BIOK

18th of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by Christy Marx. First aired November 11, 1990.









Previous episode: The Mind Mangler
Next episode: Stuck on You

Half of Sky Patrol dons Vapor uniforms and attacks Joe Headquarters with Hurricanes as part of a demonstration of HQ's new automated defense system. All Joe vehicles are tied into the computer, over Skydive's objections. Meanwhile, Cobra's new AI system BIOK begins hijacking all networked electronics, including the Joes' defenses. BIOK traps Lady Jaye in the General and uses the mobile fortress to attack Skydive.

BIOK then defies orders from Cobra Commander and Destro, deciding to take over the world himself. Destro sends a robot hawk to Sky Patrol to lead them to a remote Mayan temple where BIOK can be deactivated using a virus on a disk, while BIOK has placed the General in a standoff against the US Army. Skydive talks down the Army and stalls for time by challenging BIOK to a duel, Sky Hawk vs. Sky Raven. The temple mission is successful, and the virus shuts down BIOK everywhere except in the Sky Raven. Lady Jaye is rescued and Skydive destroys the Sky Raven, and BIOK along with it.
