After being defeated by Patrick, Dr. Scientist finds himself falling from the sky at great speed. He makes a rough landing on the insides of a cave. After lighting a match, the mad doctor sees a huge purple crystal in front of him. Knowing crystals are the only power source left, another plan hatches in his mind and he laughs maniacally.
One year has passed. Dr. Scientist has built a spacial vortex, currently orbiting Earth. In its interior, he discusses the final phase of his plan with Nat Peterson, a physicist who was taken by the doctor a long time ago, now serving as his right-hand man. He plans to use the new vortex to harness the power of the Master Crystal, the stone he found in the cave one year ago. However, the Master Crystal alone isn't enough to power the vortex. They still need the 25 "slave Crystals" to reach full power. Dr. Scientist is very aware of the situation and has thought ahead already.
Back on Earth, Patrick is sleeping and catching some rays with SpongeBob on Insanity Island. He types furiously on his laptop until the battery dies. SpongeBob wakes up Patrick and asks him to get him another battery from the store. Patrick gets going, only to be abducted and disappear along the way. His body soon materializes into a mysterious circular hall called the Warp Room.
Oblivious to what's going on, Patrick sees a holographic display of Dr. Scientist's head projected right in front of him. The doctor speaks to Patrick and tells him to retrieve the slave Crystals, using the doors in the Warp Room. After collecting the first Crystal, the doctor tricks Patrick into thinking he's out to save the world from a mysterious planetary force, caused by the alignment of all the planets in the Solar System. Patrick is led to believe that Crystals are the only means of stopping this force, so he gets them for the doctor. Meanwhile, SpongeBob has gotten a new battery and is trying to communicate with Patrick, to no success.
Later on, another holographic display appears. This time it's Fred Rechid. Still bitter at the doctor for taking credit of all his inventions, Fred tells Patrick if he wants to save the world, he has to collect the Earth's Gems, and not the Crystals. This way, he can create a lazer beam so he can destroy the vortex. To show that he means business, Fred says he'll send his forces out to stop Patrick until he ends the Crystal hunt.
Without any idea of which evil scientist to believe, Patrick decides to play it safe and sets out to collect both the Gems and Crystals. Far away from all that, SpongeBob picks up Dr. Scientist's signal and conducts a little research of his own...
