The Rangers are investigating several recent cases of people disappearing while others are left dead. Joe and Reese follow the tracks from the most recent kidnapping walking into a trap. They find themselves slaves of the Emperor Hannibal Rex who is recreating a Roman style empire in Texas aided by his man Brunning. Erik senses that most of the captives have a trade so he and Chad masquerade as a renown architect and sculptor from the East. Hannibal has them kidnapped to design his new residence and fill it with art. They of course take advantage of Joe and Reese as slaves with Joe moving up in status to gladiator. Erik is pestered by Hannibal's favorite queen but he realizes the consequences of playing with her but Chad doesn't. Chad's playtime ends with him hanging over a pit of snakes and the others watching. Written by
