Beneath the city streets, deep in the bowels of the sewer system, Splinter is less than pleased with the Turtles when he encounters them lounging around the "TV Room," rather than practicing their daily katas (martial arts/ninja exercises.) The Turtles lamely suggest that with Shredder out of the way (it seems he and Krang were sent to the Earth's core in a previous episode), they deserve a vacation. Splinter suggests that they have no proof that Shredder and Krang are "vanquished" and that there is still plenty of other crime/criminals to be fought. Meanwhile, miles below the Earth's surface, rests the Technodrome. Inside, Shredder "whines" to Krang about when they will take the Technodrome to the surface.

Meanwhile, Shredder is sweating from the heat, as Krang "chews him out" for his failure to retrieve the necessary components to repair the refrigeration units.

Krang informs Shredder of the instability of the magnet, and warns him not to overload it, but he is all but ignored by his partner. The Turtles soon learn of Shredder's scheme, and, after managing to acquire a pair of gravity boots, are able to fend off the invading foot soldiers. Donatello notices that the birds are still flying, since they aren't bound by the laws of gravity, the magnet's power doesn't affect them, Donatello suggests to his bros that they head for the Turtle Blimp.

Meanwhile, down in the Technodrome, while watching April O'Neil's coverage of the Mardi Gras parade, Krang learns that the priceless Star of Brazil diamond, is, in fact, the long lost element of Impervium - a substance found only in Dimension X and was "sent" to earth as part of an experiment.

Breaking into the lab where the computer is situated, the villain re-programs the c.p.u to capture TURTLES rather than retrieve litter... However, things go awry when all the trucks pick up are any non-mutant turtle they lay their eyes upon..including the last of a soon to be extinct race of turtles, just about to give birth..

The villain hopes to use this technique to control the world's prime movers and shakers. Giving him undisputed mastery of the planet. To test the device, Shredder creates a copy of Michelangelo, but during the experiment, Rocksteady and Bebop's usual incompetence manages to cause the device to malfunction.

Despite interference from the Turtles, Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady successfully install an energy transmitter inside the Power Relay Station and escape unharmed. Back at the lair, the Turtles argue as to whose fault it might be that Shredder and company got away again. Splinter suggests that they spend less time trying to get Shredder and more time doing good things, which confuses the Turtles. Meanwhile, over at the Hall of Science, Krang activates his new dimensional portal, thanks to Shredder's installation of the Energy Transmitter at the Power Relay Station, giving him access to Dimension X. After Donatello's equipment registers a power surge emanating from the Hall of Science, they set out to investigate, only to find the place empty and the Dimensional Portal turned on.

So while Medusa lures the Turtles into a fight at the hydroelectric plant, Hi-Tech successfully leads the Technogangsters back to the Neutronium mine, where they are free to continue their work.

Carter, April and the Turtles investigate a break-in at the Antique Timepiece Museum. Convinced that Dregg is responsible, but not sure why, the Turtles discover a clue on a wall display of two rows of clocks. Above the top row are the letters "LT," and above the bottom row are the letters "LL". Donatello deduces that they are "Longitude" and "Latitude" and, after adding up the numbers on the clocks and checking a map, he announced the location - the NorthWest Steel Mill. The heroes decide to investigate to see if it is one of Dregg's traps. But it is not Dregg, instead they find a costume character named CHRONOS - Master of Time and King of the Clocktower.

With that said, Carter and the Turtles team up with April to "get the goods" on Dregg. At the location of the Star Shield construction site, our heroes are amazed by the sight of this "cross between a flying saucer and a battleship".

Saturday, November 4th, 1995
Once again, Dregg broadcasts his message to the citizens of Earth about the evil mutant Turtles and, once again, the Turtles are ticked off. In fact, the TMNT are so ticked off that they mutate on the spot and, in broad daylight, attack a squad of TechnoGangsters, scaring the local citizenry. This of course confirms the citizens' worst fears about the Turtles as promoted by Dregg. Back at the lair, after the fight scene and the escape scene, the Turtles complain about their inability to control their mutations. Splinter suggests that it is because they are unable to control their "deepest rage" and that they may have to "sacrifice more than they can possibly imagine" in order to finally defeat Dregg. Meanwhile in outer space onboard the Dreggnaught, an ALIEN SCOUT delivers the Vortex Crystal(which has the power to warp space itself) to Dregg. The alien crimelord is pleased, for with the power of this crystal, he will be able to bring his entire armada (which has been scattered across
