[John explains why he has interrupted a meeting of two groups that want to kill him]
Because I am an American. And what does an American want? Democracy? Capitalism. I want to sell out and settle down. For one day only, it's a blue light special on Aisle Three. My wormhole technology... and a free set of steak knives... for all the tea in China. And anything you can imagine to pay me... welcome to my cold war.

Having decided that Scorpius must be rescued before the Scarrans force him to talk Moya's crew decides the direct approach to Katratzi is best... Sikozi calls them and announces that John Crichton is aboard and he is looking to sell wormhole technology to the highest bidder. Knowing that the Scarrans aren't to be trusted John takes along a little insurance policy... a nuclear bomb that will detonate if he dies or is overly harmed! While the Scarrans and Grayza each try to persuade Crichton to give them the technology the rest of Moya's crew put their real plan into action; they set about fermenting distrust between the Charrids, who act as soldiers for the Scarrans, and the Kalish who act as technicians. Hopefully a riot between the two groups will provide the distraction needed to rescue Scorpius. Meanwhile Scorpius is being questioned; not just by the Scarrans but by a former member of Moya's crew... Stark!
This, the second episode of a three part story, has plenty of action and a decent number of laughs, certainly more than most recent episodes! John's speech about his bomb is particularly funny as was D'Argo and Sikozu's method of getting past the Charrids during the riot. It was fun watching the crew stir up trouble between the Charrids and the Kalish and when the two groups finally started fighting it was pretty exciting. Once again the ending looked as if everything was resolved only for something surprising to happen in the final moments leading to the 'To be continued' ending. The acting was great as always; Wayne Pygram was particularly good as Scorpius during the scenes where he was being tortured.
