A visiting bizarrely-constructed alien ship sends out a friendly-sounding voice invites the team of Koenig, Helena, and Victor Bergman to enter the vessel. They have been communicating with the ship itself, which insists that the Alphans send out an eagle full of materials it needs for survival. The sole "human" entity aboard the ship informs the Alphans that he constructed the ship, which calls itself Gwent, and had infused it with his own personality. After the man (called "Companion") dies, the Alphans realize the supplies aren't the only thing that the lonely Gwent has arrived here for.

Gwent was built in two scales (plus larger sections for the lift and Eagle docking). The big model was smashed by Nick Allder immediately after filming, in frustration after problems making the ship roll correctly. See more
