Synopsis:
A strange black disc appears in the sky and stabs a beam directly through the sun; Rom investigates and finds it has been created by Dire Wraith sorcerers; Rom drives off the Wraiths but the damage has already been done as a large black spot is slowly spreading across the sun; Rom learns from Cindy, a little girl whose mind has been touched by a dying Wraith, that the aliens are using the black beam as a conduit with which they are attracting their own world to merge with earth; Gyrich claims that the only man capable of duplicating Rom's neutralizer and halting Wraith-World refuses to help.
