Feature Story 1: "Prison Star, part 1"
In the night sky above Eternia shines what looks like a very bright star, but is in fact the reflected light from a galactic prisonship called the Prison Star, where the most dangerous criminals in the universe are kept. Hordak plans to break into Prison Star and use the convicts there in his Horde. So he travels up to Prison Star and uses his Horde Troopers to break in, and finding themselves under attack, the wardens send an alert call to Eternia. It is picked up by the people at the Royal Palace, who transfer it to He-Man, who is with Sy-Klone and Snout Spout. They take the portal up to Prison Star, which is already being overrun by the Horde. (Continued in part 2)
This issue's letters page features questions about if Kobra Khan eats flies (?), and the upcoming MOTU movie!
Feature Story 2: "Prison Star, part 2"
He-Man, Snout Spout, and Sy-Klone fight against many deadly criminals in Prison Star, who are at the command of Hordak.

He imprisons the three of them in the electro-bonds, and drops them through an opening in the ground, into space! (Continued in part 3)
Feature Story 3: "Prison Star, part 3"
As He-Man, Sy-Klone, and Snout Spout float about in space, Snout Spout uses some new powers of his to lift them back towards the prison star ship, and the warriors get back inside. However, they are surprised to find the whole place extremely quiet, when it should be overrun by Hordak's new army! They go to investigate, and find the Horde battling against the criminals! It turns out that the criminals all turned against Hordak and locked him in the space dock, hoping to destroy him! So as the Horde and the criminals are busy fighting, He-Man releases the wardens, who were locked in the cells by the criminals. The wardens overpower them all and lock them back in the cells, and Hordak retreats with the Horde.
