Synopsis for "Rockets Awayyyyy!!"
After a series of successful missions, including the neutralization of renegade Oranois, Bennett "Blast" Revere the Chief of Galaxy appoints Jet Dixon to be leader of the Space Squadron peace keeping force, much to the delight of his daughter Dawn and the dismay of his son Edgar, who wished to have the role himself. Blast refuses to consent Dawn's request to marry Jet, telling her that her mother died of a broken heart and worry over his safety while a rocket test pilot and refuses to allow his daughter to suffer the same fate. Meanwhile, Edgar is humiliated that his father would choose someone to lead Space Squadron other than his own son and begins to form plans to discredit Jet in order to take his place as leader of the Squadron.
Meanwhile out in space, Jet and his crew aboard the Solar 1 are chasing some Spheroid renegades who are fleeing in a trio of ships. When two of the ships are disintegrated by a strange invisible barrier the third ship surrenders and Jet takes them into custody. After turning the Spheroids over to the authorities, Jet travels to meet with Space Squadron's Saturnian science officer LLA 38 to find answers about the mysterious barrier. While LLA goes off to do research he reports to Blast who is concerned that the members of the Galaxy council cannot meet with an unknown threat that could possible destroy them. LLA reports back and informs Jet that the cause of the strange barriers is the work of mad scientist Tombalo from the planet Uranos who is using as "Electro-Arc" device to destroy ships. LLA has developed a device that will allow them to track Tombalo, unaware that Edgar is overhearing them and is plotting to sabotage it to dispose of Jet.
In space, LLA realizes that his device has been tampered with and it does not work. They are confronted by Tombalo's ship who openly mocks them before turning on his Electro-Arc in an attempt to destroy them. This gloating allows Jet (suspecting Edgar's treachery) to rewire the device to counteract the Electro-Arc and launches it into space. When the device hits the arc it causes feedback that kills Tombalo, ending his threat and allowing the Galaxy delegation to go to Earth.

Appearing in "Volunteer for Death!"
- Kenneth Hale
Synopsis for "Volunteer for Death!"
In the year 1960, Bennett Revere -- a young mechanic and pilot -- became obsessed with flying in a rocket into space that he would sneak over to the nearby military airfield to peek over the fence. One day he was caught by guards and brought before Mayor Kenneth Hale under suspicions that Revere was a spy. While Hale believed that Revere was not a spy, he still had to follow orders and have the young man locked in the stockade, a situation Bennett did not protest as it allowed him to watch the latest rocket test.
However, the test was in jeopardy later that day when one of Hale's subordinates told him that there was no way to man the ship without going over the weight limit and if they cannot launch the rocket that day, the government would cut their funding. Realizing that young Bennett was the 130 pound man they needed, Hale arranged Revere to be released and gave him his fondest wish: The chance to fly in a rocket into space. The launch is a success and while exploring the solar system, the other members of the crew nicknamed Bennett "Blast" for his constant use of the verb to describe their travel through space.
When the rocket returns to Earth, Bennett is surprised to learn that Hale had gone ahead and got permission from Washington to allow him to join the ranks of his test pilots.
