This episode is a sequel to the episode "The Camp". Years ago, the Tsal-Khan race arrived on Earth to become friends with humans, but the distrusting nature of the Earthlings led to a war between the two races. Dlavan (René Auberjonois) and his family are Tsal-Khan, offspring of the handful of aliens who remained on Earth after a bitter war of conquest with the human race. Today, they live on a tightly guarded farm where they must grow all their own food, since their forebears poisoned all the plants during the war with humankind. Most of the aliens believe that the human race was wiped out in the war, but there is a group of humans in the woods near the farm. This group, led by Rebecca (Caroline Goodall), escaped from the alien's robot-run camps. The group also includes David (Joseph Kell), Ruth (Jane Sowerby) and the mute, orphaned child Tali (Jessica Harmon). They are desperately hungry and have seen their children die from eating poisoned fruit. So, when they spot Dlavan's grandson Ma'al, wandering in the woods, they follow him home to the farm. After they see the well-fed aliens, Rebecca leads the group to raid the farm for food. At first, Tali figures out how to get around the farm's deadly defensive measures. But, things escalate and individuals are hurt or killed on both sides. When Rebecca captures an alien weapon and Tali is seriously injured, the scene is set for the final showdown, a battle that could destroy both groups.


Although this is a sequel, on some respects, it does seem to contradict the original story, most notably in the depiction of the alien race who in the original were described as being gigantic, with four arms. Perhaps however that description was itself a myth, especially given that those within the camp were mistaken in several of their other beliefs about their world.
