Summary:

Where was Earth? This was not their galaxy. A stranger sun lit the sky with orange rays. In their long cold sleep, the seven space travelers had left their own universe behind and now their monitor told them that on the planet revolving below them, someone was signalling for help. By space law, they must descend, explore and render assistance. But they would carry weapons. For who could tell what being called to them--or why. All they knew was that it was Alien.
