Rocket to the Future! Part 1, Chapter 3

  The Earth Space Rocket Vanguard's crucial mission to Mars to put down the insurrection of the Martian natives is derailed by the Rocketmen from Planet B, who zap the rocket to Mercury. Alliances will be ended and broken homes mended by Captain Major and his crew on the temperate rim of the closest planet to the Sun, which is also the home to the largest vats of space gin in the inner solar system. While Lieutenant Schickelgruber takes space morphine to get over his latest set of burns, Cadet Billy morphs into a name tag-wearing Warlord of Mars, taking Farley Stubbs and Lt. Nemesis hostage. As usual, Commander Iris Train finds out that she is the one responsible for getting them out of their deadly situation.
