TANKED GUILDSMEN #1

The Bene Gesserit witch must leave.

--

The Emperor looks to the Reverend Mother.

EMPEROR:

Leave us.

REVEREND MOTHER:

Yes, my Lord.

EMPEROR:

(after she has gone)

We are alone...

8. INT. HALLWAY - EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

The Reverend Mother enters through doors and takes a

seat on a chair just outside the door. She closes

her eyes.

9. INT. THRONE ROOM - EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

Inside the Emperor's chamber, the TANK-SUITED

GUILDSMEN are arranging themselves in a "V"

formation around the box. Suddenly the box opens,

slowly and beautifully revealing a huge, thick glass

tank. Inside the tank floats a THIRD STAGE NAVIGATOR

twenty feet long, much like a cross between a pasty,

pale human being and a fleshy grasshopper.

The tank is filled with swirling orange spice-gas,

and Guildsmen continuously vacuum up the toxic

chemical spills dripping from under the tank.

Suddenly the Guild Navigator swims towards the

Emperor. His head is enormous and fleshy, like a

huge grasshopper head -- the eyes are totally deep

blue. His voice is a high, fleshy whispering and an

intricate electrical apparatus in the front of the

tank translates into English and broadcasts it into

the room.

NAVIGATOR:

We have just folded space from Ix...

EMPEROR:

(extremely nervous)

Yes?... How was your journey?

NAVIGATOR:

(after a long pause)

Many machines on Ix... new machines.

EMPEROR:

Oh yes?

--

NAVIGATOR:

Better than those on Richesse.. You are

transparent... I see many things... I see

plans within plans.

EMPEROR:

Is there a problem?... Usually there is a

problem when one of you makes a visit.
