Starbright (Part 2): Colliding Stars is the seventh episode of the first season, and the 7th episode overall, of the Jem animated series.


Horrified at the news of Ba Nee's impending blindness, Jerrica learns from her doctor that there is an experimental laser surgical procedure that could save Ba Nee's vision. However, the cost of the surgery is a staggering $250,000.

Having canceled all their tour dates to star in the movie, Aja comes with the idea to divert funds from Starlight Music to cover the cost of the surgery, but when they arrive there, they find the building closed down and without power. Joanie, the business manager of Starlight, tells the group that Eric Raymond has drained huge sums of money from Starlight Music in order to promote The Misfits' movie. Luckily, Jerrica and the others are able to pay the bills to restore the building's electricity and reclaim their equipment for their music.

Left with no other option, Jem and The Holograms are forced to return to the movie. Eric's demands push the group to their limits once again, especially when Jem nearly falls from a set display suspended several dozen feet in the air because Eric wouldn't provide a stunt double or a safety net in case she fell. Video records the accident hoping to use it to shut down the movie's production, but Jem pleads her not to, because of Ba Nee's surgery.

Songs featured


  • Eric: Okay. At the beginning of this shot, Jem, your mark is over there. (Jerrica moves through the background scenery) Nick, your with Jem at that point. There, the camera zooms into a tight close up of you, Nick. (Jerrica peaks around the corner at the Jem hologram, Eric, Nick and Pizzazz) We hold for a beat on you, then Pizzazz enters looking very beautiful. You can't take your eyes off of her. Then suddenly you forget Jem and take Pizzazz into your arms. Got that.

  • Clash: You're wasting tape on those has-beens.
  • Video: What would you know?
