TEASER


FADE IN:


1 EXT. WADI STREETS – EARLY EVENING

We pick up exactly where we left it last time. JAKE, NOG and RENA have run into crew from the Even Odds – captain DEZ, first officer FACITY, and a human-looking teenage girl of about 14, named MEERA (who we haven’t seen before).

All are very surprised to see each other. But before they can explain, they are all surrounded by Wadi police, armed and ready to use it. Inspector MUNAD is in charge, pointing his weapon right at Dez.

MUNAD
Zin Dezovrim, Facity Sleedow...
You’re under arrest.

Dez and Facity grit their teeth – caught.

JAKE
Wait – Inspector, this must be
a mistake. Dez isn’t –

MUNAD
Do you know each other?

JAKE
Yes.

DEZ
No.

They stare at each other. Jake is offended – why would Dez deny knowing him? Dez’s eyes are pleading with Jake to stay out of it.

MUNAD
Do you want to try that again?

No-one knows what to say. Nog and Rena are on edge, not sure what’s going on. Dez and Facity are tense, ready to move at a moment’s notice.

MUNAD
I find this very interesting.
You kids say you’re from the
Federation, a supposedly good
and just society. You fight so
hard to get your ship back. You
act so innocent and righteous.
And then it turns out you’re
such close friends with the
most notorious criminal gang
in the sector that you’ll
try to defend them to me.

FACITY
“Notorious”? I like the sound
of that.

Dez shoots her a look. But Jake has figured this out now.

JAKE
It was you? You’re the ones
who were going to buy our ship
from Lebikow?

FACITY
Your ship?

MUNAD
Don’t bother acting surprised,
Mz Sleedow. You provided your
old friend and colleague Mister
Lebikow with the codes to break
into the ship, after all.

DEZ
Jake, you have to believe me,
I had no idea you had anything
to do with this. What are you
even doing here?

NOG
(breaking in)
We were on a road trip.

FACITY
A road trip?

RENA
What does it matter what we’re
doing here? We’re not the ones
being arrested.

MUNAD
That’s still to be determined,
young lady.

Under all of this, the young girl Meera is gazing at Nog, curiously, as if trying to place his face. Meanwhile, all the Wadi police keep their eyes peeled, their weapons drawn. It’s a very tense situation.

DEZ
Leave them out of it. They’re
innocent.

MUNAD
A heart, Dez? Maybe you’re not
as tough as the stories would
paint you.

DEZ
You don’t know anything about
me, Munad.

MUNAD
Well, now I’ll have plenty of
time to learn. Boys...?

Dez and Jake both tense. Dez looks to the girl at his side.

DEZ
Meera...

The girl smiles smugly, and MORPHS. Her entire shape shifts into a ball of golden goo, shooting out arms of protoplasm lightning fast. She whips the guns from the police’s hands and knocks them all in the heads. In seconds, they’re all unconscious on the ground. Then she reforms into the girl.
Jake, Nog and Rena all gasp in surprise.

NOG
A changeling...

Dez looks at Jake, a bit embarrassed and guilty about all this. But Jake is only glaring at him accusingly. Dez speaks into a wrist-comm...

DEZ
Dez to Even Odds. Get us out
of here, now.

FACITY
Good to see you again, Jake.
Take care of yourself.

And then the transporter signal takes them. They’re gone. Jake slaps his own combadge.

JAKE
Sisko to Rio Grande. Prynn, beam
us up, and get ready to leave.

PRYNN (comm)
What’s going on?

JAKE
Look for a freighter breaking
orbit – we’re following them.

Jake is pissed. Nog and Rena are mostly just confused. And then the transporter takes them too.

Ending on the unconscious bodies of Munad and his men...
