After the battle, Ratchet regrouped with the Rangers at the drop ship. Ranger: "Sir, we have an incoming transmission from the President."

A portable screen appeared, on the screen was a cat-like man with a dark reddish-brown colored fur and somewhat tall, pointy ears. President: "How are things on the front line, soldier?"

He then noticed Ratchet and Clank. President: "Is…is that…Secret Agent Clank?" Clank: "Greetings, sir, we are here to help." President: "Well, this is an honor. I can see that you brought your chauffeur along." Ratchet: "What? No, no, no, hold on a second, sir-"

Just then, the President looked in another direction and became startled by something. President: "Oh! Is that so?"

He then looked back towards the duo. President: "Gentlemen, it seems that an unidentifiable space station has just appeared in the galaxy. Oh, no, I'm worried about what this could be." Ratchet: "Let me have a look at that space station."

The screen switched on to the image of the space station in question. Ratchet: "Wait a minute, I recognize that design. That's…the Impossible Space Station of the Future!" Clank: "Hm…yes, that is the ISSF, alright. The exterior structure is indeed very distinguishable."

The screen was switched back to the President. President: "I'm glad that you recognize it, although, I don't know about the name. The words "impossible" and "future" seem very much out of place given the primitive characteristics of it." Clank: "Sir, that space station was built by some friends of ours on a very distant planet known as Earth. Their kind has yet to take up a lifestyle of space travel, so the assembling of spacecrafts such as this is much like an impossible dream to them, hence the seemingly unfitting name." President: "Hm…you don't say. Well, regardless, I need you both to investigate this pronto." Ratchet: "It will be our pleasure, sir. Let's go, Clank." Clank: "Ah, yes, this is indeed a reunion that I know you have been looking forward to."

Ratchet and Clank returned to their ship, got in and took off.

They were soon approaching the ISSF. Ratchet started to press some buttons on the console. Clank: "I cannot believe that they have managed to assemble a second model of the ISSF within an entire year. I would assume that Dr. Possible has received much help in doing so." Ratchet: "Last I heard, he's had Global Justice pitch in with a lot of their intel and know-how on advanced technology. He would go on and on about how amazingly beneficial they have been to this project. I was also impressed by this." Clank: "Hm…interesting. Do you think Dr. Possible could be in there and has brought his family along, including Ms. Possible?" Ratchet: "I would think so, but there's only one way to find out."

He then pressed and held down one more button on the console. Ratchet: "This is Ratchet calling the ISSF. Do you read me?" Kim: "Ratchet? Is that really you!?" Ratchet: "Kim? Kim Possible!? I was hoping you would be in there!" Kim: "I would think that you want to enter, right?" Ratchet: "Yes! Will you allow me permission to dock?" Kim: "Sure, absolutely! Just hang on a minute."

Soon enough, one of the doors on the space station opened up and they were able to enter. As soon as they were inside, the ship landed in the docking bay and Ratchet and Clank got out. They immediately spotted Kim and Ron, smiling at them as they stood right next to each other. Kim: "Ratchet!"

She ran towards him and embraced him very closely. Ratchet: "Kim…"

They stood in front of each other, very happy to be reunited. Kim: "It's so good to see you again." Ratchet: "Same to you. All those times spent chatting with you on the transmitters just doesn't feel the same as seeing you in person." Kim: "I feel the same way. Come on, my dad and I really want to show the place to you."

He walked off with her, Clank followed. They stopped in front of Ron. Ratchet: "Hey, Ron. How's it going?" Ron: "Oh, same old, same old, here and there" Clank: "I would assume that Rufus is also here with you."

Rufus popped out of Ron's pocket. Rufus: "Ta-da!" Ratchet: "Yep, there's Rufus. Same place he's always been. Not much has changed, has it?"

Kim and Ron looked at each other, worried about something and then back at Ratchet. Kim: "Why don't we go head over to the other decks? My parents have been very anxious to see you again."

They then walked into a nearby elevator and were lifted up.

They arrived on one of the decks. Ratchet looked out, amazed at everything he saw. It was a very quaint living area, which came with a kitchen, a dining area and a living room on the other side of the room. There was also a hallway that leads to the bedrooms. Ratchet: "Whoa…"

He had a chance to walk into the middle of the living area and looked around. Ratchet: "This is amazing…! It looks a lot different from what Drakken and Shego did to the other one." Dr. P.: "So, you like what we've done with the place, ay, Ratchet?"

He then looked towards the hallway and spotted Dr. Possible and Mrs. Possible. Ratchet: "Dr. Possible!"

He rushed over to both of them. As soon as he stopped directly in front of them, Dr. Possible laid his hand on his shoulder. Dr. P.: "It's been a while, hasn't it, my boy?" Ratchet: "I'll say it has!"

Mrs. Possible then gently embraced him for a brief moment. Mrs. P.: "It's so good to see you again, Ratchet." Ratchet: "I can't believe this! Wh-what are you guys doing all the way out here?" Mrs. P.: "We came to see you." Ratchet: "Really…?" Dr. P.: "Of course. We wanted to show you the brand new Impossible Space Station of the Future as well as the amazing new features that the other one didn't have." Ratchet: "I have to say, you guys have done a really great job. It looks a lot better than the first one." Dr. P.: "I think so, too. That first model was not one that I was particularly proud of. I mean, sure I was finally able to work on my life-long dream, but there were some things about building that model that just didn't feel right throughout that entire process." Ratchet: "It probably had something to do with the men funding that project wanting to make your dream into a lethal weapon, not to mention one that was going to be used to wipe out all life on Earth." Dr. P.: "Yes, that sounded like the very reason for the whole process making me very uneven. Thank goodness you guys got rid of that nightmare. It allowed us to start anew and build my dream exactly what I wanted it to be. I am so glad of the work that we have done so far." Ratchet: "Uh…so far?" Dr. P.: "Yes, there are still a few more things that need to be done. We're currently working on an apartment room for our Kimmicub for when she's old enough to live on her own. There are also a few other maintenance work that are being cared for now. Jim and Tim are handling them as we speak." Ratchet: "Uh…mind telling me why the twins are taking care of that?" Dr. P.: "Well, they volunteered to deal with it. They have been very eager with working on this since the very beginning and, let me tell you, handling any and all forms of work that needs to be done couldn't make them any happier." Wade: "Oh, that's right and they have been doing a really great job at a lot of the maintenance work." Ratchet: "Huh? Did someone turn on a COMM Link just now?" Wade: "Uh…actually, I'm right over here, Ratchet."

They looked over and spotted Wade standing alongside both Jim and Tim. Ratchet: "Wade? Is that you?" Jim, Tim: "Clank!"

Jim and Tim ran over towards Clank. Jim: "Hey, Clank, long time, no see." Tim: "How have you been?" Jim: "We really missed you." Tim: "I can't believe we're able to see again." Clank: "Uh…it is good to see you again, too, gentlemen." Ratchet: "Wade! I can't believe it! Are you really here? Like, in person?" Wade: "That's right. I came here with Ron and the Possibles to help out Dr. Possible with the few final touches."

He then walked up to Ratchet. Wade: "But I have to say, I'm really glad to be here. I get a chance to come face to face with a real life alien for the first time ever! I've been looking forward to this since the day we first met you! This is so cool! I really get to observe you up close and in person!" Ratchet: "Uh…I really don't…hey, what about Clank? Isn't he someone else that you've wanted to take a closer look at?" Wade: "Oh? Clank? Yeah, I have been looking forward to also checking out alien robots." Jim: "Not now!" Tim: "We called first dibs on Clank." Jim: "We're very fascinated with alien robots." Tim: "They're the coolest." Jim: "You can check him out after we're done." Tim: "Yeah! Wait your turn." Wade: "Um…OK…" Dr. P.: "By the way, Ratchet, I can tell that you've been using that gravimetric warp drive we've been working on together." Ratchet: "I sure have. It works a lot better than we have dreamt of. It exceeded even my highest expectations." Dr. P.: "Glad to hear it, my boy. We make a great team." Ratchet: "Yeah, we have." Mrs. P.: "But what are you doing all the way out here in this other galaxy?" Ratchet: "Clank and I came here after we saw a news report of my home planet, Veldin, being invaded by a nasty alien race known as the Tyhrranoids. We were fighting them a little while before we arrived here." Mrs. P.: "So, you saw your home planet in danger and came all the way here to its rescue? What a guy." Kim: "Um…guys? May…Ron and I have a word with Ratchet in…private?"

Both of Kim's parents and Wade looked at her as though they seemed concerned about something. Ron also seemed worried Dr. P.: "Uh…sure, Kimmicub. We'll…leave you guys alone."

He and Mrs. Possible went over for Jim and Tim, grabbed them both and pulled them back with them into the hallway. Wade stopped to look back before walking back into the hallway with the Possibles.

Kim and Ron were alone with Ratchet and Clank. Ratchet: "So, how have you guys been? I haven't seen you guys in a long time." Ron: "But didn't you chat with KP a few days ago?" Ratchet: "I meant I haven't seen you guys in person." Ron: "Oh…uh, right…" Kim: "Um…Ratchet. There's something I need to tell you. Ron and I…We're…dating."

Ratchet was very dumbfounded by this. At first, it was very difficult for him to react any other way. Little by little, his mood began to change. Ratchet: "That…that…that's great! Oh, wow! I knew you guys would end up together one day!" Ron: "You…you did?" Ratchet: "Yeah, of course! You both seemed so close to each other. It seemed like it was bound to happen sooner or later!" Ron: "So…you're not mad or upset about this?" Ratchet: "No, not at all. Besides, Kim and I already had a talk about us. She feels that she should be with someone her own species and…I agree with her. I can't keep her from her kind." Ron: "Uh…you guys…you're sure about this, right? KP, are you really…" Kim: "Yes, Ron! I…I made my decision…!"

Everyone stood quiet for a bit. Just then, the President's transmission broke the silence. President: "So, gentlemen, how's the search within the mysterious space station going? Did you find anything lethal within…?"

He then spotted Kim and Ron. President: "What in the…!? What are these strange creatures!?" Ratchet: "Whoa! Relax, Mr. President! These are friends of ours from Earth. This is Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable." Clank: "And let us not forget Ron's pet naked mole rat Rufus."

Rufus popped out of Ron's pocket again. Rufus: "Hi." President: "Well, it is a pleasure to meet you both and especially you, little Rufus. I am just so relieved that the space station does not belong to Dr. Nefarious."

Kim and Ron both snickered. Clank: "Uh…Dr. Nefarious, sir?" Ratchet: "Yeah…I remember hearing the name on that news report. They mentioned that it is believed he was responsible for that Tyhrranoid invasion on Veldin." President: "I'm afraid that's all true. We must put a stop to him immediately." Kim: "And how do you guys plan on doing that?" President: "Well, as we know, there has been only 1 man who has ever faced him and survived." Ron: "And who is this man?" President: "I have just received a top secret report on that man's whereabouts. Here, take a look."

They watched a show called "Nature's Mysteries" of an all-too familiar figure seen in a jungle on a planet called Florana. Kim: "Oh, you cannot be serious…" Ron: "Uh, that "top secret report" looks a lot more like an episode of a TV show." President: "Regardless, we need you to find this man. The fate of the galaxy may depend on it." Kim: "Uh, I think not. The fate of the galaxy should depend on someone, oh, I don't know, much more competent and trustworthy?" Ratchet: "Kim may have a point. I mean, are you sure this is the guy we need, Mr. President? He seems like kind of a…you know…wacko." President: "You both may be right, but he's the best chance we've got." Ron: "Is he for real?" Kim: "I'm afraid so." President: "I know you won't let me down…right?" Ratchet: "Uh…well…" Kim: "Don't worry, Mr. President, we're already on it." Ratchet: "Wait! Hold on a second. We? Such as…uh…Are you…you're not planning to…are you really…?" Kim: "That's right, Ratchet. Ron and I will be coming, too. This will be like a great opportunity to get reacquainted after an entire year of just communication with you via COMM links. You are OK with that, right?" Ratchet: "Are you kidding me? I have always been looking forward to this. It will be just like old times." Kim: "Great! Ron and I will get ourselves ready. Let's go, Ron."

She walked off. Ron: "I'm right behind you, KP."

He rushed off after her. Ratchet and Clank stood by and watched them walk off. Clank: "Hm…did you…honestly believe that they would end up together?" Ratchet: "What? Uh…yeah! Of course I believe that!"

Clank looked at him in a discontent and suspicious manner. Ratchet: "Don't give me that look! I really did believe that they would." Clank: "Right…another thing, are you…agreeable with her being with Ron?" Ratchet: "Yes, I'm OK with it! Really! I…I just want her to be happy and if being with her own kind does that, then…I'll always be supportive of that."

Clank then brought out a concerned look on his face.
