But what about the Marauder, you ask? Surely with Aeryn sucking on Crazy Death's toes, we need yet more problems. Commandos load out in Moya's docking bay, in slo-mo of course, and do a quick recon. Team Second, Kyona, uncovers the dead Aeryn body and recognizes it, and calls over her Team Leader, Lieutenant Melkor. Heh. Should've called her Caspar instead. Melkor checks out the body and congratulates it on escaping "a Captain Crais court-marshal." I fucking hate Peacekeepers. Caspar's like, "How come this Leviathan -- which is clearly the one that Crais is obsessed with, is hanging out with the keys in the ignition? It's not broken." A fake D'Argo appears and freaks them all out. It's hilarious how you immediately know they're clones, in this episode, because of the lack of banter. Normally, the cast cannot shut up for any reason. They tell him to chill, but he advances anyway, and they blow hell out of him. Melkor orders them to advance to command, shooting to kill as they go.
Our guys, still in the room, notice the heat's gone up again. Particularly poor Aeryn, who wiggles and groans and looks like hell: "Why?" Pilot informs them there's been weapons fire on board, and D'Argo and John both are like, "Wha?" Pilot tells them that Moya's not thinking too well right now, because of the Genesis, but that it seems to be coming from the maintenance bay, and then puts together the Marauder issue. He always sounds so freaked out. At least he always has a reason. D'Argo, predictably, goes into full-on wall-kicking growly mode, and John figures that the heat is happening because Sun-Maid thinks they welched on the deal.
Another D'Argo comes around the corner on the five PKs, and Caspar yells, "Another Luxan!" because they all look the same to Sebaceans. Melkor remembers the brief, that there's only supposed to be one Luxan onboard. They're both right. They blow hell out of fake D'Argo #2, and a Zhaan comes up behind them, and when they shoot her she hits the bulkhead and slides down, smearing blue bug crap all over the place. That was the one that freaked me out, even though I knew it wasn't her. Little did I know that they all manage to die in every single episode, like Kenny. If you had a nickel for every episode where we watch the entire cast die horribly, you could actually afford this show on DVD.
