Nathaniel and another Nino land on the same uranium-rich planet and fight over mining it. Their mutual interference eventually causes a runaway chain reaction, heating the planet’s interior and causing volcanoes to sprout all over the surface. The Stuffians are killed quickly. The lava flows underground and quickly fills the shafts, forcing Nathaniel to climb straight up by stretching across a narrow gap. Eventually, the two Ninos find they must work together to escape, hopping on islands of lighter rock floating down the river of lava, planning ahead their route, bouncing back and forth off of sloped surfaces. They finally make it to Nathaniel’s ship and he drops his new friend off at his ship before travelling back in time to save Haticat, Fred, and Doctor Bill.
