With their Transport Pod damaged, Crichton, Chiana, D'Argo and Jool are forced to land on an old, diseased Leviathan in a Peacekeeper Control Collar.
Their fears of running into Peacekeepers aboard the ship are soon replaced by terrifyingly real foes: mutant scavengers who are feeding on each other, the Leviathan's Pilot, and the Leviathan itself... and Kaarvok, a madman with an horrific taste for brain matter.

Factoid--Ian Watson wanted the characters to deteriorate as the episode wore on, so he worked up four different levels of makeup for the principal cast.
"My name is John Crichton...an astronaut...radiation leak...I got shot up...I was lost in some distant part of the universe...on a ship full of strange alien life forms...listen please...can anyone out there hear me...Mayday...by insane military commander...I can't...I'm just looking for a way home."
