Predator Admiral Ackbar, another disco werewolf, and a ménage-à-granddad
Responding to a distress call, The Doctor and companion Sarah Jane Smith arrive on the planet of Zeta Minor, where a team of scientists under the supervision of Professor Sorenson has been mining for antimatter crystals as an alternative and near-limitless source of energy.
