The planet Medusa drifts after a collision with a comet into Earth's solar system and is detected by some Earth scientists. The frozen surface of Medusa is inhabitable and the people are now living in a technical advanced underground city. Medusa is ruled by the women, who consider men as mentally inferior. The men are divided into two categories: the "adequately intelligent" who work as domestics, and the remainder who perform labor under the supervision of female guards. When two male domestics escape to Earth they are pursued by the Medusan security forces. The Medusans fail to re-capture them so they bring two human hostages to Medusa...
