Escape from Aggregor is the fifth episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
Four Arms is fighting a Yeti that is being mind-controlled by Dr. Animo while Gwen and Kevin disable the device that Animo built that will turn people into Yeti. Four Arms is able to turn the Yeti against Animo by turning into Brainstorm and use his electrical brain power to affect the mind control headband. After Animo is contained. Kevin is able to disable the device.
Back in Bellwood, a turtle-like alien rampages through the city, and Ben, Gwen, and Kevin fight it. Realizing the creature doesn't speak English, they use their Plumber Badges as a universal translator. He reveals his name to be Galapagus and is looking for Ben for help. He's from a peaceful planet called Aldabra where he and his friends ate grass all day, shared philosophies, and enjoyed the great gift of life. Galapagus said his kind lacks aggression. It was normal until Aggregor showed up, absorbed one of his friend's powers, then later on, he was captured by Aggregor. His goal was to absorb Galapagus' powers along with four others from other species, such as Bivalvan, P'andor, Andreas and Ra'ad. These other aliens constantly call him names such as "turtleboy" and "amphibian face". The five aliens eventually decide to work together to free themselves from Aggregor.
They free themselves and get their powers back. P'andor and Andreas decide to take over the ship, but Bivalvan, Ra'ad, and Galapagus decide to call for help. Magister Prior Gilhil responds to the message just as the aliens are taken back to their prison, but Gilhil is unfortunately attacked by Aggregor. (It's confirmed by Dwayne McDuffie that he was killed on the spot).
When the aliens escape again, Galapagus has neutralized their powers and gives them to Aggregor in exchange for freedom, but he double-crosses Aggregor and neutralizes him and leads the aliens to an escape-pod. They crash-land on Earth in Florida and decide to separate to look for help while Bivalvan repairs the ship. Before Ben contacts the Plumbers, the Ultimatrix scans Galapagus' DNA for Ben. They then give Galapagus a ride home, but the Plumber riding the ship is revealed to be Aggregor in disguise and recaptures Galapagus to absorb his powers.
