In this episode, Maxwell McGrath, Steel (Who are already as Max Steel in his Turbo Base Mode), and the N-Tek agents are in a snowy place, where they find a starship, which was the one Water Elementor was talking about in Hard Water. Then Commander Forge Ferrus tells them that they (Max and Steel) wanted to be part of N-Tek, so then now they are. So then Forge told Max and Steel that there is a force field. So then when Max was about to turn into Turbo Strength Mode, he is stopped by Forge and then he tells him that Steel will go. Then Katherine 'Kat' Ryan, explains to Steel that he has the technology to cross the force field without any serious damage. So then Steel goes and then he crosses the force field. Then Forge orders Steel to keep going. So then Steel goes in and then there is someone spying on him from far away.
So then Steel is inside the starship and looks for some button. Then he sees a room and then he sees a button. Then the force field is disactivated and then the N-Tek agents entered the starship. Then when they entered, someone keeps spying on them.
The N-Tek agents are inside, and they later separate to look for something. So then Max enters and he looks inside the starship. Then Jefferson Smith, who has a detector and then he detected the object they were looking for. Then he commands the N-Tek agents he was with that it was that way. So they are searching, until they found what they were looking for.

So then the N-Tek agents put a bomb inside the starship and then everyone leave, but then Steel stays there staring at the starship, but then he is rescued by Max and then he asked him what he was doing. Then he told him that if he could know more about his past, like where he came from and what he is.
Then Max and Steel were talking and heading to the N-Tek R.O.C.C, but then Forge tell them they cannot go in and that they can use their Turbo Flight Mode to go to N-Tek. So the tanks leave and then Max and Steel turned into Turbo Flight Mode, as ordered by Forge. So then they flew away in the sky.
The N-Tek R.O.C.C are on their way and also Troy Winter and his Henchmen (They were riding motorcycles), who wanted to steal the package from N-Tek. Then Troy and his Henchmen are hidden behind a mountain, and then Troy released a chain with spikes on it. So then when the N-Tek R.O.C.Cs passed, Forge noticed them, but the driver wouldn't stop and then the Tanks exploded. There were also explosives in the mountains, which exploded and fell on the other R.O.C.C. So then Troy and his gang kept going and then they were attacked by N-Tek agents, but then the N-Tek agents were defeated by Troy's Super Sonic Gun.
Inside the N-Tek R.O.C.C, Forge and Jefferson tried to open the door and Kat and an N-Tek agent secured the package. So then Troy got on top of the Tank and then he got his Super Sonic Gun aimed on the top and Forge inside the Tank had his gun aiming the top, but inside the Tank. Then Troy shot and then the N-Tek agents were defeated. Then Troy entered and stole the package.

Then Max and Steel were bragging that someone didn't let two people enter with power. Then Forge told them that they were right. Then Max asked what was inside the package and then Forge didn't want to tell them.
Somewhere in Copper Canyon, Troy and his Henchmen enter their secret hideout and then Vin and Dwayne said that when they get the reward from the boss, they will want to go to Las Vegas. But then Troy Winter tells them that they both will have the 20% of the money, then that he has a surprise from them in his basement. When they entered, they were locked in and they were chased by Troy's Pet Tiger, which was a Black Tiger. Then Troy told them that the Tiger had not ate nothing for days.

Then Steel calls the Turbo Cycle and then they still follow Troy then Troy is called by Dredd, asking him if he had the missing part. Then Troy told him he did, but that he was followed by someone. Then Dredd knew who it was, and then he told Troy that he will bring him company. So then Max is still following Troy and then they stop. Then the ground cracks and then Fire Elementor and Earth Elementor appeared. Then Troy leaves to send the part and then Max is defeated and trapped by The Elementors.
At Troy's house, Jason and the THI Worker are there. So Troy sends them the part and they give Troy the reward. Then Jason says that it is very powerful, (And Berto finally finds signal of the package) so then Troy later wanted to keep it for himself, but Jason was angry and he told him that they made a deal, but Troy ignored Jason and then he electrocuted Jason and took the package for himself.

Then Max defeats Fire and he turns off, but Earth was being attacked, but escaped. Then Fire was captured and then Steel saw the orb, which looked like the shape of an Ultralink. Then Forge informs to Max and Steel that Berto found out where the package was at.
At Troy's house, Troy opens the package and then a hologram of Miles Dredd appears. Then it told Troy that if he was listening to it, then that meant he was betrayed by Troy. Then he told him he will pay the deeds. Then the package exploded and then Troy fell.
