Jet, Lemmy, and Doc found Mitch in what appeared to be a derelict farmhouse on the South-Western edge of the Argyre desert. But to Jet's surprise Mitch did not recognise him, nor even realise he was on Mars; he thought he was back on earth, in Australia. Then the mysterious flying sphere that Jet had been following landed near the farmhouse and a man who called himself the 'Flying Doctor' made prisoners of the three earthmen. Jet managed to escape, but Doc and Lemmy were forced into the sphere and carried off.
