Myra Trent is an adventurer with a taste for speed. She wins many races, setting land-speed records and winning speedboat races. Her desire for adventure leads her to investing her energy into creating a rocket to be the future human to reach the planet Mars. A scientist working on the project named Ted Corsy. Ted expressed his love for Myra, asking her to not go on the night before take off. Myra tells him that she is going for certain, but Ted will be with her by radio contact the entire way.

Ted remains in contact with her throughout. After the touchdown on Mars, a green, tentacled creature with a canine appearance approaches Myra. She acts terrified as the creature approaches. Myra's blaster is too far for her to reach, and the communicator clicks off when the creature brushes it.
