An enormous meteor is on course to destroy the Earth, and Scrooge has called an emergency meeting to discuss ways to stop it. Gladstone Gander, incidentally, had a seemingly prophetic dream the night before in which he was the last person on a seemingly destroyed Earth. A plan is formed (with the help of clues from Gladstone's dream), and Donald Duck, Gyro Gearloose, Magica De Spell, and Little Helper are sent up to space to destroy the meteor with Omnisolve… but will they be able to stop it in time? Or is the best Gladstone's luck can do just to keep him alive as the last man on Earth?
