Synopsis:
Zarz landed the ship after humans passed out, but now the hypatomic engines rupture. Zarz orders "Every Earthman must be outside before any of us leave the ship!" But the rescuers freak at the aliens, and soldiers open fire as the ship burns. No way out but to link up "our barrier of mind-force!" Outside, Captain Johner revives and opens the air lock as the commander orders, "Hold your fire!" Zarz says, "Fear of the unknown can be deadly to any civilization [but]... it looks like a good beginning!"
