To Boldly Flee

Luke Mochrie is contacted by the Plot Ghost of Last Angry Geek, who urges him to learn the ways of the Plot and do so by going on the Internet. There, Luke finds Oancitizen, who is more than happy to be a mentor, which he describes as someone who can not be told wrong. Oan, after putting on Yoda earmuffs, jumpcuts to the ship with the power of the Plot and begins to teach Luke.

However, the latter tells him he only has a few minutes, so Oan simply stabs him in the forehead with a syringe filled with knowledge of the Plot. Ready, Oan decides to accompany the crew on their assault, believing that he could "milk this cameo more".

In their plan to defeat the Executor and destroy his Death Bomb, Oan disguises himself as Non and the Nostalgia Chick as Ursa in order to distract Zod and his men while Angry Joe and Marzgurl sabotage their command over the Executor's fleet. They distract Zod by performing a musical number called "I'm a Distraction", but the plan is botched when Oan breaks his character by ending the song with a tenor, which Zod described as beautiful while ordering his troops to kill them.

Oan was present at AskThatGuy's low budget Hollywood Coke party.
