[[Jayne Cobb|Jayne]] arrives to find that his mother has sent him a home-knitted cap, and he proudly dons it. The others observe the hideous headgear with a mixture of amusement and sarcasm. ("''A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.''") The other shipped item is a huge crate addressed to [[Malcolm Reynolds|Mal]] and [[Zoë Alleyne Washburne|Zoë]]. They open it to discover a dead body.

Flashback to seven years earlier at the [[Battle of Du-Khang]]. As a young [[Independent Planets|Independence]] soldier, [[Tracey Smith|Private Tracey Smith]], calmly prepares a meal behind cover, an [[Union of Allied Planets|Alliance]] soldier sneaks up on him. Just as the latter is about to shoot, Zoë appears behind him and cuts his throat. While she lectures the boy about stealth, [[Malcolm Reynolds|Sergeant Reynolds]] comes screaming (literally) over some obstacles and crashes into their position. Tracey is injured when the Alliance zeroes in on them. Mal and Zoë grab Tracey and their shell-shocked lieutenant and bug out.

Back in the present, the two ex-soldiers puzzle over the "decently preserved" corpse of their former comrade. Hauling the box aboard ''[[Serenity]]'', they find a recorded message from Tracey. He apparently anticipated trouble from some unsavory associates, and has asked them to ship his body home to [[St. Albans]].
