Synopsis
Marsh urges his men to hurry up evacuating the moon dome as the next time the moon-men attack it may be too late. Loomis disagrees and says they should fight. Suddenly an attack starts and the dome is damaged leaking out life sustaining oxygen. While the repairs are taking place Loomis sneaks out with a rifle. Loomis is ambushed by the moon-men but a warning shot by Marsh, who has followed, scares them off. They are then pursued and just get back to the dome in time. A rocket arrives for the evacuees and leaves behind the moon-men who are men and women that can live without oxygen.
