As news reaches Planet City that the Outer Planets have seceded from the Solar Alliance, the Captain expresses
his belief that one individual is behind the action. He dispatches the Video Ranger and Holmes to patrol the
Jovian asteroids, and through an intercepted coded message learns that an intergalactic insurrection is imminent.
En route to the troubled area, he learns of a scheme to discredit the Ranger who has strayed from his mission.
His resultant dishonorable discharge is only a ruse to infiltrate the rebel action as a supposed ally, but he
is taken captive as is Commissioner Carey. The Captain leads a fleet of Ranger ships to attack an asteroid hideout.
As the battle rages, the Ranger and Commissioner escape, and the supposed rebellion is exposed as a diversionary
hoax by the smugglers.
