Go To

Aja and Krel must take on Morando's super weapon, Omen.

Tropes in this episode:

  • Bittersweet Ending: Omen is defeated, all of Akiridion-5 knows the royals are alive, Lucy and Rick's programming is uncorrupted, and Lieutenant Zadra is now on Earth to help protect the siblings. However, Vex has been captured by the Zeron Alpha, Mothership is probably impossible to fix now, Eli gets a picture of Aja and Krel's alien forms, and Morando is coming to Earth.

  • Dystopian Edict: Back on Akiridion-5, public worship of the Tarrons, not kneeling towards authority and disobeying them are all considered violations of law. Oddly enough, they allow a first warning before things get particularly ugly.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Omen had corrupted Lucy and Ricky's programming after hacking into the ship. Now they are an incredibly deadly force that could run circle around the incredibly skilled Zadra. They get better after Omen is destroyed.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: To make up for his betrayal, Vex crashes Zadra's ship into the Mothership, but not before apologizing to Aja and Krel.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Morando has the fight between Omen and the royal siblings broadcasted back to Akiridion-5 so the people can see the royals being killed. What actually ends up happening however is the siblings defeat Omen and use the broadcast to give the people of Akiridion-5 hope and inspire them to resist Morando even more.

  • Hostage Situation: Omen stores the cores of the King and Queen in its stomach compartment so Aja will have a much harder time fighting it.
  • Irony: Aja banned Vex from ever returning home for his treachery. In the end, he's the only one that manages to get off Earth because the surviving Zeron captures him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In order to get Eli off his back about the aliens in Arcadia, which Steve knows is true but swore to keep secret, he tells Eli "Pics or it didn't happen." He immediately realizes his mistake when Eli runs off to do exactly that.
