Synopsis for King Arthur: "Part One (of six)"

An unknown knight by the name of Arthur falls in love with Guinevere, daughter of King Leodogran. Arthur vanquishes Leodogran's rivals to gain his favor, becoming a king himself in the process. Yet Leodogran is still reluctant to give his daughter's hand in marriage to Arthur, so Bedivere and Bellicent tell him of his fantastic origins:

Arthur was the son of the tyrannical King Uther, but he was raised in secret by Knight Anton with the aid of Merlin. Then, as an adult, he was chosen by the Lady of the Lake to wield the mythical sword Excalibur.

Upon hearing this, Leodogran agrees to the marriage. Back in Arthur's court, damsel Lynette asks Arthur to help her free her sister Lyonors. Arthur appoints kitchen scullion Garth to the quest, after he asks him for a chance at knighthood. Lynette mocks Garth for being a mere servant, but the scullion proves his worth in battle.

Synopsis for Federal Men: "Airborne Revenge"

Wealthy aircraft manufacturer Morton Brent is working on a new airplane for the U.S. government, and there have been threats. Steve Carson is assigned to protect him. Brent, Carson, and Brent's pilot fly towards Brent's Northern Estate, and are ambushed in mid-flight by an unmarked fighter plane. The propeller is disabled. Steve Carson crawls out onto one wing, walks along it, and waits for his chance. When the enemy plane gets close enough, he drops onto it, grabs a swivel machine gun, aims it at the pilot, and tells him where to land. Instead, the pilot throws a switch that causes his engine to catch fire, then jumps out, wearing a parachute. Carson jumps after him and catches him; they struggle, and the pistol-wielding pilot misses Steve, at very close range.

Brent's pilot meanwhile has managed a pancake landing. Carson and his foe land nearby, and the bad guy draws a bead on Morton Brent. Carson jumps him and grabs away his pistol. He identifies himself as Grayson and claims to be the real inventor of Brent's new model of airplane. Brent points a gun of his own at both of them, effectively proving Grayson's point, and takes a moment to explain how clever his plan is. Carson jumps him and while they're fighting, Brent's pilot has recovered his wits, and joins the fight on Carson's side. Carson has to fend off another murderous attack by Grayson on Brent, but Carson now holds the only gun on the scene, so Grayson and Brent are both under arrest.
