Ogrons are impersonating Humans and Draconians, trying to start a war between the two galactic superpowers. The 3rd Doctor and Jo (naturally) find themselves caught in the middle. The Doctor believes another power is behind the Ogron activities. Note to MPT viewers - when this story last aired 2 ½ years ago, a scheduling error caused them to cut away at about the 1 hour, 58 minute mark and leave it unfinished. Based on the schedule, Frontier should air complete this time. But if anyone working at MPT is watching - give the story 2 ½ hours, not 2 hours. Sorry - next week's movie version of Planet of the Daleks will be the usual version (episode 3 missing, episodes 2+4 edited to cover up episode 3'sm absence).
