T.E.K.N.I.C. stands for Terrorizing Earthling Completely Nastily Impresses Kids.
A sequel to S.A.T.U.R.N. where, possessed by an informatic bug, RAMON-4 takes on the team.
It all starts with Kuki thinking about RAMON-4. She saved him during Operation S.A.T.U.R.N., but to be far from him was making her sad. She then goes to sleep. She wakes up during the night, because of a strange noise. The noise becomes louder, awakening all the other Kids Next Door. The sound becomes incredibly louder, and then something crashes into the Treehouse.
The KND decide to form one group to go and see. Numbuh 3, 4 and 5 make the group. During this time, Numbuhs 1 and 2 watch if anything happened in the technology. Numbuhs 3, 4 and 5 go upstairs, Numbuh 5 going first. She gets trapped by something on the corner. Numbuh 4 goes too, and fights. kuki only sees tentacles taking Numbuh 4 away. She must save them!
Numbuh 3 then gets a call on her W.A.T.C.H. It`s Numbuh 1 and 2. They are too trapped by these tentacles. Numbuh 3 goes, walking toward the tentacles, but these get back as she comes. Puzzled, she continues. She follows the tentacles up to the cheese tank. Then, she sees it.
Yes, it was RAMON-4! It grew from the last confrontation with Kuki, so he’s more intelligent and now he’s covered with tentacles. Worse: he trapped all Numbuh 3`s friends. Worst of all, he fell on the cheese tank, so all his technology was bugged. He mistook the other KND with enemies! Kuki tries to reason him, but he’s too bugged. She moves forward. She discovers that RAMON-4 keep one software away from bugs: Love. Any of its attacks can`t touch Kuki. So, Numbuh 3 move really near it and hug it. It had to work!
No, it didn’t work. Microchips burned by hot cheese, RAMON-4 got red. Tentacles took Kuki. RAMON-4 let go Numbuh 2, which fell on the cheese. Then Numbuh 4, Numbuh 5, Numbuh 1 . Finally, Kuki fell on the burning cheese.
