Episode Summary

EDIT
With Moya immobilized in Tormented Space, Crichton, Aeryn, Chiana, D'Argo and Sikozu seek temporary respite on a planet inhabited by historically warring clans who are now experiencing a fragile peace. The crew's arrival coincides with preparations for the election of a new ruler, or 'Prefect'. Incumbent Prefect Falaak is at the end of his half cycle in power, and reluctant to concede it. Popular clan leader Gashaah looks the likely successor, but faces a strong challenge from the Chieftan of the Jabuka Clan.

Aeryn begins experiencing strange hallucinations, then without warning opens fire upon a meeting of the clans; when it is over, Gaashah lies amongst the dead, D'Argo wounded. She escapes during the confusion, leaving her crewmates under suspicion.moreless

  • Started out good.

    9.2
    This episode really was the wrost so far n season 4. Most of the episodes this season have been fantastic. I thought that this episode started well but went down hill from there. Also at the beginning it is a little hard to work out what is going on. So in this episode Aeryn begins to suspect Crichton is upto something when he is so distant from her. This season so far has been pretty good. This episode wasn't too bad. It was a filler really. The Chiana bit was good but other than that the story kind of run out. Looknig forward to the next episode.moreless
  • Interesting at first... then getting boring!

    7.0
    Moya's crew visits a planet where several clans struggle for power and a new leader is about to be elected to hopefully bring peace.

    Aeryn is manipulated and kills a dozen people including the candidate! John and Aeryn then try to find out what happened! Very soon they discover that an assassin is controlling them with bugs!

    Some interesting scenes between John and Aeryn, but nothing more.

    This episode was dull and not very entertaining. The assassin with bugs coming out of his head was unoriginal. The only interesting thing to see was Sikozu and her 'boyfriend'. I always thought of her as very reserved, and there she is making out with someone. Didn't expect that.
