It marked the introduction of a new companion, Decky, being the third, in DWA's seven-year history, to introduce a new companion specifically for DWA comics.
The Doctor has tracked a signal to a closed off children's playground in a park. A warden tells him to go away before vanishing. Inside the grounds, the Doctor finds a crashed spacecraft and monstrous survivor — that also vanishes. As the Doctor attempts to stop an explosion that will rip the planet apart, a giant snake appears. With a flick of the sonic screwdriver, the Doctor disables the creature's "shape-shifting or invisibility nonsense". The creature introduces himself as Decky Flamboon and is grateful that the Doctor sorted out the scrambled tech damaged in the crash. Decky was on a survey mission when his ship was hit by a Trutorian missile meteorite. He planned to take the missile off the planet before it explodes. The explosion would kill him, so the Doctor manages to send the missile on a one-way trip where it will safely explode in the Nebulae Void of Nothing. Without a ship or knowing the coordinates, Decky is left without a means to get back home to Sirus but the Doctor offers Decky a lift.
- The Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to detect the crashed alien craft and the meteorite missile.
- Decky Flamboon was a design-a-companion competition winner submitted by reader Mitchell Collett.
