Stephen is found by his classmates, and taken back to the school. Douglas has willingly gone with the kidnappers to an old deserted windmill, and when one of the teachers, Dr. Laird takes some spare clothes to him, Stephen and Paul, one of the schoolboys, hide in the back of his car. But Dr. Laird captures them, and is about to shoot them when Stephen activates his jaunting belt, taking Paul and Douglas back to the Lab with him. Tim re-educates the two boys, showing them how terrible war actually is, and they decide to help. Dressed in Lee Wan's space suit, John drifts up to the space-station, and sees General McLelland at the dead man's switch. Douglas, Stephen and Lee Wan jaunt into the space-station, but in the confrontation, the General lets go of the handle. They are unable to stop the commencement of the launch countdown, but Douglas throws his bagpipes into the artificial gravity machinery that makes the living quarters rotate, causing the whole station to spin. The missiles fire harmlessly into the sun.
