As Dylan prepares for a mission near a black hole something goes wrong and the Eureka Maru depressurises; luckily he is wearing his EVA suit. The next thing he knows he is at home with a wife and child, Liandra and Ethan. Back on Andromeda the crew are working to rescue Dylan but it won't be easy; he is no longer aboard the Maru; instead he is drifting in space and his air is obviously limited.
Dylan continues to see his 'family' and it appears that he is about to retire; troubled by various events. He soon realises that something isn't right but has no idea what... has he forgotten what happened before and this is his new life; is it some sort of self-created delusion of the work of external forces. Whatever the truth his 'wife' is determined that he should retire.
This episode has a decent enough central story although the use of so many flashback scenes does at times threaten to relegate this to being a mere clip-show. At least these clips are related to the ongoing story rather than random highlights from previous shows as characters discuss 'remember when...' situations as happens in some clip-shows. The rescue operation was more interesting than Dylan's story as it included some tense moments; they was a degree of mystery surrounding Dylan's plot line but as we were shown him drifting in space some possibilities could be discounted a little too quickly. Overall this episode wasn't too bad... certainly better than I'd expected from one with so much 'archive footage'.
