'''Season 1, Episode 20''':
!The Hidden Memory

While D'Argo, Zhaan and a fully-recovered Aeryn head down to the Gammak Base to rescue Crichton, Moya starts going into labour with Chiana and Rygel's help. They discover the baby isn't a normal Leviathan: it's a Peacekeeper hybrid, which doesn't need a pilot, is armed with powerful weapons and is wild and difficult to control.

Meanwhile, on the Gammak Base, Scorpius is interrogating Crichton in the Aurora Chair, having realised that Crichton is attempting to conceal a particular memory. Scorpius continues to push, believing the hidden memory to be something about wormholes, but Crichton is actually trying to conceal Gilina's identity. Gilina comes up with a plan to give Crichton a respite by tricking the Aurora Chair into displaying a false memory: when Crichton gives in and thinks about Gilina, the Aurora Chair shows a fictional encounter between him and Crais, in which they make a deal to give Crais wormhole technology.

Scorpius uses his absolute authority to put Crais in the Aurora Chair and discovers that [[Recap/FarscapeS01E08ThatOldBlackMagic Crais murdered one of his Lieutenants]]. However, the interrogation is cut short when Aeryn breaks Crichton out of his cell and a security lockdown is announced. Stark manages to escape on his own, but Aeryn, Gilina and Crichton need to find a senior officer's ident chip to get out of the lockdown. Aeryn finds Crais, still in the Aurora Chair: she takes his chip and confronts him over his decision to declare her "irreversibly contaminated", a proclamation that destroyed her life.

-->'''Aeryn''': You destroyed everything. I lost everything because of you! ... Do you know what I learned when I was away from you? Everything I lost isn't worth a damn. And I don't want to go back to your past.

She turns the chair up to full power and leaves Crais to suffer. Crichton, Aeryn and Gilina escape the lockdown and head topside, where D'Argo is guarding their escape and Stark is also waiting. A firefight breaks out between the Moyans and the Peacekeepers, during which Crichton and Stark ask what the other was hiding from Scorpius.

-->'''Crichton''': It was only about the time I kissed a girl. ... What were you keeping from him?\\
'''Stark''': [[{{Foreshadowing}} The memory of a place I saw when I was a boy.]]

As they try to escape, Scorpius manages to grab Crichton. Gilina hesitates in her attempt to save him and Scorpius shoots her, which gives Crichton a chance to grab Gilina and get away. They escape back to Moya and manage to evade Peacekeeper pursuit temporarily, but she can't Starburst away because of her offspring. Stark shows Gilina, whose wound is fatal, the place he was remembering from his childhood, and after one last kiss from Crichton, she dies.
* AnArmAndALeg: There's a brief shot during the gun battle on the surface of a Qualta blade shot from D'argo blowing a Peacekeeper's arm off.
* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: The scene of the offspring fully emerging from the birth canal is immediately followed by Scorpius shooting Gilina.
* BittersweetEnding: Crichton is rescued and Moya gives birth, but Gilina dies. The crew also can't leave the general area due to the baby being unable to starburst.
* BreakTheHaughty: Crais's experiences in the Aurora Chair leave him a quivering mess.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday:
** Averted. Aeryn immediately remembers Gilina from their last encounter.
** Subverted. A dazed Crais doesn't recognize Aeryn's voice when he hears it from behind, but he recognizes her face and uses her full name.
* CallBack: Pilot recalls how D'Argo [[Recap/FarscapeS01E10TheyveGotASecret broke the contraception wall and released a catalyst]].
* CruelMercy: After Aeryn refuses his order to release him from the Aurora Chair.
-->'''Crais''': I will track you down and kill you, Officer Sun! On that I give you my vow!\\
'''Aeryn''': You know what I give you, Crais? Your life. I will make you watch your life. ''[reactivates the chair]''
* DarkSecret: Crais desperately tries to keep secret what he did to Lt. Teeg. He just delays the inevitable.
* DirtyOldMan: Rygel takes advantage of being in a confined space with Chiana.
* FakeMemories: Gilina creates one depicting Crais thanking Crichton for giving him the wormhole information. Crais insists Crichton somehow faked it, but Scorpius notes a person in the chair can't make stuff up for the chair.
* FriendshipMoment: D'Argo won't try to stop Aeryn from heading down to the base, but he won't let her go alone, either.
-->'''D'Argo''': If you can be an idiot, I can be an idiot.
* HonorBeforeReason: Though it will take ten days to fully recover from her recent ordeal, Aeryn won't wait to try to rescue Crichton. Also, D'Argo and Zhaan won't let her go alone, despite not being able to blend in like she can.
* IOweYouMyLife: Why Aeryn is insistent on moving immediately to save Crichton. She also thanks Gilina for helping save her.
* MindRape: And this time, Crais is also subjected to it.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Stark is certainly disturbed due to what he's been through, but he reveals he fakes his outbursts in order to get the Peacekeepers to leave him alone most of the time.
* OhCrap: A two-fer, as Moya's son gets stuck in the birthing canal due to his unique design. The offspring panics over being stuck, while those onboard Moya panic over the kid wanting to shoot his way free.
* ShownTheirWork: In-universe. To sell the con, the fake memory Gilina creates includes genuine biographical material about Crais.
* ThisCannotBe:
** The reaction to Moya's son being covered in weaponry. According to Pilot, no Leviathan has ever had weapons before.
** Also Crais' incredulity at the faked memory displayed by the chair, insisting it never happened and that Crichton is making it up.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Two mooks from the Command Carrier are shown by Crais's side early on. In a clip featured in international airings and on the DVD, Scorpius commends them for their sense of loyalty and says it must be hard to do for someone who clearly doesn't deserve it. It's probably the nicest thing anyone in Crais's crew has heard from a high-ranking officer in a long time.
* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Crais is right that the memory of him and Crichton was faked. Too bad for him that he sounds half-crazed and that his overall credibility is dangerously low.
