Aeryn asks Gilina -- less harshly but not like she won't shoot her ass in the eye for kicks -- to tell her the story of how the Zelbinion died. Gilina starts to -- "Long before we arrived, other scavengers pulled loose the data spools: there's no record" -- but then remembers to tell Aeryn off. "Officer Sun, I think you should know I consider you a traitor and therefore worthy of the punishment it merits." Then she relents, like she's in any position to do so. "But as a Sebacean, I believe you are as deserving as I to know the truth about a cultural treasure. I am not lying when I say I do not know." I wish she did, because then Aeryn would like her, because she'd be coming more than halfway toward her, but on the other hand, then Aeryn would probably shoot her, and that would be sad. And not in Aeryn's best interest, frankly, in the fullness of time, but we don't know that yet, and I'm taking bets on whether or not Aeryn's going to shoot her at any given point. It's like 2:1 right now thanks to the whole "you deserve to die" thing, even if she did try to soften the blow with a "...But I still don't know, buddy." (Also, FYI: the Zelbinion is only a "cultural treasure" if your culture is deeply, deeply fucked up.)
Rygel -- who will always take a deep breath when he has to -- comes into the Zelbinion on his Jazzy. I admit I didn't expect him to follow through this time, because I don't want him to be all upset. I mean, I don't care at all if he lives or dies, but he's so intractable and full of himself that seeing him weird like this is really kind of upsetting. Like if you saw Donald Trump fall down on his old man ass. You'd laugh, but it would be really unsettling.
D'Argo runs off with some 'babble and Aeryn says they'll meet him or whatever, and takes the lead. Behind her, John and Gilina are having a chat about how he's really not Sebacean. "Human. It's kinda like Sebacean, but we haven't conquered other worlds yet so we just kick the crap out of each other." Funnier -- again -- seven years ago than it is right now. Gilina thanks him for, you know, stopping Aeryn from killing her dead before. "I try to save a life a day. Usually it's my own." And in that case it's usually somebody else doing it, Mister Man.
