Scorpius continues his wormhole research with mixed results and a growing sense of urgency; he tells Braca that the Scarrans’ fears that the Peacekeepers have wormhole weaponry is the only thing preventing an invasion. On Moya, the other Crichton remains equally interested in wormholes, to the annoyance of Jool, Chiana and D’Argo. When Moya passes through an electromagnetic cluster, he quickly gets other priorities – shortly after he sees a strange light creature, he discovers large amounts of his own blood on the floor, with nary a wound to account for them. At first his crewmates consider this merely more evidence that he’s going mad, but with the help of a DRD they soon realize that something aboard is knocking everyone unconscious for lengthy periods and subjecting them to some kind of violent examination. When they go to Pilot looking for answers, they find that he’s not quite himself; an energy rider has possessed him, searching for the smaller rider that Crichton saw before his first blackout. He tells them that the diseased rider has possessed one of them, and he’s not leaving until he finds out which one.
