Working on getting this whole thing done. Wish me luck! I had a fun time doing the voice acting for this. Finally, I get to do all the characters together! Also, I got to insert a "We Come in Peace" reprise because it totally fits. I hope somebody's picking up on some of the themes in this musical. I've given it a lot of thought.
P.S. Any Mr. Pickles fans out there? That's the name I picked out for my future kitten.
And the story continues......
At the end of"Fallen Angel", we see that the U.S.S. Fabulous landed at the Red Tribe village. Everyone was surprised to see Eona exit the ship. This is a continuation of that scene, but beginning with the perspective of Captain Torpsulai and First Officer Cruz, who are still inside the ship. They are waiting for Eona to dispense the Lingoshot, which is what was first given to her by Captain Torpsulai in "We Come in Peace". It is a shot that acts as a universal translator so that everyone can understand each other...well, understand each other's words, at least. Intentions are entirely something else.
TORPSULAI: Okay, Cruz. It's been a few minutes. I'm getting bored. Can we leave the ship now?
CRUZ: No, sir. Not until we get the OK. If we leave the ship before Eona gives them the Lingoshot, then there's no telling what will happen.
(knocking on the ship)
EONA: Okay, you're all clear. You can come out now.
TORPSULAI: Aww, yeah! Mr. Pickles, keep an eye on the crew for me.
MR. PICKLES: Meow!
CRUZ: You don't think we'll need backup, sir?
TORPSULAI: It's totally cool! I've got these two killbots hooked up to this biomonitor on my arm. I only need to press this button right here. They're on standby, in case things get...messy. It's okay. I programmed them to NOT hurt us.
MAYJISS: Greetings, friends! I am Elder Mayjiss from the Red Tribe.
ARNISS: And I am Elder Arniss from the Blue Tribe.
SHANDO: I am General Shando of the Red Tribe. I'm the leader of the Warriors.
TORPSULAI: Hello, friends! My name is Captain Torpsulai and this is First Officer Cruz.
CRUZ: Hello! We're glad to be here!
We come in peace
Yeah, we know we look strange
But we don't want to scare you
We come from so far away
But we swear we just wanted to know who you are
We just wanted to know who you are
EONA: These are my friends
And they've shown me a kind of truth
We may not need to give a sacrifice
To grow the food we eat
It's just a chemical reaction
To the blood within us
There might be no Red God
But we can still survive without
ARNISS: Interesting. I would like to know more. The Blue Tribe is keen to leave the old ways behind. You should understand that better than anyone, Elder Mayjiss.
MAYJISS: I do. Still, I am unsure about all of this.
SHANDO: Blasphemy! Is this what you want, Red Tribe? Do you want these heathens and their lies? Where is your faith? Are you so ready to turn your back on He who has given us all?
EONA: It's not like that!
SHANDO: And this, coming from a traitor who should have died!
MAYJISS: General Shando, please! I must admit these aliens have a point.
SHANDO: Mayjiss, you ridiculous insect! I'll show you a point!
(Shando drives his sword through Mayjiss, dealing a fatal blow.)
SHANDO: God does not need heathens like you, either, Elder Arniss!
(Shando drives his sword in Arniss, killing her instantly.)
SHANDO: There is only room for one tribe on this planet!
CRUZ: Oh my god, oh my god....Captain?!!
TORPSULAI: Yeah, uh, I'm getting a little nervous....
MAYJISS: Eona, I am so sorry for everything. What an amazing woman you have become.....(he lets out his last breath)
(Eona weeps over his dead body.)
