The second season finds Miles utilizing his newfound Galactech power mode, which enhances the Callistos' vehicles, gadgets, and space suits, allowing Miles to take on more daring missions with his supercharged Blastboard and robo-ostrich best friend M.E.R.C. With these augmented abilities, Miles must take the lead in a variety of challenging adventures, including exploring different planets, encountering new aliens and venturing out even further into the universe.
The third season follows young adventurer Miles as he leads a highly skilled team of friends, each with their own unique abilities, on exciting outer space expeditions. Miles exemplifies science, his sister Loretta specializes in technology and their friends Mirandos, Blodger, and Haruna focus on engineering, arts, and math, respectively.
