Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Trance (Laura Bertram) agrees to act as emissary for the Commonwealth on the war-ravaged planet Inisi. Immediately upon arrival, she is kidnapped by Professor Logitch, played by X-Files' inimitable "Cigarette Smoking Man" William B. Davis. The Professor subjects Trance to an intense interrogation, determined to prove that she and her race are on a mission to destroy Inisi in a civil war -- and, surprisingly, he just may be right. Meanwhile, Dylan Hunt (Kevin Sorbo) tries to find out who is attacking Inisian cargo ships, and why. "Pitiless As the Sun" originally aired in Canada on October 20, 2001, and in the U.S. on October 22.
