The Tantalution story arc is now behind the series, and Jason of Star Command’s second season continues with an episode entitled “Through the Stargate.”
Here, a minion of Dragos named Adron (Rod Loomis) pretends to be an ambassador so that his disabled ship, “The Space Flyer” can be repaired at an unsuspecting Star Command.
Soon, Samantha, Jason and Parsafoot use the artifact to transport to an alien world, one where they encounter a giant, injured creature, and nurse it to health. Soon however, Adron shows up too, and reveals his true form. Before long, he traps his enemies in a cavernous prison edifice.
In “The Power of the Star Disk” and “Secret of the Ancients” episodes, Parsafoot learned that an alien device was actually a matter transporter, and Dragos used it to strand the crew on a planet in another dimension.
In this episode, “Through the Stargate,” yet another matter transmitter strands the heroes on another planet…and the same sound-stage to boot. This planet, like its predecessor, seems to be set in another dimension, since Dragos tells Adron “We have intruders in your universe.” All the same story elements are repeated, only this time, the narrative promises to reveal more about Samantha than Commander Stone.
