Synopsis
Eight men choose exile aboard a rocket rather than face trial for plotting to begin another war. They land on a planet rich with gold and plan to buy up industries when they return to Earth at some point. They must flee, however, when another planet appears on a collusion course. They argue for a day where they should travel and then use their instruments to pick a planet that has even more gold than the one they just left. Unfortunately, once they set the rocket down they realize that they've landed on the planet that is going to collide with the one they just left.
