John Crichton, along with several of his Moya crewmates, returns to present day Earth. 
The Moya crew spend an indeterminate number of weeks or months on Earth, exchanging information and touring the planet. They reside in a mansion in Florida. During this period they are extensively videotaped by Bobby Coleman. At one point, Jack Crichton becomes the first human to visit Saturn, courtesy of Aeryn Sun.
