~ PROLOGUE ~
Show scenes from "The Voice"
Suddenly Cleo wakes up in the Healing Tube. When she gets out she
completely disregards that she was in the healing tube and...
You guys wouldn't believe the dream I had. The Bailies came together and
Creegan died, and there was this big fight with the Bailies vs. the Shaft
Cannons. Really weird, huh?
Cleo, that wasn't a dream.
It really happened. Don't you remember? You were almost killed! Luckily
your shield took most of the blast.
Whoa. Who won?
No one. There was a retreat on both parties. We destroyed quite a few
Bailies, but they destroyed the Shaft Cannons. There goes our best chance.
Full out war. The Uber-Bailey rests in the sky, firing blasts down into the
ranks of soldiers. The Shaft Cannons fire, taking down Bailey after Bailey.
Hel, in the midst of Betrayers, fires her gauntlet, creating a hole in a
Betrayer's head. She turns, kicks another Betrayer to the ground. A Betrayer
grabs her from behind. She grabs his arm, flips him into two on rushing
Betrayers. Grabs a small bomb out of her pouch and throws it on them. No
Cleo stands next to a Shaft Cannon, watching as a Bailey falls onto a crowd
The Uber-Bailey lets out a string of fire, destroying two Shaft Cannons.
A Shaft Cannon fires at the Uber-Bailey, creating a small explosion. Three
Bailies gang up on it, and obliterate it.
Marla stands next to a Shaft Cannon, shouting orders into a headset on her
head. A Betrayer rushes her. She raises a large rifle and blasts it.
Hel joins Cleo and Sarge at the Shaft Cannon.
The Shaft Cannon fires, obliterating another Bailey. The skies, once filled
with Bailies, has become clear. Most of the Bailies are gone. Hel looks
around. Only a few Shaft Cannons remain either.
Marla, listen to me. We need the remaining Shaft Cannons to fire up at that
super Bailey. Do you understand?
After a moment, the Shaft Cannons all begin to fire at the Uber-Bailey,
causing explosions to rack its mighty frame. Bailies jump in the way of the
blasts, trying to protect the Uber-Bailey. On the ground, the Betrayers
begin to retreat.
Hel, look! They're retreating!
BOOM! A blast from a Bailey hits the Shaft Cannon, and the trio is sent
flying. In the sky, the Uber-Bailey releases a torrent of fire, cutting into
the human ranks.
The humans begin to scurry away, while the Uber-Bailey continues its
destruction. The three remaining Shaft Cannons fire at it, causing a huge
chunk of it to fall to the ground. Finally, the Uber-Bailey retreats.
VOICE(Crackling, then becoming clear)
Hel...Hel can you hear me?
Yes Voice. The receptor must've been disturbed during the attack, but I can
hear you now.
Are you and the team all right?
We almost lost Cleopatra, but she's okay now.
That was one of the biggest battle you've ever faced. I think you did
The cannons are gone, Voice.
So are a number of Bailies. I knew all along this wasn't the big battle.
This was only the beginning.
I don't know if anyone can survive another one of these battles, Voice.
I think so. We'll continue to update our technology into something so
powerful it can destroy the Bailey race.
You know Voice, maybe we've gone about this all wrong. Maybe we shouldn't
Is there any chance at peace here?
Sarge readies her gauntlet.
I know you're here somewhere, Raina! Come out!
Hel, there is no chance at peace with the Bailies. They were created by
Who created them?
~ COMMERCIAL ONE ~
Creegan created the Bailies?
Yes. He's a 500 year old thaw, just like Cleopatra.
Interesting. Voice didn't want to tell me that Creegan was a 500 year old
thaw that created the Bailies. This whole War is because of him. Why then,
Voice did you say that Creegan told you nothing?
Telling you that your mortal enemy was the one responsible for the huge
battle about to ensue would've distracted you. I'm sorry for once again
keeping information from you, Hel.
I understand. So what are the orders? What do we do now?
We need to advance our weaponry and attack the Bailey Command Nexus. There
we can stop the production of Bailies, and then work at destroying what's
Good Idea. Mauser, we need better weapons. Can you incorporate some of the
Shaft Cannon info into our gauntlets? With the added Bailey technology we
got when we met Cleo, we should be unstoppable. And Mauser, don't forget to
raise the Shield Level as well.
What's up, what's going on?
Voice thinks we should attack the Command Nexus. Stop anymore Baby Bailies
from being born.
Ooh, I have an idea! Can Voice hear me?
Why doesn't Voice tell us where we can find the other teams, and that way we
can all get advanced weaponry and team up to take on the Nexus.
That's not a bad idea. I can give you command of all 15 of my teams, Hel.
You have definitely proved yourself.
Me command all 15 teams? Marcus will love that.
Marcus is dead, Hel.
He was killed in the battle.
What is it Hel?
Marcus is dead. He didn't make it back down to the Shafts.
Cleo gets off the healing tube table.
Those Bailies sure are no good Sons of--
Cleo, don't worry. We'll win this war.
Sarge, can I see you in the white room.
They go in there.
Hel silently asks Sarge what it's all about, Sarge shrugs.
CUT TO: INT. WHITE ROOM.
What is it, Cleo?
Teach me how to fight? I am sick of being this nothing, this little blonde
girl who sits around and lets her friends take all the risk.
Cleo, you are not a nothing. You're a very valuable asset to this team.
Look, Marcus was my friend too..sort of. Becoming a Warrior won't bring him
This isn't for Marcus, this is for me. I want to learn how to fight. I need
to. If we're taking on the Nexus, you guys will need me to do more than
just duck and hide.
Right. We need you to stay alive. You're our friend, Cleo. Something my
trainer told me before I learned how to fight was a simple saying I always
remembered: "When Someone fights, someone gets hurt."
When someone doesn't fight someone gets hurt. I'd rather have the ability
Forget it Cleo. I won't teach you to hurt people. You leave that up to Hel
Sarge smiles and exits the white room. Cleo is not satisfied. She leaves
the room sulking.
CUT TO: INT. BAR.
Hel, Sarge, and Cleo enter. The place is loud with "music" as mutants and
humans come together, in spite of their differences and dance and have a
Mutants and Humans?
You see a lot of that on the Sympathy Levels.
What are the Sympathy Levels?
Levels 39-42 of Shaft 8. Full of people who embrace other forms of being
and accept them as their friend.
Oh yeah. I joined this one group back in the 21st that was like this. All
these people came together in harmony. The Blacks and the Whites forgot
about color issues, it was really fun.
What are Blacks and Whites?
Well, I'm glad the racial wars died with the fall of Mankind.
Whatever you say Cleo. Okay, we're looking Voice but I don't see Quint.
He told me that's where his location was.
Hel spots Quint. He walks over to them. Where's his team?
Hey Quint. Where's Porter and Lara?
Where do you think they are? The same place as the other teams.
What are you saying?
You don't know? The Bailies took all the Voice teams to the Bailey Command
Nexus. I got away down the shafts before they started grabbing people, and
I guess you did too.
We have to go after them!
Yeah, it's that easy, huh Cleopatra?
How many teams are left?
Yours. That's it.
Looks like this suicide mission just turned into a Rescue. Let's go. Quint,
you're with us now.
Hel, wait. Quint can't hear this, but I never told him about the Bailey
Command Nexus. Did you tell him? And how would he know that that is where the teams were taken?
Hel aims her gauntlet at Quint.
Hel, what are you doing?
We never told anyone about the Nexus. Quint here wouldn't have known about
it unless he were a...
Quint's arms morph into cannons.
~ COMMERCIAL TWO ~
Afraid So, Cleo!
Quint fires. The team jumps and rolls out of the way. Cleo ducks and
hides, as Hel and Sarge shoot at Quint from opposite sides of the room. The
patrons at the bar all hide behind tables and chairs and anything else they
Quint takes aim at Hel, who's peeking out from behind a wall. He fires,
blowing a section of the wall away. Hel runs, firing as she goes. The blasts
hit Quint, with little effect.
A blast hits the floor next to Cleo. She screams!
Sarge jumps out from behind a table, gauntlet blasting. Several blasts hit
Quint, but does little damage.
Hel flips into the air, and lands with both feet onto Quint's back. She
somersaults to a table and kicks it on its side. Quint stands up and fires,
knocking the table and Hel across the bar. Sarge fires her gauntlet, hitting
Quint in the back. We see some silver break through. Quint turns, firing
both cannons, knocking Sarge into the wall. He keeps up the barrage, and we
see Sarge's shields start to fail.
Cleo grabs a chair and rushes out, slamming it into Quint's back. He turns,
slamming his cannon-arm into her. She flies across the room. Sarge flips
right in front of Quint, aims her gauntlet, and fires. Quint goes flying
Hel fires while Quint is on the ground, then hides behind another wall.
Quint gets up, and fires at Hel and Sarge, who jump around the bar dodging
blasts and returning them.
Shields are gone, I know! Voice, we're in trouble.
I'm sending reinforcements.
The doors to the bar open. All we see are a woman's boots walking in to the
bar. Hel, Sarge, and Cleo watch in amazement at the reinforcement Voice has
Pan up the woman's body. She wears dark blue, with a clear pocket on one
side. Panning up to her face reveals who she is.
Have you gone mad?
Down boy. Why start a fight in this nice bar? Plus this is Voice's number
one team. Why take them on? You must be insane. Go back to the Nexus.
Go on. Leave. You'll never defeat them.
Quint runs out of the bar and disappears in the shafts.
Hel, Sarge, and Cleo aim their gauntlets at Raina.
Is that the thanks I get?
Hel, it's complicated but Raina is on our side again.
Don't exaggerate, Voice. I'm just playing for the winning team. And why
don't you tell them the whole story. How you captured me from Detention and
played with my brain even more, making me not so bad. But remember this,
Hel. I'm not innocent either.
Hel, what's going on?
That's what I want to know.
Raina's with us. She's a good guy.
Wait, what makes Voice think she can trust her.
I have implanted a bomb within her. If she puts you in jeopardy I can
What makes you think she won't get to you like last time?
I have inserted a chip into my own brain. It blocks her PSI Abilities.
Brain. So that means Voice is human.
What do you mean?
I'm just piecing it all together until one day I figure out who you are.
You will know soon enough.
Are you serious?
She sounds serious, doesn't she? Come on team, let's go! Quint is leading
us to the Nexus.
They all run out under the command of Raina. (Whoa!)
CUT TO: SHAFTS.
It's a long rise to the Nexus. Everyone flies up on the web launchers.
I just want you to know that I don't trust you, Raina.
Nor should you, Sarge. I don't really care, I just want to get this over
with so I can live a peaceful life away from this stupid war.
Voice, are you sure this is Raina?
Yes. Eerie isn't it?
CUT TO: BAILEY COMMAND NEXUS
Quint enters. He is met by another Betrayer.
Hello, Quint. I'm glad you're here, we were just about to contact you. You
were a team leader, and therefore have information on The Voice.
Voice tells her Team Leaders very little for situations such as these.
I see. Well, we gave you the Voice chip of the person you were copied from,
so why don't you be a good boy and give it back so we can trace her
If it's me you want, then here I am.
They turn to see Voice! Hel and friends come in just in time to hear the
Yes. Once known as Adela Carter.
That's Hel's last name!
Yes it is! Voice?
Voice turns to look at both parties. The humans and the Betrayers.
Yes, Hel. It's me.
What are you doing here?
I'm doing what I should've done long ago. I'm here to tell you about
everything, Hel. About my choice to start a Rebellion. About marrying the
man I loved..........and giving birth to a daughter I knew who's name had to
be Helen. I'm your Mother.
~ COMMERCIAL THREE ~
What?! You can't be! My mother's name is Regina.
Your Step-Mother's name is Regina. When I went into hiding and became Voice
I told your father to forget about me. I told him to move on and fall in
love again, as if I had died. He did, but soon he found out about a Voice
Rebellion. He knew it was me, and began to work for me. It was decided
that you were to take his place as a Team Leader when the time came for him
to live on the Psionic Plane.
Whoa, even I didn't know this, and I could read her thoughts.
Why didn't you tell me? I thought I lost my mom when I was 5!
You lost 2 Moms, yes. And a father. And for that I'm sorry.
I don't need this. I have my friends, my team, and that's all I need. It's
all I'll ever need. I don't need a Mother. I don't need you, Voice.
It's at this time that the Betrayers make their move. They grab Hel and her
team, and Voice as well. Hel arms her gauntlet.
Hel stops, not quite understanding. Voice turns to face the Betrayers.
Oh, you think you've won, huh? You haven't won. None of us have! This War
is Eternal, because you make it that way! Peace is not impossible! We can
share the world.
The top of the Nexus opens. A huge Bailey (obviously the big boss leader)
comes down to the Nexus. In the Eye, we can see Creegan's face!
Creegan. You're dead.
That's what you think, Voice! And now it's all over.
For me, maybe. But only for me. LONG LIVE VOICE!
How pathetic. All your teams are gone, Voice! And now, after I wipe you out,
my children will invade the Underground. Something that will be much easier to
do now since all the Shaft Cannons are destroyed!
Hel, yours if the only Voice that matters now.
Hel is still confused. She doesn't know if she should run away or take out Creegan. However, whatever she would choose would not be fast enough.
Creegan arms his weapons, smiling gleefully. Voice closes her eyes. Creegan
lets loose a torrent of firepower, and Voice is no more.
That was fun.
CUT TO: LEVEL
Hel and company are led by two Betrayers down a corridor. Suddenly, Cleo
falls to her knees, pretending to be weak. A Betrayer lets go of Hel, grabs
Cleo by the arm, and she topples over, "dead". Hel uses this opportunity and swings her gauntlet around and
fires at the Betrayers. She lowers her gauntlet, no emotion showing on
her face. Cleo gets up.
Not my best work, but it got the job done.
Hel, they just killed your Mother!
No! They just killed Voice. And it's exactly what she wanted.
How do you know?
Why else, after all this, would she suddenly tell me everything? I know
what she wanted. She wants me to be Voice.
Are you going to?
We'll worry about that later. Now what we worry about is the fact that
we're the only team to take on the Nexus.
I saw a Generator Thingy when we were there! Maybe that's where Bailies are
Wake up, you guys! You don't need a team. You don't need advanced
weaponry! You have Me!
You think you can control all those Betrayers?
I can if they think I'm a Bailey. When I was inside the Bailey I learned a
lot. They communicate with the Betrayers Telepathically. That happens to
be my specialty.
What's your plan?
I use my powers to make them see me as a Bailey.
That's going to use up a lot of your powers.
It's going to use up all of them, actually. I won't be a Psionic anymore.
You would do that for us?
Why not? We're a team now aren't we?
No! You're our enemy.
I was your enemy. I'm a good guy now, remember?
Yeah. All right, do your thing. Get them vulnerable and we'll come in and
What happened to peace?
It's impossible. These things were created by Creegan, they're all pure
evil. Sarge, you and I will go in and start firing. Raina can join us, if
she wants. Cleo, you're in charge of finding the other teams and getting
them out of there. But now, we have to go to the lab.
Why can't we just execute the plan now?
I have to see if Mauser found a way to get the Cannon technology to mix with
the Voice and Bailey technology in our gauntlets. Plus we have to get
Raina...and Cleo some blasters for their gauntlets.
Cleo's all excited.
Yes Cleo, blasters.
INT. BAILEY COMMAND NEXUS
On a hologram, we see Hel and her team escaping.
Sir, should we not stop them?
We pan up to Creegan, and we see his Bailey body is being changed.
No. Let them go. I think things are going to get very interesting.
CUT TO: INT. MAUSER'S LAB.
Raina charges her gauntlets. She stares adoringly at Mauser. Sarge steps
Forget it, Raina. He's a robot, remember?
I know. Not even programmed for sex.
You shouldn't be using your powers like that. You should save them, you'll need them
to use against the Betrayers.
Don't worry, I have enough.
Look, Raina. I'm starting to trust you. Don't ruin it. Cause once you lose my
trust...you don't get it back.
I'll remember that.
Hel is with Mauser at the weapons table.
Any luck, Mauser?
Almost. If I just cross these wires...and...Got It!
Mauser holds up the Blaster attachment for a gauntlet, smiles.
All right then, we're ready.
A long beat.
~ COMMERCIAL FOUR ~
INT. BAILEY COMMAND NEXUS.
Raina sits atop the entrance of the nexus where the Bailies enter. She
shoots the web launcher at the entrance to where she can lower herself down.
She sees a Bailey near by and turns on her Jamming Device. She closes her
eyes and concentrates. Then she lowers herself into the large hole, and
turns off her jamming device. To the Betrayers, Raina is a large Bailey,
entering to check on things.
All Pay Attention to me. After the battle, many of us were destroyed.
All the Betrayers tune in to listen. They watch in awe at the Bailey. Hel,
Sarge, and Cleo enter. Cleo automatically sneaks over to the prison cells.
We need to produce faster!
Now we see Raina for real, hovering over everyone, hanging on the web. The
Betrayers still see her as a Bailey.
They start firing wildly. The Betrayers don't know what hit them! Groups
of 3 and 5 are destroyed with just one blast! The cannon technology is
really useful. Raina's powers leave her. She's a normal human again. She
swings on the web before it detaches and she flips over to Hel and Sarge and
joins them in the fire fight. She blasts just like a team leader should.
CUT TO: PRISON CELLS
Cleo finds the lost teams. They cry for her help.
Okay, hold on. Everyone stand back.
She turns on the gauntlet and fires at the lock on the cell. It breaks, and
everyone is freed. Cleo turns around and runs right into Quint!
Quint raises his cannons.
No more Miss Nice Girl.
She starts blasting him, having learned a lot from watching Hel and Sarge.
The next scenes are a cut between the blast scenes of Raina, Sarge, and Hel
fighting the Betrayers in the Nexus, and Cleo fighting the single Betrayer.
The battle is fierce. The Betrayers try to fire back, but the shields catch
the blasts, and they are no match for the Voice Team.
Raina shoots her web at the ceiling, and goes flying over the room. She
drops a grenade into the midst of a group of Betrayers, and they blow sky
Cut to Cleo, pounding the hell out of Quint. He shoots, but she ducks into a
cell. She looks out, and sees Quint gone. She sighs in relief, turns to leave,
only to confront Quint. He fires. Cleo goes flying down the cell block.
Cut to Sarge in the nexus, blasting the hell out of the Betrayers. More pour
in from all over, but they are cut down. Sarge blasts a hole in a Betrayer
point blank, then turns and fires at another. Five blasts hit her shields,
but she turns and fires, getting help from Raina across the way.
Hel stands in the middle, the center point of all the action. Her moves are
cold, calculated. She fires with deadly precision, not letting one Betrayer
Cut to the cell block. Cleo grabs a bar from above and swings up, kicking Quint in the face, then cartwheels back.
When she comes up, she fires her gauntlet. Quint dodges, and fires back at
Cleo. It hits her shield. Cleo smiles triumphantly. She continues to fire.
Cut to the Nexus. Sarge, Hel, and Raina continue to cut down Betrayers like
wheat before a scythe. Soon, only a handful are left.
Cut to the cell block. Cleo is on her back, panting. Quint stands over her. He
smiles triumphantly. He readies his arm cannons. Cleo raises her gauntlet,
and a torrent of energy rushes out, encompassing Quint. He short circuits and
falls to the ground. Cleo smiles.
Cut to the nexus. Hel flips over a Betrayer, slamming both her feet into his
back. She does another flip, firing as she spins. Her blasts hit two
Betrayers, destroying them. She lands next to the final Betrayer. And her
anger rises. She fires at one arm, then the other, disabling him. Then she
lets him have it. Pounding her fists into his face, his chest. She tears at
him, causing his fluids to spill out. She kicks, punches, claws, pummels the
Betrayer. Sarge and Raina watch. The scene becomes slow motion as the Betrayer falls to the ground, beaten to death. Back to regular speed. Sarge and Raina come over
to Hel. Sarge puts a comforting hand on Hel's shoulder. Hel shrugs it off.
Suddenly, shouting is heard from the corridor. All three women turn,
gauntlets ready. But it's not Betrayers that burst from the corridor, but
the freed Voice teams, led by Porter and Lara. They stop when they see the
mass of dead Betrayers, the team standing in the midst. They begin to cheer,
and swarm over the trio. Cleo appears in the doorway, and gives a thumbs up
to anybody paying her attention.
Cut to later. The teams have moved out. Only Cleo, Hel, Sarge, and Raina
remain behind. They stare at the Bailey Reproduction Machine for a long
time. Hel raises her gauntlet. The others follow suit. Hel fires, followed
by the others. After a few seconds, the Unit is destroyed. Hel continues to
Hel, are you okay?
Hel is distant, staring at the puddle of blood on the ground.
Sarge, what have I done?
It wasn't you, Hel. The Bailies did this.
I didn't even try to save her.
And it's exactly what Voice wanted of you. She knew it was her time. And
now it's yours...to take over in her place.
I can't. I'm a warrior. I fight.
You can still do that.
You'll figure it out. I'll leave you guys alone now. I figure I'll start
my own team or something. I have a receptor now, and I expect to be hearing
She smiles as she leaves.
What about your powers?
She just shrugs it off, and exits from the Nexus.
Hel, Cleo, and Sarge stand there, the dynamic in the group changed. It's a
tense silence. From overhead, the Nexus roof opens, and in comes a Bailey
like no other. This one is bigger, with sharper edges, more weapons. And,
oh yeah, instead of silver, it's black and red. The Bailey comes to a rest
hovering over our trio.
Hello, ladies. Glad we're finally alone.
Hel fires at him. Nothing happens.
I'm too strong for that. Don't you know? Didn't Voice tell you? I am
Bailey. The Ultimate Bailey. But don't worry, Helen. This isn't the time.
I won't kill you yet. But just know that I can whenever I want. And that I
won't give up until the Underground is destroyed, and my creations litter
He begins to fly away. Hel, frustrated, raises her gauntlet and fires, over
The blasts just vanish a few feet away from Creegan. His laugh is heard long
Hel just stares at the ceiling, at the sky beyond. After a beat of silence,
Hel turns to face Cleo and Sarge.
Voice was right. This is only the beginning.
Fade to Black.
On the Next Cleopatra 2525: The team takes on Raina's evil younger brother!
