Ferocious Planet

Synopsis: In the Federal Science Institute, Dr. Jillian O'Hara and her assistant Brian Murphy will demonstrate their research to a commission led by the arrogant Senator Jackson Crenshaw and Dr. Karen Fast from the president office expecting to keep the budget of her laboratory. Colonel Sam Synn is responsible for the security with Lieutenant Rivers and Pvt. Jordan Reid. Dr. O'Hara explains that her machine is the fruit of a long research initiated by her father and can show parallel dimensions. During the demonstration, there is a problem in the device and the room is transported to another dimension with everybody that is observing the experiment. Soon the survivors discover that the room is placed in the wilderness of a dangerous dimension inhabited with wild beasts.

Delta to Command.

Go ahead.

Your special guests

have arrived.

Copy that.

[Shaver buzzing]

[Buzzing stops]

Dr. Fast.

Josh Burk.

Colonel Synn.

What an unexpected


I thought you'd retired.

I see you, uh, dressed up

specially for the occasion.

Hey, is this

the IRS building?

Next door.


Rent-a-cop, huh?

Perfect job for

a man who disgraced

his country.

Come along!

This is quite a crowd.

You nervous

or something?

I get nervous

driving to work.

This makes me


Keep it together.

My neck is on the line.

Decades of work

on the greatest

discovery ever,

and that jerk senator

wants to kill my funding.

And stop that tapping!

Yeah, sure.

He's the jerk.

What's our power reading?

It's 100%.

[Indistinct chatter]

He's here.

I haven't seen you

for some time.

Stay focused.

And no mistakes.

If we convince

the President's people,

this project stays alive.

You almost ready?

Just about.

I, uh--

I really enjoyed

myself last night.

It would've

been better--

Not now.

Not ever.

Right there.

Everything's secure.

I bet you'll be glad

when you're sitting

on your boat,

instead of having to

baby-sit these eggheads

and politicians.

Bad missions are like

relationships, Lieutenant.

They all start great,

but end miserably.

Thank you for

joining me today

for what could be the most

significant scientific

experiment ever.

Today we make history

for two achievements.

The first

promises clean,


renewable energy.

The world's first

cold fusion generator.


Cold fusion again?

I thought that was

a dead fish.

The second

is the culmination

of over 30 years

of research,

which started

with my father,

Dr. Taidgh O'Hara,

back home in Ireland.

After his death,

I continued and perfected

his research.

Ladies and gentlemen,

today we will discover

what mysteries

the universe holds.

For the first time

in history,

we will peer into

parallel dimensions.

Parallel dimensions?

You didn't mention

anything about this

to me.

What you're witnessing now

is a dimension

that sits directly

on top of our own.

My father theorized that

there are an unlimited

number of worlds,

each existing

in our exact location.

And it is for this

that you require

a further $250 million

of taxpayers' money?

How do we know

this is even real?

This is the scientific


that explains the process.

It's been verified by

the scientific community

after extensive

peer review.

Of course, there are only

a dozen people in the world

who can actually

understand it.

And you're not

one of them.

And I don't suppose

any of them are



Uh, Dr. O'Hara--

Karen Fast,

Science Advisor

for the President.

Is it possible to travel

to these places?

Sadly, we can

only see them.

But we've chosen

these dimensions

to show you both

the extraordinary

differences to Earth,

and, as you'll see from

the next dimension,

the extraordinary


Based on our

initial research,

this world shares

many commonalities

with our own.

Any signs of

intelligent life?

None yet. However,

the flora and fauna

indicates an atmosphere

very similar to our own.

Our research shows

that there are billions

upon billions of

other dimensions.

It is a virtual certainty

that intelligent

life exists.


What was that?

Ohh, Dr. O'Hara,

the power's spiking.


The Theta's 88.

I'm just gonna bring

the power output down

to 1.21 terawatts.

Did he say "terawatts"?

It's not responding.

We need to evacuate.




Command to Delta--

come in.

Command to Delta.





Alpha to Command. Over.

Alpha to Command.

Go for Command.


I heard gunshots.

Where are you?

Down the hall.

We have a security breach.

Sweep and secure the room.

Nothing in or out.

Roger that.






You sure?

I'm fine.


I'm fine, I'm okay.

I can't believe it.

They're all dead.

Another one over here.

This is terrible.

Just terrible.

All secure, Colonel.

Colonel! Colonel,

where the hell

have you been?

Just when we need you,

you disappear.

Now, there are people here

who need serious medical--

[All coughing]

I just killed

this thing...

after it chomped off

the arm of one of

your colleagues.

What is it?

What's that smell?


I think it's coming

from the blood.

That's remarkable.

I'm gonna ask you

one more time.

What the hell is this?

Oh, my God.

I think this has

come from a parallel



That's impossible.

Are you saying this critter

came through that machine?

This is hogwash.

I'm getting out of here.


you're gonna stay here

until I tell you

it's safe to go.


assumes quarantine

until I can confirm



Earthquake! Earthquake!

Everybody hold on!

The machine!

Doctor! The machine!



Get in here, boy,


Help us!

We can't let it

get damaged!

Guys, it's slipping!

I want that machine


First an explosion kills

innocent civilians,

then it's the critters!

And now it's started

an earthquake!

What the hell

is it gonna do...


[Rumbling stops]

[Siren blaring]

What are you doing

here, boy? Get out!

I grew up

in California.

That didn't feel

like an earthquake.

It almost felt like

we were sliding.

Ah! Ah!


Ah! Ah!

Doc, what's happening?

I think he's having

a heart attack.

There's a defibrillator

on the wall over there.

He's not breathing.

I need to start CPR.

Lieutenant, Private.


Guard the door.

Make sure nothing

gets in or out.

One, two, three, four.




I don't like

what's going on.

Protocol for an

emergency like this--

we'd put out

an immediate response,

like a quarantine.



Something is seriously

wrong out there.

He's not responding.

I'm sorry. He's gone.

All right,

enough is enough.

Senator, I think,

under the circumstances--

I am out of here.

We should be listening

to the military.

Stay back, sir.

Okay, okay.


I'm authorized

to use force

to stop you.

I would dearly like

to see the authorization

that permits

a disgraced colonel

to shoot a United States

Senator going about

his public duty.

I don't know what

went wrong with you.

You were once a golden boy,

but you brought disgrace

and dishonor to yourself

and to our country.

Now, I'm gonna get help

for these people

before you get them

all killed.

Oh, damn it.

Out of my way, sir.


What the hell

is this place?

Guess he

won't be running

for reelection.




That doesn't look

like the IRS building

next door.

What the hell is that?!

Whatever it is,

it's pissed.

Everyone get back!


We are definitely gonna

need a bigger boat.


Fall back!
