Zapped by the zeta-beam, Adam is teleported, not to Rann, but to Anthorann, a neighboring planet. Escaping barbarians and their "Rainbow Doom" (a teleporter), he meets Alanna and Sardath. They used knowledge from Samakand scientists to journey to Anthorann, but crashed. Adam dons a Rann spacesuit from the wreckage. Now invaders from Morleen swing a "diamondium" pendulum to cut open the dome of New Ranagar. Adam ray-blasts the shaft - and fades away to Earth.
