Summary Edit

An artificial planet has been destroying spacecraft and poses a potential threat to Earth's solar system, underdefended after two centuries of peace with the Daleks. Planetary representatives meet with the Dalek Emperor, who proposes that the Daleks be rearmed so they can defeat the rouge planet. The represenative named Sovard urges them not to create a new danger to stop another danger, but he is outvoted.

Jay and Gregg are among the humans who rearm the Daleks from the space vault orbiting Skaro where the Dalek weaponry has been stored. They accompany the Emperor in his ship as the Dalek fleet encounters the planet. The Daleks study the planet, find a weakness, and destroy it. Then the Emperor tells Jay and Gregg to warn Earth and the other planets that they will be conquered by the rearmed Daleks.
