LEAD GUNSTAR - REAR P.O.V.The launch complex of the Starfighter Command base shrinks in the distance and spins as the skillful pilot executes the maneuver.EXT. SPACEThe three Gunstars fly in formation through the dark void.
They approach a grid of a thousand green, moon-sized generators forming an invisible forcefield protecting the friendly space.
Four of the generators glow red as the Starfighters pass between them, then immediately turn green as they clear.
INT. LEAD GUNSTAR - ****PITA small blip appears on the navigator's Heads-Up Display.
EXT. SPACE - FRONTIERThe Gunstars fly wing-to-wing as they approach the source of the signature.
Three small spacecraft appear from the darkness and fire upon the Starfighters with lasers.
The Gunstars break formation and scramble, engaging the enemy fighter craft.Two of them are destroyed with deadly precision by the skilled Starfighters, but one remains. The final enemy fighter pulls out from the dogfight.
The lead Gunstar chases the enemy fighter. An unseen squadron of enemy spacecraft emerges from the darkness... 10... then 25... 100... 200!
Too late. They have been caught in crossfire by the surrounding fighters.Two of the Gunstars have been obliterated, but the final Starfighter attempts maneuvers around the laser fire in a desperate attempt to escape the clutches of the unknown aggressors.The attempt has failed as an IFF-guided missile hits the fuselage and destroys the spacecraft in a brilliant explosion.
INT. FRY'S APPARTMENT (BENDER'S CLOSET)- EARTH - DAY (MORNING)[BG music: Road of the Gypsy - Adrenalin]Fry sits on his bed, fixing his Walkman with a screwdriver.He brightens as he sees success from his maintenance and reaches for the stop-button on a boom-box on the floor, pulling out the tape and putting it in the Walkman.

It's about time I finally update...EXT. SPACE - THE FRONTIERThe DOOP starship Nimbus and several United Systems Administration ships approach the Frontier with caution.They quickly come to a hault.INT. BRIDGE - NIMBUSBecause of Zapp Brannigan's death in an earlier mission regarding the Xenomorph species, the great warship Nimbus is now under different command... LT. COMMANDER LIAM McARGUS.KIF checks the radar scope.
Kif walks up to the forward window/screen and opens the blinds.
Kif activates the beam.Four yellow lasers zap the Frontier's forcefield and slowly forms an opening, but too small for ships to pass through.
McArgus holds up a Taco Alarm burito.
Kif lets out another weary sigh.An alarm sounds, followed by a red warning light.
Kif turns a dial, tonning the alarm down, and pushes a button deactivating the red light.An image of a KO-DAN SPACE COMMANDER fades on to the window/screen.
Another alarm sounds.
EXT. SPACE - FRONTIERA squadron of Ko-Dan fighters approach the drifting DOOP and administration spacecraft and open fire.All of the administration ships are destroyed.The Nimbus attempts to pull out, but Ko-Dan fighters batter the ship with laser fire.INT. BRIDGE - NIMBUSMcArgus and Kif are rocked out of their seats.Kif crawls to a control panel and reads information on a small display.
EXT. SPACE - FRONTIERThe fighters make a final attack run and completely destroy the massive vessel that was the Nimbus.
The Ko-Dan fighter squadron retreats and heads back to their UNSEEN Command Ship.INT. PLANET EXPRESS EMPLOYEE LOUNGE - NIGHT[music: King Kobra - Iron Eagle (Never Say Die)]Fry plays away at the Starfighter arcade, blasting the many incomming fighters while rocking to the music.In 3-by-3 formation the fighters flood the screen, but are targeted and destroyed instantly by Fry's increasing reflexes.Leela enters the room and approaches Fry.
She holds up a tape.
She walks away, depressed.Just then, Bender enters the room.
Bender runs to the door and exits.INT. CONFERENCE ROOM - NIGHTThe Planet Express crew is seated at the conference table, with Hermes standing text to a flowchart.
Bender runs into the room.
Bender leads the group out of the room... Leela stays behind.
INT. EMPLOYEE LOUNGE - NIGHTThe Planet Express crew is gathered around Fry as he continues to fight off the Ko-Dan fighters mercilessly.
Fighters flood the screen in 6-by-6 formations. Fry targets and destroys them with lightening-fast reflexes, edging him closer to an UNSEEN goal.
The remaining six fighters attempt to retreat, but Fry destroys them with ease.BOLD WORDS flash on the screen with the echoing voice:
The giant Command Ship revolves on the screen in a brief cinematic.
Fry targets the soft-spots on the ship's hull and blasts them with his high-power lasers.Laser power is drained. He switches to the low-power particle beams and continues pounding the vessel... until it finally bursts into a barrage of exploding effects and flying pixelated debris.Fry jumps in the air with a cry of victory, as the rest of the crew chear with roaring applause.BOLD WORDS flash on the screen:
EXT. PLANET EXPRESS BUILDING - NIGHTThe cheering of the Planet Express crew echoes through the city block in the moonlit night.A distant dog barks and howels at the noise.More to come.
Awesome work! Can't wait to see more!
May the Glory of Gaea be with you
Much thanks Dylan.
Yippie Kai Yay, Mr. Falcon.
Thanks. Will try and update soon.

The Second-In-Command exits the bridge.EXT. PLANET EXPRESS BUILDING - NIGHTFry takes a walk outside the building, listening to his music.The sky and streets are empty and silent.One vehicle creeps down the road ahead, towards the Planet Express Building.Fry walks up to the vehicle... an old-fashoned one, but with futuristic modifications.The passenger door automatically opens upward.
Fry edges closer to see who the driver is.
Fry points down the opposite road.
This time the river.
The door closes and the car pulls away, heading towards the river. It crashes through the barriers and hovers for a moment.
The car drops into the water and sinks.INT. EMPLOYEE LOUNGE - NIGHTZoidberg enters, carefully observing the empty room. The arcade game catches his eyes.
Zoidberg walks up to the machine and pulls out a quarter.
The nearby Slurm and snack machines catch his eyes.
Back to the arcade.
Zoidberg inserts the coin and begins playing. He is defeated quickly.
Zoidberg collapses to the floor and sobs... until he spots another quarter next to the snack machine.
He picks it up... looks at the arcade. He does the smarter thing and puts it in the snack machine. He takes an extra-extra small bag of Chocolate Microchips, the size of a human fist.He opens the bag.
He scarfs the contents of the bag and scuttles away.Leela enters and stops him.
He hands the bag to her and exits very sad.Leela looks at the bag... slimy with Zoidberg's saliva.
She throws it in the trash can and quickly exits to find something to wash her hands with.More to follow.
Stingray wrote:ZOIDBERG:Ugh, why must they always fill these bags half-way?
Oh God, don't get me started...
And not just with bags of chips, but with other various snacks like crackers and candy, or even cereal. Remember when "Family-Size" Lay's were actually family-size and could feed the whole family with it in a giant bowl, yet more of it still in the bag sometimes lasted more than a day in the cupboard? Good times. Now they just last 10 minutes tops in a cereal bowl for one person. This is an outrage!!
Insta-liked and joined. Thanks Air Gopher!
By the way, do you have a FB account?
EXT. CITY STREET - NIGHTFry walking the empty street, listening to his music.Suddenly a flash of light appears in the sky, followed by the roar of booster engines.Fry watches in surprise as a massive GUNSTAR lands softly in the middle of the street.
The elevator above begins to descend. As it reaches the ground, a humanoid being steps off and walks towards Fry. He wears a helmet with transparent blast shield, but fog and condensation inside conceals his face.
He removes the helmet... he is very human in appearence. A Rylon.

They carry on loud conversations that fill the room with voices.The Rylon TEACHER/INSTRUCTOR is seated at his desk sorting and grading papers, with earphones on, blasting his music to drown out the annoying voices of the class.Fry walks up to him.
He ignores him... or just doesn't notice him.
Still nothing. One student in the front row notices him.
Varrow gets out of his seat, dodging a laser blast.
He points to an Omicronian, RRRMMM.
An assassin robot, IG-88, turns to Rrrmmm.
Varrow walks Fry through the rest of the class.
Fry stares wide-eyed at the battle droid with weapon compartments covering his outer casing.
IG-88 zaps a flying boot with his palm-laser.
LYMBO sits at his desk, wearing a combat boot on his head. He has a pile of boots under his deask.
Lymbo throws a boot at Fry. He dodges it and it breaks a window to the opposite corridor instead.
He throws a boot at Rrrmm's head.
Fry turns back to Varrow.
Fry sees a desk tilted on its side in the far left corner of the room. DILBERT is hiding behind it, eating a bag of Glagnar's Human Rinds.
Dilbert peeks over the desk to see Fry.
He holds up the bag of rinds.
He dissappears behind the desk, wolfing down the rinds.Fry uneasily slides over to an empty desk.The teacher takes his headphones off and stands in front of the crazy class.
The class quiets down... except for Lymbo.
