(The Ninja are inside a rocket ship in space.)
Jay: Is this the greatest thing ever or what?
Kai: Where are you? We're trapped in space and you...where did you go?
Jay: Guys, we're in space. I thought this is stuff only Fritz Donnegan gets to enjoy.
Lloyd: Fritz is from a comic book, dude. This is real!
Jay: Well, you got me hooked on the character. Would you lighten up and not step on your dreams of being a real Starfarer just yet?
Kai: But there's no access to the rest of the ship. The only way out is through the same airlock we came in.
Zane: And if my memory banks serve correct, space has a way of taking one's breath away, in the negative sense.
(The Nindroids pilot the rocket.)
(Min-Droid sets the time for five minutes.)
Zane: Enjoy it while you can, Jay, because in five minutes, the entire ship is scheduled to lighten up. The supplemental boosters are set to detach.
Kai: Uh, I'm a Ninja, not an astronaut. What does that mean?
Zane: The portion of the ship we are currently stationed will soon detach and we will be abandoned in space with it.
Kai: We read you loud and clear.
Garmadon: They're alive! They're alive.
Nya: (Simultaneously) Whoa! Yes!
Wu: Good to hear you boys. We're going to get you home safe. P.I.X.A.L. was able to find the blueprints for the rocket. You need to escape the cargo hold before it's too late. Near the front of the ship is an A2 storage compartment. Inside are emergency spacesuits.
Cole: That will be a doozy. We can't get the spacesuits unless we go outside. Problem is, we can't go outside without the spacesuits. Any other suggestions?
Garmadon: (He whispers and covers his microphone.) They are completely out of their element. Even if they get through this, what chance do we have of getting them home?
Kai: Uh, we can still hear you.
Lloyd: Yeah, we could really use some encouraging words right about now.
Wu: If you cannot change your circumstances, change yourself.
Kai: Hm, can anyone else figure that one out?
Jay: His wisdom usually takes a while to set in. But we don't have a while!
P.I.X.A.L.: Zane, you're the only one who can survive outside the ship.
Zane: She's right. I'm the only one who doesn't need oxygen. I must go alone.
Kai: Go get 'em, Zane.
(Zane grunts as he's almost blown away.)
Cryptor: Approaching comet. Prepare to disengage supplemental boosters.
Zane: (He slips.) Aah! No. No. No. No! Come on, Zane. You can do this. You can get back. Ice! (He uses his Ice to return to the ship. After entering the password, he finds the spacesuits.)
Lloyd: Come on, Zane, where are you?
Cryptor: Booster separation on my command. Five, four, three, two, disengage.
Lloyd: We made it! (Garmadon, Nya, P.I.X.A.L., and Wu cheer.)
Nya: Yeah! All right! Yay!
Lloyd: We have our spacesuits and found one way to change ourselves. At least now we can stay on this ride a bit longer.
Nya: All right, to commandeer the ship, you have to get to the cockpit. You'll find an access hatch just ahead of you.
Cole: You know what's also ahead? A desolate void of nothingness. If any one of us falls off...
Kai: We'll take it slow. Together. (They scream as the ship briefly accelerates.)
Jay: I can't wait to see the expressions on the faces of those metal chrome domes when they find out we stowed away onboard.
Cole: They're Nindroids, nimrod, they don't have expressions.
Jay: Oh, yeah. (Cryptor, hearing this, grunts.) Well, Zane has expressions.
Kai: Zane's not like them. Do we really have to go over this right now?
Jay: It's just so quiet, I'm only trying to fill the space. Get it? (Laughs.) Space.
Cryptor: Get rid of them. (He brings up a communication device.) The Ninja have stowed away.
Pythor: Stay the course for the Golden Weapons. They must be getting help. We'll track down who's aiding them.
Cole: So much for our surprise attack. Look out! (The Nindroids laugh as they fired at them. Jay stole one of their weapons, making his team cheer for him.)
Lloyd: Wow! Cool!
Cole: (Simultaneously) All right!
Jay: Not Jay. Fritz Donnegan! Fear isn't a word where I come from.
Lloyd: Oh, man. I'm sorry for introducing him to that.
Kai: Don't be. If we can't change our circumstances, that's one way to change yourself. Fire!
Cole: Hope we don't need that.
Cole: Ninja—Uh, oh! Aah! (He tried to use Spinjitzu, but floated away instead.)
Cole: Guys! A little help, please?
Zane: We can't use our Spinjitzu in zero gravity. There's too little resistance.
Lloyd: Too little? I'd say the resistance is bit more than we can handle at the moment.
Jay: Haven't you heard, scourge? No free rides!
Kai: Jay! Don't let Cole get away! Ugh. Fritz! Save him!
Jay: I'm on it, Commander Kiflin. I just blew you away. Haha.
Cole: Help! (The boosters activated, leaving Cole.)
Jay: Fritz Donnegan to the rescue! (He grabs a rope and goes after Cole.)
Jay: Gotcha! Next time, don't get carried away.
Cole: Ah, thanks. I owe you one.
Jay: Okay. Stay away from Nya.
Cole: Maybe a different one.
Cryptor: (They approach the comet.) The Golden Weapons. Prepare for entry. But take us through the comet's tail.
Nindroid: General, the comet's letting off a high volume of debris.
Cryptor: Do it!
Wu: You are almost to the cockpit. Just make sure to continue your course. And focus on the task ahead.
Kai: Sensei? I'm getting interference. I can't hear you.
Kai: Cryptor's steering us into the tail of the comet. Find cover! (An asteroid breaks off their cover.)
Cole: Cover? What cover? (Some Nindroids go inside the rocket as the rest huddles in fear.)
Jay: Hey! Haha! They do have expressions. Ha. (An asteroid hits more Nindroids.) Never mind.
(The rest of the team realizes the Ninja can't hear them.)
Wu: They can't hear us because of the asteroid shower.
P.I.X.A.L.: They must be preparing to land.
Garmadon: But we have to warn them about what else is on that comet.
Nya: Uh, yeah, we're not alone either.
Pythor: The transmissions are coming from here.
Overlord: Seize the entire building. This place will play a crucial role to our greater agenda once they return with the Golden Weapons.
Pythor: Do it!
Wu: We must go.
Garmadon: But we have to warn them. We can't just leave them without telling them what else is out there.
Wu: Grab everything you can.
Nya: This way. (She nods toward a hole in the window.)
(The Ninja are about to land.)
Kai: Looks like we're coming in hot. (Lloyd loses his grip.)
Jay: Lloyd! (They form a chain to catch him.)
Cole: Hold on!
(Pythor reaches the top floor.)
Pythor: Huh. The cowards have fled.
Overlord: But Arcturus has landed. Prepare the factory. The Golden Master will rise on their return!
Garmadon: (He and the others are hiding on a window cleaning platform.) He's vulnerable. We must fight him now.
Wu: No. Not until we get the Ninja home safe. We must get back in contact. We need to find somewhere we can't be found.
Garmadon: I know just the place. (Overborg started to cut the platform's rope.)
Nya: They found us. Don't lose those computer components. We need them all.
Wu: Hurry. Use our momentum. Together. Now! (He jumps and almost falls, but Garmadon catches him.)
Garmadon: I've got you, brother.
Nya: Great. Now we'll never get out of here.
P.I.X.A.L.: Leave that to me.
Pythor: Get them, you imbeciles!
Nya: (P.I.X.A.L. summons a Hover-Copter.) Good thinking! You're still linked into the security forces.
P.I.X.A.L.: Now let's get out of here.
Garmadon: I hope the city can survive without us.
Wu: So too the Ninja, I pray.
(The Ninja crashed into the comet, slightly damaging the ship.)
Jay: Ha! We survived!
Lloyd: Nya, are you there? Dad? Wu? Anyone?
Kai: Maybe the others didn't make it.
Zane: They're all gone.
Jay: They must have already left for the weapons. Quick, let's take the ship before they get back. Argh! They took the launch key.
Kai: Are you telling me this entire ship starts up with a simple little key?
Cole: Come on, tell me one of you knows how to hot wire this thing?
Lloyd: Hey, guys. Come and see this! They took the lunar rovers. Looks like they left tracks to follow. (They take the last rover.)
Jay: Argh! Move your gas tank, I can't see.
Kai: Ugh, your blaster is in my rib.
Jay: Ugh, that's not a blaster, that's my leg.
Cole: Zane, you're squeezing my arm.
Zane: I thought that was the accelerator.
Kai: (They hide behind a boulder.) This must be where the Golden Weapons landed.
Cole: There's the weapons.
Kai: And there's the key.
Nindroid: Shiny. (He reaches towards it.)
Cryptor: No, don't. (The Nindroid disintegrates, making the others back away.) Only the Overlord can withstand the power of all the weapons combined. No one directly touches it.
Jay: Those are the Golden Weapons all right.
Zane: (A beetle climbs on Zane's hand.) Hello there, little friend.
Jay: Oh, would you look at that? Can you believe it? It's an extraterrestrial lifeform.
Cole: It's a bug. And it's not what's important right now.
Jay: Oh, there's so much we could learn from it. So much we could teach it. I'm gonna call him Glowy. Oh look, Glowy can fly. How cute.
Wu: You must not disturb the alien life. They are very dangerous. Can you hear me?
Kai: I couldn't make that out, Sensei. What did you say?
Wu: The alien life. They're very dangerous.
Nya: A few years ago scientists studied a meteorite that had fallen to Ninjago. It mostly came from the same comet you're on. Inside the meteorite, there were the fossilized remains of some kind of parasite that feeds on metal alloys.
Zane: They tickle. (He and Jay laugh as they're covered in more beetles.)
Jay: Silly Glowy.
Zane: (A beetle bites him.) Ow.
Nya: Do you hear me? Whatever you do, don't come in contact with the parasites. They eat through metal!
Zane: Argh! They're eating through my exoskeleton!
Jay: Bad, Glowy! Bad! (The Ninja scream, revealing their hiding spot.)
Kai: They're on me too!
Jay: They're everywhere!
Cryptor: The gold must remain intact. Back to the ship!
Zane: What do we do? Any ideas, guys?
Cole: Space. Why did we come to space? If I could change any circumstance, I'd change ever coming here in the first place.
Lloyd: If you can't change your circumstances, change your mind.
Jay: Now's not the time to be quoting Wu.
Lloyd: No, I finally see what he means. This is just like the Starteeth. Come on, I've got an idea. (They get back on the rover and chases the Nindroids while the beetles follow them.)
Cryptor: Get them!
Lloyd: Sensei meant instead of focusing on how wrong things are, focus on what's right. We have to think positive. Those parasites aren't just a menace, they're a weapon. Attack! (The beetles distract the Nindroids, destroying some of their rovers.)
Cryptor: Go! (The driver whimpers.) What? (He kicks him out and takes the wheel.)
Kai: Now let's go get that launch key.
All but Lloyd: Ninja, go! (They defeat some Nindroids.)
Kai: Ninja, go! You can keep your gold. (He steals the key.) I got it! Let's get outta here. Ninja, go! (The Ninja cheer.)
Jay: We're home free! (They cheer and head back to the rocket, but found it swarming with beetles.)
Lloyd: The rocket. It's...destroyed.
Jay: Then how are we gonna get home?
Cole: There's no way back.
Cryptor: You're not the only ones who can adapt! So long, Ninja! (They use rocket boosters to carry the gold back to Ninjago.)
Kai: They got away. We failed. I repeat, they got the Golden Weapons.
Nya: Are you on the rocket? Can you stop them?
Kai: No. The ship is destroyed. We're not coming home.
