Dayna visits her former teacher and lover, Justin, hoping that his work on the planet Bucol 2 will be of use in their fight against the Federation. But when pursuit ships arrive, the Scorpio crew are forced to leave orbit. Justin reveals that during the war, the Federation forced him to crossbreed humans and animals to genetically produce a race of semi-intelligent workers who are immune to the effects of radiation. He has continued with the experiments, hoping that they will benefit humanity, but his most advanced creation, Og, has broken the other creatures out of their compound and they now refuse to leave their lair in the forest. Servalan, now as Commissioner Sleer, hears of a sighting of Scorpio, and arrives on Bucol 2. She captures Dayna and brainwashes her into hating Justin, forcing the scientist to agree to work for Servalan in return for the reversal of Dayna’s condition. Scorpio returns and Avon, Tarrant and Soolin rescue Dayna, but Servalan’s forces inadvertently kill both Justin and Og. Servalan escapes, leaving Dayna to mourn her lost love.
