Plot in a Nutshell: Steve climbs a mountain.
Story Summary: Steve is shown new satellite photos of an old World War II airplane called "My Little Girl" that crashed back in 1945 two miles from the Chinese border. Steve must climb a mountain to the ledge the plane crashed on and retrieve the plans that can save his people and restore freedom to the galaxy.
Steve is then informed that his late father, who was a great pilot, bailed out of the craft as it went down. In doing so, he betrayed and murdered his fellow crewmen.
Steve is teamed with Chin-Ling to learn to mountain climb.
Steve and Chin-Ling climb up and then back down. And then up and then back down. And then up and then Steve falls back down.
So they fly off to...actually, I don't think they know where they're going, only that it's near China. So they fly off to Near-China.
They bail out of the plane and moments later they are accosted by bandits, who procede to chase Steve down while killing Chin-Ling.
And Now a Word from our Sponsors
Steve escapes and is helped by one of the bandits named Garth who is an American but speaks English like he's an ESL student.
Garth takes him home, but his wife is incensed that he would bring home someone who is being pursued by the bandits.
After a nights rest, Steve and Garth climb up the mountain toward the crashed plane.
After a seemingly interminable amount of hoisting themselves up the mountain, they make it to the plane. Steve checks the dog-tags on the body in the pilots seat and finds the name Christopher Bell. It seems his father did bail out after all. He grabs the secret plans, they bury the bodies of the dead crew, and then they head down the mountain again.
Meanwhile, the bandits visit Garth's wife at home.
In an effort to save her husband's life, she tells the bandits that her husband was kidnapped by Steve at gunpoint and forced to climb the mountain.
The bandits leave, but knowing that Steve didn't have a gun, they plan to wait for Steve and Garth at the bottom of the mountain and get them both.
The bandits attack, but Steve takes them out easily.
However, the leader of the bandits, Queng-Dri, comes after Steve in a moment of vulnerability. Seeing his new friend in trouble, Garth throws himself in front of Queng's horse and saves Steve.
As he lays either dying or merely injured, it's never made entirely clear, Garth admits he is Christopher Bell and he switched dog-tags with Steve's father. It was Bell who bailed out, not Carl Austin. Dad is vindicated.
How Did You Do That Quote:
Garth: "You outran horses. Your strength. Your strength is incredible. Just who are you?"
Garth: "Not an ordinary one."
Garth: "And in others?"
Move your mouse over Steve to see his answer.
Final Thoughts: This episode makes mountain climbing look like watching paint dry.
