|'End of Eternity'
by Johnny Byrne
Moonbase Alpha discovers a passing asteroid that appears to have an internal atmosphere. Commander Koenig, Professor Bergman and Baxter investigate, using explosives to blast their way into the chamber within. But the explosion critically injures the sole occupant of the chamber, a tall humanoid man held in stasis. Koenig and the others return to Alpha with the alien, but Doctor Russell believes that he cannot be saved; however, the man then miraculously recovers from his injuries and introduces himself as Balor, a Progron scientist who has achieved immortality. Koenig discovers that Balor is also a dangerous psychopath who enjoys inflicting fear and pain, and who was imprisoned by his people for his crimes. Balor asks the commander to allow him to terrorise the base’s personnel for his eternal amusement, as he will keep alive forever with his powers of regeneration. Koenig refuses, and so Balor begins an unstoppable rampage of carnage and destruction throughout Alpha...
