The first episode begins with Sparks Nevada and Croach the Tracker riding across Mars after a prison break with intent to hunt down the escaped robot outlaws when they come across a tiny spaceship invading Mars airspace. After recognizing that the spaceship does not have proper permits, Nevada lassos the tiny spaceship. After some technical difficulties, tiny space aliens emerge brandishing The Reversifier and claiming that "Science needs no permits!" The aliens reveal themselves to be cousins Professor Genius and Adjunct Professor Genius from the SK System. They express their need to write papers about the effects of The Reversifier on beings to get the Adjunct Professor his doctorate, and threaten our heroes with being turned inside out.
Insanity Jane, Jilm, Jindlefer, and Callusandra, the hostile human women of the Lynchtree family, enter with a noose and the intent to hang Croach on account of his being a martian. They claim ignorance of the law is freedom from the law, and therefore they have legal rights to hang Croach, which in reality in is violation of Public Resource Codes 15013-15018. The science aliens realize that Nevada is distracted by the angry posse of Lynchtree women and plot to reversify the women in order to write a paper on the effects. Croach selflessly steps in front of the beam to prevent the women from being inversified and he is turned inside out. Nevada lectures the women on taking the law into their own hands and they disperse to whitewash the widow Johnson's fence, puzzled and touched by Croach's sacrifice. They become a helpful posse rather than an angry one. Waxing poetic about Croach's apparent demise, Nevada is suddenly interrupted by Croach's body healing by the great power of Nah Nohtek. Claiming that no harm was really done, the science aliens fly off promising to get proper permits and plotting to write a sociology paper on the events of the day for the Adjunct Professor Genius to get course credit. While flying away, they let slip that Mars is about to be destroyed, leaving Nevada and Croach with a sense of foreboding.
Racism: We see through the words and actions of the Lynchtree women that they consider martians unequal to humans. While Croach took the shot from The Reversifier for them, it is unknown if they learned from the experience.
It is revealed during the episode that science aliens from the SK system are cute and furred (not blue fur), while [martians] are handsome, blue, and have no fur. In such a way the listeners slowly begin to visualize the difference between alien races.
