A series of earthquakes and a sudden heat wave hit the Dino-Riders unexpected. The earthquakes have blocked a river that is vital for the dinosaurs living in dinosaur canyon. Tagg leaves the camp to help them and discovers the unthinkable.
00:32
Dino-Rider Camp - housing area
Serena, Yungstur, Llahd, Gunnur, Turret
It's day. It's Hot. A styracosaurus trudges slowly through camp. Three dimetrodon lay around swinging their sails from side to side to cool off. Serena and Yungstur are sitting on the ground leaning onto one of the dimetrodon. They're using palm leafs to cool off.
Yungstur
Hewupff. I'm hot and I am bored, Serena. 
Serena
Yeah I know what you mean, Yungstur. I wonder when this heatwave will end.Points at a dimetrodon. At least our dinosaur friends have some natural protection from the sun. 
Yungstur
ish I could say the same. I's so hot I don't even want to move. 
Serena
Guess everybody feels that way. 
Llahd is seen feeding an exhausted ankylosaur, while Gunnur and Turret give a styracosaurus a sponge bath. Gunnur wrings out his sponge and splashes Turrret.
Turret
Hey! Watch it, Gunnur.Shakes head free of water.  
Gunnur
surprisedMe? You're in my way Turret. 
 
01:03
Jungle
Questar, Tagg, Dino-Rider#1
Questar on a pachycephalosaurus, Tagg on a protoceratops and Dino-Rider#1 on an edmontonia are out patroling.
Questar
I'm concerned, Tagg. This heat is making everyone irritable. 
Tagg
Mhm. Look on the bright side. Maybe the heat's a blessing in disguise, Questar. We haven't seen Krulos in a month. The heat'S probably making him miserable, too. 
Questar
unconvincedMhrm. Perhaps. Never the less we need something to cheer up the troops. Ah I have a thought. Maybe a round of Dino-Rider games would do the trick. you could even show ho you trained our three new dinosaurs.   
Tagg
happychuckles I thought you'd never ask. 
The three continue their patrol through the jungle.
 
01:35
Dino-Rider camp. Training grounds
Tagg, Questar, Yungstur, Serena, Gunnur, Erol, six Dino-Riders, Dino-Rider#1, Turret, Llahd
A steel training wall has been errected, a stone arc stands nearby and a pile of boulders have been gathered. Tagg stands amidst it while some Dino-Riders stand around watching.
Tagg
And now performing feats never before attempted by dinosaurs. I give you the terrific trio. 
The crowd rejoices. Llahd is riding the pachycephalosaurus, Turret the protoceratops and Dino-Rider#1 commandeers edmontonia.
Tagg
First Turret will demonstrate that walking armored personnel carrier: Protoceratops! 
The protoceratops moves forard and bows to the crowd.
Turret
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Okay, big guy. Let'er rip. 
The protoceratops blows a hole into the steel wall and jumps through. The crowd rejoices.
Tagg
Next that living tank: Edmontonia! 
The Edmontonia raises its side shields and runs straight through the pile of boulders. The crowd rejoices.
Tagg
At last, but certainly not least. That original bonehead: pachycephalosaurus. 
Llahd
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Okay boy, let's show 'em. 
the pachycephalosaurus roars and runs at the stone arc and hits it with its head, destroing it. The crowd rejoices.
Tagg
Does a half bow. Thank you. And now for our next demonstration... 
Suddenly the ground starts to shake.
Serena
stuttersIt's an earthquake. 
Questar
 
Hang on, everybody. 
Mind-Zei
I sense that was not an earthquake, Questar. 
Serena
What else could it have been, grandfather? 
Questar
Perhaps an explosion, an underground explosion, Mind-Zei. But how and where. 
Tagg
Questar if you don't mind I'd like to ride out to dinosaur canyon. I wanna check on my other new recruits. 
Questar
Good idea, Tagg. That was a pretty strong jolt. 
Llahd
worriedhyperventilating Can I go, too? Please? 
Questar
If it's okay with Tagg. It's okay with me. 
Tagg
Come on, Llahd. Let's sadle up and move out. 
Mind-Zei stands shakily. Questar grabs his shoulder stabilizing him.
Questar
You look troubled, Mind-Zei. What is it? 
Mind-Zei
 
thoughtful Mhm. I'm searching for an explanation for the tremor we've felt. I have a feeling there may be more to it. 
Tagg has mounted a pachycephalosaurus, while Llahd has mounted his pterodactylus.
Tagg
Okay, last one to dinosaur canyon is a rotten Rulon. 
Llahd
laughs You're on, Tagg. Let's go. 
 
03:23
A cavern inside an active volcano
Croc, Skate, two antmen, Krulos, Rasp, Hammerhead
Inside an active volcano a group of Rulons - commandeered by Croc and Skate - is tunneling through. Croc and Skate are commandeering a pair of antmen, who are using the lasers of their triceratops' to blast a new tunnel. Around them the fumes of lava pools rise. The group is watched by Krulos, Rasp and Hammerhead that stand on a hightened viewpoint.
Croc
Again. Fire! 
The antmen fire the lasers and the stone explodes.
Skate
No clear it away. 
The triceratops' use their heads to push aay the ruble.
Krulos
chuckles How fortunate this planet has these underground lava tubes. Soon we will be directly under the Dino-Rider's camp. First I will destroy Questar then the S.T.E.P. crystal will be mine. 
Rasp
Yes, lord Krulos, your plan is brilliant. But our dinosaur slaves grow tired from working day and night. Soon they will drop like the others. 
Hammerhead
What we need Flexes muscles to sho off the definition. are fresh dinosaurs, my lord. 
Rasp
My vipers have found a canyon near the Dino-Rider's camp here there are many dinosaurs. 
Krulos
Hoo. How perfect. I'll defeat Questar with his own beasts.laughs  
 
04:25
Dinosaur canyon
Llahd, Tagg, Rasp, Hammerhead
The canyon is home to many dinosaurs including saurolophus, protoceratops, edmontonia and pachycephalosaurus. Llahd with his pterodactylus lands ontop of the cliff.
Llahd
Laughs and waves at Tagg. Yeah. I won. I won the race! 
Tagg on a pachycephalosaurus pulls up next to Llahd.
Tagg
Yeah, but it seems my dinosaur friends are loosing this one. The quake must've dropped that boulder now it's blocking their water hole. Er. Can fix that. 
Tagg rides down to the blocked waterhole. He scares a group of three edmontonia, that were drinking from the little water there was.
Tagg
Hang on, friends. I'll fill your drinking fountain, but we're gonna need some room. 
The pachycephalosaurus backs up a few measured steps.
Tagg
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Okay, big guy. Do your thing. 
The pachycephalosaurus lowers its head and rams the boulder repeatedly until it bursts. The water can now flow freely.
Tagg
Patts the pachycephalosaurus Good work, boy. Yells, adressing the canyon dinosaurs Okay you guys. Drink up! 
All the canyon dinosaurs bend to drink from the reestablished stream.
Llahd
Way to go, Tagg. 
Movement at the far end of the canyon surprises Llahd. Two Rulons on triceratops' are approaching.
Llahd
Tagg! Rulons! 
 
05:15
Dinosaur canyon
Hammerhead, Rasp, Llahd, Tagg
Hammerhead and Rasp each rides on a triceratops into dinosaur canyon.
Hammerhead
disgustyellsA Dino-Rider! 
Rasp
Destroy him! 
They attack Tagg. Tagg is surprised by the attacked.
Tagg
eyes narrow It's Rasp and Hammerhead. Gotta outfox them. to pachycephalosaurusCome on, buddy. 
The pachycephalosaurus turns and runs deeper into the canyon. The two Rulons pursue him. From his vantage point Llahd can see what's going on.
Llahd
AMP touched, telepathicallyTagg needs our help. Let's show 'em waht we can do. 
Llahd pushes off. He and his pterodactylus glide into the canyon. Llahd launches his rockets which impact into the sides of the canyon. The resulting landslide seperates Tagg from his followers. Rasp and Hammerhead fire at the ruble in order to clear it.
Rasp
Oh. We've been tricked. 
Llahd lands next to Tagg.
Tagg
Thanks, Llahd. No fly back to camp and get Questar. I'll stay to protect our dinosaurs. And hurry! 
Llahd
I'm on my way, Tagg. 
Llahd and his pterodactylus take off. They fly over the Rulons.
Hammerhead
Points at Llahd. And there is the one who tricked us. 
Hammerhead shoots at Llahd with his handlaser. He lands a grazing shot.
Rasp
Hold your fire, Hammerhead. It's the one called Tagg we must elminate, points at the dinosaurs trapped on their side of the canyon.but we wil let his beloved pets do the job for us.laughs  
Rasp turns around his triceratops and hammerhead follows his lead. Rasp fires at the dinosaurs.
Rasp
We'll stampede them. 
Raps and Hammerhead guide the stampedeing dinosaurs towards the obstacle.
Tagg
What are those two Rulons up to now? It sounds like dinosaurs; Lot's of dinosaurs. And headed this way. 
The stampede breaks through the obstacle and heads straight for Tagg.
Tagg
shockedNo! Stop! 
 
06:47
dinosaur canyon
Tagg
Tagg
Frightened.No! Stop! 
Just as the stampede is about to reach Tagg a chasm opens underneath of him. He falls in. The stampede is stopped by the chasm and the dinosaurs leave. Rasp and Hammerhead ride to the edge of the chasm.
Hammerhead
joylaughsWe're rid of that Dino-Rider. 
 
laughsYes. That's the end of Tagg. 
 
07:14
Underground cavern
Tagg, Skate, Croc, nine antmen, Krulos, Antor
After his drop Tagg and his pachycephalosaurus landed in an underground cavern. Tagg has unmounted and leads his pachycephalosaurus around.
Tagg
Okay, big fellow. 
Tagg mounts his dinosaur.
Tagg
I didn't know there were caverns down here. 
Tagg
thoughtfulmuted voice Don't think we're alone. 
Infront of Tagg another cavern opens. Four antmen, each riding a triceratops are clearing away rubble. Two more antmen stand guard. Skate and croc are supervising.
Croc
Move! Work harder! Faster! Krulos grows impatient. 
Tagg
shockedwhispers Rulons? Down here? 
Croc
To Skate. We must reach the Dino-Riders location before they suspect our plan. 
Tagg
baffledThey're using dinosaurs to tunnel under our camp. I could bring down a couple a tons of rock on them, but without endangering those poor brainboxed triceratops. I have to get out of here and warn Questar. Lets go, fella. 
Tagg and his pachycephalosaurus leave for another cavern. They stop underneath a low ceiling.
Tagg
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.This looks as good a spot as any. Erh. 
The pachycephalosaurus jumps up and rams the ceiling ith its head. The ceiling comes down.
Tagg
joyAlmost got it. An escape hatch straight to freedom. 
Krulos
from off. To bad you won't have a chance to use it, Dino-Rider. 
Tagg
surprisedKrulos! 
Krulos riding a triceratops and Antor and three of his men each standing next to a placerias, appear behind Tagg.
Krulos
Yes, Dino-Rider. And you shall be my guest for the rest of your short life. Take him, Antor! 
Antor and his men, including the placerias', move to do as told.
Antor
As you command, master. 
Tagg
Sorry, Krulos, but I got other plans. 
Tagg uses his hand phaser to attack the antmen, who immediatly return fire. They hit Taggs saddle. The detonation throws Tagg of his saddle. Two of the antmen use the opportunity to throw a net over him.
Tagg
Fights net. Get this thing of a me. 
While two of the antmen take care of Tagg the other two try to subdue the pachycephalosaurus, which is fighting off the Rulons.
Krulos
Don't let the dinosaur get away, you fools. I want it. 
The pachycephalosaurus escapes his attackers and attacks KRulos directly. The pachycephalosaurus rams into the triceratops's side at full speed. The impact throws Krulos of his seat. The antmen use the pachycephalosaurus destraction and fire the placerias mounted grapple hooks. The pachycephalosaurus is aught at the ankles. Meanwhile the other two antmen have subdued Tagg.
Antor
We have him. 
The pachycephalosaurus snaps the ropes holding him.
Tagg
desperateTouches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Run! 
The pachycephalosaurus runs for the collapsed ceiling. Antor and one of his men move to intercept the pachycephalosaurus.
Antor
Stop the beast. 
They're to late. The pachycephalosaurus breaks through the ceiling and escapes.
Tagg
happyyells Alright! You made it! 
Krulos
You have little to cheer about, Dino-Rider. Walks towards Tagg. He is flanked by Croc and Skate. Your friend can't save you now. And soon I will have the S.T.E.P. crystal when I do Questar and the Dino-Riders will be history. 
Tagg
You don't have that crystal yet. And you never will. 
Croc
Raises weapon.Stop! No one talks to lord Krulos like that. 
Krulos
Puts hand on Croc's weapon and shakes head. Not just yet, Croc. As we near the Dino-Rider's camp we may ant him for bait. If I have this piece of cheese Questar will walk right into my trap.laughs  
 
09:37
Dino-Rider camp
Questar, Gunnur, Yungstur, Serena, Llahd, Turret
Llahd is standing amidst Questar, Serena, Yungstur and Gunnur. Turret is neary feeding a quetzacoatlus.
Llahd
Out of breath. In pain. And that's what hapened, Questar. 
Questar
You did your best to help Tagg, Llahd. Now it is up to us. Gunnur! Yungstur! Serena! YellsTurret, we need you too. Mount up. 
Turret puts the pot he's carrying infront of the quetzacoatlus and runs to mount a styracosaurus. The quetzacoatlus happily feeds. Questar and Gunnur mount a torosaurus. Yungstur mounts a quetzacoatlus. Serena stands next to Llahd.
Serena
Questar! I'll catch up to you after I tend to Llahd's wound. 
Questar
Good. Alright Dino-Riders; To dinosaur canyon. 
They move out.
 
10:04
Dino-Riders command centre
Llahd, Serena
Serena tends to Llahd's wound.
Llahd
WhinesIt's, it's not fair. I wanna help to. 
Serena pats him on the head.
Serena
encouragingLlahd, you've done your part. Now leave the battle to Questar. Relax Massages Llahd's lower arm.and let my healing energy flow through you. Let it mend your wound. 
Llahd
surprisedHey! It's better already. Lets go help Tagg. 
Serena
StrictYou are staying here! Questar's orders. 
Llahd
disappointedAlright. If it's an order. 
Serena leaves and runs to mount her pteroanodon. They take off.
 
10:35
dinosaur canyon
Questar, Gunnur, Turret, Yungstur, Krulos, two antmen, Tagg
Questar and Gunnur stand in dinosaur canyon, Yungstur and Turret are still mounted and stand around. It is deserted except for Tagg's pachycephalosaurus.
Gunur
thoughtfulrubs chinThis is crazy, Questar. Yesterday this canyon was teening with dinosaurs. Today? Nothing. Nothing except for Tagg's pachycephalosaurus 
Turret
That's not all, Gunnur. Look at Tagg's saddle. It's really ben blasted. Unmounts Look my mount's awfully uneasy about something. 
Yungstur
Yeah, mine's acting kinda funny too. 
Gunnur
They all are. Like they're scared. 
Questar
It's Krulos. He's up to something. 
Gunnur
Up to something. I guess you can put it that way. 
A noise from above startles Gunur.
Gunnur
surprisedpoints up Look! 
Krulos riding a triceratops is looking down at them.
Krulos
So you've arrived at last, Questar. I've been expecting you.Laughs  
Gunnur
Draws his handphaser. Let me silence that creep. Once and for all. 
Questar
whispers. Holds back Gunnur. Wait.Lets see what he is up to. 
Krulos
A wise move, Questar, considering might've had happened if Gunnur had fired.Points next to him.  
Two Antmen lead the captured Tagg forward so the other Dino-Riders see him.
Krulos
laughs  
Yungstur
surprisedPoints at Tagg.It's Tagg. 
 
11:34
Inside the active Volcano
Skate, Croc, eleven antmen.
Antmen are working on tunneling under the volcano. They are overseen by Skate and Croc. Three Antmen on triceratops' are drilling forward while another three antmen on edmontonias and one on a saurulophus break down walls. Four antmen on placerias' remove the rubble.
Croc
Well, how much longer until we are directly under the Dino-Rider ship?  
 
thoughtfulLets see; According to my calculations it should take that is if all goes well.  
Croc
impatient Though how much longer?  
Skate
A few minutes. 
The four antmen on edmontonias blast through the last wall.
 
12:00
Dino-Riders command centre
Llahd
Llahd has fallen asleep in the command centre. The ground starts to shake.
Llahd
Huh? Another earthquake? 
 
12:06
dinosaur canyon
Questar, Turret, Yungstur, Gunnur, Krulos, Tagg, sixteen antmen, three vipers, seven sharkmen
Gunnur, Questar, Yungstur and Turret have all dismounted. Krulos still rides his triceratops and has all its weapons pointed at the Dino-Rider party. Tagg is still held captive by the antmen.
Questar
YellsWhat's your game, Krulos? 
Krulos
This is no game, Dino-Rider. As long as I hold your man prisoner you must do as I command. We must carefully consider our options. 
Tagg is working his bonds.
Gunnur
He's stalling. I smell a Rulon trap. 
Questar
Yells Don't play games with us, Krulos. What're your terms? 
Tagg has loosened his bonds considerably.
Krulos
My terms? Simple. You may have your friend in exchange for the S.T.E.P. crystal. 
Questar
The S.T.E.P., huh? That's hardly a surpri .... 
The ground starts shaking.
Turret
Another tremor. 
Questar
Not a tremor. I finally understand what Krulos is up to. I just hope we're not to late to stop him. 
Krulos
You'Re fools, all of you. I've kept you here like rats in a trap, while my warriors blasted their way underground to your very doorstep. 
Gunnur
I knew it was a trap. 
Krulos
Negotiations are now over. We'll break into your spacecraft and I will have what I want! But in the meantime You can all die. laughs  
A unit of three vipers on monocloni, three sharkmen on triceratops' and four sharkmen on deinonychus now flanks Krulos, to his left and a unit of fourteen antmen has assembled.
Questar
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Look for cover we got a fight on our hands. 
Gunnur
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.We'll give it our best shot. 
Krulos
Any last request, Dino-Riders? For today you will die! 
 
13:35
dinosaur canyon
Questar, Turret, Yungstur, Gunnur, Krulos, Tagg, sixteen antmen, three vipers, seven sharkmen
Krulos
Rulons! On my command: Destroy everything that breathes. 
Tagg working his bonds has finally freed himself.
Tagg
Closes eyes. Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Pachycephalosaurus, up here! hurry! 
The pachycephalosaurus sheds its saddle and runs towards Tagg.
 
Stands up.Rulons attack! Sees pachycephalosaurus. Knees down on his triceratops, to have a better look.Curious What's this? 
The pachycephalosaurus is still accelarating.
Tagg
Eyes cloase. Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically. Give it all you've got. 
The pachycephalosaurus lowers its head and smashes into the canyon wall just underneath the Rulons. The wall cracks and the cracks propagate through the wall.
Krulos
Drops back into saddle. It's hit a weak spot in the canyon wall. The rim is going to collapse. urgentTurns to his assembled men. Waves them away.Back off, before we're all buried in an avalanche. 
The Rulons hurriedly flee. Tagg looses his stand and falls over the rim, luckily he can grab the edge before he drops.
Questar
urgentNow's our chance. Yungstur, find Serena and rescue Tagg. 
Yungstur mounts his quetzacoatlus and takes off.
Questar
eyes closed. Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically. Torosaurus. Styracosaurus. Stamp your feet on the ground. 
There suddenly is another fully armed torosaurus?! The dinosaurs do as told and the floor starts to crack and finally caves in. The Dino-Riders drop to the caverns underneath.
Questar
We're going to beat the Rulons by their own game by reaching our camp before they do. The S.T.E.P. must be protected. 
Tagg is still hanging from the cliffside. Yungstur doesn't care much about Tagg it seems. He looks after the other Dino-Riders and notices that the avalanche has created a slope underneath of him. He lets go and lands on a flat piece of rock. Standing on the piece of rock he slides down the slope.
Tagg
Thrilled Yeewhoo! Goes into knees to lower his center of gravity. Man this would make a grat sport.Laughs  
Tagg jumps of his makeshift rockboard and runs towards his pachycephalosaurus.
Tagg
Wait for me buddy. Out of breath. Mounts pachycephalosaurus and pets it. Good to be back, old fella. 
Krulos
The Dino-Riders have fled, but they will not escape. 
The Rulons also us the slope to come down into the canyon. They immediatly open fire at Tagg.
Krulos
Pursue them. Wipe them and all traces of them of the faces of the earth. 
Tagg flees from the Rulons and is pursued. Suddenly Yungstur (quetzacoatlus) and Serena (pteroanodon) fly over and open fire at the Rulons. Immediatly they are targeted by two sharkmen (pteroanodons).
Tagg
Come on big buddy we've gotta get back to camp. 
Serena and Yungstur escort Tagg out of the canyon. The Rulons outnumbered them and the still didn't pursue them?. Krulos and two of his men have stopped by the hole Questar created to enter the tunnels.
Krulos
Questar thinks he can escape me down there, but he is wrong. To his men. All of you, Follow me! 
The Rulons enter the tunnels through the hole.
 
15:11
Dino-Rider command center
Llahd
The ground is shaking. Llahd is almost hit by falling debris.
Llahd
Somethings odd. Runs to S.T.E.P. and opens the crystal chamber. No matter what I've got to guard the S.T.E.P..Grabs the S.T.E.P. crytal.  
 
15:19
Underground cavern
Croc, Skate, four antmen
The enslaved Rulon dinosaurs (two pachycephalosauri, two protoceratops and an edmontonia ) are still busy clearing the tunnel of debris. They are guarded and helped by six antmen. Croc and Skate supervise them.
Skate
We're now within inches of breaking into the Dino-Rider ship. We must plan our next move most carefully. 
Croc
Annoyed Carefully? disgusted grunt There is no need for your fancy plans. I'll just grab the S.T.E.P. and the Dino-Riders will never know what hit them.laughs  
The unarmed pachycephalosauri look up and fire at the tunnels roof.
 
15:40
Underground tunnels
Questar, Gunnur and Turret
Questar (torosaurus), Gunnur (torosaurus) and Tagg (styracosaurus) stand before a fork in the tunnel. Three tunnels lead away.
Turret
No what Questar? Three lava-tubes all leading in the general direction of our camp. 
Questar
Touches forehead in deep thought. We split up. Each of us takes a different tube. That way one of us will reach the S.T.E.P. and dismounts keep it from falling into Rulon hands. 
Questar runs into the middle tunnel followed by his torosaurus. Gunnur (on his torosaurus) takes the left and Turret (on his styracosaurus) the right.
 
15:56
Underground Tunnels
Turret, Rasp
Turret on his styracosaurus rides slowly through the tunnels.
Turret
I'm beginning to think we've been riding in circles big guy. surpriseInhales sharply.Rasp? 
Rasp has appeared at the other end of the tunnel. He is riding a monoclonius.
Rasp
So nice of you to drop in. And now it is time for you to drop out! Permanently! 
Rasp charges at Turret and opens fire. Turret's seat takes a few blows.
Turret
Good thing I built this rig to take punishment. 
Turret returns fire. Rasp ducks to avoid a shot aimed at his head. Rasp turns his dinsoaur around and attacks with its tail.
Turret
We don't wanna hurt your dinosaur, Rasp. So ... 
Turret shoots at the tunnel's roof, causing it to cave in. The debris seperates Rasp and Turret.
Rasp
you'll pay for this, Dino-Rider. 
Turret leaves the tunnel.
Turret
Sure. Just send me the bill, Rulon. 
Rasp
to monocloniusMove you ignorant beast. 
 
16:34
Underground tunnels
Gunnur, Hammerhead
Gunnur on his torosaurus rides through a cavern made entirely of crystals.
Gunnur
awedLook at this, fella. Have you ever seen so many quartz crystals. 
Hammerhead
Enjoy the view while you can, Dino-Rider. Because they're the last things you'll ever see.laughs  
Hammerhead can't be seen directly, but he and the monoclonius he's riding are reflected by every crystal.
Gunnur
yells keep laughing Hammerhead. You make an easier target. 
Gunnur shoots at the crystals that refelected Hammerhead.
Gunnur
Eyes closed. Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Okay, big boy, how are you at sniffing out Rulons? 
The torosaurus takes a good sniff and charges Hammerhead at full speed. Hammerhead is frightened by the torosaurus and flees.
Gunnur
telepathicallyLooks like we caught a big one. 
The torosaurus slows down and Gunnur fires his harpune cannon. It hits the crystals above the exit Hamerhead is trying to flee trhough. The exit caves in just as Hammerhead rides underneath. The crystals rain on Hammerhead, burying him.
 
Screams in fear and agony.  
Gunnur fires his lasers and causes more crystals to drop on Hammerhead.
Gunnur
Hey Hammerhead. Nothing personal. You understand?To the torosaurus. Let's go, Toro. laughs  
The torosaurus turns around and they leave the cavern.
Hammerhead
HatredGurgles in impotent fury.  
 
17:32
Underground tunnels
Questar, Krulos
Questar is running through the tunnels. He has his handphaser drawn. He runs into Krulos, who is no riding a triceratops.
Krulos
Greetings, Dino-Rider. Alone are we? You've been nothing but trouble, Questar. Now it will my supreme pleasure to personally destroy you. 
Krulos opens fire. Questar evades by jumping and flipping behind a boulder.
Questar
Seems to me I've heard that before, Krulos.Returns fire.  
Krulos
amusedchuckles.But this will be the last time, Questar. Your weapon's low on power. laughs  
Questar
Out of breath.He's right. I've only got one shot left. 
Krulos approaches Questar's position. Questar runs for it and enters another tunnel.
Krulos
amusedTurning coward, Dino-Rider? Not many places to hide. laughs  
The tunnel Questar has run into is made of gold.
Questar
Out of breath. Stops.A gold chamber. 
Krulos has caught up again.
Krulos
Ah, Questar. How lovely. You've chosen a tomb of gold. 
Krulos fires a shot, which is reflected multiple times by the gold. Questar avoids it, by ducking behind a boulder.
Quesatr
Out of breath. So the gold reflect laser fire. I've got to calculate this precisly. 
Questar aims and fires at the gold. The shot is reflected multiple times.
Krulos
No it's not possible! 
Questars shot is reflected into the barrel of the laser cannon mounted on the right side of Krulos's seat. The cannon explodes and destroys the dinosaur armor and frees the triceratops of its brainbox. The explosion throws Krulos forward into a wall. The freed triceratops runs away and Questar qickly jumps onto it.
Krulos
Out of breath.Whoo. What happened? 
 
18:50
Dino-Rider command center
Croc, Skate, Llahd, Tagg, Questar, Gunnur, Turret
The command center seems deserted. The flame of a plasma cutter can be seen cutting an entrance into the floor from underneath. Croc enters through the newly made entrance.
Croc
The S.T.E.P. It's ours.Gets bearings and then walks towards the S.T.E.P.It's surprise gone! The S.T.E.P. crystal where is it? 
Croc is alerted by a wheezing breath behind him.
Croc
Aha. Somebody's hiding it. I can smell it.He sniffs the air.  
Llahd is hiding behind a wardrobe sized computer rack, tightly embracing the crystal.
Llahd
determinedwhispersNo Rulon's going to get this crystal, while I'm around. 
Croc slowly comes closer. He jumps forward and grabs Llahd, thus toplling the computer rack. Llahd turns so he's between Croc and the crystal.
Croc
Ah. The S.T.E.P., boy, surrender it. 
Llahd
defiantOver my dead body! 
Tagg
Or maybe over yours, Croc. 
Tagg on his pachycephalosaurus rides into the command center.
Croc
Out of my way, kid.Pushes Llahd away. Then draws his handphaser. You're asking for it, Dino-Rider. 
Tagg
Okay, fella, lets take him. 
The pachycephalosaurus lowers its head and Tagg presses himself closer to the dinosaur. They ram into Croc, who flies backwards heel over head.
 
painscreams Interfeering fool. 
Croc jumps down the entrance he had cut earlier.
Tagg
Breath labored. Now make sure he doesn't come back. Lets get him.  
Tagg dismount and the pachycephalosaurus rams the floor next to the entrance with its head. The resulting qake makes Croc loose his hold and fall down into the tunnels.

Croc lands infront of Skate.
Croc
desperateSkate! Yeah Skate! I know you can find the S.T.E.P.. You just ... You just climb up ...    
Questar
Wrong again, Rulon. Because we're condemning your tunnel project. Permanently 
Questar has entered the tunnel. He is commandeering a torosaurus. Turret (styracosaurus) and Gunnur (torosaurus) are behind him. They start firing at the tunnels roof, causing it to cave in.

Questar, Gunnur
Questar and Gunnur are standing on higher ground, the jungle in their backs.
Questar
Well Gunnur the S.T.E.P. crystal is safe and I don't think Krulos will be tunneling through the lava tubes again. 
Gunnur
And it looks like Tagg has some new dinosaur recruits. Points down towards Tagg  
Tagg is currently feeding a pachycephalosaurus. A protoceratops and an edmontonia watch attentively. Tagg pets the pachycephalosaurus while it feeds.
Gunnur
Er, I mean friends.
