The episode starts out in space near Vilgax’s ship. Within the ship, spotlights highlight three different armored mercenaries. The first is Sixsix, who wears purple armor covered with many pockets encasing various weapons, and has a jet-pack on his back. Next is Kraab, a crustacean-like hunter with gold armor. And as his name states, he has a sideways mouth, four-scythe-like legs, and a large, powerful pincher on his left hand. Last is Hoverboard. He has a suit of seemingly impenetrable gray armor. He carries a rifle, and a green hoverboard. He is the most mysterious of the three. Vilgax’s voice comes over in an intercom, announcing the start of their audition. A swarm of robot drones come in to start the fight. First up is Sixsix. With the many weapons in his suit, he makes the short work of most of the robot drones. Kraab then joins the fray next, using his powerful left pincher to dispose the last of them. Then the same robot droid that Ben had fought before shows up. Hoverboard however is the next to fight this one, flying right towards it without thinking about his safety. The robot blasts him, but he is merely affected by it. Hoverboard then smashes through the droid in a single blow. With Vilgax impressed, he offers a reward to the first hunter that retrieves the Omnitrix. He then sends them out to the planet Earth...
