further confusing matters is the presence of an odd old woman, a refugee from the command carrier, who keeps offering her services without being very clear about how she can help. The crew works together a final time to repair Moya and destroy the rogue. With their work complete, they begin to say their goodbyes. Crichton tries one more time to convince Aeryn to stay, but the still-grieving ex-Peacekeeper simply isn’t ready for that. As a morose Crichton floats in his module outside Moya, Harvey unlocks one more piece of information in his subconscious – one which makes it even harder for Crichton to let Aeryn go. But it may be too late for him to go anywhere at all.
