While Yumi is at a science class with her younger brother Hiroki and his best fiend Johnny, the others are surfing the digital sea in search of locating William's human DNA sequence or even Franz Hopper's. To delay them, X.A.N.A. takes control of a satellite and causes a shower of meteors to descend down on Kadic. Aelita, Ulrich and Odd return to Lyoko to deactivate the tower in the Desert Region.
To keep X.A.N.A.'s influence at bay, Jeremie has Yumi connect his laptop to the antenna to try and neutralize his attack. As the battle intensifies, Aelita brings herself in the line of fire and demands that Odd devirtualize her, forcing X.A.N.A. to call off his own attack.
The episode begins with an image of a comet approaching Earth. Meanwhile, the Lyoko Warriors conduct a search for Franz Hopper and William on the network, and Jeremie uploads a new program to the Skid that will allow it to better detect bio-signals. It is then shown that only Aelita, Odd, and Ulrich are aboard the Skid. Yumi, along with the rest of her science class, is busy helping fifth graders create a scale model of the solar system on the school track.
In the Skid, Aelita detects a faint trace of DNA in the area, and she begins traveling to its position. Meanwhile, in the Lab, Jeremie watches a news segment on the comet VG724, which is passing close to Earth later that day. On campus, Yumi is paired with her younger brother Hiroki and his friend Johnny, and together they are tasked with creating a scale model of Earth and the Moon and plotting their orbits.
In the Lab, the Superscan suddenly finds an activated tower in the Desert Sector, and Jeremie reluctantly orders the Skid to abandon the DNA signal and return to Lyoko. Meanwhile, it is revealed that X.A.N.A. has possessed a military-grade satellite, and uses it to fire a laser at VG724, causing it to break apart and change directions, creating in a massive meteor shower that begins falling towards Earth. After receiving a call from Jeremie, Yumi sneaks away from campus and begins traveling to the Factory.
After watching a suspicious emergency news report about the comet breaking apart, Jeremie researches VG724 and discovers the meteor shower is going to strike in the vicinity of the Factory, destroying the Supercomputer and everything else in the area. Aelita tries to convince Jeremie to find shelter, but he refuses, opting to stay to perform a Time Reversion at the right moment. Jeremie then calls Yumi, who is in the park, and tells her about the meteor shower. Fearing for her brother, Yumi disobeys Jeremie and returns to campus.
As the Skid approaches Lyoko, it is trapped in a firewall, forcing Aelita and Jeremie to work out way to crack it. On campus, Yumi informs Ms. Hertz about the meteor shower, and only convinces her once smaller meteors begin entering the atmosphere and become visible in the sky. Ms. Hertz convinces Mr. Delmas of the danger in turn, and he agrees to a calm and quiet evacuation of the school.
Jeremie deduces X.A.N.A.'s plan is to "kill two birds with one stone": destroy the Supercomputer with the meteor shower and trap Aelita in the Digital Sea so that she may be captured. However, he and Aelita manage to breach the firewall and free the Skid. Jeremie worries that the Skid will not make it back to Lyoko before the meteor shower, and decides to hack the military satellite and attempt to change the meteors' course away from Earth.
Kadic Academy is evacuated under the pretense of a fire drill as Jeremie gains access to the satellite. He then calls Yumi, who is still on campus, and asks her to hook his laptop up to the antenna on the roof of the Science Building so that he may link directly to the satellite. However, as she slips away from a crowd of students, she is spotted by Hiroki and Johnny, who decide to follow her.
Meanwhile, Aelita and the others arrive back on Lyoko, and use the Skid to travel to the activated tower. However, once she, Odd, and Ulrich disembark from the ship, they are confronted by William, three Tarantulas, and a Kankrelat. In the Science Building, Yumi reaches a locked security door, and Hiroki and Johnny catch up to her. Hiroki demands to know what Yumi is doing, but does not believe her when she tells him about the meteor shower. However, when a small meteorite crashes on campus and shakes the building, Hiroki concedes and picks the lock on the door for Yumi.
On Lyoko, Aelita, Ulrich, and Odd are vastly outnumbered, and are forced to retreat. Meanwhile, on the roof of the Science Building, Yumi and Johnny work together to hard-wire Jeremie's laptop to the antenna. However, the brunt of the shower is already too close to Earth to revise its course, and the largest meteor enters the atmosphere directly above the school. On Lyoko, Aelita notices the monsters are not targeting her, and realizes X.A.N.A. wants to capture her alive and destroy the Supercomputer, but if she is on Earth, X.A.N.A. cannot accomplish either of those goals. So, Aelita orders Odd to devirtualize her, and X.A.N.A. is forced to use the satellite to blow up the large meteor, saving Aelita, the Supercomputer, and the rest of the Earth.
X.A.N.A. deactivates the tower and admits defeat, and Jeremie performs a Time Reversion. After the return to the past, the Lyoko Warriors meet in Jeremie's dorm room, where Yumi announces that she, Hiroki, and Johnny received the highest grade in the class for their models of Earth and the Moon. The episode ends with Yumi half-jokingly worrying about her privacy now that she knows Hiroki can pick locks.
