Star Force: Fugitive Alien 2
** Tom and Crow are debating what makes something a puppet. Joel quizzes them on a few obscure puppets.
The Mads invention is just some really big noses. Joel’s invention is just a really big head.
The Bacchus 3 is flying to the planet Saysar to find a secret weapon and destroy it. They are taking Colonel Yurulin, whom they rescued from prison in the first movie, back to Saysar as well. The route they need to take will require them to pass near a black hole.
Before they get there, they come apon an asteroid. Captain Joe orders Ken to blast it with the laser.
Rocky, the navigator, doesn’t trust the Colonel so they decide to lock him up until they reach Saysar.
Apparently they pass through the black hole, then the ship stars getting very hot as they pass buy a star. Everyone except for Ken starts getting sick from the heat as well as some side effect of passing through the black hole. The engines start to malfunction and eventually stop working. Colonel Yurulin tells the crew the star is going to explode. Captain Joe has him help Ken with the engines since everyone else is sick.
** Tom’s head exploded while in the theater. Joel has to use a defibrillator to bring him back to life.
Ken and the Colonel start doing stuff to try and get the engines going. The ship is slowly drifting towards the star and getting hotter. Captain Joe passes out, so Colonel Yurulin has to take over the controls while Ken keeps doing stuff with the engines.
Ken is able to get the engines back on line as well as the cooling system but the Colonel is unable to control the ship. He passes out. Ken makes it to the bridge. The Colonel is barely conscious, so the two of them get the engines going and steer the ship to safety. As the ship cools down the crew start to wake-up feeling refreshed.
Bacchus 3 makes it Saysar but are not permitted to land even when Colonel Yurulin calls down to them. Seems they don’t like him anymore. The Saysarians send several ships to attack Bacchus 3 so the crew is forced to fight back. The crew man the laser guns and one by one blast the ships. Knowing they never be allowed to land, Colonel Yurulin tells of a secret place they can set down, the Devil’s Desert. It was rough but they were able to land there.
** Joel and the bots present Captain Joe the boozy action figure.
The crew prepares to head out when Captain Joe orders Rocky and Tammy to stay on the ship. Rocky thinks it’s a bad idea and tells the captain he should stay behind since he is so old. Joe tells him to blow it out his ass, so Rocky shots him with a tranquilizer. While Joe takes a snooze, the crew, minus Tammy, start working their way across the desert. Joe eventually wakes up and in spite of being really peeved at Rocky, signals them to be careful.
They find a security outpost and are able to over take it, killing all the guards. Now dressed like Saysarian soldiers, they continue on their way.
Joe and Tammy move the ship so that the crewmen are not to far away from them. Finally out of the desert, they find the installation where the secret weapon is being kept. It’s surrounded by an invisible security screen. Luckily, Ken is able to leap over it since he is not a earthling. He helps each of them over the barrier. They steal some security badges and go into the underground facility.
After walking for quite a while, they finally get to the massive weapon.
They place timed explosives on the device and quickly leave. As they are making their escape the Saysarian national anthem starts playing over a loud speaker. Colonel Yurulin stops and stands at attention, refusing to move. The others try to persuade him but it no use. The anthem has given him a change of heart and runs back to try and remove the explosives but a guard shoots him dead.
Meanwhile Capt Joe and Tammy start moving the ship closer to the entrance.
The rest of the crew continue their way out of the underground fortress but Dan get captured. The Saysarians torture him to try and get some information out of him. He tells them about the explosives but before they can start looking for them, Ken bursts into the room.
He gives them all a good thrashing.
Rocky and the other crew member make it back to the ship. Tammy wants to know what happened to Ken and Dan. Rocky tells her to get ready for take off. Before they can, Ken comes running up to the ship carrying Dan. Tammy is super thrilled.
** Joel and the bots sing a medley of songs about the movie and the characters. Even Gypsy gets in on the singing.
One after another the explosives detonate and destroy the secret weapon. The Bacchus 3 is barely able to lift off safely. Captain Joe tells his crew how he is so very proud of them. They fly back to earth.
Back on earth, they meet with a scientist that has developed some sort of thing that can destroy the universe, they get shot at several times by some bad guys
and Ken keeps seeing a lady that he thinks is his mother but she always runs away. Eventually Ken catches up to the lady but it’s not his mother. The head bad guy from Valnastar, Lord Halkon, put her up to it to try and infiltrate their crew. Ken decides he must face Halkon alone and finally defeat him. Captain Joe think he will need a little help from him and the crew.
The Valnastar have set up a base on earth so Ken sneaks into the facility and goes after Halkon. After a little back and forth dialog, Ken goes to shoot him but a gaurd comes in and distracts him. Ken kills the gaurd but Halkon uses a sword and disarms Ken. It looks bad for Ken but then Bacchus 3 crashes into the Valnastar fortress. Ken and Halkon do some fancy battling. Halkon throws his sword at Ken, but the not really his mom lady, jumps in the way saving Ken’s life.
Halkon hops in a spaceship and takes off. Ken gets his own and goes after him. They have a thrilling dog fight with Ken shooting down Lord Halkon. Afterwards Ken decides to go back to Valnastar and help rebuild his world.
** Tom and Crow were not impressed with the bad guy from the movie. So they think up some scary combinations of people to make a better bad guy.
