Episode 19: Lost But Not Forgotten

Fade in to a Dutch Angle point of view shot of the ceiling
Female Voice:
He's waking up.
Felix:
Whoa whoa whoa easy now, you've been knocked out for a while. Just take it easy, there's nothing to worry about. You're safe Tucker.
Tucker:
Heuh, what?
Felix:
You took a rock to the back of the head. Good news is, we made it back to base undetected.
Tucker:
Back to base?
Felix:
Welcome to the New Republic.
Tucker:
Felix, what the fuck is going on? Where is everyone?
Felix:
Grif, Simmons and Caboose are up at the main compound.
Tucker:
Well, what about everyone else? What about Sarge? What about Wash?
Female:
Um, ah-ah- I'm gonna go.
Felix:
Yeah, thanks doc.
Tucker:
Dude, do not fuck with me right now.
Felix:
We had to leave them, Tucker.
Tucker:
What?
Felix:
Look the Feds were closing in, if we'd stayed any longer they would have taken you too.
Tucker:
No, that's bullshit!
Felix:
That's war, Tucker, not everyone makes it back. You guys put up a good fight. I can see why Kimball wants you.
Tucker:
Who the fuck is Kimball?
Kimball:
I am. Vanessa Kimball, leader of the New Republic and very glad to meet you. I wish it were under better circumstances.
Tucker:
Uh, yeah.
Kimball:
Your friends are waiting for you out near the mess hall. It's just north of here. Why don't you go catch up? We'll talk later.
Tucker:
Yeah.
Tucker walks off
Kimball:
You're not getting paid the full amount.
Felix:
I know.
Kimball:
You're lucky you're getting paid at all.
Felix:
I know.
Kimball:
Are they as good as we hoped?
Felix:
I think so. H-either that or they're just really lucky.
Kimball:
Well they probably don't feel very lucky.
Cut to a sign that says MESS HALL CLOSED
Simmons:
It's a small rebel army, Grif.
Grif:
It's poor customer service.
Simmons:
You were eating everything.
Grif:
I'm an emotional eater, what can I say?
Caboose:
Tucker?
Tucker:
Hey.
Grif:
Sup.
Tucker:
Man, what the fuck is going on?
Simmons:
After you were knocked out, we were taken to this huge cave somewhere beneath the jungle.
Tucker:
These guys live in a cave?
Simmons:
They're rebels - of course they live in a cave, it's hidden.
Grif:
Nah, I'm with Tucker. I was expecting some badass snow base or something.
Simmons:
What? Why?
Grif:
That's what they had in Star Wars.
Simmons:
How is that even relevant?
Grif:
Tell me this is not just like Star Wars. Tell me.
Caboose:
Tucker does have a glowing sword...
Grif:
Tucker has a glowing sword, Simmons!
Tucker:
Man. We're really all the made it?
Grif:
...
Simmons:
...
Caboose:
...
Felix:
Hey. Something's come up. Follow me.
Cut to two fightrs on lookout
Fighter 1:
Dude, I'm telling you. It's them.
Fighter 2:
Whoa. Maybe we're not fucked.
Cut to inside a rebel building
Kimball:
Michael Caboose. Dexter Grif, Richard Simmons, and Lavernius Tucker. The four of you have travelled great distances, retrieved ancient artifacts, brought corrupt men to justice, and bested the most dangerous war criminal this galaxy has ever known. And now it seems fate has brought you to our doorstep.
Grif:
No pressure.
Kimball:
I am aware that you've been informed of our situaition. And I understand your reluctance to help fight a war that is not your own. But we've just received word that the Federal Army has your friends alive and in captivity.
Tucker:
They're okay?
Simmons:
What's gonna happen to them?
Kimball:
We're not sure. But, if they're alive it means they can be rescued. And it means this war may become yours after all.
Grif:
Aw shit.
Kimball:
So... I'm going to make you a promise. If you help us take back our planet, we'll help you take back your friends. And when it's all over you can take our best ship, and fly as far away from this place as you want. I know it's not the best offer, but what do you say?
Grif:
Look lady, I don't know what you think we can do? But I seriously doubt we can actually do it.
Kimball:
This war has gone on for too long. Too many people have died, and our remaining soldiers are young, inexperienced, and scared. But you give them hope. They've heard what you've done, and they will look to you for guidance, they will run with you into battle; they will follow your orders, if you choose to lead them. I can't do this alone.
Simmons:
Sarge is gone, Wash is gone, how the hell are we supposed to do this without them?
Tucker:
Yeah, none of us have ever led anyone before.
Caboose:
Well, not for very long.
Kimball:
I know, but... you just need to try.
Cut to the four of them walking outside to find assembled fighters
Tucker:
Hmm... Alright, let's run some drills.
Grif:
Aw, man.
Caboose:
Aaand, break!
Credits roll. And then...
Cut to Locus talking to a someone via computer communication
Locus:
We searched Crash Site Bravo, Sir.
Voice:
And?
Locus:
The crate was recovered. Intact and completely sealed.
Voice:
Wonderful news.
Locus:
However it looks as if they tried to blast it open. Do you think they knew?
Voice:
Highly unlikely. Report back to control as soon as possible Locus.
Locus:
Are you sure keeping them alive is the best course of action?
Voice:
Do you feel threatened by the simulation troopers Locus?
Locus:
Of course not.
Voice:
Then you will continue with our endeavors as previously discussed. Do I make myself clear?
Locus:
Yes Sir.
Cut to Carolina
Carolina:
Good. I'll be there before you know it.
