Although the official goal of the science expo has been "Peace Through Science", there have been several incidents that have been less than peaceful. A few years before the events of The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay, Pete White debuted an invention called "the Albino Bomb". A year before the events of the pilot episode, Brock Samson came with Dr. Venture and was involved in a violent incident that involved leaving a notable (blood) "stain".
In this episode, the U.N. Science Expo features a number of useful inventions, such as Professor Impossible's solar-powered car that creates a special ozone emission that repairs the ozone layer and Dr. Olafson's Hello Helmet (mentioned, not shown). Some others were less notable, such as Billy Whalen's quickly cobbled together diorama of "Where Rain Comes From".
Dr. Venture presented his Oo-Ray, so named for the ringed shape of its energy projections and the "OOOOO" noise it makes while operating. It showed little use beyond destructive capability, inadvertently melting Venture's city diorama. The U.N. Science Director expressed his extreme disappointment with Dr. Venture for bringing a weapon of war to a conference on peaceful science, to which Dr. Venture expressed his oblivious surprise.
Later, Otaku Senzuri was caught masturbating in front of the Oo-Ray. He dropped a smoke bomb upon discovery and attempted to escape. However, Hank Venture and Dean Venture spotted him behind a plant, and he was apprehended.
General Manhowers was more impressed with the Oo-Ray than the U.N. Science Director and ordered a hundred of them. Dr. Venture expressed his surprise and bewilderment about the Army's desire for the Oo-Ray, not recognizing its destructive capability, but he was very pleased nonetheless.
