The second part of the zookeeper played by Michael Rennie. Rennie turns in a memorable performance as The Keeper. His understated performance keeps dramatic tension where none would probably exist with a lessor actor.

Tucker befriends Will by telling tall tales about being a pirate, but it turns out that he is only an ordinary man being pursued by aliens because he has stolen a mind reading device from them.

She and Dr Smith discover that it leeds them to a ring which when worn allows the person to turn anything to plantinum, which Dr Smith does and enjoys. However when it turns even his food to platinum, he is unable to remove the ring, which is now a solid bar. He leaves the camp as he fears turning eveything in to platinum, and fearing he will eventually starve to death.
