Professor Gryffen discovers, to his great dismay, that K-9 has been performing unauthorized experiments with the interdimensional equipment that first brought him to Gryffen’s lab. But instead of restoring K-9’s lost memories, the latest experiment renders him dangerously unstable and he even fires on Gryffen. Starkey and Gryffen have to convince K-9 to restore his own recent memories and discontinue his experiments.

Notes: a “clip show” consisting of a few “framing” scenes meant to link clips from previous episodes, Mind Snap was intended primarily to keep the production schedule on track without leaving a dent in the show’s budget. As such, the only new footage filmed for this episode features Keegan Joyce as Starkey and Robert Moloney as Gryffen, with new K-9 lines recorded by John Leeson; all other cast members (including those credited as guest stars) appear only in scenes from past episodes. This is also the first time that K-9 co-creator Bob Baker has been credited as a scriptwriter in the spinoff series.
