Maldis tires of Crichton's bravado and blows him into an archway, intoning, "Picture, if you will, me standing on your home planet. Six billion creatures like you -- heavy breeders -- your species would keep me well-fed for a long time." Crichton breathes that Maldis better stay the fuck away from Earth. Maldis delights in Crichton's fear and turns to D'Argo to niggle him about finding Jothee, and Chiana about sending her back to Nebari. Chiana's not afraid of him and tells him, "The bigger the mouth, the smaller the action." Boy, I could turn that dirty fast. Maldis says he's going to leave all of them in there and destroy the portrait, but their trapped life forces will live and he will feed on them. Maldis then walks his beribboned, black pumps across Zhaan's prone body. She screams as filaments and sepals crack. Maldis announces they will be destroyed in 100 microts from now. These villains never explain why -- if they are so powerful -- they need a countdown to destruction. We know Austin Powers has lampooned what we all knew to be true, but I really want an explanation as to WHY these bad guys even bother with an egg timer to death. Anyway, a window opens to Moya, and it looks like part of Pilot's chamber is melded into the portrait. The DRDs chitter their confusion.
