Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 1 is the twenty-seventh episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.
The episode begins on a damaged planet with Tini searching for Synaptak, who is trapped under rubble. However, as soon as she finds him, Vilgax attacks her. Then Ultimos, the leader of the Galactic Enforcers, arrives to battle Vilgax, only to lose. Psyphon, Vilgax's new right-hand man, arrives with several robot drones, who bring a machine to Vilgax. Psyphon uses the machine to transfer Ultimos' powers to Vilgax. He now has the powers of ten alien champions and prepares to invade Earth.
On Earth, Kevin and Gwen are fighting an alien creature known as Ssserpent, hoping that Ben will arrive soon, while Ben is still at his house, drinking a smoothie. Suddenly an alien named Lukik appears to give Ben a medal, thanking him for saving the universe. Ben adds the medal to a pile, having received tons of others. As he watches TV, Gwen calls, telling him to come and help. Ben transforms into Jetray and flies to the battle, becoming Cannonbolt as he lands. He easily defeats Ssserpent and reverts to human form to speak to his friends, who are upset with him.
The "Max-force" consisting of Max, Manny, Helen, Pierce, Alan, and Cooper are seen in the RV. Max's RV detects an alien attack, with Max declaring they are on a real mission. Police surround the area where Psyphon works on a machine. They attack him and he uses an explosive to defeat them. Vilgax arrives soon after, claiming he will take over the planet as the Max-force arrives in the RV.
The Max-force move in to battle Vilgax. Cooper creates his robotic armor and charges first, scaring Max. Vilgax tries to kill him, but Helen saves him by using her super-speed. He then takes down Helen with Ultimos' heat vision. Manny attacks next, but is easily overpowered in hand-to-hand combat, while Alan takes on his Pyronite form and attacks, but Vilgax uses his newly acquired ice breath to put out his flame and send him into a tree. Pierce is the next to attack, but is easily taken down.
The only ones remaining unharmed are Cooper, who is helping Helen up. Max had been hiding, using a mask to render himself invisible, and begins attacking Vilgax with a laser gun. He is defeated and Psyphon comes with the power draining machine, but Vilgax does not want the Max-force's powers, thinking of them as weak. He instead wants them to tell Ben to come and challenge him, or he will destroy the planet. Meanwhile, Ben, Gwen, and Kevin are drinking smoothies at Mr. Smoothy, where Gwen and Kevin talk about how angry they are with Ben's recent actions.
Ben reminds them that he has saved the entire universe, with Gwen adding that ever since then, he has become full of himself. Gwen pours a smoothie on Ben and he prepares to retaliate when the Max-force contacted him. Max is back in the RV, with the rest of the team injured. He tells Ben about the situation, showing him the video of the fight with Vilgax. Kevin brings Ben to a machine to hack into the Omnitrix in an attempt to re-unlock the Master Control. Kevin sets up the machine against Gwen's wishes, as she it thinks it is a bad idea.
Ben knows that with the Master Control, he can do almost anything. However, Azmuth appears as a hologram. He warns Ben not to stray from the hero's path and hack the Omnitrix. Ben thinks about the situation, and tries to hack into the Omnitrix with Kevin's help. But the Omnitrix overloads and, a massive explosion of energy wipes out the warehouse.
