Plot synopsis

On a beach in Rodia, scrap collectors find a ship's bell belonging to India Voyager II, Captain Savarna's ship, and sell it to a scrap dealer. The scrap dealer writes a letter to The Phantom. When The Phantom comes for a visit, the scrap collector tells him that there are rumours that the Rodian airforce attacked a ship offshore.

The Phantom hires a boat and diving gear to search for the ship. He discovers it, sunken to ocean floor, its final destiny caused by large explosions. His hope that Savarna has managed to escape is dashed when he finds a dead body in the captain's quarters.

The Phantom decides to avenge Savarna's death. Breaking into the home of a Rodian navy admiral, his interrogation is interrupted by captain Savarna herself. She is very pleased to meet him again. She suggests that they should work together as a team to fight crime but the Phantom is against this since her methods are too brutal. She tells him that she is in love with him, then shoots him. The Phantom wakes up a little while later with heavy bruises from the rubber bullets he has been shot with.
