Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The aliens rob armored trucks to buy rubies for laser weapons.

Ironhorse accidentally kills a woman named Sarah Cole. Shaken, he is sent off to recuperate and is later captured by Sarah's vengeful husband Martin, using a remote-controlled model helicopter bearing explosives.
