  • Dillon and Harper searching for remnants of a very important vase.

    I was wondering if the rest of the cast was taking a little vacation because most of the story line revolved around Dillon and Harper.

    After being framed for murder and then escaping their cell with a little help. They went around searching for pieces of a vase which supposedly caused the owner to become very powerful.

    Most of the time Harper didn't quite know what was going on and I think that was because the writers didn't want the viewers to know what was going on either. Well it worked, because I thought it was a little confusing in the end. I still don't see why it is so important to Dillon. I understand that it is some kind of symbol, but I don't see why it was important enough for Dillon to risk his and Harpers life. It looked to me as if Dillon knew all along that it would cause great wealth or power so was it really worth dying over?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: When Harper plays back Zeus's message on the Maru, the IBM logo can clearly be seen on the monitor.

    • The sign above the door panel on Fellenhoff Drift in the opening act reads "шьзщке фтв учзщке". This is actually the phrase "import and export" written on an English keyboard using Cyrillic characters.

    • The poem for the Vase of Rimni: "Where are you going, my fine young knight, Where are you going, across land and sea? To fight for what is good, stop what is bad, All for the vase of Rimni."

    • Considering their later actions, the Collectors may well have been the people behind falsely acccusing Dylan and wanting to obtain the "Vase of Rimni", since it bestows "the sympathy of the cosmos".

    • This is the first episode that the new Commonwealth is featured.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Dylan: So, if you didn't kill Constantine, who did?
      Abelard: You got me. Between the four of us, we thought it was a pretty simple plan: blackmail you for the Shard, maybe kill you, maybe not. (Dylan gives him a skeptical look) Nah, probably kill ya.

    • Trance: He's Captain Dylan Hunt, restorer of the Systems Commonwealth, a modern-day Sani nax Rifati. Don't they know he doesn't commit murder?
      Beka: Or, if he does, it's usually for a very good reason.

    • Harper: Now we can add 'escaped cons' to the 'Galaxy's Most Wanted Gangs' list.
      Dylan: Well, at least we've got people talking about us.

    • Harper: Does this mean I get to order Rommie around?
      Dylan: You can try.

    • Dylan: Sorry about the mess... Put it on Zeus' tab.

    • Harper: They also serve who stand and wait.

    • Abelard: Does this have to be dressed up in such high drama? No wonder the theatre's dead!
      Harper: You haven't met Tyr.

    • Harper: Oh, yeah, the universe is so unkind to scumbags.

    • Harper: I can feel the wind in my hair and the splatter of bugs on my teeth now!

    • Rommie: The Commonwealth is still hailing us, and they're mad. They say this is the last warning!
      Tyr: That's what they said four 'last warnings' ago.
      Beka: They're waiting for authorization. God bless bureaucracy.

    • Dylan: The Commonwealth security force will be here in three days, so we got that much time to escape and clear our names.
      Harper: Your name.
      Dylan: You're in this too pal.
      Harper: We couldn't be in a more escape-proof box. All we can hope for is Divine intervention.
      (Cell door opens)
      Jailer: Go. Clear your names, you've got three days

    • The loyal heart
      has hidden treasures.
      In secrets kept,
      In silence sealed.

      Commander Zing Bex,
