John Crichton struggles to learn the location of the mysterious Katratzi, whilst watching a television documentary about himself and the aliens, produced on Earth based on film clips from the crew's recent trip there. Crichton's friends discover what 'humans' think of them. Concurrently, Crichton himself is agitated with everyone, for their failure to help him determine Aeryn's location... until he remembers where he heard "Katratzi" before, shaking him from his obsessive trance enough to logically plot his next move.Written by

As stupid as you must think them, the scarrans have managed to build one of the most extensive empires in the galaxy in part - and I shall repeat this because it does not seem to sink in - by not advertising the location of their secret bases.

Despite major flaw, episode allows characters to emotionally shine
Only Aeryn and perhaps Sukozu should be able to speak English in this episode's source material, however, if you can forget/forgive this glaring error, their interactions with Bobby allow a human perspective to penetrate these alien creatures' ways, and how they relate to the target audience.
