Plot

It's the 300-year anniversary for the town of Tremorton. Queen Vexus and her henchbots are again fighting Jenny, Vexus is beat but escapes, leaving her robotic machine behind. Jenny accidentally ruins everybody's day by causing massive collateral damage to the town. Fed up with her, everyone in town, except for Brad, Tuck and Sheldon, shun her very presence and label her as nothing but an irresponsible troublemaker.

Jenny is upset by the townspeople's attitude and is overall fed up with being unappreciated by humans. While wandering the wreck site, Jenny stumbles onto the transporter Vexus used to escape and is transported to Cluster Prime. Cluster Prime is actually a robotic paradise where Jenny (not surprisingly) fits in and can be a normal teenager, even forming a group of friends who are robotic counterparts to her human friends, besides the friendly and popular Vega (voiced by Thora Birch). Jenny soon learns that the Cluster people have been lied to through the government's propaganda; they are being told that Jenny (shown as a grotesque, metal monster) is responsible for stealing the people's golden chips which grants them powers like fighting or flight.

Cluster forces led by Smytus invade Earth and enslave the people; all the while, the citizens find themselves in an extremely ironic predicament when they beg for Jenny to come and save them. Brad is determined to be a revolutionary leader and actually succeeds with childish pranks.

Jenny is soon exposed and is forced to flee but discovers that Vexus has stolen and hid the citizens' golden chips while scapegoating Jenny for the theft and that Vega is Vexus' daughter. The chips are returned to the citizens who learn the truth. Jenny is forced into a fight with Vexus with Vega coming in to save her. Vexus is forced to flee and Vega becomes queen, liberating Cluster Prime. Jenny returns to Earth, defeats Smytus, and is welcomed back with cheers.
