When the lights go out in the Loud House, the kids entertain themselves by taking turns telling parts of a story.
NOTE: The colored text indicates which sibling is telling their respective part of the story.
On a particularly snowy day, the kids sit in the living room, looking for something good to watch on TV. Suddenly, the power goes out. Looking at his phone, Lynn Sr. says that the power outage was caused by a tree knocking down a power line. The kids immediately pull out their phones to pass the time, but Lynn Sr. forbids them from using them, saying that in case the power outage lasts a long time, one of their phones needs some power so they can make contact. As the kids begrudgingly comply with his demands, Rita and Lynn Sr. proceed to walk around town to check on their neighbors. The moment they leave, Lincoln tells his sisters that they can pass the time by taking turns telling a story where they can tell it in any way they want. Lincoln decides to go first.
The story begins with a space cowboy named Triton, who is flying through space heading back home. Suddenly, he is warned that his ship is running out of power, forcing him to land on a nearby planet. While looking around, he spots something behind a bush. He discovers it's a woman named Princess DeLola. Triton asks DeLola if her planet has anything to power his ship, and DeLola explains that her kingdom used to have a crystal that could power anything, but then a tree fell on top of it, breaking it into five pieces, and scattering all over the land. After she tells the story, Triton and DeLola decide to team up and find the five pieces. DeLola believes that she found one of the missing shards in the pond. As Triton and DeLola look into the pond, a frog who goes by the name Ribbon pops out. Triton and DeLola ask Ribbon if he saw a shiny rock nearby, and Ribbon says that he ate it so he can glow in the dark. Despite this setback, Ribbon explains that he knows where another crystal shard is, and advises the two to follow him.
Suddenly, the four find themselves on a basketball court in space, and something quickly comes crashing down. It turns out to be an alien athlete named Tricksy, who has two crystal shards attached to her shoes, which allow her to play her sports really fast. When Tricksy refuses to give up the shards, Triton makes a deal: if they can score three points before her, they get her shards, but if she wins, they can have the shards they acquired. Tricksy accepts the wager, believing to be an easy win. The four decide to call up the spirit of the greatest basketball player ever, Dominic Dunkster, to help them. Upon being summoned, the game officially starts. As the group plays against Tricksy, the two manage to score two points each. As Tricksy tosses the ball to make her third goal, the ball suddenly bounces off the backboard, and Dominic quickly tosses the robot to ricochet the ball into the net, giving the group the win, and forcing Tricksy to surrender her crystal shards. Seeing Tricksy so down, Triton decides to make her feel better by giving her his shoelaces, since they're anti-gravity.
As the group continues looking, they suddenly encounter a mermaid. They discover that she has the last crystal shard, as she's using it to have her phone constantly charged. DeLola asks the mermaid is she's willing to give her crystal shard to the group, and the mermaid states that while she'd love to, she fears that if her phone were to run out of power, she won't be able to talk to her boyfriend. As the group tries to figure out what to give in exchange, the robot states that if the mermaid wants her phone to constantly be charged, they just simply need to give her an alternate source of electricity. Looking around, the robot decides to use some pieces of wood to build a water wheel to put right under the waterfall, where the wheel will spin endlessly, thus giving the mermaid all the electricity she wants. Seeing how much good they did for her, the mermaid proceeds to give the group her crystal shard. As for the crystal shard that Ribbon ate, Ribbon proceeds to poop it out, much to Triton and DeLola's disgust. With all five pieces of the crystal recovered, the gem reforms itself and starts sending out beams of energy, allowing the robot to recharge her battery, and allowing Triton to recharge his ship.
Suddenly, the power comes back on, and Rita and Lynn Sr. arrive back just in time. As the siblings proceed to go back to watching TV and using their phones, they express disinterest in what's on TV and state that they want to tell another story.
