Deep-space exploration ship HUMBOLDT arrives on the Earth-like planet Alpha 202-D to make final preparations for colonization. The ship lands near the spot where TOMAHAWK, the first space ship to visit the planet, crashed 10 years earlier with the loss of all hands. As the crew begins its work, they discover evidence that one of the TOMAHAWK's crewmembers may be alive. Soon after, the crew begins behaving differently. They shirk their responsibilities. They begin having nightmares. They run away from the ship. As the mission falls apart, the one crewmember not affected must find out what's behind the problems before the crew, and possibly, the soon-to-arrive colonists, suffer a dire fate.
