Origin

In the 21st century, a military force from Jupiter attacks the allied worlds of Earth, Mars, and Venus. The Allied World Forces use A.W. Meteorjets to battle the Jovejets of the Jovian Invaders.

Captain Jax, aka Space Ace, battles the Jovians, recording 78 Jovejets shot down. Jon is called to headquarters for a top-secret mission. He surprised to discover he is to take a woman from A.W. Intelligence along with him on his next flight. Dinah Dean orders Jon to prepare his ship to launch at 2100 hours. He balks at the command, and she soothes him with compliments. She then informs him that she outranks him as a Major.

Space Ace straightens up and takes Major Dean along in his ship. He sees a group of Jovejets, preparing to engage with them. Dinah tells him to let the other Meteorjets handle the Jovian fighters. He begrudgingly obeys, watching as they follow a Jovian fighter intentionally crash into an A.W. base. The ship throws free what looks like an armored figure.

They follow the Jovejet escort flight back to "Asteroid 13". A group of Jovejets approach, and Space Ace's lone fighter is outnumbered. Captain Jax's ship takes a hit, and he uses a lake to land the craft.

Dinah, leading Jax, goes in search of a factory on the Asteroid. They find a Jovian guard watching the area. Captain Jax dispatches the guard with a rock to its head. She finds a factory building robots to send on suicide missions in the Jovejets. Another Jovian finds the pair and explains the plans to send the robot suicide bombers against the A.W. asteroid settlements in atom-bomb equipped Jovejets, gradually moving toward Earth. Captain Jax beans the Jovian with a robot part and knocks the Jovian unconscious.

Back at A.W. headquarters on Earth, the A.W. leader bemoans the fact Captain Jax and Dinah have gone missing.

The Jovian commander orders the robots into the Jovejets. Captain Jax tells Dinah to get into an empty robot shell. They surreptitiously commander one of the Jovejets. Jax uses the communicator on the ship to warn A.W. forces.

The A.W. Meteorjets wipe out the Jovejets. As they head for Earth, Major Dinah Dean orders Captain Jax to kiss her. An abuse of power to which Captain Jax happily accedes.
