Synopsis for "Move Over, Rom -- There's a New Hero in Town!"

Rom stands above Clairton in a quandary as to his mission and his desire to return to Galador and see what has become of his home world. The Jones family, Brock, Lorrain, Danny, Annie, & Nell arrive in a moving van. Brock is the new football coach at Clairton High School. He is also secretly the Torpedo and on the run from the Rocketeers. Rom uses his Translator to scan the Clark’s encyclopedias in an attempt to learn as much as he can about Earth. He has also suspended a globe and used it to pinpoint the location of Wraith activity. As Rom soars through the night sky Brock Jones mistakes his rocket pods for those of the Rocketeers and leaps to the attack. The ensuing battle damages much of Clairton High’s sports facilities. As the Torpedo hurls toward Rom once again, the Spaceknight merely stands his ground. This causes the Torpedo to halt his attack and question him. Rom explains his mission to the Torpedo who puts the pieces together and realizes that he has battled Wraiths before. Elsewhere a meeting is called at the Delmar Insurance Company in New York City. All those called are Dire Wraiths and they are dispatched as Rocketeers to recover the Torpedo suit and kill Rom. In the “Saga of the Spaceknights” episode ‘Trouble in Paradise’,
