Cut to the two of them pede-wondering how the hell they got away with that when a woman whispers, "Larraq!" They turn, and we see that it's Gilina, of the eponymous "PK Tech Girl." Ooh, nice. I certainly did not expect that at all when I first watched it. Not being familiar with the hit parade of Australian actors on this show does wonders for my ability to be surprised. He doesn't seem to recognize her at first, but she stealthily beckons him to follow her. She enters a room, and hides until they too are inside, at which point she shuts the door and reveals herself. She almost gets shot for her efforts, and Crichton tightly asks what she's doing on the base, and if Crais is there. She informs him that she's been assigned to a new development project, and she doesn't know the specifics, but she assumes it involves producing new weaponry. Crichton seems overly wary of Gilina, given that they totally kissed last time, but maybe it's because she's staring at him rather hungrily, if you know what I mean. Gilina, haven't you heard about the five-to-one ratio? Crichton makes an unnecessary comment about the evils weapons in Peacekeeper hands, like, we know it's been a while but we're still pretty clear on that concept, and then tells Chiana, who wasn't around for "PK Tech Girl," that Gilina's a friend. Gilina gives a good, reasonably subtle glance at Chiana, trying to size up her relationship with Crichton. I don't blame you, girl, but that one will take a while, and we haven't got all day here. Crichton asks how Gilina knew he was there, and she admits she saw him in the officers' lounge. She knew he'd never pass a genetic scan, so she overwrote the security program. Chiana, both duly impressed and already thinking about what else they can use her for, asks if Gilina did all that by herself and from their current location, and Gilina affirms that. Chiana, apparently having more knowledge of how impressive that feat was than Crichton, tells him, "This is a very good friend."
Elsewhere, Scorpius is telling Javio that they have to increase the efficiency of "the Aurora Chair." If the mention of the Chair gives you a vague feeling of dread, don't worry. The vagueness will be gone soon enough. Javio says he's understaffed. Scorpius: "Understaffed or mismanaged?" Well, now that Scorpius has arrived, I don't think Javio's management skills are going to continue to be particularly relevant.
