SCENE #128 – INT – DALEK LAB #4 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
The Doctor and Elaine are now in Dalek Lab #4. Elaine watches as the Doctor works hard with the laboratory equipment he has at his disposal. He begins to set everything up for his experiments. A Dalek is on guard as the Doctor and Elaine confer quietly with each other.

ELAINE
“Are you okay there, Doctor? Do you need any help?”

DOCTOR
“Hmm? Uh no, not yet. Just getting things ready before the Daleks bring that drug. I want to make sure I have everything on stand-by so that this can be speedy.”

The Doctor prepares utensils and tools to set up his experiments.

ELAINE
“Doctor? Why are you helping the Daleks?”

DOCTOR
“Curiosity.”

ELAINE
“Curiosity of what?”

DOCTOR
“The Dwaxi. The fabric of space-time is so considerably fragile at the moment. I need to know who these Dwaxi are in order to put them back where they came from.”

ELAINE
“But you said, something about the Daleks not telling you everything.”

DOCTOR
“So I did, Elaine. So I did.”

ELAINE
“What is that supposed to mean?”

DOCTOR
“Oh it’s an instinct. Whenever the Daleks tell me to do something for them there’s always a secret lining in the words of what they claim. They may say they need my help, but are they just saying that to satisfy something they’re hiding.”

ELAINE
“You mean…there may be more to why the Dwaxi are here. Why they’re constantly attacking this sector of space.”

DOCTOR
“More importantly. Why the Dwaxi treat the Daleks as their enemy. And why they’re able to beat them so greatly!”

Just then, the electronic doors slide open. The Agent Dalek enters with two more Daleks gliding into the lab. One Dalek carries a stack of liquid tubes in its sucker stick. The Doctor goes to greet them.

DOCTOR
(cheerfully) “Ah! Christmas already! So nice of you to bring me presents!”

AGENT DALEK
“THIS IS THE SUBSTANCE KNOWN AS YENTIAS!”

DOCTOR
“Of course. The Dwaxi drug that heightens emotion and strength!”

AGENT DALEK
“YOUR MISSION TO CONDUCT TESTS TO PRODUCE AN ANTIGEN VIRUS FOR THE DRUG WILL COMMENCE IMMEDIATELY! YOU WILL NOT FALTER FROM YOUR TASK, DOC-TOR!”

ELAINE
“Alright, alright. You don’t have to be so pressurising! The Doctor will do these experiments for you!”

DOCTOR
“Thank you for your confidence in me, Elaine!”

AGENT DALEK
(to Dalek) “DALEK UNIT #ONE-NINE-FIVE. SET THE SELECTION OF DRUG MATERIAL ON THE TABLE!”

DALEK UNIT #195
“I OBEY!”

The Dalek obeys, as it places the stack of Yentias drugs in its sucker stick onto the table next to the Doctor.

AGENT DALEK
“WE HAVE FOUND YOUR TARDIS ABOARD THE EARTH SHIP MOON-RAKER!”

DOCTOR
(mock-surprise; wryly) “Really?! I’m so glad you were able to find it!”

AGENT DALEK
“IT IS BEING SECURED! YOU WILL NOT ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE IN IT!”

DOCTOR
“Oh no. No of course not. And you can’t get into it yourselves since you have no hands to open it. Well of course you do have hands for sucker sticks but they don’t have fingers, do they?!”

AGENT DALEK
“YOU WILL BEGIN YOUR WORK INSTANTLY! DO NOT DELAY OR DEVIATE!”

ELAINE
(interjects) “What about the others? Captain Sulley and the crew! Are they still working in the mines or have you given them a rest!”

AGENT DALEK
“THEY HAVE ESCAPED FROM THE MINES!”

DOCTOR
(pleased) “Good for them! I’m glad they were able to escape!”

AGENT DALEK
“IT DOES NOT MATTER. THEY WILL BE KILLED EVENTUALLY!” (Pause) “NOW BEGIN YOUR WORK!”

The Agent Dalek then leaves the room. The remaining Daleks keep watch on the Doctor and Elaine.

DOCTOR
“Right then. Let’s get to it!”

The Doctor sets to work, as he picks up one of the tube containing the Yentias drug. Elaine sits next to the Doctor and talks quietly to him.

ELAINE
“Doctor? Will Kevin and the others be alright?”

DOCTOR
“I should think so. If they’ve managed to escape they’d probably think about heading back to the Moonraker if they’re wise.”

ELAINE
“What was it they were mining for anyway? Mineral ores or something.”

DOCTOR
“If it’s Daleks we’re dealing with, I suspect it’s something more ambitious. No it’s something to do with….” (Pause; realises) “Oh no!”

ELAINE
“What?”

DOCTOR
(disbelieving) “It can’t be. It just can’t be!”


SCENE #129 – EXT – SLIU MINES SURFACE – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
Meanwhile, Captain Sulley and Colin have managed to reach the surface of the Sliu Mines. They climb up the stairs to get to the top. They look around to see the dense and gloomy atmosphere before them.

COLIN
(pants) “Well! Now we’ve reached the surface. What happens now?”

CAPTAIN
“This land’s devastated! What has that Yondamon Ambassador done to his own people! Surely there must be a chance for this planet to be revived!”

COLIN
(agitated) “Now that we’ve reached the surface, what do we do Captain? We can’t just wait here for the rest of our crew to come!”

CAPTAIN
“Quite wrong, Mr. Wilson. That’s precisely what we intend to do.”

COLIN
“But it might be hours before any surviving crew gets here.”

CAPTAIN
(cries) “Get down!”

COLIN
“What?”

CAPTAIN
(urgently) “There’s a Dalek coming! Get down!”

Both Captain Sulley and Colin get down on their knees.

CAPTAIN
“Quick! Behind the rocks! Quick, Wilson!”

Both Captain Sulley and Colin scramble up behind the rocks to take cover. A Dalek on patrol glides past. It soon stops in its track, as it scans the whole area for a few moments. Captain Sulley and Colin remain whilst the Dalek searches. Eventually, the Dalek glides on, leaving Captain Sulley and Colin where they’re hiding. Once the Dalek has gone, Captain Sulley sighs with relief as he and Colin get up off the ground from behind the rocks.

CAPTAIN
“Thank goodness it didn’t see us!”

Colin then groans suddenly.

CAPTAIN
(concerned) “Mr. Wilson? Are you alright?”

Colin eventually asserts herself.

COLIN
“I’ll be alright.”

CAPTAIN
“Are you sure?”

COLIN
(agitated) “I’m fine.” (Pause) “We can’t stay here forever, Captain Sulley. Those Daleks will soon catch us! We must do something!”

CAPTAIN
“We are going to! We’re waiting for the crew of our ship!”

COLIN
“We don’t know if they’re alive or dead, sir. We mustn’t linger here forever!”

CAPTAIN
“We won’t stay here forever, Mr. Wilson. We’ll just wait here until any sign of crew come up. I’m sure they’ll come.”

COLIN
“We should make better use of our time!” (Pause) “We could go and find that Doctor and Elaine. Surely you’d want to know where Elaine is, since you love her.”

CAPTAIN
(surprised) “How did you know that? I never told anyone else that.”

COLIN
(hesitates) “I managed to overhear it. So that must be a reason for not staying here in this…wilderness. We should go and find the Doctor and Elaine.”

CAPTAIN
“No.”

COLIN
“Do you want to end up like Gavin? How he died?”

CAPTAIN
“I’m still in command, Mr. Wilson and I say we stay here! And that is an order!”

Colin then takes out a gun and aims it at Captain Sulley.

COLIN
(threateningly) “You will move on! Do as I say!”

CAPTAIN
(gradually) “Put that gun away, Mr. Wilson. Threatening me won’t get you anywhere!”

COLIN
(threateningly) “This is not a threat, it a command! Now do as I say! Move!”

CAPTAIN
“You dare to challenge my authority! I’m your Captain, remember?”

COLIN
(threateningly) “You are a prisoner of the Daleks!”

CAPTAIN
“What are you talking about?”

COLIN
(shouts; threateningly) “You will obey me! Obey or you will be exterminated!”

Moment of silence.

CAPTAIN
(shocked) “Colin! You sound just like a Dalek!”

SUPREME DALEK
“HE IS CONDITIONED TO SERVE US!”

Captain Sulley turns to see the Supreme Dalek approaching behind him.

CAPTAIN
(despearingly) “You managed to catch up then.”

SUPREME DALEK
“YOU, CAPTAIN, WILL BE TAKEN TO THE DOCTOR AND COMMANDER THOMAS IN DALEK LAB FOUR!”

COLIN
(insistently; threateningly) “Do not force me to use this, Captain. I will use it!”

A trigger is clicked as Colin aims the gun at Captain Sulley’s head. The Captain meanwhile is shocked by his fellow officer’s sudden behaviour.


SCENE #130 – EXT – GAMOR ROCK CLIFFS, YONDAMUS IV – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
Back on Yondamus IV, at the Gamor rock cliffs, Nyssa and Billy sit down together. They eat their sandwiches whilst Boco and Hilda are somewhere else attending to Sandy the Globtol Ferroca.

BILLY
“So these Dwaxi thugs are addicted to drugs? How disturbing!”

NYSSA
“The Dwaxi are addicted to some form of drug that heightens their volatile nerves and makes them aggressive.”

BILLY
“Yeah and that explains why they were able to beat me up so hard. I’ve never had such a horrible experience as that.”

NYSSA
“If only the Doctor were here. He might be able to make sense of this. Perhaps he could save Nina and Jack’s life.”

BILLY
“Yes. I shouldn’t have left the Doctor. But I was so worried about you, that I just didn’t think.”

NYSSA
“Well, never mind that. At least you’ve got your new friends Boco and Hilda. Perhaps they can help us out!”

BILLY
“Yes. I have been fortunate in finding these two. They’re so dotty but I really like them.”

NYSSA
“Billy! That’s no way to talk about them.”

BILLY
“Hey! Dotty’s good. It’s much better than being around those rough Dwaxi and intimidating Daleks.”

NYSSA
“The Doctor will sort it out. He’s always does.”

BILLY
(enthused) “Yeah. Then we’ll able to go to Traken!”

Moment of silence

NYSSA
“Billy?”

BILLY
“Yes.” (Pause) “What is it, Nyssa?”

NYSSA
(slowly) “About Traken, Billy. I…well the…the fact is I…”

Moment of silence, as Nyssa is unable to tell the truth to Billy for a moment.

BILLY
“You don’t want me to see Traken?”

NYSSA
“No! No, it’s not that.”

BILLY
“Is it because I left you behind here. I’m sorry Nyssa. I did say I was sorry, didn’t I?”

NYSSA
“No, Billy. Just listen for a moment.” (Pause) “Traken…I’m really flattered you want to see my home.”

BILLY
“I do Nyssa, I do.”

Moment of silence.

NYSSA
“It’s just…it’s not possible.”

BILLY
“What do you mean?”

NYSSA
(gradually) “It’s not there, Billy. It doesn’t exist.”

BILLY
(puzzled) “What…what do you mean it doesn’t exist? You mean it’s not real.”

NYSSA
“No, that’s not it.”

BILLY
“You come from a different planet.”

NYSSA
“No, Billy! Please listen!” (Pause) “Traken’s gone.”

BILLY
“Gone?”

NYSSA
“It was destroyed.” (Pause) “That was how I met the Doctor. When my planet was destroyed.”

Moment of silence.

BILLY
“I see.”

NYSSA
“I’m sorry, Billy. I didn’t mean to upset you.”

BILLY
(saddened) “No, no. That’s fine.” (Pause) “I’m so sorry, Nyssa. I didn’t realise.”

After a moment of silence, Nyssa and Billy are then interrupted as Hilda and Boco turn up.

HILDA
(cheerfully) “Hey, you two lovebirds! Are you finished with your sandwiches?”

BILLY
(startled) “Err…yes. Thank you Hilda. They were nice. Weren’t they, Nyssa?”

NYSSA
“Yes. They were nice, thank you!”

BOCO
“Well! Sandy’s getting restless. We’d better set off before we have to catch up with him. So if you two are ready we’ll…”

BILLY
“Yes. Of course. We’re ready.”

Nyssa and Billy get up from the floor and stand to their feet.

NYSSA
“Where are we going, Mr. Boco.”

BOCO
“Just plain Boco, please Nyssa.”

HILDA
“And it’s just plain Hilda for me, sweetie.”

BOCO
“We’re going to make it back to my hut. Then we can do whatever you like from there. Whatever you had in mind.”

HILDA
“So we’d better set off then.”

BOCO
“Indeed. Come on.”

They all set off, as Boco and Hilda lead the way out of the Gamor rock cliff. Nyssa and Billy follow.


SCENE #131 – EXT – GAMOR ROCK CLIFFS, YONDAMUS IV – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
At the edge of the Gamor rock cliffs, Boco; Hilda; Nyssa and Billy return to where they first came in. They make to step onto the plains of Micros Pli.

HILDA
“So then? Where did you leave the space-travel jeep?”

BOCO
“Not far. I think.”

Moment of silence.

BOCO
(groans) “Oh no!”

BILLY
“What is it?”

BOCO
“Where is that silly Sandy?”

HILDA
(annoyed) “Oh no! He’s not gone again! We managed to find him, now we’ve lost him again!”

BOCO
“I told you he was in a hurry!”

HILDA
“Well let’s get back to the jeep anyway. He couldn’t have gone far!”

BILLY
“I think that’s the jeep over there! See?”

They look to see where the space-travel jeep is.

NYSSA
(cries) “Get down!”

BILLY
“What?”

NYSSA
(cries; urgently) “All of you, get down!”

Nyssa; Billy; Boco and Hilda get down behind some rocks.

HILDA
(baffled) “What is it?”

NYSSA
“Look!”

They all then look over some rocks to see what is happening.

BILLY
(horrified) “Daleks?! How did they get here?”

HILDA
“Were they the ones that were trying to chase you, Billy?”

BILLY
“They could be. But I’d thought they would have stopped chasing me.”

NYSSA
“The Daleks are relentless.”

BOCO
“There’s about four of them! And they’re all around my jeep. What are they going to do?”

Boco’s question is answered, as the four Daleks surround the jeep. They raise their ray guns and aim on the jeep

DALEKS
“EXTERMINATE!”

The four Daleks open fire onto the jeep. The jeep blows up into smithereens. Fire flares from the jeep once it has been destroyed by the Daleks.

BOCO
“My jeep! They blew up my jeep! Those monsters!”

HILDA
“Good thing we’ve got the babies!”

BILLY
“What do we do now? We can’t go anywhere!”

NYSSA
“Let’s think this through, shall we?”

HILDA
“I don’t know about you, but I’m going back in those cliffs to hide.”

NYSSA
“No, Hilda, wait! Just wait a minute.”

HILDA
“I’m going!”

But before Hilda can go anywhere, she is stopped in her tracks by a Dalek who comes up behind the group in the rocks. This is the Dalek Hunter who raises its gun stick at Hilda.

DALEK HUNTER
“DO NOT MOVE!”

HILDA
(protests) “Oh no! That’s not fair!”

Everyone turns as they see the foreboding Dalek behind them as it trains it’s gun on them.

DALEK HUNTER
“YOU WILL ALL STAND!”

Boco; Nyssa and Billy stand up with Hilda, as they see the Dalek before them.

DALEK HUNTER
“YOU ARE THE PRISONERS OF THE DALEKS! YOU WILL NOT ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE! YOU WILL BE TAKEN TO OUR SHIP! IF YOU FAIL TO OBEY OUR INSTRUCTIONS OR ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE, YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED! EXTERMINATED! EXTERMINATED! EXTERMINATED!” (Pause) “MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!”

Without choice, Boco; Hilda; Nyssa and Billy are forced by the Dalek Hunter to make for the Dalek ship.

BILLY
“This is definitely not our day, is it?”


SCENE #132 – INT – MICROS WAREHOUSE #5 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
At the Dwaxi headquarters within Micros Warehouse #5 on Yondamus IV, a furious alarm blares off in the warehouse. Every Dwaxi trooper runs about frantically. They bump into each other; punch each other in the faces, spit at each other and say ghastly words to each other whilst the alarm blares off. Commander Targah enters to this pandemonium.

TARGAH
(yells; angrily) “WHAT IS THAT FREAKING SOUND?”

GABROG
“It’s an alarm, Commander!”

TARGAH
(yells; angrily) “I KNOW IT’S AN ALARM, YOU BOZO GABROG! I WANT TO KNOW WHY IT’S GOING OFF!”

The Blockade then enters.

BLOCKADE
(yells; furiously) “DALEKS! DALEKS! DALEKS! FREAKING DALEKS!”

TARGAH
“What are you blabbing about now, Blockade? What about those tin pots?”

BLOCKADE
(yells) “THERE ARE DALEKS ON THIS PLANET!”

TARGAH
“WHAT?!”

BLOCKADE
(yells) “THEY ARE ROAMING ACROSS THE PLAINS OF MICROS PLI IN BROAD DAYLIGHT! THEY’VE EVEN GOT A SHIP LANDED HERE!”

GABROG
“Those junk-pots have gone too far! First they invade our space, now they land on our new B.O.O!”

BLOCKADE
(taunts Gabrog) “BOO-HOO-HOO! BOO-HOO-HOO-HOO-HOO!!!!!”

TARGAH
(angrily) “SHUT UP, BLOCKADE!” (Pause) “We shall take our fight to the Daleks!” (to Gabrog) “Are all the communication stations ready?”

GABROG
“They’ve been ready for the past four hours, flunk-head!”

TARGAH
“Good! We shall call our brothers! The Dwaxi Empire will be unleashed!” (to Blockade) “Blockade! Make the announcement!”

BLOCKADE
(yells) “YES SIR!”

The Blockade goes over to a communications desk and grabs a microphone. The Blockade raises the microphone to his mouth and speaks into it.

BLOCKADE
(yells) “HELLO! HELLO!!! THIS IS BLOCKADE! ALRIGHT YOU LUMBER-HEADS! GET YOUR BUTTS OFF YOUR SEATS AND START SENDING OUT THE CALL! OUR COMMANDER WANTS OUR BROTHERS TO COME HERE! YOU HEAR ME! GET ON WITH IT! GET ON WITH IT NOW!! NOW! NOW!!!!!!”


SCENE #133 – INT – MICROS COMMS STATION #4 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
At Micros Comms Station #4 nearby, the Dwaxi trooper working in the control room receives the Blockade’s instruction. The Dwaxi trooper switches off the intercom and addresses the Dwaxi technicians in the control room .

DWAXI TROOPER
(barks) “Well! You heard what he said! Send the signals! And get on with it!”

The Dwaxi technicians work furiously as they obey. They enter computations into the control panels, as the Dwaxi technicians begin to send the signals into space.

DWAXI TECHNICIAN
(bitterly) “Sending signals…now!”


SCENE #134 – EXT – MICROS PLI, YONDAMUS IV – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
The communication stations of the Micros Comms Institute in Micros Pli activate their satellite transmitters. Every transponders looks upwards, as each comms station transmits communication signals into the sky. The transmissions of these signals occurs at a frequent pace.


SCENE #135 – EXT – YONDAMUS SPACE – 26TH CENTURY – N/A
In deep space, the communication signals pass through the barriers of light of Yondamus IV’s outer shell. The signals are sent into a sector of deep space. No response is received yet.


SCENE #136 – INT – MICROS WAREHOUSE #5 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
Back on Yondamus IV, Targah gets impatient. He stomps about with Gabrog and the Blockade watching him, as they all wait for an response to the signals being sent into space.

TARGAH
“What’s taking them so long? Those idiots should have received our message by now!”

Targah stomps a while longer before coming to a stop.

TARGAH
(impatiently) “We’ve waited long enough! Those cranks at the comms stations aren’t sending the signals right!”

GABROG
(agitated) “Perhaps it takes time, sir! For the signal to be sent through the rift!”

Targah grabs hold of Gabrog by the scruff of his neck..

TARGAH
(angrily) “Don’t play clever with me, you stupid git! I want my messages sent and received! I want the rest of the Dwaxi fleet!”

BLOCKADE
(shouts; loudly) “COMMANDER! MESSAGE FROM THE COMMS INSTITUTE!”

TARGAH
“Well go on, you idiot! tell me! TELL ME!!! TELL ME NOW!!!”

BLOCKADE
(yells) “THE SIGNAL IS BEING SENT! THE MESSAGE IS RECEIVED! THE DWAXI EMPIRE…IS UNLEASHED!!!!!!!”


SCENE #137 – EXT – YONDAMUS SPACE – 26TH CENTURY – N/A
Back in deep space, a massive armada of Dwaxi ships slip through a crack in space and time. After the first Dwaxi fleet comes through, thousands more of these vessels bleed through the fault lines. The Dwaxi ships zoom into this universe, as their engines roar with fiery vengeance.


SCENE #138 – INT – MICROS WAREHOUSE #5 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING

BLOCKADE
(laughs; yells) “TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THREE THOUSAND VESSELS ENTERING INTO THIS DUMP AND STILL COMING! OH WE’VE GOT GLORY ON OUR BACKSIDES!”

TARGAH
(overjoyed) “Brilliant! Tell them to send half the armada down to the planet! The other ships will board the perimeter of our base of operations.”

Blockade complies, as he picks up the microphone and speaks into it again.

BLOCKADE
(yells) “ALRIGHT, YOU LOT! IF YOU’RE CHEERING FOR JOY OR LAUGHING WITH HAVOC THEN SHUT UP AGAIN!!! TELL THE ARMADA TO SEND HALF OF THEM HERE, AND SEND THE REST OVER THERE! THERE OUR ENEMIES WILL FEAR US!” (Pause) “WELL GO ON! GET ON WITH IT!”

Whilst the Blockade barks commands into the microphone, Targah chuckles out loud menacingly.

TARGAH
(chuckles; menacingly) “Those Daleks will have a battering of a time!”

GABROG
“Yes, Commander! They will.”

TARGAH
(chuckles; menacingly) “And the whole universe will be in fear of us – our dominion!”

Targah’s chuckles turns into hysterical laughter as he delights in the horror the Dwaxi reek.

TARGAH
(laughs) “Death is victory!” (chants; to Dwaxi) “Death is victory, boys! Death is victory! DEATH IS VICTORY!!!”

DWAXI
(chants) “Death is victory! Death is victory! Death is victory! Death is victory! Death is victory! Death is victory!”

The Dwaxi chant continuously, including the gleeful Dwaxi Jack and the newly conditioned Dwaxi Nina.


SCENE #139 – INT – EMPEROR DALEK’S CHAMBER – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
On Yondamus Prime in the Emperor’s Chamber, one of the Dalek Emperor’s Guards approaches to address its Emperor.

DALEK EMPEROR GUARD
“EMPEROR!”

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms) “SPEAK!”

DALEK EMPEROR GUARD
“MOON-RAKER CAPTAIN SULLEY CAPTURED. BEING BROUGHT TO JOIN THE DOCTOR IN LAB FOUR INSTANTLY.”

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms) “CONTINUE.”

DALEK EMPEROR GUARD
“DALEK SPACE PATROLS REPORT THE PRESENCE OF A FURTHER DWAXI INTRUSION. THE FORCES OF THE DWAXI ARE MASSING.”

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms) “NO CONCERN. WE SHALL BE VICTORIOUS IN OUR RETALIATION! HAS THE MINING WORKINGS ON YONDAMUS PRIME BEEN COMPLETED!”

DALEK EMPEROR GUARD
“AFFIRMATIVE! DALEKS DESIGNATED TO MINING AREA HAVE CONFIRMED ‘PROJECT DE-GRAVITATE SUCCESSFUL!”

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms) “EXCELLENT! INITIATE THROTTLE ENGINES OF NEW DALEK SHIP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! INFORM DALEK UNITS INCLUDING MOTHERSHIP AND EARTH SHIP MOON-RAKER TO PREPARE TO DISEMBARK! DESTINATION: YONDAMUS FOUR!”

Moment of silence

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms; annoyed) “SEE TO IT!”


SCENE #140 – EXT – YONDAMUS SPACE – 26TH CENTURY – N/A
In deep space, Dalek fleets of ships moves forward away from Yondamus Prime. They make for their strategic positions in the direction of Yondamus IV. This includes standard battle ships and fleets, as well as the Dalek Mothership and the Moonraker now controlled by the Daleks. The planet is left abandoned once the ships have gone.


SCENE #141 – INT – DALEK LAB #4 – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
In Dalek Lab #4, the Doctor works hard with Elaine on the Yentias drug. There is then a fierce tremor where they are, and the whole room shudders around them.

ELAINE
(startled) “Doctor? That noise?”

DOCTOR
(startled) “Yes. It sounded like a volcanic eruption.” (to Dalek) “Excuse me. What was that?”

The fierce tremor then becomes violent, almost as if it’s an earthquake. The lab electronic doors then slide open, as Captain Sulley is pushed into the room by Colin. The Supreme Dalek also enters, taking up the rear. Captain Sulley then goes over to meet the Doctor and Elaine.

CAPTAIN
“Doctor; Elaine?”

DOCTOR
“Captain Sulley! Splendid to see you again.”

CAPTAIN
“I’m pleased you’re both still alive!”

ELAINE
“Where did you come from?”

CAPTAIN
“From the surface. Gavin got killed unfortunately. We escaped the mines and got to the surface…”

SUPREME DALEK
“SILENCE! YOU WILL REMAIN SILENT WHILST TAKE-OFF PROCEDURES ARE ENGAGED!”

CAPTAIN
“Where’s the Ambassador? Togal?”

ELAINE
“He’s dead. He got killed by the Daleks for the sake of working for them.”

CAPTAIN
“I’m sorry to say I’m not happy to hear that!”

DOCTOR
“He succumbed to the power the Daleks would grant him. He got what he deserved!”

SUPREME DALEK
“THE AMBASSADOR WAS MERELY A PAWN IN OUR WORKS! HE HAS GIVEN THE DALEKS THE KEY TO OUR MASTER PLAN!”

COLIN
“Indeed he has.”

ELAINE
(puzzled) “Colin? Colin, what’s happened to you?”

COLIN
“What does it look like? I’m working with the Daleks now!”

ELAINE
“Oh come off it…”

COLIN
(angrily) “Shut up, Elaine! I’m fed up with your feminine and superior ways! You think you’re better than me because you’ve got a full rank of command, do you? Well I’m not standing for it! The Daleks have given me the power to command! And I’m not going to waste it!”

DOCTOR
“Colin! That Dalek philosophy won’t work! The Daleks are capable of twisting their words and getting you the glory you want to satisfy their own needs. They’re ruthless in their tactics!”

COLIN
“You’re wrong, Doctor. The Daleks will soon obliterate the Dwaxi forces and become the supreme rulers of the universe.”

ELAINE
“What have they done to you, Colin? You didn’t kill Gavin, did you?”

COLIN
“No! He killed himself when risking his life to save us. Now it was all for nothing!”

CAPTAIN
“I don’t think so! He sacrificed his life so that he could save us. To save you and me Colin! To save our crew!”

COLIN
“A waste of time.”

DOCTOR
“No, Colin! That’s a sign of the humans’ greatest strength. Compassion. Compassion for other beings. To love and to be kind. To help and to care.”

SUPREME DALEK
“THOSE ARE WEAKNESSES OF HUMANITY! THE HUMAN FACTOR IS USELESS TO THE DALEKS! YOU OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT, DOC-TOR!”

The Supreme Dalek advances towards the Doctor, as they both look at each other in the eye. Moment of silence.

SUPREME DALEK
“YOUR WORK IS NOT OVER, DOC-TOR! VERY SOON WE SHALL SET FORTH TO MEET OUR ENEMIES AND DESTROY DWAXI INFESTATION!”

DOCTOR
“Really? And just how will you manage to do that? With a huge fleet? Dalek ships attacking the Dwaxi forces on Yondamus Four? You’ve tried that many times and many of your ships were destroyed, remember?”

SUPREME DALEK
“WE NEED NOT JUST DALEK SHIPS! WE HAVE THIS PLANET!”

DOCTOR
“Yondamus Prime?”

Suddenly, the lab shudders violent. Noises of drills occur from outside.

ELAINE
“What’s that? What’s going on? Why is everything shaking?”

SUPREME DALEK
“PROJECT: DE-GRAVITATE HAS BEEN ACHIEVED! THE DALEKS SHALL PILOT TO YONDAMUS FOUR!”

DOCTOR
“Project: De-gravitate? But that’s…”

SUPREME DALEK
“CORRECT, DOC-TOR! WE HAVE SET AN EXPLOSIVE CAPSULE INTO THE CORE OF YONDAMUS PRIME. THE MOLTEN CORE IS RELEASED AND ENGINE SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED! NOW WE CAN PILOT THIS PLANET ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE!”

Dalek Lab #4 shudders violently again. Everyone, except the Daleks, falls to the floor.  They soon get back to their feet, as Captain Sulley addresses the Doctor.

CAPTAIN
“Doctor? What are the Daleks saying? What do they mean?”

The lab shudders violently again.

DOCTOR
“It means, Captain…that the Dalek’s are controlling the orbital path of Yondamus Prime. Ambassador Togal would not be happy to see this.”

ELAINE
“Orbit path of Yondamus Prime?”

DOCTOR
“The Daleks are taking us to Yondamus Four, Elaine. And they’re using Yondamus Prime as a spaceship.”


SCENE #142 – EXT – YONDAMUS SPACE – 26TH CENTURY – N/A
The Daleks now pilot the planet of Yondamus Prime into space. The planet journeys for its destination to Yondamus IV. The Dalek fleet; the Dalek Mothership and the Moonraker travel alongside the Yondamus Prime planet at warp speed. On the surface of the planet, land masses fragment and oceans cause tidal waves and tsunamis all over.


SCENE #143 – INT – EMPEROR DALEK’S CHAMBER – 26TH CENTURY – EVENING
The Emperor Dalek’s pride is unwavering. Housed in its chamber, it looks down on its Dalek subjects and declares victory.

EMPEROR DALEK
(booms) “THE PRIME PLANET OF YONDAMUS SHALL BE OUR WAR MACHINE! THE DALEKS SHALL OBLITERATE WITH THE MIGHT OF ALL ULTIMATE POWER. THE DWAXI SHALL DETERIORATE! EXTERMINATE THE DWAXI AND THE DALEKS WILL BE SUPREME AGAIN!”

DALEKS
“EXTERMINATE THE DWAXI AND THE DALEKS WILL BE SUPREME AGAIN! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!”


Sting music. Roll original 1982 Peter Davison end credits.
