Blake plans to reunite the planet Lindor, whose ex-president, Sarkoff, is currently being held captive by the Federation. Blake and Cally teleport to the planet where Sarkoff is now living in forced retirement in a reproduction stately home surrounded by his priceless antiques and with only his daughter Tyce for company. Sarkoff refuses to go along with Blake’s wishes, even refusing to listen to the appeals of Tyce. Meanwhile, back aboard Liberator, the crew receive a distress call and sets off to investigate. Blake manages to elicit Sarkoff’s eventual co-operation by threatening to destroy his precious antique collection, and they all return to Liberator, only to find that the ship has been taken over by Amagon bounty hunters, who came aboard after using their ploy of the distress call. Avon, Vila and Gan are being held prisoner, while Jenna, who was once involved with the Amagon leader, Tarvin, has now apparently joined the bounty hunters. However, this is just a ploy by Jenna to help free the ship. Soon a confrontation ensues on the flight deck: Tyce pulls a gun on Tarvin, but she is overpowered, and instead Sarkoff seizes the weapon. When Tarvin threatens to kill Tyce, the ex-president is unable to bring himself to act, but then Blake distracts the bounty hunter, and Sarkoff shoots, killing Tarvin, and finally proving to himself that he is able to fight for what is precious to him. To Blake’s approval, Sarkoff decides to begin the reunification of his homeworld of Lindor.
