What's the top bot
doing down here?

You look... tense.

Have you seen Fugitive Zero?

Well, I can see
how you lost him.

He barely fits in your hand.

But I'll make sure
to keep an eye out.

Uh, you may wanna ask
that thing.

He looks like
he has a big mouth.

If that even is a mouth.

Hey-oh-oh! Woah!

Prisoner Dal R'El,
what species are you?

Wow, getting personal.
Borderline inappropriate.

Okay. Let's do this.
Honestly, who knows?

If you can enlighten me,

it'd sure be a weight
off of my shoulders.

I'd ask my co-workers,
but you banned translators

to keep us from talking, so--

He's seen Zero.

Hey--hey now,
easy with that thing.

Fugitive Zero is here.

The Kazon apologizes
for his delay.

His excuse is that he's already
given us every criminal

and orphan
this side of the Delta.

But to continue
this relationship,

he offers this one
for half price.

♪ ♪

I agree to these amends.

♪ ♪

I told him if he ever
brought us one so young again,

it would be him
working the mines.

You may be fluent
in many tongues, Young Progeny,

but only I am to speak
for Our Diviner's dealings.

Do not overstep
your boundaries.

I don't understand why
my father makes me translate

when you're programmed
to do just the same.

Have trust.

Our Diviner has a plan for you.

♪ ♪

A plan he never tells me.

♪ ♪

Progeny of Solum,
you may speak in Standard.

I know you favor
this primitive tongue.

You summoned, Our Diviner?

Did my negotiations
with the Kazon disappoint you?

You have always cared
for my Unwanted,

but that isn't
why I called for you.

How well do you know
this prisoner, Dal R'El?

I know his species
is... unknown.

He's mildly intelligent,

but his abilities... are few.

He talks a lot.

I need him to talk.

My advisor believes
he may be working

with Fugitive Zero.

How is his tolerance to pain?

Forgive me, Our Diviner.
That won't be necessary.

I can get him to talk.
But I need time.


Every moment Fugitive Zero
stays at large

gives the Unwanted hope,
and hope has no purpose here.

I should have never
questioned you.

My Progeny, we are the last
of the Vau N'Akat,

and whatever future
our people hold

will be up to you.

Do it your way.

But if you can't
get him to talk,

Drednok will use
alternative methods.

I will not fail you.

That's 12-me, six-you,
not that I'm counting.

You are hiding her
from the truth of our mission.

She is not ready.

She must not know
what I'm searching for.

I can't have the thought
of the Federation

influence her in any way.

When the time is right,
she will understand why.

But if this boy fails
to deliver, use your methods.

♪ ♪

You never give up hope,
do you?

Who's there?
Who said that?

Just a prisoner,
like everyone else.

You speak my language!

What species are you?
What sector are you from?

Does it matter?

We're all trapped here
just the same.

Not me.
I'm getting outta here.

Everyone wants to escape.
But you're special.

You're the only one
who still thinks he can.

Who are you?

Just someone curious
who needs a little hope.

Ah. Hey! Okay! Okay!

Easy, tripod!


Who was I just talking to?

Oh! Ow!
Okay, okay, okay.

Tell me again
what it's like out there.

Share some
of those honey lychees,

and I'll tell you stories
that'll make you feel

like you're living
amongst the stars.

Good to see you, Gwyn.

It's nice to have someone
to chat with,

even if you are my only option.

You tried to fly
a class-D loader

into space.


I didn't think that far ahead,

but I would've figured it out.

I saw my chance, so I took it.

So it was just chance
you escaped at the very moment

Fugitive Zero sabotaged
the manacle antenna?

Whoa, now, hold up.

Is this what this is about?

You think I'd hitch my fate
to some rebel fighter?

I know you'd do anything
to get out of here.

'Fess up.
You two are in cat boots.

What's so funny?

"Cat boots"?
You mean "cahoots."

I refuse to be mocked
by someone of your reputation.

And, uh,
what reputation is that?

Tell me where to find
Fugitive Zero,

and Our Diviner
will set you free!

Gwyn, Gwyn, Gwyn.

You're a chump to think
he'll let anyone off this rock,

even you.

At least I know what I am.

You want Fugitive Zero?
Tell you what:

get me a ticket
outta here on that Kazon ship,

and I'll tell you
everything I know about him.

Fugitive Zero isn't a "him"
or a "her."

Medusans are non-corporeal.
They don't have a body.

A Medusan?
A telepath...

You know nothing.

I tried to help you,

but you can't even help

Wait, wait, wait, I did talk
to Fugitive Zero!

Sure you did.
In my cell.

Someone was in my head,
asking all sorts of questions.

I swear to you.
I can find Fugitive Zero.

You have until the end
of tomorrow

to locate the fugitive.

If you don't,

I can no longer
protect you from Drednok.

You know what he'll do to me.

Then for your own sake,

I hope you come through.

Fugitive Zero was last seen
in the Northwest Crevasse.

I suggest you start there.

That's deep core mining!

How is a guy my size
supposed to get down there?

You're crafty.

Hey, I know we got off

on the line,

What did we find?

From the looks of it,
our ticket out of here.

How did a ship this size
get inside here?

The more important

♪ ♪

How do we get it out?

You're... Fugitive Zero.

He's a... robot?

Not a robot, nor a he or she.

I am Medusan,
an energy-based life-form.

I built this containment suit

because if any corporeal being
were to lay eyes

on my true self,

you would go mad.

You built that... really?

Try to build one
without any hands.

I think I did a fine job.

Why are you following me?

You are a curious one,
Dal R'El.

I used to have such hope.

But then I was captured

like everyone else.

I was forced
to do terrible things.

They used me as a weapon.

But I managed to escape.

Curiously, of all the minds
I could read,

I couldn't see the Diviner's.

I could only sense
a dark purpose.

He was searching for something.

He was looking for this ship.

Do you have telepathic powers

Not quite.

But he has unwittingly found
the one thing

that has eluded us all:
a way out.

A reason for hope.

We can save everyone!

Don't start
packing your stones yet.

If we don't keep a lid on this,
it won't save anyone.

Can the three of us
get it out of here?

A ship this size requires

at least 20.

Or, depending on the species,
37 appendages.

That's way too many
appendages to keep this quiet.

How many just to get it
off the ground?

From its state of disrepair,
we'd at least need an engineer.

That's what I was thinking!

Maybe I'm telepathic too.

An engineer, huh?

Oh-oh-oh-oh, great.

Mr. Pain-In-My-Tail-Butt
is back to wreck

my loader again.

And he's found the only thing
denser than him.

What if this
Pain-In-Your-Tail-Butt told you

there's a way off this rock?

Oh, whoa!
You understand Jankom Pog?

Wait, Jankom Pog
understands you?


It's a translator.

A magic translator.

What if we told you
we found a ship,

but need your help getting it
off the ground?

You wanna leave?

Ha-ha, ha-ha.

You think it's bad down here?

Out there is no picnic.
You're right.

He does argue everything.

He's Tellarite.
That's what they do.

You're right!
What were we thinking?

We'll stay!
Stay? Ha!

You wanna chop rock
for the rest of your life?

If you can get out, get out!

It's not every day
you find a free ship.

He probably can't even
fix it.

How dare you!

Jankom can fix everything.

But who wants an engineer
who argues all the time?

Uh, someone who values
a counter opinion

that may very well
save your life.

Go ahead!

Surround yourself
with yes trolls.

See how far that gets you.

So you're saying...
we should have you on our ship?

Like it or not,
you're stuck with me.


You just got yourself
an engineer.

Now this is a piece of work.

Can wait to take it apart
and look under the hood.

Jankom Pog, I am Zero.

I thought you'd be
more interested in the ship.

You've seen one,
you've seen 'em all.

That is an impossibility.

There are millions of ships
in the galaxy.

Hey, don't hurt it.

Don't worry, Brik-brain.

It's percussive maintenance.
Sorta my thing.

Can you get it up and flying?
Of course!

In one week.
And by week,

you mean end of day?

Yeah, sure.

In your dreams.

End of day?
Why the hurry?

Dal already made a deal
with the Diviner's daughter.

If he doesn't turn me in,
he will suffer greatly.

I forgot.

You read minds.

Why would you lie to us?

How could I lie

when we didn't even speak
the same language

until I found the ship?
You mean we found the ship.

Tail-Butt is definitely
turning us in.



I know it sounds
like nonsense.

But every language is a window
into a new culture.

It's hard to believe
how many are out there.

You really need to work
on your entrance.

Your favorite prisoner...

Are you aware
of his whereabouts?

Of course.

He's looking for Zero
in the Northwest Crevasse.

And why isn't he there?

Looking good, Jankom.
Seeing progress.

And just how are you helping?

Uh, motivation.

Keeping morale high.

Guys, guys!

I found someone else
to come with us!

Whoa, Rok.

I thought we made it clear
this was a secret operation.

You invited that thing?

What is that bag of spit?

He isn't a "that."

I named him Murf.

I can't wait to hear
what he has to say.

He's such a chatterbox.
Aren't ya, Murf?


He's probably too smart

for our translators.


Ah! Oh, no, no, no, no!
No, back, back, back!

No, no, no, no, no!
Get away from there.


At least our secret's safe
with him.


Watchers are coming this way.

They're tracking
our monitors.

W--what'll happen
if they catch us?

huh, Gwyn?

You know,

different circumstances,
we could've been friends.

if it's any consolation,

I'll never get off
this planet either.

Remember last time
in detention?

You told me
about that cluster of stars.

What were they called?

The Window of Dreams.

How do you describe
the most beautiful thing

Of course I survived.

Why do you all look
so surprised?

Wait, were you gonna leave
without me?

Uh... no?

Your chance of return
was low.

Our desire to leave
remained high.

I can be offended later.

More important,
can the ship fly?

Of course she'll fly.

But without shields,

Zero will need to chart
the perfect course

out of these mines.

Has anyone seen my hand?


I'll fix the shields.

You find that hand.



These shield thingies...

What am I looking for, Pog?

You know, a severed line,
a loose part.

Fugitive Zero.

How did you find me?

That was you.

Mm... busted.
