Space Pirates had stored their intergalactic plunder, that they had looted from cargo rockets and interstellar liners cruising the space ways, 23,000 light years from Mercury on the planetoid called Virus. The Planetary Police called Inspector Conrad Cosmic of the Universe Detective Bureau to sort out this sorry state of affairs.

However, the pirates surrounded Inspector Cosmic forcing him to send a S.O.S. for help. His call was answered by "Comics" McCormick who helped operate the ship's ray guns while the Inspector piloted the vessel. Together, the threat of the Space Pirates was ended.
