Max & Kat are sent to Kansas, where a former N-Tek employee, Dr. Klimo, is continuing his experimentation into harnassing the DNA of poisonous animals to create new weapons. (Jefferson had fired him when his experiments started going beyond good science. He USED to be a nice guy, even playing ball with N-Tek employee kids, like little Josh McGrath.) They find Klimo at work in an old barn, surrounded by cages of bats & snakes, and huge bubbling vats. He isn't interested in being taken back to Del Oro Bay, and a fight ensues. Klimo falls off a platform down into one of his vats of bubbling blue toxins. Just as Max & Kat turn to go, lamenting his death, a creature rises out of the vat -- Klimo's DNA has been altered, and his body is now sssssuper-ssssstrong, and constructed of coiled ssssssnakes! Klimo has become a poisonoussssss sssssnake himself, and can call other sssssnakes to help. They fight further, with Kat getting hurt in the ankle, but eventually Klimo morphs into a long,

2x08 Space Opera (a.k.a. Shooting Stars) (January 20, 2001)


Episode ""Space Opera"" in this database, listed as ""Shooting Stars"" on Cartoon Network 'Berto has been dying to do something that allows public recognition, unlike all his N-Tek work, and he gets word from NASA that he and his optics experiment have been approved to fly on the next Space Cruiser flight. Max agrees to give him a week of training to get him into shape for the flight. It's clear that 'Berto really is used to a lot of sitting! 'Berto gets to the Cape and meets Sarah Wolf, the Mission Specialist in charge of him and the payloads, and the rest of the crew. When N-Tek finds out his parents can't get to Florida in time to watch the launch, Max goes there to cheer on 'Berto. After 'Berto notes the last-minute loading of the latest space telescope onto the Cruiser, Josh arrives, and invites 'Berto to party on his last earth-bound night -- but 'Berto collapses, exhausted. 'Berto gets up early on launch day and goes into the Cruiser to check on his experiment, only to find th

2x07 Steel vs. Steel (December 16, 2000)


Kat & Max are sent to retrieve a ""magma crystal"" from the mouth of an active volcano, but fail. Regrouping back at N-Tek, one of Electrix's electrobots (captured in a previous episode) attacks Max! No wait, it's not the same old electrobot -- 'Berto has modified it with trans-phasic energy to become an N-Tek ""techbot"": another agent, like Max & Kat. Max is none too pleased about being replaced by ""a bucket of bolts with a motherboard strapped on"", but 'Berto makes him understand that it is just to help, not replace him. Jefferson notes it would have been perfect to send into the volcano, instead of human agents, but Max is still skeptical. They undertake to train the new ""agent"" over at the N-Tek training island. Things begin to go wrong, and it turns out that Electrix included special code on the motherboard that, if captured, would re-assert the need to attack N-Tek agents, despite 'Berto's programming. The electrobot activates its three pals in storage, and they take the Behemou

2x05 Fire & Ice (December 02, 2000)


Josh is eating dinner over at Pete's house when he is called to work by 'Berto. Pete, who now knows Josh is also secret-agent Max, begs to come along, but Josh tells him no. 'Berto sends the Hawk airplane to pick up Max, sending him to Arctic Alaska, where two N-Tek research scientists have gone missing. Enroute, he discovers Pete stowed away in the back seat, still wanting to help his pal Josh with his secret agent role. Pete will cause no end of distraction and trouble for Max, today. Approaching the Arctic, Max has to fight off anti-aircraft missles from the villain, while Pete has to fight off motion sickness. They end up crash-landed close to the research station, and start to ski the rest of the way, where Max has to fight off a huge polar bear (without harming this endangered species!). At the research station, they discover that Vitriol has tapped in to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and try to discover whether they're stealing oil or planning to cause an ecological disaster. I

2x03 Amazon (November 11, 2000)


Max is dispatched to the Amazon rain forest to investigate, as large swaths of the forest are mysteriously being cleared. There's another N-Tek operative, named Kat, who has been on the job for a few days, but her communications have gone silent. Also, 'Berto has to come along, because Max's communications won't work properly inside the dense rain forest (huh ??) and 'Berto knows the area. (Being from Columbia, he knows Brazil well.) After landing, Max & 'Berto are jumped -- and it turns out that they've surprised Kat, alive & well, but with a broken communicator. Kat doesn't need any help, thank you. Nor does Max need Kat. But they have to work together, or at least in close proximity. Orders, you know. Kat is mildly pleased when Max saves them from an enormous boa constrictor, while they're motoring up river, but the boat sinks, and she turns sarcastic again. They find some of the clear cuts in the forest, where 'Berto examines a felled tree, and identifies it as one with a sp

2x02 Fun in the Sun (November 04, 2000)


Things are quiet for a few days at N-Tek (with the robotic dog problems of last week, 'Berto's now developed a robotic cat reminiscent of Sony's Aibo [who's the studio making this show!?!]), so Rachel lets Max take 'Berto to Waikii Beach, Hawaii, where they can both vacation, and Josh can talk to a submarine scientist at the Pearl Harbor naval base about his latest designs, helping Josh with his civil engineering class project. After Josh & 'Berto make friends with an initially-hostile local windsurfer, a strange tsunami hits their hotel, and more rescues are in order. While Josh talks with the submarine scientist, 'Berto hacks in to their systems and finds out that there's no natural cause to the tsunami. Max & 'Berto decide to climb up to a mountainous side of the island to locate the cause of the tsunami when called from N-Tek, officially activating them and relaying L'Estranger's ransome demand for $5B to not wipe out Honolulu. They manage to fight off his minions, but L'Est

Starting off the season by saving a hijacked NY City tour bus, Rachel is then promoted to be Max's boss, while Josh is approached by a pubescent girl to support the kids' efforts to get an extreme sports park built.

But, arriving back at the apartment to try to spend a little time with Pete for a change, Josh finds a that Pete's been taken by Dread, who has survived last season's climax, and demands Max steal for him a vial of nano probes and a research disk, sending Max on a chase through a series of hurried legs to exchange vial & disk for Pete. Oh, and Dread managed to jam Max's link with Berto, thank you. In the process of saving Pete and putting Dread behind bars, Pete learns that Josh is Max. We're left with Dread in prison, vowing that ""it's not over, Max!""
