Craig and June Robinson, with their teenage children Tim and Tam, are the crew of Earth’s first Space Station One. They intercept a distress call from the asteroid Orious, and Tim and Tam take one of the two spacemobiles to see if they can help. The advanced humanoids inform them that Gorko, an alien criminal, is threatening to turn their planet into ice from his asteroid Karnos. The two teens take two scientists to Gorko’s asteroid and put him and his raiders in the deep freeze using the criminal’s own weather controls. The Robinson’s get headphone translators which can interpret alien languages.
