In orbit of the library world of Biblios, the Vromyx and Garynths are engaged in a battle to determine the fate of the planet. Each species is jealously guarding the secrets of legendary super-weapons from the other. Neither side will believe the library's caretakers that there are no such secrets to be found inside. The Doctor must thus think quickly of a way to bring peaceful resolution to the dispute. He finds an empty warehouse on the library's grounds, and rigs it with explosives. Then he calls up to the commanders of both sides and tells them that's where the records are housed. As the fleets move closer, the Doctor destroys the warehouse. With nothing left to fight over, the two fleets end their battle and go home.

A continuation of the story "Star Death", set 20 years after the events of that prequel.
This is the earliest known use of the term "Time War" in Doctor Who fiction. It ends ambiguously enough that one could easily include this story into one's understanding of the TIme War described in Russell T. Davies' version of Doctor Who.
