He-Man and Man-At-Arms discover an alien space ship inside a sand dune. The pilot, a robot named Roboto, is taken to Duncan's laboratory, where Orko inadvertently revives him. Roboto explains he is a robot explorer from the planet Robotica, where he has thousands of "brothers and sisters." Modulok's spy informs him of Roboto, so Modulok breaks into the laboratory and electrocutes Roboto, brainwashing his mind. Modulok takes the robot to Station Zeta, where the two of them take over the researchers there. He-Man and Man-At-Arms arrive to save the day, but Roboto shocks both of them. Modulok places Man-At-Arms in his brain transfer machine, with which he hopes to transfer Duncan's brainpower to an attachable head for his enrichment. He-Man, trapped in a force field, begs Roboto to fight for his true friends, and Roboto breaks his reprogramming to release He-Man. He-Man liberates Man-At-Arms, and they return to the Palace, where Man-At-Arms is championed as Roboto's "father" on the robot's honorary "birthday."
