“Hey Chowder! Wake up!”
Chowder opened his eyes to see Mcclane and the others looking over him
“You fainted” said Mcclane.
Chowder rubbed his eyes and looked around. They were in a mysterious room. It was almost completely red and looked alien and unlike anything Chowder had seen on earth.
“Where are we?” asked Chowder
“We’re in the Martian cylinder” said Bulma “You passed out from shock.”
“I’m glad you’re alright” said Luigi
“Yeah” said Yamcha “We all thought you’d died”
Just then part of the back wall of the room started to move upwards revealing a green octopus like creature with big black eyes and a v shaped mouth. Bulma jumped back slightly
“What do you want?” asked Puar
The Martian held up a gun and gestured to the right
“I think we should follow him” said Oolong.
The group did so and stepped out into a corridor that was very much alien in appearance like the cell they’d been in. The Martian lead them through several smaller corridors all of which seemed like a strange alien hybrid of machine and organic form. Eventually they arrived in a room filled with glass tubes. The top of the tubes had pipes leading into some sort of tank. A second Martian stood by the door and two more were operating a control panel.
As the group stepped in, Chowder noticed a figure in one of the tubes. As he got closer, Chowder recognised him instantly.
“Doctor” Chowder yelled. He then attempted to get closer only to get clobbered on the head by one of the Maritian guns.
Mcclane rushed over to Chowder and helped him up. The rest of the group glanced at the Doctor. His eyes were closed although it wasn’t clear if he was unconscious or dead.
The Martians then forced the group up to the cylinders. As they did, Oolong panicked
“Oh no! You ain’t puttin’ me in there!”
He tried to run, only to be stopped by a laser blast at his feet.
Mcclane began to walk up to the cylinder. Right before he did, he grabbed its tendril that was holding the gun and began to struggle with it. The Martian behind them aimed at Mcclane only to be stopped by a flying kick to the face from Yamcha. Its head burst open when the blow connected and various green liquids spilled out.
The two Martians from behind the control panel squirmed down only for Puar to transform into a Katana. Bulma grabbed hold of her and swung it at the martians cutting through them like a slimy green blancmange.
At the same time Mcclane felt the Martians tentacles beginning to overpower him when it suddenly recoiled in pain, revealing Chowder biting the top of its head. Mcclane then punched it in the face which knocked it to the ground. The group then ran over to the cylinder the Doctor was in
“How do we open it?” asked Mcclane
“Like this” replied Puar who then turned into a wrench and struck the glass causing it to shatter
“Hey….Doctor?” said Bulma lightly shaking the Doctor. Shortly after, he began to open his eyes.
“He’s alive!” said Yamcha
He and Mcclane then helped the Doctor out of the cylinder. Slowly he began to catch his breath
“What happened?” asked Chowder
The Doctor told them how he’d been captured.
“They were going to drain my blood you see, Time Lord blood would’ve been really good for them?”
The group looked around. A silence rung through the cylinder.
“So what next?” asked Mario
“We get outta this place!” said Oolong
“No” said the Doctor “First we’ve gotta destroy this thing or else you can say goodbye to this world”
“Ok” said Mcclane “Any suggestions?”
“Self-destruct” said Chowder “They always have them in the movies”
“Oh don’t talk crap!” said Mcclane “I mean these guys can’t be that dumb!”
“He’s on to something though” said the Doctor “If we can find the control room, we might just be able to find some way of destroying it”
“Um…guys” said Bulma “Let’s get outta here before those creeps come back”
The group ran out of the bloodsucking room and into the corridor they’d came from before making a left. After running through the cylinder for a fair amount of time, they realised something was amiss
“Where’s everybody gone?” asked Luigi
“Building weapons” replied the Doctor “When the Martians arrive, they build their robots after they land. I never got why. It’d make more sense to arrive prepared”
“Well where’s the weapons?” asked Puar
Almost immediately after she asked, the group opened a door and found themselves in a large factory room overlooking a workshop. It was so similar to the factory in Elmore that Mcclane and Chowder were getting Déjà vu. But it wasn’t the only thing given them Déjà vu.
“The robots!” said Mcclane “That’s the same thing we saw in Elmore!”
“So?” said Chowder
“So they must be working for Loki!” said Mcclane
Chowder screamed “Oh NO! Oh God No!”
He carried on screaming for several seconds while Mcclane tried to calm him down. After a while he realised that the gang were all looking at him and stopped
“Sorry” said Chowder blushing
“This is worse than I thought” said the Doctor “If Loki’s got the martians on his side….”
He shuddered at the thought.
“Who’s Loki?” asked Yamcha
Mcclane and Chowder explained (with some difficulty) who Loki was and why they were trying to stop him.
“Well” said Bulma “Now we just have one more reason to stop them!”
The group were interrupted by a squelching sound from behind them. Looking round, they saw a trio of Martians pointing guns at them. They’d been alerted by the sound of Chowder’s screaming.
“Let’s make this quick!” said Yamcha who then launched a flying kick at one of them stricking it in the face. It crumbled onto the floor with a boot print right between its eyes
Another one of the Martians fired at the Mario’s.
“Yow!” yelled Luigi as the two of them jumped out the way. They landed on the left and right side of the Martian respectively. Before it had time to react, the brothers jumped on it causing its head to cave in like a mouldy potato.
The third Martian took one look at the group who were advancing on it menacingly and promptly shot itself in the heat with its ray gun. When it did so, a blast of smoke and light shot out from it’s body. When the smoke cleared it was nothing more than a melted mess resembling an overcooked green marshmallow only less edible.
“Right” said Mcclane “Let’s move it!”
“Wait a minute” said Puar “How are we gonna find it?”
“I have a smattering of Martian” said the Doctor “I’ll see if I can read any signs we find”
Navigating through the Martian cylinder was easier than Chowder expected. The Doctor was able to translate the signs and they were soon walking through. As stated earlier, there were very few Martians around, so travelling was pretty easy. After a while they arrived at a door with a sign that said above it (in Martian) Control Room. Chowder pulled the door which didn’t budge.
“It’s locked” he said
“Leave it to me” said the Doctor, producing his Sonic Screwdriver. Chowder asked what it was and the Doctor explained it to him before using it to open the door. The group peaked in.
Inside two Martians were sitting at an enormous control panel. They were so engrossed in their work that they didn’t notice the door behind them open.
“I’ll handle this” said Bulma
She crept into the room, taking care not to alert the Martians. When Bulma got within a few feet of them, She grabbed them and slammed their heads together crushing them into a pulp.
“Right” said Bulma, turning to face the group. She then noticed the group were looking shocked
“What’s your problem?” Bulma asked, slighty angry
“Nothing!” said the whole group in unison who then stepped into the room.
Stepping into the room, the group saw that the panels were covered in buttons, switches and flashing lights.
“So where do we start looking?” asked Oolong
“How about that one?” asked Puar
Looking at where she was pointing, the group saw a large red button on the console. Above it were some Martian words which according to the Doctor read:
Warning! Pressing this button will start an unstoppable countdown which will end with the ship exploding in a massive fireball. Only to be used in an emergency. 80 Tampi fine for misuse.
“Well that’s nice and clear” said Mcclane. The next thing he knew, Chowder was pressing the button
“What’dya do that for!” yelled Mcclane as lights began to flash and sirens began to blare out
“I thought I’d press it like you wanted” said Chowder
“Let’s get outta here!” yelled Puar.
Before Mcclane and Chowder had time to argue more, they joined the rest of the group in running into the corridor.
“How we gonna get outta this place anyway?” asked Yamcha as they fled through the corridors
“The TARDIS” said the Doctor “If we can get there, we’ll be fine”
“Yeah” said Oolong “If”
The next thing the group knew, was that a laser blast had been fired from behind them
“We’ve got company!” yelled Bulma.
The company in question was a group of Martians.
“I’ll stop em!” said Mcclane
“No!” said the Doctor holding him back, “There’s no time!”
A blast sailed over the heads of the group as they turned a corner
“Are we nearly there?” asked Chowder
“Yeah!” said the Doctor “Just keep running!”
Chowder looked back to see the Martians were stumbling after them. They were moving surprisingly fast considering they had to run on masses of tentacles.
Turning a corner, the whole group sighed with relief as the Tardis came into sight.
Reaching the door, the Doctor felt in his pockets for the keys. The rest of the group could just about see the shadows of the Martians on the wall
“What’s taking ya so long!” asked Oolong
“I’ve got very deep pockets!” said the Doctor
As the Martians came round the corner and took aim, Chowder acted without thinking. He leaped onto a wall and grabbed what looked like a fire extinguisher. Then he pushed down on its top nozzle.
Foam blasted out hitting the Martians and bowling them over. At the same time, the Doctor managed to grab his keys and open the lock. Chowder was so busy blasting the Martians he didn’t notice
“You’re not gonna hurt my friends!” he yelled, only to be pulled into the Tardis. A few seconds later, the doors closed and it started to dematerialize. The Martians continued firing at it in vain until it disappeared. They were then vaporised by the cylinder exploding in a massive fireball.
“So where do you guys wanna get dropped off?” asked the Doctor
“Well if you can go anywhere, we’d like west city” said Yamcha “I gotta start training again”
“Training?” asked Luigi
“Yeah” said Yamcha “For the World Martial Art Tournament”
Landing the TARDIS was simple enough. Despite landing in front of a large yellow building in the middle of a busy city, no one seemed to notice. (The Doctor later explained that this was due to the TARDIS’s perception filter)
“See ya around” said Oolong as he stepped out of the TARDIS
“Thank you so much for the help” said Bulma, shaking the Doctor’s hand
“No problem” said the Doctor.
“By the way” said Yamcha “If you ever need help fighting off bad guys again, just give us a call”
“We certainly will!” said Mario.
Chowder watched as Bulma and her friends disappeared into the yellow building
After the Doctor had shut the door, he rushed over to the console and pressed a few buttons. The TARDIS began to make that weezy sound it always made and shake
“Well” said the Doctor grinning “Shall we continue looking for the Sailor Scouts
