EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Smith and Will find the matter-transfer unit that was used by the Taurons to travel from planet to planet via a master beam. It is in bad disrepair but still seems to be working. Will, although forbidden by his father to tinker with it, cannot resist going back again later with the Robot whom he instructs to send him to earth and recall him for hours later. The operation is successful. Will materializes in a little village in Vermont but he cannot get help for his family as he planned, because no one believes his story or will let him call Alpha Control.
