Synopsis for "Golden Swarm"

Queen Bee teams up with Reglo, the dictator of Valga, to take over Luonia, but clearly she is in charge of this enterprise. He brings an armored division, at the Luonian border, into the deal; she brings her Golden Swarm. Per her directions, the Valgan tanks sit still at the border, almost long enough for the Blackhawk Squadron to arrive, at which time, Queen Bee double crosses Reglo. Her Golden Swarm of fighter jets swoop out of nowhere, using rockets to smash Reglo's tanks, then using machine guns on his infantry. Then the Golden Swarm, led by Queen Bee's aide Marla, flies to Luonia's capital city, to pose as its defenders. Queen Bee herself, meanwhile, flies to Valga's capital, where she meets with Reglo, kills him with a poisoned sword, and takes over his nation's government. Her secret Golden Swarm agents, already infiltrated into the Valgan government, organize a Women's Government, and within 24 hours drive male officials out of every important post in Valga.

The Golden Swarm use their new-found influence, in Luonia to agitate for a Women's Government in that country also. President Trand and his cabinet are already hunted outcasts by the time the Blackhawks arrive, just one hour after the the one-sided battle at the border. Marla, soon joined by Queen Bee, have sparked widespread discontent among the female half of Luonia's population, and the Blackhawks are actually driven out of the country by mob action. Luonian broadcasting, and newspapers worldwide, carry the news of the Golden Swarm's embarrassment of the Blackhawks, inspiring women all over the world to rise up and join the Swarm.

Two weeks of this go by, with the Golden Swarm smashing several other antidemocracy plots here and there, with the Blackhawks increasingly sidelined by their growing movement. But meanwhile in Luonia and Valga, the Queen Bee's rule grows increasingly dictatorial. Blackhawk cooks up a plan, then the team flies to confront the Queen Bee at her Golden Hive. A detachment of beauties, in skimpy outfits, accompany them to Her Highness's beehive-shaped citadel. Blackhawk and the Queen Bee have a conversation, and she overconfidently lets slip the true scope of her ambitions, while Blackhawk's belt radio acts as open microphone. Her sleazy plan is broadcast across the world, and her new fans are quick to turn against her. Infuriated, Queen Bee sics Marla and her bodyguards, armed with poisoned swords, onto the Blackhawks, knowing full well that these guys would never use their fists against women. But that's why they brought along a bag of mice, which they dump onto the floor and send the girls shrieking away. A squad of male guards rushes into the throneroom with rifles, but are quickly fisticuffed into submission. The Blackhawks run to the airport, and while the women of Luonia are pulling each other's hair and scratch-fighting, they jump into their F-90Bs and fly away!
