Aboard a Transport Pod in need of refueling and repair, Crichton, Chiana, D’Argo and Jool encounter an older, diseased Leviathan named Rovhu. Moya has missed their scheduled rendezvous to pursue a distress call from Talyn – and eventually finds the warship badly damaged warship and her captain in a coma. All the four on the Pod know is that they need to dock sooner rather than later, so they decide to board Rovhu. They soon discover the ship has been overrun by scavengers that use the ship, its Pilot, and even themselves as food sources. A greater threat is Kaarvok, a fellow with an appetite for brains who appears to kill both Chiana and D’Argo. In truth, Kaarvok has the capability to “twin” people, creating identical genetic copies. Over time, the process causes degradation, explaining the primitive states of the other scavengers. But for now, that means there’s still a living Chiana and D’Argo, and the four Moyans need no persuading to find a way off this Leviathan from hell.
