[to Nestor] Cowboy: I'm from Earth. Ever hear of it? [to Gelt] Cowboy: I'm from Earth. Know where that is? Cowboy: [upon seeing Gelt] Well, Shad, who's this? Shad: Do you want your name used? Gelt: My name is Gelt. Cowboy: Howdy, Gelt. I'm from Earth. Know where that is? Gelt: I was born in space. Cowboy: Okay, well, just know that I've always got your back. Gelt: Nobody goes behind me! Cowboy: Oh, you keep a tail light on, huh? Cowboy: [after seeing Gelt blast a ship] Ha, ha! I love watching a pro work! Nell: 30 seconds and counting, Zed. 29, 28, 27, 24, 15, 22... did I... did I say 15? Nestor 1: [eating a hot dog for the first time] There's no dog in this. Cowboy: Uh-uh. Nestor 1: Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, soybean meal, niacin, dextrose, and sodium nitrate flavoring. Cowboy: Yup, that's what we call "meat" back home/ Shad: [after Gelt dies] Prepare a meal unknown (extra): A meal, sir? Shad: Full course. Bury it with him. unknown (extra): Bury it? Shad: That was our arrangement. A meal and a place to hide. [after Shad and Company have arrived on Akir] Cayman of the Lambda Zone: HAIL THE CONQUERING HEROES! Shad: I'm sorry; they must be afraid. Cayman of the Lambda Zone: Afraid of what? Shad: All of you. They're not accustomed to violence, or to violent forms. Saint-Exmin: That's a hell of a note! [as "Hammerhead," Sador's dreadnaught, is approaching Akir] Yago: This is Akir, a planet of stone with a single green spot. Sador: Let's see it. What about their forms? Yago: Comparable with ours. They have a solar technology. No known defense capacity. Sador: Interesting. Let's check that... [to Shad and the other Akira] Sador: ... [shouts] Sador:
Hear me, beings of Akir. I am Sador of the Malmori. I have come with my forces to conquer you. If you resist, I will crush you. I possess a stellar converter, the most powerful weapon in the universe. You cannot resist me. I want your planet to be my colony. Your harvest comes in seven risings of your red giant. I shall return then, and you will accept me as your master. If you do not submit, your planet and all life on it will be burned to ash...
[shouts] Sador: You are mine. [Saint-Exmin has bested Shad and Nell in a dogfight] Saint-Exmin: The Valkyrie are great warriors. In our youth we must leave home, and fight in as many battles as possible, until we have proven ourselves. Shad: Well, you've proven yourself to be a pain in the neck. So why don't you just... Saint-Exmin: Because, all the same, I wish to join your war against the Malmori. Shad: [exasperated] My PLANET is in danger, and you're playing TAG with me! Your ship is like a toy; you have no firepower. Saint-Exmin: It is one of the fastest in the universe. Shad: Still, the Varda teach us that "swift rain is little rain." [He breaks it off with her] Nell: Pretty harsh, weren't you? Shad: You saw her. She was PLAYING with me. Nell: Yes... and she WON. [in Gelt's lair and treasure chamber] Shad: I'm hiring mercenaries for defense of the planet Akir. But food and shelter are all we can offer in payment. All our wealth is in our culture. Gelt: I could buy your planet ten times over with what I've gathered in this room: plutonium, cadmium, quanine crystals... I've been very well paid for my work. Shad: I'm sorry; I've wasted your time... Gelt: NO... WAIT... Listen to the rest of it. I sleep with my back to the wall, when I CAN sleep. I EAT SERPENTS, seven times a week. There's not a major city in this galaxy where I can show my face, or spend my wealth. Right now, your offer looks very attractive to me... A meal, and a place to hide. Agreed? [Cayman's "Zymer" charges "Hammerhead"] Cayman of the Lambda Zone: This is Cayman of the Lambda Zone, calling Sador of the Malmori. Turn around, you over-aged de-generate, and we'll bump heads! Sador: ...Of what form are you, Cayman? Cayman of the Lambda Zone: I am of the Lazuli. Sador: I thought I had the honor of making that form extinct, long ago! I won't fail this time! HERE I COME, CAYMAN OF THE LAZULI! [in "Hammerhead's" "Sick Bay"] Sador: Are you capable of speech? Nestor 2: Yes, quite capable. Sador: And do you have a high tolerance for pain? Nestor 2: Almost none at all, I'm afraid. Sador: How unfortunate for you. So... How many ships do the Akira have, and what are their capabilities? Nestor 2: If I told you that, it would give you an unfair advantage. Sador: This is Frojo, my Third Officer. Frojo is expert at inflicting pain... while keeping the victim alive. Nestor 2: ...It's good to have skills. [after a dogfight against the Malmori]
