Stress Test is the eighteenth episode of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. It first aired on October 22, 2000, and is the forty-eighth episode in production.


Buzz's comrades believe that their leader is beginning to crack under the pressure of constantly being on guard against Zurg. They send him to Dr. Animus, who recommends vacation time. Buzz is then sent to the relaxing planet Rhizome for some rest and relaxation. However, it seems Buzz was right, as Zurg is preparing an attack on that exact planet.

  • Nebula: "Well I for one don't plan on dying; not in this lifetime!"
  • Buzz: "So, you survived the fall, huh? Impressive."
  • Zurg: "Hold your fire, don't damage the...HYPER DEATH RAY!"
  • Zurg: "You do need a vacation."
