Krang is on trial for War Crimes! Fugitoid has asked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to help them protect the witnesses, but in the shadows lays an assassin set to stall the trial.

What you need to know: Zak, Kala and the Turtles travel through Dimension X to save and bring back key witnesses for Krangs trial. Almost getting home, they run into a massive swarm of bugs. With some unexpected help from allies, they pass safely home to prepare for the trial.

What you’ll find out: Order in the court! Dimension X versus General Krang is about to commence. Professor Honeycutt and Donatello ready themselves with evidence and witnesses who have been on the end of Krangs madness, so that they may put Krang in jail for a long time. But, General Krang still has a few tricks up his tentacles that will clear him from his crimes.

What just happened? As the trial begins to go underway, Krangs lawyer puts the witnesses on the spot on their ties with his client. Professor Honeycutt and Donatello start to realize that the trail is not going in their favor. Hidden from the other witnesses, Professor Honeycutt feels that it is time to use his secret weapon; one that will truly swing the trail back into their favor. As he arrives, General Krang sees who they have brought and begins to lose it; the planet starts to become attacked. The court must take a brief pause until everything is cleared and safe to continue. Alone in his room the judge sits and eats while in the shadows someone watches.

Final Thoughts: Just when you thought the war is over and Krang is going to jail, here comes Krang with his slick lawyer. Things really are not looking good for the Turtles and Co. as now the trial has been stopped. What will Krang think of next that will get him out of this trial? What was great to see was the new allies that came to the aid of Zak, Kala, and the Turtles. Seeing these new allies and what they asked for at the end will be something that we must keep a close eye on. Nothing is going right for what was supposed to be the trial of the century; in the end, can the Turtles and their friends put Krang away or will Krangs assassin end the trail before it really goes underway?
