The Moon drifts through a dense cluster of stars, though it escapes being drawn in by their gravity. But it doesn’t escape the approach of several conical objects which appear to be on a direct heading for Moonbase Alpha. Two Eagles are launched, and Koenig and Dr. Russell perform a spacewalk to retrieve one of the coffin-like objects. The projectile contains a young humanoid male in suspended animation, who, when revived, asks Koenig to save his people. The commander, however, isn’t so sure – Alpha’s life support capacity is already stretched to its limits. But if Koenig doesn’t act, his visitor says that the gravity of the stellar cluster will tear the remaining pods apart. Koenig stuns his own staff by declining the mission of mercy, but soon it becomes apparent that his visitor won’t take no for an answer.
