Star Wars: The Trek – Part 3

Day 16

As you can see from the title, this blog is a “part 3” so, yuo’re probably going to want to read part 1 and part 2 before you start. For those of you who refuse to read, here’s a brief recap of what’s come so far. This is a script I wrote 18 years ago combining Star Wars and Star Trek. In part 1, Luke, Han, Leia, and the rest of the main Star Wars gang chased space pirates into a time vortex. In part 2, they met up with Kirk, Spock and the crew of the Starship Enterprise. There was a big space battle that re-activated the time portal. As we re-enter the action, Luke’s X Wing has been destroyed, but the Enterprise has safely beamed Luke, Spock, McCoy and Artoo over to the disabled pirate ship to investigate. Meanwhile Han, Leia, Lando and C3P0 wait on the nearby Millennium Falcon. Yeah, it makes marginally more sense if you read the first parts. Let’s get back to the action…


Part 3

INT PIRATE SHIP, BRIDGE
(UHURA’S VOICE COMES OVER KIRK’S COMUNICATOR.)

UHURA: ENTERPRISE TO CAPTIAN KIRK.

(KIRK PAUSES AND GIVES A SMIRK TO SPOCK.)
KIRK: GREAT TIMING UHURA.

UHURA: SIR, I THINK YOU SHOULD RETURN TO THE SHIP.

KIRK: WHAT’S GOING ON?

UHURA: ANOTHER SHIP JUST CONTACTED US.

KIRK: AND?

UHURA: IT’S THE ENTERPRISE.

McCOY: THAT”S IMPOSSIBLE!

UHURA: IT’S NO MISTAKE.

SPOCK: PERHAPS IT IS OF A DIFFERENT REGISTRY NUMBER.

UHURA: WELL, SORT OF…

KIRK: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

YEARS INTO THE FUTURE.

SISKO: …AND SINCE THEN, WE HAVEN’T HEARD ANYTHING FROM

JANEWAY: THAT’S INCREDIBLE. SO THAT’S WHY YOU PUT IN A
REQUEST FOR THE DEFIANT?

SISKO: THAT’S RIGHT. SO WHAT’S COMMING UP FOR YOU,
KATHRYN?

JANEWAY: WELL, I’M GOING TO BE COMMANDING THE U.S.S.
VOYAGER. WE HAVE TO RONDAVUE WITH A SHIP

JANEWAY: SO WHAT’S COMMING UP FOR YOU JEAN-LUC?

PICARD: AS SOON AS THE ENTERPRISE IS STOCKED WITH NEW
UNIFORMS AND COM BADGES, WE’LL BE DOING SOME
MORE EXPLORING.

JANEWAY: GOOD-BYE JEAN-LUC. TAKE CARE.

PICARD: YOU TOO.

(THEY SHAKE HANDS AND PICARD WALKS AWAY. CAMERA FOCUSES ON JANEWAY AND SISKO IN THE FOREGROUND WATCHING PICARD WALK INTO THE DISTANT CORIDOOR. ONCE HE IS GONE THE TWO OF THEM LOOK AT EACH OTHER.)

INT ENTERPRISE-D, TRANSPORTER ROOM

PICARD: WHERE ARE WE GOING?

RIKER: HOLODECK 3, IT’S BEEN CONVERTED INTO A MEETING

SKYWALKER, JEDI KNIGHT AND MEMBER OF THE NEW

BEEN IN PURSUIT OF SPACE PIRATES WHO STOLE A
DEVICE WHICH CAN TRANSPORT OBJECTS THROUGH TIME.
WHILE WE WERE PURSUING THEM, THEY USED THE DEVICE
AND WE ENTERED CAPTAIN KIRK’S TIME PERIOD.

KIRK: THEN THEY USED THE DEVICE AGAIN AND WE ALL ENDED
UP HERE.

PICARD: SO WHERE IS THE DEVICE NOW?

DATA: IT IS IN ENGINERING.

GINEUS: (NOTICABLY AGITATED) IT WILL NEED REPAIRS
BEFORE WE CAN USE IT TO RETURN TO OUR PROPER TIME.

PICARD: WHAT HAPPENED?

SPOCK: APPARENTLY WHEN OUR ENTERPRISE FIRED ON THE
VESSEL, OUR PHASOR ENERGY OVER-LOADED THE DEVICE.

PICARD: OF COURSE. THE FACILITIES OF THE ENTERPRISE…D
ARE AT YOUR DISPOSAL.

LUKE: THANK YOU CAPTAIN.

(LANDO IS UNFAZED BY HAN’S REMARK AND CONTIUES TO STARE AT BEVERLY. CAMERA CUTS TO VIEW OF BEVERLY TYPING SOMETHING IN HER ELECTRONIC PAD THEN LOOKING AT LANDO, THEN BACK DOWN AT HER PAD. SHE SMILES KNOWINGLY.)

PICARD: ALRIGHT, THAT BEING SETTELED, SHOULDN’T WE SEE
ABOUT GETTING THE ENTERPRISE-A, THE PIRATE SHIP
AND…THE OTHER SHIP INTO SPACEDOCK?

WORF: YES SIR. THE TWO SHIPS ARE IN OUR TRACTOR BEAMS
NOW. AND WE HAVE CONTACTED SPACEDOCK.

PICARD: YES MISTER…

HAN: SOLO, HAN SOLO. I OWN THE MILLENNIUM FALCON, THE
OTHER SHIP.

PICARD: YES…

BEFORE SHE’LL FLY AGAIN.

(HAN LOOKS AT CHEWIE WHO GROWELS AND SHRUGS.)

HAN: SURE. THE MORE THE MERRIER.

PICARD: SO UNLESS THERE’S ANY FURTHER BUISNESS I’LL
LET YOU GET STARTED…DISMISSED.

(EVERYONE AT THE TABLE GETS UP. TIGHT SHOT ON LUKE AND GINEUS.)

GINEUS: LUKE, I DON’T THINK I WANT THIS MANY PEOPLE
LOOKING AT MY WORK.

LUKE: WELL, I THINK IT’S A LITTLE LATE FOR SECRECY
ALEX.

GINEUS: BUT THIS IS MY PROGECT. I DON’T WANT TO SHARE
IT’S SECRETS WITH THESE MILITARY MORONS!

LUKE: LISTEN, DOCTOR, THESE MILITARY MORONS JUST SAVED
YOUR LIFE. AND, UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE STUCK IN
THIS TIME PERIOD FOREVER I SUGGEST YOU COOPPERATE
WITH THEM.

(GINEUS STARTS TO SAY SOMETHING, CLENCHES HIS JAW THEN STORMS AFTER THE OTHER OFFICERS HEADED FOR ENGENERING. PICARD AND KIRK WALK UP TO LUKE.)

KIRK: SO MR. SKYWALKER…

LUKE: PLEASE…LUKE.

KIRK: LUKE. WHERE…OR WHEN IS IT THAT YOU COME FROM?

LUKE: I’M NOT QUITE SURE. WE DON’T HAVE THE SAME TIME
CHART AS YOU.

PICARD: WELL, WHAT WAS EARTH LIKE WHEN IN YOU’RE TIME?

LUKE: EARTH?

PICARD: THE PLANET WE’RE IN ORBIT OF.

LUKE: OH, I SEE. EARTH, HUH? WELL, IT HADN’T BEEN
COLONIZED BY HUMANIODS YET. IT WAS POPULATED BY
LARGE LIZARD LIKE CREATURES AND OTHER VARIOUS
PLANT AND AQUATIC LIFE…

KIRK: HOLD ON A MINUTE. NOT COLONIZED?

LUKE: NOT AT THE TIME WE LEFT.

PICARD: LARGE LIZARDS…YOU MEAN DINOSAURS.

LUKE: IF THAT’S WHAT YOU CALL THEM.

KIRK: THAT’S INCREDIBLE.

LUKE: I DON’T UNDERSTAND…

PICARD: DO REALIZE HOW FAR YOU HAVE COME INTO THE
FUTURE?

LUKE: A FEW HUNDERED YEARS?

PICARD: YOU HAVE COME OVER 180 MILLION YEARS INTO THE
FUTURE.

(CAMERA ZOOMS IN ON LUKE.)

INT ENTERPRISE-D, MAIN ENGINIERING
(SCOTTY, LaFORGE, DATA, GINEUS, C-3P0, AND R2-D2 ARE STANDING AROUND THE TIME PORTAL.)

LaFORGE: ALRIGHT DOCTOR, WHERE DO WE START?

GINEUS: ACTUALLY IF YOU ALL WILL JUST LEAVE ME ALONE
WITH IT, I CAN HAVE IT WORKING AGAIN ON A FEW
HOURS. I…I’D HATE TO BE AN IMPOSITION ON
YOUR TIME.

DATA: IT IS NO IMPOSITION. WE ARE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU.
ALSO, WE ARE ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW YOUR “TIME PORTAL”
WORKS.

(DATA BEGINS SCANNING THE TIME PORTAL WITH A TRI-QUARTER. GINEUS NOTICES AND BECOMES NOTABLY UNEASY. LEIA WALKS IN BUT STAYS BACK FROM THE CONVERSATION.)

SCOTTY: HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA OF SPLITTING
OPEN THE TIME CONTINUIM?

LaFORGE: AND HOW DO YOU CONTROL YOUR DESTINATION?

DATA: I WAS CURIOUS TO THAT END MYSELF.

GINEUS: LOOK THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO ANSWER
YOUR QUESTIONS LATER. I’D LIKE TO GET STARTED
ON…

C-3P0: PERHAPS WE COULD BE OF SOME ASSISTANCE IN THIS
AREA DR. GINEUS. ARTOO AND I HAVE THOUGHROLY
STUDIED YOUR BLUE PRINTS AND SCIMATIC DIOGRAMS…

GINEUS: THAT’S GREAT! I’M THRILLED! COULD YOU PLEASE
GO SOMEWHERE ELSE AND DISCUSS THIS?!

(LIEA WALKS UP TO GINEUS AND GRABS HIM BY THE ARM)

LEIA: (TO THE STARFLEET OFFICERS) COULD YOU EXCUSE US
FOR A SECOND?

(LEIA GRABS GINEUS AND TAKES HIM ASIDE, FORCEFULLY.)

LEIA: WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING?!

GINEUS: I’M TRING TO GET BACK HOME WHILE THOSE FOOLS
ARE PLAYING 20 QUESTIONS.

LEIA: LISTEN, WE’RE GUESTS IN THESE PEOPLE’S TIME.
YOU CAN’T GO AROUND ALINATING THEM. WE’RE LUCKY
THAT WE DIDN’T END UP FACING ANOTHER EMPIRE WHEN
WE CAME THROUGH THE PORTAL.

(GINEUS GETS A LOOK OF EVIL REALIZATION ON HIS FACE.)
LEIA: DR. GINEUS?! DR. GINEUS, ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?!

GINEUS: YES, YES I…I MUST SPEAK WITH PICARD.

(GINEUS RUNS OUT OF THE ROOM.)

LEIA: HEY, WAIT A MINUTE! COME BACK HERE! HOW ARE WE
GOING TO FIX THE TIME PORTAL?! GINEUS!!!

INT ENTERPRISE-D, BRIDGE
(KIRK, LUKE, AND PICARD STEP OFF THE TURBO LIFT.)

PICARD: AND THIS IS THE MAIN BRIDGE.

KIRK: DESIGN HASN’T CHANGED ALL THAT MUCH IN THE LAST
😯 YEARS.

LUKE: THIS SHIP IS AMAZING. IT’S THE SIZE OF AN IMPERIAL
CLASS STAR DESTROYER.

PICARD: EXCUSE ME?

LUKE: THAT WAS ONE OF THE LARGEST STARSHIPS OF THE
EMPIRE.

KIRK: THIS EMPIRE SOUNDS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE

Never to be continued.

That’s where it ends. I’m not entirely sure where I was going with it. I’m pretty sure the Gineus character was going to try and rebuild the empire. I’m sure it’s obvious that he was actually the leader of the “pirates.” His original plan was to “steal” his own time machine and bring future technology to his time so that he could establish a new Empire with him as the Emperor. Somehow the Borg were going to be involved and they all end up back in the days of the Empire. Darth Vader gets assimilated and eventually they’re fighting a Borg/Empire hybrid. Lots of battles, lots of casualties. I don’t remember everybody, but I know Han was going to die saving Leia. Scotty was going to die using the Enterprise-A to ram the Death Star at maximum warp. Just as everything is looking bleak, they figure out that they can travel to the point where Gineus first used the portal and stop him, they can make it so none of this will have ever happened. Somehow they beam Picard and Kirk through the time portal and onto the Pirate ship just as it activated the time portal. Picard fends off the crew while Kirk uses Luke’s lightsaber to destroy the time machine. The resulting explosion destroys the ship. We then see Han on the Falcon and Luke in his X-wing so we know they’re ok. We cut to the Enterprise-A crew laying out the first scene again, this time with no time travel. Then we end on the Eneterprise_D crew doing the same thing.

I’m pretty sure that’s what I had in mind. Pretty lame, but a fun little thought experiment. Well, that was it. Hope the 4 of you who read this enjoyed this little trip through time…into the mind of young Tim Babb.

PS – I have no idea why I called the villain “Alexander Gineus.” Knowing me, there was obvious significance to the name, but I don’t know what it is. It might be a bad homage to Alec Guinness, but why would that be the villain? Yeah, I have no idea.
