EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Out in space, Smith tries to change course from Alpha Centauri to Earth. The first time, he jettisons the reserve fuel by mistake; next, he heads the ship straight into the sun. Don only just gets it out of the gravitational pull in time, and they are fortunately able to replenish their fuel supply from a string of refueling barges that John remembers have been placed not too far from their path. But a charming Green Space Lorelei, who feeds upon atomic fuel, hypnotizes Smith out of the spaceship in the hope of getting fuel from him. Don goes out and rescues Smith, but now it is too late to head for Earth; they are speeding rapidly out of the galaxy and are once more lost in space.
