In pursuit of answers, Luna, Jupiter and Clyde go off on an imaginary adventure to do their research. They transform into the object or creature they are studying so they can personally experience the answers to their questions. When the threesome is finished with the "field trip" Luna summarizes everything they have learned with a show and a song.
