The crew of the Moya discover that Peacekeepers have somehow managed to get a homing device onboard the ship. As the ship is a Leviathan, it is not possible to just remove the device. To do so will hurt Moya. Aeryn Sun, John Crichton and Captain Ka D'argo journey down to the planet to get a drug that will sooth the pain. On the planet, their presence is detected by the inhabitents and split up. John makes his way to a small village where he meets a woman and her son. The woman is very much into alien life and she becomes afraid of him quickly but he quickly wins her over. When the planets military arrive at the village, she agrees to hide John. However, for Ka, he is not so lucky and is captured by the planets military and is to be killed. John manages to rescue Ka and return to the planet with the chemical they had come looking for. Whilst they were down on the planet, Rygel had managed to remove the device.
