The captain of the Serrakin prisoner transport ship Cerberus seeks Major Carter's help in winning a race and offers in exchange full access to their ion engine technology. He further explains that it is not through official channels and that they will only learn what they pick up by helping him tune up his ship. Sam agrees to help and insists upon running the race with him. However, the competition for this race is steep and there is no telling whether the team will be able to surpass their rivals.

Did You Know?


This episode and the preceding episode 'Enemy Mine' has been aired in reverse order during every airing in Sweden, for no apparent reason, since the production codes of the two episodes are according to original airing. The TV listings sent out by the channel TV6 has never indicated the reverse order, it instead incorrectly lists both episodes according to original order. See more »


The owner of the Sebrus, Warrick Finn, is a repeat character from a preceding Episode, Forsaken (Season 6, Episode 18). In the earlier episode, his name was Warrick Trevor, not Finn. See more »


Eamon: Has it occurred to you that maybe the reason you've been passed over so many times is not because you are human, but because you're a moron?

Like a Bad Video Game
14 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You'll miss nothing important by skipping this episode.

This episode is like a bad, make that very bad, video game. It's complete with fake news show, over the top cardboard characters, bad video game cut scene acting, and generic views of a generic futuristic city complete with a monorail.

It centers around a generic space race. It's filled with clichés:

  • Bad guys sabotage the hero's ship and many other ships. - One of the

supposedly bad guys turns out to be a good at the core, gruff teddy bear scoundrel. - The heroes try to help others, showing they aren't only out for themselves. - Generic, humorous commercials play during the generic TV news show (race coverage). But they aren't funny.

The only serious part of this "humorous" episode is the ridiculously simplistic message about xenophobia/racism.

I'd rather suffer an eternity of gruesome deaths and resurrections in a sarcophagus than have to watch this episode.
