Script- Episode 7
Narrator: The Toard Star World where Gene presides
is a measureless one. Far away from the central
area, 4 known pirate groups vie for supremacy. One of the 4 is after the
Outlaw Star and Melfina,
to destroy them. This particular group are pirates of the Hopo system. They are called the 108
the most brutal member of the Chinese Guild. Centered around Tendo, the 108 suns are made
up of small groups of 10 or 20.
The leaders of these groups control independent organizations,
and they also pursue their own interests. Presently, the
boss of the pirates who are now pursuing
Gene is called Hazanko. He has power with the 108 suns. But because of the extent
of that power,
the power of his organization and the power of the methods he employs to achieve his goals, it
that the other leaders consider him superior. It is also said that the squads that carry
out his orders use a super power
called Sinjitsu and alsways slay those that stand against them.
Gene: Are you ready Gilliam
Lets do it. Activating all sensor systems. CFS activated. Radar activated.
Gilliam: All sensors are functioning.
Ether drive systems activated. Gravity control systems activated. Sub ether drive systems
system active. All systems green.
Gene; Gravity cycle unit system activated. Go!
Gilliam: The fusioin reactor
Gene: Uh oh.
Gilliam: Fusion reactor now activating. Sub-Reactor 1 operational and number 2. Number
Gilliam: Output falling. 70... 50... 30...
Gene: What do I do Gilliam?
Run a parabalance with the remaining reactors.
Gene: Oh yeah.
Gilliam: Reactors 2 and 4 output: 120... 130...

// Gene shuts off the ship.
Gilliam: Another failed liftoff I
Gene: You're the one who made me screw up! Every stinkin time you make trouble.
Gilliam: Preparing for
unexpected situations are what simulations are for. If you are unable to
manually respond to a small problem like this,
a lift off is probably out of the question
for the time being.
Gene: Bite me!
// He leaves.
Well, the ship hasn't been completely outfitted yet. So I suppose there's no rush.
Gene: Oh well. Looks like I better
get back to work.
Melfina: Hm? Ah.
Gene: So, anything new?
// He throws an apple at her.
Melfina: No, not really Ah! Oh.
What about Jim?
Melfina: At the Police Station.
Gene: Police Station?
Melfina: Yes. Apparantly they impounded
Gene: The Ao Frao?
Melfina: Yes, thats what he said.
Gene: Hmm... Well that sort of thing
doesn't happen in Locus very often.
Gene: I sure don't like this. Something's fishy. Hm?
Jim's out in his car.
Jim: Hey Gene! I found her! I found her! Hey Gene! Ah, she's safe and sound. I'll never leave
Gene: I definately don't like this.
// A few pirates are listening in on their conversations.
They said she racked up too many parking tickets. I tried hard to come up with an excuse.
Gene: You should have just
told them that we were attacked by pirates.
Jim: No way. They never would have believed me. You don't even know how
much the fine and towing
costs added up tube. Its crazy I'm telling you.
// Later, they head to Clyde's bar.
What'll it be... Gene! I can't believe you two are still alive.
Gene; Yeay, its good to see you too Clyde.
I hear that some pirates were after you, so I just assumed that...
Iris: Gene... Thank goodness.
oh its okay.
Iris: I've been so worried about you.
Gene; Oh Iris, you sweet thing.
Jim: I'll tell you
who's the sweet talker, you.
Iris: Its been 2 weeks, what have you been up tol.
Gene: Its a long, boring story,
you don't want to know.
Iris: You're bad. Hm? Oh, and who are you?
Gene: That's Melfina. She's a new friend.
Iris: errh... Yeah! Hmph.
Gene: Clyde, has anyone been asking questions about us, I mean questions they
shoudn't be asking?
Clyde: Well, after that fight its been pretty busy in here. But nobody's asked any important
Hm.... I sure don't like this.
Jim: Whats your problem?
Gene: It's nothing.
// Later, they sit down at
Gene: Its seems like such a long time. But it hasn't even been 2 whole weeks since we left here.
So, now what're we gonna do?
Gene: Well, the rest of the container we ordered from Fred should be coming in tomorrow.
to get the Outlaw Star into perfect working order.
Jim: Well yeah, that'd be nice but...
Jim: To be blunt idiot, we are broke!
Gene: What do you mean? The account?
Jim: Well yeah, there's
not much left. The space port rental took up a lot of dough.
Gene: No way! Hm...
Jim: One. We earn money the
Gene: But then I wouldn't have time to work on the Outlaw Star.
Jim: Two. We earn it the easy way.
Hey Clyde, have any big bounties turned up lately?
Clyde: No way, not since that time you took down Death Rob.
Jim: Three. The sleazy way.
Jim: Maybe sell your body?
Gene: Yours would sell
Jim: I guess three's a bust then.
Gene: Hmm... Four. We pay later.
Jim: Pay who?
I don't know.
Clyde: I don't take credit here you know.
Gene and Jim: Ah. Oh man.
Jim: Well its gotta
be number one then.
Gene: Yeah, what about the Outlaw Star?
Jim: I'll leave that to you. I'll earn us enough
to live on for the time being.
Gene: I don't know.
Melfina: Um. If theres anything I can do to help, please
Gene: Are you good at cooking eggs?
Melfina: Oh. I'm not really sure. I've never cooked them before
so I don't know.
Gene: Well, then you can learn now. You're on kitchen duty, Melfina.
Melfina: Um. kay.
They walk home...
Gene: Man, theres nothing as relaxing as this town.
Jim: Yeah, yeah. Hm.
you know we're gonna have to leave here pretty soon.
Jim: Yeah, I know.
Gene: But how far? Where are we going
and just how far away?
Jim: Its nice to look up at the sky and all, but lets look where we're stepping. Hey, you know
will be tough.
Gene: Yeah, I know that alright.
// That night, Gene gets up. He finds Melfina downstairs on
Gene: Whats wrong, you can't sleep?
Gene: Hey, I bet you wish Bio-Androids didn't
have to be so human. Is that what you were thinking
Melfina: Yeah, thats right.
Gene: Jeez, I
don't understand anything around here.
// Melfina leans on his shoulder.
Melfina: Let me stay like this until
I fall asleep. When I'm like this, I feel like I can dream.
I feel like I am dreaming.
Jim: Hey, what do you think you're doing scumbag?
Oh I uh... I just thought I'd see how human Melfina really is.
Jim: Just how human is she? Mel's more human than you.
// Jim snuggles up with Melfina.
Jim: She's like my mom.
Gene: Oh. Hmm...
// The next
day, Gene works on the Outlaw Star.
Gilliam: The engine covers are not regulation parts. So please replace them all.
Yeah, well how bout helping out huh?
Gilliam: If we were in zero gravity I would be able to perform heavy labor. But
as you can see,
I am powerless in this gravity.
Gene: Then work on the interior!
Gilliam: I am of course.
Please perform a check later.
Gene: Alright, alright.
// The manager calls for him over the loudspeaker.
Gene: Yeah, what?
Manager: We need to talk. Could you come to the business office?
Uh... I knew this was coming. Give me a minute okay?
// Meanwhile, Melfina cooks.
Melfina: Once it comes to
a boil reduce heat, simmer till cooked brew. Hm.
// Jim meanwhile repairs a tractor.
Jim: This thing's a goner.
I'm gonna have to put in a new engine or buy all new parts for just
Farmer: If I had that kinda
money I'd take it to a dealer.
Jim: Yes my friend. This is exactly where Starwind and Hawking Enterprises can really
do a thing.
Actually, we have an engine we happened to come across. Of course we charge far less than a
Great, I knew it. I knew I could count on you.
Jim: You bet pal.
// In the Business Office...
I thought that I told you to pay all the dock fees in advance. And if you're gonna be
here for a while, I must insist that
you pay for that too.
Gene: We've payed you for the next 3 days, right?
Manager: Well, you haven't applied for
launch clearance I see.
Gene: We will pay you for any overage, okay?
Manager: Just how much longer will you
Gene: I'm not sure.
// Meanwhile, one of the pirates, an odd looking bald one, attempts to break into
the Outlaw Star.
Gilliam: Warning. Thats not the captain. Gene!
Gene: Gilliam, whats going on?
Its an intruder.
// Meanwhile, at home...
Melfina: Hey, welcome back. Huh?
pirate, this one extremely tall, stands at the door.
Gilliam, where's the intruder?
Gilliam: He's escaping by elevator 2.
// The elevator arrives at the bottom.
Gene shoots, but it ends up just being a crate of food.
Gilliam: Gene, above you!
// Gene dodges the attack.
Uh! Come here, yah jerk.
// Meanwhile, Melfian is running from the pirate.
Melfina: Oh! Uh... Oh...
The pirate swings his mase like weapon at her, but suddenly Suzuka arrives and blocks the
Suzuka: I come to visit Gene Starwind and what
do I find? Some of the most interesting people are
trying to kill him as well. Tell me, are you a Kai pirate?
Suzuka: Exactly what I was thinking. Gene Starwind is my pray.
Stay back now.
Kyokan: I'll say it again. Don't interfere with me.
Suzuka: Well in
that case, this is going to be a fine oppurtunity to put Gene in my debt.
// Gene fires at the pirate, who runs into
a nearby field.
Gene: I finally got to blow off some steam. You left some lookouts here now, didn't ya? Eh?
right, Mr. Pirate?
Yase: Heh heh heh. So where is Hilda now?
Gene: Hm. You don't seem to understand what you
got yourself into now, do ya buddy?
Yase: Hm. Is that so.
// A bunch of pirates rise up from the ground and

Gene: I ain't talking.

taking out most of them with ease.
// Meanwhile, Suzuka battles the other pirate.
attacks, which he blocks with some sort of light shield.
Suzuka: Hm. So you are a Sinjitsu master.
You have interesting techniques yourself.
Suzuka: Well, I'm just getting warmed up. No one has seen more than 3 of
my secret techniques. You still have time, it isn't sunset yet. How many sunsets will you see before dying?
You're the one thats going to die.
// Gene continues to battle in the field.
Gene: Uh! Alright!
and the pirate continue to battle...
Kyokan: Eh, yah!
Kyokan: Pa gu a sun fa. Pa gu a sun

her sword at him.
Pirate: What did you call that?
Suzuka: Standard Heeven number one.
Kyokan: Hm. I see.
// He dies.
Suzuka: Its alright, its over now.
Melfina: Oh... kay.
Suzuka: Do you think
it would be alright if I waited for Gene at his shop?
Melfina: Uh... sure.
// Meanwhile, Gene hides behind a
Yase: Looks like he's finally dead once and for all. Hm. I had questions to ask him but its too late.
Gene shoots at one of the pirates.
Yase: What? Ah!
// Gene takes out most of the pirates. However, the head
pirate charges him.
// He knocks Gene to the ground.
I have a few questions I'd like to ask you. Will you be a good boy and answer?
Gene: My lucky number's one, my favorite
color's red, and oh...
Yase: Where is Hilda now, huh? Why did you and
your friends come back to Sentinel by
themselves? What happened to my people? Answer me!
Gene: What'll I get?
I'll go ahead and grant you a quick death.
Gene: You'll have to make me a better offer than that.
I will, depending on your answer.
Farmer: What could have exploded out here in the field?
Farmer2: I don't know,
thats why they told us to check it out.
// Gene shoots at the pirate.
Farmer: That was a gun shot over there!
Gene takes the oppurtunity to escape and shoot at the pirate.
Yase: We'll take back the XGP! Count on it!
Call for backup!

Nah, no one. Apparantly, they're scared of getting involved.

Melfina: Welcome back,
Jim: What the hell are you doing here? You want Gene, don't cha?
Suzuka: Yes, where is he?
Oh yeah, like I would tell ya.
Suzuka: Its in your best interest to find him as soon as possible. Because it seems

Jim: Uh... the pirates?
Melfina: Its alright, don't worry. Suzuka
Jim: She did? But why?
Suzuka: Because you people are rather interesting to me.

Gilliam: He's inside working right now.
Jim: Alright then, just

Jim: Hey Gene!
Gene: Yeah, yeah, thats right the pirates
Jim: What're we gonna do?
Gene: Well, we're gonna load up all the equipment we can, and launch as
soon as possible.
Suzuka: Excuse me, would you explain whats going on here? If you're really gonna fight the Kai
I wouldn't mind helping out at all.
Gene: At this point all we can do is fight them. I don't know.
I just don't know the real reason
why. I really have no idea.
Jim: Hey Gene...
whats the matter, what's wrong?
// Jim touches Gene, then looks at his hand in shock. There's blood there.
What? What the hell is this?
Gene: Yeah, I tried to patch it up, I guess I didn't do a good job.
