Before he died, Dorian booby-trapped Xenon base’s landing silo using a nuclear device, and without access to Scorpio Avon and the others are once again stranded. After discovering that Dorian had been working on a teleport system, Avon leaves the base to search for power crystals to make it work. But he is attacked by a tribe of men called the Hommicks; he challenges their leader, Gunn-Sar, to a duel, but the savage cheats and overpowers Avon, taking him prisoner. Vila meets a beautiful girl called Pella, who somehow gained access to the base even though the entrances are sealed. Pella is a member of the civilised all-female race called the Seska, who are the sworn enemies of the Hommicks. They were once engaged in a terrible war, and now the only survivors of the Seska are just Pella, Kate and Luxia. After Pella joins forces with Avon, the Hommicks remove Luxia’s implanted power crystal, which gives the Seska her telekinetic abilities. Avon tries to take the crystals, but Pella prevents him; when Dayna challenges Gunn-Sar to a duel, he laughingly agrees. Unknown to Dayna, Pella and Kate telekinetically help her to defeat the savage leader, and they kill him. In Xenon base Pella uses her telekinesis to disarm the nuclear device, enabling her to steal Scorpio. However, Avon has obtained the power crystals, which he uses to activate the teleport. He appears aboard Scorpio and kills Pella, then pilots the ship back to Xenon base. The Seska realise that they must join with the Hommicks if they are to survive. Meanwhile, Soolin joins Avon and the others.
