A travelling merchant arrives to the station, with the goal of selling all sorts of exotic souvenirs. All of the ambassadors find something interesting, and Kyle buys a statue for Kwinda. The statue isn't as harmless as it first appears, and some sort of a strange spirit lives inside it, and harms Kwinda. Kyle attempts to locate the merchant aboard the station, and finally manages to. The merchant tells Kyle, that he has to sell potentially "dangerous products" since he's short on money, but has no idea of the dangers that lurk inside the statue. Kyle demands an antidote for Kwinda, who has been reduced to a deep coma due to the attack of the statue. The antidote is given to Kyle, and Kwinda is saved. The merchant is banished from the station.
End of episode: the merchant is seen behind a table again on some Gigerdian colony, selling his statues to an unsuspecting young man.
