Luke and Clyde find themselves, along with other laser tag winners, as captives of General Kudlak, who is abducting the most capable laser tag players from Earth to serve as soldiers on behalf of his insectoid species, which is locked in a seemingly endless war. When Sarah discovers where Luke and Clyde have been sent, and why, she’s outraged and demands that Grantham teleport her to Kudlak’s warship in Earth orbit. She confronts the General about the abductions, but neither of them know that Luke and Clyde are already staging their own escape attempt.

Guest Cast: Alexander Armstrong (Mr. Smith), Chook Sibtain (Mr. Grantham), Sarah Haynes (Carrie Metcalf), Pamela Merrick (Wendy), Sonny Muslim (Lance), James Bellamy (Brandon Butler), Nadiyah Davis (Jen), Chrissie Furness (Cashier), Paul Kasey (Kudlak / Emperor / Mistress), Silas Carson (voice of Kudlak / Emperor), Tina Greatex (voice of Mistress)
Notes: Sarah says that she never thought she’d see the Earth from space again – a statement which could apply equally to her travels with the Doctor, or to the unresolved cliffhanger of the Sarah Jane Smith audio series from Big Finish, which left her character in orbit with no apparent means of escape.
