By Sally Lapiduss Directed by Pino Amenta

The crew are being deafened by the sudden alarm of a Paddac Beacon - a Peacekeeper device that is still implanted in Moya. Since the crew broke off Moya's control collar to free the ship and themselves, the collar's signals haven't been received and now, after a predetermined time, the Paddac Beacon has sounded.

It's not just sound either as it's using Moya's hull as a system for broadcasting a signal telling Peacekeepers exactly where Moya is. There seems no way to remove the device so Crichton suggests they land Moya in a planet's swamp to muffle the signal as much as they can.

On the planet, Zhaan and Rygel try to cut the device free of Moya while Crichton and the others search for an element that will help ease Moya's pain during the operation.

Unfortunately, Moya's dramatic landing has been spotted by the natives - who have never before encountered alien life. Crichton, hardly familiar with aliens himself, has to convince the natives to help - all the while knowing that Moya is sinking into the swamp and may not survive long.
