When Spaceman Jax receives a distress call while delivering zandabite crystals, he literally drops everything to save the day. The disabled transport ship (scheduled to bring his niece Dekkin back from camp) is drifting into the Mantagon minefield at the border zone, which the Mantagons are none too happy about. Can Spaceman Jax slip through the minefield and carefully tow the ship to safety – all the while avoiding the angry Mantagons and their Ultra-turbo-zap-guns – and still make his delivery on time?
