On Roc's World, Dart and Blackjak fight General Ki's goons after he has refused to pay their fee. After the fight is broken up by the local police, General Ki escapes to meet the Dark Destroyer, who kills him when he shows up without Dart. Meanwhile, the captain of the Kilos kidnaps a native baby from the planet Egg. At the same time, at ATARI headquarters in orbit around New Earth, Professor Venture introduces Morphea to Tempest. And on Moon Alpha in the Betelgeuse star-system, Pakrat steals the Klavian crown jewels and hops a ship to New Earth.


This issue contains a summary of the mini-comics in what will become the letter column (lettercol).


  1. In AF2.01, the freighter whose captain kidnaps Babe is called the Kilos. In all later issues, it's the Kylos. I guess it depends on how you translate it.
  2. This Betelgeuse star system is obviously not the same as ours since it's in a different universe.
