    I don't think they ever really established a "clear limit". I would assume that it would be a temperature at least above 100 - 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

    When they cranked the heat on Moya in that one episode to repel the PK boarders I seem to remember it was hot enough to make the other crew uncomfortable and sweaty but not really hot enough to also pose an immediate health risk to them. I'd say a hot day on Earth in a hot place like a desert would probably be enough to cause heat delerium in a Sebacean.

    Basically it seems as if heat delerium starts to become a factor under the same sort of conditions where a human might have to start to worry about serious dehydration. The difference being that heat delerium, once it sets in, is irreversible and leaves them in some sort of permanent vegitative state. This is also why they fear it so much, as it's not just a clean death.

    I don't know what else to call it. There's no breathable gases, but there's still molecules flying around everwhere like neutrinos from the sun. It's just vaccumed, non-organic, dead air. Is there another word for it?

    That's why Zhaan kept Aeryn as cool as they possibly could since Aeryn was the only one of the "gang" that was Sebacean.

    I prefer to be called Sunny, Sun or SK. Thanks.

    That sounds about right to me.
