In reality, however, the trio are being influenced by the Aliens to insert atomic fuel into the nuclear waste core.

"You don't know Psychons like we do. Their power is insidious."

A Croton spaceship arrives on Alpha and is revealed to contain the Psychon philosopher Dorzak imprisoned in stasis. His captor, Sahala, is ferrying him to exile on Thesalena, claiming that he incited the Norvahn people to violence, but Maya refuses to believe her story as she knows Dorzak as a man of peace. Sahala tells how Dorzak used his mind power on her colleagues, Clea and Yesta, leaving Clea dead and Yesta badly injured, but when Yesta recovers she is still under Dorzak's influence and accuses Sahala of Clea's murder. On this evidence, Verdeschi allows Maya to free Dorzak from stasis and the real murderer is on the loose in Alpha...
