Ron's father is dismayed when he learns that his son wants to secure at a job at the Rocket-Port, not just to service rockets, but to fly them. He cautions his son that pilots must retire at age 26, but while they talk, Ron's dad sights a space ship that is not of earthly origin. Together they go to the landing sight, armed with a blaster. When a weird alien being alights from the ship, they kill it and report to the authorities, and mention that the alien's ship could be used to further the Earth's own space travel program.
