The Doctor and K9 arrive on a small barnacled moon long after the planet Deneb-7 has ceased to exist. The Doctor goes to rest while the TARDIS and K9 recalibrate themselves following a magnetic storm, but a slightly erratic K9 goes off exploring. The TARDIS' arrival has awoken robot minions beneath the surface, who await the Pendant Bearer's return, so that the "formalities" of colonisation of Deneb-7 can be completed. However, having destroyed the planet, it will take some four thousand million years for a new planet to reform. The robot minions return belowground to wait. K9 returns to the TARDIS before the Doctor awakes.
- Affected by the magnetic storm, K9 calls the Doctor a varlet.
- The moon of Deneb-7 is actually a spaceship.
- It takes four thousand million years for a dust-cloud to co-alesce into a planet.
