Synopsis for "The Emotion Master of Space!"
Traveling once more to Rann, Adam is suddenly attacked by Alanna and the people of Ranagar. He soon finds that they have been controlled by a being named Emotion Master who is using his Coilodyne to control the emotions of others. Adam's weapons have no effect and after giving Adam a show of his power the alien leaves him behind in order to prepare to shift Rann's place in the universe with his own planet.
The effects of the emotion machine worn off, Adam is reunited with Alanna who explains that the alien is named Lo Pau from the planet Lorane. It told the people of Rann that on his home world, his people are virtually immortal until the arrival of a platinum bird from space. The bird would come to Lorane every two years to feast on the abundance of platinum on the planet causing it to give off radiation that would be lethal to the people of Lorane. Fearing that the creature would wipe out their race, they organized a plot to switch Lorane's place with Rann so that the creature would destroy Rann instead.
With Rann now in Lorane's space, their world is at risk. Finishing her story, the two lovers enter Alanna's garden where they find that her puppy has died from eating Athatale plant.
Synthesizing a poison that will effect the Kalulla bird, Adam plans to coat all the platinum on Rann with it, but it's too late to do so, so Adam attempts to harpoon it with a dose of poison while it's still in space, but this plan doesn't work. Next Adam has a fake Kalulla bird to lure the real one to eat a patch of poisoned platinum. This plan works, and the Kalulla eats the poison platinum and dies.
Soon after, the people of Lorane hear of Adam killing the bird, and contact the people of Rann and explain that they had no such poisons to stop the bird on their world. In gratitude for killing it, the people of Lorane return Rann to it's original location in space.
