Don Diego de la Vega shows his trusted houseboy Felipe how astronomy studies the moon, and dreams about mankind going there one day, when his telescope sees a horseman approaching the pueblo hastily. It's a certain señor Morales, who most unkindly asks a room in her inn and commandeers señorita Victoria Escalante to wake him at dawn; when she does, she is found standing over his body, with a bloody stab-wound, arrested and quickly condemned to death by Alcalde Luis Ramone. Diego investigates, and discovers the alcalde actually used his friend, Mexico City's actor Ricardo Cortez, to play dead in order to set a trap for Zorro, but the fox is hard to bait and even harder to catch in a trap...

Don Diego de la Vega: Put out that light. What is it, Felipe? Yes, I know the hour is late. You see there is one obstacle which has vexed astronomers down through the ages - you can only study the moon at night.
