In the episode ‘DNA Mad Scientist’ the crew encounter NamTar, an alien scientist who promises to use a genetic map to help them locate their home worlds and to avoid Peacekeeper territory. He just needs a little sample of DNA from each of them – oh, and one of Pilot’s arms.
But when it’s Aeryn’s turn, instead of taking a sample from her eye he injects some kind of fluid. As a result Aeryn (Claudia Black) begins to mutate into a Pilot-like creature.
Fortunately, NamTar’s Igor-like assistant, Kornata, comes to their aid.
Lesley Vanderwalt was the hair and makeup supervisors for straight makeup: Dave Elsey (now of Igor Studios) was the creative supervisor for special effects makeup.
