  2. 2. INT. AQUARIUMThe Supreme paces back and forth through the aquarium,looking up as the door opens.Mr. Pond and Felix stick their head into the room. THE SUPREME Here for the crystal, are you?He gestures and the door swings open fully. THE SUPREME No please, come in. Have a look at it, I don’t care.Slowly, Mr. Pond and Felix step into the room, the doorshutting behind them. Their eyes find an eerie green glow.Off to the side, a green crystal, palm sized, hovering a fewfeet off the ground. THE SUPREME You know? I don’t think I could possibly overestimate you enough. So please. Try to take it. Just walk right up to the crystal, pick it up, get out of this room alive. MR. POND You’ve got a fine bit of hubris there, considering you’ve seen what my students can do.The Supreme has a look around the room. THE SUPREME I don’t see anything else in here, Mr. Pond. If your boy was able to imagine up something big enough to stop me, he would have. FELIX Look again.The Supreme rolls his eyes and looks behind him. THE SUPREME Yeah? And? FELIX Look. Again.
  3. 3. 2.The wall appears to come to life. A strange shape, blendingin with the environment perfectly, plops to the ground.The Supreme stares. A pair of intelligent eyes blink open.SPLAT. The Supreme gets a face full of ink.It is a massive cuttlefish. FELIX Mr. Pond, get the crystal!Tentacles flash out and ensnare The Supreme. With a scream,he’s lifted into the air. MR. POND Felix! FELIX Don’t worry. I’m instructing it to just hold him. Get the crystal!After a second, Mr. Pond nods. He runs to the crystal. THE SUPREME No!All the fish tanks along the wall shatter at once, watergushes forth from them all.Mr. Pond grabs the crystal. There’s an electric crackle. MR. POND Yeow!The water keeps gushing and gushing. The room is quicklyfilling up.Mr. Pond looks from the water level to the crystal, which isgiving off green electric sparks. MR. POND Felix, the crystal! Give it a box!Turning from the cuttlefish and The Supreme, Felixconcentrates on the crystal.It’s encased in a metal box. MR. POND Felix, what have you learned about electricity and metal?Felix slaps his forehead. Then the box becomes wood.
  4. 4. 3.Mr. Pond snatches it out of the air as the water reachestheir necks.The Supreme struggles to break free of the cuttlefish. THE SUPREME Bring it back! You can’t leave me here! No, no!But Mr. Pond and Felix wrench the door open and burst outinto the hallway. Shutting the door, they run.**********EXT.

  6. 6. 5.EXT. SPACEThe shuttle angles upwards, flying into a swarm of massiveasteroids.The shuttle weaves past rock after rock. Behind them, theBalls o’ Static pelt the asteroids.The shuttle makes it through the field intact. The starsseem to be rushing toward them fast.INT. SHUTTLE MR.
