    The TMNT get the drop on masked thieves hijacking a jewelry store, only to have themselves arrested for the crime! Before the turtles can be booked, they are rescued by two mutants: Amok and Overdrive. The jewelry heist isn't the only crime the turtles are being blamed for. People have been vanishing throughout the city, sparking off further anger at the green machine. This, however, doesn't stop the turtles from doing what they do best, and when they hear of a robbery at the historical museum, they race to prevent the goods from being taken.

    They are able to do so, but in the insuring battle Michelangelo is knocked off the museum roof. Another mutant rescues him, Raptor. Finally, the identity of the new mutants is revealed, Raptor, Amok, and Overdrive form part of a Hi-tech mutant mercenary squad called H.A.V.O.C, and they want the green machine to join their organization. The TMNT decide to check these guys out and visit H.A.V.O.C'S H.Q, where they are introduced to the big cheese, Titanaus. Titanaus offers the turtles sanctuary, free from human oppression, whilst Donatello and Raphael welcome this proposal with open arms; Leonardo and Michelangelo decide to investigate H.A.V.O.C further, unable to agree. The four brothers part ways.

    Leonardo and Michelangelo decide to check on the mysterious break-in at the science labs, Donatello and Raphael join Titanaus in staging an pro-mutant rally at the temporary Channel 6, there the two strays discover that H.A.V.O.C doesn't protect mutants, they devour them. After Leonardo and Michelangelo come to the same conclusions, the four reunite to take out H.A.V.O.C's plot to turn the whole citywide population into Mutants using a very classily-titled "Mutant generator" [this explains the lab break-ins]. The TMNT triumph, but Titanaus and his troop escape. So whilst the turtles have won this day, H.A.V.O.C still roams the streets!moreless

    Believing that Shredder and Krang have taken over the Hall of Science, now that Berserko is out of commission, the Turtles set out to investigate, only to be repelled by Bebop and Rocksteady. April was able to capture the battle on tape, but she is afraid that it will not convince Burne of the Turtles' innocence.

    Meanwhile, Burne has created a hot line for callers to use should they spot those "evil" Turtles... the ones responsible for the destruction of the Channel Six News Building. Inside the Hall of Science, Shredder is fearful that the Turtles will eventually find a way into the building and must be stopped now, at any cost. Krang suggests that Shredder not worry with the equipment that Berserko left behind, as he believes that he will be able to restore communications with the Technodrome (which is still in Dimension X) and have it at their disposal once more. However, Shredder is not convinced and decides to seek out an old friend in the sewers, the Rat KIng.

    Meanwhile, Channel Six continues to run editorials denouncing the Turtles. Raphael is ready to storm down to the new Channel Six Station and "have a chat" with Vernon and Burne. When Donatello suggest that maybe Vernon is right -- maybe the more they try to help, the more they become the problem. The other Turtles cannot believe their ears! How can Donatello be saying this! But before they finish their debate, the Rat King breaks into the lair with laser guns blasting. Believing that he has dispatched the Turtles to the hereafter, the rodent liege seeks to obtain his reward from Shredder: a new strain of mutagen!

    Meanwhile, Krang has made contact with General Tragg aboard the Technodrome in Dimension X, and requests that his last and final unused weapon, the Shock Wave, be sent (via the Dimensional Portal) to Krang on Earth. Unfortunately, rather than being teleported to the Hall of Science it is sent into a busy intersection in the City, and now the police have taken custody of it. Krang sends Bebop and Rocksteady out to try and retrieve it, only for them to discover that it is at the Westmore Research Center. Over at the temporary Channel Six News Station, April is unable to convince Burne not to run his expose denouncing the Turtles and threatens to get her own story, proving the Turtles' innocence.

    April returns to the Hall of Science in time to see the Rat King enter. When she contacts the Turtles, they shrug it off and say there is nothing they can do. When Splinter hears this, he threatens to go take care of this menace himself. So, the TMNT join forces with their Sensei. Only when the heroes arrive at the Hall of Science, the last thing they expect to see was giant mutant rats!

    Krang used his new strain of mutagen on the Rat King's pet rats. The Turtles and Splinter retreat. Shredder, the Rat King, and his giant mutant rats head for the Westmore Research Center with April and her mini-cam in pursuit. The Turtles get Shredder's retro-mutagen ray and they blast the giant mutant rats, which succeeds in cutting them down to size. Afterwards, the TMNT capture the Rat King and destroy Krang's Shockwave.moreless

    After defeating a mysterious group of ninjas at the Emeryville Power Station, the Turtles decode part of a map that they were able to liberate from the would-be thieves. Unfortunately, the only words they can make out are: "EMERYVILLE" and "GREEN POWER". Meanwhile, Vernon at Channel Six News continues to report that it is those "wretched" Turtles who are responsible for all the ninja crime occurring throughout the City.

    The Turtles rush into action. But before they can make it out of the sewers, they are attacked by Colonel Wesley Knight of the U.S. Armed Forces and his elite group of soldiers, a special unit created to hunt down the TMNT. However, the Turtles escape, proving to be more than Colonel Knight had expected. As they make their getaway, the TMNT see the name: DARK WATER stenciled on Colonel Knight's hi-tech equipment.

    April tells the Turtles that Dark Water is a top secret organization, training top commandos and creating super hi-tech military equipment. The TMNT ask her to continue checking them out while they pursue the mysterious ninjas who have just broken into the Green Power building. The Turtles follow the ninjas to an abandoned aircraft hangar and spy the ninjas leader, a character known as Megavolt. The TMNT realize that he is too powerful to be defeated and decide to try a new strategy, they waltz into his lair and volunteer to join his ranks. He accepts their enlistment.

    The Turtles and MegaVolt's ninjas break into the D W Furniture store. It seems that in the back room is an unguarded hi-tech lab holding a highly concentrated form of energy. The Turtles do not like what they are doing but they realize that this is the best way to learn what MegaVolt is up to. When they exit the building the are confronted, not only by Colonel Knight and his troops but by April and her mini-cam. April has captured it all on tape, the Turtles are criminals!

    Back in MegaVolt's secret hideout, he reveals that his name is Alex Winter. He uses the highly concentrated form of energy and transforms himself into a giant electrified robotic insect and heads into the City. The Turtles have just been arrested by Colonel Knight. They try to convince him that they are innocent and that Alex Winter/MegaVolt is the guilty party. A soldier tells them that Alex Winter was a hero and the greatest agent Dark Water has ever had. Meanwhile, April gets a hold of some secret documents and manages to convince the Colonel of the Turtles innocence. Together, they defeat MegaVolt.moreless

    While surveying the military base where the Flux Transformer is being housed, knowing that it can warp time and space, the Turtles ponder as to what Titanus would want with it. Suddenly, they notice assorted military personnel loading it onto a truck and leaving the base. The Turtles need to know where it is going in order to prevent Titanus from getting his hands on it, so April elects to follow it while the Turtles opt to rid the streets of the H.A.V.O.C. mutants. That is until Krakus, a cop from the future, arrives and thinking that the Turtles are in league with Titanus, shakes them down for information.

    Meanwhile, April continues to track the Flux Transformer as it is off-loaded from the military Truck onto a train, and then in the "middle of nowhere", it is air-lifted onto a helicopter. After April contacts them with the bad news, the TMNT decide to break into the Government Computer Center and access the files pertaining to the Flux Transformer -- maybe they will learn where it has been taken. Unfortunately, they set off the alarms and before they can make good their escape, Krakus reappears and attempts to arrest them. The Turtles get the upper hand and force Krakus to explain to them who he is.

    It seems that Krakus is from the year 2066 and he is pursuing Titanus, who is also from the future where he almost took over the world with his mutants. But he escaped into the past and is now attempting to recreate his future here in the Turtles' present. Suddenly, April arrives with her mini-cam and video tapes the battle between Krakus and the Turtles -- until Krakus, who is stunned to meet her, reveals that in the future she saves his father's life and if it wasn't for her, he would not be alive. After convincing Krakus that the Turtles are the good guys, Krakus apologizes and together they go after Titanus, with Krakus keeping a protective eye on April.

    Back at H.A.V.O.C. Headquarters, Titanus learns the location of the Flux Transformer and sends a squad of mutants to retrieve it, but panics when he learns that Krakus is here in the present. So Titanus dispatches another squad of mutants to take care of the "TimeCop" - resulting in the destruction of Krakus' weapons and the "time machine" and also the kidnapping of April.

    By the time the Turtles and Krakus reunite and storm the H.A.V.O.C. headquarters, Titanus is gone. In his place he left a pre-recorded message outlining his plans for both the Flux Transformer and for April O'Neil. With no weapons, no time machine and no way back home, Krakus has Donatello use Titanus' Mutation Generator to transform him into a giant mutant so that he can save April. She must live to save his father, so that he may be born. After successfully rescuing April, the mutated Krakus and the Turtles stop Titanus from bringing more mutants through his TimeGate into the present, send Titanus back to the prehistoric past, and send Krakus (now reverted back to normal form thanks to a "Duration Timer" on the Mutation Generator) back to the future.moreless

    Titanus sends of couple of his H.A.V.O.C. mutants to bust into the Aerospace Plant and steal some much needed equipment. Only problem is that the Turtles were waiting for them. After a fight, the mutants "beat feet" and the Turtles are left scratching their heads wondering what the mutants were after. Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello also berate Michaelangelo - maybe if he hadn't been goofing off, the mutants might not have escaped.

    Back at H.A.V.O.C. headquarters, during our exposition scene, Titanus explains that he has finally located his missing FLUX TRANSFORMER, the one thing that will make the mutants "masters of time and space travel", at a heavily fortified military base. And the only way he can get it, is by building his SKY PLATFORM. And the only way he can build his SkyPlatform is by distracting the Turtles long enough so that his mutants can obtain the required parts.

    To this end, Titanus springs a CON from prison (thanks to the Turtles who put him there in the first place), turns the con into a mutant now known as SYNAPSE, a creature of pure energy, and sics him onto the Turtles. Back at the lair, Donatello logs onto his computer to investigate the Aerospace Plant to see if he can learn what the mutants might have been after, only to have Synapse come bursting out of his computer to attack the Turtles.

    With the Turtles busy being chased by Synapse, Titanus is able to successfully build his SkyPlatform. But once again, Michelangelo is "distracted", and his brother Turtles are left to deal with Synapse by themselves. Over at Channel Six, Synapse is terrorizing April, Vernon, Burne and the other employees as he systematically trashes the news station.

    While Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael pursue Synapse across town, Michelangelo returns to the scene of the original crime where he spies Titanus and company, building their SkyPlatform, and is caught in the "peeping-tom" act. After Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael finally defeat Synapse by sending him into outerspace where he will "ride the airwaves" for eternity, they unite with Michelangelo to stop Titanus and his mutants. On board the SkyPlatform, the Turtles engage the mutants into a firefight in the engine room, causing the massive ship to malfunction and crash, but not before Titanus and his fellow H.A.V.O.C. members escape aboard a shuttle.moreless

    Despite interference from the Turtles, Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady successfully install an energy transmitter inside the Power Relay Station and escape unharmed. Back at the lair, the Turtles argue as to whose fault it might be that Shredder and company got away again. Splinter suggests that they spend less time trying to get Shredder and more time doing good things, which confuses the Turtles.

    Meanwhile, over at the Hall of Science, Krang activates his new dimensional portal, thanks to Shredder's installation of the Energy Transmitter at the Power Relay Station, giving him access to Dimension X. After Donatello's equipment registers a power surge emanating from the Hall of Science, they set out to investigate, only to find the place empty and the Dimensional Portal turned on. The Turtles figure that Krang Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady have journeyed to Dimension X, but they're not sure why.

    Before they can think about it any more, they hear a voice crying for help. That voice belongs to an alien from Dimension X named Gargon. He claims that Krang had him abducted from Dimension X and used him to test a new experimental mutagen. Feeling sorry for Gargon, the Turtles free him and the alien agrees to help them find Shredder in Dimension X. But once they arrive there, it seems as if Gargon is leading them on a wild goose chase: going from planet to planet, being attacked by aliens and monsters, being dropped into a middle of a war and never finding Shredder and Krang.

    Eventually it's revealed that Gargon has actually led them into a trap. Shredder arrives in the Technodrome and rewards Gargon by using his Retro-Mutagen Cannon and transforms Gargon back to his normal self. Gargon apologizes to the Turtles and pleads for their forgiveness. But just as Shredder is about to transform the TMNT back into real Turtles so that he may be rid of them at last, Gargon saves them, allowing the Turtles to destroy the Technodrome's engines, and return to Earth through the Dimensional Portal, trapping Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady in Dimension X.moreless

    While investigating the theft of a rare telescope, the Astro-Viewer, the Turtles discover odd tracks leading away from the National Space Exploration Center. Meanwhile, at the Hall of Science, having installed the Astro-Viewer in a vain attempt to create a dimensional portal, Krang discovers an alien StarFighter flying closely past Earth. He is able to break into their transmission and learns that they have recently defeated their enemies and now have possession of the Firestar, which will make them the undisputed masters of the universe.

    Krang is excited by this piece of information. Until now, he had always thought that the Firestar was only a legend. It seems that the Firestar contains the power of a thousand suns. Krang believes it is his destiny to rule the cosmos, not just those creatures. Krang brings the alien StarFighter down with his lasers. Moments later, Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady arrive, stun Commander Korak and his comrades of the Glaxxon Federation, steal the FireStar and head back to the Hall of Science.

    April and the Turtles race to the crash site only to be confronted by Commander Korak and his fellow Glaxxons, who think that they have taken the FireStar. After being captured, the Turtles try to explain that they only came to make sure that nobody was hurt and that they are friends. Commander Korak explains that the Glaxxons have no friends and orders them thrown into a cell.

    The Glaxxons set out in search of the FireStar and April contacts the one person she can always count on when the Turtles are in trouble: CASEY JONES!Shredder delivers the FireStar to a very excited Krang. The Glaxxons fear that someone is jamming their sensors, as they cannot locate the FireStar. They head for the City determined to destroy the world if they have to.

    The Turtles escape from their cell and steal four Cyber suits. They become the Cyber Turtles and follow the Glaxxons to the City. When they meet up a battle ensues. April and Casey sneak into the Hall of Science and steal back the FireStar. The Glaxxons surrender.moreless
