The year is 2056. From the Fern Spacelab orbiting above the Fusion Energy Research Network in California, OMEGA has mounted a devastating attack.

  • This story takes place in the mid-21st Century and at the time it was published it was assumed that it featured the K-9 model that was featured in K-9 and Company and The Five Doctors. However, the events of the 2006 episode School Reunion, in which that version of K-9 was destroyed, suggest that the version of K-9 encountered by the Doctor is actually K-9 Mark IV and the model featured in The Sarah Jane Adventures although as far as the Sixth Doctor is concerned, it's the same one he gave Sarah Jane initially. (This assumes that Mark IV is not destroyed in a yet-to-be-chronicled SJA or Doctor Who episode.)
  • The Doctor is travelling without a companion, likely placing this story as occurring in the interval between DW: The Ultimate Foe (after which he presumably returned Melanie Bush to her proper timeline) and PDA: Business Unusual in which the Doctor properly meets Melanie.
