SCENE #1 – EXT – JUNGLOS – DATE: 198 – DAY, EVENING
In a dark region of space, a small planet called Junglos exists. The jungle planet breeds with life and is in its first epoch on the date 198. On a day where evening approaches, birds fly in the sky and growls and roars echo from various sorts of animals, beasts and creatures. There are also powered-up turbine engines echoing from a spaceship as it zooms across the planet surface, disrupting the planet’s tranquil atmosphere over the rainforests below.
SCENE #2 – EXT – RETATIF FIELDS, JUNGLOS – DATE: 198 – NIGHT
Later that night, battle rages across the fields of Retatif on Junglos. Two great armies fight against each other as they’re vicious and ferocious. These armies include the savage-like tribes of the Gren and the pirate armies of Caribbe. The Gren savages are wild and merciless as they howl and chant against their enemies. The Caribbe pirates retaliate, howling in pirate fashion as they strike their cutlasses and firearms against their savage attackers. The battle takes place on the Retatif fields, before the mighty, menacing and cruel tower of Ungol towering above them.
SCENE #3 – INT – CORRIDOR, UNGOL – DATE: 198 – NIGHT
Inside the tower of Ungol, pirates drag some treasure chests. They heave the chests into a foreboding treasure chamber. The chamber is situated high in the tower of Ungol. The pirates dragging the treasure chests into the chamber are watched and and supervised by Captain Orio Flinax and his first mate Boney. Boney looks out of one of the tower windows to see the progress of the battle between the Gren and the Caribbe below.
(to Flinax) “Our ship mates are still battering with those scrawny natives, Flinax! We cannot keep fighting our fight whilst we bury the treasure!”
(ruthlessly) “They shall keep fighting those half-naked men and women to the bitter end! I am not having my throat noosed for the sake of a trial back home!”
“Then shouldn’t we call for our mates aboard ship to teleport us up?!”
“You must know Boney, that Orio Flinax cannot have his treasure buried unless he bargains with the Bullor!”
The pirates eventually store the treasure chests within the dark treasure chamber. They exit from the treasure chamber, exhausted and tired out.
“Your ship mates have stored your treasure, Flinax!”
“No hand shall ever touch those chests lest the Bullor commands it!”
Suddenly, a hideously terrifying and screeching roar echoes from above. This scares the pirates out of their wits, as they fall trembling to the floor.
“The Bullor calls you, Orio!”
Moment of silence, as Orio expresses signs of fear.
(gulps) “I shall make a trade with it!”
(encouragingly) “Let dead souls put you at bay with the beast of the tower of doom, Flinax!”
“Pray let it do, Boney! Pray let it do!”
Orio makes his way up the steps as he heads for where the Bullor waits for him. The terrifying roar echoes again as Boney and the other pirates shudder.
SCENE #4 – INT – CORRIDOR, UNGOL – DATE: 198 – NIGHT
Hours later, Orio’s pirates debate with each other about whether to join their shipmates in battle down below on the Retatif Fields. Boney is also anxious, as he looks outside through one of the tower windows.
(grunts) “I vow that the generator below will keep Flinax’s treasure safe before we leave this accursed planet! I will not like having my throat cut or be on trial for mutiny!”
Orio’s pirates then stir, as footsteps come downstairs. Orio Flinax appears before them, dignified and assured. The treasure chamber close shut once Orio appears before them.
“Flinax, my captain! What did the Bullor say [to you…?]”
(interrupts) “It is done, Boney! My trade has been a success! The Bullor will protect the treasure with its ferocious hand! Anyone who touches the treasure will be devoured by its enormous hunger!”
Some of Orio’s pirates tremble whilst some fear. Orio addresses Boney as he takes something out of his leather coat and hands it to him.
“Take this map with you, Boney! It will help you with finding the treasure should you need to come back here again!”
“I will keep it safe, Orio.”
Boney takes the map from Orio and puts it in his own pocket. Some of Orio’s pirates become intrigued at witnessing this.
“We must join our mates down below, Captain!”
“No! That will not be necessary! For…dead men…tell no tale!”
Orio’s pirates are puzzled, before Orio takes out two phaser pistols and fires them at his own shipmates. The pirates cry out in agony, before falling to the floor dead.
(astonished, grunts) “You’ve left a trail of blood from your own shipmates, Captain!”
“No pirate ever need know we came here! The treasure is mine! And none shall have it!”
(apprehensive) “And me? Are you to kill your first mate too?”
Orio sheathes his pistols back into his stirrups on both sides.
“You have the map, mate! The map shall be held by your hands and not anyone else!”
The battle from outside gets closer as some pirates enter the tower from below with savages behind them.
“Our shipmates! They’re climbing up the tower! I can also hear those savages!”
“We must be off! Hold my sword, Boney!”
Orio takes his sword out from his sheath and strikes it to the ground. Both he and Boney hold the sword tightly as they prepare to beam out. Locking mechanisms echo from the closed doors of the treasure chamber.
“The doors! To the chamber containing your treasure, Captain! They’re being locked up!”
“The Bullor has kept his word!”
Orio presses a switch on his sword which lights up.
(calls) “We are returning, me hearties! Bring us home!”
Orio and Boney eventually beam out as they return to their ship in orbit of Junglos. Moments later, the battle is brought into the tower once Orio Flinax and Boney are gone. The Gren savages kill the pirates violently and a blood bath ensues. They strike them with their spears and daggers.
SCENE #5 – INT – TREASURE CHAMBER, UNGOL – DATE: 198 – NIGHT
Inside the treasure chamber, with the battle between pirates and Gren savages going on outside, a dark figure appears. Salvador looks about the chamber as he lets out an evil laugh of triumph before he speaks in his strong Spanish accent.
“The trap is sprung! Once it is the date: four-one-nine-eight, the Doctor will not be able to outwit against my power!”
Salvador laughs out loud, whilst the battle rages on from outside the treasure chamber. He soon disappears, with things set in motion.
