Synopsis for "Replicave Seeking"
On Raggashoon, the Omega Men keep watch over Harpis who is still recuperating from her wounds. Felicity suddenly suffers a bizarre seizure and begins rambling. Doc examines her and determines that she is experiencing a telepathic distress call. The Omega Men triangulate the origin of the distress call and fly off to check it out.
On Euphorix, Alonzo Dulak is placed on trial for his involvement in the "Crisis of the Shield". Kalista presides over the hearing, but her thoughts are elsewhere. She inadvertently agrees with a judiciary panel that sentences Dulak to permanent exile from Euphorix.
The Omega Men land on the asteroid and begin exploring. They split into teams of two and Tigorr is reluctantly partnered with the quivering Shlagen. Tigorr accidentally activates an ancient Psion experimental device and suddenly begins replicating. Little by little, more doppelgangers of Tigorr begin to appear. The Omega Men do not know which one to trust. All of the Tigorr's are prey to their predatory instinct and begin attacking one another. The Omega Men, still confused, do not know which one to help.
- Doug Moench becomes the regular writer for the series beginning with this issue.
- Behind the scenes appearance by the New Citadel Empire.
- In this issue, the Psions refer to an alien race called the Velorpians who are purported to have the ability to replicate themselves. In later issues, the Velorpians will be retroactively renamed the Czarnians. One of the Psions in this issue mistakenly refers to a known Velorpian named "Lono". He actually means the Czarnian bounty hunter called Lobo.
