During a routine Eagle mission, Koenig – flying solo – seems to lose all control over his emotions. Giggling and yelling, Koenig flies his Eagle right into a nuclear waste dump, critically damaging both himself and his craft. Dr. Russell is left with no choice but to connect him to an experimental device to keep his brain alive – and while the commander is out of commission, a spacecraft is detected on approach to the moon at a speed faster than light. Amazingly, it appears to be a Super-Swift – an upgraded Eagle-style craft that only existed on the drawing board before the moon was blasted out of Earth’s orbit. When contact is made with the Super-Swift, Tony Verdeschi is stunned to see that his older brother Guido is apparently commanding a mission to rescue the Alpha crew. The loved ones of many of Alpha’s crew are aboard as well. Commander Koenig finally awakens from his treatment, and Dr. Russell tells him the good news…but when he meets the Super-Swift crew, he sees not humans, but amorphous creatures. And he can’t understand why his crew is going along with them willingly.
