Captain Dylan Hunt and the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant set out on a mission to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth 300 years after its fall.
Dylan and Andromeda are imprisoned on a penal colony where no one is allowed out; even the inmates’ children are forced to remain. As the ship’s avatar’s power source runs low, Dylan looks to an intelligent woman to help them escape. Meanwhile, with the help of Trance, the crew tracks down Dylan and Rommie’s location, but discover the colony’s defences would easily destroy the Eureka Maru. Dylan stages an uprising against the android warden of the prison and tries to shut down the defences so that the Maru can rescue him, but is no match for the brutal warden. Rommie, knowing Dylan is in trouble, is able to use an improvised power source to recharge herself and destroys the warden, but runs out of power before she can do anything else. Dylan manages to shut down the defences in time and the Maru safely rescues him and Rommie, but Dylan is left perplexed at how Trance randomly picked the right prison planet.
