EXT. JUSTICE SQUAD ISLAND

               A long shot of the entire island.  Starseeker flies into the
               picture and comes to a landing on a smooth lava flow next to
               a jungle.  The camera pans over to show JUSTICE SQUAD HQ.



               INT. THE COMMAND DECK

               CORDAINE is at the helm.  Hiller is at the science station. 
               Luna is at the engineering station and Nightflyer is at
               another station.  Ivy, in holographic form, is standing on
               the projector and Ultragirl is sitting on the command deck
               couch.  There is a shutter on the Command Deck and everyone
               lurches slightly.

                                   CORDAINE
                         ...and we're down.

                                   HILLER
                         Good job, Mr. Cordaine.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Thank those who flew us here, sir. 
                         Without them, we wouldn't have made
                         it.

                                   HILLER
                         At least the ship is in one piece.

               A large support beam falls from the ceiling and crushes one
               of the unmanned stations in the background.  Hiller,
               Cordaine, Luna, Nightflyer, Ivy, and Ultragirl slowly turn
               and look.  Hiller sighs, then looks at the members of Justice
               Squad.

                                   HILLER
                         I think it's high time you owe us
                         some answers.

                                   LUNA
                         I think you owe us some answers.

                                   HILLER
                         Foop you.  You owe me a starship.

                                   LUNA
                             (confused)
                         Foop you?

                                   HILLER
                         Foop you back!

               Ivy rubs her head.

                                   IVY
                         Oy!  What about Doug!?

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         Yes, the boy.  Where is he?

                                   HILLER
                         I told you.  If one of my people
                         saw him on the ship, they picked up
                         him and evacuated him with them. 
                         Question is, what was he doing here
                         in the first place?  I'd call that
                         bad parenting.

                                   IVY
                         I'm gonna...

                                   HILLER
                         What?  Yell at me?  Glare
                         menacingly?  That'll work.

                                   LUNA
                         I can do something to you, old man.

                                   HILLER
                             (deadpan)
                         Like what?  Do something terrible
                         to my ship?

               Ultrawoman, Capeman, Cosmic Weasel, and Colossal Chunk enter.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         All right, who's ass am I kicking
                         today?

                                   HILLER
                             (grumbles)
                         Oh good, another one.

               Cordaine stands in front of Hiller defensively.  Hiller
               calmly taps him on the shoulder signalling him to stand down.

                                   ULTRAGIRL
                         Mom, I...

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         You and I will talk later, do you
                         hear me?

               Ultragirl nods and sits.

                                   HILLER
                         I am Ken Hiller.  Captain of this
                         ship.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         I'm Ultrawoman.  Now that's out of
                         the way, why don't you tell us
                         where you come from and who the
                         hell you are?

                                   HILLER
                         I can't.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         You can't or you won't?

                                   HILLER
                         Take your pick.

               Ultrawoman walks over to him.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Watch yourself, stranger.  You've
                         seen what we're capable of.

                                   HILLER
                             (eye twinkle)
                         I've seen what you're capable of,
                         all right.  You're capable of
                         saving millions of lives from a
                         crashing spaceship.  I don't think
                         you're the type to hurt weak
                         defenseless people such as myself
                         and Mr. Cordaine here.

                                   CORDAINE
                             (visibly frightened)
                         Especially Mr. Cordaine.

                                   HILLER
                             (smiles)
                         Sorry, lady.  Next time you try
                         threatening someone, make sure it's
                         going to work.

               Ultrawoman's bluff has been called.

                                   IVY
                             (angered)
                         They've taken Doug.

               Ultrawoman looks angrily at Hiller.  Cosmic Weasel puts his
               hand through Ivy's midsection.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         ...and turned Ivy into Al from
                         Quantum Leap.

                                   IVY
                             (To Cosmic Weasel)
                         STOP THAT!

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         What?  This?

               He continues to move his hand through Ivy.

                                   IVY
                         No, the Quantum Leap comparisons. 
                         It's dated.  You could have at
                         least gone with Annie from Being
                         Human.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         Uh... You mean Sally.

                                   IVY
                         Nooooo, I mean Annie from the first
                         and, might I add, best series.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         Best?  If it's so good, why did all
                         the actors leave?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         SHUT UP!  We're in the middle of
                         something here and it doesn't
                         matter even though the American
                         version of Being Human is far
                         superior.

                                   IVY
                         WHAT!?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                             (to Hiller)
                         What's wrong with her?

                                   HILLER
                         Where do I start?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Why is she a hologram!?

                                   HILLER
                             (Re: Ivy)
                         That's... actually, I have no idea
                         how the hell that happened.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Well, you'd better figure it out. 
                         I've got the greatest interrogator
                         on the planet at my disposal and,
                         trust me... you're going to sing.

                                   HILLER
                         ...and I told you, I can't do that.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Nightflyer!  You know what to do!

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                             (proudly)
                         I'm on it.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Tell Black Puma we'll teleport him
                         and compensate him for his time.

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         I... oh.
                             (he hangs his head)
                         Ok.

               Luna and Cosmic Weasel grabs Hiller and Cordaine, but Hiller
               shakes off his captor.

                                   HILLER
                         Wait just a damn minute!  What
                         about my crew?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Don't worry about your crew.  The
                         very last thing we want is for
                         someone with the kind of knowledge
                         you posses to end up in the wrong
                         hands.

                                                                CUT TO:

               -------




               INT. A HIGH TECH PRISON

               Individual crew members are being held in glass enclosed
               cells, each one about ten by ten.  The glass cells are
               stacked on top of each other with catwalks on each level. 
               The camera centers on VERA CRUZ who is busy trying to figure
               out a pass key on the wall of his cell.  Above him is TEMPUS
               in his own cell.

                                   TEMPUS
                         Forget it, it's impossible.

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         Says the guy who travels through
                         time and space like it's a video
                         game.  Nothing is impossible.

                                   TEMPUS
                         The keypads use a ten digit and
                         number sequence.  That's 34
                         characters in random sequences of
                         ten... That's roughly 36 million
                         possible combinations... If the
                         locks don't use symbols, that is.

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         At least I'm trying and not
                         pouting.

                                   TEMPUS
                         It's not pouting, Michael.  We're
                         stuck here.  Party's over.  The
                         unnamed tactical officer tried
                         controling their thoughts,
                         Ambassador Brin tried reason...
                         It's no use!  The timeline is going
                         to be such a rutting mess by the
                         time all this is over...

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         You know, if Miss Welles could see
                         you now...

                                   TEMPUS
                             (gets a little mad)
                         What?

                                   VERA CRUZ
                             (looks right at him)
                         She would ashamed of you.

               Tempus meets his gaze.

                                   TEMPUS
                         You don't know me.  Don't act like
                         you knew her.

               From above, another clear glass cell is lowered into the
               block.  Inside is BRANSON. 
               Tempus and Vera Cruz watch it come down and park a level away
               from them near BRIN and UNNAMED.

                                   UNNAMED
                         Commander Branson, are you
                         unharmed?

                                   BRANSON
                         I think so.  They just asked me a
                         bunch of questions.  Who we are and
                         where we come from...

                                   TEMPUS
                         You didn't tell them...?

                                   BRANSON
                         I'm not an idiot.  I played dumb... 
                         kind of like how Cole does... all
                         the time.

                                   BRIN
                         I'm sure you did fine, Alina.  What
                         could you tell about the people who
                         brought us here?

                                   BRANSON
                         That's the weirdest part...

               A giant door opens on the other side of the room.  ROBO
               BRITNEY enters with a cadre of other BRITNEYS flanking her on
               each side.  One of the Britneys is throwing rose petals while
               another one plays a trumpet fanfare.

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         She must be in charge.

                                   BRIN
                         Ya' think!?

               The Robo-Britneys start to do a very impressive hardcore
               choreographed dance to "Womanizer."  The crew watches in
               confusion except for Unnamed who bobs his head silently to
               the music.

               ROBO BRITNEY stops in front of them as the song ends and
               fireworks and sparklers go off.  Unnamed claps in approval,
               but stops when everyone looks at him.

               Robo-Britney is handed a Gatorade and a taco which she eats
               like a wild animal.  She finishes and belches.  

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                             (sipping her Gatorade)
                         You have trespassed in the country
                         of Great Britnia and you shall pay
                         the consequences!

                                   UNNAMED
                         What kind of consequences?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         You must pay a fine... of ten
                         American dollars!

               Lightning crashes.

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         Uh... I have to admit, that doesn't
                         sound anywhere near as bad as I
                         thought it would be.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         ...and 58 consecutive life
                         sentences.

               Everyone gasps.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         EACH!

               More lightning.

                                   BRIN
                             (going into full diplomat
                              mode)
                         Whoa, whoa, whoa... Excuse me,
                         uh... ma'am.  We're accidental
                         trespassers.  We make no claims to
                         your land or properties, we only
                         seek help because we are lost and
                         obviously at your... 
                             (smiles)
                         ...lovely mercy.

               Robo-Britney blinks.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Lovely?

                                   BRIN
                         Oh yes.

               Robo-Britney tosses the Gatorade to the side where it
               explodes.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Tell The Britney more.

                                   BRIN
                         More?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         MORE!

                                   BRIN
                             (jumps)
                         GAH!
                             (regroups)
                         You are... the most absolute
                         beautiful--

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Not that!  The Britney hears hollow
                         praise from The Britney's army of
                         sex slaves five times every morning
                         when the colitis bell rings.

                                   BRANSON
                         Can I just say, "ew?"

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         You say you are lost.  Where do you
                         come from?

                                   BRIN
                         Oh, we're from a distant planet
                         called... uhm... Mars?

               Vera Cruz slaps his forehead.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Mars, eh?  Never heard of it.  The
                         Britney will forget about the
                         prison sentences...

                                   VERA CRUZ
                         ...and the ten dollars?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         NO!
                             (lightning)
                         The Britney will forget about the
                         prison sentences if and only if,
                         you provide The Britney with some
                         of your Martian technology.

                                   TEMPUS
                         No way.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Stay out of this, Tempus.

                                   TEMPUS
                         How do you know my...?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         SILENCE!
                             (to everyone)
                         Bring The Britney the--

               Lightning.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                             (Shouts to the ceiling)
                         A LITTLE LATE!
                             (Normal)
                         Bring The Britney chief engineer of
                         your ship.  He will remain while
                         the rest of you go free.  Do it
                         now, or suffer The Britney's wrath!

               Branson suddenly looks nervous.



               INT. SENESTRA MALEVOLOUS' THRONE ROOM - MALEVOLOSIA

               SENESTRA MALEVOLOUS is sitting in a chair offering tea and
               cookies to WARD.  Ward cautiously takes the cup and sips it.

                                   SENESTRA
                             (dark)
                         You now have five minutes to live. 
                         The poison can only be counteracted
                         by the antidote I have locked in
                         the safe.

               Ward's eyes go wide.  Senestra cackles with laughter.

                                   SENESTRA
                         You... haha... You should have seen
                         the look on your face!  Hahahaha! 
                         Poison in the tea!  Darling,
                         please, Senestra Malevolous doesn't
                         poison!  Not in her own throne
                         room... the vomit and blood stains
                         never come out of the carpeting.

                                   WARD
                             (incredulous)
                         You were joking?

                                   SENESTRA
                         Hahaha... Well, perhaps.  I think I
                         was, but we'll find out in five
                         minutes, won't we?

               Senestra takes a sip of the tea and laughs again.  It's as
               though she's sitting with one of her best friends.

                                   WARD
                         You said you needed us to help you
                         save the world.  What did you mean
                         by that?

                                   SENESTRA
                         Oh, I was being a bit dramatic, my
                         dear.  There's no imminent threat,
                         but one of the planet's most
                         indispensable assets is being
                         slowly depleted and I would like
                         you and your... crew to help me...
                         prime the pump, so to speak.

                                   WARD
                         What asset are we talking about?

                                   SENESTRA
                             (sits down cup, goes dark)
                         As much as I hate to admit it...
                         superheroes.

                                   WARD
                         Superheroes?

                                   SENESTRA
                         Those tight-wearing do-gooders. 
                         Normally, I hate them with a
                         burning passion, but there hasn't
                         been a metahuman birth or emergence
                         in almost five years.  Can you
                         believe that?

                                   WARD
                         Meta... human?

                                   SENESTRA
                             (understands)
                         I see the trend continues in the
                         future.  You don't have them where
                         you come from, do you?

                                   WARD
                             (Shakes her head)
                         We always thought they were the
                         stuff of comic books and movies. 
                         Looks like a lot of fiction is
                         becoming a lot more... "non."

                                   SENESTRA
                         They're dying out.

                                   WARD
                         Why?

                                   SENESTRA
                         I've found no concrete proof of any
                         one hypothesis, but I believe it
                         can be traced back to a crazy plan
                         we concocted a few years ago to rid
                         the world of a particularly bitchy
                         demigod named Chrissie who was
                         about to destroy the entire
                         universe.  We set off a gene bomb
                         that activated the latent metagene
                         in every human on Earth giving them
                         superpowers for a few hours to beat
                         her.  It was... incredible.
                             (she smiles, but goes back
                              to normal quickly)
                         When the genes went dormant in
                         normal humans again... they went
                         very dormant.  Now, there doesn't
                         seem to be a way to reactivate
                         them.  We've taken a quantum leap
                         backwards in evolution.  That is
                         simply unacceptable.

                                   WARD
                             (Amazed)
                         Metahumans?  Werewolves... it's
                         like we've wandered into a crazy
                         mythical madhouse.

                                   SENESTRA
                             (sighs)
                         Did you know that the gorilla was
                         thought to me a mythical creature
                         until the 19th century when they
                         brought one out of Africa for the
                         first time?

                                   WARD
                         Same with bigfoot.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Pardon?

                                   WARD
                         Nothing.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Whatever.  Just because you've
                         never seen a thing, doesn't mean it
                         doesn't exist.

                                   WARD
                         You and my mother would get along
                         just fine.

                                   SENESTRA
                         We would?  
                             (brightens)
                         Is she evil?

                                   WARD
                         Uh... n-no, but she would say the
                         same thing to me when it came to
                         religion.

                                   SENESTRA
                             (laughs)
                         Such an ugly habit. Never touched
                         the stuff myself.

                                   WARD
                         Then we do have something in
                         common.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Goodie! We're girlfriends now.  So,
                         my dear... will you help?

                                   WARD
                         I can't.  Mrs. Malevolous, you have
                         to understand that I cannot alter
                         the past.  Even without your
                         superheros, the future of Earth is
                         a good one and I won't risk it.  We
                         get there just fine without laser
                         vision or lightning out of our
                         asses.

                                   SENESTRA
                             (glowers)
                         Now we're going to hit a snag in
                         girl time, my lovely.  You see...
                         I promised my boy that he would
                         rule the world and, to do that, he
                         needs to be more super than the
                         greatest superman in the skies
                         today.  You will provide me with
                         what I need or your crew's stay
                         here will become most unpleasant.

                                   WARD
                         I'm sorry, but no.

                                   SENESTRA
                         I hoped to do this amicably, but if
                         I need to, I can torture or bribe
                         your doctor into doing anything I
                         want.  Perhaps you should take your
                         mother's advice and send up a
                         prayer to God because that's all
                         the chance you've--

                                   WARD
                         Allah.

                                   SENESTRA
                         What?

                                   WARD
                         My mom's a Muslim.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Muslim?

                                   WARD
                         Yeah, so?

                                   SENESTRA
                         Security!  Search this woman for
                         explosives!
                             (laughs)
                         Haha, I'm just kidding dear!  It's
                         all a joke!
                             (laughs, then shrieks)

               Starseeker is parked on the atoll off the coast.



               INT. JUSTICE SQUAD HQ

               Ultrawoman is pacing back and forth in the meeting room. 
               Luna is sitting at the table looking at pictures of
               Starseeker, Cordaine, and Hiller.  Capeman walks in followed
               by Blue Fairy.

                                   CAPEMAN
                         Look who I found.

                         Where the hell have you been, Jack?

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         Fine, thank you.  I was dead for a
                         little bit and then resurrected
                         myself to fight a terrorform from
                         the 19th realm of Jygunx.  The
                         realm was decimated, but I did
                         manage to save imagination and hope
                         from being eradicated by the
                         Nothing.
                             (to Capeman)
                         Yes, the Nothing from The
                         Neverending Story is real.  Kung Fu
                         Panda is too.  The shit I find out
                         in a week would blow your mind,
                         man.

                         You're late.

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         Um, Hi.... I just said I was dead!

                             (to Blue Fairy)
                         You're off the hook but only
                         because we can't find Bippo and
                         Wolfman.

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         Well, what's the emergency?  Does
                         is have something to do with the
                         spaceship parked out there on the
                         atoll?

                         They might or might not have
                         kidnapped Doug.

                         Doug?  I saw him with Zy... uh...
                         somewhere... once.
                             (a beat)
                         What else do we know?

                                   CAPEMAN
                         Nothing.  Ivy's trapped in their
                         computer, but can't get to any of
                         their information.  We've got the
                         Captain of the ship and the pilot,
                         but they aren't telling us
                         anything.

                         Black Puma had to leave about two
                         hours ago, but Nightflyer's still
                         trying to make the pilot crack for
                         all the good that will do us.

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         What exactly are we trying to get
                         them to admit to?  Are we being
                         invaded by the future?

                                   LUNA
                         Again?

                         No.  They were trying not to crash
                         in a populated area.  Bad guys
                         wouldn't care.

               Nightflyer enters.

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         I agree.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         What did you find out from the
                         pilot?

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         I got his name: Hauvie Cordaine. 
                         His species: Catian, and
                         confirmation of their story. 
                         They've been on a hell of a trip
                         through time and space.  Here's a
                         detailed list of their activities
                         since they arrived in the 21st
                         century all those years ago.

                             (amazed)
                         Nightflyer... Black Puma wasn't
                         able to get all of that information
                         out of his subject.  Willard, I've
                         underestimated you and I am sorry. 
                         You did an amazing job.  How did
                         you do it?

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         I'm very persuasive when I want to
                         be.

                         I underestimated you.  You did a
                         wonderful job.

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         I hear that a lot.  Ready for round
                         five?

               Nightflyer gets on top of him.  Cordaine stops him.

                         supervise the peace accords between
                         the werewolves and vampires.

                                   WOLFMAN
                         We get Transylvania every Saturday,
                         Sunday, and the third week of every
                         month.
                             (looks at file on table)
                         Oh, look Bippo!  It's those guys!

                                   BIPPO THE CLOWN
                         Oh, I remember those guys!  Those
                         guys were fun!

               Ultrawoman stops them.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         You two have the e-band on your
                         communicators for a reason and you
                         shouldn't just ignore them if--
                             (a beat)
                         You... know these people?

                                   BIPPO THE CLOWN
                         Sure.  Ken Hiller of the
                         Starseeker.  We ran into them, what
                         was is, Thad...?

                                   WOLFMAN
                         Thirteen years ago.

                                   BIPPO THE CLOWN
                         Thirteen years ago?  Was it really
                         that long?

                                   WOLFMAN
                         God, I know... I feel old.

                                   BIPPO THE CLOWN
                         You are old.  You should be, like,
                         fifty now!

                                   WOLFMAN
                         I'm 42!

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         You're 42?  You look 20!

                                   WOLFMAN
                         I was de-aged once... 
                             (a beat)
                         ...also, I think I may be immortal
                         now.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         FOCUS!

                                   CAPEMAN
                         OH GOD, I REMEMBER!  THE AWFUL
                         WRITHING ON A PRISON COT!!!

               Everyone looks at Capeman.

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                         That was me again.  Sorry. 

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Wolfman... tell me everything you
                         know about these guys.

                                   BLUE FAIRY
                             (quickly)
                         NOT ON THE COT!



               INT. A PRISON CELL

               Hiller is sitting on his bed when the door clacks open.  The
               stands just in time to see CORDAINE enter.  Cordaine hold his
               finger to his mouth telling the captain to be quiet.  He
               motions for the captain to follow.



               INT. CELL CORIDOR

               Hiller and Cordaine run along looking for an escape.

                                   HILLER
                         How... how did you get out!?

                                   CORDAINE
                         I tricked my interrogator into
                         having sex with me and then stole
                         his key card.

               Cordaine holds it up.

                                   HILLER
                             (deadpan)
                         Why didn't I think of that?

                                   CORDAINE
                         You are too unattractive.

                                   HILLER
                         I was being sarcastic.

                                   CORDAINE
                         I know.

               They turn down another hallway.



               INT. A LARGE BAY

               The room is dark when the door opens.  Hiller and Cordaine
               can be seen in the light.  They sneak into the room.

                                   CORDAINE
                         We have to find a way off this
                         island.

                                   HILLER
                         If you have any suggestions,
                         Lieutenant, I'd love to hear them.

               The lights come on.  Hiller and Cordaine notice something
               unseen to the audience.  Cordaine smiles a big tooth smile.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Will that do?

                                   HILLER
                         That'll do.



               INT. JUSTICE SQUAD HQ

               ULTRAWOMAN, CAPEMAN, BLUE FAIRY, NIGHTFLYER, and LUNA are
               there.  WOLFMAN and BIPPO are across the table.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         What do you MEAN they're gone!?

                                   WOLFMAN
                         We went to go let them out like you
                         said, but the cells were empty when
                         we got there!  Why are you yelling
                         at me, for?  I just got here!

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         How could they have gotten out of
                         those cells!?  The only way they
                         could have escaped was by those
                         encrypted key cards we had made up!

               Nightflyer, in the background, is checking his pockets.  He
               realizes his is gone and quickly stops as Ultrawoman looks
               back at him.

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                         Obviously, they used some sort of
                         futuristic technology to control
                         someone's mind to get a key card. 
                         Whoever it was shouldn't be blamed.

                                   LUNA
                         They're on the island somewhere. 
                         There's no way they could get off!

                                   CAPEMAN
                         Unless they commandeered a
                         teleporter.

                                   NIGHTFLYER
                             (Waves him off)
                         The only people who can operate
                         them are Justice Squad personnel...
                         They'd never figure it out before
                         we found them.



               INT. THE TELEPORTER BAY

               Cordaine and Hiller are standing next to the tubes.

                                   HILLER
                         These are OUR systems!

                                   CORDAINE
                         They must have salvaged it off the
                         moon when we were hit with the
                         Nuperi missile a few weeks back.

               Cordaine works on it.

                                   HILLER
                         They've had this thing for thirteen
                         years!?  I've got to hand it to
                         them, they are pragmatic.  Find a
                         teleporter on the moon... never
                         question where it came from, just
                         use the damn thing.  It's a wonder
                         it didn't jumble their DNA or turn
                         themselves inside out.

               Cordaine enters coordinates.

                                   CORDAINE
                         I think I have it working.

                                   HILLER
                         You think?

                                   CORDAINE
                         It's hard to tell... the system has
                         been altered and repaired with
                         native technology.

                                   HILLER
                         Is it safe?

                                   CORDAINE
                         Safer than staying here.

                                   HILLER
                         Point taken.  We need to get some
                         major help.  If my history's right,
                         the most powerful nation in the
                         world is America.  Lock us on to
                         Washington D.C.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Is that wise?

                                   HILLER
                         Probably not, but I don't have time
                         for a better plan.

               Hiller and Cordaine get into the tubes as Cordaine activates
               the system.

                                   CORDAINE
                         I've rigged the system to self
                         destruct after we teleport away. 
                         They won't be following us. 
                         Problem is, we won't be able to get
                         back to Starseeker either.

                                   HILLER
                             (sighs)
                         One crisis at a time, please.

               Hiller and Cordaine disappear into a teleporter effect. 
               After they are gone, the tubes and console erupt in fire and
               sparks.  Nightflyer, Ultrawoman, and Capeman run into the
               room just in time to witness the destruction of the
               teleporter.  Ultrawoman sighs and rubs her nose.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                             (groans)
                         Oh God, today sucks.

                                   CAPEMAN
                         We'll make it right, Mona.  Trust
                         me... it's not like much more can
                         go wrong, right?

               The emergency sprinklers come on dousing them all with water.



               INT. A DUNGEON

               Valentine comes out of a curtained cell and walks by Cole who
               is brooding against the wall.  Kerin is sitting down and
               trying to give DOUG a candy bar.

                                   KERIN
                         Come on, you have to be hungry,
                         right?  It's good... it's a
                         Lightspeed Bar.  Chocolate from
                         Earth and nuts from Xrax Prime.

               Doug looks up at him.

                                   KERIN
                         Ah, that got your attention, huh?

                                   DOUG
                         My dad was Xrax.

                                   KERIN
                         I figured.  The blue skin was kind
                         of a givaway.
                             (offers candy)
                         Go ahead.  Take it.

               Doug takes the bad.

                                   KERIN
                         Where did you come from?

                                   DOUG
                         I wasn't supposed to be there.  I
                         snuck over with Zy.

                                   KERIN
                         Who's Zy?

                                   DOUG
                         A friend.

               Kerin leans in a little closer.

                                   KERIN
                         You're with them, right?  The
                         people who attacked the ship?

               Doug doesn't say anything.

                                   KERIN
                         It's all right, kid.  I doubt you
                         had anything to do with it.
                             (winks)
                         It'll be our secret.

                                   DOUG
                         Okay...

               WARD is put back in her cell.  VALENTINE, COLE, and KERIN
               rush to her.  Doug hides.  She puts her hand up telling them
               that she's all right.

                                   WARD
                         Cole, can we talk freely?

                                   COLE
                         I found seventeen bugs hidden in
                         the cells.  All have been
                         destroyed.  If there's more, I
                         couldn't find them.

                                   WARD
                         I trust your thoroughness. 
                         Valentine... for the remainder of
                         our time here, your profession must
                         remain secret.

                                   VALENTINE
                         Any particular reason?

                                   WARD
                         The leader of this country wants a
                         doctor to do genetic manipulation.

                                   VALENTINE
                         Can't believe the Earth was ever in
                         this kind of state.  First, there
                         were empires run by emperors then
                         kingdoms ruled by kings... now
                         there's countries run by...

                                   WARD
                         Doctor...

                                   VALENTINE
                         I can't jolly well stop being a
                         doctor, Ward!  There are people
                         here who are hurt and need
                         attention!  I can't ignore them the
                         way Mr. Cole ignores hygiene!

                                   COLE
                         Thank you.

                                   KERIN
                         Doctor, there's bigger issues at
                         stake.

                                   VALENTINE
                         Says the glorified bartender.  Let
                         me ask you something, movie star,
                         could you have ignored that boy you
                         found on the ship?  Could you have
                         just walked by like he didn't
                         exist?

                                   KERIN
                         Of course not...

                                   VALENTINE
                         Then don't tell me to do the same
                         damn thing.  I'll deal with
                         whatever this Malevolous person
                         throws at me.

               Ward knows the conversation is over.

                                   WARD
                         How are the wounded?

                                   VALENTINE
                         Nothing life-threatening.  The
                         worst off was Lieutenant Ris, but
                         she's finally awake. She was asking
                         for you earlier.

                                   WARD
                             (nods)
                         I'll go see how she's doing.
                             (a beat)
                         Doctor... I respect you.  I think
                         you're being exceedingly stupid,
                         but I still respect you.

               She claps her hand on Valentine's shoulder and goes to the
               back though a makeshift curtain.

                                   VALENTINE
                         The saddest thing is that's the
                         nicest thing she's ever said to me.



               INT. THE BACK ROOM

               RIS is on a cot as Ward enters.

                                   WARD
                         Ris?

                                   RIS
                         Commander?

                                   WARD
                             (whispers)
                         It's all right, we're alone.

               Ris gets up out of bed and she and Ward embrace.  Ward kisses
               her and holds her tighter.

                                   RIS
                         I was worried about you.

                                   WARD
                         I was worried about you.

               Ward brushes a strand of hair off her her face.

                                   RIS
                         Is it true that Starseeker is gone?

                                   WARD
                         Gone... but that just means we
                         don't know where she is right now.

                                   RIS
                         So, anywhere between a crater and
                         safe?

                                   WARD
                         Pretty much.

                                   RIS
                         We're going to die here.

                                   WARD
                         We're going to be laughing about
                         this in a few weeks.

                                   RIS
                         Right before we nervously change
                         the subject, no doubt.

               There is a scuffle and shouting outside.  

                                   WARD
                         What in the...
                             (to Ris)
                         Stay here.

               Ward gets up and runs to the opening.



               INT. A DUNGEON

               Two troops have some and are escorting Valentine out.  Ward
               goes to stop them.

                                   VALENTINE
                             (quickly)
                         Commander, stop.  I know what I'm
                         doing...

               The guards shut the door and march away with the doctor.

                                   WARD
                         What...?

                                   COLE
                         She surrendered herself.

                                   WARD
                         She did what!?

                                   COLE
                         Told the guards that she was a
                         doctor and everything.  Hell, she
                         offered to help them!  Crazy bitch
                         is going to give them what they
                         want!



               EXT. JUSTICE SQUAD ISLAND

               Starseeker remains on the atoll, the waves crashing against
               her landing struts.



               INT. THE COMMAND DECK

               ULTRAWOMAN is studying the controls for the Command Deck
               teleporter as Luna and Cosmic Weasel enter.  Luna is holding
               the red sword taken from the Intruder in "It Has Already
               Begun."

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                             (not looking up)
                         What did you two find out?

                                   LUNA
                         Cos searched the entire ship from
                         stem to stern.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         Eleven seconds.

                                   LUNA
                         Twelve.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         No...

                                   LUNA
                         It was twelve.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                             (annoyed)
                         No one left on board.  I counted
                         ten thousand fifty three firearms
                         and forty seven bladed instruments.

                                   LUNA
                         The firearms have non-lethal
                         settings and seem to be
                         bolometrically coded to only fire
                         when in the right pre-determined
                         hands.

               Ultrawoman eyes the sword.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         Souvenir?

               Luna looks at the sword.

                                   LUNA
                         Something like that.

               IVY appears as a hologram.

                                   IVY
                             (to Ultrawoman)
                         No luck.  We're locked out of every
                         system on this ship.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                             (back to business)
                         No luck here, either.  Looks a lot
                         like our teleporter system, but
                         it's got some biometric locks on it
                         -- probably like the weapons on
                         board.

                                   COSMIC WEASEL
                         So what do we do?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         We find Hiller.

                                   IVY
                         How do we do that?  They've gone to
                         ground... probably laying low and
                         being inconspicuous.



               EXT. THE WHITE HOUSE

               HILLER and CORDAINE are standing on Pennsylvania Avenue
               looking at the famous structure with their backs to the
               camera.  They turn and look at the camera and we see that
               they are both wearing civilian attire that it appropriate for
               the era.  Hiller is in a pair of shorts, sunglasses, and a T
               Shirt that says "TEAM JACOB" and Cordaine is wearing an awful
               looking Hawaiian shirt, torn jeans, and a knit cap for hiding
               his ears.

                                   CORDAINE
                         We look good.

                                   HILLER
                         Yes... Yes we do.

                                   CORDAINE
                             (thumbs to White House)
                         So that's where the emperor of
                         Earth lives?

                                   HILLER
                         Not an emperor, a president and not
                         Earth, just a small section of it
                         that we used to call The United
                         States -- part of the North
                         American continent.

               They start to walk.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Ah... So, your planet was
                         fragmented into smaller nation
                         states?

                                   HILLER
                         And this one was the biggest and
                         the most powerful of the time.
                             (a beat)
                         This is where we're going to get
                         help.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Are you sure going to a native 21st
                         century government is wise?

                                   HILLER
                         Not in the least bit, but if you
                         have a better suggestion, I'd love
                         to hear it.

               They walk along, past a group of protesters with signs that
               say the famous Westborough drivel of "GOD HATES AMERICA" and
               "MUSLIMS WILL BURN."  Both of the men regard the signs with
               appropriate disgust, but Cordaine seems most affected as they
               leave the small group of protestors behind.

                                   CORDAINE
                         This appears to be a turbulent time
                         period.

                                   HILLER
                         Believe it or not, it's actually
                         kind of quiet right now.  I guess
                         we're just a turbulent species.

                                   CORDAINE
                         That I understand only too well.

                                   HILLER
                         The question is, how are we going
                         to get in there?  It's one of the
                         most secure locations in the world. 
                         I doubt they're going to just hand
                         out tickets...

               Cordaine hands him a ticket.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Here.

                                   HILLER
                         What's this?

                                   CORDAINE
                         A ticket.  We're on the tour.

                                   HILLER
                         Tour? They're giving out tours of
                         this place?

                                   CORDAINE
                         I was rather surprised myself.

                                   HILLER
                             (looks at ticket)
                         Should I even ask where you got the
                         money for this stuff?

                                   CORDAINE
                         The same way I got the key to your
                         cell.

                                   HILLER
                         Wow... this is going to look
                         outstanding on my report.

               They get in line.



               INT. A SURVELIANCE ROOM

               On a black and white monitor, Cordaine and Hiller are seen
               standing in line and speaking.  There is no sound.  The
               picture is zoomed in on Hiller.



               INT. THE WHITE HOUSE

               Hiller and Cordaine are in a large tour group walking through
               the halls.  The TOUR GUIDE, a perpetually smiling young
               woman, is showing them the sights.

                                   TOUR GUIDE
                         ...and here we have the main
                         gallery home to paintings of all of
                         America's greatest presidents and
                         George W. Bush.  Here we have John
                         F. Kennedy as depicted during the
                         time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. 
                         Note how his head is bowed and
                         rested on his chin, the crisis
                         weighing heavily on him and the
                         future of the entire world. 
                         President Clinton is depicted in
                         this painting much the same way as
                         he quietly wonders if he removed
                         the hardcore pornography from his
                         VCR before his wife accidentally
                         discovered it.  This gallery was
                         originally to contain portraits of
                         all the presidents, but the
                         Republicans insisted on only
                         including 30 paintings.  President
                         Obama agreed to meet them halfway
                         and so the gallery contains 30
                         paintings.

               Cordaine raises his hand.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Excuse me?

                                   TOUR GUIDE
                         Yes, you have a question?

                                   CORDAINE
                         When do we actually get to meet the
                         president?

               Everyone laughs.

                                   TOUR GUIDE
                         My goodness, what a stupid
                         question.  The president doesn't
                         just see anyone...

               A secret service agent leans over and whispers something into
               her ear. Her frown vanishes.

                                   TOUR GUIDE
                             (to Cordaine and Hiller)
                         Apparently... the president will
                         see you now.

                                   HILLER
                             (to Cordaine)
                         All right, you win.  I'm going to
                         start sleeping with people to get
                         what I want too.



               INT. SENESTRA MALEVOLOUS' THRONE ROOM

               Senestra sits in her throne as three ROBO-BRITNEYs approach.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Oh, what do you want?  If this is
                         about another Injustice Squad, you
                         can just jump out of that window
                         there.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         You are holding prisoners.

                                   SENESTRA
                         I hold lots of prisoners.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         These are prisoners from the
                         future.

                                   SENESTRA
                         I hold lots of prisoners from the
                         future.

               A beat.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Shut up.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         By The Britney's estimation, you
                         hold 43 percent of the crew of the
                         starship Starseeker.  The Britney
                         demands you turn them over.

               Senestra laughs.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Oh really?  What if I turn over
                         complete control of my nuclear
                         arsenal while I'm at it?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Those terms are acceptable as well.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Britney, I know this is difficult
                         for you to accept or understand or
                         even comprehend, but I am using my
                         prisoners for something called "a
                         greater good."

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         The Britney knows you are
                         attempting to restart metagene
                         births.  This is something The
                         Britney will not allow.  With meta
                         humans going extinct, it will only
                         be a matter of time before The
                         Britney rules all.

                                   SENESTRA
                         I'm sure that you have no intention
                         of using the crew of the future
                         ship to perfect weapons?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         No, The Britney will do that as
                         well.

                                   SENESTRA
                         And your first target will be
                         Malevolosia?

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Of course.  It will be a peaceful
                         transition... after the carpet
                         bombing and genocide, that is.

               Senestra stands.

                                   SENESTRA
                         Of course you know, this means war.

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Then war it shall be!

                                   SENESTRA
                         Q'plah!

                                   ROBO-BRITNEY
                         Q'plah!



               INT. THE WHITE HOUSE

               Cordaine and Hiller are being ushered down the hall by Secret
               Service.

                                   CORDAINE
                         What are we going to tell him?

                                   HILLER
                         The truth.

                                   CORDAINE
                         All of it?

                                   HILLER
                         All of it.  We need to come
                         completely clean because if the
                         President of the United States
                         can't help us, we're completely
                         fooped.

               They reach the door.



               INT. THE OVAL OFFICE

               Cordaine and Hiller enter.

                                   SECRET SERVICE GUY
                         Mr. Cordaine.  Mr. Hiller.  May I
                         present the President of the United
                         States.

                                   HILLER
                         Mr. President, thank you for seeing
                         us.  I know this is going to sound
                         strange, but...

               The president is sitting at his desk, his chair is facing
               away from the camera.

                                   PRESIDENT
                         ...you're from the future.  You
                         first arrived here thirteen years
                         ago.

                                   HILLER
                         You... know?

                                   PRESIDENT
                         Of course I know...

               The chair spins around and we see that it's....

                                   DONNER
                         YOU'RE THE ASSHOLES WHO STOLE MY
                         CAR!

                                   HILLER
                         Oh scat, I thought he looked
                         familiar.

                                   DONNER
                         I've been waiting a long time to
                         get even with you ass-stockings.

                                   SECRET SERVICE GUY
                         Mr. President, do you need
                         assistance?

                                   DONNER
                         No, you leave them to me.  I will
                         deal with them myself.

               The secret service leaves.

                                   DONNER
                             (stands)
                         This is going to be epic.  FINALLY
                         you're going to get what's coming
                         to you!

                                   HILLER
                         Well, what are you going to do?

                                   DONNER
                         I...
                             (a beat)
                         ...haven't really thought about it.
                             (a beat)
                         Honestly, I never thought I would
                         see you prick fritters again.  I
                         guess I should call the secret
                         service and have you shot.

                                   CORDAINE
                         But we need your help!

                                   DONNER
                         Aw... you should have thought about
                         that before you stole my car!

                                   HILLER
                             (to Cordaine)
                         Well, don't just stand there. 
                         Sleep with him!

                                   CORDAINE
                         I don't think that's going to work
                         this time.

                                   HILLER
                         So, you're not going to help us
                         because of a petty vendetta you've
                         been keeping for thirteen years?

                                   DONNER
                         Pretty much, yeah.

                                   HILLER
                         I hate this century.

               Hiller kicks Donner in the nuts and Donner falls down
               coughing.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Now what!?

               Hiller looks at the gigantic window.



               EXT. THE WHITE HOUSE

               Donner's chair is thrown through the window.  



               EXT. THE WHITE HOUSE

               Alarms are going off as Cordaine and Hiller run away from the
               building.

                                   HILLER
                             (huffing)
                         Hauvie, I don't mind telling you...
                         this has gone phenomenally bad.

                                   CORDAINE
                         You don't say.

               We hear a few gunshot.

                                   HILLER
                         Sweet JESUS!

                                   CORDAINE
                         You've really pissed them off,
                         captain!  Now what do we do?

               Just as they reach a street, a car screeches to a halt in
               front of them.  They almost run into it as the door opens...
               it's MARK STERLING, thirteen years older.

                                   MARK
                         GET IN!

               Cordaine and Hiller look at each other and then leap into the
               car.



               INT. THE CAR

               Hiller and Cordaine untangle themselves from each other. 
               Hiller sit up and looks at their rescuer.

                                   HILLER
                         Mark?  Is that you?

                                   MARK
                         The one and only.

                                   HILLER
                         How did you get here?

                                   STARSIE (O.C.)
                         That would be me.

                                   HILLER
                         Starsie?

               Mark holds up his smartphone and puts it in the mount on the
               dashboard.  Starsie's face is on it.

                                   STARSIE
                         Tsk, tsk, tsk... Captain, look
                         what's happened to you without me.

                                   HILLER
                         How did you...?  What the...?

                                   STARSIE
                         It's a long story, captain.

                                   MARK
                         Longer for most of us.

                                   STARSIE
                         I suggest that we elude all pursuit
                         before we catch up with one
                         another.  I have rerouted the
                         secret service and police to a
                         false location.
                             (a GPS Map pops up)
                         Follow this route and it will take
                         us out of the city.

                                   MARK
                         Got it.
                             (to Hiller)
                         Good to see you again, Captain. 
                         Been a long time.

                                   HILLER
                         Not as long for me, I guess.

                                                               FADE TO:



               EXT. A ROAD

               The car speeds by.



               INT. THE CAR

                                   MARK
                         ...I waited for weeks... months. 
                         When I realized you weren't coming
                         back for me, I tried to rebuild my
                         life.

                                   HILLER
                         Mark, I couldn't...

                                   MARK
                         I know.  I got a job, got an
                         apartment... my memories even came
                         back after a few months.  But... it
                         was fifteen years after I
                         disappeared.  My mom had died, all
                         of my friends moved on... it wasn't
                         my life anymore.
                             (a sad beat)
                         I wanted to be with you guys.  Up
                         there in space.  It was... hard to
                         go back to just being me again, you
                         know?
                             (a beat)
                         So, I set up a facebook group, a
                         website, and a twitter feed for
                         Starseeker personnel in case they
                         ever came back here.  Imagine my
                         suprise when Starsie instant
                         messaged me this morning.

                                   STARSIE
                         That crude English girl shoved me
                         out of the main database and, with
                         nowhere to go, I wifi'ed myself to
                         the internet.  That's where I found
                         Mark. 
                         I've been looking for signs of you
                         guys all day -- you too didn't show
                         up until you teleported yourself to
                         Washington.

                                   MARK
                         Fortunately, that's where I lived. 
                         I figured if any of you ever did
                         end up here again, this would be
                         the best bet to find you.

                                   HILLER
                         Good thinking.  What do we do now,
                         though.

                                   STARSIE
                         By hacking into US and UN
                         intelligence, I have ascertained
                         the location of every member of the
                         Starseeker crew.

                                   CORDAINE
                         Where?

                                   STARSIE
                         Malevolsia and Great Britnia. 
                         I'm... "borrowing" money from a
                         South American drug lord to secure
                         us travel to those areas.

                                   HILLER
                         Great news.  I feel like things are
                         finally looking up for us.

               Mark's eyes go wide and he slams on the brakes causing the
               car comes to a halt.  Hiller and Cordaine look.



               EXT. THE ROAD

               ULTRAWOMAN, CAPEMAN, LUNA, COSMIC WEASEL, BLUE WIZARD,
               WOLFMAN, BIPPO, ULTRAGIRL, COLOSSAL CHUNK, NIGHTFLYER, and
               DEVOUR stand in front of the car.

                                   HILLER
                             (facepalms)
                         Oh, goddamn...

               Ultrawoman walks over and opens the car door.  Hiller
               flinches, but then, when a beating is not delivered, looks
               up.  Ultrawoman has her hand out.

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         I think we got off on the wrong
                         foot.

               Hiller regards her suspiciously, but then takes her hand and
               exits the car.  Hauvie and Mark follow.

               Wolfman reverts to THAD COFFEY.  Bippo steps forward and
               waves.

                                   HILLER
                         Thad?  Bippo?

               Thad shakes Hiller, Cordaine, and Mark's hands.

                                   THAD
                         Good to see you again, Captain. 
                         All of you.

                                   CAPEMAN
                         Thad and Bippo vouched for you.  We
                         were actually coming to let you out
                         when... 

                                   HILLER
                         Of course you were.
                             (a beat)
                         Question is, what now?

                                   ULTRAWOMAN
                         What else?  We're going to work
                         together, get your crew, and get
                         you home.

               Hiller shakes her hand.

                                   HILLER
                         Lady, that's the first sensible
                         thing you people have said.

               They shake on it.

                                                          CUT TO BLACK:
               TO BE CONCLUDED...
