Those onboard are all wearing yellow jumpsuits. They have come from Gallifron, a cruel world led by a dictator.
The crew of the Ascendant try to accommodate the refugees. All the refugees are acting like children except one Angelika. Its later determined that they've been tortured and coerced into being like children. All the members of the crew of the Andromeda have difficulty with one or other of the group.

They discover the information that the Commonwealth want and therefore the Doctor is no longer highly valuable to the Commonwealth.
