    flash, baylin and zarkov enter a rift and go to mongo. flash find a race of aliens who might have seen his father. The village that flash encounters is about to be confronted by ming. we get to see stuff about dale as well. her fiance is not so keen about accepting the secrets that she and flash are hiding from him. dale is dealing with her personal life on this one, it's too bad she can't be part of flash adventure on mongo. this episode follows the show's theme, it's a comical tale that appears funny and it's not trying to be too serious, it works well.moreless
  • On Mongo, Flash discovers more information about his father.

    Like last week's episode, this first part of a two-part episode is one of the better episodes in the series.



    It follows directly on last week's episode, so Flash can use the rift opened in it to visit the Varden, where supposedly his father is hiding. He meets the leader of the Varden, Barin who is about to agree to fly Ming's flag over the Varden's flag in return for fresh water. This despite the traditional Varden lottery, a drawing of lot in times of crisis and inufficient resources. Those drawing a black stone have to leave the tribe, which is what happened to Baylin'd parents.



    Zarkov manages to repair the machine that Flash' father built to provide the Varden with fresh water, but in the mean time, Ming surprises both Barin and Aura by announcing their marriage.moreless

    Flash travels to Mongo to find or find more information on his father. He encounters Baylins former people as she was outcast along with her family to preserve water. We got to see more of Mongo's oddities especially vampire like creatures that hunt in the forest. As for Flashes father no progress what so ever was made but we saw how evil Min truly is when he gave his daughter away to cement a political alliance. I suppose seeing an Andromeda alumni was the main factor that made this episode an eight for me. Other than that not much happened to progress the story in any direction. All in all I must say this one was a little more than filler in my opinion.moreless
