Episode-14: "The Kromagg Agenda pt.3"
-Quinn could only stare blankly at the view screen. He saw the
hundreds and hundreds of Kromagg soldiers pouring from it with each
passing second. Kornelius spoke, "This is not good. We won't be able
to complete our work with a war going on around us." Quinn's eyes
grew large. "Wade. . . she's out there! I have to go! I'll be back as
soon as I can." "But Quinn, what about the distortion effect?" "I can't
worry about it now. I'll be back I promise." Quinn turned and ran
from the lab.
-Outside in the midst of the war zone, Rembrandt, Wade and Bennish
seek to make their way back to the main hall. "Great, it never fails.
We try to relax a little bit and a war breaks out," Remmy said. "Just
keep running, Remmy," Wade replied. "Guys look! They've got
Mary," Bennish said. Before the others can respond, Bennish has
broken off to engage the Kromagg that has Mary. "Hey ugly!" The
Kromagg is revealed as General Kalis. He turns around and Bennish
punches him in the face. Kalis shakes it off and begins to choke
Bennish. Bennish knees Kalis in the groin (Yep, Kromaggs are just
like humans all right.) and he falls to the ground. Bennish grabs Mary
and speaks,"Come on, we've got to get back to the main hall." She
replies,"Thank you for saving my life, and I know a shortcut." Mary
pulls a small cylindrical object out and opens a wormhole. "Quickly,
this will take us to the main hall." The two jump into the vortex and it
-Rembrandt and Wade could see the main hall entrance. They were
only a few feet from the door. It suddenly swung open and there was
Quinn. "Wade, thank God! I thought the maggs had got you." "I'm
fine , Quinn. We're all fine." Rembrandt speaks, "Bennish went after
Mary. If the maggs didn't get them they should be right behind us." At
that precise moment a vortex opens behind Quinn inside of the main
hall and Mary and Bennish appear. "Glad to see you guys made it,"
Rembrandt said. "Hurry, we have to get back to the lab. I have a
-Inside the Kromagg lab, Kornelius continues his study of the
distortion effect. He hears the door open and speaks,"Quinn, you're
back so soon?" "I'm not Quinn." Kornelius turns around and is face to
face with Colin Mallory, who is holding a Kromagg weapon in his
hand. "Who?" "My name is Colin Mallory. I guess you could say I'm
Quinn's "brother" in a sorts. And you my friend seem to be helping
him in the ills that are plaguing the Dynasty." "No, this distortion effect
is not our doing." "You know, if only I believed you. I am judge, jury
and executioner for the Dynasty and you Kromagg pretender are
sentenced to death!" Colin raises his weapon and fires. Kornelius falls
to the ground and Colin opens a vortex and vanishes.
-Quinn and the others walked into the lab and saw Kornelius's body
on the floor. "Kornelius!" Quinn screamed. Mary went to the body.
She checked for a pulse and breathing and spoke,"He's dead." "Who
could have done this?" Wade asked. Quinn replied, "I'll give everyone
two guesses." "Colin," Rembrandt said. "Damn it! How can I stop this
distortion effect without someone with at least a passing familiarity with
it?" "You'll do what you always do, Quinn, the best you can," Wade
said. The building began to shake. "The battle must be getting closer,"
Mary said. "Then I've got work to do."
-Quinn slaved over the computer console as the battle grew closer.
He raised his head and spoke, "This is unbelievable!" "What is it,
Quinn?" Wade asked. "The distortion effect. It's almost identical to
the properties of the wormhole that are used for sliding. From what I
can gather, it's a more highly advanced version of sliding. Someone or
something is trying to shift this world into another dimension." "Can
you stop it?" Bennish asked. "I don't know." A strange alarm began
blaring and Quinn looked at the readings of the distortion.
"Something's coming through the distortion field." A large vessel
resembling a highly advanced flying saucer appears from the distortion
effect. "Quinn, something's happening. Look!" Wade said. A strange
beam comes from the saucer and blankets the entire world. It changes
from a red to an orange and suddenly the screams of both races of
Kromaggs become deafening. Quinn changes the view to the main
battlefield as the sliders suddenly watch the Kromaggs dissolve into
ash. They are all speechless. The saucer begins to move and suddenly
it is right above the main hall. "Quinn, what do we do now?" Wade
asked. Quinn replies, "I don't know."
