Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Lunar astronauts explore strange ice caves on the moon and end up becoming hosts for a bizarre, deadly parasitic fungus. Unaware of their contamination, the explorers return to their space station. One of them dies and a biochemist investigates. The ship's physician is the next to suffer. He and the surviving astronaut attempt to convince the ship's captain to radio in a warning to Earth, but the commander refuses. The two then try to contact Earth on their own, but the communication officer, who loves the captain, stops them, leaving the twosome to figure out another way to save their planet from catastrophe.
