by Terry Nation
On the jungle planet Kembel, Space Security Service Agent Marc Cory is investigating sightings of a Dalek spaceship. He discovers that the Daleks have established a base on the planet, but before he can act his two companions, Jeff Garvey and Gordon Lowery, both become victims of the poisonous Varga plants, which have been brought to the planet by the Daleks from their native homeworld, Skaro; Marc has no choice but to kill his friends before they become Varga plants themselves. Marc overhears the Daleks meeting with representatives of the six outer galaxies, plotting to overthrow the solar system. He records a warning message and prepares to send it into orbit with a rocket launcher, but before he can do so, he is exterminated by the Daleks, and the message lies forgotten.
