VOM 5. PLANETEN
Plague From Space

The seemingly lost starship "Perikles"
suddenly reappears above New York, with just one member
of the crew having survived the trip to Jupiter.
Soon after landing, an alien epedemy threatens to kill
all human beings on earth.
As a last resort, scientists reenter the starship that
has rested abandoned since its surprise landing and
detect a couple of Jovians hidden in a secret department,
all pressurised and equipped to keep them alive.
Turns out the Jovians have a slightly different form
of society and mindset compared to man.
So in the end its not only a matter of life and death
but also a moral issue: Can you really blame an alien
race with different values, different morale if they
treat us humans in a way we might find inacceptable?
