(The Imperial is seen landing on a jungle planet inside a large rainforest)
Pascal: *Voice* Okay, we're here!
Brook: So the lab is somewhere here?
Pascal: *Voice* According to the sensors.
Sora: Right, find the lab, find whatever they are planning, and stop it.
Cyra: Hey Pascal, is Siri good to watch over the kids while we are gone?
Pascal: *Voice* I'm sure she can handle it.
Pascal: *Voice* Be careful out there. This is a rather dense jungle after all, so they could ambush you from anywhere.
(The heroes all depart)
Terra: *Breaths in* Hmmm this is nice.
Aerwyna: Feeling the call of nature Terra?
Terra: Yep. And..... *Points* The lab is this way. The trees are telling me.
Sora: Lead the way then.
Terra: With pleasure.
(The heroes follow Terra into the jungle)
Brook: Did the trees mention any ambushes?
Terra: No. They say... "The visitors are all in their glass fortress. Problems are occurring there".
Leon: Hm. Sounds like whatever they are experimenting might be backing firing.
Terra: Maybe. Shouldn't be far though.
(The heroes move forward some move. After moving a bit they meet an interesting sight)
Zach: What the??
(Around the area, several dead Gixuts. Most are the blue ant drones, but a couple are purple ant drones)
Niko: What happened here?
Akito: It was a fire fight. They killed each other.
Shasta: Killed...each other?
Sora: Why the hell would they do that?
Cyra: Hey check out this one.
(Cyra is seen looking at one of the purple ones)
Cyra: This one is purple.
Cyra: These drone guys, we've only seen them in blue or gold. Purple is new.
Shasta: But...why kill each other?
Leon: It must have something to do with what's going on at that lab. We go there, we might get some answers.
Sora: Right. STay on guard everyone.
(The heroes all move and follow Terra for a little longer. Suddenly they all hear it)
Azuki: ! Gun fire.
Terra: This way!
(The heroes all move forward. They reach the edge of the forest, and they see a large building. In front of it, several blue ant drones are seen shooting at something that is behind cover)
Cyra: Looks like they're in a fight!
Shasta: ! Hey guys look!
(Shasta points and they spot a purple ant drone in cover shooting at the Gixuts on the catwalks)
Cyra: Whoa we got a civil war going on!
Brook: This is unexpected.
Cyra: Well it's nothing we can't handle! We gotta deal with this lab!
Sora: But who's side do we take?
Niko: WHy not take them all?
Shasta: WHat? BUt we don't know the full story, maybe the purple one is friendly.
Akito: I doubt that very much.
Cyra: Well even so... *Runs forward*
(Cyra makes a fire ball)
Cyra: EAT IT BLUE BOYS!!!
(Cyra chucks the fire ball. THe blue Gixut's see this)
Blue Gixut: !! *Points and screeches*
(The fire ball hits the blue Gixuts in the catwalks, killing them all)
Sora: Nice sweetie!
(The heroes gather up. THey look at the purple GIxut who looks at them)
Gixut:....... *Slowly walks forward*
(The Gixut goes up to Sora and Cyra)
Gixut:.... You... Are different. Seven days of life and I've only felt the desire to kill. But... You... Something about you. Makes me speak.
Cyra: Seven days?
Leon: Wait... HE's only 7 days old???
Zach: We may not know Gixut's that well, but I'm pretty sure they don't grow to THIS size in just 7 days!
Gixut: Gixut? That word. I heard is many times inside glass mother.
Shasta: ? Glass mother?
Abe: IS there a queen made of glass?
Gixut: Queen? No. "Queen" does not exist here. Only glass mother. And others who look like me.
Akito: No queen... Glass mother..... ! Oh my god.
Brook: What is it Akito?
Akito: The lab!
(The heroes look at the lab)
Akito: He was...made in here!
Aerwyna: What does that mean??
Akito: This guy was genetically grown! They are making full sized Gixut drones bred to kill!
Sora: ! Holy shit!
Gixut: Bred? To kill? No. I kill because my mind tells me to do so. To destroy enemies. But the voice said I was not perfect. I wasn't what it was looking for.
(The heroes all look confused)
Sora: Who made you exactly?
Gixut: A name. Throls. His voice spoke to me in glass mother. I call the voice, "father". It liked that. But it said I wasn't perfect. And I was expelled from mother.
Sora: *Turns to the others* Someone named Throls is making these guys. But he said he's not perfect. What does that mean?
Abe: He looks all right to me.
GIxut: I do not know why I was rejected. But I am not perfect.
Akito: Hmm... Maybe he wants something different. Something bigger, or stronger, or faster. Maybe he wants a super soldier or something.
Brook: A super soldier sounds nice, but an army that he can grow in a couple of days I think sounds better.
Abe: Yeah for sure.
Shasta: Maybe we should check it out.
Sora: Right. *Turns to the Gixut* HEy do you know where that Throls is?
Gixut: The... Tank Mother. She is up. Past the broken parts and many of the things like me. I will show you.
(The Gixut walks open to a lab door. He pulls on the door and it opens. The heroes all gather around, looking inside)
Gixut: You flesh creatures are strange.
Cyra: CAn you show us more inside?
Akito: Why not?
Gixut: I was told to wait. To fight should they come. I will not run. But I will not listen to the voice. I'm not perfect, but I have purpose.
(The Gixut starts to walk off)
Gixut: I must wait until called. Released.
Sora: Sooooo do we head inside?
Brook: I guess so.
(The heroes head inside the lab. After a bit of movement, they hear more gun fire)
Akito: ! More fighting!
(At that moment, a couple of blue drones are seen running, but then stop and yell in fear as they spot the heroes. They point guns)
(The heroes arm themselves)
Cyra: Put those guns down if you know what's good for you!
(The Gixut glare as the heroes prepare to fight)
