Synopsis by Tribune 2003

Gabriel Patterson stumbles upon an underground tunnel while searching for his belongings that fell off the jeep when a tire blew out. Meanwhile, Mackenzie Previn and Judson Cross meet desert natives Harami (Raoul Trujillo) and Omar (Joseph Scoren) who claim to help them search for their missing friend.

Omar reveals to Harami that he befriended Judson and Mac because he thinks they will lead him to the secret underground fortress where the Scepter of the Sovereign lies. Omar believes that if he can capture the scepter, he will rule the lost empire that once governed the desert long ago. Sensing Omar's ulterior motive, Judson leads Omar and his men to the wrong spot and sneaks away with Mac while the men are digging.

As Mac and Judson search the desert for Gabe, Mac falls into a quicksand pit and Judson successfully pulls her out to safety. Judson gets a crazy idea and jumps into the pit of quicksand because he believes it may be the secret entrance to the tunnel below. He's right, and Mac jumps in after him. They finally find Gabe and together, the crew finds the magnificent ancient chamber called 'The Kavasita'. Gabe turns the crank on the 3-D model of the solar system in the chamber and a hidden vault opens to reveal a golden scepter on a stone pedestal.

Realizing that Judson and Mac ran off, Omar and Harami search for them and notice a crack in the sand. They go in with their men, find the Adventure Inc. crew and demand the scepter. Omar puts the crew in a vault, but the crafty trio finds a way out and escapes.

While both parties are trying to find a way out of the tunnel, they run into each other once again. The scepter turns black in Omar's hands and sand and stones start to tumble down from the ceiling. The scepter falls from Omar's hands and into a pool of quicksand. As he reaches for it, he tumbles into the murky pit. Magically, the scepter returns to the surface, golden sheen restored, with no sign of Omar.

All of a sudden a staircase appears, and Harami and the rest of his followers back off from Judson, Mac, and Gabe. The Adventure Inc. crew leaves the underground tunnel with the scepter, successfully completing yet another mission.
