Cosmic imp Egghead has transformed the crew into versions of figures from Earth's history. When Captain Victory investigates, he, Klavus, and Tarin are drawn to medieval France where they are taken to be demons and hunted by the townspeople. Egghead gives them sanctuary in the cathedral of Notre Dame and reveals that he has brought them there to save a damsel in distress and defuse a Q bomb. Egghead takes the outfits from the Three Musketeers and sends Captain Victory and his men off to save Lieutenant Flavia from being burned at the stake. Finally, Egghead disposes of the bomb and himself.
