S01 E01Oct 2, 2000
The Adventure Begins Oct 2, 2000 The pilot episode. After a successful mission in which his partner, Warp Darkmatter, fell in battle, Buzz Lightyear vows never to put another partner at risk and works solo. This vow, however is challenged by Star Command who assigns young Mira Nova to be Warp's replacement over Buzz's objections. In addition, the LGMs suggest he tries a new robot for an assistant while a lowly janitor, Booster, has his dreams of joining the Space Rangers. Together, this group of disparate heroes find they must work together to save the galaxy when Emporer Zurg hatches his grandest scheme for conquest yet.
S01 E02Oct 3, 2000
The Torque Armada Oct 3, 2000 Zurg gives Torque the cloning device that mostly serves to define Torque's character. Team Lightyear has to deal with him. Episode pretty much just introduces us to Torque; pales in comparison to later episodes.
S01 E03Oct 4, 2000
Gravitina Oct 4, 2000 Gravitina (blue-ish skin, very large head, telekinetic control over gravity) decides to help Zurg wipe out Star Command. Gravitina pummels Star Command with meteors; 42 investigates; Gravitina falls for Buzz; they save Gravitina from falling into a sun.
S01 E04Oct 5, 2000
XL Oct 5, 2000 A rash of stolen technology leads Team Lightyear to discover that the proto-version of XR, XL, has been fixed up by Zurg and sent out to soup himself up and wreak revenge upon Star Command. When Buzz attempts to lure XL into a trap by using XR as ""bait"" Commander Nebula ends up kidnapped, instead.
S01 E05Oct 6, 2000
Little Secrets Oct 6, 2000 After an inspection of planet Rhizome's bio-defenses, Team Lightyear are all given energy plants by Professor Triffid. Booster instead picks up a red one instead of a white one (the white ones pretty much just sit there and produce electricity via photosynthesis, the red ones convert the extra energy into advanced growth), and the plant is slowly taking over the ship, and then Star Command itself. XR has begun to give unauthorized tours for Buzz Lightyear fans behind everyone's backs. At the same time as Booster & Mira attempting to quell the swarming plants, and XR trying to keep Buzz from finding out about the tours, Buzz is attempting to locate and identify a conspirator that is somewhere on Star Command (...actually one of Zurg's grubs in an LGM suit...)
S01 E06Oct 8, 2000
Inside Job Oct 8, 2000 Buzz is impressed by a new rookie, Flash Flemming, much to Booster's chagrin. When the planet Gargantia's ambassador, Ursona Major contacts Star Command in order to join, problems ensue. It turns out that there are rebels, who oppose the idea of Gargantia joining Star Command, and thus possibly losing their individuality, led planet-side by Tremendor and on-site by Monumentus. The new rookie, Flash, turns out to be actually about a half-dozen of the Gargantian Resistance rebels in a person-suit (...the natives of Gargantia stand about 6"" tall...).
S01 E07Oct 9, 2000
NOS-4-A2 Oct 9, 2000 Warp Darkmatter hijacks a cargo ship which is carrying NOS-4-A2's coffin and Team Lightyear comes to stop them, but Darkmatter initiates freighter Destruct but Team Lightyear gets NOS-4-A2's coffin out before it explodes and Returns with it back to Star Command, Meanwhile XR checks on the cargo (NOS-4-A2) he gets bitten by NOS-4-A2 and is under his control. Later that day when everyone returns home NOS-4-A2 awakens he has XR let him out and then NOS-4-A2 uses Commander Nebula's Voice to have everyone leave Star Command thinking that there is a Red Alert, they take control of Star Command and then Buzz and Mira know that that is the Commander tells the m to trust the computer when in reality Commander Nebula hates Robots and Machines, so Buzz and Mira return to Star Command and team up with Booster and Commander Nebula to stop NOS-4-A2. When NOS-4-A2 is about to bite Buzz, Booster shows XR his Work Order and he Returns to Normal and XR captures and Drains all of NOS-4-A2's Energy.
S01 E08Oct 10, 2000
The Planet Destroyer Oct 10, 2000 Buzz and Mira are chasing after Lardak for Counterfeiting and when they are taking him back to 42, they see Trade World being Destroyed. Zurg contacts the Galactic Alliance and tells them ro surrender or more planets will be destroyed. Then Zurg says that he will destroy the planet at 12:00 noon Planet Z time that he pulls its name from the raffle box and he draws planet, Tangea! Later, Star Command constructs a Laser web (Many Star cruisers around a planet shooting lasers in 6 directions) around Tangea to protect it from the planet destroyer, later at 12:00 Planet Z time they think the web held but it didn't and Tangea disappears too. The Galactic Alliance President surrendures to Zurg and while Commander Nebula tells Zurg that Lightyear has been reassigned in reallity Team Lightyear are looking for the planet destroyer while Zurg explains how he will enslave the galactic Alliance Buzz tells Booster to set couse for planet Z but Mira tells Buzz to go to the Peligar System and
S01 E09Oct 11, 2000
The Beasts of Karn Oct 11, 2000 Dr. Ozma Furbanna is researching critters; Rentwhistle Swack is poaching; Booster gets poached.
S01 E10Oct 12, 2000
Tag Team Oct 12, 2000 After a run-in with Warp Darkmatter, the LGMs discover that there is an odd implanted device within Buzz. In contacting Warp, Buzz finds out that he, too, has a similar device within himself, and that both of them were implanted long before Warp even left Star Command. It turns out that the devices were planted by three Chlorm scientists, Era(who is studying ""evil""), Eon (who is studying ""good""), and Epoch (who seems to be studying insanity...), who realized Warp's potential for evil and wanted to see how the two test subjects would differ.
S01 E11Oct 13, 2000
The Main Event Oct 13, 2000 Bill Gates-ish kid (his business is Compu-klerm) has Zurg and Buzz fight; Rentwhistle is his ""agent/bookie/tour guide"".
S01 E12Oct 15, 2000
The Return of XL Oct 15, 2000 XL has found that the primary difference between he and XR is that XR has a component called an ""AFD"", so he kidnaps XR and removes his AFD. In order to locate a new one, XR ditches Team Lightyear, goes to TradeWorld and contacts Crumford Lorak, who directs him to a semi-black market dealer in robot parts called ""The Fixer"". The Fixer has XR work as a delivery boy in order to work up the funds for buying a new AFD. When XR goes to the one source for AFDs that The Fixer knows about, the source turns out to be XL, who set up a ""fake"" ad for ""spare AFDs"" in order to lure XR in. XL hooks up XR to a Star Command G-Force Trainer (which XL likes to call his ""centrifigator""), but Team Lightyear (after trailing XR for most of the episode) shows up in time to let XR know that the AFD is just an Air-Freshening Device (country fresh scent).
S01 E13Oct 16, 2000
Strange Invasion Oct 16, 2000 Team Lightyear ends up crashing on the distant planet Roswell. Roswell is populated by the typical Roswell-crash ""greys""; the plot is much like the whole Roswell-incident, but in reverse, due to Mira and Buzz being the humanoid ""aliens"", and the natives being what we would consider aliens (but w/ an odd ""Andy Griffith/Mayberry RFD"" flair); Booster and XR have to save Buzz and Mira from the local military authorities, aided by the local sheriff (who is very Andy Griffith-like), and his daughter Becky (...who becomes fast friends with Booster, and calls him by the pet name ""Pickles""...).
S01 E14Oct 17, 2000
The Taking of PC-7 Oct 17, 2000 Torque is taken to Penal Colony Seven by Booster and XR; he escapes from them and wrests control of the prison (with the aid of his many ""clones""). At the same time, the President of the Galactic Alliance is being given a tour of PC-7 and being shown its high-tech security system. The security system proves to have some ""bugs"" when it determines that all non-secure persons in PC-7 MUST be escaped prisoners, thus it attempts to capture and subdue not only Torque (and his ""clones""), but also the Galactic President, Booster, and XR. From orbit outside PC-7, Mira and Buzz attempt to help out, but the system interprets their actions as aid for the supposed ""prison break"" going on inside.
S01 E15Oct 18, 2000
Mindwarp Oct 18, 2000 Compu-klerm Co. brainwashes Buzz into thinking that he is an office clerk. Buzz's combat skills are downloaded into the Klerm Slambots, which Team Lightyear then have to fight to save Buzz.
S01 E16Oct 19, 2000
Mira's Wedding Oct 19, 2000 Tangean noble Lord Angstrom tries to get Mira to wed Fop Doppler, a fairly minor member of the Tangean noble clique (and fairly snooty) so as to provide a distraction as a band of Tangean ""Grounders"" attack and allow for Lord Angstrom to overthrow Mira's father. The Grounders are a humanoid race that shares the planet Tangea with the race that Mira is native to. While the blue-skinned, svelte, and fairly bourgeois Tangeans (""Tangean Blue-bloods"") have the psychic ability to phase through solid objects (...aka...""ghosting""...), the taupe-skinned, stocky, and fairly proletarian Tangeans (""Tangean Grounders"") have the psychic ability to project focused force-blasts (...aka...""boom-boom""...). For some reason, the native psychic abilities of both Tangean races are nullified if either race is in close proximity to the other.In hopes of avoiding marriage, Mira invokes a law requiring Fop to submit to a ""Challenge of Worth"". She selects Ranger Academy basic training, but Fop readily agrees an
S01 E17Oct 20, 2000
Panic on Bathyos Oct 20, 2000 The crystals for Crystallic Fusion Generators (the primary power source for almost all Galactic Alliance technology) are mined on the landless ocean planet Bathyos; an anti-air breather movement, hoping to cause an embargo that will force the Galactic Alliance to bow to the will of the Bathyosians, is lead by Gularis, a shark-esque big-wig native of Bathyos. The movement is taking terrorist actions, causing ""accidents"" to happen in the crystal mines, but Team Lightyear is called in as a safety measure, and they uncover Gularis' plans.
S01 E18Oct 22, 2000
Shiv Katall Oct 22, 2000 One of Zurg's Brain Pods (Number 13) goes AWOL, so Zurg hires the Boba Fett-esque bounty hunter Shiv Katall to track him down; Buzz turns out to've been Shiv all this time, in order to make defectors from Planet Z seem to be dead, when they're really in a witness relocation program; Buzz gets found out, so Commander Nebula has to do the Shiv-thing (...which he USED to do, before Buzz came along...), in order to make Zurg regain trust in the existence of Shiv Katall.
S01 E19Oct 23, 2000
Stress Test Oct 23, 2000 Buzz captures ""Pen-like Activation Device"" for Zurg's HYPER-DEATH RAY in a fairly accidental manner (Buzz thinks that it MUST be important and just LOOKS like a pen...everyone else thinks that it MUST be just a pen and that Buzz LOOKS to be going a little loopy...); Buzz is sent to Rhizome to work out overworking-stress with Tubunch. Zurg goes to Rhizome to get a clear shot at Star Command with his HYPER-DEATH RAY, unaware that Buzz is there. Buzz channels his emotions and uses the Rhizome plant-tech to stop Zurg.
S01 E20Oct 24, 2000
A Zoo Out There Oct 24, 2000 Chlorms (Epoch, Era, & Eon) kidnap Galactic Alliance senators for zoo exhibits. Team Lightyear gets nabbed, but Buzz attempts to rescue them. They all end up shipped to product testing due to a lack of co-operation. They escape and return to Star Command
S01 E21Oct 25, 2000
Root of Evil Oct 25, 2000 Zurg mutates Jo-Ad vegetables w/ Transdibulator. Team Lightyear goes to Jo-Ad to investigate the problem. Booster's childhood pal, Buster, was lured into helping Zurg w/ the promise of glory and power (he had been jealous of Booster getting to join Star Command while he was stuck back home on the farm).
S01 E22Oct 26, 2000
Super Nova Oct 26, 2000 Mira ghosts into a Crystallic Fusion Generator Core and becomes a glowing, supercharged, power-speed-junkie. Mira's father warns Mira about how her race can fall prey to such temptation, but Mira has to find out on her own. Eventually, after she attempts to battle Zurg on her own, she realizes that her need for ""re-charging"" is getting worse and worse and is beginning to take control of her life, but she manages to overcome her ""energy addiction"".
S01 E23Oct 27, 2000
Downloaded Oct 27, 2000 XR downloads Star Command Mainframe to prevent the system from crashing (due to Warp Darkmatter using info-stealing techno-ticks); Zurg heists XR in order to gain Star Command classified information; XR uses techno-ticks to help HIM out.
S01 E24Oct 29, 2000
The Plasma Monster Oct 29, 2000 Petra, a senator's daughter, is shipped off to Space Ranger Academy to keep her from Plasma Boy; Booster falls for her; both Petra and Plasma Boy end up in Space Academy.
S01 E25Oct 30, 2000
The Crawling Flesh Oct 30, 2000 Zurg hits Mira & Buzz with gas that melts & melds them into a shoggoth-like creature, then sends them on their way back to Star Command; Mira/Buzz accidentally infect all of Star Command upon their return.
S01 E26Oct 31, 2000
Dirty Work Oct 31, 2000 Cosmo gets K-3000 Uni-appliance for Cosmo's Diner (the diner that Team Lightyear seems to spend too much time at); the K-3000 Uni-appliance is an experimental device that absorbs one's kitchen appliances into itself, and is able to use them all due to its powerful, experimental energy source and its ""liquid steel"" structure (...possibly constructed of nanobots?...very much like a robotic shoggoth, from H.P.Lovecraft's stories...). NOS-4-A2 senses the power within the K-3000 when the Courier delivering it passes close to the abandoned ship that he was residing in, trails after it, and takes control of the K-3000, all of Cosmo's restaurant equipment, and then all of Cosmo's Diner. Team Lightyear is in the process of returning Professor Triffid to his home planet, Rhizome, after a failed attempt on his part to convince Star Command to incorporate ""organic vegegenetic technology"" into their systems, when they receive the distress call from Cosmo. When their usual methods fail to defeat N
S01 E27Nov 1, 2000
The Slayer Nov 1, 2000 After investigating a rash of robo-homocides, Team Lightyear discover that NOS-4-A2's loose on TradeWorld with a self-appointed ""slayer"" on his floating tail -- Savy SL-2, a human orphan that was adopted by a robot couple. NOS-4-A2 had ""vamped"" her adoptive parents, so she decided to step in as a vigilante vampire-robot-slayer (...a la Buffy...). With her assistance, they hunt down NOS-4-A2, fight his horde of enslaved robots, and defeat him, freeing those robots that were in the grip of his dark forces (...including XR who, as usual, was an easy mark for NOS-4-A2...).
S01 E28Nov 2, 2000
The Lightyear Factor Nov 2, 2000 Zurg stumbles upon an alternate dimension where Buzz is evil (...possibly more evil than Zurg, himself...) and has taken over the universe. Zurg has Buzz, the evil one, capture Buzz, the good one, and trap him in the other dimension while they capture Star Command. Buzz's teammates (the good Buzz's, that is) venture into Zurg's Dreadnaught, thinking Buzz has gone insane, but, alas, are captured. Meanwhile, Buzz (the good one) is chased around by the alternate Mira and Booster (the bad ones). He gets a reprieve from the alternate Nebula (who isn't all that bad), who knows that Evil Buzz is working with Zurg. They team up in order to stop the bad guys. Team Lightyear is rescued, Star Command is saved, the Dreadnaught blows up, Zurg and his minions escape, and Evil Buzz is left floating out in space, ready for his revenge in ""Sunquake""...
S01 E29Nov 3, 2000
Clone Rangers Nov 3, 2000 After pilfering samples of Team Lightyear's DNA with mosquito-esque micro-hornets, Zurg clones Team Lightyear; in his rush, he removes them from the maturation tanks before they have a chance to grow up into adults (...as an example of his hurried-ness, he initially planed to instill them with an ""Evil Level"" up in the thousands, but upon realizing that he himself has an ""Evil Level"" of a little over a dozen, he only gives them a level a little under his own...), so Team Lightyear has to deal with evil little kid versions of themselves named Zzub, Feara, and Blister (...after a lot of whining about not having a robot of their own, they get an evil version of XR called ""X-Treme""...). When the eventually realize that due to being clones, the Evil Li'l Team Lightyear has the same character flaws as themselves, Team Lightyear manages to use their ""flaws"" as advantages and win the fight. As a joke tag-line, Zurg attempts the cloning process again at the end of the episode, but this time l
S01 E30Nov 5, 2000
Bunzel Fever Nov 5, 2000 Team Lightyear receives a call from Jo-Ad while in the early phase of an investigative mission (involving a series of thefts); Booster's family is letting Booster know that the bunzel harvest (the primary crop on Jo-Ad, which resembles eggplant) is due. When Booster claims that his duty to the Space Rangers supersedes his farming history, his Grandfather reminds him of the legendary ""Bunzel Fever"", that strikes down any native of Jo-Ad that isn't involved in the bunzel harvest. Booster dismisses the legend and eschews the harvest. When it turns out that the legend isn't a myth, Booster goes through a ""pon-far""-type thing, that is marked by him ""hulking out"" into a large, bellicose form that is determined to harvest bunzels, or anything bunzel-esque (...and since this transformation is also marked by him having spells of mistaking anything roughly ovoid for a bunzel, this gets fairly hazardous for anyone who is rotund and/or in a space ranger suit, XR, and Team Lightyear's ship, #42.
S01 E31Nov 6, 2000
Devolutionaries Nov 6, 2000 Warp Darkmatter goes to the distant planet of Binipinardia to nab a naturally occurring de-evolving gas, guarded for eons by the local Binipinardians (...who happened to take a coffee-break at exactly the wrong time...). When Team Lightyear arrive on Binipinardia, they find the locals to be missing, and the only critters that seem to be around are some semi-sentient lemur-like things. XR is marketing his comic book, breakfast cereal, and adventure series at the time, so when the rest of Team Lightyear go off to look for the missing Binipinardians, he stays behind to look after the ship and to test out some product marketing research on the lemur-like things. Shortly after discovering that Warp Darkmatter has set up a pumping station, to ship the gas to Zurg, the rest of Team Lightyear gets hit by the de-evolving gas; Mira becomes ameboid, Buzz becomes neandertalic, and Booster becomes ankylosaurus-ish. When he finds out what has happened to his comrades (...and that the native Bin
S01 E32Nov 7, 2000
Head Case Nov 7, 2000 Answering a distress call, Team Lightyear discovers a ship under attack by Vulturans (a vaguely bird-like race, that XR recognizes as a race that tends to have a thing against robots). Team Lightyear fights them off...but in the battle, XR flies into a mad rage (gets a little ""blowie-uppy"") and ends up being seriously disassembled. When the LGMs fix him up, they discover signs of metal fatigue. Their report is sent to Commander Nebula, who accidentally spills coffee on the report, smudging the lettering and making it look like ""mental fatigue"". XR is sent off to the resort world of Mahamba 6 for a weekend pass, before having to take a psychiatric evaluation from Star Command's resident psychiatrist, Dr. Animus (...who resembles a native of Binpinardia...). While on Mahamba 6, XR is picked up by a taxi driver who turns out to be XL (...he sent XR a fake ""you have just won a free vacation!!""-flier to XR to lure him in...). XL kidnaps XR and steals his body. XL returns to Star Comm
S01 E33Nov 8, 2000
The Yukari Imprint Nov 8, 2000 Crumford Lorak hides in Senator Banda's fishtank (ambassador from Bathyos) in order to gain and sell Galactic Alliance secrets to the Raenoks at the Luma 9 Station. Booster is talked into purchasing a Yukari-pod; Yukaris, it turns out, are small creatures which take on the form of their ""mother"" (whomever is around the egg in the latter stages of development), but are quite ravenous and reproduce at an astounding rate (...imagine a cross between ""Gremlins"" and tribbles...). Booster's ""fuzzy buddies"" (...the name that the salesman was marketing them under, since his ""demo model"" was one that had taken on a fairly cute form...) ravage 42 and eventually all of Luma 9 Station, when Team Lightyear arrives there in order to help serve as protection for the ambassadorial delegates that are meeting there. Booster's (and thus the Yukari's that were imprinted from him) love for chocolate saves the day, by helping to round up the Yukaris and by using them to then subdue the Raenoks (by dousin
S01 E34Nov 9, 2000
The Shape Stealer Nov 9, 2000 Zurg's latest creation, Project X, a Lurker-like blanket thing that wraps over one and takes control of one, is sent to destroy Buzz Lightyear, etc... The shape stealer first takes over Buzz's next door neighbor, Mr. Hayman, and tries to kill Buzz with hedge clippers, then when Buzz has to fly off to TradeWorld to deal with Lardak Lurdak (a petty criminal), it takes over Ed the Courier and flies off to catch up with him. Once on TradeWorld, the shape stealer takes over a Vulturan, then some piggy-looking bystander, and then a bus driver, all of whom attempt to stab, shoot, or run over Buzz. When the bus crashes, the shape stealer is nowhere to be seen. When Team Lightyear return to Star Command, the shape stealer proves to've been just biding its time. It takes over a LGM (who tries to shoot Buzz), then Booster (who tries to beat up Buzz), and then it just takes over Buzz himself...but without showing any signs of having done so. When Nebula locks Buzz into Star Command's Combat
S01 E35Nov 10, 2000
Star Crossed Nov 10, 2000 When Brain Pod #57 defects to Star Command, Zurg hires Romac, a Tangean Grounder bounty hunter -- and Mira's ex-boyfriend -- to bring him in.
S01 E36Nov 12, 2000
Haunted Moon Nov 12, 2000 Crew on asteroid attempting to deflect comet. Ghost on asteroid seems to be interfering with mission, uttering ""Enola Eno-No!!"" (...with silent ""e""s...). Asteroid crew runs off with 42, leaving Team Lightyear to solve the problem. 50 years ago, Wild Bill Cooley had attempted same mission, but ended up frozen in comet's tail. He was trying to tell them that it was a two-man mission to shunt the comet, but it was coming out in reverse (...IE: ""No-one Alone!!""...). Buzz thaws out Cooley and the two of them shunt the comet.
S01 E37Nov 13, 2000
Stranger Invasion Nov 13, 2000 Zurg tries to take over the planet Roswell, in order to set up a partner planet to Planet Z. Becky contacts Booster, and Team Lightyear shows up to defeat Zurg and save the day. The climactic battle between Zurg and Buzz takes place in the reactor chamber that is powering his self-constructing re-formation of Roswell; when they begin fencing with glowing reactor rods, and when Zurg attempts to throw Buzz off guard by claiming to be his father, the Star Wars references fly fast and furious. The self-constructing machine is thrown into reverse, Roswell is saved, and Zurg is defeated.
S01 E38Nov 14, 2000
Eye of the Tempest Nov 14, 2000 Answering a distress call from a planetoid within ion storm, Buzz encounters Spyro Von Madman, and his daughter, Bonnie. Professor Spyro Von Madman, previously known as Spyro Lepton when he worked with Star Command, was a scientist who had come up with the notion of equipping Space Rangers with a semi-organic energy-absorbing crystalline form, thus resulting in what he called a ""cryborg"" (...very much like the concept behind Star Trek's Borg, but with a crystalline basis), eliminating the need for the Pulsar 400 Envirosuit & Battle Armor that is standard issue for the Space Rangers. Spurned by Star Command, Spyro had gone off into seclusion to further his research. When Spyro had worked for Star Command, he and his daughter were acquaintances with Buzz, and it would seem that Bonnie has been carrying a torch for Buzz all these years. She helps him to escape her father's Cold Slab of Revenge, and to bring her father in. While in jail, Spyro sees Bonnie & Buzz walking together, which dri
S01 E39Nov 15, 2000
Revenge of the Monsters (2) Nov 15, 2000 After being bitten by NOS-4-A2 on the mysterious planet of Canis Lupus, Ranger Ty Parsec is transformed into a Wirewolf (...imagine a form of lycanthropy blended with either Star Trek's Borg techno-virus, or with Transformers' Key to Vector Sigma...) [this whole bit is shown in summary, as if it were reminding us of an earlier episode...except there IS no earlier episode about this as far as I can tell]. Even though the transformation only takes place when on or near Canis Lupus, Commander Nebula decides to boot Parsec from the Space Rangers for his own, and everyone else's, good. While this meeting is wrapping up, NOS-4-A2 and XL show up. They have a chunk of Canis Lupus, that causes Parsec to re-transform into a Wirewolf, and they kidnap the en-cursed Parsec. [...the ""Monster""-bit in the title refers to how Parsec is pretty much a robotic werewolf, XL is pretty much a robotic Frankenstein's monster, and NOS-4-A2 is a robotic vampire...] With Parsec, they oust Zurg from Planet Z
S01 E40Nov 16, 2000
Lone Wolf Nov 16, 2000 At a trial, Team Lightyear seems unable to present the evidence to make charges stick. Buzz relates a story about him losing hope in the system 20 years ago. He had quit Star Command after one of his first missions (...so, if one graduates Star Command when one is a little under 20 years old, then that'd make Buzz a bit under 40 yrs old...) and his ""bike"" [very Lobo-esque looking] broke down on a distant arcadium gas-farming planet. He helped a widow, Zoey, and her son stand up against the local gas-baron, Vartkes. After the tale, he presents the disrupter rifle evidence to the judge and they win the case.
S01 E41Nov 17, 2000
Planet of the Lost Nov 17, 2000 Ship 42 scopes out area where ships have vanished. Upon scanning the planet, they detect large amounts of technology on the planet, but upon landing it seems quite barren. Flying manta-like shriekers attack Team Lightyear's technology, leaving them stranded and defenseless. Roaming the countryside, they encounter a man named Flint who runs a town of castaways from spaceship-wrecks. Upon investigation, Flint turns out to be a renegade work robot (gamma series construction robot), who built the robotic shriekers in order to strand organics on the planet, so that he could order THEM around as revenge for his time spent in forced labor (...as a stock-boy...). Team Lightyear shut down the subterranean shrieker construction plant that Flint had built, and defeat Flint, freeing the hapless castaways.
S01 E42Nov 19, 2000
Revenge of the Raenoks Nov 19, 2000 When Booster is kidnapped by the Raenoks, in order to conduct a prisoner trade for Varg (XR is sent to guard Varg, who quickly escapes and takes XR to Raenok), Buzz & Mira fly off to save him w/ a newly developed cloaking device that can render 42 and/or its crew invisible. While attempting to sneak into the Raenok prison, Mira and Buzz spot Booster's folks, who heard about their son's capture and decided to attempt to save him. This allows the invisible Mira & Buzz to get through the first line of defense, while the capture of the Munchauser's provides a distraction. When they're attempting to figure out how to get through the second line of defense, Becky and her father, the Sheriff from Roswell, arrive (having also heard the news of Booster's capture). The capture of the Roswelleans provides yet another distraction. Finally, the LGMs also decide to help, which almost allows for Mira & Buzz to free Booster (...and XR, and Booster's parents, and the Roswelleans...), but they end
S01 E43Nov 20, 2000
The Starthought Nov 20, 2000 While Team Lightyear is conducting mock-combat training with Team Rocket (...headed by Rocket Crocket...), Crocket goads Mira into getting herself tagged. King Nova presents Mira with an invention of his, the Starthought; a small spacecraft guided by one's thoughts. Mira has doubts about it until she realizes that it'd really bother Crocket to see her zipping around in such a spiffy ship. While testing the Starthought, Mira runs into some tourists, who are actually Warp Darkmatter, along with one of Zurg's Brain Pods & a Grub, on a reconnaissance mission to scope out any new Star Command developments. Zurg sets up a fake raid on a Gulgarian mining outpost, in order to lure Mira, and the Starthought, into his clutches. After successfully losing the Starthought to Zurg (...success for Zurg, dismal failure for Mira...), Mira goes to Cosmo's Diner to sulk, but Team Lightyear & King Nova show up and convince Mira to go out and re-nab the Starthought back from Zurg. They sneak into Zurg
S01 E44Nov 21, 2000
Millennial Bugs Nov 21, 2000 Zurg nabs an exhibit of an extinct species of large, Alien (as per the movies)-esque insects, planning to resurrect the species in order to help him in (...what else...) take over the galaxy. Dr. Ozma Furbanna is roped into helping Zurg revive Alien-style bugs, by having her scientific morals preyed upon. Zurg sics the bugs on Capital Planet. Before things can get too out of hand, Team Lightyear discovers that the bugs can be stopped by belly-tickling (...it over-rides their nervous system...), and with that they manage to save the day.
S01 E45Nov 23, 2000
Conspiracy Nov 23, 2000 The Galactic Alliance President is about to sign a ""historic peace initiative"" in the Senate chamber, when Commander Nebula narrowly saves her from a sniper's blast. Thousands of witnesses see Buzz fleeing the scene. The next morning, Buzz gets his morning paper and is about to do the crossword, when a SWAT team breaks in. (Buzz is completely cool, even giving them tips on their technique. Then they grab him.) We learn that the Gargantian Militants have constructed new robot-vehicles similar to the Flash Fleming android they used in earlier episode Inside Job. Now, however, they have ones duplicating Buzz and others.First, the Gargantians pose as a doctor to give Buzz a negative psych evaluation. Then, they pose as the judge as Buzz's trial to insure he is convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Finally, they take a space aboard the prison transport as a convict and try to get Buzz. This last effort causes a crash and Buzz escapes.Commander Nebula promotes Mira to team leade

At Large on a Small Planet Nov 24, 2000 Ambassador Major (from Gargantia) attempts to open Pizza Planet franchise on Gargantia, but the Militants oppose it (as usual). Buzz and Booster have to reduce themselves to their size to help out, but the Militants get their hands on the size-changing device and make themselves ""regular"" size.

Sunquake Nov 26, 2000 Shiv Katall is stealing numerous high-tech devices; this seriously confuses Team Lightyear, since Buzz and Commander Nebula were the only ones to take on the guise of Shiv. Shiv turns out to be actually Buzz Lightyear; the EVIL Buzz Lightyear (...it only makes sense that he would've come up with the whole Shiv idea in HIS universe as well...). When Buzz (...the evil one...) flies too close to Capital Planet's sun for 42's scanners to detect his location, Mira and Buzz (...the good one...) fly down in Star Skimmers to try to find him. They discover that Buzz (...the evil one...) is working with Gravitina, setting up another device that can boost her psycho-gravimetric powers to such a degree that she can cause ""sun-quakes"" that can launch solar plasma-balls towards Capital Planet, Star Command Headquarters, and just about any planet whose solar system is nearby (...Tangea is mentioned as a possible target...). The first volley of plasma-balls are prevented from wiping out Star Comma

First Missions Nov 27, 2000 Professor Reddschift, Mira, Booster, and XR are pinned down by Zurg's hornets, who are attempting to kidnap Prof. Reddschift. The Prof. is worried that Buzz won't be able to arrive in time to save him from capture. To try to buck up his spirits, Mira relates her first encounter with Buzz, back before she enlisted in Space Ranger Academy. King Nova had been nabbed by Zurg and his Hyper-Hornet in the midst of a conference attempting to convince Tangea to join the Galactic Alliance, but Mira & Buzz managed to defeat Zurg, save King Nova, and convince Tangea to join the Alliance (and Mira to join the Space Rangers). This proves to be less than impressive to Reddschift. Booster then relates HIS first run in with Buzz. Zurg had attempted to take over Jo-Ad with his Mega-Hornet, thus cutting off food supplies to most of the Galactic Alliance. But with Buzz's timely arrival, and with Booster's strength, they managed to stave off Zurg. Again, Reddschift isn't impressed. XR then tells H

Large Target Nov 29, 2000 Team Lightyear routinely busts some arms smugglers, who are working for Keno Kentrix (a Bathyosian night-club/casino owner on Mahambas 6, who is arranging some arms deals for Zurg...and who sounds a whole lot like Frank Sinatra...). After their successful mission, they co-incidentally set out for Mahambas 6 for some vacation-time. Due to a ban on robots in the casino, XR disguises himself as Booster in order to gamble; gamble he does, and pretty much cleans out the house, much to Keno's ire. Keno puts a bounty of 10,000,000 Uni-Bucks on Booster's head, which prompts Keno's bodyguards, Warp Darkmatter, Lardak Lurdak, a handful of Gargantian Militants, two Tangean Grounders, and a few other bounty hunters to try to gun down Booster. XR re-disguises himself as Booster and turns himself in. When Booster arrives to save XR, Keno (and all of the assorted riff-raff) decides to just wipe out the both of them. Piqued by the sound of gun-fire, Buzz steps in (with a triple sun-burnt Mira) t
War and Peace and War While Buzz is testing out the LGMs latest invention (...some sort of space-scooter...), the LGMs are struck by a need to ""heed the heed"". As if hypnotized, they all commandeer a ship and fly off. While Zurg is attempting to dispatch hornets to defeat Buzz and capture the space-scooter thing, the same thing happens to the Grubs. The Grubs and the LGMs arrive on a distant planet (...Buzz and Zurg catch up in a few minutes...), where a giant, intangible, glowing head named Guzelian the Alien (...a member of the Heed, an advanced race that has transcended physical form...) tells them that they must work to bring peace throughout the galaxy. The Grubs return to Planet Z, the LGMs return to Star Command, and both of them then proceed to dis-assemble any weapons or armaments that they have, in order to issue in this new age of peace. After a charming little ditty written and performed by Mr. Idle, entitled ""Let's Make Peace!"", Buzz grows wary of Guzelian's intentions. He tracks down the
