EPISODE 174: "The Third Race: Part II" (6 March 2012)
The Castor lands within the huge underground tunnel network of the Opteran Hierarchy and meets their newest hosts, an insectoid, termite-like humanoid race. While Engineering begins repairs on the runabout's damaged nacelle, the rest of the crew discovers some unsettling new facts about the situation -- the slimy resin coating the walls and floor of the tunnels is slowly sealing the runabout to the cavern floor, and the Opterans are offering their hospitality on a permanent basis. They fear allowing the crew's knowledge of the conduits to be used by the Askeri for expansion, and so have no intention of allowing the crew to leave again.
