The Homozillians are covertly planning to invade and plunder the planet of Kestraleve by turning its people against alien outsiders and isolating itself.
The Doctor is curious as to why the planet Kestraleve is no longer the welcoming place it used to be. Cut off from other worlds and hostile to all alien visitors, Decky Flamboon adopts a disguise and shape-shifts into a local to blend in when they arrive at an empty marketplace. Without trading, the locals can't make enough money for basics like food. But their arrival is seen and soon the Doctor and Decky are being carted away by their leader, who reveals their true identities. Puzzled as to how they were spotted, the clue appears to be in the eyepiece that the leader is wearing — the Doctor recognises it as a Homozillian eyedrop able to detect alien life forms and capable of shrinking to fit its wearer. Suspicious as to why a Kestraleven is using alien technology, the Doctor rightly guesses that the leader is, in fact, a Homozillian invader! Before the Doctor and Decky are blasted into the sun, the Doctor sonics the eyedrop with his sonic screwdriver and increases its field. Once enlarged, the people can see that their "guards" are actually Homozillian forces — influencing and controlling them for their own personal gain. Their plan exposed, the Kestralevens turn on the Homozillians and drive them away. Addressing the crowd, the Doctor reminds them that some aliens are friendly and encourages them to go out there and meet them.
