Safron and Celeste Wilde are a couple who are trying to make a new life for themselves on the new colony on Planet Orkol. When they get there they find that things aren't as they expected. Ramshackle robots and infertile land are all that is around on Orkol, until they learn of the radioactive material being mined. Safron soon gets a job working in the lab for Haldane, the executive of the mining company. He works under Hawkins who has perfected a weapon of mass destruction and plans to use it. Safron can't do anything about this until one day he is exposed to radiation from a new sample of ore that mutates him into a huge powerful lifeform. His first impulse is to destroy the lab and the evil Haldane and Hawkins then find his wife and escape back to earth where he might find a way to get his old body back.
