Storyline

While in command of the Andromeda during the night shift, Harper decides to initiate a little race with a friendly Nietzschean vessel to the nearest slip-point. When he tries a trick he calls "Harper's Afterburner" to beat his rival to the slip-point and into slipstream he causes a malfunction in the engine that could cause the destruction of the Andromeda. The Andromeda receives a communication from a system thousands of light-years away, but the signal appears to be only a few days old. Dylan hears voices telling him to pursue the signal to its source on a planet of "Fire and Ice" and he takes the Andromeda to the source, traveling through hostile Nietzschean-controlled space to do so.

As this episode opens it is night aboard Andromeda and Harper is at the controls. To pass the time he challenges a Nietzschean ship to a race to the nearest slip-point. He has a little trick up his sleeve, something he calls 'Harper's Afterburner'... this does boost him to victory but as they enter slipstream it also endangers the ship. They survive this then receive a strange transmission for a distant star system... it is from somewhere a thousand light years away but appears to be only a few days old. Dylan then starts hearing a woman's voice, which beckons him to that system. They head there and discover that the signal is coming from a frozen moon that is about to be hit by a once in eight hundred year event which would almost certainly kill anybody on there. Leaving Tyr in command of Andromeda Dylan leads the rest of the main crew to the ice moon where they meet the locals and Dylan receives a strange proposition... one he may not be allowed to refuse.

This is another fairly mixed episode. The central story was fun even if at times in like a script left over from the original 'Star Trek' as the captain attracts a stunning alien woman on a moon that looks like a set... given this series origins that isn't a total surprise. There is some fun as Tyr verbally spars with a Nietzschean captain which ultimately adds some more ambiguity to Tyr's character; Keith Hamilton Cobb is on good form here. The activity on the moon is fun although certain aspects would certainly be unacceptable if the genders had been reversed... unfortunately it is impossible to go into detail without spoiling key moments. Overall a decent enough episode if not a classic.
