Jungle near a crash site.
1 viper, Gunnur
A clearing deep in the jungle. Spaceship parts are scattered around. A viper riding a triceratops barges through. He seems afraid of someone following him. He stops and is immediatly attacked. Phaser fire urges him to move on. Gunnur riding a dimetrodon is pursuing and firing at him.
Gunnur
Shakes fist. You'll get worse than that next time. Touches AMP, which glows. speaks none telepathically to the dimetrodon. Take care of those Rulon creeps for a while. 
A dinosaurian grunt catches Gunnur's and the dimetrodon's attention.
Gunnur
Let's head back to base. 
 
09:58
Cliff outside of Dino-Rider Camp
Krulos, eleven Rulons
Krulos
raises fists. I'll be back Dino-Riders. And I'll keep coming back until I ground you into the earth! 
 
01:08
Dino-Rider Camp
3 Dino-Riders, Icon, Mind-Zei
The Dino-Rider camp has sustained heavy damage. Buildings were destroyed, towers toppled and some construction were burned down. Three Dino-Riders are busy putting out the fires. They have a microwave sized box, which their hoses are connected to. Icon and Mind-Zei stand clear of the fires and greet the returning Questar (stegosaurus) and Serena (dimetrodon). Questar and Serena dismount.
Questar
Well we beat them; this time. 
Serena
sadYes but at what a price, Questar? It'll take weeks to repair this damage. 
Mind-Zei
comfortingputs hand on Serena's shoulderEven in victory our losses are great, Serena. 
Icon
Sir, Krulos has the advantage. If he continues to make us fight a defensive battle, eventually he may be strong enough to overwhelm our defenses and seize the S.T.E.P. crystal. 
Questar
I know, Icon. That is why we must hope that Astra and the Commandos succeed in their mission. 
 
01:45
Jungle
Astra, Kameelian, Rok, Glyde, Faze, Bomba
Kameelian (deinonychus) passes slowly through the jungle. He seems to be looking for something. Toppled trees can be seen laying around.
Kameelian
It's been through here. 
Along the path Kameelian is looking into more toppled over trees can be seen. Astra (deinonychus) nears.
Kameelian
Astra, you hardly need me to track this bloozer.Urges his deinonychus along the path. Looks over shoulder at Astra, who follows. You can follow this trail blindfolded, on a moonless night,... Yells in surprise.  
Kameelian's deinonychus has fallen into a four foot deep trench filled with mud. The other commandos laugh at Kameelian's mishap. Except for Glide, they are all riding deinonychus'. Glide is riding a protoceratops.
Rock
cheeklyYou're not tracking for us, Kammelian; You're running interference. In some brontosaurus footprint. 
Kameelian
disbelieveGets upNo! Really? Hurridly mounts his deinonychus.  
Astra
It's exactly as Yungstur described it. This baby we're looking is one big dinosaur. 
Glide
Seriously, Astra, I could follow this trail from the air. Why am I slugging through this jungle instead of Voice gets dreamy. Arms spreadsoaring on the breeze. 
Astra
annoyedBecause, Glide, we can't take a chance on the Rulons spotting us. Questar has classified this mission strictly top secret. Alright lets move out. 
 
02:41
Jungle
Astra, Kameelian, Rok, Glyde, Faze, Bomba
The Commandos still riding their dinosaurs follow the trail. Faze is being bothered by a large dragonfly.
Faze
I'm glad this is important. I hate to think we're out here for nothin'. 
Astra
Let me put it this way. If the Rulons get to the brontosaurus before we do it may seriously tip the balance of forces against us. 
Faze
A hundred tons of brontosaurus wearing a Rulon brainbox. That's really heavy. 
 
03:04
Dino-Rider Camp
two Dino-Riders, 1 sharkman.
The Dino-Rider have cleared the debris and are working on rebuilding the camp. A Dino-Rider oversees two triceratops rolling a huge tree trunk. Another waits for a styracosaurus. Behind rocks a sharkman sneaks towards the command center. He holds a hand sized electronic device. He reaches the door to the command center, which is open. He sneaks in and places the device underneath a computer console after activating it. He hears Dino-Riders approaching.
Turret
from offThe armor plans are ready for your approval, sir. 
The intruder leaves through the back door. Turret, Gunnur, Questar, Mind-Zei and Icon enter through the front door.
Questar
That was quick work, Turret. Let's call them up on the screen. 
Turret goes to the console the device was planted on and calls up the plans.
Turret
We have several options for arming the brontosaurus, sir. 
A schematic of the brontosaurus appears on screen. It is overlayed by several several armor designs.
Questar
Hm. Good work. Aha. Very effective. Well done, Turret. 
Icon
ImpressedQuite a scientific breakthrough. Lifts his staff as it starts computing. It crackles with built up energy. With the brontosaurus in our ranks we'll have greatly increased tactical flexibility in battly. 
Gunnur
Ha. Icon you sure got a way with words. All I know is that baby packing thse weapons can knock a lot of Rulons out of their saddles. Might just make Krulos decide to go into a different line of work. 
Questar
Turret, you really outdone yourself. Shakes hands with Turret.The plans are superb. 
Mind-Zei
Comrades I beg you: don't celebrate the victory to soon. Remember we have onlya found tracks of the creature. None among us has ever seen the great brontosaurus. 
Turret
That's true, Mind-Zei. Maybe we better not start construction weapons until we have it. 
Questar
Negative. I want you to begin immediatly. When the brontosaurus arrives I want to be ready to use him. Our very survival may depend on it. 
Underneat the console the Rulon device is working.
 
04:26
Lake next to Jungle
Astra, Kameelian, Rok, Glyde, Faze, Bomba, Hammerhead, 2 vipers, 3 sharkmen, 2 antmen, 1 mantaman
Kameelian is refilling everybodys canteens from a lake.
Kameelian
grouchyRefilling canteens. Ha. I get all the glamour jobs. Im the naturalist, the expert on wildlife. And where does it get me? Filling canteens that's what. 
The calm surface of the water starts to ripple. Waves run against the shore. They are increasing in size. Suddenly the water draws back and a three feet high wave hits Kameelian. He is washed away, further inland.
Kammelian
coughsWhat in the...?Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Astra! Commandos! You better get down here. I found our brontosaurus. 
A huge brontosaurus (about 45 feet at the shoulder) now stands in the lake and drinks. It seems to be in a foul mood. The othe Commandos arrive.
Astra
awedPhenomenal creature. 
Bomba
Yeah, that's what I call big. 
Glide
If I weren't seeing this I would never believe it. 
The brontosaurus splashes his tail. The movement creates another 15 feet high wave, that is headed for the Commandos. The Commandos run, but are hit anyway. shouts of surprise are heard. The water pulls back and the Commandos cough and try to stand. The brontosaurus leaves the water and feeds on some ferns. Laser fire rains down on it.
Astra
surprisedWhat was that? 
Hammerhead appears. He is riding a monoclonius. He is followed by 2 vipers and three sharkmen on triceratops', two antmen on monocloni and a mantaman on saurolophus.
Hammerhead
Quickly! Quickly, you idiots. If you loose this beast you will have Krulos's anger to deal with and men. 
The brontosaurus is obviously vexed about the attack. It walks infront of the Rulons to challenge them. The Rulon fire rockets. The rockets pull cable behind them that wrap around the dinosaurs neck, tail and feet.
Astra
The Rulons. They've been after him all along. 
The brontosaurus roars as it fights the cables.
 
06:02
Lake next to Jungle
Astra, Kameelian, Rok, Glyde, Faze, Bomba, 2 vipers, 5 sharkmen
The Rulons have successfully bound the brontosaurus and pulled him down so it lays flat on the ground. The monocloni of five sharmen and two vipers are still working hard to keep the brontosaurus that way. The Commandos have not been spotted, yet. Astra is on the lookout while Faze prepares his rocketlauncher, Bomba his grenades and Glide his Glider.
Bomba
I've got a few fireworks I'd like to show those Rulons. Holds up grenades demonstratively.  
Astra
stops lookout. Hold off until the time is right, Bomba. Lays hand on Bomba's shoulder. We're going to need a backup. 
 
06:22
Dino-Rider command center
Questar, Turret, Vector
Turret and Vector are busy welding plating together. Questar is watching them.
Turret
This mobile base system for the S.T.E.P. will fit nicely into the brontosaurus command centre.  
All of their AMPs start to glow. Astra is heard.
Astra
from off, through Questar's AMPQuestar, the secret is out. The Rulons are after the brontosaurus. We'll do what we can but we need a backup 
Questar
does not touch AMP, telepathicallyAstra, don't let the brontosaurus fall into enemy hands. Backup is on the way. telepathically to allBattle alert. Fast attack dinosaurs. Fast alert dinosaurs only. 
Outside a construction crew hear the call. The 4 Dino-Riders (2 male and 2 female) and a triceratops, a torosaurus and a smaller sauropod drop everything and hurry to armor up.
Questar
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Speed is critical! 
Turret
We're coming with you, Questar. 
Questar
Thanks, but I want you to stay here and complete this project. It looks like we're gonna need it. 
Questar leaves. Turret and Vector continue their work. The Rulon device attached to one of the console still transmits.
 
06:57
Lake near the Jungle
Hammerhead, 13 Rulons (contains: 2 vipers, 1 antman), 6 Antmen, Skate, Rock, Glide
10 Monocloni and three triceratops, ridden by Rulons, are pulling the cables, that hold the brontosaurus, tight.
Hammerhead
impatient Get that brainbox on him. 
6 Antmen carry a brainbox towards the beasts head. They are about to put it on as the unwilling dinsoaur violently shakes its head. The movement hurled the brainbox away and frightened the antmen. The dinosaur continues to shake his head and neck. The triceratops pulling the cable holding the neck is pulled on his back and towards the brontosaurus. The antmen riding the triceratops flees before he can be crushed.
Hammerhead
angerYou're loosing him. You idiots. 
The viper (triceratops) on the other side of the neck increases his pull on the cable holding the neck. But the brontosaurus is stronger, with one movement of his neck the triceratops is pulled towards it. The triceratops is forced to barrel roll and lands on his feet. The viper flees, before he could be crushed. A nearby rock is the camouflaged Commando Rock.
Rock
Touches his breast. AMP is hidden by rock-suit. Telepathically. They didn't figure this big guy had that much fight in him. 
Glide hides in a nearby tree.
Glide
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically. I think he feels the same way about Rulons, than we do. 
The brontosaurus pulls another dinosaur (a monoclonius ridden by a viper) of its feet. The brontosaurus neck is now freed completely. It puts down his left front paw and tries to stand.
Hammerhead
panickedstands in his saddle.More cables, you incompetence. surpressed angry growl  
The brontosaurus's tail swings around and hits Hammerhead, who falls of his dinosaur.
Hammerhead
angerimpotent growls  
Skate runs up to him.
Skate
Hammerhead! 
Hammerhead
angerShut up! Ready the tranquilizer harpoon. We'll put the brontosaurus to sleep. 
 
worriedBut ... But Hammerhead! The tranquilizer may kill it. 
Hammerhead
angerGrabs skate by the collar and lifts him above his head. What do you think Krulos will do to us if we return without the brontosaurus? Duh.Puts Skate back down. I rather take my chances with the dinosaurs life. 
 
08:10
Faze, Astra
Lake near Jungle, where Rulons are trying to capture the brontosaurus
Faze has prepared his rocket launcher and is squating infront of it. Bomba stands next to him. Astra is watching the Rulons.
Faze
How about jumpin' in with a few ground to ground missiles.    
Astra
Good the brontosaurus has evened up the odds. We'll show our appreciation. Just aim carefully. 
 
08:18
Lake near Jungle, where Rulons are trying to capture the brontosaurus
17 antmen, 2 vipers, Antman#1, Hammerhead, Faze
Antman#1 and another antman are leading an ankylosaurus, which is equipped with a crossbow, towards the brontosaurus. They stop next to Skate and Hammerhead (monoclonius) and load the tranquilizer harpoon.
Antman#1
The tranquilizer harpoon, sir. 
Hammerhead
There. Fire it! Fire it! 
Faze is still squating by his rocket launcher.
Faze
That's my cue.Launches rocket.  
The rocket destroys the crossbow and the tranquilizer harpoon. Bomba uses the diversion and throws grenades at a group of five antmen (one rides a monoclonius). They panick and flee. Rock and Glide use the confusion to get to the brontosaurus. Glide glides onto the brontosaurus' back. Rock runs up to the brontosaurus and shoots a grappling hook from his backpack that flies over the dinosaur and claws into some boulders. Astra runs up to Rock and grabs onto him. The rope attached to the grappling hook is coiled back up by rocks backpack and pulls the two Commandos up onto the brontosaurus' back. Glide and Rock hunch down and fire at the cables. While Astra runs up to the dinosaurs shoulders. The brontosaurus does not like the aliens on his back.
Astra
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically. We are friends, old fella. We'll help you escape. I'll give you the signal be ready to go. 
Astra shoots the cables holding the dinosaurs upper body. Two monocloni, ridden by antmen, fall forward as the tension of the cables disappears. Meanwhile Kameelian and Bomba have gotten the Commandos deinonychus'.
Kameelian
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Astra, over here. We've got you covered. 
Bomba and Kameelian lay down defensive fire. Vipers and antmen are fleeing from the freed brontosaurus.
Astra
Move it! 
The brontosaurus stands up and moves forward. Rulons are tossed around by its swishing tail. Hammerhead jumps onto a boulder to give orders. His men gather around him.
Hammerhead
After them! We must not return to Dreadlock without the brontosaurus. 
 
09:15
stone waste
Questar, Gunnur, Yungstur, Serena, 11 Dino-Riders, Astra, Kameelian, Rok, Glyde, Faze, Bomba
Questar (deinonychus) and Gunnur (deinonychus) are leading a group of 11 Dino-Riders (9 deinonychus' and 2 protoceratops'). Yungstur and Serena (quetzacoatlus') are following from the air.
Gunnur
Telepathic transmissions indicate we should intercept the Commandos soon.    
A dinosaurian cry from above alerts them. Serena and Yungstur are diving towards them.
Serena
Questar, we can see it; Over there! 
Yungstur
thrilledYeah, it's right ahead of you.   
The head and neck of the brontosaurus appear beind a hill in the distance.
Questar
Good work you two. We'll follow through on the ground. 
The brontosaurus is approaching fast. Soon the Commandos can be made out on its back.
Astra
Hello, Questar. 
Questar
Astra! You're alright? 
Astra
Hah! Never better.Glides down a rope to stand infront of Questar.And we delivered the brontosaurus.salutes  
Gunnur and Questar dismount. Unoccupied deinonychus' are brought forward for the Commandos.
Questar
Well done! He's magnificent.Shakes Astra's hand.  
Astra
There's a Rulon raiding party hard on our heels. I know that wasn't part of our assignment but... 
Questar
I want your commando team to set up a rear guard to delay the Rulons. 
Astra
salutesCan do, Questar. Hit and run tactics are our style.Mounts a deinonychus.Commandos follow me. 
The other Commandos have meanwhile also dismounted the brontosaurus and mounted a deinonychus. They ride in the direction they came from. Questar waves them goodbye.
 
10:06
edge of stony desert
Hammerhead, 3 sharkmen, 1 viper, 1 antman, Skate, Kameelian, Astra, Bomba
A group of two sharkmen (monoclonius, triceratops and a deinonychus), a viper (triceratops), an antman (triceratops) and Skate (monoclonius), lead by Hammerhead (monoclonius) is following the brontosuaurus. They are still at the edge of the stony desert. Dead trees and dry bushes mark its beginning.
Hammerhead
angryFaster you fools! We must not loose the brontosaurus. 
Kameelian is hiding in one of the dead trees.
Kameelian
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Astra, the Rulons are comming your way. 
Bomnba and Astra have ducked behind a tree. Bomba is preparing explosives.
Astra
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Thank you, Kameelian. We got a big surprise for them.Lets go of AMP and turns to Bomba.How about it, Bomba. Ready to stir things up a bit? 
Bomba
Just need a couple more seconds, sir.Adjusts cap on a grenade  
The Rulon party approaches a group of green trees. Bomba throws a grenade behind the trees. The explosion fells to of the trees and block the way of the Rulons.
Skate
panicksIt's a Dino-Rider trap! Hold on! 
The Rulons try to stop their beasts before they crash into the obstacle. The sudden stop catapults some of the Rulons out of their saddle. Others try to turn their mounts around but they crash into the others. Skate jumps back into the saddle of a monoclonius. Hammerhead jumps up onto the same monoclonius and pushes Skate of the beast.
Hammerhead
angerOut of my way. Stands on his saddleIt's those Commandos. Have they boobytrapped every inch of the trail between us and the brontosaurus? 
Skate
desperateClumsily tries to clmb onto another monoclonius.What do we do? 
Hammerhead
calmlaughsIf I know Questar he'll take the most difficult route back to his camp. And so will we.Still standing in his saddle, the monoclonius moves forward.Through those wads and be quick about it. 
 
11:07
edge of stony desert, hill overseeing the Rulons.
 
Astra is watching Hammerhead and his party through binoculars. Bomba stands behind him.
Astra
worried I'll be! Look like those Rulons are heading straight for Questar. 
Bomba
How do you think they knew how to take that route? 
Astra
Ooh, lucky guess, I suppose.Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Questar, afraid I can't buy you anymore time. They're on to us. 
 
11:20
In the midle of the stony desert. At the edge of a canyon.
Questar, Gunnur, Serena, 2 Dino-Riders
Questar has unmounteed and stepped to the edge of the canyon. Serena has also unmounted and takes care of her pteranodon. Gunnur and 2 other Dino-Riders have mounted a deinonychus each. There are also two unmanned triceratops, an unmanned deinonychus and a torosaurus (unclear if it is manned). The brontosaurus watches the Dino-Riders with interest.
Questar
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Thanks, Astra. We'll take it from here 
Serena
Walks up to QuestarWhat do you think, Questar. 
Questar is staring into the canyon, his hands on his hips.
Questar
Looks at SerenaWell, we can't outrun the Rulons and we don't dare risk a fight. They'd just direct their fire at the brontosaurus. We'll have to hide. 
Serena
confusedHide?! With him?points at brontosaurus  
Questar
Trust me. 
 
11:37
In the midle of the stony desert. At the edge of a canyon. Where the Dino-Riders had just been.
Hammerhead, Skate, an antman
The Rulons, each riding a monoclonius, urge their mounts through the desert at full sprint. They stop at the canyon, right infront of a pile of dead wood.
Skate
scaredout of breathThey're not here! Probably never were. 
Hammerhead pulls up to Skate.
Hamerhead
angry and impatient.What's the delay? Which way did they go? 
Skate
scaredThere's nothing here, Hammerhead. 
Hammerhead
angryYou mean, how can you loose the largest dinosaur on the face of the earth? In the middle of a flat plane?! 
Skate
terrifiedMaybe the Dino-riders were never here. Maybe you chose the wrong direction? 
Hammerhead
calmfolds hands.It's almost dark. We'll never find the Dino-Riders now. We might as well return to Dreadlock. 
Skate
releavedPhew.wipes sweat from forehead.  
Hammerhead
So I can tell Krulos it is your fault that we lost the brontosaurus. To Dreadlock! 
The Rulons turn their mounts around and slowly head home.
 
12:25
In the midle of the stony desert. At the bottom of the canyon. A river flows there.
Gunnur, Serena, Questar, Tagg, Yungstur
Questar is watching the desert and can see the Rulon force of atleast 13 dinosaurs leave leave.
Questar
They're gone. Alright let's get back to camp. Fast. 
Gunnur and Tagg run to clear away the pile of dead wood, revealing the brontosaurus' head.
Gunnur
You heard what the boss said. 
Tagg
Come on, big fellow. Time to go home. 
We see that the brontosaurus' had been lying down in the river, conceiling its body. It stands up and easily steps out of the canyon, onto the desert floor.
Yungstur
AweWow those Rulons came a little to close this time. 
Questar
Not close enough. 
Serena and Yungstur look at each other. They are confused by Questar'S cryptic message. The Dino-Riders mount up and leave.
 
12:55
Dreadlock
Skate, Krulos, Hammerhead
Krulos is pacing infront of Hammerhead and Skate.
Hammerhead
It was all Skate's fault, lord Krulos. He lost the brontosaurus. 
Skate
terrifiedIt just wasn't there. 
Krulos
Stops pacing.angrySilence! You know how I detest hearing the details of failure. Now we must attack the Dino-Riders and seize the brontosaurus before they can outfit it for battle. Ready the troops. 
Hammerhead
As you wish, my lord. 
Krulos
And we'll begin my special operation. The one that will spell ultimate doom for the Dino-Riders and Questar. 
 
13:31
Dino-Rider command center
Questar
Questar can be seen studying plans. Underneath of his console the Rulon device starts blinking.
 
13:34
Outside of Dino-Rider camp. Brontosaurus trough.
Tagg, Turret, Questar, Ikon
TThe Dino-Riders have built a trough for the brontosaurus. 2 monocloni are carrying bags full of plant matter towards the trough. The brontosaurus waits expectantly. Tagg stands on a plattform that is almost as high as the trough. He is operating a pully to unload the plant matter into the trough. Questar, Ikon and Turret stand nearby and watch Tagg work.
Tagg
Uses pully to unload another load of plant matter. Grunts  
Turret
ImpressedBoy, that's what I call an appetite. 
Ikon
Yes, I calculate the brontosaurus will require 967 pounds of food each day. 
Turret
discontentThat'll keep us busy in more ways than one. 
Questar
I assume you're talking about the command centre for our big friend here? 
Turret
nodsCome on. Take a look.leaves  
 
14:01
Dino-Rider camp. Construction site of the brontosaurus command centre.
Turret, Questar, Gunnur, three Dino-Riders
A 33 meter highg scaffolding surrounds the brontosaurus command centre which is almost as high. the brontosaurus command centre is hidden by linen. Questar and Turret step under the linen. A Monoclonius walks by.
Questar
Seems nearly completed. 
Turret
Well there are a lot of finishing operations still to be done. 
They've stopped infront of a winch. A rope runs upwards from it. The other end is attached to a claw-hook. Questar stands between the claws and holds on to them.
Turret
Have a seat.activates winch and stands back.I'll show you what we've got. 
The winch lifts Questar to the entrance of the brontosaurus command center. Turret uses another winch to follow. In the background a Dino-rider can be seen welding. Inside the bridge of the brontosaurus command center two Dino-riders are busy working the controls.
Questar
Impressive. 
Turret
That's not the half of it. This'll be our home away from home. A mobile command center. Everything we need is right at our finger tips. Pop open radar, computer consoles, firing stations,... 
Questar
You didin't have trouble getting this material? 
Turret
Noo we're still salvaging stellar grade plastishield plate from the ship. It'll be 70 million years or so until we see more from where that came from.excitedOh, oh. I want you to take a look at this.Runs to one of the computer consoles and activates a lever.This is a pet project of mine. 
Questar and Turret make their way to the top of the command centre. They each open a hatch. A huge weapon is attached to the end of an arm. Questar seems overwhelmed.
Turret
Points at the weapon.An experimental particle beam weapon. Once I've worked out its power impulse generator, it ought to keep Krulos at a healthy distance.What do you think. 
Questar
calmpats Turret on the shoulder. Some excellent design work here, Turret. Excellent.  
They close the hatches and return to the bridge of the brontosaurus command center. Questar walks to the S.T.E.P.
Questar
And this is what its really all about. The S.T.E.P. At last we have a movable defense system for the S.T.E.P. You know this will give us a whole new tactical strategy. 
Questar's AMP starts to glow.
Gunnur
TelepathicallyQuestar! Questar! Emergency! 
 
15:07
Dino-Rider camp. Defense perimeter.
Gunnur, 4 antmen, 4 sharkmen
Gunnur is on a watchtower overlooking the outer wall. He's peering through a pair of binoculars.
Gunnur
AMP glows. telepathicallyWe are under attack. 
Gunnur is in a hurry to get of the tower. He throws himself on the ground as it is hit by blazer fire and explodes.
Gunnur
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.In a big way. 
A Rulon unit of 5 deinonychus (4 antmen and 1 sharkman) and 3 monocloni (3 sharkmen) have secured a hill overlooking the Dino-Rider camp. They are using their superior position to attack.
 
15:17
Brontosaurus command center
Questar, Turret
Questar
You and your men stay here and keep working. We'll hold off the Rulons as long as we can. Runs out.  
 
15:23
Outside off the Dino-Riders defense perimeter.
Hammerhead, Mind-Zei, seven Dino-Riders, Yungsutr, Gunnur, four antmen, a viper, three sharkmen, Krulos
A fully equipped brachiosaurus - with Mind-Zei operating the rocket launchers and at least another Dino-Rider -, two torosaurs - Gunnur is in one of them - , three Deinonychus with riders, and two styracosaurs stand outside the defense perimeter to fight off the Rulons. The Rulons attack with at least two Monocloni (a sharkman and a viper) and an ankylosaur on ground level. Three more monocloni (2 sharkmen and an antman) fire from their higher vantage point. Krulos and the tyrannosaurus rex are also there, but do not attack. In the air, Yungstur and another Dino-Rider on quetzacotlus' are fighting of three antmen on pteranodons. Both sides attack full out. Questar riding his deinonychus hurries to his men.
Questar
yellsWhat is the status? 
Gunnur
Not good, Questar. 
Questar
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Yungstur what does it look like from up there? 
On the ground the Rulon troops slowly force the Dino-Riders backwards. The ankylosaur fires a rocket at Yungstur. It misses Yungstur but penetrates his seat. He looses balance and falls
Yungsutr
panicscreams  
The other Dino-Rider flyer is able to catch him before he hits the ground. The Rulons have pushed the Dino-Riders back far enough to directly attack the outer wall. Two Dino-Riders on pachycephalosaurs wait for them to break through.
Krulos
Surrender, Dino-Riders! My warriors already outnumber yours. My brainbox army grows larger by the day and the brontosaurus will soon be mine. 
Questar
do the best you can, Gunnur.  
Gunnur
I'll try, Questar. 
Questar urges his deinonychus away from the front lines.
Gunnur
muttersI'll surely try. 
 
16:14
Inside the Dino-Rider camp.
Serena, Questar
Serena is trying to calm down the brontosaurus.
Serena
SoothingTouches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Wo, boy. It'll be okay. 
Questar arrives on his deinonychus. He dismounts and stands next to Serena.
Serena
I'm trying to calm him, but he recognizes the Rulons. He wants to get at them. 
Questar
thoughtfulLooks at brontosaurusHmm. He's gonna get his chance.Runs toward the brontosaurus command center. Lets get aboard. 
 
16:29
Dino-Riders camp. construction site of the brontosaurus command center
Questar, Turret, Serena, five Dino-Rider
Questar and Serena riding the brontosaurus walk towards the veiled brontosaurus command center. The brontosaurus puts his head under the linen and walks in. Turret is watching from the bridge. Serena and Questar run in and man the helm.
Turret
fllusteredBut we're not ready. 
Questar
Looks Turret into the eyeTurret, it's now or never. 
Turret
Yes, sir. 
Outside a Dino-Rider pulls of the linen, which also removes the scaffolding. The brontosaurus in its new armor is revealed. The support beams holding up the command centre retract and all platforms fold in. Two Dino-riders secure the hatches. Two more Dino-Riders can be seen manning the rear hatch.
Questar
Turns to SerenaReady? 
Serena
Looks at QuestarReady. 
Turret
It's gonna take me another ten minutes at least.Turret is sorting out the wiring of one of the consoles.  
Questar
Works the controls.Keep working we got a couple of minutes before we're in the thick of it. 
Turret
disgruntledGives Questar a disgruntled "Really is that so?" look.  
The brontosaurus moves out.

a snakeman, Snakeman#1
Two snakemen on triceraops' near the brontosaurus.
Snakeman#1
frightenedWhat is that? 
The brontosaurus rears up on his hind legs and drops forward, performing an erathshattering stomp that throws both snakmen from their seats.
Snakeman#1
Ooh. Eh. Ow. 
The brontosaurus rears up again and aims for the snakemen.
Sbakeman#1
terifiedscreams and tries to run away  
The brontosaurus stomps again and misses the snakemen. Inside of the command center Turret is thrown around.
Turret
yellsAhh 
Turret hits the floor and stops the movement.
Turret
angryCan't finish the job when you're - ah - checking out the controls. 
Questar
Out of breath as if doing hard labourSorry, a little misunderstanding. Our big frind is a little anxious to show his strength. 
Serena
Out of breath as if doing hard labourYou better have a chat with him. 
Questar
Touches AMP, which glows and talks telepathically.Easy, boy. You just provide the transportation. We'll handle the Rulons. Watch! 
The platforms unfold and the weapons are deployed. The rear plattform opens fire. The firepower proves overwhelming for a unit of three antmen on two monocloni and a triceratops. They flee.
 
17:49
Dino-Riders camp. Outside the outer perimeter
Krulos, 2 Dino-Riders,
Krulos on his tyrannosaurus rex has seen the brontosaur's attacks.
Krulos
It may be big, but in sheer firepower nothing can match my tyrannosaurus rex. 
The tyranoosaurus rex moves to attack the brontosaurus. The brontosaur sees it coming and waits for the attack. The tyrannosaurus opens fire.
Krulos
Rulons! Fire everything you have. 
At least two triceratops (antmen) and two monocloni (sharkmen) join the attack. The brontosaurus just stands there, no countermeasures are taken. Two Din-Riders calmly sit in the rear plattform.

The brontosaurus command center
Turret, Questar
Turret watches the fight outside unfold.
Turret
It's working. So far the reactive armor I designed is absorbing the laser ammo. But I'm not sure how much more it can take. 
Questar
What about the main cannon?  
Turret
I don't have a power source for it yet.sudden intuitionJust wait.Runs towards the back of the command center  
Serena
worriedWe better think of something quick. 
Turret runs towards the S.T.E.P.
Turret
excitedworks the S.T.E.P. controlsIf I rechannel the energy the armor is absorbing and run it through the S.T.E.P. we may be able to power the main gun. 
Questar walks up behind him.
Questar
That's untested I can't risk destroying the S.T.E.P. 
Turret
annoyedI am sure it will work, Questar. All I have to do is throw the switch. 
Questar
Negative. I'm gonna call in our troops to take the heat off. At least for the moment. 
Questar returns to the helm.
 
18:46
Dino-Riders camp. Outside the defense perimeter
Krulos, Turret, Questar, Serena, three vipers
The Rulons are attacking the brontosaurus full force. No countermeasure have been taken, yet. The brontosaurus seems in pain.
Krulos
It can't last much longer. I'll know when the enemy has spent it's strike and that is when I go for the kill. 
Inside the brontosaurus command center, Questar, Turret and Serena are shaken through by the attack. Turret goes to one of the consoles.
Turret
whispers I have to do it flips a lever  
There is a energy build up in the S.T.E.P. Outside the command center, the main cannon aims and shoots at a group of three vipers on triceratops. The raised dust blocks the view. The vipers and their mounts scream in agonizing pain. They flee the battle field. One of the vipers ducks behind a rock, but it is immediatly destroyed by the main cannon. Systematically the cannon destroys every possible cover and geological advantages the Rulons have.
Krulos
yellsRulons! Fall back.increases volume and carefully pronounces every syllableQuestar has betrayed us.

Dino-Riders camp. Outside the defense perimeter
Gunnur, Tagg
The Rulon army turns and flees from the battle field. Gunnur and Tagg are watching the retreat from their Torosaurus.
Tagg
confusedQuestar, betrayed us? What's that supposed to mean. 
Gunnur
amusedHa, I guess it means the beatin' Krulos just took scrambled his brains. 
 
19:37
Dino-Riders camp. Outside the defense perimeter
Questar, Serena, Gunnur, Tagg, Turret, Ikon, Mind-Zei, Aries
The brontosaurus main cannon is retreated. Questar and Serena meet Tagg and Turret under the brontosaurus.
Gunnur
Doesn't look like you needed our help after all. 
Turret runs in.
Turret
exhilarated and contentWow wasn't that something. I don't know if we'll ever match the power surge we got out of the cannon that time. But while it lasted. 
Questar
crossTurret. You're lucky the S.T.E.P. wasn't damaged. That was an enormous chance you took with it. 
Turret
confusedI only did what I thought was right. 
Questar
angrygrabs Turret And it was wrong! You disobeyed a direct order. 
Gunnur
confusedYou didn't want him to use the cannon? Questar, that was the only thing that won this battle. 
Serena walks up to Questar.
Serena
confusedI've never seen you like this before. What's wrong? 
Ikon
This may explain it. We were running a battlefield report on the computer when it printed out this secret file.Gives Gunnur the report.It's atranscription of radio communication of all our battle plans, strategies and times of attack. 
Ikon, followed by Mind-Zei and Aries enter.
Gunnur
Looks at the reportSo? 
Ikon
angryStands infront of Questar and stares at him accusingly.It's from Questar's computer to Krulos. 
The Dino-Riders are baffled.
