The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams arrive in the TARDIS in the belly of a missile packed with explosives. The missile's automatic defence computer identifies itself and detects the intruders are not Nabrili. The Doctor realises the missile is on its way to its neighbours, the Jells, with whom the Nabrili have pointless disputes and there is only about six and a half minutes to impact (943.8 Haldecs).
The Doctor busies his team. Amy is sent to flood the explosives with water from the TARDIS while Rory assists the Doctor in modifying the computer. With an electronic conscience fitted, the computer realises that when the missile hits Jelledge, billions of people will die and agrees to the Doctor's help to stop it. On Jelledge they can only watch as the huge missile heads closer, believing the end to have arrived.
The missile suddenly explodes in the sky, spelling out in fireworks the local language for "give peace a chance". Having removed the computer from the missile and made it into a mobile unit, it is left safely on the planet Jelledge, programmed with the peace agreement suggested by the Doctor but credited as the Nabrili's idea!

- Although standing outside the TARDIS, the Doctor has to translate the wording of the firework letters from the local language for Amy and Rory — at odds with the TARDIS's ability to translate for its regular occupants.
