Synopsis:
“Ike” Harris, Doctor Damian and his daughter Margo discover the Chamber of the Gods beneath the high plains of the Andes, which is evidence of visits by extra-terrestrial beings.

Over the Pacific Ocean along the South American shores, a pilot encounters a “sinister, crackling force.” He ejects from the plane, and then both plane and pilot are swallowed up by the force. It is revealed that Deviants have used a disruptor to create this chaos. Kro and Brother Tode, part of the ruling family, fear the coming of the “the Gods.” They live in an undersea city that was part of Lemuria. Kro leaves to find and destroy the beacon calling “the Gods,” somewhere in Inca territory.

“Ike” Harris reveals himself to be Ikaris. He explains to the Damians that “the Gods” came to earth before man evolved. Their mission was to change the destiny of the ape. They selected one and gave him “the cosmic chemistry that would father the races to come!” The ape became the progenitor of three species – Deviant, Humanity, and Eternal.

“The Gods” made many visit to Earth, the last of which was during the reign of the Incas.

Ikaris detects that the ship of the Gods is on it’s way to earth, guided by a beacon.

Kro and his Deviant crew arrive in the Chamber of the Gods via an undersea passageway, too late to stop Ikaris from activating the beacon. Ikaris battles the Deviants but “the Gods” arrive and the battle ceases.
