EPISODE 4
German Title: Protonen-Sturm
Script: John Lucarotti
Director: Wolfgang Storch

Plot: With Adam and Shem captured, Fulvia and Octavia, with Liz and Rudi still on board their ship, arrange to pick up the Medusan men. En route however a storm breaks, damaging the drive system of Nemesis. Octavia is forced to take the ship into orbit to affect repairs. Unable to arrange a swap, Octavia takes the ship back to Medusa with Rudi and Liz now hostages. The earth people are separated on Medusa: Rudi to the men's menial quarters and Liz to a life of luxury. With a proton storm affecting communication the Maidens try to arrange the swap of the hostages. Although the storm makes it dangerous to travel to Earth, Fulvia - desperate to see Adam - attempts to take the Nemesis back to Earth.

Where? En route to Medusa, so mostly set on board the bridge of the Nemesis
Who? Fulvia, Octavia and their co-pilot space lady, er, Andrea with everyone else appearing largely on monitor screens
Kinky? The self-moving Medusan chess pieces look a little like they might have variable speed settings but that’s maybe stretching things.

Notes: More stilted exposition as the episode sets up the format for the ‘other half’ of the show. But, hey, we finally get to see Medusa again. I cannot imagine John Lucarotti, writer of literate Doctor Who classics like Marco Polo, The Aztecs and The Massacre, sitting down to type this one up!
