On an Earth colony deep in space, Dr. Larry Chambers has been studying their new sun. His simulation model however suggests that a solar flare of catastrophic proportions will destroy the colony within a few days. The problem is that he can't get anyone to believe him as the result of an incorrect prediction he made five years ago that the colony would be destroyed from volcanic eruptions. The head of the colony, Franklin Murdoch, wants to avoid any possibility that some of the colonists might evacuate and so arranges for Chambers to be falsely identified as one of the alien race they had pushed out when establishing the colony 20 years ago. It leads to tragedy for all of the colonists.
