The crew, starving and desperate, head for a mining colony within a giant Budong carcass. To get supplies, they must contend with B'Sogg, the camp's overlord, who has his eye on Chiana. Zhaan, worst affected by the lack of food, needs meat to survive a Delvian defense response which makes her sprout buds of toxic pollen. The crew go to work, in their different ways, to get meat for Zhaan. Chiana works on B'Sogg, offering herself in return for his help. Rygel tries his hand at the local gambling tables, but loses badly to the resident hustlers. D'Argo and Altana, an old friend of Chiana's, go crystal mining within the carcass. When Altana is attacked and killed by the Keedva, a vicious creature that roams the mining tunnels, Crichton soon discovers that B'Sogg, the colony's self-styled Keedva slayer, is in fact controlling the creature. B'Sogg unleashes the Keedva on an unarmed Crichton, leaving him to kill or be killed.
