When the crew was in Seefra, Trance was in her sun state known as the core creature. Once she was in her humanoid form, she had no recollection of who she was or what she was capable of. On Seefra-2, she met a man named Ione who was really the missing moon of Tarn-Vedra. Later, the Nebula sealed her into her own sun but thanks to Dylan and Rhade, she was rescued.


Unfortunately, she found out that her people (the Lambent Kith Nebula) were under the spell of the Abyss, but she used her sun to destroy it.



Alternate History:


In Robert Hewitt Wolfe's original plan for Andromeda, Trance's people (still solar avatars) would have been the Lightbringers, or Lucifers, who fought a war in "Heaven" (the original state of the universe as a small perfect space with all matter and energy pressed tightly together) resulting in the Big Bang. The Spirit of the Abyss would have been an embodiment of Love (the twisted stalker kind of Love, or gravity) trying to crush the universe back in on itself. Rather than being the Vedran sun, Trance Gemini would have been "a sun in the Gemini constellation dreaming it's a person" hence the name. The original vision was lost when the Wolfe was replaced as head writer/producer by Bob Engels, but was recently released as a 20-page online story entitled "Coda". Robert Hewitt Wolfe is an American television producer and scriptwriter. ... Gravity is a force of attraction that acts between bodies that have mass. ...
