The Net

LexxA sentient being resembling a spider permanently attached to its own web lies in wait in deep space, rendering itself all but invisible to any potential prey. When Lexx approaches, its eyes spot the web creature and it asks Stan for permission to take evasive action. Stan, more concerned with trying to bed Xev in the two days that the universe supposedly has left, fails to give that permission, and the web surrounds Lexx. The creature’s tendrils pierce Lexx’s skin, taking over the ship’s brain and working their way inside from there. Tendrils worm their way into Stan and Kai’s heads, but the creature seems to have an adverse reaction to the dead Brunnen G. It finds an easily controlled host in Stan, however, giving it dual control over the Lexx. And nobody seems to suspect anything except for 790 – whose warnings are dismissed as part of the robot head’s usual disdain for Stan…
