After exiting a rather turbulent part of slipstream, the Andromeda finds itself in the middle of the Prolon system, an area full of radiation and dangerous materials, including corrosive waste. The Andromeda saves a hibernation capsule from destruction, but sustains heavy damage at the hands of its pursuers, who demand that Dylan return the inhabitant, their princess, to their custody.Written by
Captain Dylan Hunt:
If you don't break off your attack, we will return fire. There's a good chance that your system could go up in flames.
The Prolon order of Monks are ready to die in their quest.
Captain Dylan Hunt:
Er, well, that's, er, very suicidal of you. However, I don't believe the rest of the inhabitants in your system want you deciding their fate.

After dropping out of a dangerously turbulent slipstream Andromeda emerges into the Prolon system. This is an area of space that is incredibly polluted; to such an extent that navigation is almost impossible and Andromeda's weapons can't be used as they would ignite the gases and burn the entire system. This proves to be a problem after they rescue a Prolon hibernation capsule and are attacked by other Prolon ships, which fire corrosive missiles. The person in the hibernation capsule is identified as a Princess and her most loyal subjects want her back... strangely she doesn't want to go back. The reasons soon become apparent.
While this episode is a bit silly it is also rather fun. Having the episode set in the polluted area of space was good as it made it believable that an advanced ship like Andromeda would be a disadvantage against people Tyr considers idiots. No one will be surprised that the princess ends up getting rather close to Dylan; he seems to kiss a beautiful woman every episode! There are some fun, if not too surprising, twists. These lead to an entertaining court scene and the arrival of a group of monks who consider the princess to be their goddess. There is some action although this is more about an amusing situation; a highlight of is Tyr engaging the monks in theological discussion! Guest star Krista Allen is a lot of fun as the princess and the rest of the cast are pretty solid too.
