Crichton is sucked down a wormhole he correctly senses will appear near Moya. Within “wormhole limbo” he is confronted by an interdimensional being who is intent on discovering why Crichton was entrusted with this knowledge. The alien sends Crichton through various “realities” of past events to illustrate how dangerous it can be if wormhole knowledge is misused.

Synopsis

Most of this episode is Crichton talking to the wormhole alien and weird filler sequences.

The ‘Unrealized Realities’ seem to be an excuse to mash up the characters and they really don’t progress the story at all. The only real purpose of this episode is to move Crichton from predicting the appearance of wormholes to navigating them.

After finally exercising his abilities Crichton arrives not back where he entered the wormhole next to Moya but looking down onto the Earth. At first he’s delighted and then he realises where he is, floating in a spacesuit with no way to go anywhere.
