Episode guide
Season of the Skull
The Stranded Seven


While still on the hunt for the Dark One Worm, the gang is pulled into a massive spaceship by an artificial intelligence, whose colony was destroyed by Skeleton King, and is now bent on destroying anyone who has something organic. On top of that, it split Antauri from the others. The Hyperforce must find Antauri, and beat this A.I. with the aid of the Super Robot, which is suddenly displaying an intelligence of its own.


The title is a reference to the Ghost in the Machine. Which is British philosopher Gilbert Ryle's description of René Descartes' mind-body dualism.

The main antagonist is very similar to the SHODAN in the video game System Shock.
