Storyline

While flying Crichton's ship near a sun with high flare activity, John and Aeryn narrowly avoid getting sucked into an unstable wormhole. In an attempt to save his damaged ship, he sets down on the desert planet below to see a repairman. She informs him that the solar activity he needs to open another wormhole should be dying down before his ship can be repaired, but they reoccur regularly. If he cannot get his ship repaired and back up in orbit by the time the flares die down, Crichton will be unable to get home for another 5 years. Written by trekkie4christ

While taking his module on a test flight near solar flares Crichton opens a wormhole but it turns out to be unstable and the module is damaged. He, along with Aeryn can't get the module back to Moya so land on the planet they were orbiting with the intention of getting it repaired. Here they see a beacon announcing the reward for D'Argo, Rygel and Zhaan. Two bounty hunters turn up and Crichton bluffs them into believing he and Aeryn are also after the bounty... this works well enough until D'Argo comes down to the planet and gets captured; to prove he can be trusted Crichton must join in the torture! The bounty hunters aren't the only problem of course; the price for getting his module repaired will be higher than he expected.

Once again Farscape doesn't disappoint and although at first glance this would appear to be another stand alone episode it does fit in with the plot arc of having Crichton trying to figure out how to find a stable wormhole that might get him back to Earth. The setting has a good 'Mad Max' feel to it; a desert planet with a fairly motley collection of characters. Guest star Magda Szubanski did a good job as the engineer Furlow; I have a feeling that we haven't seen the last of her after her deal with Crichton. People who want to see some action shouldn't be disappointed either as Aeryn gets into a fight and the episode climaxes with an impressive shoot out against the bounty hunters.
