Cleopatra in Space - Humility

An overconfident Cleopatra (Lilimar) goes on her first mission with Akila (Katie Crown), Brian (Jorge Diaz) and Khensu (Sendhil Ramamurthy). When the others are captured by the Xerx thanks to her recklessness, Cleo finds herself with the tribe of non-violent Teresians who she hopes to convince to help save her friends and free their planet of the Xerx.

Despite her earlier homesickness, Cleopatra seems to have settled in to her new life (and taken to the futuristic technology with a passion). "Humility" is mainly a learning episode for the younger characters of the series. Khensu uses their capture as a learning moment for Brian and Akila while Cleo must learn mastery of the tribe's three high virtues in order to secure their help. After failing every test, some in spectacular fashion, Cleo does save the chief's life by befriending the giant Fungus God who, along with the tribe, agree to help Cleo (even if she still has trouble with the virtues).
