s01e01 - Behold the Beast
Planet Tek was devoured by the Beast Planet... Tekla was the only one in her solar system to survive... now they've chased her to the Ice planet... The Rock people were stealing their ice and the Ice Lord's fleet was about to annihilate them, but then Tekla showed up with the Beast Drones behind her...
The low ranking miner, Graveheart, sided with the Ice King and helped take them town, but Tekla got hurt and deactivated...
The animation for the battles is hilariously bad... but kind of in a charming way... it's like watching old video game AI enemies try to attack the player.
s01e02 - On the Rocks
The rest of the rock people were still hostile to the ice people. The Ice Lord's diplomacy mission to planet rock failed, and the miner went to jail... Just as the Rock Planet was deactivating its battle moons to let the Ice Lord through, the beast drones took that opportunity to invade.
Graveheart's friend Jade doesn't believe him... she's still mad at him for quitting the army.. until the beasts actually come down and attack. They successfully disable the battle moons so that more are able to come in, but Graveheart and Jade manage to take manual control of the moons to make them flee.
The Rock Lord still refuses to ally with the other planets, saying their battle moons will be enough to protect them... um but they're kinda screwed anyway if the other planets that contain resources they need are devoured? Graveheart gets exiled and has no choice but to join the Ice Lord Cryos. Jade decides to go with him.
s01e03 - Born in Fire
The Fire Prince, Pyros, is being raised by a very strict old man, but he's not afraid to assert himself and take command as prince. They make Cryos and Graveheart take the trial by fire to prove their worthiness before they'll ally with them. Cryos's doaughter sneaks into the prince's throne room and yells at him.
"Perhaps I should stick YOUR father in an ice cabinet!"
I think the fire prince's dad is dead or something... but she doesn't stop yelling at him, then she almost falls off a bridge, and the prince barely saves her... They have a sort of awkward/romantic moment when they touch each other, and smoke comes out of both of them... eventually the start to get along as they fight beast drones together...
The fire prince finds out that girl has healing powers... he now agrees that the best course of action is to form an alliance.
s01e04 - Bad to the Bone
While the ice people act lawful and defensively, the rock people act more spontaneous and aggressively, and the fire people act mean-spirited and agressively... the bone people are super crazy and act chaotically and defensively...
Now they meet the Bone Emperor Feemer on the next diplomatic mission... but when they get there they realize he allied with one of the Beast Planet's generals. This general has different tactics than the one who tried to invade Ice and Rock, she's saying she's helping to defend this planet from the other 3. But the forcefield thing she's making is actually a way for the Beasts to invade and steal their energy. Feemer quickly changes sides and uses his weird hologram powers to distract the beast fleet while the others take out the generator.
Now all the planets are together, except for the Rock Lord's minions.
