Synopsis: In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage, run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group in question plays a hockey based game on roller skates and is quite good. It has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.

Get back, get back!

Programming assembly has been called.

Appear with enthusiasm

for programming assembly.

It's my drinking ration.

You like it here.

It's quiet.

That's the difference between us.

I don't like quiet.

Yes, I know.

Why do you let them go beyond the walls?

It's good for morale.

It lets them feel they're getting away

with something.

And after all, there is no chance of escape.

The nearest uncontrolled water

is 100 miles away.

- I want them punished for it.

- All of them?

I saw only Solarbabies.

Were they winning?

Odd name for a skateball team,

don't you think?


Soft. No menace.

Why do you suppose they chose it?

They don't seem to need

anything more menacing, do they?

They always seem to win.

But you needn't worry.

They'll be properly punished.

They called themselves "Eco-warriors."

"Eco," taken from what?


Hey, if they took it,

they should give it back.

Tutor Nover,

I would like to see Jason, Metron, Rabbit,

Terra and Tug

on the dog block immediately.

- Looks like trouble.

- Busted.

Sundown for the Solarbabies!

This orphanage is dedicated

to producing useful members

of the E-Protectorate.

I will not run it as a prison.

- Do you understand that?

- Yes.

Yes. Then why did I have a Strictor

from the E-Police Maiming Squad

in my office this morning?

- We were challenged by the Scorpions.

I'm sure you were.

But you could have taken the challenge

here in organized play.

- They wanted the outside arena.

Of course they did.

There are no rules at the arena.

Now understand something.

My power ends at the walls.

Outside, it's the Strictors' world.

There is nothing out there. Nothing.

Stick with us.

Learn to serve order

and you'll achieve a decent lifegrid.

- Let them do 10 cubic meters.
