Plot Summary: When a mysterious child is found, many believe she could be a half-human and half-Tenctonese child. Matt and George, with Cathy's help, investigate where this child came from and who her parents may be. The child appears to have a very odd relationship with a large Tenctonese man.
Meanwhile, Matt and Cathy decide to move their relationship to the next step, which results in injury. They realize that they need to attend an inter-species sex class before becoming intimate, and Buck distresses his parents by his anti-human opinions.
