Krulos is mortally wounded and his trusted generals immediatly start fighting over the leadership of the Rulons, not even considering granting their leader medical help. Antor manages to capture Serena hoping it will give him the upper hand.
Jungle. A group of one triceratops, one placera and 2 monocloni are running for the next waterhole. Their faces are partially covered by pieces of Rulon brainboxes. A group of Dino-Riders (Questar on a deinonychus, Serena on a deinonychus, Yungstur on a deinonychus, Llahd on a pachycephalosaurus) apot them.
Questar
Yes just as I thought. Those are the lucky dinosaurs, who escaped Krulos after our last battle.
Yungstur
Alright! So let's round them up and ride them home.
Yungstur dashes ahead. Questar touches his AMP.
Questar
AMP glows. Talks telepathically., spoken Not so fast Yungstur.
Yungstur slows down and keeps to Questars side.
Yungstur
Ah, Questar don't be such a wet blanket.
00:53 A cliff, a water falls down it, forming a pool. The dinosaurs from before are drinking from the pool. They are alerted by the Dino-Riders approach. Questar is in the lead. His AMP glows. He touches it.
Questar
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Animal friends, we mean you no harm; We're here to help you.
Serena dismounts, and walks to one of the monocloni. It has a huge gash along his left cheek.
Serena
That one's been injured. You poor thing. You're lucky to be alive. Let me help you.
Serena touches her AMP. It glows. She let's go of her AMP and touches the Monocloius's head. Her AMP still glows.
Serena
This won't take to long.
Questar
Yungstur! You and Turret remove thos broken brainboxes.
Llahd
Boy! That Triceratops is a beauty.
Questar
They're all beauties, Llahd. We must never forget that.
Yungstur and Turret remove the brainbox from the placeras.
Yungstur
upset There! Enough with this Rulon junk.
Turret
Ah. Questar, Maybe we should hurry this along, and get the dinosaurs back to camp.
Questar
Sorry. Winning their trust takes time, Turret. We can't rush that.
Turret
I just hate to tangle with Krulos, when we're not prepared.
01:47 Serena is still treating the monoclonius, using her powers. The gash on his cheek has almost closed.
Serena
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. It won't be long fellow.
Krulos is standing on top of the cliff. He is not spotted by the Dino-Riders, nor is he heard.
Krulos
How right you are Serena. It won't be long, before I've destroyed you.
He turns to face Antor, Rasp and Hammerhead.
Krulos
Mount up! It's a perfect day for an ambush.
Rasp turns to Hammerhead.
Rasp
whispers Krulos is a fool!
Hammerhead
Yes. We should be raiding their camp. Not wasting time ambushing a small search party.
Krulos
What are you two waiting for?!
Rasp
intimidated Nuh ... Nothing, lord Krulos.
Rasp mounts his triceratops.
Rasp
Death to all Dino-Riders!
Krulos turns to Antor and Hammerhead.
Krulos
You two get moving.
Antor salutes and mount his Deinonychus.
Hammerhead
Krulos, this ambush is a waste of time. We should be stealing the S.T.E.P. crystal so we can return home.
Krulos
Hammerhead, never question my orders. Or I will screams destroy you!
Hammerhead
As you wish, lord Krulos.
Hammerhead mounts his Monoclonius.
Krulos
Attack! And take no prisoners.
Krulos is lifted onto his tyrannosaur by its mechanical arms.
03:00 At the bottom of the cliff, Questar is riding one of the monocloni. The other Dino-Riders are busy cleaning the other dinosaurs. Questar dismounts.
Questar
Alright, we've done all we can here. It's time to head back to camp. Mount up.
Enemy fire hails down on them.
Questar
It's a Rulon attack! Take cover!
Turret and Yungstur manage to mount their Deinonychus.
Turret
I was afraid this would happen.
Turret and Yungstur return fire.
Yungstur
Afraid? Not me. I can't wait to get Krulos in my gunsight.
Llahd runs to his pachycephalosaurus, but trips. He's caught in the crossfire.
Krulos
Prepare for your end Dino-Riders.
Questar
Llahd!
Questar runs to Llahd, and picks him up.
Krulos
Hammerhead, Rasp rush them!
Questar runs towards the pachycephalosaurus and puts Llahd in its seat.
Questar
Get back to camp and send Gunnur. We're gonna need him
Questar's AMP suddenly glows. He stares at it.
Gunnur
telepathically, from off Got'cha covered, Questar. When you didn't return to camp, we started looking for ya.
Three fully equipped Torosaurus's arrive.
Gunnur
telepathically, from off Looks like my timing was right on target.
The Torosaurs return fire. Llahd rides his pachycephalosaurus behind them. Questar has meanwhile mounted his Deinonychus. Hammerhead's monoclonius gets damaged. The cannon fire hits the surrounding mountains and trigger an earthquake.
Krulos
What's that?
Questar grabs his AMP.
Questar
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Earthquake! Take cover!
The Dino-Riders flee. A chasm opens in front of Yungstur and Serena. Serena's deinonychus is scared. Serena touches her AMP.
Serena
AMP glows. Talks telepathically., spoken Easy boy!
Yungstur turns around and touches his AMP.
Yungstur
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Don't worry, Serena, your turbo assist will carry you over.
On the back of his saddle, rockets fire up. His hands are on the armrest of his saddle.
Yungstur
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Watch!
Yungstur's deinonychus jumps and crosses the chasm. Serena also crosses the chasm, using the turbo assist.
Serena
Thanks, Yungstur.
04:33 Krulos is still attacking.
Krulos
Questar, I'll see you destroyed for dragging me onto this dreadful planet. Destroyed!
His tyrannosaurus looses his balance and falls over.
Krulos
No! Noooo!
Krulos is flung against the mountainside. His helmet cracks open. He tries to stand, but is to weak to do so.
04:52 Questar and his original patrol fled from the earthquake into a cave. The cave is located behind the waterfall from before. The fate of Gunnur and the torosaurus's is unknown.
Questar
I think, the earthquake's over.
05:01 A miniature tyrannosaurus, wearing a copy of the large ones armor, approaches Krulos. Antor, Rasp and Hammerhead run up to him.
Rasp
Is he dead?
Hammerhead lightly kicks Krulos. Hammerhead beds down to hear Krulos ragged breathing. He straightens.
Hammerhead
No, not yet. Lets get him back to camp.
The three generals pick him up. Rasp seems to have trouble with the weight.
05:20 The waterfall from before. Questar exits from behind it, followed by his deinonychus and Gunnur. Questar sees the Rulon attackers leave. Rasp is commandeering the tyrannosaurus.
Questar
That's odd. I've never seen Rulons walk away from a fight before.
Gunnur
Maybe they know, when they had enough.
Another deinonychus arrives. Questar mounts one.
Questar
Maybe. Come on, back to camp.
Gunnur mounts the other deinonychus. Serena is standing before the waterfall touching her temples, staring intently. Llahd runs up behind her.
Serena
Questar, I sense someone or something has been hurt. It needs my help. I must stay and find it.
Llahd
Can, Can I stay with Serena? Please?
Questar
Okay, but keep your eyes open. The rest of you come with me.
05:54 The bridge of the Dreadnaught. Some of the stations are manned. Hammerhead, Antor and Rasp are standing around arguing.
Hammerhead
Oh, you morons have always followed Krulos, without question. Well now I am in charge.
Rasp
Don't make me laugh, Hammerhead. You know nothing of leadership. No, I will take over.
Antor
And without my troops the Rulons are nothing. you both will follow me.
The three generals start shoving each other.
Sharkman Medic
from off Quiet!
The generals stop and look at the medic. The medic is tending to Krulos.
Sharkman Medic
I can't concentrate.
Hammerhead
How is he doing, medic?
Sharkman Medic
Not good. Even if I had the tools to treat our lord, his exosuit is damaged. He's beginning to dry out.
Hammerhead
smiling Then the end could be soon?
Sharkman Medic
smiling Very soon.
The two sharkmen shake hands, seemingly congratulating each other.
06:50 At the Dino-Rider's base everyone is busy, repairing it. A quetzacoatl is seen bringing supplies, monocloni and Dino-Rider's alike are carting away the debris. Gunnur is standing on a brontosaurus fitted with a crane suit. He is commanding it.
Gunnur
That's the way. Just a little more.
Yungstur and Turret are carrying rocks to the piece of wall, the brontosaurus has just positioned.
Gunnur
Hurry up you guys! Wo, don't quit now boys. We still got the other side to do.
Turret keeps placing rocks underneath the wall segment. Yungstur stops.
Yungstur
whines Oh, I should be out flying with Serena and Llahd, not stuck here. How did they get all the luck anyway?
07:18 Serena is flying on a quetzacoatl. She is using her binoculars to search.
Serena
Destruction. It's terrible, and yet at the same time it's beautiful.
She touches her AMP.
Serena
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Llahd, have you found anything?
On the ground. Llahd is on a pachycephalosaurus. He too is using binoculars. He touches his AMP.
Llahd
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Nothing, Serena. All the dinosaurs in this area seem fine.
Serena
Something is hurt, I can feel it. Down quetz.
The quetzacoatl sinks. Serena can see a Rulon squad (3 Vipers on triceratops), that is about to make contact with Llahd.
Serena
Oh No.
Serena touches her AMP.
Serena
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Llahd quickly: Take cover!
Llahd's AMP is glowing he is not touching it.
Llahd
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. I didn't read ya, Serena.
Serena
telepathically Now Llahd! Do as I say!
Llahd urges his dinosaur to hurry. Serena dives and attacks the Rulons from the air.
Viper 1
A Dino-Rider! Shoot her down!
The Vipers return fire. Serena tries to flee. Llahd's dinosaur accidently brakes a branch. The noise catches the attention of a Viper.
Viper 2
What have we here?
Serena
distressed Llahd!
She tries to draw the attention of Viper 2. She flies too low. Her quetzacoatl is caught between some trees. Serena falls of. She lands on her behind, in front of a Viper.
Serena
This'll teach me to go flying, alone.
Viper 2
Yes. Rasp should reward me well, for capturing you. On your feet!
Llahd watches the scene.
08:25 Krulos's private chambers. Krulos lies in the bed. He seems very weak. Rasp is with him.
Krulos
I ... I'm still ... still in control.
Rasp
Of course, lord Krulos.
Krulos
It's time to strike the Dino-Riders.
Krulos drifts to unconsciousness.
Rasp
It's time I rule the Rulon army. As I should have from the beginning.
Viper 2 runs in.
Viper 2
Rasp! I ...
Rasp
Can't you see I'm busy? Get out of here!
Viper 2
But master Rasp...
Rasp strangles him.
Rasp
You defy me?
Viper 2
The Dino-Rider Serena. I have captured her.
Rasp
What?! Well why didn't you say so? laughs
Rasp turns to Krulos.
Rasp
With Serena under my control, your fate is sealed, oh great and glorious leader.
Rasp turns back to Viper 2.
Rasp
Move him to the prison ward.
Viper 2 moves to do as told.
Rasp
I wouldn't want him dying in my new chambers. chuckles
09:29 Room with table. Hammerhead is studying a map.
Hammerhead
Antor, station your antmen point at map here and here. When you're in position my shockers will crush the Dino-Riders once and for all.
Rasp
from off Not so fast, Hammerhead.
Rasp enters.
Rasp
There's been a slight change in plans: I am now in charge.
Hammerhead
You? laughs Your Vipers don't even have the physical strength to defeat the Dino-Riders in battle.
Rasp
Battle is not the only way to defeat an enemy, Hammerhead.
Antor seems confused by this verbal match and now looks at Hammerhead.
Rasp
I have a secret weapon: Serena.
Antor looks back at Rasp.
Hammerhead
Serena?
Rasp
And before the Dino-Riders get her back, they will give me the S.T.E.P. From now on you two take your orders from me.
10:16 The Dino-Riders are still busy doing construction work.
Questar
What's the damage estimate here, Vector?
Vector
According to my calculations, it will take 4 weeks, two days and 16 hours to repair the ship.
Mind-Zei
You have failed to take into account the inner strength of our people.
Questar
Mind-Zei's right. If we listened only to logic, we would've never come this far. Our determination, our inner strength, that's what enabled us to survive against Krulos. I suggest you consider that in your calculations.
Vector
The inner strength is a difficult factor to measure, Questar. I will try to take it into consideration.
Questar and Vector leave. In the background Yungstur, Turret and Gunnur are rolling a large boulder around.
Yungstur
That's enough! I've had it!
Lladh on his pachycephalosaurus, jumps by. He seems to have trouble controlling it.
Yungstur
What's got Llahd so hocked up.
Turret
I don't know.stuttering Maybe we should find out.
Turret, Yungstur and Gunnur run after Llahd. Llahd stops in front of Questar, who was talking to Icon. Mind-Zei walks up to them as well.
Llahd
out of breath, flustered Questar! The Rulons have Serena! We've got to save her! Come on!
Questar lifts Llahd from his saddle.
Questar
Not so fast Llahd. Tell us what happened.
Llahd
A Rulon was about to find me, but Serena let him catch her instead. I'm sorry Mind-Zei. I should've tried to save her.
Mind-Zei bends down and grabs Llahd's shoulders.
Mind-Zei
No Llahd. You did the right thing.
Mind-Zei pats Llahds head.
Questar
Don't worry, Llahd. What we need now is a rescue party.
Icon
I calculate, that with four men we have an 87% chance.
Mind-Zei
Questar, I'm coming with you.
Questar
Understood, Mind-Zei. Serena is your granddaughter. I doubt I could stop you, even if I had a mind to.
Yungstur
Count me in too.
Questar
I'm sorry Yungstur. This job calls for special commando training. calls out Astra! Rock!
He walks over to Astra and Rock. With the help of a triceratops, they were pushing a boulder four times the size than the one Yungstur, Turret and Gunnur had pushed.
Questar
I have an assignment, which requires your particular skills.
They stop pushing the boulder, and face Questar.
Astra
We're in your command.
Llahd runs up to them.
Llahd
pleading I caused all this. Let me help. Please?
Questar
Thanks Llahd, nut I can't allow that. We're going on a very dangerous mission. Very dangerous.
12:08 Serena's prisoner cell. She throws a twig at the laser cell bars. The twig disintegrates on touch.
Serena
frustrated There must be some way out of here.
She looks up and sees the ventilation shaft.
Serena
What's that? Looks just about my size.
She removes the access cover and climbs in. She crawls through the ventilation system.
Serena
strained whisper I wished Krulos had made these airdecks just a little bigger.
The ventilation shaft is huge and splits up several times.
Serena
I don't know where this leads, but I can feel something just ahead, that needs me. Just as she passes a very narrow part, the ship shakes and debris falls down.
Serena Oh no! Another earthquake. [screams]
12:56 The floor under Serena opens and she tumbles down screaming. She falls into a drainage system, that was drilled into the mountain on which the Dreadnaught rests. She slides along the length of the drainage system. At the end she breaks through another access cover and lands on face down.
Serena
Next time, I think I'll take the stairs.
Serena has landed in the underground prison cells.
Serena
It's here.
Serena touches her temples and focuses.
Serena
The wounded animal ... surprised Krulos! Ah, it can't be.
She walks up to Krulos. Is breathing is ragged.
Serena
He's dying. It's his pain I felt. I won't help him. I won't use my healing powers for that ... that monster.
She starts running away.
Krulos
feeble whisper Help me.
Serena stops and turns around. She sees that it takes all of his strength to raise his arm.
13:41 Outside of the Dreadnaught. Questar, Mind-zei, rock and Astra are hiding behind a boulder.
Questar
We've got to find a way inside.
Astra
I'll get us in. With this!
Astra holds up his double barrel phaser.
Questar
No! I was thinking of something a little more quiet.
Mind-Zei
Alert because of arriving patrol Questar!
Two sharkmen walk by guiding a triceratops. The animal is brainboxed, but not armed. Its foot gets stuck in a fissure. Sharkman #1 whips it.
Sharkmen #1
Get moving you stupid beast!
The patrol moves on.
Astra
whispers Want us to jump 'em, Questar?
Questar
Not yet.
They watch as the patrol opens a door and leads the triceratops into the Rulon underground facility.
Questar
Mind-Zei can you break a Rulon combination lock?
Mind-Zei runs to the door.
Mind-Zei
I'll do my best, Questar.
Mind-Zei pushes one of the buttons and the door opens. The Dino-Riders run inside. They come to the dinosaur pen. The triceratops from before is held here.
Questar
This poor animal.
Mind-Zei
My friend I understand. You'd like to do something for the beast.
Astra
Questar we've got to find Serena!
Questar
Mind-Zei give me a hand with this brainbox.
Questar mounts the dinosaur. He and Astra try to remove the brainbox.
Questar
laboured come on. Come on.
The brainbox comes off. The dinosaurs eyes turn from red to yellow.
Questar
Good Work AMP glows. Talks telepathically., touches AMP. You are welcome my new friend. Soon we may need your help.
Questar dismounts.
Mind-Zei
Questar, I sense that Serena is in great danger. We must hurry.
Questar
Let's move.
14:52 Krulos and Serena are still in the underground cell, where Krulos is kept.
Krulos
feeble whisper Help me.
Serena takes his hand and cries. I was given this gift; this gift of healing to use on all living creatures and even you have the right to life. Serena's AMP shines brightly as she touches Krulos.
Serena
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Let my energy flow into you, Krulos. Allow my energy to heal your wounds.
Her AMP stops glowing. Krulos blinks.
Krulos
I...
15:23 Planning room of the Dreadnaught. Rasp, Antor and Hammerhead are present.
Rasp
No! You'll do as I say. I'm the leader now.
Antor
My antmen refuse to follow you.
Rasp
Hammerhead! Destroy this traitor!
Hammerhead
Save your breath snake. I do no ones bidding but my own.
Rasp
You will obey me! I have the Dino-Rider girl.
Mind-Zei and Questar run in.
Questar
And you'll giver her to us.
Mind-Zei
I have come for my granddaughter!
Rasp
surprisedWhat?
Antor
surprised No!
Hammerhead
laughs Questar and a blind man. Do you really think you stand a chance against the three of us?
Astra and Rock drop in behind the generals. They came through the ceiling.
Astra
Make that the four of us. And we're in a little bit of a hurry. If you don't mind: Move!
Hammerhead trembles from anger.
16:09 Underground Rulon facility. The Dino-Riders are escorting the generals to the cells.
Hammerhead
You won't get away with this.
Astra
Oh yeah? says who?
Krulos
from off Says me, Dino-rider! you will all meet your end here.
At the far end of the tunnel Krulos is standing. He is caryying Serena in his arms.
Questar
Krulos, let Serena go! It's me you really want.
Krulos
Yes true Questar. Take her!
Mind-Zei runs up. Krulos puts her on her feet. Mind-Zei helps her stand.
Mind-Zei
Serena are you alright.
Mind-Zei leads her back to the other Dino-Riders. Questar touches his AMP.
Questar
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. My big friend, we need Your help. Now!
The generals walk to stand with Krulos.
Antor
Lord Krulos this was all their fault. indicates his fellow generals
Rasp
Not me, your Lord. I'm your most loyal servant. He's responsible. indicates Hammerhead
Hammerhead shakes Rasp.
Hammerhead
You lie! You lie!
The tunnel starts shaking. rocks fall down. Krulos shield his head with his arms and runs for it.
Krulos
Another earethquake!
Questar takes Serena and runs in the direction they came from.
Questar
Follow me!
Further down the tunnel they meet the triceratops from before. It is throwing itself against the walls. He caused the tremors.
Questar
The outer wall big friend!
The triceratops runs to the door, which they used to enter the underground facility. It uses its horn on its nose to cut the door open. Questar and the two commandos exit the tunnel after the triceratops.
Questar
Hurry!
17:10 In one of the tunnels. Krulos, Rasp, Hammerhead and Antor are here.
Krulos
Alert my troops! Questar must not escape!
Rasp
Yes Krulos!
Antor
Yes Krulos!
Hamerhead
Yes Krulos!
The three generals bow before there lord, then they run to do as told.
Hammerhead
My Shockers will be the first to target Questar!
Antor
No my men will!
Rasp
Fools! Only the Vipers can succeed.
17:21 A hole Rulon platoon moves out. They include monocloni, triceratops's, pteranodons's, deinonychus's and a tyrannosaurus rex.
Krulos
Find Questar! Bring him to me!
The Shockers are first to target Questar and his men. The Dino-Riders run into the jungle for cover.
Questar
Krulos has the advantage. We're surrounded with no way out.
Mindzei touches his temples.
Mind-Zei
Maybe not Questar.
Gunnur
telepathically from off Heads up, Questar. We're on the way!
Questar touches his AMP.
Questar
AMP glows. Talks telepathically. Gunnur, your timimng is right on target; Again! Thanks.
Gunnur
It ain'T nothing, any other red-blooded Dino-Rider wouldn't do.
We see that a brigade group of torosaurus's is on its way.
Gunnur
telepathically to his torosaurus Time to get to work big fella.
Gunnur's laser fire fells a tree blocking the Rulon advance.
Yungstur
from off Yahooo!
A torosaurus and a monoclonius are running at each other. The torosaurus deploys its trip beam and trips the monoclonius. Laser fire shots back and forth. The brainbox is blown off the pteranodon, which Rasp was riding. The pteranodon throws Rasp off, he falls into a stream.
Rasp
angry You stupid bird!
Antor and his men, all riding deinonychus, keep advancing at the Dino-Riders.
Gunnur
telepathically from off Anybody need a lift. We got a triceratops here, that wants to help. Hop aboard.
The triceratops from before is standing next to the torosaurus's wearing a Rulon saddle, but without armor. Questar and his group run to it. Questar palces Serena in one of the seats, the runs over to Gunnur.
Gunnur
Howdy Questar. We got a little surprise for Krulos and his bunch.
Questar boards the second command stand, of Gunnurs torosaurus.
Questar
Sounds like something I wouldn't wanna miss.
Krulos on his t-rex command stand.
Krulos
No. No! No, they're getting away.
Antor
I'l stop them, oh glorious Krulos.
Hammerhead
You?! You couldn't catch Questar, when he fell in your lap.
Krulos
grunts Do I have to do everything myself? Forward!
Questar and Gunnur on the torosaurus.
Gunnur
I figured you need a little help, so we set up some tar-pots. Fire!
The Dino-Riders fire at the tree-tops. The laser fire tears the nets, that held the tar-pots. Hammerhead looks up and is hit by tar.
Hammerhead
What? screams
Antor points at him.
Antor
laughs
Antor is also hit with tar.
Antor
screams
Krulos is also hit with tar. He tries to wipe it off.
Krulos
screams No power on earth will stop me! Do you hear me Questar? No power on earth!
Back at the torosaurus, comandeered by Questar and Gunnur.
Questar
laughs Gunnur, sounds to me that's our queue to head home.
Serena
from off I'm for that!
Serena is fine. She is still in the seat of the triceraops.
Serena
It's been quite a day.
19:37 Serena is doind target praxis. She is upset about something.
Mind-Zei
from off Serena! Mind if I join you child?
Serena turns to the source of the voice.
Serena
Grandfather! I'm sorry, but I'd rather be alone just now.
Mind-Zei
I understand your feelings, but what you did ...
Serena is even more upset and resumes her practice.
Serena
I know, shot I shot should shot have shot letshot Krulos die!
She hit all targets dead center. She keeps on shooting. Mind-Zei walks up to her and lowers her gun.
Mind-Zei
No child.
Serena
But if I had let Krulos die the war would've been over. We could've had peace.
Mind-Zei aims over his shoulder and also hits dead center.
Mind-Zei
Perhaps. But as a Dino-Rider, you could have done no less as you did. I'm proud of you.
Questar, Gunnur, Llahd, Turret and Yungstur walk in.
Questar
We're all proud of you, Serena. And never fear: We'll beat Krulos. We'll beat him fair and square. In battle!
Yungstur
Hey Questar, looks like you kinda made a friend.
Yungstur points at the freed triceratops.
Questar
Oh! One of the best. Right now we got plenty to do here. What do you say: we all get back to work.
