Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Armed with new star charts from the botanist Br'nee (introduced in the previous episode "Bone to Be Wild"), Moya and her crew try to slip past the PeaceKeepers unnoticed, but to no avail. As Rygel (Jonathan Hardy) evinces a willingness to sell out his fellow crew members to regain his royal power, PK captain Crais (Lani Tupu) is ousted by his superiors and the hybrid Scorpius (Wayne Pygram) is installed in his place. Moya, her new infant starship, and the crew members (even the duplicitous Rygel) continue to formulate escape plans, but the situation remains unresolved by the end of the episode. First broadcast January 28, 2000, "Family Ties" served as the traditional cliffhanger ending for season one of Farscape.
