Commander Koenig finally convinces Dr. Helena Russell and the shape-shifting science officer Maya that their supposed rescuers from earth are really hostile aliens. The trio discovers that the creatures live on energy and need a nuclear explosion on Moonbase Alpha to feed their starving bodies. The aliens hypnotize three crew members into thinking they are back on earth, performing seemingly benign activities, when what they're really doing is setting up the means for that nuclear explosion.
