"Canterlot High is a mysterious place, with varying degrees of individual and unseen stories. When a mysterious stranger arrives and sets her sights on Flash Sentry, the girls quickly learn she has a dangerous secret. By that I mean she's an alien sent by a galactic council to see if humanity is worth bringing in, but despite this simple idea she decides to try to find the source of the magic and use it to conquer the galaxy, with Flash Sentry at her side as her reluctant king."

In camp, Rarity received Sweetie's text, trying to ignore the maligned Flash's attempts to make small talk.
"So I says-I say-I says" he says, "that she looked purple!"
"Flash, darling, I was there." Rarity reminds him as her ringtone rang. "Oh thank goodness!" She says aloud, taking it out and texting Sweetie Belle back.
"Who's goodness?" Flash asked himself before turning his attention to Applejack, who was busy with her powers, making lunch for the rest of them. She was chopping up vegetables with her second pair of hands while trying to open some ramen noodle packets with a pair of scissors using her others. "Hey Alvin!" He greets, Applejack wincing at his voice.
"It's Applejack, Flash. I'd appreciate you not talking to me while I do this." She said, trying to pay attention to the dangerous jobs.
"What a-a-ARE you doing anyways?" She flinched as he seemed to get louder.
"I'm trying to make dinner so we don't go to bed hungry again." The said, grabbing another carrot and sweeping the chopped up one into a bowl.
"I've never been. What's Hungary like?" She carefully began chopping into the carrot, trying not to mess up.
"You've been hungry before, Flash, you probably just don't remember it because of what the aliens did to you."
"Then tell me-tell me-tell me-tell me!" Flash stammered, Applejack growing annoyed as the knife grew closer and closer to her hand.
"It's when you get a great pai-AH!" She looked at her hand, the knife having stopped inches from it. She looks at her other hands and found that the scissors had nipped her finger. Taking off the mask, the hand vanished, although the pain didn't.
"Look what you made me do, go bother Pinkie or something!" She shook her head and tried to figure out why she still hurt.
"Pi-pi-Pinhead!" He greeted Pinkie, who was doing whatever it was she did up in a tree. "You're flying!"
"Hey Flash!" she greeted, climbing down and smiling. "What's up?"
"The sky." Flash answered. Pinkie groaned, having walked right into that one.
"No, I meant how are you doing?"
"Well, it seems to be fairly easy given you're doing it too."
"I'm starting to miss the depressed Flash." Pinkie confessed, "Maybe few pictures will jog your memory! I mean, I know Sunset says you're not Flash, but I can tell by that twinkle in your eye that you're the same boy you always were." Flash blinked as Pinkie began digging through her phone, the boy trying to get rid of the twinkle. "Oh here! Here's a picture of us back at junior prom!" She showed him a photo of her trying to eat a cake whole wearing a fancy pink dress. Flash was barely in the shot, and partially obscured by some kid who leaned in to give Pinkie the thumbs up.
"Or this one!" She took out a photo of one of her halloween parties. She was dressed as a professional cheerleader and was working on downing an entire bowl of punch, Flash was in the crowd, hidden, wearing fake glasses, a red and white beanie and a large sweater of the same colors.
"Neither of those see-see-seem familiar, maybe because I don't remember looking that good in a dress."
Pinkie snickers. "I have one more, you'll love it!" She took out a photo of him dancing with Twilight Sparkle at the Fall Formal, with the both of them in an awkward dance position, he having the smile of a man who's humiliating himself for a chance at the purple girl while Twilight wore the face of obliviousness. Also, pony ears and long hair that made it look like she had a tail. "Doesn't that bring back so many good memories?"
"Th-th-thankfully no." He pushed Pinkie's phone away and began heading back to the rest of the group, Pinkie popping up in front of him and giving him a big hug. "How did... wait, you... you don't make sense." He shoved her away, Pinkie backing up, confused.
"I don't get it!" she said to herself. "Usually that hug fixes everything! Well, maybe not everything, it didn't help Dash with her broken ribs."
Admittedly while I don't want him to be a clone (him being a moron is a change), I do think it would be funny to have him be a bit more maniacal like Max was. Maybe it can be a setting switch?
Ehh, they have limits on those things?
I didn't even mean entirely evil, just crazy, like a snarky aggressive wacko.

Twilight and Fluttershy exited the archives, empty-handed. "I don't get it." Twilight confessed while they looked through the ship, searching for those elusive blueprints. "We've been here for all of an hour and nobody's noticed that we've broken in."
Fluttershy shrugged. "Maybe we're lucky? O-oh no, now that I've said it our luck's gonna be gone. I'm sorry..."
"Fluttershy, don't be ridiculous, even if we're so lucky that we've been ignored, it would have run out by now." Twilight explained. "Obviously something else is happening..."
As the two discussed the Gambler's Fallacy, little did Twilight know she was correct. Flash was with one of the bots and explaining the situation.
"Now, listen. Inapan made me her first mate, right?" The robot stared at him. "That means I outrank Tested, right? So when she says attack the intruders I say that we should stay AWAY from the girls! Don't hurt them, alright?" The robot didn't respond, much to his annoyance. "Stupid robots..." He mumbled, unaware his commands were being followed. His command was sent through the robot's systems, the idea plain and clear to leave the intruders be, to avoid them at all cost. The ship's many bots' routes and subroutines worked violently to make sure that this command was followed, using the security cameras and footage to make absolutely sure they would not interfere with the girls.
The seemingly empty ship disturbed Twilight and Fluttershy, their footsteps the only noises they heard as they continued looking for the lab. Finally, after what felt like hours of looking (it was really only half-an-hour), the girls approached a mysterious section of the ship, where machines and computers worked on their own.
"Look!" Twilight shouted, pointing to a machine building a replication of her locket.
"Oh dear..." Fluttershy mumbled, approaching the machine as it finished. The machine was massive and resembled an industrial oil drill, a large piston on the top of it went up and down as a computer at the base displayed lines of text and showed images of her blueprint. As the machine finished, coming to a screeching halt, a large drawer pushed itself out at a height that would be considered waist high to the alien sisters (or whatever they called their waists). In the drawer was a freshly built version of Twilight's locket. When Twilight took it, the machine's drawer closed instantly and returned to work making another.
"Stand back Fluttershy." Twilight warned, putting on her mask and destroying the glowing device with her bare hand. "This will not be pretty."
The gambler's fallacy is a logical problem involving luck that states that if something good happens to you, it is less likely to happen in the future. Wikipedia has a long article detailing why this is bullshit using math and science and flipping of coins, but that's the gist of it.
