The Earth-bound ship reaches home, but a strange pink cloud-belt cuts off all communication. At Earth Space Control, the staff panics: anyone who enters the cloud of psycho-gas, a backfired defense experiment, will be rendered helpless. The ship tries to land and the humans pass out. Zarz contacts Space Control, who freak to see an alien. Zarz calmly explains he can pilot with a talk-down - and by a miracle, lands safely.
