Three months have passed since the last adventure when our heroes are unexpectedly visited by Vargo, Borron and Gator. The Tavona is needed for work on Mars but in seven days’ time they can use the Tavona for as long as the Professor wishes. The Professor wants to survey the more distant planets. When Rex suggests Ardilla, he is told that it is one of the most dangerous areas in the Universe. The party returns to Arcadia before returning to Mino and prepare for their trip ‘to the edge of beyond’. On the way to Ardilla, Rex is affected by strange thoughts and it is soon realised that it is the effects of the rays from the planet. Vargo and Gator are able to change course and the trip to Ardilla is terminated. They decide to go instead to Terromagna in the Third Region. Ardilla is discussed and they are warned to beware of a red ship from that planet.—DPC. [Suggest a different description.]
