With the Colossus running low on money, Hype convinces Captain Doza to allow the Aces to race with his former employer Vranki, a Hutt who owns a hotel and casino in the Voxx Cluster, in order to win money from him. However, the unscrupulous Hutt cheats Hype in a rigged race with his racer droids, forcing Hype to work for him, and prevents the others from leaving unless they allow Hype to stay. Captain Doza is forced to send his Ace pilots to compete with Vranki's racer droids in the Voxx Vortex 5000 in an attempt to win Hype back. The Hutt uses a series of dirty tactics to beat the Ace competitors, leaving only Torra and Kaz. With the help of Neeku, who has figured out that Vranki is using algorithms, Kaz and Torra race against Vranki's racer droids. At the advice of Kaz, Doza convinces Vranki to wager 50,000 credits with the promise of getting the Colossus if he wins. But if they win, all the pilots are to be freed and they also get to keep the 50,000 credits. Though Torra loses, Kaz manages to beat Vranki's droids with Neeku's help despite being hindered by Vranki's goons. A humbled Vranki is forced to release the indentured Aces and give them the prize money, allowing them to leave. Hype refuses to work with his former employer again.
