Having secured the rights to prospect for platinum in Thailand, Frank, Red, and Dave are preparing to get tools and supplies when they come upon a Siamese temple with a statue of Bokhara.

Synopsis
The Sarge is with a unit attached to a group of government scientists working in the Antarctic, with the task of mapping out crevasses so the scientists can explore freely. Having driven his tractor into a crevasse, Sarge is about to give up hope when he's rescued by little green men from Pluto. Having landed on Earth for repairs, all they need is some uranium so they can head home. After they part ways, Sarge's unit is sent out to "seek and destroy" aliens in the Antarctic raiding uranium storage areas.
