When Futurama Meets Starcraft, Part 4
(The Planet Express
crew walked through a hallway lined with cells.)
Fry: So Bender, are you
excited to get an upgrade?
Bender: Shut up, Fry! I am doing this because I need to get beer from the cook.
Leela: Don't worry, Bender, Captain Raynor said that this upgrade wouldn't
deform you in anyway.
Fry: Yea, you may
actually like it.
(The Planet Express
Crew entered the Modification Room. In the modification room sat a
sexy female engineer.)
Andrea: Hi guys, I am Andrea. I will be the engineer who will take Bender's
combat ability to a whole new level. (Sees Bender.) You must be Bender. Don't
worry, Captain Raynor told me to take good care of you. Now you just lie on that
table and I will be with you right the way.
Fry: (Whispers) I wish
I were Bender.
Leela: Pervert! (Leela
Andrea: Oh, as for you
guys. (To an Engineer's maid.) Bill, show them around the lab.
Bill: (Moan.) Yes,
(Fry and Leela followed
Bill out the Modification Room, Bender screams right after they left
the room and the door closed.)
Fry: What is going on
Bill: This always
happen. Here are the cells where we keep all the Zerg we captured.
And there is the washroom.
Leela: Zerg? Why would
you want to keep those nasty aliens?
Bill: The Scientists
said that they are for studies.
Fry: (Looking at a big
red button.) Hey, what is this button?
Bill: (Pinned Fry on
the floor.) No, that button will open every single cell in this
hallway plus releasing all the Zergs. So whatever you do, don't
Fry: Geesh, all right. All right.
(Cut to: Modification
Andrea: So Bender, how
would you like it if you get a larger body?
Bender: Do whatever you
want, as long as you don't touch my antenna.
Andrea: You seemed tense, some Vespene Gas may relax you. (Inserts a
hose into Bender's mouth.)
Bender: What the! (The
hose injected a little amount of green gas into Bender.) Oh yeaaaa!
(Andrea pulled the hose out of Bender.)
Andrea: There, there is
no way that I can work on a squeaky machine.
(Bender lies motionless on the table since his body is totally limp, Andrea
wheels the table into a scanning machine. As Andrea activated the computer and
inserted the last data disk, Fry and Leela returned.)
Fry: So how is the
Andrea: You returned
just in time, Bender is being scanned right now and the computer will
design an add-on for him.
Leela: Add-on, what is
Andrea: It is just an
extension of a machine's body. 500 years ago, add-on is only
limited to buildings, now we have add-on for most of our units.
Leela: What are the
add-ons for the buildings?
Andrea: Nuclear Silo
and Comet Station for Command Centers, Machine Ship
for Factories, Control Tower for Starports,
Physics Lab and Covert Opts for Science Facilities.
Fry: But why do we need
to give Bender an add-on when he is just required to install the Psi
although Bender is a strong robot, his exterior is quite fragile, and
he doesn't have many arsenals besides his gun. So what Captain
Raynor and I planned is to install some weapons onto Bender to
protect himself and the Psi Disruptor. Plus assist us on missions.
(Fry and Leela look at each other, concerned. Andrea chuckled.)
Andrea: Bender is a
convicted felon and has a violent nature! Oh don't worry, you
can deactivate and detach his add-on with this remote control. (Toss
Leela a remote control.)
Leela: How did you know
that Bender is a convicted felon? Bender doesn't often tell
strangers about his criminal record? Did you hack into his CPU during
Andrea: And Fry is
wondering why can I predict what he is going to say.
Fry: Exactly, how did
you do that? Oh I know, you are…
Andrea: A Ghost, you got it! I am also one of Hyperion's chief engineers.
I also specialize in hacking into Computers, but I didn't hack into Bender's brain.
Leela: Ghost? You look
alive to me. (Trying to touch Andrea but missed.) Wait, I can't
feel you, or is that my poor depth perception again.
Fry: It is your depth perception, Leela.
Andrea: The full name
of Ghost is Ghost Espionage/Counter Intelligence Agent.
We are called the Ghost because of our combat ability on the
battlefield. We have the signature abilities to Cloak and Calldown
nuclear strikes, fire many unique missiles out of our rifles, and
attack in high speed. All while our enemies don't even knew we
were there. See any parallel between Ghost and Ghosts from
Leela: I see, wait
cloak? Are all Ghosts on this ship as kind and friendly as you?
Andrea: Afraid that
someone may look at you while bathing? Don't worry, our ship
have detection devices in every corners incase Dominion Ghosts
infiltrated our ship. And thanks for saying that I am kind and
(The loading box on the
computer screen reached 100%. A second later, a 3D version of Bender
is shown on the screen, attached to him is his add-on. It somewhat
resembles a hockey suit, with two machine guns on each arm, four
wings on his back, and a flamethrower on his right arm. Bender does
look larger with this add-on.)
Fry: Wow, it looks like
that the Zerg is in trouble.
Leela: So when is
Bender going to come out?
Andrea: I say it may
take a couple of days, well it is getting late we getter get to bed.
Leela: All right, see
Fry: Good night.
Hyperion's hanger, Fry and Leela are running through it.)
Fry: Can't you
believe it Leela, we are being assigned into a special unit.
Leela: Well, at least
Captain Raynor still allows me to do something.
Fry: Which Dropship
are we assigned to again?
Leela: According to our
Combat Suit, our Dropship's name is Kamikaze!? (Leela's
Fry: It could just be a name and Zapp is 60,000 light years away. (Fry looked
Leela: (Saw Kamikaze)
There is the deathshi-, akk, I mean Dropship.
(Once Fry and Leela
stepped onto the Dropship, they saw Andrea and another Ghost.
They are all in their Ghost Combat Suit.)
Andrea: Hey, Fry and Leela, we meet again.
Fry: You got assigned
into this suicide mission too! Who is going to finish Bender?
Andrea: The ship's name freaked you out? (Laugh) Don't worry, some Dropships
have stupid names like this. I promise that before I die, I will finish Bender,
Leela: So we are not
going to crash this ship, are we?
Andrea: Who is going to
use a ship as a flying bomb? (Andrea looked at Leela in a puzzled
look.) Zapp Brannigan, heh. Don't worry, I am not going to say
(Leela sigh in relief)
Fry: So Andrea, what is
Andrea: Plug in and
Voice: Troops, your
mission upon Moria is to liberate their capital city from the Terran
Dominion and destroy the Dominion base. Kel-Morian Combine resistance
forces will provide you with additional support and backup.
Leela: What!? We are
going to kill human being?
Voice: Our objective is
to assist the Kel-Morian Combine resistance forces to defeat the
Dominion Army, liberate the capital city, and destroy the Dominion
base. Siege Tank Division 5 and 6 along with Marine and Firebat
division No. 1, 2, and 3 will rendezvous with Kel-Morian resistance
forces to confront the Dominion Army, Marine and Firebat division No.
5 and 6 will work with Goliath division No. 2 to take the capital.
Ghost Division No. 1 will assault the Dominion base. Further
briefing for Ghost Division No. 1 from Lt. Andrea Versailles.
Andrea: Yes Fry, we are
the Ghost Division No. 1. Our plan is to use Nuclear Missiles
to destroy the base and get in and out of the Dominion frontline with
Vultures. And you and Leela will be driving it.
Fry: You predict what I am going to say again. Wait, I am going drive a Vulture?
Ghost01: Just want to
mention this before we are being dispatched, we are going to stage a
crash so that the Dominion base defense will think that we died and
decrease their defenses.
Andrea: Our plan is
that we placed a flare outside the Dropship and ignites it
above the Dominion base, and then our brilliant pilot, Lt. John Simon
(Ghost01 waved.) will purposely let the ship spin out of control to
fake a malfunction. He will then fly toward a forest near by to drop
us off, and we all will speed away from the “crash” site
with those Vultures after we destroy the ship with explosives.
Fry: Wow, I would never
have though of a plan like this.
Leela: Andrea, I am not really sure that I can complete this mission. I just
don't know about killing humans.
Andrea: Look, Leela, I too have hard time pulling the trigger on my first mission,
but once you understand that you are killing for a good cause. You will feel more
Leela: Killing for a
good cause, what cause!?
Andrea: Liberating a
peaceful planet from the greed of the Terran Dominion.
Fry: Try being a little
more impulsive, Leela. Didn't you remember how a killer you
were when we first used the “What If?” Machine?
Leela: You want impulsive. OK, Fry, you will have an impulsive Leela!
John: That's the
Fry: Andrea, I got a
question. Is Arcturus Mengsk still alive?
Andrea: Yea, he is
alive all right.
Fry: Please don't
tell me he too is a head in a jar.
Andrea: No. But he is a
head on a tank.
John: Control Room,
this is Lt. John Simon, are we clear for take off?
Control Room: This is
Control Room, you are clear for take off, Lt. John Simon.
(With the push of a few buttons, Kamikaze took off and flies toward Moria.)
