Episode Summary

Roxton saves Tayra of the Tinta people from a Hikari warrior who is chasing her. The two men fight and the Hikari man is killed. Roxton discovers that the Tintas live in fear of the fierce Hikari, and pay them a tribute to ensure the Hikari leave them in peace and protect them from other dangers. The Tinta are very peaceful, a fishing and gathering tribe, and do not know how to fight, but are determined to stop the tribute practice, but freedom may come at a high price. Roxton and Veronica teach them some fundamentals of hand to hand, help set up some traps to slow the Hikari down and help the Tinta organize in defense of their village, which the Hikari are due to strike, since there was no tribute paid. Challenger reluctantly helps, since he is not sure whether the Tinta are going to survive the fight ~ he does rouse them the night before with some inspiring words from Shakespeare. The day of battle dawns and at the end, the fight is won, but the cost is great in Tinta lives, including Tayra's lover, the father of her unborn child. While Roxton, Veronica and Challenger are helping the Tintas in their quest for independence, Summerlee, Malone and Marguerite are taken prisoner by a World War I pilot, Hans Dressler, who's still fighting the war. They find him in his crashed plane, unconscious, and bring him back to the treehouse. Malone starts to work on fixing the plane, while Marguerite nurses Dressler, but for reasons other than those of Florence Nightingale. Apparently she and Dressler have met previously, and the circumstances were not the best ~ they seem to have been on opposing sides during the war. Dressler overpowers Marguerite, and leads her, at gunpoint, out to the plane, now able to fly again, thanks to Malone. Dressler is determined to kill Marguerite before he flies back to civilization, but Summerlee, ever the gentleman, steps in front of her and tells Dressler that he will not turn the prop on the plane if he shoots her. Malone agrees to the same, and Dressler leaves, but leaves saying mysteriously that he wonders if they know what kind of woman they are so gallantly protecting. Later, Marguerite sits on the balcony of the tree house, deep in thought. Summerlee, seeing that Marguerite needs someone to talk to, sits out with her and offers comfort.moreless
