The Space Museum:
The TARDIS has jumped a time track, landing on the planet Xeros where the Doctor and his companions discover the unsettling sight of their own future selves — displayed as exhibits in the Morok museum. The exhibits testify to the galactic conquests of the Morok invaders who now rule the planet. When time shifts back to normal, the Doctor and his companions embark on a campaign to avert their fate, with Vicki helping the native Xerons to obtain arms with which to launch a revolution against the Moroks. But will this be enough to secure the time travllers’ existence?
