As the Tardis made it’s way toward their destination on Procyon Zeta, Ashilon noticed a beeping sound that she realized was coming from the device that Old Man had given her. She took the device apart to investigate it, but reassembled it when it stopped working. This restored the device to normal and it began beeping again.
The Tardis informed Ashilon that there was a message for her. The message was from the Timekeeper, and he informed them that the Daleks had begun to invade the planet in order to find a Timelord scientist named Maslaton (who specialized in decoding Dalek messages).
The Tardis landed and said ‘Oops…. Close enough’ because it’s Chameleon Circuit failed to make a perfect disguise. It disguised itself like the coral buildings nearby, but it got the color wrong. The inhabitants of the village had all noticed the strange blue coral building and started staring at it. The team researched the creatures (called Tcharnaia) in the Tardis database before walking out to greet them.
Ashilon stepped out first and informed the Tcharnaia that they had come in peace… just in time to realize that a soldier was standing right next to her and guarding the door with a Staser. More soldiers were called to help the first one, and the team was ordered to drop all weapons. One of those soldiers then went and gathered an elder, and another asked Ashilon how she made the coral on her house blue. The elder asked them how they had escaped the Timelord facility and the team decided to make up a story about arriving to investigate a distress signal. Ashilon held out Old Man’s communicator as a fake signal device, and the elder swiped it and took it apart. Another approached them and told them about the fate of the Timelord facility. The team learned that it was very likely that a group of Timelords had escaped the Dalek attack in a submarine and made it into the shelter of one of the nearby caves.
After they had learned this, they were reintroduced to Amelia. She informed them that she was not happy with the fact that she had been stranded on an alien planet after the team had promised to get her to safety. The team agreed to take her home if she would help them locate Maslaton, and she decided to go along regardless to make sure they did not leave her behind again. They saw a wanted poster of Jack the Traveler which accused him of many crimes, which was noticed on the way to arrange for transport. The Tcharnaia noticed that Ashilon was not armored, and so they made her some coral armor.
The team was assigned five guards and pointed in the direction of the marshes. About 2/3 of the way through their journey, the team noticed a Dalek ship overhead. Two Daleks then flew in from overhead; one landing in the water and getting stuck, and the other landing on solid ground. The Tcharnaia distracted the Daleks long enough for the team to escape (and none survive), and they made it to the caves. They found the right cave and spoke with Maslaton, arriving at the decision to return to the Tcharnaia village in order to escape.
They worked with the Timelords to defeat the Dalek that had pursued them through the marshes and quickly made their way back to the village. The village was under attack, and so the other Timelords ran in to join the fight on the ground while the Tcharnaia defended the skies. The team snuck around behind the buildings and made it to a hanger. They come across a young Tcharnaia who had rebuilt the communication device and coated it in coral, and they took off in Tcharnaia ships to help defend the village.
They successfully destroyed the Daleks and landed next to the Tardis. Ashilon noticed a small, green pin shaped like a question mark which had been in her pocket. They entered the Tardis along with Amelia, the Tcharnaia, and Maslaton. They called for a pickup for Maslaton, and he was safely returned to Gallifrey. They decided to keep the Tcharnaia around and Amelia decided that she would keep an eye on it in order to keep it from tearing everything apart. Amelia forced them to decide whether she would be returned home or not, and they tell her that they might need her to help (this is a stall tactic). The team then took off for Skaro to continue their mission.
