The X-34 Space Exploration Team lands on an uncharted planet, only to find it is inhabited by a fire-breathing dragon. To make matters worse, a gigantic meteor is on a collision course with the planet, and their ship is damaged beyond timely repair.

The crew argues over whether or not to kill the dragon, with the captain ultimately deciding against killing it. Right as the meteor is about to hit the planet, the dragon knocks it away, saving the crew.
