A Cyber-Scout craft was sent on a mission to travel through a cosmic cloud that appeared the same time an ape had arrived, to find the ape's home planet and convert their species. The craft came through the cloud and was fired at by missiles by the Lizard Kings on Mondas, in an era before Mondas broke away from Earth. The missiles missed the Cyber-Scout craft, but the recoil injured the pilot and damaged its voicebox. Noticing the Cyberman's technology was not unlike their own, the Lizard Kings decided to study the Cyber-Scout through vivisection and sent an ape-servant into the cloud to its world. The ape-servant inside the craft was the same ape that inspired the Cybermen to send the Cyber-Scout through the cosmic cloud in Mondas' future. (COMIC: The Prodigal Returns)
