By telepathically manipulating the newest crewmember Cally (Jan Chappell) into doing minor sabotage, Blake's (Gareth Thomas) spaceship The Liberator is lured into an enormous spider's web in outer space. & when the ship is unable to break free of the web, Blake decides to go down onto the planet it emanates from.

Once there, he meets 2 races, constantly fighting another, the monstrous mutants called Decimas & a couple of Aryan humanoid genetic engineers (Ania Marson, Miles Fothergill). It does seem the two humanoids have lured him here because they need some energy cells to restroe their laboratory to full power, which will also enable them to destroy the web that holds the Liberator.

At first that all seems pretty reasonable since the Liberator has enough power cells to spare one or two, but when Blake learns the humanoids also want the cells to commit genocide on the Decimas, he refuses, though he learns that the Decimas are only creations of the genetic engineers, who in turn are only creations of Saymon (Richard Beale), a totally degenerate caricature of a lifeform, who, only able to survive inside a jar that sustains his ligfe functions if only just, telepathically controls the engineers to make him an immortal body.

Blake now of course refuses to hand over the power cells should Saymon not accept aome conditions, but seems to have already lost the gamble because Avon (Paul Darrow) has already been telepored down to the planet's surface with the cells, & he & Blake are forced to hand them over at gunpoint. But the Decimas have already started a largescale revolt just in time, & kill of the humanoids & Saymon, while Blake & Avon have just enough time to destroy the web that holds their wship before being beamed aboard again.

Sally Knyvette, Michael Keating & David Jackson play their usual roles as Jenna, Vila & Gan, respectively, little man actor Deep Roy is one of the Decimas.

 

Though the story is not at all without interest, the storytelling comes across rather heavyhandedly, & gives away way too much way too soon - a first glimpse of the Decimas & the engineers tells you exactly who wants to commit genocide on whom. And the finale with the Decimas starting their revolt just when they are about to be wiped out is rather disappointing as well. The shrimpled frail bodyof Saym on in a jar - despite not being totally convincing - is a nice twist though.
