Synopsis:
Gaylord Du Bois pays homage to J .R .R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Alien Tolking space crew thought it was hidden here; they crash and die: the Kingstone, a legendary gem, gives its owners strange powers! Ancient civilizations rose and fell! Just form a wish. Bear steals to get it, but dies. Craig gets it, learns its power, is dubious, but rational. The furries are superstitious, and fear it as evil. Tam uses it, to her sorrow. Craig tosses it, and it burns up. June wonders: it might have helped. Craig says it wasn't trustworthy. They are lost in space aboard Space Station One.
