FADE UP ON:
A beautiful field of wheat glistens in the morning sun.
As the camera skims overtop, titles start to roll. Ahead
of us an odd-looking service van comes into view, sputtering
along a dirt road. Getting closer, we can see the driver, a
thin, bookish man with a neat mustache. This is AUSTIN GRIMALDI.
The truck pulls up to a strange Victorian house in the middle
of the wheatfield. The house has several futuristic radar
devices on the roof that rotate constantly.
AUSTIN gets out, opens the van's rear doors, and pulls out
two large metal boxes.
THE ATTIC WINDOW
The curtains part ever so slightly, and a pair of eyes peer
CUT BACK TO:
AUSTIN shuts the van's rear doors, and carries the two metal
boxes into the house. The titles stop rolling as we;
INSIDE THE HOUSE
AUSTIN is reading a schematic diagram as he sits in front of
the exposed chassis of a complicated futuristic electronic
contraption, twice his size. There are strange tools all
over the floor.
Putting down the diagram, he opens one of the metal cases and
takes out a sophisticated-looking glass sphere with electronic
receptacles mounted in the sides.
He places this sphere in a space in the middle of the contraption,
clamps it down, and plugs some wires into the globe's receptacles.
Then he opens the second box. Inside is a glowing green ball.
Using a pair of special tongs, AUSTIN carefully lifts the ball
out, and inserts it into an opening at the base of the machine,
in the back.
As soon as the ball is inside, the machine hums to life. The
glass sphere sparkles, and a holographic picture of a green
planet in space appears inside it.
(looking at the holograph)
He takes a strange tool, and moves out of frame to make an
adjustment underneath the machine. Suddenly a wire comes
loose from the sphere and begins to spark.
Uh - oh ....
As the camera pulls closer to the holograph screen, the
green planet begins to silently shake.
With an explosion that rocks the universe, a huge chunk rips
out of the green planet and shoots off into space, leaving
thousands of glowing particles in its wake.
CUT BACK TO:
Not noticing the silent image on the holograph, he quickly
repairs the sparkling connection and returns to his other
From the forest floor we see the green planetoid fly overhead,
dropping balls. We watch as it moves away and disappears beyond
a far-off mountain range. The forest rumbles as the planetoid
crashes in the distance.
The camera then pans over to a forest patch, where a beautiful
girl approaches, picking mushrooms.
A GREEN BALL NEAR HER FEET
An ominous note is struck as the girl notices the glowing
ball, and is drawn to it. Picking the sphere up, she looks
at it. Something inside her warns her of its danger, but,
unable to resist, she puts it in her basket and continues on.
THE GATES OF KRAAN
Night falls over this futuristic chromoid city as the beautiful
girl passes through the glass gates and heads home.
