On earth's runaway moon, two aliens in suspended animation are found in totally walled in and brought back to Moonbase Alpha - where they turn out to be Archanons, aliens from another planet who have made it (as a race) their mission to spread peace through the entire universe. But while one of the aliens, Etrec (Michael Gallagher), is still a boy who likes nothing more than playing rugby with his newfound moonbase friend Alan (Nick Tate), the othger one, Pasc (John Standing), soon shows psychotic traits, and moonbase Dr Russell (Barbara Bain) soon finds out he has what's called on his planet "The Killing", pretty much a viral urge to kill, a virus that is passed on from father to son - which is also why the two of them were walled in, because without "The Killing", Archanons are unable to kill.

Eventually, other Archanons come to pick the two of them up, but while Etrec, in whom the virus is still dormant, is willing to give in to his fate, Pasc takes Dr Russell hostage and wants to steal an Eagle to make an escape. Somehow though, Dr Russell talks sense into him, and in the end, Pasc kills himself, just so Dr Russell has enough blood to produce an antiserum and cure Etrec.

Space 1999 regulars Martin Landau and Catherine Schell only make a couple of cameo appearances in this one and are said to be away on a mission ...

 

Like pretty much all episodes of Space 1999 (especially the second season), this one is pretty silly, and as it's low on action and miniature effects and high on cory philosophy, this is one of the less entertaining episodes of the series.
