"Nerve": To save Aeryn from a near-fatal injury, Crichton and Chianan must infiltrate a secret Peacekeeper Gammak Base. Though they find an ally on the site, Crichton meets an adversary far more dangerous, more ruthlessly cruel than Crais could ever be - Scorpius, a terrifying Scarren-Sebacean hybrid. And when Scorpius discovers Crichton holds powerful information, he uses the tortuous Aurora Chir to rip the memories from his mind!
"The Hidden Memory": As the crew plans to rescue Crichton, Moya suddenly goes into labor. So while Chiana and Rygel remain aboard to deal with the delivery, Aeryn, Zhaan, and D'Argo wage an assault on the base. Unfortunately, Crichton's rescuers aren't the only visitors to the fortress. Crais has arrived as well! But is the greater danger the double-threat of Crais and Scorpus, or is it Moya's strange and terrifying progeny being born miles above?
