With Adam and Shem captured, Earth and Medusa prepare to exchange prisoners. As arrangements are made, another signal is found in deep space, originating from somewhere other than Medusa; the Medusans suddenly accelerate the timetable for the prisoner exchange. When the signal is played back on Earth, it makes Shem violently ill, and Professor Evans is only able to get Fulvia to tell him that this is a matter between Medusa and its ancient enemy from another galaxy.
