A man dreams that he is a judge of a trial during the Spanish Inquisition, which no one expects.

Synopsis
The first man to land on the moon encounters creatures that lack the ability to build space ships but have perfected a will-sapping gas that they wish to administer into Earth's atmosphere in order to enslave the population into building enough space ships to transport their people to Earth.
