Plot Summary

When the spaceship Vertigo stops to explore a previously unknown planet, the crew finds an unrecognized dollop of protoplasm and takes it aboard ship to return it to earth for analysis.

The crew is gobbled up one after another until the two surviving crewmembers come up with a plan. Written by Jim Beaver
