Above and Beyond is the forty-third episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.

Plot

Max sends a message to the Plumbers' Helpers from a space station where Ben is on a rampage and attacking his own grandfather and acting strangely hostile and malicious. Alan, Helen, Manny and Pierce arrive to the space station and plan to stop Ben. Pierce suggests they work and stay together, but no one listens. Helen, the first to leave the group, finds Ben, but is defeated by his Echo Echo form. Later the team splits into two.

Alan and Pierce get separated and Pierce ends up getting attacked and beaten by Goop. Later, Manny and Helen get separated and Manny gets attacked and beaten by Rath. Helen, Manny and Pierce regroup and try to find Alan. Alan soon finds Ben, who attacks him after becoming Big Chill. Pierce, Manny, and Helen rescue Alan, and they surround Big Chill, only for him to phase through the floor, laughing maniacally.

Pierce suggests they work and attack like a team to bring Ben down. Soon, they find Ben, who taunts them before going Humungousaur at full size and fights the Plumber's Helpers. They soon suggest to attack Ben all at once and throw Humungousaur into space. Unfortunately Ben's earlier fight with Manny as Rath damaged the station's gravity control system, further more the fight with Humungousaur just now also destroyed their ship.

With the damage to the station it's on a collision course with the city of London so they sacrifice themselves for Earth by self-destructing the ship but it doesn't explode. Max and Ben reveal themselves, and tell them that it was a test to see if they were cut out for Plumber duties, except the part with the space station crashing to London, proving that they're also willing to sacrifice themselves for the good, and that they're soon heading to the Plumbers' Academy.

Manny: I'm sick and tired of waiting around. Let's go out and find some action!
Pierce: No way, Manny. The Wrench told us to wait here.
Manny: So what?
Pierce: So when he's not here, I'm in charge. You wanna go on a field trip? First, you have to get by me.
Manny: Sounds like almost ten seconds of pure entertainment!

Ben: (trying to make himself warm) I can't believe you guys ejected me into space! (shivering) That's-that's just wrong!
Pierce: (shocked with the other's to see Ben alive) What's going on over here?
Max: Let me use the emergency thrusters to put us back into a safe orbit and then I'll explain.
Ben: This satellite isn't a storage facility. It's a training station.
Pierce: This was all just a test?
Max: The "Ben being out of control and attacking me" scenario was a test.
Ben: But not "the satellite about to crash into London" part. We really knocked this thing out of orbit.
Manny: Cool! (gets hit by Helen by her elbow) What?
Max: You put the safety of others ahead of your own lives.
Ben: Next stop, Plumber's Academy.
Alan: (shocked with the others, questioning Helen) Did he just say Plumber's Academy?
Helen: We're gonna be real Plumbers!
Max: Make me proud.
(Helen and Ben both hug Max, while Pierce, Manny and Alan get into a little conversation thus ending the episode)
