Mitchell Lomken and his butler Eliot Brownside discuss their land’s culture’s fall away from the Minshan faith, and the history that has led up to this fall. As they are doing so, Eliot informs Mitchell of the murder plot that went into the deaths of his parents and siblings. The two of them flee on a jet for Antia with assassins in hot pursuit. Whilst on the plane, Mitchell starts reading from his father’s literary work The Inktactillia, which paints a dramatic picture of the creation of Outer Reality, and ultimately, the Inktacto star system. The two of them are to arrive in the state of Kentalky to show the surviving works of the late Gordon Lomken to Cal Bacon, a man interested in building a Young Mantith Creation Science center. Meanwhile, the Rubblindo family of Pencils prepares for dinner as Arnold Rubblindo arrives home.
2 What Must Happen David Stiefel - July 7, 2009 - - 102 -
Arnold argues with his family about becoming an astronaut, and states his concerns over his girlfriend's suspicious disappearance. Mitchell and Eliot apply for refugee status and seek a cabin. Emperor Alhox and General Bluque discuss using imperial war to end the threat Astrabolo. Arnold seeks to know if his mother can accept those mechanized against her will, but she refuses to give an answer. Bluque holds a secret meeting with a "Mystery Wanderer," who assures him that everything is going according to plan and that what is about to happen is “what must happen.” Bluque maintains suspicions, but plays along with the Wanderer's game. Arnold leaves early in the morning to inspect his new campus and search for Pinkella. He soon finds himself in a near-fatal car accident. Rhodney gives Oceanoe his backstory. Rhodney Antilles, a red Up-Pen and one of Arnold's unlikely friends from high school, has a falling out with the Daredevils 4YU company that he and his friend Harvey Leadfort are a part of, and tells Harvey to be wary of Veronica as he doesn't trust her. Rhodney abandons the association and is recruited to the Voyager project by the Xyliens. In the present day, shortly after moving in to their new cabin, Mitchell and Eliot are ambushed by more assassins.
3 Outcasts David Stiefel - - - - 103 -
Arnold is abducted by Ted and Yonber, who take him to the underground city labs and transform him into the "mechie" model of “Performance-Enhanced, Xylien-built, T-standard-Engineered Librion,” or “PEXTEL.” Oceanoe Hendelbin recounts his past to Rhodney, as the latter suggests its only fair they both know where each other came from. Oceanoe replies that he joined the Voyager program to prove to his brother Obandy that he is not about to let his expulsion from the pop band Sketchcamp be the end of him. Alhox and Bluque go over their plans regarding the invasion of Port Metaball, as well as what order to conduct which campaign in. Alhox struggles to remember his past as the warrior who defeated the Drismabon King Melchar. Arnold wakes up and panics escaping the lab. Xylien agents are assembled to recapture him. Captain Nonpriel warns Maraldos, a spy hiding on Neothode, of rumors of a diplomacy scheme in effect by the Xylien Society. Mitchell and Eliot finally get to meet Cal Bacon; but while Eliot quickly gets himself involved in discussion with Cal, Mitchell is distracted by the plight of Ronda Moleary, who will die without a surgery she cannot afford. Arnold calls home amid panic, and his mother refuses to believe that it is Arnold that called her. He soon learns of his new-found abilities at a local restaurant. He begs his friend Katrina, a worker at the restaurant, to help him when the agents catch up. But she betrays and deactivates him instead. Mitchell and Eliot observe the sky, and note that the Muellex's behavior is unnatural. They consider it a sign that Stationery beings will soon visit Mantith. Meanwhile on Neothode, we are introduced to Neone Delft.

14 No Diplomat's Land David Stiefel - - - - 114 -
Marlack and Neone attempt to remain professional, as they feel their quickly-acquired attraction to one another is childish given they've only known each other a few days. The new team is sent to the town of Storlig for initial meetings, but those meetings are quickly interrupted by YPL firepower. Marlack is kidnapped by a rogue street gang, leading Neone to feel guilty about being rude to him when they first met. Rhodney questions Pextel's abilities as a leader. Neone, Rhodney, Pextel, and Oceanoe finally resolve to attempt Marlack's rescue. They end up rescuing him from Cybomec when the latter beats them to the gang's hideout.

15 Distressed David Stiefel - - - - 115 -
Pinkella picks up an indiscernible signal from inside the Bindaf 3000. Upon Erasaxo's suggestion, she takes her findings to the Rilage Space Center for interpretation. The other Voyagers take a brief break from running away from Cybomec, but soon find themselves in a cat-and-mouse game against Captain Nonpriel. Pextel soon strategizes a way for his team to defeat Nonpriel in a fight, allowing the Voyagers a greater chance to escape. When the plan succeeds, Rhodney declares that Pextel has truly earned the right to be the Bindaf 3000's captain.

Realizing his mistake, Pextel decides that he and Rhodney need to enter the Rilage Space Center and rescue their friends. Cybomec takes advantage of this, and takes Neone and Oceanoe prisoner. Pinkella attempts to alert the Britophondian National Guard, but they hang up on her when a YPL faction begins launching a full-frontal assault on another town. Nonpriel returns to Bluque in defeat, and is sent on a brief vacation. Cybomec further exploits the situation, looking for ways to strain the courage of every Voyager while separating them and gaining assistance from various Markerterioni droids that follow him into Rilage. Defeated and trapped inside of Cybomec's deadly, hijacked space center, the Voyagers struggle for the courage to keep fighting. Meanwhile, Katrina has a flashback and begins worrying about her mother Terra. Garret convinces her that it is unwise to pursue Terra; as it would lend la-Qualda opportunities to capture Katrina, Terra, or both.
17 A Glimmering Hope David Stiefel - - - - 117 -
Cybomec begins explaining his plans to a traumatized Neone, torturing her and Oceanoe while continuing to send death droids after the Voyagers. They begin channeling their faith and memories to find courage in the face of Cybomec and his droids. A mysterious vigilante, known only as the Eveninger, decides to risk himself battling Cybomec when the Guard is distracted. With the Eveninger's help, the Voyagers are able to get close enough to power down the damaged Cybomec and remove his S-chip. The Eveninger dies from internal injuries after enduring several electrical jolts from Cybomec. As backup Rilage personnel arrive, a funeral for the Voyagers' rescuer is arranged. In spite Neone's wishes, his identity is revealed. Bluque's attack on Port Metaball ends in failure; and Admiral Abberwadd suggests increasing focus on Whixtitout. Neone and Marlack begin discussing their feelings for each other along the hillside where the Eveninger is buried, when they have an encounter with a panicked and desperate Whixtitian. Pinkella and Erasaxo finally get the distress signal decrypted, but it's too late. The Whixtitian attempts to warn the Voyagers of something important, but is assaulted and arrested by Nabijab police before he gets the chance. Neone resolves that the Voyagers must negotiate for his release if they wish to learn any useful information.
