Summary
  • The planet Miran had sent a spaceship to rendezvous with the enormous vessel that was approaching their star system. The vessel's design was odd--a multitude of separate globular habitats in a framework--and most of the alien team that entered one of the habitats were slaughtered by savage creatures called "humans."
  • One alien had barely managed to escape to another habitat where the humans were more friendly, if rather technologically backward. But he needed to get back to his spaceship, and he would need one human's help to do that
Summary
Sending a spaceship to rendezvous with an enormous vessel made up of a series of globular habitats approaching its star system, the aliens find a savage race calling themselves "humans" who promptly slaughter the exploration team, except for a single survivor who escapes to another habitat, where he finds more friendly humans whose help he requires to get back to his own ship
