Complete Credits


Shop till you drop.

While the boys are off at camp, the girls go shopping, to buy Moya a disguise. Their expedition takes them to a black-market trading outpost; unfortunately, it also happens to be where the Peacekeepers have arranged a clandestine summit with the Scarrans, whose duplicity catches more than just Grayza offguard.
