crew makes landfall on Dryth and adventure ensues.
The Protector travels to Dryth and hides behind a moon
to avoid provoking an attack. For the same reason, they can't
take a shuttle down to the planet's surface, so Fred sends them
down to a barren desert area via the digitizer. But something goes
Nesmith and Gwen find their heads have been placed on each
other's bodies! Brandon is able to rectify the situation with
his Questarian knowledge.
Meanwhile, on Earth, Guy is having difficulty keeping the
disguised Drythans in line while they represent the actors as a
cover for their absence.
Back on the surface of Dryth, the crew and Dac face a wild arbu,
a gorilla-like lizard beast. Dac kills the beast, but it spits
venom on Tommy in its death-throes. Tommy is dying, but
Brandon digitizes him up to the Protector's medical
bay. Then the trek to meet Dac's leader continues.
