Farscape : Twice Shy

April 22, 2015 in Farscape by Firebird


Chiana purchases Talikaa, an abused slave girl from a passing Trading Ship. When the crew starts acting strangely and Talikaa goes missing, they realize she may not be as innocent as she first seemed. The crew tracks down the Trading Ship only to find its occupants have succumbed to a painful death, the result of neural harvesting by an alien arachnid. When it is revealed that the arachnid is Talikaa’s true form, Moya’s crew must hunt down Talikaa before they suffer the same fate.



Talikaa first hightens the crew’s prime characteristics and then harvests them taking Crichton’s optimism, Aeryn’s self control, Rygel’s greed, D’Argo’s anger and Chiana’s sex drive.


She’s sure an ugly thing in her natural form.


and the way her victims die is nasty


but the crew figure out that something is wrong fairly quickly and find out what they’re dealing with.


Luckily Noranti is too old to be of interest and Sikozu is immune. They allow Talikaa to harvest Scorpius and then Sikozu and a weakened Crichton follow her to her nest.

Main points of interest, Crichton and Aeryn finally get back together, Scorpius has definitely got a thing for Sikozu, oh and not for the first time the crew end up eating the monster of the week. Spider stew anyone?
