After the adventures in SAUCER, Rip Cantrell and his girlfriend Charley Pine donated the flying saucer to the Air and Space Museum. A bored Charley accepts Pierce Artois' offer to pilot a space plane to the moon to bring supplies to the station being built there. While she is on the space plane, Charley notices inside a locked compartment an object marked with a radioactive warning label; nothing on the manifest indicates that anything radioactive is on the ship.

On the moon, Artois and his associates are building a mysterious machine that disturbs Charley.   She soon learns that they are constructing an antigravity beam that will destroy anything in its path even on to earth. Artois wants to be emperor of the world and he has a good chance of succeeding. Charley hijacks a space plane and returns to earth. She and Rip steal back the donated saucer so that they can try to destroy Artois' fleet, leaving him stranded on Luna, rescue his abducted uncle, and ultimately obliterate the weapon of mass destruction.
