Episode Summary

EDIT
The Beginning
AIRED:
James Bond 007 lends his teenage nephew the Aston Martin DB5. While driving to Warfield Academy, James Jr. is ambushed by S.C.U.M. Lord in his Rolls Royce. S.C.U.M. Lord chases James Jr. off a cliff, but James Jr. manages to escape using the car's flight converter. Little does James Jr. know is that S.C.U.M. Lord wasn't after him, but the Aston Martin. S.C.U.M. Lord has received evidence that the car contains a powerful electromagnetic pulse generator, one powerful enough to destroy every computer within a fifty mile radius. Everything from the modern toaster to the most sophisticated computer would be rendered useless. With such a device in his hands, S.C.U.M. Lord would be able to destroy all of England's defense and economic computers, thus S.C.U.M. would be able to take control of the UK. Meanwhile, James Jr. arrives at Warfield, where he is immediately grounded by Principal Millbanks for being late. While being on Millbanks' bad side, James Jr. becomes friends with the dorm teacher Mr. Mitchell, who apparently had met James Senior when he was in the FBI. Later, James Jr. meets up with classmates Horrice Boothroyd, the grandson of Major Boothroyd, (As gramps is "Q", this makes his grandson "IQ") and Gordo Leiter, the son of CIA agent Felix Leiter. Bond also becomes enemies with arch twit Trevor Noseworthy IV. Later on that day, the school receives a phone call from the local post office - there is a package to James Jr. from Bond Sr. Knowing it could be important, James Jr. thinks he should pick it up immediately, but knowing he's been grounded how to get out of Warfield without Millbanks seeing him? Fortunately Millbanks' daughter, Tracy, tells Bond how to get out undetected - in exchange for a ride in the Aston Martin. As Warfield was once a counterintelligence training base several secret passages were built in, James Jr. and Tracy take the passage way all the way down to the beach, where IQ is waiting for them in the Aston Martin. And the three drive off into town. Arriving at the post office, James Jr. and IQ leave Tracy in the car while they go to receive Bond's package. There's just one problem - there is no package from Bond Sr.; it was all a set-up by S.C.U.M. Lord! No sooner than James Jr. and IQ enter the building, than S.C.U.M. henchman Jaws appears! James Jr. and IQ run back outside only in time to see Jaws drive off with the DB5, with Tracy in the back of the car. James Jr. calls Warfield and soon Gordo and Tracy's friend Phebbie arrives in the school van. According to Q, every MI-6 vehicle carries a homing signal. Using a GPS uplink, our hero's follow the Aston Martin's blip all the way to an abandoned airfield. The car is in the back of a transport truck ready to be loaded onto a S.C.U.M. cargo jet bound for S.C.U.M. Lord's lair. IQ provides James Jr. with a gadget-laden wristwatch, a device that can guide the DB5 by remote, and a tube of super conductive liquid. IQ originally developed the liquid to boil three-minute eggs in ten seconds, but it ended up blowing things up. Sneaking past the terrorists, Bond puts the liquid in the truck's engine. The engine explodes, creating a distraction. While the terrorists are occupied by the burning engine, James sneaks into the back of the truck where he finds Tracy in the Aston Martin's trunk. But before the two can escape, Jaws appears! The towering henchman locks the two in the trunk and drives the Aston Martin out of the truck and onto the plane. The aircraft takes off with James Jr. and Tracy in the 'first class' section. Using the laser in the watch, James Jr. and Tracy manage to escape. They immediately get behind the wheel of the Aston Martin, but James Jr.'s plans to use the flight converter to escape fail, as he discovers the device had been damaged in the last flight. But the really bad news is the noise of the Aston Martin revving up alerted Jaws from the cockpit! James Jr. fights back against the towering steel-toothed assassin, ramming him and using the car's gadgets against him until finally the henchman is defeated. With no way of getting the Aston Martin off the plane, James Jr. plans to destroy the aircraft and everything on it, thus preventing the EMP generator from falling into the hands of S.C.U.M. James Jr. uses the remote control to repeatably ram the DB5 into the cockpit door until the plane loses control. James Jr. and Tracy jump out on a parachute just as the massive aircraft explodes over the countryside. Having rescued Tracy, James Jr. quickly returns to Warfield before Trevor Noseworthy can tell on him to Mr. Millbanks. Tracy tells Mr. Mitchell about the rescue; however Mitchell, who had just spoken to James Bond 007 in person, has other news. That EMP generator S.C.U.M. was after was never in the Aston Martin at all, S.C.U.M. Lord had been misinformed. James Jr. feels bad about destroying his Uncle's car, but Bond Sr. has other plans. 007 has what is left of the Aston Martin retrieved and shipped back to MI-6 in London, and there he asks Q to rebuild the car into a new and unique gadget-ladan sportscar, the Aston Martin Super. 007 then gives the car to his nephew as a gift.moreless
