D’Argo, Crichton, and Zhaan discover a dying Luxan elder, a holy woman known as an Orican. The Oricans enter death through a ritual that can only be performed with the aid of another Luxan, but at first Nilaam refuses D’Argo’s aid. When she eventually reconsiders, she is surprised by the apparent strength of D’Argo’s life force, and performs a renewal ritual that leaves her young and healthy. The two quickly become lovers and plan their return to Luxan space. Those plans are quickly compromised when Moya and Pilot begin aging rapidly, and it soon becomes clear that D’Argo’s was not the only life force being tapped.
Guest Cast: Melissa Jaffa (old Nilaam), Anna Lise Philips (young Nilaam)
