D minus 361 days: The Argo’s warp past Mars takes it too close to Jupiter, and the ship is pulled into the huge planet’s atmosphere, sustaining even more damage in the process. Just when it looks as though the Argo will be crushed in the intense pressure of Jupiter’s lower atmosphere, an impossible solution presents itself – a large land mass afloat in the atmosphere. But this convenient repair stop proves to be too convenient, for the continent is also home to a well-armed secret Gamilon tactical base. Captain Avatar sees the Gamilon threat as a perfect target on which to test the powerful wave motion gun, a piece of Iscandar technology which is so powerful, it drains all power from every other system aboard the Argo immediately before and after firing.
