Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

[Scene:&#160 aboard the bridge of Pegasus.&#160 The turbolift doors open.

Two people emerge – Captain Korrioth and an unidentified figure wearing a hooded cloak.&#160 The hood conceals enough of the face so that we cannot readily identify the indivdual – but the person’s eyes are glowing.

In purple.

Korrioth opens his mouth to issue the command to open a communications channel.&#160 He is abruptly cut off by the cloaked individual, speaking in a startlingly strong baritone voice.]

HOODED FIGURE:&#160 Communications, open a channel to the hostile vessel.

[Communications officer Ensign T-Bone McManx jumps at the voice, but is quick to recover and toggle the requisite switches on his console.]

T-BONE MCMANX:&#160 Uh…channel open, sir.

HOODED FIGURE:&#160 Shelliak vessel.&#160 Your obstinance has caused you to forfeit the opportunity to profit from our building needs.&#160 You will, therefore, surrender and escort us to your base of operations, where we will take possession of the materials and supplies we require to build our battleship.

[Pegasus’&#160 speakers boom with what can only be interpreted as Shelliak laughter.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 You frighten us not, Lord Spatula.&#160 You are nothing but a puny human leading more puny humans and two scrawny Klingons who could break all your necks with one finger.

[Korrioth and tactical officer Lieutenant K’hadibak’h growl, very loudly.&#160 The hooded figure silences them both with a minimal gesture.]

HOODED FIGURE:&#160 You will surrender or I will destroy your vessel and proceed to your home planet with your wreckage in tow.

[More laughter from the Shelliak.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 We have scanned your vessel.&#160 Your weaponry is no match for our defensive systems.&#160 Do not deign to threaten us, puny human.&#160 The Shelliak will—

[The hooded figure raises his arms and stretches out his hands as if reaching for the Shelliak vessel.&#160 The Shelliak sneers at the individual.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 And what do you hope to accomplish with this futile gesture, puny…

[The Shelliak trails off as he begins to notice various indicators in front of him giving off most strange readings.&#160 His bridge crew has also noticed this phenomonon, and are beginning to look amongst themselves in extreme concern.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 …what?&#160 What is this?&#160 Overload?&#160 Where??!?! Shut it down, now!!!&#160 WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU CAN’T?!?!?!&#160 (to the hooded figure)&#160 HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS, HUMAN?!?!?!

[The mysterious figure says nothing, but keeps his arms & hands outstretched.&#160 Consoles on the Shelliak vessel are visibly beginning to show signs of severe stress; some are even shorting out, causing massive sparking.&#160 As the figure’s arms begin to quiver uncontrollably, we begin to see explosions on the Shelliak vessel.&#160 The Shelliak commander is now extremely angry.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 Open fire on the enemy vessel!!!

OFFSCREEN VOICE:&#160 We cannot, Captain!&#160 Weapons controls are fused!!!

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 Intensify the forwards sheilds!!!

OFFSCREEN VOICE:&#160 Sheilds are down, sir!&#160 We can’t reestablish!!!&#160 We are defenseless!

[The Shelliak bridge is on fire now as more explosions rock the ship.&#160 The still-unknown figure is nearing a full-body seizure, but his hands remained outstretched towards the Shelliak vessel.&#160 The Shelliak commander is now in full-bore panic mode.]

SHELLIAK CMDR:&#160 WE SURRENDER!!!!&#160 We will give you anything you want, just spare our ship!!!!&#160 Plea—

[The explosions aboard the Shelliak vessel have become massive, and drown out the Shelliak’s remaining pleas.&#160 The figure’s arms shake wildly now, his eyes squeezed shut and his teeth grinding on themselves in a fierce grimace.&#160 Pegasus&#160 loses the picture of the Shelliak bridge—]

KORRIOTH:&#160 Shields, NOW!!!!!

[Korrioth is just in time.&#160 An instant later, the Shelliak vessel explodes in a massive fireball, having lost its antimatter containment.

The hooded mystery man collapses to the floor.&#160 Korrioth rushes to his side.]

KORRIOTH:&#160 My lord!&#160 K’hadibak’h, assist!!!

[The two Klingons lift he who has single-handedly destroyed an entire Shelliak vessel simply by raising his arms, and ease him into the command chair.]

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 My lord, are you alright?!

HOODED FIGURE (weaker than before, but still extremely forceful):&#160 I…will recover.&#160 You may return to your duties, Tactical.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Was it absolutely necessary to destroy the Shelliak, m’lord?

HOODED FIGURE (still speaking from under the hood):&#160 They defied us.&#160 They must learn that there is a price to be paid for defiance.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Still…

HOODED FIGURE:&#160 The galaxy must learn, my friend.&#160 It is one thing to decline business with us.&#160 But it is quite another to show disrespect to us.&#160 To me.

KORRIOTH:&#160 But—

HOODED FIGURE:&#160 No “buts”.&#160 We are through playing Mr. Nice Guys of the Galaxy.

[The figure lifts the hood from his head, and is revealed to be Lord Spatula I, King & Tyrant.

Or is it?

Certainly it is the face of His Rudeness&#153.&#160 But this is a different Spatuls – the cordial, even jovial countenance of the admiral of the Realm&#153 fleet has been replaced with a grim, determined, dark – even angry – sneer.&#160 A visage with eyes that exude a violent purple glow – as if Our Hero&#153 had succumbed and surrendered his very soul to some sort of eeevil&#160 inner darkness…]

Spats, Korrioth & K’hadibak’h all turn to glare into the camera.]

LSIK&T:&#160 Would you please&#160 can the melodrama and just tell the damned story???


LSIK&T:&#160 Damn, give you a few lines and you wanna take over the whole effin’ script.&#160 Geeze!

[Okay, okay.&#160 I’ll tone it down a little.]

LSIK&T:&#160 Thank you, sir.&#160 Korrioth, set course for the Shelliak homeworld, warp 8.&#160 Make sure you transmit footage of that last sequence to them and advise them that I’m not in a very good mood, mkay?

KORRIOTH:&#160 Right away, sir.

LSIK&T (rising):&#160 Now, I’ll be in my quarters.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Sir…?

LSIK&T:&#160 To down a keg of that peach tea Theragen derivative of yours.&#160 I told&#160 you these powers give me a huge honkin’ headache!

Denizens, we’re one step closer to completion of the IV project.&#160 Won’t be long now.&#160 Hang tight.

    purple glow


    And you say I live on the “Outer Rim”…..

    If you’d like I can introduce you to my friends the Ori and the Replicators. Or hey, there’s my long lost buds……Species 579.

    Yes, that’s my subtle way of saying the battlecruiser is needing a retrofit. Soon.

  2. david Hartung says:

    Lay off the Romulan Ale and your eyes won’t glow! 😉

  3. Ah, but they would, my friend.

    We’re only a few short weeks away from launching another season of Perfect Football Weekends&#153, after all. Rah Rah, TCU!!! 🙂

  4. David Hartung says:

    Perfect Football Weekends?

    Spats, hasn’t anyone ever told you that Football rots the brain?

    Besides, I know the truth! The only reason you watch football is for the cheerleaders! 🙂

  5. Supreme General Rayegun says:

    Hey David, you think Spats has the “NFL Channel” to watch replays of the games?? Heck no, he’s DVR-ing all of the pro football cheerleader reality shows!!!!

    Speaking of which…. I think there’s one on tonight after I get done watching “Batman Tech” on the History Channel.

    Cheerleaders…..if only.

  6. David Hartung says:

    Spats, I have a question. What takes priority, Football game, cheerleader reality show, or Batman Tech?

  7. Depends.&#160 Is it Adam West as Batman?

    And if so, is there an appearance by Julie Newmar as Catwoman? (grin)

  8. David Hartung says:

    You are too young to remember Adam West as Batman.

    I was speaking of the History channel show about the latest Batman movie.

    The new Batmobile is awesome.

  9. I appreciate the compliment – damn, do I ever appreciate it (grin) – but no, I’m not that young anymore. 🙂

    I imagine the new one is pretty special.&#160 I just wouldn’t know – I’ve never even seen one of any of the movies all the way through.

    Can you imagine the preacher showing up at the church in this?
