  • Coming Soon


Earth is faced with mass destruction from a 10-ton "spaceberg", which threatens to ignite and scorch half the planet. Meanwhile, Twiki is stolen by Kurt Belzak and taken to his mining colony on a different planet. To replace rebelling mine workers, Belzak schemes to reproduce the drone and send the duplicates into the mines. Buck travels to the planet to save Twiki, and while in the mines, he finds a powerful explosive that can destroy the asteroid. But first he must get past Belzak's paranormal enforcers, the OmniGuard – Stella, Clare and Dawn – sent by Belzak to seize Twiki.
