Even worse for the other creature, his is the first language that the translator won't work on, so the Federation troops decide he must not be intelligent. Monica sees another lost and lonely creature like herself and, identifying with this homeless alien, Monica makes him a pet of sorts, and, in time, becomes the only one who can understand him. She names him Woody because he sounds like Woodstock from the Charlie Brown cartoons. She's taken back to the main base of the Planetary Federation, who are fighting against the evil Emperor of Space, Varnex.
Before she can begin to adapt to this new life, Varnex' forces attack, and Monica and Woody, wanting to see what happens, sneak aboard Marus' spaceship and are whisked away into an all-out space war. During the terrible battle their ship is hit, and Marus is injured, leaving Monica to try to land the hurtling spaceship... on the Emperor's homeworld! Good thing she learned how to do this kind of thing by playing video games! All three jetpack out of the crushed ship but are soon captured and brought before Emperor Varnex. Marus is sent to the radioactive mines, but Monica, unfortunately catching the Emperor's eye, is sent to his harem, along with Woody. But Monica won't stand long for this, breaks free, and sneaks and fights her way through the palace to rescue Marus, as he is her only chance of escape... and he is gorgeous, to boot. She rescues Marus and the other slaves, and, before stealing a spaceship, jams up the Emperor's mine machinery, leading to an explosion that destroys the Emperor's palace and more just as they take off.
