Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Searching for ill-gotten gain around a volcanic cave, light-fingered Rygel (Jonathan Hardy) once agains ends up in the clutches of hostile aliens. This time his captors are the Tarkans, who behave more like the Three Stooges than the usual Farscape bad guys. As Sikozu (Raelee Hill) and Chiana (Gigi Edgley) race to Rygel's rescue at the controls of D'Argo's starship Lo'la, Crichton (Ben Browder) does his best to pull the wool over the eyes of Tarkan bandit chief Raa'Keel (John Adam). "Lava's a Many-Splendored Thing" originally aired on June 28, 2002.
