The Trojan War is retold in the form of a high school rivalry between the students of Prometheus Academy and their Trojan rivals. When a mindless prank gets out of hand and Helen, the Homecoming Queen, is kidnapped, the whole group decides to rescue her from Paris by sneaking into the Trojan school in a wooden horse, courtesy of wacky inventor Icarus. Fortunately, with the power of steam, Icarus is able to get it up and running to about four miles an hour. Unfortunately, he fails to remember brakes, causing damage to the school and bringing about Helen's rescue. In the end it is shown that Helen was not captured, but merely went to discuss the problem. After hearing this Homer, who was listening to the whole thing, decides to make the story juicier by turning the story into a war.
