Storyline

When an alien spaceship crashes against an Earth satellite, John, Liz and Mike go to investigate. As they enter into repairing the satellite, two of the spaceship's occupants, Yagon and Cantor, reach Earth, checking into Bruce Forbes' now popular haunted hotel in search of a mineral that robs telepaths of their powers. In checking the odd pair in, Andrew loses his Tomorrow powers, rendering him incapable of entertaining hotel guests with spectral apparitions; but, with his powers returned by morning, Andrew sets off to see what these two out-of-place strangers are up to.
