The USS Pioneer discovers a new planet. Captain Kelsoe, Zimmer and Braxis investigate the planet, before Kelsoe deems it safe and allows the crew to have shore leave. Burt, Craig and Tracy go camping. A storm brews up and they head into a cave for shelter. Inside the cave Burt and Craig start to be controlled by some strange presence. They start calling themselves “Adam” and calling Tracy “Eve”. Kelsoe and the rest are visited by the residents of the planet, who tell them to leave their space immediately.
