Greetings from Techadon is the thirty-fifth episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
In Bellwood, a massive rectangular object crash lands in the center of Bellwood, and from it emerges a yellow Techadon Robot. Meanwhile, at a local mini-golf course, Ben, Gwen, Kevin, and Julie are playing an even game of miniature golf. Ben casually uses Brainstorm to calculate a series of complex equations and easily uses them to score a hole-in-one in a Tokyo hole, causing Julie to demand an immediate rematch.
However, the Techadon from earlier arrives and attacks the group. Remembering his first victory against the Techadons, Ben transforms into Goop. However, this time he has far more difficulty with battling this one, forcing Kevin to spear the Techadon with a model of Tokyo Tower from the miniature golf course. Kevin salvages the Techadon's black box, with the intent of figuring out who sent it before selling it on the open market.
After Ben and Gwen drop Julie off, they go to Mr. Smoothy for drinks, and Gwen comments on how everything seems to come so easily to Ben. Gwen believes that despite how he acts, Ben does take things seriously and only makes what he does look easy. Kevin arrives with bad news: the Techadon was custom made by the Weapon Masters of Techadon themselves, specifically to fight Ben.
Now the other designs will take into account Ben's past battles with them and they won't stop coming after him until he's dead. At this time, a new grey Techadon arrives, and Goop is rendered useless against it by the past battle. Instead, Ben fights it using Rath and eventually defeats the Techadon at the cost of Mr. Smoothy. Gwen decides to hunt down the one who put the hit out on Ben, while Kevin and Ben locate the mobile factory from which the Techadons were spawning, which crash landed at the beginning of the episode.
Based on how Kevin stated that the Techadon job would have cost a fortune, Gwen hunts down Vulkanus at the Space Cafe, pointing out that he has the money to afford such an attack. Vulkanus admits to being the one who contracted the Techadons and states that he can't retract the bounty even if he wanted to. Argit arrives and tells Vulkanus that while he is celebrating his early victory, he's missing out on Ben's destruction, and at this Vulkanus leaves to watch "the show" while Gwen pays Argit for his help.
After Kevin and Ben track down the factory, they discover that it's indestructible and that Ben can't phase into it as Big Chill, nor can Kevin absorb it. A third Techadon is then created from the factory and proceeds to fight Ben and Kevin. Big Chill evolves into Ultimate Big Chill to rescue civilians and lures away the Techadon from the crowded city streets. Once in a safe area to fight, Ben switches to Echo Echo and later Ultimate Echo Echo to fight the Techadon, but can only keep it at bay.
Vulkanus arrives on scene and watches as the Techadon easily pummels Ultimate Echo Echo. Ben later asks Kevin how the Techadon is tracking him, and he states that they work visually. At this, Ultimate Echo Echo realizes that it's tracking the Ultimatrix, and Ben switches back to human form and hides it using his jacket. Not able to find the Ultimatrix, the Techadon begins looking around for it.
As a joke, Kevin plants his old ID Mask on Vulkanus' back and sets it to mimic the Ultimatrix symbol, thus causing it to attack him instead. With the Techadon issue resolved, the team decides to get Julie and play her in a rematch in mini-golf.
