TARDIS lands on the barren planet Xeros which has been made into
a space museum by the warlike Moroks, as a monument to their galactic
conquests. Among the samples of their historical conquests are familiar
aliens like the Daleks, and the Doctor and his friends - who have
become invisible - see their own replicas in the museum. They realize
that the TARDIS has jumped across a time track and to avoid ending up
as exhibits they must change the possible future. They learn of a
revolution planned against the warlike Morok invaders and the Doctor helps
the Xeron rebels to victory.
