The Master has stolen a weapon that will give him ultimate control of the universe and of time itself. The Daleks are invading Earth. The Cybermen are terrorizing the space lanes. And The Sontarans and Rutans are battling to see who wins the galaxy.

Note:  Same ISBN as first edition. Strangely, this later edition omits character details of the Sixth Doctor which were present in the first edition — presumably due to either a copyright dispute with the BBC or use-of-likeness issue with Colin Baker himself. (Which would also explain why none of the published RPG modules feature the Sixth Doctor.)

Cover blurb:
Same as 1st edition.
