Previously, the crew spent time exploring the dome city of the aliens, Jet Morgan and his crew finally meet the aliens face to face. Lenny gets spooked and runs.
Today, after the initial shock is over, the crew is given a place to get some much needed rest. Their alien host shares more secrets. They talk about time travel, the history of this alien civilization, and their immediate plan to inhabit Venus.
Can the aliens get them back to moon? Sure, but maybe not exactly the same time they blasted off. They could be off by a thousand years, give or take a little bit. Should they stay here, go with the aliens to Venus, or try to go back to their own time?
Jet relates the logistical needs for them to blast off in there own ship, and the aliens help them get outfitted with supplies, fuel, even in setting the ship upright, and ready for takeoff. .
All systems check out. Time for lift off, then suddenly the rocket is surrounded by the race of primitive men that are supposed to be the grandfathers of our own human race. Now what? Don’t you just love how the radio is useless, just when important advice is needed from the aliens?
The alien timetravellers return, with a warning about human behavior. Compared to the barbaric behavior of the men on the planet at this time, hase the human race evolved out of their primitive state by the 20th century? The aliens begin to have second thoughts about helping Jet Morgan and his crew. Will they be convinced that the crew, and mankind in general, is worthy of helping?
PS: I had to check twice, this episode does run a little longer than the rest.
