Synopsis: An alien geneticist, Namtar, uses the DNA of each crewmember to determine the correct route to their respective homeworlds. Aeryn and Crichton are both disappointed; locating Earth is beyond Namtar’s abilities, and Aeryn knows her way home but can never go back. It then transpires that Namtar has a hidden agenda. He injects Aeryn with Pilot’s DNA, and she starts to mutate into Pilot! While Crichton desperately works out a way to reverse the process, his efforts are hindered by D’Argo, Rygel and Zhaan, who fight to be the first to go home.
John: Yeah, fine. Look, we may have a real problem. The map thing – NamTar’s magic crystal? Well, Larry, Curly and Moe just found out that they can only use one of the maps. Two of ’em ain’t going nowhere. I tell you, it’s like a regular family feud up there.
John: Well, you gotta give me a clue here Aeryn. Is this something new or is this just your usual PMS – Peacekeeper Military Shi – Aeryn: Frell you.
John: You don’t think I understand you. Do you? Oh, I understand. No, believe it or not, we’ve had men like you on my planet. Educated men. Men of science and medicine. Men who were searching for some self-described ideal and willing to maim and murder untold thousands to find it. There was one, his name was Mengele. To him, anyone was fair game as a subject of his experiments – the weak, the handicapped… men… women… children… NamTar: The quest for perfection demands our unwavering devotion. This Mengele sounds like a visionary. John: He was a monster.
John: It’s a happy face. Aeryn: They’re food cubes. John: No, see, the pattern forms a… never mind.
