Episode Summary

The Magic Spells Of Circe
Near the zone of the Kingdom of Hades, Ulysses and the children are rendered unconscious, and the Odyssey is taken into another dimension. Their companions are taken from their chamber and placed on the Odyssey's bridge. An Earth-like planet is detected, and the now-awakened Ulysses uses a shuttle to investigate. As he does so, his companions are manipulated into piloting the Odyssey to the planet, known as Aim, by Circe the enchantress. She turns the Odyssey's crew into swine so as to be her slaves. Ulysses encounters a space commander named Hermes who tells him that his crew were taken by Circe, who wants to build a giant tower of knowledge. When she has all the knowledge of the universe, she will be able to stand up to the gods. Hermes shows Ulysses how to get to the tower, and once there he and Nono encounter Circe's librarian, also named Hermes. Ulysses finally finds Circe, who refuses to return Ulysses companions to normal. When she finds out who he is, she tells him that he can help her ambitions as he is the only man to have defied the gods. She promises to free his companions and the other space travellers and give them a map of all Olympus in order to defeat the gods. All she asks in return is that Ulysses stays with her. He agrees, and Circe uses her magic to restore all the space travellers including Ulysses' companions to no normal. However, her librarian Hermes tells her that if she gives the Odyssey's crew the map to Olympus, the gods will punish her. Hermes gets the other space travellers to ascend the tower, and there at the top he prepares to attack them. Ulysses is about to fight him when Circe appears and gives him the map of Olympus. Hermes catches it and throws it off the tower, and Circe destroys him. Soon, the tower itself is destroyed by the gods, and as the Odyssey leaves the planet's orbit, the companions come under the gods spell once more and are frozen. Circe ascends the stairway of the gods to face their judgement.moreless
