You were the, uh... Wait I'll think of it...
I repeated the computer. "It's getting hotter, Commander!" "The
ship is disintegrating, Commander!" Nothing I did EVER affected
the plot, not ONCE! Nothing I did was ever taken seriously!
Excuse me. I'm an African American playing a nine year old

Suddenly the rear stage doors open and JASON NESMITH ("The
Commander") strolls in, all exuberance and charm.
My friends, your Commander has arrived!... Am I too late for
Alexander's panic attack?...(looks at Alex) Apparently so.
(inspects a mole on Alex's neck) That's irregular, you should

Speaking of which... Gwen, you look spectacular.
(they all glare at him)

Commander carries the LIMP BODY OF HIS ADVISOR, LAZARUS, ray guns
erupting around him... On the command deck the crew fights a
space battle with crack precision TEAMWORK...

developed the same affection for the crew of the NSEA PROTECTOR
that the crew had for each other... These weren't just
adventurers exploring space, these were friends...
6BACKSTAGE - The others surround JASON, fighting.
