Tales of Suspense #29Nothing Can Save Us!

In the year 2088 a group of space explorers with rocket trouble find themselves crash landed on a planet with at least a week of repair work before they can leave. The crew is frightened by a monstrous dragon-like creature that breathes fire, and they want to use the ship's weapons to destroy it. The captain refuses, even drawing a gun on them, to allow planetary protocols to be violated. They can only attack native creatures in self-defense. The argument between the crew and captain seems moot when they notice an asteroid making its way towards them at high speed and will surely smash them before they can complete their repairs. When they accept their fate and wait for doom to befall them, they are surprised to see the dragon monster take notice of the asteroid and direct flame breath at it to alter its course. The crew realize that the regulations governing space explorer behavior were written by wise men for good reasons.
