Once, far away, light years,

distances beyond thought,

a great, slender ship

with a tail of fire

slid through the black

reaches of space.

On that ship was Zatine...

a prisoner named Zatine.

Words cannot describe

his evil, his criminality.

He had been captured

by Commander Yaveth,

after decades of search and evasion

in a blood-drenched battle that

claimed hundreds of lives.

But shortly thereafter,

Zatine escaped in a tiny scout craft.

A fantastic escape

from that spaceship.

And soon, he found a hiding place

on the planet Earth.

Zatine was a mutant,

his genes transformed.

A mutant with a primal wish to kill,

but evolved to new psychic

and occult powers.

He used these powers to

spread destruction and death.

In order to find and destroy Zatine,

Commander Yaveth tried many methods.

One of these methods was

an immense army of birds,

trained to hunt and to kill.

But when these birds

did discover Zatine,

he transformed himself into an eagle,

and managed to destroy them all...

except for three,

which survived and wounded

him fatally in the brain.

But Zatine, now dead,

lived on in another way.

Before he was killed,

he mated with Earth women,

procreating numerous children

and thereby transmitting his

wicked spirit and evil powers

through new generations.

Yet the struggle continued

and still goes on.

For Yaveth's descendants

pursued the progeny of Zatine

lest their contamination

spread through the cosmos.

Has it happened again?

Her name is Katie Collins

and she will be eight years old.

San Francisco with

the ball, and 12-zero.

San Francisco with the

basketball and 92 to 86.

They're going to Abdul, and they

converge on Abdul, in the corner,

and Abdul is down!

We are in the closing moments

of the basketball game,

Abdul, our star, we don't know

if it's a knee or an ankle,

Abdul has been a thorn in the

neck of Atlanta all night long.

They have a two order, what that

means, they'll have new money.

They have possibly some

new ball players like Abdul.

Both teams are right now

coming back out onto the court.

We're going to have a centre

court jump. Here we go.

By the left...

And he scores!

Woo-hoo!

Setting up that two-one-two offence.

They will try and work

the ball to the high post.

And they do. To Lane,

who's shot from 15...

Atlanta has scored again,

Abdul still not in the basketball game.

Atlanta has a chance to take

the lead. Prescott past the line...

And he scores!

We have a time out on the court.

We'll see if we can talk with Ray Armstead,

the owner of the Atlanta team.

- Ray, things are going well tonight.

- Yeah.

You're downplaying how

well the team is doing,

not only tonight,

but so far this year... why?

Oh, we've just got a good team.

Well, I'll tell you this. They have done

very well all year, and you have done well,

but we wanna find out what kind of

owner Ray Armstead is going to be.

Well, we're gonna change it from

Losersville to Atlanta again.

- How are you going to do that?

- With an open chequebook.

- How open is that going to be, Ray?

- Quite open.

Quite open. Where does

this money come from?

You do not have a sports

ownership bankroll.

Ray, answer me.

There's no answer I can

give you on that one.

You're going to give us an answer.

Where does the money come from?

You say you'll have an open chequebook,

and you say it'll be very open.

Where does the money come from?

Uh, God.

Now, so far, since

returning to the lineup,

Abdul has shown no ill

effects of that ankle injury

that sidelined him for a couple of

minutes earlier in the basketball game.
