Meanwhile, the Android (Zoie Palmer) is restored and learns a little bit more about herself, and One finally learns more about who he truly is.  Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began at a space station, Six (Roger Cross) ended up getting killed. It was after confronting a man named Draves who could tell him where The General (Andrew Jackson), the leader of the army he had been part of before, was. After bleeding out on the floor, Six’s body disappeared.


The scene then shifted to four hours earlier, on the ship. One (Marc Bendavid) discovered that Two (Melissa O’Neil), even though they had a relationship, wanted to keep things professional outside their quarters, and didn’t like surprise hugs. As the Android (Zoie Palmer) was still being restored, Two docked their ship into the space station and began handing out assignments.

Four (Alex Mallari Jr) then managed to get Three (Anthony Lemke) from out of his quarters, as he hadn’t come out ever since Sarah (Natalie Brown) had died.

On the space station, while the others went to get some food, Five (Jodelle Ferland) tried to go with Six. He is determined to go his own way, promised Five that they would hang out later that day. She then followed him and saw that he went to Transfer Transit. It allows one to travel anywhere in space as a pod or clone of your body will be created in the other station. However, after dying prematurely dying due to the scene at the beginning of the episode, his consciousness returned back to the station. However, he managed to convince Transfer Transit’s technician to put him back in right away, even though he was supposed to try again in thirty minutes.

Meanwhile, Five discovered that everyone else was getting along as they had gotten quite drunk. After telling them about what Six had done, the group entered his quarters in order to find anything that might give them a clue as to what he was up to.

Five then managed to break into his computer. It allowed them to discover the research that Six had done on himself. Because of this, Two asked One to accompany Four, who volunteered to bring Six back.

After bribing the Transfer Transit technician, they managed to arrive at Six’s destination. However, One, who arrived in his real body, had to explain to Four why he looked different.

Meanwhile, back on the ship, after Five apologized to the Android for allowing her to get hurt, the Android woke up and asked Five why she was apologizing. After Five explained, she realized that their Android did experience human feelings, which greatly puzzled the Android.

While this happened, Six managed to infiltrate The General’s base and confronted him, which quickly went south. It was even if Six had managed to rig the shuttle he had come in to blow up. He had managed to get the The General as he had correctly guessed that Draves (Jennifer Mote), the woman he had met earlier on the space station, was the cause of the premature death of his clone earlier. However, he soon discovered that even if he had managed to strangle The General, the General was still alive as he was using a cloned version of himself.

Finally, Four and One caught up to him. It forced One to explain to everyone why his appearance was different in his cloned body.


Back on the ship, Two scolded One and Three for keeping secrets from the crew and scolded Six for not telling them what was going on. She then told them that there should be no more secrets or lies between them so that they could trust each other and work together. Because of this, after checking on the Android, who had her run another diagnostic on her subroutines. The Android suggested to Two that she tell the crew the truth about what had happened to the bite that had mysteriously disappeared from her neck.

Later, Four decided to finally contact his brother, who looked as if he was the new ruler; and One discovered his real identity- Derrick Moss (Dan Jeonnotte). It turned out that he was the CEO of a big company, and that his wife, Catherine Moss, had been killed by a known mercenary named Marcus Boone- the real identity of Three.
