The Deadly Games of Gamma 6
EPISODE SYNOPSIS: An alien trainer, Myko, with his troupe of gladiator fighters arrives for their yearly display of games which are televised throughout the galaxy. Myko tries to persuade Professor Robinson to enter one of the contests. John refuses, but Dr. Smith, hearing that vast riches are paid to the victor, volunteers to fight a little alien only half his size. Myko agrees but doesn’t tell Smith that his half-pint opponent can make himself invisible, or that the military leaders of the galaxy are watching the games, planning to invade any planet whose representatives appear to be cowardly. Sadly, Dr. Smith loses the fight to the little alien. So, in order to save Earth from invasion, John challenges Myko to a game of Cosmic Russian Roulette.
