Rock and roll comes to Quartex! Will they survive the experience?
At a High Rollahz concert on Earth, A.J. Foster and Scratch got the idea to improve interstellar relations through music. Along with Turbo and Nick Burns, they approached lead singer Ned Dilettante and the Rollahz after the concert and impulsively flew off to Quartex. They contacted Boulder's tribe, and Crackpot assumed responsibility for arranging a concert at the Ingot Ampitheater. News of the concert reached Magmar at Stonehead. He and Stoneheart decided to capture the band in order to force Earth to side with Magmar's Rock Lords.
Stoneheart and the Shock Rocks attacked the Command Center as it landed, accidentally making off with Nick and the band instead of Ned. The lead singer was particularly self-absorbed about the news, leading A.J. to quickly get over her star-struck admiration of him. Crackpot and the Guardians detoured through Foidolite Forest, risking the wrath of the Rockasaurus Terra-Roc to get ahead of Stoneheart's crew. However, their ambush on the other side of the forest was disrupted when a narlilizard was drawn to Dilettante, spoiling the surprise. The fighting got intense between the Guardians and the evil Rock Lords, especially after Crackpot seemingly abandoned them. In fact, he gathered a herd of narlirhinos to stampede the Rock Warriors, driving off Stoneheart and his minions. The concert soon went on, and relations between Earth, GoBotron, and Quartex were never closer.
