Synopsis for Tommy Tomorrow: "The Poison Planet"
Because of dangerous plant life on the planetoid Arkar, the Planeteers are sent to fit it out with rocket tubes and fly it out of the Solar System. The population is to be evacuated to Jupiter. There is stalling and protesting from the population, and one ambitious attempt is made to eradicate the dangerous plant life, but it fails, and soon the giant rockets are installed, and the Akaris are embarked onto spaceships. But the project's commander, Col. Tomorrow, arranges to have himself "forced" to fly the rocketing planetoid close to the Sun, which has the effect of killing all of the dangerous plant life but leaving the planetoid otherwise habitable. Tomorrow then resumes command and restores Akar to its former orbit, and returns all of the evacuees to its surface, assuring the Akarians that the Government will soon change its ruling about launching their homeworld out of the Solar System.
