The extra-terrestrials are highly intelligent, technically advanced and extremely knowledgeable. Who will come out on top? For the knights, there is only one possible reaction to invaders who do not treasure English hospitality: attack. Unimpressed by the aliens′ high-tech weapons, the knights storm the spaceship, take a hostage and set off for the Holy Land to put the fear of God into the heathen. But then the hostage switches the automatic pilot to "return home" ...
