She's partnered with Nug Grommet, the handsome cyber-surfing champion in a dance contest. Turning even greener with jealousy, Hacker enters the contest to prove his superiority. Only there's one small problem-who can he coerce into being his partner? Enter the CyberSquad. Observing Jackie's prowess on the dance floor, Hacker has Buzz and Delete detain Inez, then forces Jackie to teach him the moves and dance with him in exchange for Inez's safe return. As the contest unfolds, it becomes apparent that the judges lack a workable scoring system to decide the winner. Determined to help Inez, Matt joins the judges to find a way to score the contest. And, as Wicked points out, it had better be fair or she will wreak her revenge! Should Matt give Hacker and Jackie a higher score than Wicked and Nug so Inez can go free?

Spheres of Fears (#610) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

In his latest and possibly maddest scheme ever, Hacker traps Digit and the kids in one of the dreaded Spheres of Fears, a mini-galaxy of orbs populated by eerie creatures called Creepers. He wants them out of the way so that Delete, in a diva star turn, can impersonate Motherboard and convince everyone in Cyberspace to cause chaos everywhere. No one can stop him now! To unlock the door and escape their Sphere, the kids must find the codebook-which Digit remembers is at the opposite end of the Sphere's diameter. And there is no way any of them will make that creepy journey alone! As chaos builds in cyberspace, the team uses the relationship between circumference and diameter to overcome obstacles, and their fears, in the search for the codebook. But can they find it in time? If they fail, chaos will reign supreme, and Hacker will take over the virtual universe forever!

Digit uses updates on the storm's progress from cyberweathercaster Stormy Gale (Janice Huff) to help the kids track the storm. Will the kids be able to predict where and when it will hit next - or will the storm stop them from saving the Emperor from a frozen fate?

The X-Factor (#703) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

All is not well in Perfectamundo, a dome-enclosed cybersite, when orange spots are discovered building up on the dome's interior surface, blocking the site's precious sunlight. What source could be responsible for the spots multiplying so fast? Is it Hacker's new factory that pours out orange clouds through smoky stacks? It can't be that new Digifizz toy, with its tiny burst of colorful sparkles shooting into the air each time it gets used. With time running out, the CyberSquad must come to grips with the power of multiplication and use it to undo the site's pollution problem.

It's the annual Father's Day Parade in Tikiville, and Creech's father, Max (Matthew Broderick), is this year's Cyberdad of the Year.

Using secret codes and a band of bad guys, he rolls into action, cleverly changing the code each step of the way to keep those "earthbrats" from catching on.
