This ship traveled to Earth in the past and left there a purple sphere that is a weapon. It is a bomb that will explode and release a virus that will make all people hate each other and want to kill each other. The Black Wanderer was going to then come to Earth and take over the planet, but some the virus made the crew kill each other, while the bomb is still on Earth. This bomb will explode and undermine the Earth in eight hours.

Here, they enlist the help of the sorcerer Uuukh, and encounter many figures from Slavic Mythology, such as Baba-Yaga and Koschei the Deathless. Eventually, the heroes find the sphere, and Uuukh casts it into the sun, saving the future. Alisa and Gromozeka return to their time, and all is well.
