Ames, Dexter. Dexter Ames is captain of the Earth-ship Discoverer, traveling the solar system and exploring new worlds. In his first appearance he fights off Neptunian pirates trying to steal the secret of sun control. In his second appearance he and his crew are caught in a time warp and "turn their ray-rifles on the shaggy Hun-hordes of Attila." In his third appearances, Ames and the Discoverer, still caught in the time-warp, are sent "into the dangerous days of the hard-clouting Cave Men."
