Tyr leaves the Andromeda while it is in dry-dock for repairs to seek out other survivors of his pride. Dylan and the rest of the crew remain to see off the newest Commonwealth battleship, the Resolution of Hector. The AI to be installed in the Hector was derived from Andromeda and the former AI of the Wrath of Achilles, who was destroyed in a prior mission. Matters become complicated when Romy leads a strike force to take control of the Resolution of Hector. Written by

This is "Andromeda" at its best. Okay, I may be a *little* swayed by the fact that it features not one, but two of the stars of my favourite show in the only non-"Stargate" thing they've been in together but still, it's great. Kevin Sorbo and Lexa Doig are great as usual especially her in her scenes with her hubby-to-be Michael Shanks. It's funny, she's the second woman that he was involved on television that he became involved with in real life and had a child with afterwards. When I first saw this, Christopher Judge with hair was a scary prospect. I'd seen him with hair before in "The Knight, Death and the Devil" but still I wasn't nearly as used to it as I am now. He's of course had hair since SG-1's eighth season. I completely bought Michael Shanks as a villain despite the fact that his "SG-1" character, Daniel Jackson, is the nicest guy and the biggest humanitarian on television. It was a little creepy and disturbing to see "Daniel" kill "Teal'c" but Chris Judge got to return the favour in the "SG-1" episode "Moebieus, Part 2". The two of them should have had more to do together than two scenes (one of them REALLY short).
Judge and Sorbo were great together too, almost as good as Richard Dean Anderson and Judge are. J.R. Bourne (Martouf from "SG-1") was great in it too as Ataturk but I thought it looked funny when Keith Hamilton Cobb was towering over him even though he was supposed really evil, not that Tyr's a solid citizen either! I love the way the show never lets you forget that he used to be a hired killer and a mercenary and that he seldom cares about anyone outside of himself and his son. Even when he seems to be on the same page as Dylan (not here but in other episodes), it's for different and what Dylan would consider wrong and objectionable reasons. Trance got too little to do while Harper got too much though. I especially liked it when Remiel was strangling him.
P.S. Sorry to keep prattling on about "SG-1"!
