Dr. Larry Chambers helped build the colony on Janus Five. He and fellow scientist Amanda Harper run computer simulations that show the planet's star will flash over in a matter of days, emitting waves of deadly radiation, so Dr. Chambers urges evacuation.

This is not a popular recommendation, especially among the colony's leaders who include council chairman Franklin Murdock, security head Montgomery Bennett (ALAN SCARFE) and Amanda's father, Ian Harper (KEN POGUE). They point out that Chambers has been wrong before - the colony had to be moved at great cost after he warned of deadly volcanic activity - and suggest that his judgment has been clouded by the death of his wife Elise.

When that doesn't stop Chambers, Murdock and Bennett discredit him by falsely accusing him of being one of the aliens who originally inhabited the planet, suggesting that the evacuation plan is a plot to reclaim the planet for his people. Imprisoned and threatened with death, Chamber's only hope is that Amanda will uncover the truth in time to save him and the colony.
