It's 2199 and the relentless planet bombing from the Gamilons threatens to destroy life on Earth. Earth's remaining survivors are forced to live underground if they want to live at all.
But when the deadly radiation starts penetrating their subterranean cities, it?s a race against time for the Space Cruiser Argo! Launched on a 148,000 light year quest for the planet Iscandar, they hope to discover an advanced technology that will neutralize the contamination.
With only one year to reach the planet, can they navigate the depths of space and survive the attacks of the Gamilon fleets now stationed at Pluto? Will they be able to make it in time? And if they reach Iscandar, who, or what, will they really find there?
In this classic adventure, Captain Avatar has become dangerously sick due to radiation poisoning. Meanwhile, Derek Wilderstar and Mark Venture are waging a private war of their own. Then the Star Blazers discover that one of their force is not who they seem to be?
