Outside Lo'La, Jenek's explaining to a soldier that the Moyans have negotiated their way onto the base for real and that they have access and free movement. Not bad, Fat Man. Chiana appears and approaches Jenek, whom she last saw when he had her tied to a table, about to take away her most basic bodily freedoms. After she so recently got herself back in one piece. This scene is essential if you know where to look: seems random, really not. She's not smarting off, she's taking back what's hers. "Let me ask you somethin'. You short-faced Scarrans, you all look alike, you know? But, uh, were you...were you, uh, down, down on the border station?" He says he was. "Then you were the one that ordered Aeryn and me to be cut open." He nods, and she laughs. Not happily. "Yeah, I got another one for you: Do Scarrans have mivonks?" She kicks them in their designated place, bruising her foot on bone and armor, and goes down, clutching her knee. "Yes, but they're not external." The Scarran soldier turns away, laughing.
A Charrid officer in some lounge, telling a story about what a frelling "hapooda" this Kalish is. I think that "hapooda" means "trelk" but I'm not sure. Could mean he kisses dudes, except I don't think so, based on a later use. D'Argo walks into the Charrid lounge and immediately calls them stenchy bastards, then stares around for a sec. "The Scarrans have nothing decent to drink, and I won't drink with the Kalish. Got any Raslak?" Start with an insult so they think you're hardcore, then imply that Kalish are hapoodas, and you're in. The officer points to a seat and D'Argo joins them. There's a passed-out Charrid sitting at the table; D'Argo pushes him onto the floor and starts sowing the seeds of racism.
A long-haired Kalish walks with a Charrid into a control room shaped like the inside of the TARDIS with lots of awesome curves and balconies for later. Lots of Kalish standing around, a flight of stairs in the center, PA scratching out Scarran. Sikozu steps out before an older, official-looking Kalish: "Secretary Vakali?" He asks what she's about, given that the area's restricted, and she tells him the Charrids are going to expel the Kalish from Katratzi by force. Vakali asks how she knows this, especially since she's wrong, and she just inclines her head: "Just like you, I am a devoted Kalish." Vakali points out that without the Kalish doing all the administration, the Scarran system of government would collapse, and walks off. She grabs his sleeve: "What if they fear you will take it away from them? Please, Secretary. We need to talk." The younger dude tells Vakali he's "too prominent" to be seen with Sikozu, and offers to talk to her. The Secretary takes off, and Sikozu sighs. How you gonna start a riot if nobody shows up for it?
