A mysterious object takes position over New Chicago and fires a powerful warning shot into the wastelands. Buck and Wilma try to destroy the weapon, but it proves impervious to the starfighters’ pulsar cannons. Not long afterward, the Draconian flagship enters orbit, and Princess Ardala announces her intention to wed Buck. It turns out that an unwed princess cannot ascend to the Draconian throne, and Ardala will decimate Earth unless the object of her desire is handed over to her. Buck surrenders willingly to save his friends and his home world, but when the Draconian courting ritual includes such cultural events as a mano a mano fight with Tigerman, Buck quickly decides to remain single by any means necessary.
