When the planet Bane of Fragnog is under attack, an alien/human hybrid girl, Betty is sent to Earth. Betty became a normal schoolgirl, who is dreaming about leaving Earth and living in the galaxy by wishing to become a Galactic Guardian. Maximus I.Q., a evil alien/feline hybrid is having his first plan to destroy Earth. Atomic Betty, Sparky and X-5 are all ready to protect the Earth and bring an end to Maximus' evil plan.
