It isn’t a particularly exciting race, but it’s cool to get more of the Aces. 1:00 Dec. 23 kicked off another run of three shorts. Bucket’s Quest was another droid-focused offering, with Team Fireball’s quirky astromech losing his helmet and getting a ridiculous temporary replacement. Treasure Chest, the second of these, sees them getting into a dangerous situation when they open a mysterious box given to them by pirate sleeper agent Synara San (Nazneen Contractor). However, one can’t help but wonder why they didn’t use the trapdoor seen in the previous short to get rid of the detonators.
