Synopsis: In the remarkable region of space known as the Medusa Cascade, star whales roam free. The Doctor recognizes these gentle beasts as one of the most majestic lifeforms in the universe, a spaceborne cetacean that migrates through the space between the stars. He also recognizes the eggs of these endangered wonders as utterly priceless. So when a platoon of Judoon locks down a Hath starship and announces that just such an egg has been stolen, the Doctor has questions regarding this impossible crime. Just how would one steal the egg of a star whale? And why? The Judoon don’t know how, and they don’t know why, but they’re not the type to waste time asking questions. They’ve already made an arrest and proving the suspect’s guilt is treated as nothing more than a technicality.

After speaking with the accused, the Doctor and Riddell launch an investigation of their own. Aboard this curious aquatic vessel on a mission of cultural exchange, there is no shortage of unusual suspects. The rebellious teenage stowaway from Raxacoricofallapatorius doesn’t trust anyone, and the larger-than-life Adiposean envoy can’t keep his mouth shut. The Hath cultural liaison has her own seemingly ridiculous agenda, and no one is sure if the glowing cube that’s been sent from the Cygnus system is even a lifeform at all. It will take some real detective work to explain the who, the why, and the how of the most astonishing heist in the cosmos!
