It's Thanksgiving and the Dino-Riders are preparing a feast. Only Llahd is not in the mood for celebrating and mopes. Meanwhile the Rulons build a damn in order to control the water supply of the surrounding valleys.
The peaceful jungle. A river winds through it. We follow the river upstream, until we reach a dam. Antmen and their enslaved triceratops are finishing the huge concrete building. Antor stands on top overseeing everything.
Antor
You down there. Get that triceratops to pull its own weight.
One of the Antmen whips the triceratops harder. In a pavillon higher up Poxx is talking to Krulos.
Poxx
Krulos I assure you, that my plan will work. Once the dam is complete we will stop the river from flowing into the plains and store the water here.
Pan of the huge reservoir behind the dam.
Krulos
laughing Without water the Dino-Riders and the dinosaurs will be completely helpless. Anyone who wishes to live will have to come crawling on their knees to me. I am particularly delighted by the timing of your project.
Poxx
Why is that lord Krulos?
Krulos
Because, you fool, today is the Dino-Riders day of thanksgiving.
Poxx
Ah, yes, of course. Of corse indeed. That is perfect
Krulos
And we will give them a Thanksgiving day they will remember. My plan will spoil their little party! laughter
01:44 Overhead shot of the Valorian camp. We see the entrance to the ship and a huge table loaded with all kinds of goods. Campfires are scattered about, with pots sitting on them. The Valorians are seeing walking around. We can see a river nearby. Selena is seen overseeing the procedures. Questar faces a group consisting of: Turret, a Protoceratops and two unknown Dino-Riders. (Maybe he is answering a question, the dinosaurs had.)
Questar
Telepathically, holds AMP, which glows Today we celebrate thanksgiving. We give thanks, that our race has lived in peace for 20,000 years.
Questar goes over to Serena, who gives him a spoon. He then starts tasting the layd out foods.
Serena
Telepathically, holds AMP, which glows We always observed this day on our home planet. And now, that we have settled on earth...
Questar interupts Serena and turns to face her.
Questar
Telepathically, AMP glows, mouth moves And are living in peace and harmony with you, our dinosaur friends. We decided to celebrate it here too.
Icon and Llahd walks into the scene.
Icon
I hope so Questar, but if this drought continues much longer, I fear there is a 76.3% chance, that...
Llahd interrupts Icon.
Llahd
Upset Ah, who cares. I won't seem like thanksgiving on this planet here anyway. wi Questar: Llahd that doesn't sound like you. I thought you liked it here with all our dinosaur friends.
A protoceratops roars in answer to Questar. Gunner is stirring a pot, that is almost as high as he is. Others are still adding to its contents.
Gunner
Who'd'a guessed last thanksgiving, that this year we 'd be cooking up a dinosaur sized feast. Huh? ##S'cockamaybeplatter##.
A Diplodocus bends towards the pot. Yungstur tastes its contents.
Yungstur
Mhm. Almost done. Wouldn't you say?
Turret can be seen walking to the pot, basket in hand.
Gunnur
Looks a little thick to me. Needs a little water.
Yungstur picks up to buckets. And walks past the Diplodocus.
Yungstur
Okay I'll take this guy down to the river. Back in a sec.
02:46 Pan of the damn and the resorvoir. The pavillon from before can be seen. Krulos standing within. Poxx is walking towards it.
Poxx
Lord Krulos, the damn is now complete!
Krulos
Then put it to use.
Poxx cups his hands and calls to the men below.
Poxx
Close the floodgates.
Antor stands on part of the damn. His men are riding Triceratops, which are tied to the floodgates.
Antor
You heard him. Quickly! Quickly!
The Triceratops move forward pulling the floodgates closed. The gates created a small wave, that travels along the river.
03:05 The Dino-Riders(Questar, Serena, Gunnur, Llahd, Turret, Icon, Rock, Bomber, Glide and Erol) are now standing around the pot Gunnur stirred earlier. Serena takes a spoonfull, and gives it Llahd, who tastes it.
Llahd
Sorry Serena. It is just not the same.
Serena puts her hand on Llahd's shoulder.
Serena
I know how you feel Llahd, but this is our home now. And thanksgiving is part of being home.
Questar walks up to Llahd and puts his arm around his shoulder.
Questar
Hey cheer up fellow, most kids would be happy to have neighbourghs like this, to celebrate with.
Llahd pushes his arm off.
Llahd
Questar if it was just another day, it would be fine, but thanksgiving reminds me off...
Llahd is interrupted by Yungstur. We see Yungstur with the two buckets in hand. The Diplodocus is sitting next to him.
Yungstur
Panting We ... [pants] We got trouble. Big trouble, Questar!
Questar grabs Yungstur by the shoulders.
Questar
What's up Yungstur?
Yungstur
Panting The River [pants] it's ... it's gone!
Questar
Come on!
Questar starts running, followed by the other Dino-Riders!
03:46 We see that the Riverbed is dried out, except for small puddles. The Dino-Riders arrive at full sprint. Vector jumps into the dried out Riverbed, to test the depth of the puddles.
Questar
This looks bad! Icon what are your projections?
Icon's staff starts to glow, giving of a constant high-pitched hum. Icon seems to be reading it.
Icon
Unless the river returns to normal ithin 48 hours 68.2% of all our dinosaurs will either, die of thirst, or be forced to find water elsewhere and 27% of our crops and fruit trees will be threatened.
Antor
from off Greetings Dino-Riders.
The Dino-Riders look up.
Questar
Antor!
The picture pans up to show Antor riding a Pterodactyl.
Antos
I bring you a message from lord Krulos.
Questar shakes his fist at Antor. The Pterodactyl starts circling the Dino-Riders.
Questar
You can tell Krulos, that this time he's gone to far!
Antor
laughs My orders only begone. You shall get no more water from the mountains. My lord Krulos has damned the river. You Dino-Riders will have to surrender to him. That is, if you want to live. laughs
Questar
I'm sorry, but it seems thanksgiving will have to wait.
Llahd
What difference does it make. With Krulos around we have nothing to be thankful for.
Llahd lowers his head and closes his eyes. Questar bends down and puts his hand on Llahd's shoulder.
Questar
For now Llahd. Only for now.
Questar straigthens. He turns to Vector and Questar put's his hand on Vectors shoulder.
Questar
Vector organize some dinosaurs to search for water. Check all plants and roots. They'll be a good source of liquid.
Vector leaves ans Gunnur takes his place.
Questar
Gunnur, you take another party of dinosaurs to dig erregation canals.
Gunnur gives Questar a thumbs up.
Gunnur
On my way, Questar.
Icon walks up next to Questar. He puts his arm around Questars shoulder.
Icon
Uh, Questar. While I admire your attempts to face the situation head on. According to my calculations: Even if we do manage to find a small amount of water in the jungle it won't be enough to save ourselves and the dinosaurs.
Questar
I understand, Icon, but Krulos hasn't beaten us yet. Erol! Yungstur! get airborne. I want detailed location reports on that damn.
Erol and Yungstur run to their waiting Quetzacoatl.
Yungstur
You got it!
Erol
We're outta here.
Immediately they're aireborne. Llahd steps out from the tree he has hidden behind. He boards his Pterodactyl.
Llahd
We're not gonna miss out on this one. They may need our help. Alright lets go!
The Quetzacoatl lifts of. We see it is not far behind Erol and Yungstur, who is in lead. The three Dino-Riders reach the damn and swoop over it.
Erol
Okay. We've seen enough Yungstur! Let's go back and make our report.
Yungstur points at Erol.
Yungstur
You can go if you want to Erol. I'm gonna get a closer look on those guardposts.
Yungstur grabs his AMP, which immidiately starts glowing. His Quetzacoatl dives to the right.
Erol
Yungstur! You're taking an unnecassary chance! And on top of that, we've got company.
We see Antor and three more Antmen on Pterodactyl.
Antor
Dino-Riders! Seize them!
Erol grabs his AMP.
Erol
Heads up, Yungstur. We've got Rulons on our tail.
Erol engages the 4 Rulons, by himself. A lone Rulon shot misses Yungstur by a mile.
Yungstur
So they wanna get serious. Come on fellow, let's show'em some fancy flying.
Yungstur gains altitude, but has the 4 Antmen on his tail. A little ways off, Llahd is seeing his friends peril. He grabs his AMP which starts to glow.
Llahd
Yungstur is in trouble. We've ot to do something.
It seems Llahd has trouble controlling his Pterodactyl.
Llahd
screams
He accidentaly rams Yungsturs Quetzacoatl, sending both dinosaurs tumbling down. The dinosaurs catch their fall, but their riders still drop to the ground. The Dino-Riders walk out of the fern, they landed in and are immediately surrounded by Antmen, pointing laser-rifles at them.
Llahd
panting Oh, Oh;
06:48 Llahd and Yungstur are still standing in the underbrushes surrounded by Antmen. Erol flies overhead. The damn. Heavily guarded by Rulons. A Triceratops is pulling the bound Llahd and Yungstur behind them.
Krulons
Welcome Dino-Riders. You are the first to arrive.
An Antmen cuts the prisoners free of the Triceratops.
Krulons
But soon your friends will be joining you.
Llahd
angry You bet they will and you'll be sorry.
Llahd gets up and walks to Krulos. Krulos bends down to look the kid in the face. Krulos' glasbowl-helmet and Llahd nose almost touch.
Krulos
I'll be al powerfull, once I have Questar as my slave.
Krulos straightens.
Krulos
laughs Then all Dino-Riders will answer to me! [locks eyes with Llahd] And I will take great pleasure in destroying you one by one!
07:30 Erol lands in front of a waiting Questar and Bomber. He jumps of his Quetzacoatl.
Erol
Krulos has Llahd and Yungstur!
Bomber turns and starts walking away.
Erol
Pants We need to move!
Questar
Llahd? Indignant
Erol
I'm sorry Questar. He must've followed us.
Rock and Glide walk up to the two.
Questar
Alright, that does it. We'll take a team and we'll meet Krulos head on. After we rescue Llahd and Yungstur, we're gonna blow that damn sky high.
Rock
Take me, Questar. Mountains are my specialty.
Glide
I'll give you aerial backup.
Questar turns to them, and takes their hands in his.
Questar
Rock. Glide. You're on. Now we need somebody who knows his way around a blasting cap.
Bomber walks in with a box on his shoulders.
Bomber
Packed and ready to roll Questar.
Questar
Excellent. Now some Struthiomimus for mountain traveling and we're all set.
08:07 High up on some mountain. We se the Dino-Riders on their Struthiomimus travelling along a mountain trail. Rock and Glide are sharing a Struthiomimus.
Glide
Are you sure these Struthiomimus know their way around the mountains.
Rock
Relax. They're as comfortable here as you are in the air.
Some off Bomber's gear, which he had strapped to his saddle, comes loose.
Bomber
You go on ahead guys.I gotta rearrange this gear.
Bomber jumps off his Struthiomimus, to take care of it.
Glide
Look out Bomber!
Rock and Glide try to pass, but their Struthiomimus bumps into Bomber's, which in turn pushes Bomber of the mountain trail.
Bomber
Screams
Rock and Glide turn around.
Rock
Oh, Oh. Let's go!
The two jump of their Struthiomimus, and run to where Bomber fell off. They look down and see, that Bomber was able to hold on to a ledge.
Bomber
exerted Somebody! Give me a hand.
Rock, with Glides assistance, secures his rope and backpack on the mountain.
Rock
Hang on Bomber.
Rock starts to repel towards Bomber.
Rock
I'm on my way.
Rock reaches Bomber and hanging off of one hand reaches for Bomber.
Bomber
What took ya?
Bomber climbs on Rocks back.
Rock
Just waiting for you to say "Please".
08:50 Erol is airborne.
Erol
I hope I can spy out where they hold Yungstur and Llahd. Then I can tip off Questar's patrol.
We see the damn. Several Antmen are ordering Triceratops' as they fortifeit the damn. We now see Llahd and Yungstur sitting on the ground. They are suurounded by 6 Antmen riding fully armored Triceratops' . The lasercannons are trained at the two Dino-Riders.
Llahd
depressed I'm sorry I got us into this mess Yungstur. Some thanksgiving day, huh?
Yungstur
Hey, come on kid. No big deal. Questar will have us out of here, before you can say "Turkey and Dressing".
Llahd
That's why it doesn't feel like thanksgiving. No turkey, no dressing, no Valoria. I sure miss it Yungstur.
Yungstur
I miss it too, Llahd. I'll never forget our last thanksgiving on Valoria.
Llahd
I don't understand. How did we get kicked outta there anyway?
Yungstur
That was a pretty rugged time, Llahd. You were very young. You probably don't remember what happened.
09
31 Begin Flashback. Yungstur does a voice over.
A mountain range. A blue moon hangs over it in the sky.
Yungstur
Valoria was the most beautiful planet in the universe.
Picture changes to show Valorian structure #1.
Yungstur
Because our civilisation has lived in peace for twentythousand years we were able to spend our time to develop art and science. Life was a blast!
Valorian Structure #2. A jet flies through the picture and a motorcycle can be seen driving through. A group of 4 is sitting further back chatting. In front a couple is having a picknick. Of to the side two couples are sharing their picknick. A man is standing around looking up. Another man is taking care of a bunch of ballons. As the camera pans, we can see three kids running around playing with a ball. Crossing the bridge is another couple. The foreground picknick-couple and the kids are wearing t-shirts and shorts. Everyone else is wearing the same body-armor-type clothing most of the Dino-Riders wear.
Yungstur
There was plenty for everybody. No Valorian ever went hungry, or lacked for shelter.
The scene changes to space. Dozens of different Rulon attack Cruisers fly by.
Yungstur
But that day the Rulon armada entered the Valorian solar system, everything changed.
A blue planet is attacked by the Rulon armada. We see that it has two moons. A smaller blue one and a large brown one.
Yungstur
Their first attack destroyed a small scientific outpost at the edge of our solar system.
Space. Again we see the Rulon armada flying by. This time it is followed by the huge Dreadlock, Krulos flagship.
10:00 The Bridge of the Dreadlock. Antor walks in and salutes.
Antor
Resistance has been crushed lord Krulos.
We see Krulos in his captain's chair.
Krulos
Good, Antor. Send down the invasion force. Brainbox every survivor.
A small vessel leaves the Dreadlock. Planetside. Valorian Structure #3. Antor and three of his Antmen are present. One is taking a prisoner away. Another Antman is standoing guard. The other two are trying to brainbox another prisinor (Prisoner#1). Prisoner#1 is crouched down hugging his knees t himself.
Antor
Brainbox this snivelling Valorian, at once.
Prisoner#1 is an older man with grey hair and a beard. The brainbox is put onto him.
Antor
Now you will do, as you are commanded, Valorian! Stand up
Prisoner#1
spiteful Valorians, bow to no master.
10:24 The bridge of the Dreadlock. The viewsreen shows Antor and Prisoner#1. Rulon sits in his captain's chair. An unnamed Antman is maning one of the consoles.
Antor
Lord Krulos, the Valorians have proven unreceiptive to our brainboxes.
Krulos
No doubt, because they have the power of telepathy. But if we cannot enslave them we will destroy them!
10:39 Valorian Structure #4. Valorians are runnig up and down the stairs. They are either wearing a dark blue or light blue body-armor.
Yungstur
The Valorians now realized they had to gear up for war. Or face extinction.
Valorian Structure #5. A huge phaser cannon portrudes from the roof. Valorians are standing on its roof, they throw cans at the force field to test it.
Yungstur
Luckily alot of our scientific discoveries could be converted to military use
Space. Seems to be another view from the blue planet before. The Rulon armada is leaving its surface.
Yungstur
We were able to adapt an energy shield to stop the Rulon attack for a short time.
The same shot of the rulons attacking the planet as before, except this time the planet is surrounded by the red glow of the energy shield.
Yungstur
But everyone knew, the energy shield wouldn't stop the Rulons for a long time.
Inside of an observatory. 5 scientists are working. They seem sad. The scene changes to show the Valorian ship standing on a launch off platform.
Yungstur
During that time, scientists had been completing a 400 passenger ship, for space exploration. And Questar, the greatest leader on Valoria, ordered the ship to be completed immediately.
Questar is seen giving orders. He and Icon then run towards the ships bridge and stop before the S.T.E.P.
Yungstur
A part of the ship's equipment, was a new invention. The Space Time Energy Projector. You know the S.T.E.P.
The s.T.E.P. crystal is shown up close. The Crystal glows with colorful energy. The scene changes back to show the ship's bridge. Questar and Icon seem to be talking.
Yungstur
The heart of the S.T.E.P. is the sacred Valorian Star crystal. Whose special energy has always powered Valorian society.
Questar and Icon grab their AMPs.
Questar
telepathically, AMP glows If the S.T.E.P. works, it should send the ship not only through space, but through time as well.
Icon
telepathically, AMP glows Where no Rulon can follow.
Questar
Where we can begin life again.
11:37 Valorian ball room. Every seat is taken. A movie is playing on the huge viewscreen.
Yungstur
Things looked very bleak as we gathered for our last thanksgiving on Valoria.
Space. Again we see Valoria, surrounded by a red glow. We can also see the Valorian moons. The Rulons are still attacking the planet.
Yungstur
This was the day, that Krulos chose to launch his final, all out attack.
Close up of the energy shield. The Rulon Lasers are attacking it mercilessly. Smoke rises from the impacts. FInally the shield shatters. The sound of breaking glass can be heard.
Yungstur
The great shield was destroyed.
Valorian structure #6. The Rulon armada flyes above. The Valorian Ballroom. The movie is interrupted and Krulos appears on screen.
Krulos
Greetings Valorians. We now know you are resistant to our brainboxes. You are therefore useless to us. Prepare to die, each and everyone of you. Down to the last child.
The S.T.E.P. ship on its launch pad. The Rockets launch and the ship takes off. The bridge of the ship. Serena, Llahd, Turret, Yungstur, Gunnur and Questar are maning the stations.
Yungstur
The huge ship with 400 Valorians on board, was able to launch just in time.
Space. Some unknown planetoids can be seen. The S.T.E.P. ship flies through. The view changes to show the Rulon bridge. The Valorian ship is displayed on the viewscreen. Krulos, Poxx, Antor, Hammerhead, an unnamed antman and an unnamed sharkman are maning the bridge.
Yungstur
But Krulos was determined. He pursued us in his command ship, the Dreadlock.
We see Gunnur at his console. The Dreadlock is displayed on it.
Gunnur
Questar. The Rulons are right on our tail.
Questar
Turret. Activate the step.
Turret pulls the switch, but nothing happens. A powerdown noise can be heard.
Turret
The S.T.E.P. may not work. We're losing power.
Rulon bridge.
Krulos
surprised The Valorians must not escape. Lock on the tractor beam. Now!
space. The Dreadlock is in pursuit of the S.T.E.P. ship. A power build up is seen at the Rulon Sensor array. A blue beam shoot from it, encasing the S.T.E.P. ship.
Yungstur
Things looked very tough.
Valorian bridge.
Questar
Turret, the Rulon tractor beam is giving us a power surge. Try the S.T.E.P. again.
Turret pulls the switch repeatedly.
Yungstur
This time thanks to the additional power.
Space. We see both ships. The Valorians are still trapped by the tractor beam.
Yungstur
The S.T.E.P. had enough energy, to open a hole in the fabric of time and space.
A glowing portal opens in front of the Valorian ship. The Valorian ship enters.
Krulos
from off After them. Don't let them get away.
The Rulon ship also enters the portal. We see both ships leaving the portal. Both ships have trouble maneuvering.
Yungstur
Krulos and the Dreadlock were pulled through as well.
The View changes to show earth.
Yungstur
And both ships were deposited here, on prehistoric planet earth. 65 Billion years into the past.
End Flashback
13:24 Again we see Yungstur and Llahd sitting on the ground surrounded by six Antmen on their Triceratops'.
Llahd
Wow. I guess we'Re lucky to even be alive.
Yungstur
Yeah, and that should be enough reason for thanksgiving right?
Llahd
Yeah, if it weren't for Krulos, this could even be a great day.
Yungstur
Don't worry about Krulos. I think Questar can take care of him.
Llahd
You know, Yungstur. You reminded me of something else.
Yungstur
What's that Llahd?
Llahd
What it means to be a Dino-Rider.
13:48 Krulos and Poxx standing in the pavillon overseeing the damn.
Krulos
So Questar finally arrives.
Poxx
Lord Krulos, what if they reach my damn?
Krulos
They won't. yells Antor!
Antor is seeing running towards them on the damn below.
Antor
Yes, lord Krulos?
Krulos
Launch an all out defensive attack, at once!
Antor runs off.
Poxx
Brilliant, lord Krulos. If you can hold the Dino-Riders back. They'll soon be dropping everywhere from thirst.
Krulos
Yes nothing would please me more, than to have Questar crawl to me for a drop of water.
14:23 The mountain surrounding the damn. A squad of Antmen on Triceratops' is gathering on top.
Antor
Here is a thanksgiving present for you Dino-Riders.
The Rulon squad storms down the side of the mountain and attack Questar and his squad. (4 Struthiomimus are seen)
Questar
Spread out!
Rock looks up and sees Rulon Pterodactyl dropping bombs. In spite of the heavy fire their under, the Dino-Riders manage to keep moving.
Questar
Keep moving!
The Dino-Riders ride behind a boulder for cover. The boulder is quickly destroyed by the Rulons.
Antor
That must have got them. No one could have survived that.
Behind the smoking remains of the boulder, we see that the rulon fire has blasted a cave into the mountain side.
14:50
Antor
No one could have survived that.
The picture pans down to show the Dino-Riders sneaking into another cave, centimeters from the damn, right beneath the Pavillon Krulos and Poxx are in. Inside the cave, the Commandos are readying themselves preparing their gear.
Questar
lowers voice Okay Bomber, it's up to you to place the explosive charges on the damn.
Bomber
We better not blow it all at once. We might flood the valley.
Questar runs to the cave entrance and peeks outside.
Questar
How do you want to handle it?
Bomber walks up to Questar. Gear in hand.
Bomber
Well, I'll blow a small hole first. Let the whole thing drain slowly. Like a bathtub.
Questar
pleased Good. Then, when it's empty, we'll destroy the rest of it.
Bomber sneaks out of the cave. He's caring a small case with a line that runs back into the cave. He opens it to reveal plastic explosives.
15:20 Krulos is standing in the pavillon. Antor is standing behind him, with his head bowed.
Krulos
angry How could you let Questar escape?
Antor
Lord Krulos, it was an unfortunate...
Krulos
angry, turns to Antor Unfortunate? Unfortunate for you Antor. I'm giving you one more chance. Take the prisoners to the top of the main floodgate. Should Questar make any attempt to blow up the damn, he'll be blowing up his own people as well.
15:43 Back in the cave. Bomber is runs in.
Bomber
All set Questar. I'll blow the damn at your command.
15:46 Erol riding his Quetzacoatl, is spying out the damn.
Erol
What's that?
He bends over and squints to see better. A cage is on top of the damn. The cage seems to be made out of sticks and straw. Yungstur and Llahd are trapped within.
Erol
Yungstur and Llahd. I've got to warn Questar not to blow the damn.
Erol touches his AMP. Erol [telepathically to the Quetzacoatl, AMP glows] Down boy, fast!
15:58 Back in the cave. Bomber is ready to push the trigger.
Questar
All ready Bomber? Prepare to blow the damn. On my Command in 2, 3, ...
Questar's AMP starts glowing
Erol
telepathically from off Stop Questar.
Questar
Stop Bomber.
Questar stops Bomber just in time. Erol runs in.
Erol
pants You, You can't blow the damn. Krulos has Yungstur and Llahd. They're beeing held prisoner in a cage at the top of the floodgates.
Bomber let's go off the trigger and wipes his forehead.
Bomber
Phew. That was awful close.
Bomber stands up.
Bomber
Okay, now what do we do?
Questar
First, we've got to rescue Yungstur and Llahd.
Glide kneels down and uses a stick to draw on the ground.
Glide
I have a plan. If we could create a major distraction of some kind. I could get above of the damn and glide down to the floodgates, open that cage and free Yungstur and Llahd.
Questar bends down and takes the stick from Glide and proceeds to poke the ground.
Questar
Very good. And I know just what that distraction should be.
16:42 Questar is kneeling behind a boulder. A Rulon patrol (3 Antmen with Ankylosaurs) walk up to his hiding place.
Antmen #1
Stop Dino-Rider. Or you will die on the spot.
Questar straightens and raises his hands.
Questar
I ... I was a fool to think you wouldn't catch me.
--- 16
53
Pavillon on top of the damn with Krulos and Poxx in it. A small table with glasses and a pitcher of water is set up. Questar is escorted there, by three Antmen.
Krulos
So the mighty Questar is captured by a lowly patrol.
Questar
I ... I must be slipping.
Krulos goes to the small table and pours a glass of water.
Krulos
Maybe, you were just a little thirsty?
Questar
No thanks, Krulos. We accept nothing from Rulons.
Krulos throws the pitcher and the glass down.
Krulos
upsetAntor bring me the Saurolophus.
A brainboxed Dinosaur walks in escorted by Antor and more of his men.
Krulos
Meet your executioner. Saurolophus.
17:24 Glide is standing at the lip of a cliff overseeing the damn. He's wearing a bright red hard shelled backpack and bellypack.
Glide
Beautiful day, for a bit of gliding. Groan [Moan]
Glide pushes a button on his bellypack and Wings fold out from his backpack.
Glide
Groan Everything secured and ready.
Glide pushes off the cliff.
Glide
I'm off.
Glide low-glides over the damn and the cage, which holds Yungstur and Llahd. The patrol (2 Antmen on one Ankylosaur), does not notice him. He lands a few meters behind the cage. He detaches the glider.
Glide
Pants Guys. Just thought I'd drop in to say hello.
Llahd
Glide.
Glide holds his finger to his lips signalling them to be quiet.
Yungstur
Boy are you a sight for sore eyes.
Nearby a rock opens to reveal 2 Antmen on Ankylosaurs. Immediately the Rulons attack.
Glide
All three of us on one glider, i's gonna be ...
Glide shoots a small energy beam from his belly-pack, which destroys the bars of the cage. The Rulons hit the glider, which explodes. Enough of the cage-bars are broken, for the prisoners to slip through. The three of the start running, to the edge of the damn.
Glide
Well, that solves that problem. How do you feel about swimming?
Three more Antmen, without dinosaurs, are approaching from the other side rifles blazing. We see it's a 30 foot drop to the water.
Yungstur
Is there another choice?
Glide
Sorry, this could've worked out better.
Erol
from off Heads up guys. Erol's flying limousine, at your door.
Two Quetzacoatl fly into the picture. The one that Erol rides low-flies over the water and holds position next to the three other Dino-Riders. Glide throws Llahd onto the Quetzacoatl.
Erol
All aboard.
Llahd
excited Yahoo!
Yungstur touches his AMP and motions for the other Quetzacoatl to come close.
Yungstur
telepathically, AMP glows Quetzacoatl get here boy.
The Quetzacoatl flys down into position next to Yungstur. Yungstur and Glide jump aboard.
Yungstur
On board everyone. let's get out of here.
The Quetzacoatl take off.
18:22 Pavillon on top of the damn. Questar is still held prisoner. The Saurolophus is led closer. (Krulos, Questar, Antor and 6 Antmen are present.)
Krulos
To be you won't be around, to see your people bowing to me as their supreme leader.
Questar
No way, Krulos. They'd rather die first.
Krulos
That, too, can be arranged Dino-Rider. Antor unleash the Saurolophus.
The two Quetzacoatl, carrying Llahd, Glide, Erol and Yungstur, fly by and shoot the brainbox of the Saurolophus. It immediatly turns on its former captivators.
Krulos
to Questar You are still my prisoner and your people will bow before me or die of thirst.
Questar
Not this time, Krulos. Your evil plan has come to an end.
Questar grabs his AMP.
Questar
telepathically, AMP glows Now, Rock!
19:03 In the cave where Bomber and Rock are hiding. Rock has his hand around his glowing AMP. Bomber has his hands firmly on the trigger for the explosives.
Rock
It's time.
Bomber pushes the trigger. The damn explodes and water floods into the riverbed.
Krulos
You may think you have stopped me, but you have just executed your own men.
Yungstur
from off Sory to dissapoint you, Krulos.
Yungstur and his Quetzacoatl fly in. The Quetzacoatl grabs Krulos and starts gaining altitude.
Krulos
screams No. No.
Antor
Antmen, attack!
The Antmen and their Ankylosaurs shoot at Erols Quetzacoatl. It dives towards them driving the off. Erol then shoots the pavillon, which explodes. The Antmen all flee. Krulos, still held by the Quetzacoatl, which Yungstur and Glide are riding.
Krulos
Put me down, Dino-Rider.
Yungstur
Whatever you say, Krulos.
Yungstur drops Krulos in the river.
Krulos
gasping for air You'll pay for this, Questar.
Krulos manages to hold on to a rock.
Krulos
I ... I promise.
Krulos slips off the rock, and gets dragged along the currents.
Questar
Time to go home.
The Quetzacoatl, caryying Llahd and Erol flies in and grabs Questar.
Llahd
Time for that.
20:02 Outside the Valorian base. The streams is filled again. Two Dino-Riders are fetching water from it. The rest of the Dino-Riders is sitting around a huge table underneath a pavillon.
Llahd
Questar, can I make the thanksgiving toast?
Questar
By all means, Llahd.
Llahd
At first, I wasn't sure we had anything to be thankful for, but then I realizeed we had everything, that was truely important right here. A beauutiful place to live, all the food we can eat, dinosaurs! And we have each other.
Questar
I couldn't have said it better myself, Llahd. Happy thanksgiving, Dino-Riders.
The Dino-Riders echo Questars sentiment.
Valorian Structure #1
Huge building or city. It seems, that all buildings are part of a huge central building. Jungle plants grow freely inbetween. Except for the copper-colored dome roofs, the structure seems classicism. [[ImageAligned(EP09_ValorianStructure_01.png)]]
Valorian Structure #2
Picture changes to show what seems like a park. Buildings are seen in the background. They follow the same design rules, as the building before, except these have a technical feeling to them. There is a small bridge to the right. [[ImageAligned(EP09_ValorianStructure_02.png)]]
Valorian Structure #3
Lots of plant life, the building itself is shaped like two domes set on top of each other (like a mushroom). The building seems to be constructed from panels (like a spaceship). Alcoven are inset to break the surface.
Valorian Structure #4
These buildings seem to reside in structure #1. A broad staircase leads around one of the towerlike buildings.
Valorian Structure #5
Seems to be the same kind of building as Valorian Structure #3 is. Except that the two domes now resemble a snowman instead of a mushroom.
Valorian ball room
A Huge room with orange-golden walls and a purple roof. on the far said green doors can be seen. The left wall is one huge view screen, framed by pink curtains. The floor is packed with tables for a banquet.
Valorian Structure #6
A street with apartement buildings and towers, on both sides. These buildings have a very functional look to them and are made out of a creamy white material. They don't seem to fit in with the previous structures. Mountains can be seen in the background.
