The Earth appears, and then a city by a lake, where many planes fly around an airport.

A song plays and it says ONCE UPON A FUTURE TIME
IN A PLACE CALLED
STARDUST BAY
COUNTIN' DOWN TO
ADVENTURE NOW
ROCKETS ON A MISSION
WE'RE ON OUR WAY!

Three happy space racers take off and fly into space.

The song continues SPACE RACERS
SURFIN' THE SOLAR WIND
SPACE RACERS
TOGETHER THE FUN
BEGINS

The space racers explore the Solar System.

The song continues WAY UP WHERE THE
PLANETS, MOONS
AND STARS ALL SHIMMER
AND SHINE, SHINE
HAVING A GREAT TIME
EXPLORING
SPACE RACERS

The title of the show appears in space: Space Racers.

Starling shows up and says HEY, WAIT FOR ME!

Today’s episode is "The haunted asteroid."

[CHATTER]
[SLURPING]

At the academy, the cadets have some fuel drinks.

Eagle says I LIKE THIS NEW NACHO CHEESE
AND BLACK BEAN FUEL FLAVOUR.

Hawk says MMM... YEAH.

Hawk belches and says OOPS.
PARDON ME.

Raven says HEY, GUYS.
SO...
READY FOR TOMORROW?

Robyn says TOMORROW?

Raven says TELL ME YOU DON'T KNOW.

Eagle says YOU MEAN HALLOWEEN?
OF COURSE WE'RE READY.

Robyn says COSTUMES, CHECK.
GOODY BAGS, CHECK.

Raven says NOT JUST HALLOWEEN.
THE RETURN OF
THE HAUNTED ASTEROID!

The cadets say HUH?
WHAT?

Robyn says DON'T TELL ME
YOU BELIEVE IN THAT STUFF.
SCIENTIFICALLY
SPEAKING,
THERE'S NO SUCH THING
AS HAUNTED AST...

Crane says RAVEN IS RIGHT.
THE ASTEROID IS
VERY REAL,
AND IT'S BEEN 50 YEARS
SINCE IT HAS BEEN THIS CLOSE,
BUT DON'T FORGET,
IT'S ABSOLUTELY,
TOTALLY FORBIDDEN
TO GO THERE.

Eagle says WHAT'S FORBIDDEN?
WHAT 50 YEARS?

Raven says THERE'S THIS ASTEROID
THAT PASSES
REALLY CLOSE TO EARTH
EVERY 50 YEARS
DURING ITS ORBIT
AROUND THE SUN,
AND IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE
HAUNTED.

Robyn says HAUNTED?
I ALREADY TOLD YOU...

Eagle says WAIT!
LET HIM TELL IT.

Raven says THE STORY GOES
THAT FOUR SPACE RACERS
VISITED THE HAUNTED ASTEROID
50 YEARS AGO
AND NEVER CAME BACK.

Hawk and Eagle gulp.

Raven says ANYWAY, THAT'S THE STORY.
BELIEVE IT IF YOU WANT TO.
BUT ANYONE WHO GOES THERE
AND MAKES IT BACK
HAS QUITE A STORY
TO TELL.

Robyn says OH, COME ON!
THERE'S NO
SUCH THING.

Eagle says I DON'T KNOW.
YOU KNOW WHAT
THE HEADMASTER ALWAYS SAYS...
NEVER JUMP
TO CONCLUSIONS.
"A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES
BEGINS WITH A SINGLE IDEA."

Hawk says WELL, MY IDEA IS THAT
THE ASTEROID IS HAUNTED.

Robyn says AND MINE
IS THAT IS ISN'T.

Hawk says SO, NOW WHAT?

Eagle says IN ORDER TO PROVE
WHO'S RIGHT,
WE GOT TO GO THERE.

Hawk says BUT YOU HEARD
HEADMASTER CRANE.

Eagle says OH, HE WAS ONLY KIDDING
IN THE SPIRIT OF HALLOWEEN.
SO, WHAT DO WE NEED
TO PROVE WE WERE ACTUALLY THERE?

Robyn says A REALLY GOOD
DIGITAL CAMERA,
PLENTY OF FUEL,
EXTRA POWER PACKS.
A CORE BORER, CHECK.
MAGNIFICATION LENSES,
CHECK.
EXTRA RECORDING
EQUIPMENT, CHECK.

Eagle says THEY'LL BE TELLING STORIES
OF HOW BRAVE WE WERE
FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS.
RAVEN? WHAT ARE
YOU DOING HERE?

Raven says COME ON, YOU DON'T THINK
YOU'RE GOING WITHOUT ME.

Eagle says OH.
WELL, OKAY.
JUST MAKE SURE
YOU KEEP UP.

Raven says KEEP UP, HUH?
FIVE, FOUR, THREE,
TWO, ONE, BLAST OFF!
EAT MY SPACE DUST!
[LAUGHING]

Robyn says WHAT A...

Eagle says NEVER MIND.
WE'LL CATCH UP.
BOOSTER ROCKETS.

Hawk says ENGAGED.

Robyn says ENGAGED.

Eagle says WINGS.

Hawk says BACK.

Robyn says BACK.

Eagle says SPACE VISORS?

Hawk says DOWN.

Robyn says DOWN.
[ALL]

They all say BLAST OFF!

Hawk says ZA-ZA-ZOOM!

The cadets approach the asteroid.

Hawk says UH... IT HAS EYES!
AND A REALLY, REALLY
CREEPY-LOOKING MOUTH!
UH, GUYS?
I, UH, I FORGOT TO DO SOMETHING
FOR TOMORROW'S CLASS.

Eagle says WHAT DID YOU FORGET?

Hawk says UM... MY ROCKET SCIENCE
HOMEWORK. THAT'S IT!
I FORGOT TO DO
MY HOMEWORK.

Eagle says HAWKY, WE DON'T EVEN HAVE
ROCKET SCIENCE TOMORROW.

Hawk says OH, UM, RIGHT.
SILLY ME, HUH?

Robyn says GUYS, COME ON.
THOSE AREN'T EYES
OR EVEN A MOUTH.
THEY'RE JUST CRATERS.
ALL ASTEROIDS HAVE CRATERS.

Eagle says WE KNEW THAT.

Hawk says HEY, WHAT HAPPENED
TO RAVEN?

Robyn says DON'T WORRY,
YOU JUST CAN'T SEE HIM
BECAUSE THE ASTEROID
IS SO DARK.
I BET IT'S
A C-TYPE ASTEROID.

Hawk says YEAH, "C" FOR CREEPY.

Eagle says NO, "C" FOR
CARBONACEOUS.
MADE FROM CLAY
AND STONY SILICATE.

Hawk says STONY SILI WHAT?

Eagle says SILICATE.
IT'S A KIND
OF MINERAL.

Robyn says WE'LL DO SOME DRILLING
WHEN WE GET THERE.
I WANT TO BRING A SAMPLE BACK
TO EXAMINE AND ANALYZE.

Eagle says AND PROOF THAT WE'VE
BEEN THERE.
HOPE ALL OUR DRILLING
WON'T MAKE THE LOCAL
GHOSTS ANGRY AT US.

Hawk says MAYBE WE
SHOULDN'T DRILL.

Robyn says EAGLE'S JUST PULLING
YOUR THRUSTER.
THERE ARE NO GHOSTS.

Eagle says THAT'S WHAT
YOU
SAY.
AVA, INITIATE
LANDING PROTOCOL.

Ava says ARE YOU SURE IT IS
ADVISABLE TO LAND HERE?
MY READINGS INDICATE THAT THIS
IS THE HAUNTED ASTEROID.

Robyn says AVA, YOU DON'T BELIEVE
IN THAT HAUNTED STUFF, DO YOU?
YOU'RE A COMPUTER PROGRAM.

Ava says EVERY STORY I HAVE
EVER HEARD ABOUT THIS ASTEROID
INDICATES THAT
IT MAY BE HAUNTED.
[STATICKY]
BUT IF YOU REALLY WISH TO LAND,
LANDING PROTOCOL INITIATED.

Eagle says AVA, REPEAT PLEASE.

Ava says [STATICKY]
BUT... LAND... PROTOCOL.

Eagle says WEIRD.
WHAT'S HAPPENING TO AVA?

Hawk says THIS MEANS WE CAN'T COMMUNICATE
WITH THE ACADEMY.

Eagle says NO PROBLEM.
WE WOULDN'T WANT TO COMMUNICATE
WITH THE ACADEMY.
REMEMBER? WE'RE NOT
SUPPOSED TO BE HERE.

Robyn says IT'S PROBABLY JUST
A MINOR MALFUNCTION.

Hawk says OR...
IT'S THE HAUNTED ASTEROID!

Robyn says OH, HAWK,
DON'T BE SILLY.

The cadets land on the asteroid.

Robyn says HEY, LET ME GET A PICTURE
OF YOU GUYS.
GO STAND OVER THERE.

Hawk and Eagle curl up their wings for the picture.

[HAWK GRUNTING,
CAMERA CLICKING]

Hawk says OH, YEAH!

Suddenly, a shadow appears between the guys and the camera.

Robyn says WHAT? HUH?
BEHIND YOU!
[BOTH SCREAMING]

Up on a hill, Raven says OOH, SCARED?
[CHUCKLES]
YOU GUYS ARE SO EASY.
IT'S JUST A SHADOW.

Robyn says YEAH. RIGHT.

Raven says COME ON, SCAREDY-CATS.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK
AROUND THIS PLACE.
IT CAN'T BE MORE
THAN A MILE IN DIAMETER.

Robyn says OR MORE THAN
60 MILES?
YOU CLEARLY KNOW NOTHING
ABOUT ASTEROIDS.

Raven says SHOW-OFF.
YOU KNOW IT ISN'T THAT BIG.

Robyn says OHH!
SOMETIMES HE REALLY
BURNS MY JETS.
HEY, LET'S LAND HERE.
THERE'S A NICE
FLAT AREA
WHERE WE CAN TAKE
A CORE SAMPLE.

Raven says WHO NEEDS
A CORE SAMPLE?

Robyn says DON'T YOU WANT TO KNOW
WHAT THE ASTEROID IS MADE OF?

Raven says WHO CARES?

Eagle says ME.
AND I WANT TO BRING
SOMETHING BACK
TO PROVE WE WERE HERE.
EH.

The cadets land.

Hawk says CORE DIGGER DEPLOYED.
[GRUNTING]

He starts digging and the asteroid starts moving.

[WHIMPERING]

Hawk says AAH!
IT'S ALIVE!
[WHIMPERING]

Raven grabs his camera and says SAY "ANTIFREEZE."
BOY, WAIT 'TIL I SHOW THIS
AROUND THE ACADEMY.
[LAUGHING]
JUST A SMALL EARTHQUAKE.
THEY HAPPEN WHEN ASTEROIDS
ARE CLOSE TO EARTH.

Eagle says I KNEW THAT.
DIDN'T REALLY SCARE ME.

Hawk says SCARED ME.

Raven says COME ON, ADMIT IT,
YOU WERE SHAKING LIKE
A LITTLE BABY ROCKET.

Eagle says WAS NOT.

Raven says WAS TOO.

Eagle says WAS NOT.

Robyn says AAH!
RAVEN, BEHIND YOU!
[WHIMPERS]

Hawk takes a picture of him as he turns around.

Robyn says NICE PIC, HAWK.

Hawk says YOU BETCHA!

Raven says I WASN'T
REALLY SCARED.

Eagle says WERE TOO!

Raven says WAS NOT.

Eagle says WERE TOO!

Robyn says YOU KNOW WE DON'T HAVE
A LOT OF TIME.
WE NEED TO GET BACK
TO STARDUST BAY
BEFORE SOMEONE
NOTICES WE'RE GONE.

Hawk says AND THERE'S A BIG
HALLOWEEN PARTY TONIGHT!
I WAS GONNA GO
AS A METEORITE,
BUT NOW I THINK I'LL GO
AS THE HAUNTED ASTEROID.
I'M WAY TO BIG TO BE
A METEORITE ANYWAY.

Eagle says JUST A SEC.
BEFORE WE GO, I WANT
TO TAKE A SELFIE.
HEY, GUYS,
GET A LOAD OF THIS.

He shows them the selfie with a shadowy figure behind him.

Hawk stammers and says WHAT'S THAT?

Robyn says RAVEN, DID YOU DO THAT?

Raven says NOT ME, I SWEAR.

Robyn says LET ME TRY TAKING
A PICTURE OF YOU, EAGLE.
MAYBE IT WAS A MALFUNCTION
IN YOUR CAMERA.

Hawk says I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD
STICK AROUND HERE ANYMORE.
[CLICK]

Robyn says LOOK!

Eagle says IT WAS JUST HAWK'S
REAR THRUSTER.

Robyn says YEP.
NO GHOSTS HERE.
HAWK?
HAWK?

[HAWK SCREAMS]

Eagle says HAWK!

Robyn says HAWK?

Eagle says HAWK?
WHERE ARE YOU, BUDDY?

Raven says HAWK?
OVER THERE.

[SOFT WHIMPERING]

Eagle says HAWK, WHAT'S THE MATTER?

Robyn says ARE YOU OKAY?

Hawk says I WAS M-MINDING
MY OWN BUSINESS
WHEN I B-BANGED INTO SOMETHING
WITH MY TAIL FIN,
AND I T-TURNED AROUND
AND...
IT'S A ROCKET
J-JUNKYARD!

[ALL GRUNT]

Recorded gravelly voices says TESTING, ONE, TWO, THREE.
TESTING.

Raven says WHAT?

Robyn says HUH?

The voices WELCOME TO THE HAUNTED
ASTEROID.
IF YOU'RE HERE,
IT MUST BE 50 YEARS
FROM THE DAY OF THIS RECORDING,
AND THERE'S SOMETHING
I NEED TO TELL YOU.
[SINISTER LAUGHTER]
[FEMALE CLEARS THROAT]

A female voice coming from a radio on the floor says THAT'S BETTER.
HERE AT STARDUST
SPACE ACADEMY,
WE HAVE MANY GREAT
OLD TRADITIONS.
ONE OF THEM
IS MAINTAINING THE LEGEND
OF THE HAUNTED ASTEROID,
WHICH, IN CASE
YOU WERE WONDERING,
ISN'T REALLY HAUNTED
AT ALL.

A black and white clip shows another group of cadets.

The female cadet says THE SPACE RACERS
WHO CAME UP HERE WEREN'T LOST.
I WAS ONE OF THEM.
AND WHILE WE WERE HERE,
WE GOT A MESSAGE
FROM THE CADETS
WHO WERE UP HERE
50 YEARS BEFORE US.
OUR MISSION
AND NOW YOURS
IS TO SET UP THE SCARIEST
SCARE YOU CAN
FOR THE NEXT SPACE RACERS
WHO ARE BRAVE ENOUGH
TO VISIT.
IT WAS MY IDEA TO BUILD
THE SPOOKY
SPACESHIP JUNKYARD.

A male cadet says WAS NOT.
IT WAS MY IDEA.

The female cadet says NO WAY!
IT WAS MINE!

Another cadet says NO. MINE!

Another cadet says HEY, GUYS, COOL IT.
WE HAVE TO GET BACK
BEFORE THEY MISS US.

The first male cadet says YEAH, STOP ARGUING
AND FINISH THE RECORDING.

The female cadet says MAKE IT A BIG SCARE
SO THE NEXT SPACE RACERS
WHO GET HERE
HAVE THE THRILL
OF THEIR LIVES,
IF, THAT IS,
THEY'RE BRAVE ENOUGH
TO TAKE ON
THE CHALLENGE,
AS YOU WERE.
BUT YOU HAVE TO
KEEP IT A SECRET,
EVEN FROM AVA.
SHE'S BEEN OFFLINE
DURING THIS BROADCAST.
THAT'S ALL.
GOOD LUCK.
OVER AND OUT.
[ELECTRONIC WARBLING]

Ava says HELLO?
OH, GOOD, I AM FINALLY
BACK ONLINE.
WHAT HAPPENED?

Eagle says UH, NOTHING, AVA.

Hawk says SO, WE HAVE TO
SET UP A SCARE
FOR 50 YEARS
IN THE FUTURE.

Eagle says AND KEEP IT
A SECRET.

Raven says NO WAY!
I'M SHOWING EVERYONE
THOSE SCAREDY-CAT
PICTURES I TOOK OF YOU.

Robyn says DON'T FORGET,
I GOT A GREAT ONE
OF YOU TOO.

Raven says OH, YEAH. OKAY.

Hawk says SO, WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?

Eagle says WHOA, I HAVE
THE COOLEST IDEA.

Raven says WAIT, I'VE GOT ONE TOO.
AND MY IDEA'S BETTER.

Eagle says NO WAY!

Robyn says OKAY, SO HERE'S THE PLAN,
WE START...

Ava says PLANS? WHAT PLANS?
COME ON, GUYS, SOMEBODY TELL ME
WHAT'S GOING ON.

(music plays)

The end credits roll.
