Space Racers

Season 1, Episode 2 of 26

Animation 1: Total Eclipse - Story: With the first solar eclipse in 26 years looming, Stardust Space Academy is preparing for the "Eclipse Run," a tradition wherein two random students are chosen to race to the Moon and back during the eclipse. As the big day draws near, two Racers are picked: Eagle and... little Starling?!! Eagle is both amused and aghast at the lack of competition. But Starling is determined to compete, so she engages Robyn to tutor her. Thinking the race will be a piece of cake, Eagle lets his guard down and begins to slack off... until the solar eclipse strikes, plunging the race into darkness - an event that overconfident Eagle did not bother to prepare for.

Animation 2: Fly Like an Eagle - Story: A deep space probe, designed to collect data in far off galaxies, prematurely reappears in our Solar System... on a collision course with the Sun. Headmaster Crane knows if it gets too close to the Sun's gravity, the probe and all its collected research will be lost forever, so he assigns Eagle, Robyn and Hawk to intercept it and guide it safely back to Earth. The problem is, Eagle has a faulty heat shield that must be repaired, so at the 11th hour he's scrubbed from the mission - leaving Hawk and Robyn to take off without their usual leader. How will they save the day without Eagle's help?
