Katarina, the Trojan girl, is gone; she sacrificed herself to save the space-travellers when they escaped from the dismal penal-colony planet Desperus. Now Bret the space-security agent who had become their ally against the Daleks, is gone too—shot down as a traitor by Sara Kingdom, acting on the orders of the Solar System's 'guardian' the ambitious Mavic Chen.

The Doctor's desperate journey back to earth in a captured space-ship, intended to bring warning of the coming of the Daleks, has proved all in vain.
