Synopsis
Torch and Toro encounter alien bat people who explain that vampires are their criminals that they exiled to Earth long ago when there was no intelligent life. A scout ship having informed them that there is now an intelligent species on the planet being preyed on by the vampire aliens, the bat people are now rounding up vampires to deposit on some other planet without an intelligent species since they do not believe in killing.
