At an officers club Anchorage Alaska, Ned "Scotty" Scott (Douglas Spencer) meets with a group of air force officers playing cards. Amid the small talk Scott tells the men he is a reported looking for a story. One of the officers admits that a large number of scientists are at the North Pole. Scott takes an interest on the matter but nothing more is said.
Captain Patrick Hendry (Kenneth Tobey) is paged to General Forgety's quarters. Forgety explains that a strange aircraft has been found at the pole, Hendry is put in charge of the recovery mission. Remembering the earlier conversation he asks if Scott can fly up with the recovery team.
Arriving at the pole they meet with the scientists who are excited about the potential of the find. Hendry catches up with a science assistant Nikki Nicholson (Margaret Sheridan). It is clear from their encounter they have an extensive social past.
