Synopsis

A tiny rocket ship lands near Challenger Mountain. Inside Prof finds a tiny gold ball. Which is snatched by an alien spaceman, who runs for his own spaceship! Prof tackles him. X-rays show a tiny man inside. The ball pops open and the prisoner expands to normal size. He is Zanna, former ruler of the planet Ak-Sel. He was overthrown by an insurgent, Dakyah, shrunk, and exiled into space. In the would-be thief’s spaceship, the Challengers and Zanna fly to Ak-Sel. Zanna’s underground fighters hide in an extinct volcano. But Dakyah’s troops attack. Blacking out the complex, Zanna’s fighters and the Challengers fly to a floating island, one of many. Dakyah plans an attack from his palace. The Challengers counter-attack. With precision flying, they float the entire island over the palace and attack in jet-sleds! The Challengers blow up the main defenses and land. Zanna’s army overruns the palace. Victory! Where’s Dakyah? Trapped in a tiny space ball! He hoped to escape and be rescued later. The Challengers, their help greatly appreciated, will be flown back to Earth.
