Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On board the Maru, Trance (Laura Bertram) and Harper (Gordon Michael Woolvett) are captured by their untrustworthy former Nightsider boss Gerentex (John Tench). Demonstrating virtually no remorse for having previously betrayed the Maru crew, Gerentex nonetheless expects them to help him get his hands on a powerful and priceless artifact. But though this situation is dangerous enough, the crew faces even greater danger from Gerentex's angry creditors. "Fear and Loathing in the Milky Way" was first telecast on April 9, 2001.
