When his entire village went missing in a fierce sandstorm, including his family, Altran went looking for help on his Sand Slider. Saved from some dingo raiders by Marshal BraveStarr, the lawman then took Altran back his now-ruined village to try and uncover the mystery. They were attacked by Pom-Pom Spiders in the Iron Mountains, but between the speed of the Sand Slider and BraveStarr's Neutra-Laser they got through to the other side.
At the ruins of his village, BraveStarr used his Optivisor to locate a heat source in one of the buildings which turned out to be Tarin, Altran's sister, in hiding. Tarin explained that she had seen giant Sand Crabs loading the villagers onto a large barge, and BraveStarr deduces that they have been kidnapped by Sand Storm.
