Regarding episode title...... The first lines of a poem of the same name by R. B. Sheridan: "Had I a heart for falsehood framed, I ne'er could injure you; For though your tongue no promise claimed, Your charms would make me true." See more »

Andromeda has been invited to help negotiations between the Than and the owner of Peirpont Drift to avert a war. The argument is over a crystal that contains the heart of an early Than leader which was stolen and now resides in the private museum on Peirpoint. Negotiations aren't going well but there is a back-up plan; Harper has created a replica of the Heart which he, Beka and Trance plan to switch for the original. This would never be easy but is made even more difficult when they are recognised by the local head of security.
This stand-alone episode is a lot of fun; the heist itself might not take up too much of the episode but it is well staged and there are plenty of other things going on too. There are some enjoyably scenes between Lisa Ryder, as Beka, and Anthony Lemke, the cop who may not be quite what he seems. There is also enjoyable intrigue as Tyr has behind the scenes meetings for reasons that aren't immediately clear. As the story approaches its conclusion there are some good twists; not all of them are expected. I liked to design of Peirpont Drift with its blend of grotty, industrial, an area that looks like the tropical house of a botanical garden and the hi-tech museum. Overall a rather fun episode.
