The planes and parachutes belong to an advanced tribe called the Technos. They are led by a germ-phobic paraplegic called Ram. He has two wives, Java and Siva – Ebony’s sisters. They have vehicles, planes, futuristic weapons and computers. They bring electricity, water and food to the City, but have an ulterior motive. They set up Virtual Reality (VR) and get many city kids whole hooked on it, almost like a drug.

The Technos also take Bray, Tai-San, KC and Alice among others from the City. It is presumed that the missing Mallrats have been used in certain horrifying experiments to test VR. Trudy finds Amber and helps her give birth to a baby called Bray Jr. Lex is frantic over Tai-San’s disappearance, as is Amber over Bray’s. Pride and Salene find love together, much to May’s jealousy. Ram asks Ebony to be his third wife and she reluctently agrees, but she loves his commander, Jay. They eventually run away together but return to take down the Technos. Siva falls for Lex and leaves Ram and the Technos for him. Tai-San returns briefly, having been reprogrammed by the Technos. Mega – a Techno jealous of her marriage to Lex – deletes her.

The Mall Rats fight to bring the Technos down, and succeed by the end of the series. Ram is left to fend for himself on the outskirts of the City, alone and abandoned. The finale ends with the shock reveal of Zoot, apparently alive and well, although it is later revealed that it is just somebody who looks like zoot.

Series 4 is a departure from the first three series, and begins to move into science-fiction, with the introduction of the Technos, their weapons, and reality space. Some fans refer to Series 4 as the "jumping the shark" moment for The Tribe.

Series 5
