Summary Edit

The Doctor and Decky investigate the disappearance of four missing pilots in the Great Space Race and find a decommissioned Robot King!

Plot Edit

Investigating the disappearance of four pilots from the Great Space Race on Space Station Cherry Delta The Doctor has Decky Flamboon entering the race armed with a homing beacon in the event something should happen to him. The first manoeuvre in space is to circle a junkyard planet. It is above this planet that Decky loses control of his ship and crashes into the planet. On investigating the Doctor is attacked by giant robots that have transformed out of the racing ships and trapped a pilot inside of each. Decky (along with the other trapped pilots) is unable to stop his own robot shell firing shots at the Doctor. An attempt to use his shape-shifting belt to free himself results in a feedback that causes the robot to fire indiscriminately around him. In the confusion the Doctor is able to track the source of control to a bitter and rusted Robot King which had been abandoned and allowed to go rusty in a pile of junk. With a little bit of modification the Doctor is able to remove the Robot King's consciousness and convert the Robot King (a universal remote control for all machinery which ceased production in the 2200s), into a more useful appliance — a toaster! Without the Robot Kings influence the Robots are reduced to scrap metal and the missing pilots are free to return home.
