"Of Course You Know This Means War And Peace" is the two-part finale to the second season of Duck Dodgers. It's the 25th and 26th episodes of the second season, first aired as one-hour special on February 25, 2005, though it was already aired internationally in 2004.
Dodgers accidentally causes an incident during a peace treaty between Earth and Mars and gets Cadet to take the fall. While in prison, the Cadet is angry at Dodgers and terminates their friendship. Meanwhile, one of the Martian Generals, Z-9, takes the opportunity to plot a military coup on Mars by betraying Queen Tyran'hee and holding her hostage, sending Star Johnson to prison after the latter learns about the plot, and forcing Commander X-2 on the run as a wanted criminal. Z-9 also plans to use Dodgers in order to get the shutdown codes of Earth's defense system to finalize his takeover of not only Earth, but also the rest of the Galactic Protectorate.
Determined to set things right, Duck Dodgers rescues Commander X2 from Z-9's forces and breaks Captain Star Johnson and Cadet out of prison to help him rescue the Queen and stop Z-9 in his tracks. Despite Cadet's cold attitude toward Dodgers after he made him take the blame for his blunder, they manage to deliver the shutdown codes away from Z-9 and rescue the Queen during a battle. Z-9 is then arrested, sacked of his ranks, and jailed for his war crimes, while Dodgers manages to have all charges against Cadet dropped by selflessly confessing his responsibility for the peace treaty incident. Cadet reconciles with Dodgers, who is later subjected to 500 hours of community service as punishment for his actions.
