While on Mongo, Flash and Dale spot flying "disc-ships" traveling from the planet Misto to attack Earth. They follow the ships to Earth, where Flash destroys the fleet, except for the ship of the commander, Wongee; who disables Flash's ship. Flash attaches his ship to Wongee's and after a mutiny against Wongee, Flash and Dale are taken to Misto. They escape from the ship as it comes in for a landing and find themselves in the midst of a rural area. A friendly peasant, Agricula, hides them and then they make their way to the Queen's palace where they find that Wongee is enacting his plans to overthrow the throne.
