The people of Earth are succumbing to a mysterious and lethal disease which leaves a curious purple spot on the victims' foreheads. Acting on a hunch, Flash Gordon, Dale Arden and Dr. Zarkov blast off in a rocketship in search of answers and discover a spaceship spraying purple dust into Earth's atmosphere. Commanding the spaceship is none other than Ming the Merciless, ruler of the planet Mongo! From a thrilling aerial duel, Flash and his friends are catapulted into high adventure, battling monstrous mechanical men in the frozen wastes on the planet Frigia. They must find the antidote to the deadly dust and stop the devious designs of the power-mad Ming while there is still an Earth left to save! This is a feature-length edited version of Chapters 1-6 of the 1940 serial "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe."
