Synopsis: In order to secure a vital tissue graft to save Aeryn’s life, Crichton and Chiana disguise themselves as Peacekeepers and infiltrate a secret PK base there. They meet up with Gilina, the Peacekeeper Tech who Crichton met on the Zelbinion. Gilina is able to help Crichton obtain the graft, but before he can get it to Aeryn, Scorpius – a Sebacean/Scarran hybrid – exposes Crichton’s charade and subjects him to the Aurora Chair: a torture device used to extract memories from its victims. Scorpius discovers a memory implanted in Crichton’s head by the Ancients that Crichton himself was not aware of: information about creating wormholes. To access this hidden knowledge, Scorpius is willing to destroy Crichton’s mind.

John: You sure you should be exercising?
Aeryn: Why not?
John: Well, ‘cos a little while ago a commando skewered you with his Swiss Peacekeeper Army Knife.

Aeryn: Do humans have some sort of ritual for occasions like these?
John: Well, there’s the handshake, followed by Good luck.
Aeryn: Good luck. How was that?
John: Perfect.

Chiana: Sure you don’t want me to fly this thing?
John: You know how?
Chiana: Yeah. Do you?
John: Oh, yeah. You should see my Immelmann. Check this out.
Chiana: Looks like some kind of mining complex. Maybe a refinery?
John: Looks like it’s been nuked. Long time ago. Big-time. Could be camouflage. Could be dead.
Chiana: Aaaahhh – it’s not dead. Eight targeting systems have just locked onto us.
John: Typical warm Peacekeeper welcome.

John: Do you think – that before they elect you centerfold of the year – that we could get on with the business of saving Aeryn?

Scorpius: I am Scorpius.
John: But of course you are.

John: Get – stuffed.

John: For the 9th time, Nosferatu, I am not a spy.
