SummaryEdit

Lost and alone is an uncharted region of space, American astronaut John Crichton has found refuge of a sort aboard Moya, a living starship sheltering a fractious band of bizarre alien beings. But now Moya is dying of pernicious infection, and the only cure in light-years belongs to the leader of a vicious band of space pirates. Crichton and his mismatched companions must strike a bargain with the dreaded Free-Trader, Jansz, or else perish along with their vessel. An already perilous situation escalates to open warfare when Rygel XVI, deposed ruler of a vast interstellar empire, discovers that his long-lost love is being held captive by the pirates. Will Rygel let his own pride and passion place Crichton, Aeryn, and the others in mortal jeopardy? Of course he will....

ContinuityEdit

This story, while non-canon, is set early in season two, between "Mind the Baby" and "Vitas Mortis".

Critical ResponseEdit

Much like Ship of Ghosts, reaction to Dark Side of the Sun was mostly negative, citing mis-characterization and lack of familiarity with the source material.
