Because his kingdom Dyperia is in danger of attack, Adam's cousin Prince Dell has relocated to the Royal Palace for safety. When Dell is homesick for Dyperia, Orko tries to make him forget about his home kingdom by showing him how much better Eternos is in comparison. He hands him a useless rock he calls the Starcrystal, which Orko says can do anything it is told.

Prince Dell decides to test it by walking into a waterfall, but Orko uses his magic to save the prince and fool him into the stone is magical. Thinking the Starcrystal will be useful to his father in battle, Prince Dell steals the stone from Orko's room. Teela thinks that Dell is heading back to Dyperia, but Orko does not want her to find out about the Starcrystal, so he sends her to the caves.

The Torks, enemies of Dyperia, attack He-Man, Man-At-Arms, and Teela with sleep gas and knock them unconscious. He-Man digs beneath his prison cell to escape.  Prince Dell gives the Starcrystal to his father, King Stephen. Thinking he is now invincible, King Stephen challenges the Torks outright. The heroes fight off the Torks, and He-Man seals them in their cave with an avalanche. Orko finally explains his chain of lies.
