SUMMARY:  On a deep space mission, Captain Verna Demarest has a lapse of judgment and sleeps with the desperate and needy Captain Anson Harris - the only other human on board.  The rest of the crew are Artificon robots.  Embarrassed and humiliated, she wants to forget all about it... but Anson wants just the opposite.  He sabotages the ship's hyperdrive and plans to kill the Artificons so that he and Verna can be alone together... forever.

Everyone heard Captain Verna Demerest (Rebecca Larsen) having intercourse with Captain Anson Harris (Sean Sweeney). She's humiliated. Awkward conversation. Ten days... of awkward conversation... until they get back to Earth. Verna thinks they should never, ever talk about this again. Unfortunately, Anson's convinced they're dating now. There is no sympathy to be had from the robotic Artificon crew (Marz Richards & Colin Willkie). He can't let this ship get back to Earth! He'll kill off the Artificon crew and sabotage the mission, all so he can keep Verna. 'And so began a nightmare,' says Verna, 'all because I made one little mistake.'

SUMMARY:  Anson continues to pine for Verna, but a spanner is thrown into his plans when Verna's ex, the impossibly handsome and wealthy Lt. Cole Woodley, pays a visit to the ship... along with his beautiful female Artificons.

'WHO'S HUNGRY?' Marz Richards and Colin Willkie as the Artificons. Verna reiterates that they're never to speak of her night with Anson ever again.  'What's the matter with her?,' wonders Anson.  'Doesn't she feel anything?  Doesn't she like me?' Anson wonders if Verna's said anything about him.  (see video) Brendan Patterson as 'The Ear.' Lt. Cole Woodley (Stephen Simon) arrives.  'Quaint!  Reminds me of the first ship I had right out of college.  It was a gift from Dad.' Verna rubs salt in the wound by giving Anson's cabin to Cole. Cole's female Artificons (Erika Salomon, Erin Holt & CJ Merriman) come aboard. For an emotionless Artificon, The Ear sure is happy with this situation. Curtain Call


Anson wonders if Verna's said anything about him lately.
