Synopsis for "Invasion From Saturn"

Virginia True invites the Holliday Girls and Diana Prince to visit at her family vacation home on Long Island. While there a strange man attacks Ginny underwater while she is swimming, and when she sees him later that night at a gathering he denies her accusations. Suspicions raised Diana follows the man and at her questions he attacks her and reveals himself to be Mephisto Saturno, a spy from the Empire of Saturn, sent to do reconnaissance prior to a planned invasion of earth along with some Saturnian slavers who are abducting humans to use as slave labor back in the Empire.

After he is captured he laughs off his sentencing in court, arrogantly making it clear he plans to escape in twenty days and complete his mission. As the date approaches Diana is concerned that his plan has not been unveiled, and on the day itself everyone in D. C. is so drowsy that people are falling asleep at the wheel. It turns out his plan had included Saturnic Lassitude Gas being dispersed through the city, so that he could escape with ease and capture those he'd determined to be potential threats on his way to his waiting spacecraft. Diana is able to save the Holliday Girls, but Steve Trevor is abducted and enslaved while she is busy dealing with the Saturnian agents at Holliday College. Diana allows herself to be captured and taken to the Saturnian Empire to rescue him, and while there the couple lead a slave revolt and rescue many humans who had been abducted and enslaved.

In one final bid to complete his mission Mephisto has one of his subordinates impersonate Ginny, who remains captive, and put a toxin in Wonder Woman's boots. While he is able to capture Wonder Woman she awakens during transport, defeats him and disables his ship. When Steve Trevor and the Holliday Girls travel to the Saturnian Empire to try and free her she is able to convince the Emperor to begrudgingly sign a peace treaty and free every human slave in his empire.
