If this site used halves, I'd give it a 7 1/2, mostly for what the bad guys turn out to be. The main story itself is very interesting and quite well constructed. Doctor 6 and his new companion Mathew Sharpe are on their way to return Mathew to his proper place in time, but get diverted by a distress call. But wait, there is a little preview bit before hand about an old professor on a colony planet who runs across an artifact that does something to her. How does it relate? We don't find out for a very long time, but when we do, it fits seemlessly into place. The story is another of the kind in which some project, in this case an interplanetary hotel built from a derelict spaceship, gets hijacked by persons unknown for reasons unknown, and now everyone is both in danger and a suspect. The script manages to hold onto its surprises, which are many and startling, until late. The one problem area for me is that the evil race behind it all have a rather daft motivation. If it were not for that, this story would rate much higher with me.
