So Aeryn has taken Crais over to the smaller ship, and Crais is grandly and somewhat hungrily gloating over the fact that the Peacekeeper technology was successful in creating a Leviathan-warship hybrid. Aeryn asks if that means there were other attempts to breed a ship such as this, and Crais happily agrees that there were "numerous" tries. "All ending disastrously, killing both mother and child. But now I know why." Well, I'm sure we all agree that it was worth it, then, even the Leviathan child who could probably disintegrate you right where you stand. Aeryn muses that the other Leviathans were wearing control collars, and Crais commends her on her intelligence. Of course, given that the baby would have destroyed Moya from the inside without the quick work of Pilot and Chiana, I think it's a little more complicated than that, but when Crais's ego is talking, it's hard to hear anyone else. Crais thinks that the ship will have no effect on Scorpius, no matter how it's used, which just goes to show that time can prove anyone wrong. He goes on that the fact that the ship responds to direct voice command is by design, as, although the ship can support a Pilot, they saw no need to dilute the Captain's power, the "command and response possibilities," by making that a necessity. Aeryn is unhappy to learn that the ship won't have a Pilot, and tells Crais there will be no possibilities if they don't escape from Scorpius. Well, there are possibilities concerning torture and scientific experimentation, but I think we can all agree not to dwell on those. Crais agrees that the baby will be of no use to them until he's fully grown, so Aeryn warily tells him to leave him out of their escape. It feels like she's got half an idea that Crais might be up to something. I'd suggest finding the other half, and quickly.
