While desperately searching for news of Crichton, the rest of Moya’s crew find themselves on the planet Litigara – a world where lawyers comprise ninety percent of the population. Zhaan is jailed for a minor offence – a major complication given that Pilot is having difficulty stopping Moya from StarBursting away to look for Talyn. Zhaan is then unwittingly drawn further into the ugly domestic politics of Litigara when she is framed for murder.


Synopsis

This story is told by Zhaan when she and Crichton are trapped in a malfunctioning transport pod. The core of it is how much she had come to depend on Crichton, Aeryn and D’Argo and found it difficult to cope without them and to rely on Chiana and Rygel instead. The later is understandable because both of them tend to be self-serving, dishonest and frankly all over the place, particularly Chiana.

While imprisoned on Litigara Zhaan hallucinated Crichton, Aeryn and D’Argo in turn. But in reality she had only Chiana and Rygel to save her, not a situation which seemed to hold much hope on a planet of lawyers where their chief skills of lying and deception might get them the same death sentence as Zhaan was facing. But they managed, with some help from Pilot and Moya.

The wonderfully over the top costume of the judge.

Chiana faces down the head of the ruling legal firm who was really responsible for the murder and setting up Zhaan to take the blame.

His evil henchwoman. Once again Farscape doesn’t take the predictable path and has a female in this role and as the judge.

A happy ending.
