The Taelon Synod agrees to allow Rho'ha be charged for the alleged murder on major Raymond McIntyre in a human court. He will be defended by Sandoval and Boone. To the astonishment of the press president Thompson announces he will be prosecuted by Joshua Doors, the son of Jonathan Doors. Joshua Doors will go for nothing less than the death penalty. Boone fears Rho'ha won't get a legitimate defense, because he and Sandoval aren't experienced. The problem is the Taelons only trust implants, because no one is to know about the experiment with human DNA. Sandoval wants to plead self-defense. Meanwhile Zo'or argues in the Synod that incarceration might be dangerous because Rho'ha might tell too much. Sandoval gets him on the jury, while Boone disagrees more and more with the agent's course of tactics.
