Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The crew of the Andromeda tries to allay the fears of an alien race over the possible return of the Cetus, a mythical space monster. Alas, it turns out that the myth is a reality, as the crew discovers to its chagrin when Cetus swallows Andromeda whole. As the trapped crew tries to extricate themselves before they are digested, Dylan (Kevin Sorbo) and Trance (Laura Bertram) -- safely aboard the Maru outside Cetus -- face the grim possibility of sacrificing themselves to save their comrades. "Belly of the Beast" originally aired on April 22, 2002.
