Shredder sends out a message from Dimension X to the Turtles telling them to meet him at the Southside Dump so that he can kick their shells in. When the Green Team gets there, Shredder plans on using a dimensional teleporter to transport them back to the Technodrome. April and Vernon hear Shredder’s proposition over the air and decide to go there to get the scoop. The teleporter only manages to get Michaelangelo and Raphael, but it also takes April, Irma and Vernon as well.
After arriving in Dimension X, Michaelangelo, Raphael, April, Irma and Vernon manage to escape from the Technodrome, asking each other where they are going to go. Immediately after that, the Neutrinos show up to help them.
Back on Earth, Donatello and Leonardo try to get their trans-dimensional portal running so that they can bring the gang home. In order to accomplish this, they have to sneak in the Channel Six Building and borrow a used transformer.
In Dimension X, Michaelangelo and Raphael discover from the Neutrinos that the only portal is in the Technodrome. With their help, they break back into the Technodrome looking for the portal. Vernon, who is competing with April on the best news story, steals April’s camera and leaves the Technodrome looking for a bigger story. Michaelangelo and Raphael contact Donatello and Leonardo informing them that they are ready to go home. They don’t realize that Vernon has left until April tells them. Donatello tells them to hurry and find him because he does not know how long the portal will stay open.
While all this is happening, somewhere else in the Technodrome, Krang has discovered that the Technodrome is stuck in a dormant volcano. If they can set off enough explosives, it just might be enough to get the Technodrome moving back to Earth.
Michaelangelo, Raphael, April, Irma and the Neutrinos go out to find Vernon. They resuce him before he gets beat up by mutants and head back to the Technodrome. The gang spot the explosives near the Technodrome that Krang set and they rearrange them, hoping to ruin Krang’s plan.
Donatello transports them back to Earth just before the explosives go off and just before the portal on Earth closes.
In Dimension X, the volcano erupts, but due to the Turtles, it does not work out the way Krang had hoped. Instead, it just surrounds the lower part of the Technodrome leaving it stuck deeper into the volcano.
