"Once more," said Flay, "I am going to ask you politely and then we will really get to work on you. Where has this base crew gone?"
"I DON'T KNOW!" screamed Bolz.
"Hit him!" said the colonel.
It was the last order he ever issued in this life.
The blow hit the button remote in Bolz's pocket.
There was a searing flash throughout the hangar!
The Death Battalion, the warship, the Blixo, the crew, Captain Bolz and Oh Dear glowed, suddenly outlined in incandescence. They shifted color upward from red to yellow to violet. They went black. They turned to silica, momentarily holding shape, then they became molten glass.
The Death Battalion, sent by Apparatus Chief Lombar Hisst to take control on Earth, was gone.

The insane Lombar Hisst, out of control on Voltar holds the fate of Earth and the entire Voltar Confederacy in his clenching Hands.
Here is truly Villainy Victorious, the ninth, heart-stopping volume in L. Ron Hubbard's best-selling dekalogy.
