Steve repeats, "Savages?" In the interrogation room, D'Argo says that's what Stark called them. He adds that just then Aeryn started defending Crais. Nice segue!
Flashback. Aeryn says that Crais is just getting a dampening net. D'Argo, who apparently thinks he's super-calm, suggests that Crais is after other weapons. Crichton says, "You know what I think? I think you are right!" and points at D'Argo. Crichton and Aeryn strike a pose next to D'Argo, like he's the hero and they're his sidekicks. Aw, I like D'Argo's reality. Crais shiftily offers to let them supervise the installation. Stark, the yappy puppy in this scenario, insists that they should leave. Crais smarmily says he needs their help, but D'Argo declares, "We will not be a party to this." In the background, Stark continues to freak out about the Plokavians. Crais says the modification will help Talyn. D'Argo, still icebox-cool, says, "I think I know how to help Talyn. Why don't we break Crais' neck?" Crichton says, "I am down with that!" At least D'Argo gets the slang right. Zhaan says that violence won't solve anything, and D'Argo's expression suggests that he's pretty sure violence solves everything. Crais says that Talyn would be more destructive without his guidance. "You mean, your control," D'Argo sniffs. Aeryn says she could help Crais deal with Talyn but D'Argo firmly declares that Crais "wants to keep Talyn's powers for his own selfish purposes. "Yeah!" Crichton says. Tee hee. Crais says he's only used Talyn's weapons in self-defense, and Zhaan mentions the Halosians (supportively, this time). The console beeps, and Crais says that the Plokavians have arrived. So, according to D'Argo, he was the coolest, and everyone else was considerably less cool than he was. Especially Stark, who was a blithering idiot.
Stark waves his arms around and wails, "Tell them you've changed your mind. Don't deal with them!" Everyone ignores him. D'Argo and Zhaan go to eye the hologram of the ship while Crais tells the Plokavians that they're early. Zhaan points out that the Plokavian ship is carrying Novatron gas. D'Argo knowingly says, "Eats you alive from the inside out." Stark insists, "We can't let Crais get near these monsters. We have to strike first!" Suddenly Stark slams his hand into the weapons console. Crais looks quite startled as the Plokavian ship goes kaboom. And! This time the explosion is extra-awesome, because if you go through it in slow motion, you can watch a little Plokavian body go flying out of the wreckage and slam into Talyn's viewports. Whee! As the ship is rocked by the explosion, Stark screams like a girl. Crais shouts, "What have you done?" D'Argo tells Crais to give it up, and Crichton chirps, "Stark frelled you!" Aeryn holds up the transponder and chuckles, "You're not getting this back, either." D'Argo announces that Crais has a spare, and then Crais is popping it into his spine. Axe-guns swoosh out. Crais orders them to go.
