Synopsis: (Continued from SS #10)

The occupying forces shoot at Yarro's space craft while it flies in their air space, hitting it point blank and creating a huge hole in it. Shalla Bal and Yarro fly out of the ship before it crashes, and when they alight on the ground, they are arrested. The Surfer, meanwhile, is carrying Donna in his arms and he spots the descending space ship. He halts it from crashing and notes that it's from Zenn-La.

The army captain threatens to kill Yarro, who offers to use his weapons to help destroy the Surfer in return for saving his skin. He is taken to meet "The General". Silver Surfer returns Donna back to her home and meets more freedom fighters, including Manuel and Pedro. Suddenly, they are assailed by the army; the Surfer fights back and chases them away.

Yarro shows off the gun he has developed for the General, and soon turns it against the Surfer and the rebels that are attacking the compound. While Yarro turns the cannon towards the Surfer, Shalla Bal is caught in the crossfire. The Surfer saves Shalla Bal and then returns fire, which brings the building down around the General and Yarro.

Shalla Bal is mortally wounded, and the Surfer is forced to send her back to Zenn-La for advanced medical care in Yarro's space craft, which he has repaired.
