Victory has been assured, but the life of a fellow friend has not been. Surfer must rush for help before a life slips away in his hands.
The Surfer has rescued Donna Maria and destroyed the General's headquarters but they still fight back. They notice the ship carrying Shalla and Yarro Gort and shoot it down. They take them captive. But Yarro agrees to share his weaponry with the General in order to help kill the Surfer.
The Surfer returns Donna Maria to her home and meets the rest of the freedom fighters. Meanwhile, Yarro shows the General his weapons.
The Surfer and the freedom fighters attack the General and Yarro assists with his advanced technology. He plans to kill the Surfer but Shalla tries to stop him. She is shot by one of the soldiers. The Surfer retrieves her and shoots a beam at them, killing the General.
The only hope for Shalla is medical treatment back on Zenn-La. He repairs her ship and sends her back in the hope she can be saved.
