Andromeda : season 2 episodes
The Widening Gyre
Despite their seemingly impossible cliff-hanger situation, everyone
survives. Trance gets Beka and Dylan to sickbay and repaired. Then Dylan
and Rommie go off to rescue Tyr and Harper, egg-filled captives of the
Magoth. Beka nova-bombs the Magoth's solar-system-scale ship, which
damages but does not destroy it. The eggs are removed from Tyr, but have
to be left in Harper, controlled only by a temporary drug. Dylan decides
the only way to counter the overwhelming Magoth menace is to reunite the
Before it was a dream. Now it is a
Beka, Tyr, a starving Rev Bem, and Dylan crash land on an icy planet,
pursued by Nietzscheans. They find themselves in tunnels chewed by giant
ore-eating worms. They escape by using a handy abandoned magnetic
launcher. Meanwhile Rommie has to talk Harper out of suicide over the
embedded eggs, so that he can repair her damaged engines.
Heart for Falsehood Framed
In order to make peace with two warring factions, Dylan must persuade
one to return a precious jewel and sacred artefact to the other. Theft
seems the only option -- but the stolen jewel turns out to be a fake.
Pitiless as the Sun
A poor mining planet asks Andromeda for help against raiders. They
invite Trance Gemini to stay as a guest while the ship is away. But it
turns out the raiders are trying to stop the miners selling drugs. Also,
Trance is actually being questioned about another of her kind who came
15 years earlier, and plunged the mining planet into civil war.
Last Call at the Broken Hammer
Dylan and the crew tries to find the leader who was trying to bring
unity to a small group of planets before a bunch of aliens waged war.
They discover her running a bar on a dismal mining colony -- then the
aliens arrive trying to kill her. Dylan and Tyr fight them off, but
Trance loses her tail in the firefight. The leader returns with Dylan.
All Too Human
Rommie is on a mission to recover some weapons data, but finds
herself hunted on a world that fears and hates AIs, with her escape
craft Maru damaged and sunk several hundred feet under water. Meanwhile,
the Andromeda is trying to stop the weapon from destroying a planet of 4
billion people. Eventually, everyone escapes, along with a captured
Magog swarm ship.

protecting the convoy through Nietzschean space
my mark, attack pattern 'last act of freaking defiance'
Dylan and Tyr try to neutralise the Nietzschean's space cannons. But it
is a Nietzschean trap, to get back the holy corpse Tyr stole.
Dylan receives a message from his long-dead fiancee, and discovers
she and the survivors of the Andromeda established a prosperous planet,
waiting for Dylan to reappear and re-establish the Commonwealth. But not
all are glad to see him -- the isolationists, led by a direct descendent
of Dylan's treacherous first officer, don't want war. Then some Magog
swarm-ships appear, potentially altering the outcome of the referendum.
Into the Labyrinth
Dylan and the crew are hosting a diplomatic mission, which the head
of the Sabra-Jaguar clan comes to join. Meanwhile, a mysterious
phase-shifting woman tries to bribe Harper for the downloaded Library [
], by promising to remove the Magog
larvae. Trance doesn't want the library recovered.
Dylan and Tyr answer a distress call, and are appointed co-regents of
a young Prince by the dying King. They support him because his planet is
strategically important in the upcoming war against the Magog. Each have
plans to promote the Prince, and Dylan out-Machiavellis Tyr.
The Sabra-Jaguar clan invoke the Commonwealth mutual defence pact [
Into the Labyrinth
], demanding Andromeda join them
in a war against the Dragen clan. Meanwhile, Harper's cousin contacts
him, asking for help to free Earth from the Dragens. Hunt sends Harper
and Rommie ahead to Earth to stir up a rebellion, while he fights the
main fleet. The fight takes longer, and by the time he is ready to help
Earth the rebellion has been crushed. But news of its happening has
reached other slave planets, and they rebel, too.
Rev Bem has gone away, to find himself. Harper tries building a space
warping machine to remove the Magog larvae from his gut. But the machine
causes weird warping of space-time, giving glimpses of past and future.
Beka meets an older version of herself who has lost an eye and gained a
child. Trance meets her future less-lilac self, who says things have
gone wrong, so they swap places. Harper is freed of the larvae.
Lava and Rockets
A mission goes wrong, and Dylan finds himself hijacking a tourist
cruiser to avoid assassins. Tyr returns to Andromeda for help, and he
and a deeply suspicious Rommie go to Dylan's aid. Meanwhile, Harper
finds it difficult to come to terms with the 'new' Trance.
Be All My Sins Remembered
An old flame of Beka's lures her into a trap, then kidnaps her,
Harper, and Dylan, to force the Andromeda to fight on his side in a war.
He claims he's freeing oppressed slaves, but really wants the planet for
himself. Dylan refuses to negotiate with hostage takers, and talks one
of the slaves into helping him. Beka fights free, and kills her
Dance of the Mayflies
The Andromeda crew rescue the survivors from a destroyed space
station, and then come under attack themselves. All the survivors are
unconscious -- victims of a parasite -- and are rapidly dying. And Beka
is infected. Then the dead start reanimating. The parasite is
intelligent, and takes over Trance. They finally figure out they can
electrocute the parasite away. Rommie expresses worry about what will
give her purpose when Dylan eventually dies.
In Heaven Now are Three
Beka, Dylan and Trance go on a quest to find the legendary "Engine
of Creation". They cross another team of three (including another
member of Trance's people) on the same quest, but win the prize by
refusing to destroy them. It appears not to work.
The Things We Cannot Change
A mission near a black hole goes wrong, and Dylan hovers near death,
undergoing hallucinations of a normal life back in the Commonwealth,
while his crew try desperately to save him.
The Fair Unknown
Dylan discovers a trace of the semi-mythical Vedrans. But when he
confronts one, she gives him orders to abandon her, because she needs to
move an entire solar system out of danger.
Belly of the Beast
A planet sends out a distress call for help against a giant planet
eating monster. The Andromeda gets swallowed by it, and must save itself
in a way that saves the planet, too.
The Knight, Death, and the Devil
Dylan rescues a fleet of High Guard ships, but their AIs demand
autonomy. Beka negotiates the 50th sign-up to the Commonwealth.
Tyr receives a distress call from his wife in the Orca clan -- a
group of genetic racists are killing Nietzscheans for being non-human.
Andromeda goes to help. Tyr discovers he has a son, who may be the
predicted Nietzschean messiah, a genetic reincarnation of their original
leader. He discovers the Orcas have let slip the boy's identity. All the
Orcas die, and Tyr pretends his son has, too.
Tunnel at the End of the Light
50 planetary ambassadors are on Andromeda to ratify the Commonwealth
treaty when they start being attacked by invisible aliens. Then ten
thousand alien ships appear through a wormhole from another universe [so
why were they bothering covertly killing ambassadors?]. Trance says this
is the point where it all started to go wrong in her future: Andromeda
was destroyed. This time around Beka and Tyr take the Maru to bomb the
wormhole shut. They succeed, but we don't know if they have survived.
