While on a camping trip with his father and T-Bob, Scott tests a bird caller that he built for a science project. Shortly after, their trailer is destroyed by a swarm of metal eating insects. Matt learns that those insects are called Roteks, a biological weapon for military purposes. One colony of Roteks is missing and the time until they multiply is running out quickly. M.A.S.K. is in for a race against time to find and capture the Roteks before that happens. But of course, VENOM also wants the Roteks...
