Synopsis

The Challengers answer a shipwreck distress call, but find it's a mirage and a trap. They're pulled through space on a light beam and made captives of a rocket ship space circus. The heroes are prodded through cages and catapulted into a tank to fight Quadro, the Four-Finned Demons. Other alien performers are also captives. Ace coordinates an attack. Round cannonball-men fired from catapults pelt the guards while flying-men swoop on them. The Challengers battle and some captives escape. The heroes gain the cockpit and pilot the rocket to an asteroid made of glittering diamonds. As the Challengers prepare for a last stand, Prof learns the atmosphere gives them super-strength. They bombard the circus guards with boulders and disable the ships. The alien audience is surprised to learn the circus owners are criminals, and promise to send all the captives home. Ace says, "That's one flight it'll be a pleasure to make!"
