Well, here's chapter one, and I know it's so short it seems like it's not eve a chapter.. Deal with it, and I hope you enjoy the work of someone who gets 3s on her writing tests   roll eyes

Futurama: Master Kidnappster

Chapter One
Part One


   You walk into a room, entering the Planet Express lounge, seeing a lobster-like creature. "I should warn you, I'm a mean drunk!" states Dr. Zoidberg. Dr. Zoidberg isn't your typical lobster though. For one, he can talk, and the only thing that makes him look like a lobster at all is his color and his shell. " So I've noticed.." stated Professor Zoidy, a tall girl about five foot six, who always wore the same purple tanktop every day. Bender, a former bending unit, walked in, quite impatiently, awaiting the moment to leave. " Hurry up! Let's go get hammered already!" "Ok ok, keep you head on, we're going already!" said Reyna, a girl about five feet in height, who was constantly talking nonstop, rather annoyed. The three walked out of the lounge and down the hall to the conference room, and walked through it, Fry accidentally ran into Professor Zoidy. " Oh, sorry Professor Z. I didn't see you there," said Fry with a slightly joyous tone to his voice.  "You seem happy today. Did you get to make out with that radiator woman again?" Professor Zoidy asked curiously. "No..." Fry said, a little less enthusiastically. "Well, whatever the case, why not come with us to get hammered?" Professor Zoidy asked the young delivery boy. " Ok. I've got nothing better to do." Fry said, happy to be included in this trip, especially since he usually ended up messing something up somehow on every delivery mission, or any trip for that matter.
   Fry wasn't the smartest person Professor Zoidy knew, but he had always been sweet, and really cared for her. He even saved the universe once from large, evil brains with his mind, and Professor Zoidy admired that a lot. He had red-orange hair that had two large spikes in it that smelled like starship fumes, but none the less, still seemed to stay perfectly in-tact, no matter how much happened to it.  "Well, if any of you plan on leaving today, come on," Leela said to the crew.  Leela was a one-eyed cyclops with purple hair, who always wore a white tanktop with black pants and black boots. She was captain of the Planet Express delivery ship, and flew brilliantly, despite her depth perception problem. "Where's the Professor? He usually likes coming along one these kinds of trips." Bender said aloud. "He's talking a nap and I don't think.." started Leela, but Bender cut her sentence short. " I'll go get him then. Professor, get your lazy ass in here already!"
    After many more minutes of waiting for the 170 year old man, Bender dragged the Professor behind him, still asleep, and snoring quite loudly.  Everyone boarded the massive, green Express ship, and Leela took off, Fry counting down before she did, why he did this though, Leela had no clue.

If you found any errors, I haven't read it over in a while, so please tell me. This is basically a rough draft.

Haha! is this just you playing out a fantasy?

It looks good so far! This seems to be introducing everything so I'm waiting for the rest to come along.

A hint from my english teacher through me: work on your paragraphing. Put new speech on a new line etc, etc.

Good luck with the rest!

Yes, thanks Jim. It might have been a fantasy of mine....   wink Sometimes my paragraphs star with dialouge, but now and then they don't. It evens things out so you aren't too confused. The way I write, I bet it'd confuse the crap out of you, seeing as how in real stories they do that, at least to me.. also, this has been sitting in my harddrive for months, awaiting finish.. I finished it the other day. I may post pictures that relate to the story.

Well, as promised, chapter 2.

Chapter 2
The Drunken Idiots

   The Planet Express ship soared through space effortlessly, and within twenty or so minutes, it landed in the parking lot of the Hip Joint, a restaurant that had people wearing retro clothing among other things. This was a place the crew hit quite often after missions to eat or if they felt like getting a really good martini. After making sure the ship was off and had been securely locked to make sure nobody could fly off with it, like Fry and Bender had countless times for pure merryment, everyone slowly decended the ship's stairs down to the ground and walked into the building. Music could be heard from outside, and you could see people dancing to the beat waiting to get in. Leela had always been able to get around these lines, as did the rest of the crew, since she usually brought some kind of "package" she claimed needed to be delivered. Once inside, Bender rushed to the bar and immediately ordered his own martini, while we all waited for Fry to catch up. His foot apparently got caught on one of the table's table cloths, and he was trying to get it untangled, without any luck. " Stupid table cloth..." Fry said angrily, mumbling something else nobody could hear.
   It had taken Fry around five minutes to finally free himself completely, but he managed. Reyna, who had walked away from the rest of us out of Fry's stupidity, seemed to be enjoying herself with Bender. She walked back over to the crew, stumbling a little, and said in a rather drunk way, " That was...fu..nny...hah hah hah! You.. outta be a... comedian or somethin'," falling over afterwards with a hiccup. " Ok, somebody's had a bit too much alcohol for today," Professor Zoidy said to Reyna, who was laughing in a profoundly drunken way, even when she had gotten back up and stumbled over a chair on her way out the door.
   "Let's roll. It's getting dark, and we have to fly around weird planets at night if we don't get out of here now." Leela said, shivering slightly at the thought. "Why don't I drive everyone home? I know how to fly the ship, and gives you a break. You seem leery about flying this late." Professor Zoidy said to Leela. "You're right, maybe I should let you drive,"  Leela replied a moment later after thinking about it. Professor zoidy pulled Fry aside to talk to him. " I want you to stay in the turret for the rest of the trip home. If you see anything, just call me on the vidcom, and I'll take evasive action." Fry nodded, a slightly excited glare in his eyes. He was very good at shooting down any enemy within firing range of the laser. He was the only one who could keep focused, simply because he could see space out of the clear glass and it was always an adrenaline rush when something needed to be shot at. Fry quickly climbed up into the turret just as Professor Zoidy sat down in the captain's chair to run a system check. "...Engines fully functional, let's roll!" Zoidy said as she started the ship's engine and took off, the Hip Joint now just a blur wizzing by the ship's massive windshield and  side windows. Five minutes passed since they left, and already Zoidy knew why Leela was so reluctant to fly. Many gangster planets were in this section of the universe in which the re-directed spaceway route back to Earth.
   The ship's lights flickered a little, startling everyone aboard. " What the hell was that?!" Bender asked, nearly screaming. " I don't know, but it can't be good whatever it is. Bender, get Leela up here now. I'll need all the help I can get to figure this out." Professor Zoidy said, almost frantically. Dr. Zoidberg popped into the main section of the ship from what seemed to be out of nowhere. " How did you get here?" asked Fry, who was thoroughly confused now. " I've been here the whole time in the cargo bay... It's my home!!" The poor lobster burst into tears, and Professor Zoidy couldn't help smiling. She walked over to him and gave him a hug and quickly let go after everyone started to stare. "What? Is it a crime to hug a lobster around here?" Zoidy asked with a small bit of angry disbelief in her voice. " Well, no, but you don't go around seeing me hugging a jerk," Bender stated in his usual crabby tone. "Anyways, back to the topic of what happened to the ship. You have any ideas Leela?" the curious Zoidy asked, since she hadn't been flying as long as Leela had, or the rest of the crew for that matter, except Reyna. " Well, it's possible something hit our ship on the way, or maybe it's a computer malfunction." Leela said, trying to be as calm as possible when she stated this to Zoidy. " I highly doubt that. It's the future. Computers aren't like what I'm used to. Besides, I checked the system a few minutes before that, and all was well." Professor Zoidy said, rather anxious. By that point, the whole crew was scared and bewildered at the same time. " I'm going to the engine room and cargo bay to check if anything happened that may be linked to this." Leela said, nervously. " I'll go too. Bender can fly the ship if necessary." Professor Zoidy said.

@Manwich: Thanks for the complements on my avatar.

Edit: Never really noticed it's second person. I may seem to go between persons at times, but I don't really think it does,  and this is the way I've always written...

Very good. I have to say, I preferred it to the first chapter. But starting is always the tricky part.

Well, yes, it really has been sitting in there for months, me coming up with bits, and some of it lack of good stuff to write, makes it take a long time, and BTW, I drew something today, so expect to see it sometime this evening or tomorrow.. now for chapter 3...

Chapter 3
 Fears of a Captain


   The Professor, also known as Professor Farnsworth, sat in one of the vacant chairs in the ship's main section, snoring away. Usually, Leela would have asked Farnsworth about the ship's problems and how to fix them if she didn't already know, but once asleep, it was nearly impossible to awake him.

* * *
   
   Leela and Professor Zoidy slowly made their way towards the engine room, taking a flashlight just in case the power went completely out. The ship seemed to have an eerie feel to it as they made their way to their destination. The ship's lights flickered again, this time, though, they went completely out for about ten seconds, and came back on. " Uhh, on second thought, why don't we check the cargo bay first? That way, we can escape if we need too." Professor Zoidy said, clearly more freaked out now than she was five minutes before. Leela agreed wholeheartedly with this idea, and led the way down the narrow hallway towards the cargo hold. They stopped at the door, which slid open, almost completely silent, and they walked in, leery of their surroundings, and the setting it created. The two walked slowly around the entirety of the cargo hold, finding nothing but the boxes Fry and Bender used to play chess on, and packages that needed to be delivered later that week.
   They soon walked back out into the hallway, the door opening once again to let them pass through, and shutting with an assuring thump on the steel floors. As the two walked once again towards the engine room, Leela accidentally tripped over her own two feet. She let out a small "ouch" and Zoidy, distracted, ran head on into a nearby wall. Professor Zoidy shook her head, halfway embarrassed that she'd done that. She helped Leela up off of the floor and they continued their walk, which ended a few moments later at the engine room doorway. They walked in, the smell of smoke and oil hanging in the air. It was absolutely silent, all except the fire burning the dark matter fuel needed to power the ship. Everything was fine, but it made the two even more uneasy that it wasn't something onboard causing the disruptions. " Well, I think we'd better get back up to the rest of the crew and see if they're ok." Professor Zoidy said, not noticing she nearly yelled it out. Leela nodded, and they both bolted down the hall.
   They quickly reached their destination, Professor Farnsworth, now plainly awake. Everyone was tense, awaiting the report of something terrible. " Nothing was wrong onboard. I suspect there may be a disturbance outside the ship causing this." Professor Zoidy said to the crew. Farnsworth stood up and started to pace, thinking about the report that was just said. Even he had no explanation after pondering for about twenty agonizing, silent minutes. " Great, so now I'm trapped here with all you meatbags, about to power down completely because of lack of booze. It always ends this way! Make the robot do all of the work, and then kill him afterwards!" Bender yelled, while pulling out a cigar to smoke. He started mumbling to himself as he lit his cigar and walked to his quaters, which he shared with Fry on the ship. Leela sat down in the captain's chair and took the wheel, and changed the direction they were going. The lights flickering had made everyone forget that the ship itself was still flying. They were running out of fuel, and they would eventually have to find a place to rest, since food wasn't something they kept in stock. Nibbler usually came along, but, since Leela figured it would be a short trip, had left him with Amy and Hermes.

""Great, so now I'm trapped here with all you meatbags, about to power down completely because of lack of booze. It always ends this way! Make the robot do all of the work, and then kill him afterwards!" Bender yelled, while pulling out a cigar to smoke."

and on to chapter five! four!

Chapter 4
Part Two
 All Hope is Lost


   
   Something suddenly struck the Planet Express ship along the side of it's sleek, flawless exterior. Whatever it was had obviously hit the fuel line, because at that precise moment, the fuel gauge hit empty and the ship slowed down quite a bit. Everyone heard the engines powering down, and they knew at that moment, they were boned. Again, something hit the helpless ship, only this time it hit with less impact. Professor Zoidy ran to the storage room and grabbed an assortment of guns, and a few lightsabers so they could defend themselves if need be. Professor Farnsworth had invented these items, and put them into storage, since he never actually needed them for any reason. She handed everyone their weapon of choice and they waited. Something had docked with them a few moments after and the door slowly slid open, revealing a rather tall, sinister looking man. " Who the hell are you?!" Bender and Reyna asked simultaneously. "I am Dr. Julius Chives and I'm here to take Professor Farnsworth and this bending unit with me. I plan on destroying you desolate planet, and with some reasoning, I think the two of them will do as I say, and so will you." he said, in a rough voice.
   Professor Zoidy pulled out her lightsaber and held it, ready to strike. Fry stepped out in front of her, pulling out his own lightsaber. " You want them, you'll have to go through me first!" he yelled at Dr. Chives, a determined look on his face, and tone in his voice.
" Gladly," Dr. Chives said, as he pulled out a lightsaber from his belt's holster. He swung it at Fry's head, Fry barely moving in time. An all out war began between the two, and Fry wasn't looking too good. He was eventually backed into a corner, now facing certain death. " Well, it looks like I've won. Nobody to defend you now except an old man, a lazy robot, and three girls that can't do squat." Chives said with a smirk on his face. " You'd think that, wouldn't you..." Professor Zoidy said, distracting Chives long enough to give Fry the advantage. He pushed the man aside and stood next to Leela, Professor Zoidy, and Reyna, all of which now totally angry with the man. He scowled angrily at them and hit one of the ship's pipes and cut it free from the wall. Luckily, the pipe was virtually useless anyway, as it was for the air cooling unit, which had no use now anyway with the ship's main power gone.
Dr. Chives laughed evilly and swung the steel rod at Professor Zoidy, and it hit her square on the head, causing her to drop her lightsaber and fall unconsious. Her life was now flashing before her.
    Professor Zoidy hadn't always been called that. Her real name was Rachel, but she had always hated being called that. She had met Reyna in the 4th grade, and ever since then had become friends and gotten through life and it's hardships together. They ended up in the cryogenics lab and both fell into a tube, where they froze, until one thousand and two years later. Unfrozen, they had nobody to turn to, and set out on a mission: to find a job. Reyna found a job working as a nurse, but ended up hating the job, seeing how her boss was a jerk. Rachel, however went to college and got the title of professor, and Reyna became an offical college dropout. After Rachel had finished college, she decided to seek working somewhere she'd be useful and somehow came upon Planet Express, a small business run out of Professor Farnsworth's home. Reyna had come along the first day of Professor Zoidy's new job and got a job herself. They fit in quite well, and soon after, Zoidy met Fry, whom she admired for his comedy, even if it was unintended. Reyna, on the other hand, admired Bender's style of life.
   Professor Zoidy awoke sometime later, everyone standing over her, worried expressions covering their faces. " Wh-what happened?" the confused Professor Zoidy asked. " You got hit over the head with that steel rod and got knocked unconsious. Not too long after that, Dr. Chives escaped with Bender and Professor Farnsworth, and left us all here." Fry said to Professor Zoidy, who was now standing up. For the first time, Professor Zoidy saw Fry in a different perspective than she usually had: lazy, somewhat stupid, and funny because of it. But now, she saw him as someone who really cared for his friends, despite his stupidity. She smiled and hugged Fry and then got back to more urgent concerns. " So, that bastard took Bender and the Professor, eh?" she asked, half angry, half of her mind still pleased by the hug she'd just recieved. " Yes," Leela said, " and he made sure we had no means of getting home." Zoidy noticed their weapons were still there, including hers, and Fry's, which was now broken. He'd obviously tried to defend her after she had fallen, and it got chopped in half in the process. " Well, at least we're still alive. I bet    we can make some makeshift parts to use for now, and if there's any cargo that's made of metal, we can patch up the fuel line to get it working again, at least long enough to get us to a planet where they have fuel, and a place to buy spaceship parts. Everyone nodded approvingly.
   Soon, everyone was at work. Fry and Reyna were bringing everything made of metal that was lying around that had no use back to Leela and Professor Zoidy, who were each welding them together to make one giant pipe. " Thank God there aren't any holes other than the fuel line outside of the ship. We barely have enough to repair what little damage absolutely needs to be tended to." Professor Zoidy said, wiping the sweat from her forehead for the tenth time. Lucky for them they had a welding torch handy, and it didn't need any of their precious fuel, or power, to use it. Once finished welding, the remainder of the crew put on spacesuits, and headed out into the vast, star-filled space to fix the ship. " This job would be a lot easier if Bender was holding onto something so we could get in position to weld, and not worry about objects floating off." Fry said, a little annoyed. " This pipe is so damn heavy!" Reyna yelled out in her microphone that was attatched to her helmet. " Oww! Not so loud Reyna!" Professor Zoidy said. " Besides, how can that possibly be heavy? We're in space!!" Fry asked Reyna in a quizical tone. Reyna laughed nervously and picked her end of the pipe back up, fearing someone may hit her upside the head for her stupidity.
   The four crew members carefully placed the pipe in its proper place on the ship's exterior, and started welding it on, sparks flying and staying aloft in the weightless zone. " Well, I think we did a pretty good job of making a temporary part for the ship." Fry said, wiping his hands together, getting the small, rusty particles left behind from the makeshift pipeline. With that done, everyone slowly floated back towards the ship's door to climb back inside. One at a time, each crew member climbed up the ladder leading to the open doorway.
   After many minutes, the crew was back in action, the fuel gauge back online, and the engines powered back up and online, ready to blast them to Dog Doo 7, the closest planet to their present coordinates, and even that was hours away. " We should have just enough fuel to get to Dog Doo 7 if we don't run into any problems and keep from wasting too much fuel using lights we don't absolutely need. Reyna took that as her que. She went around the entire ship, turning off every light they didn't need to see with, unless in that certain place at that time, and returned a few moments later. Professor Zoidy sat next to Fry on the ship's couch, staring out the windshield, thinking to herself. We've already lost track of Bender and Professor Farnsworth. Not much else could make this day worse...

Its nice to hear the history behind this to. You started by throwing us in at the deep end, which is a great way of getting us hooked. Now the action is hotting up, you can afford time to introduce yourself and Reyna (a friend I'm guessing?)

Really? when I was writing it, Star Wars was probably the last thing in the front of my mind, well, actually, the lightsabers are totally infringed... xD I just thought it'd be cool to use the weapon like that, and it's not like it hasn't been seen in the show before. *looks at War is the H-Word* Yes, Reyna is a friend, who now goes by Kit, but I'm not changing it now, damnit! I really threw you in the deep end? Damn, I had no idea.

Yup, and here it is, as I promised. Last night, around ten thrity, I got a little bit of an AOI story... yup. No divulsions, will you get from me.

Chapter 5
A New Hope Arises


   Professor Zoidy had been thinking for quite a while about that day's events, and had fallen asleep, her head on Fry's shoulder. Fry felt sorry for her. She had worked so hard to stop Dr. Chives, yet lost the battle, and ended up getting wanged in the head, Bender and Professor Farnsworth captured. He took off his jacket, wrapped it around Professor Zoidy and slowly got up, making sure not to wake her. He then walked out into the hallway to talk with Leela and Reyna about the day's happenings. " It all happened so fast..." Reyna said, wondering what was happening to Farnsworth and Bender at that moment. She tried her hardest, but couldn't help thinking the worst. " Well, we'll be landing in a few minutes to get food and fuel for the ship, along with repairs." Leela said, looking at her wrist computer. Several hours had passed since they had repaired the ship, and the crew was getting hungry. Even if they were in space, repairing the ship took lots of concentration, which in turn, took a lot of energy.
   The ship landed moments later, Professor Zoidy waking up, to find Fry's jacket covering her arms. She got up from the couch, and found Fry, handing him his jacket back. " Thanks Fry. That was really kind of you." Professor Zoidy said, kissing Fry on the cheek. She walked out of the ship last, making sure it was securely locked once again, and followed Leela to a nearby Fishy Joe's. It wasn't fancy, but it'd do. Professor Zoidy felt like she'd eat anything, so long as it wasn't poisonous. They walked in and ordered, then sat down with their food and ate it with hardly and manners whatsoever. Fry was accustomed to this, so it didn't bother him at all, even when most people started staring at the crew with disbelief. Reyna went back up to the counter and ordered more food for their dinner, and another day's worth, in case they didn't have time to stop elsewhere later.
   Reyna carried the food out the door to the ship, the rest of the crew following. Now to get the ship to a repair shop.. Leela thought to herself. There were many on Dog Doo 7, but some were not ones worth thrusting a hover car, let alone a huge spaceship. Walking only for 30 minutes, the found a mechanic worth trusting, and left their ship to get repairs. While they waited, Fry and Professor Zoidy headed over to the local mall to stop by the many stores in seach of a new lightsaber for Fry.
   As they walked through it's glorious entrance, the curious professor asked Fry the one question that was bugging the crap out of her. " How did your lightsaber break?" she asked, not looking directly at Fry, but around the mall, searching for the right shops to look in first.
" After you got hit with that rod and got knocked out, Leela and Reyna distracted him again and I attacked Dr. Chives. I tripped on your leg, and my lightsaber struck his, and sent it flying. He then retrieved it , swung his lighsaber at me, missing and snapping my lightsaber in half. He left with Bender and Professor Farnsworth a few seconds later. He was scared of my raw power!" Fry said in a gallant way. While Fry was talking, Professor Zoidy had found the shop they needed and directed Fry in that direction. The shop was rather bright once they got inside, and they had to shield their eyes for a few seconds while they adjusted. A portly man walked up to the two, smiled, and kindly asked what they needed. " We just need a new lightsaber for my friend here." Professor Zoidy said to the salesclerk." Of course. We just got some new ones in a few hours ago. What kind will you need?" he asked, walking behind the counter. " Oh, one that'll replace this one.." Professor Zoidy pulled out the once useful saber and handed it to the man, who stared at it, in awe. " Do you know what kind of lightsaber you've broken?" he asked. "No, why?" Fry asked the salesman confused. " You've broken one of the most sturdiest of all sabers like it was a twig! It may not be the rarest, but it would have gotten you a few dollars on secondhand market, at least eight hundred now that you've gone and broken it." the man said. " Holy crap! I'll let you have it, in exchange for a new one, good quality. See, he was fighting this guy, Dr. Chives.." Professor Zoidy started saying, but the man stopped her. " I've had a lot of people coming in with the same story. Say no more." With that, the man walked into the back storage room of the little store and came back a few seconds with a new lightsaber. " This is even better than the one you broke, and it comes with two, one for you, and one for your girlfriend here, free of charge." the clerk said, winking. The two were taken aback by the generosity of the man. " Thank you, sir! If you ever need help, please don't hesitate to ask..." Professor Zoidy said, happy and shocked at the same time. " It was no trouble at all. You need not repay me. I've worked here many years, and seen many who have sought evil. I know they need all the help they can get." the man said, and walked back into the store room smiling happily to himself. "Gee, that was nice of him to do that for us.." Professor Zoidy said. " Yeah, wait'll we tell the rest of the crew!" Fry said happily, holstering his new saber in him pocket, the saber sticking out and making his jacket making a weird shape.It had golden metal around it's ends and was absolutely stunning. The saber itself was a brilliant shade of orange, the exact color of Fry's hair. Professor Zoidy's was also orange, but was more the color of Fry's jacket. She had no use for her old one now.
   Fry spotted Reyna and Leela walking towards them, smiling back at them. " So, any luck at the mall?" Reyna asked. " Well, don't look into it, but you get my lightsaber now." Professor Zoidy said to Reyna. " Why?" she asked in reply. "Because, after we found the shop we needed, we walked in and the nice salesman gave me and Fry free sabers in exchange for his broken one for some reason. He said he'd been doing that sort of thing for years, and I wasn't one to argue. I searched it up and down for any trickery after we left, but, even after scanning it with my own wristcom, I discovered nothing out of the ordinary.
" Well, now we'll have a fighting chance." Leela said, continuing on after saying this." The ship's fully repaired, so we'll be leaving in a few minutes." With that, they headed towards the mechanic to climb into the ship, and fly off to save Bender and Professor Farnsworth.

Thanks, Jim! To me, it seemed to be getting worse... Now, I'm maybe thinking of a sequel. More lightsabers will be involved, if not having an entire ripoff of Star Wars  laff

Yeah, about my two-day absence.. Heh, well Friday and Saturday weren't really my choice. Well, Friday was, but I was having too much fun driving go-carts and pay $4.75 a ride going NASCAR Speed. That, and DDR... Saturday, I was kinda dragged to my aunt's b-day party, where I was bored to death. Needless to say, I was hungry around 11pm central time at my place, because I only ate a small porkchop... That makes two hungry nights. Friday i ate very little pizza...That damned cheese is seemingly filling, you know.. anyways, here's the next chapter.

Chapter 6
Saving Farnsworth and Bender

   The crew boarded the ship and took off, Dog Doo 7 fading in the night sky. Here we come Bender, Professor Farnsworth. Professor Zoidy thought to herself. Leela had sat down to pilot, while the rest of the crew took a break. Everyone was tired, and they took turns piloting and sleeping. Luckily for the crew, Professor Zoidy had heard Farnsworth say something about putting a tracking device in his right hand, the career chip being in his left hand. " I think I know how we can save the Professor." Zoidy said to everyone that was awake. " He said he installed a tracking device in his right hand, and that it was around 157,000 mega hertz in radio wave lenghts. That's not too far from where our current coordinates are, so we can probably pick up the signal any second now." The moment Professor Zoidy finished, the familiar sounds of the tracking signal could be heard. She rushed over to the radar screen and stared, finding the blip instantly on the screen. " He's northwest of where we are, and appears to be on Tweenis 12." Professor Zoidy said, a slight twinge of surprise in her voice. She then retook her seat on the couch next to Fry, and stared into the vastness of space. She took out her lightsaber and looked it over, glancing back up on occasions just for the heck of it. The handle gleamed in the artificial lights in the ship, giving it a pewter-like color.
   "We're now entering our quadrant of the universe, guys." Leela stated to the crew.  " This is the worst part, the calm before the battle.." Professor Zoidy said, now getting anxious. "Won't they detect our ship when we get within a few hundered thousand miles of Tweenis 12?" Fry asked curiously. " Well, yes, if we keep the ship's power on. We can glide in that far and land with the manual gears. It may be more work on our part, but it'll save us a lot of trouble in the end." Leela replied, shutting off the lights that remained on. Professor Zoidy then handed Fry and Reyna their lightsabers, and they readied themselves for battle, putting on the gear nessecary for war. The green outfits were a little bit heavy, but all in all were very well equipped with basic supplies. As Professor Zoidy slipped on her helmet, her heart skipped a few beats. It was exciting to go into battle, but at the same time,  terrifying. Neither her nor Reyna had ever battled, but often wanted to use a real lightsaber, even though they weren't actually around in their time. Fry seemed to be having a hard time getting his helmet on. " Damn arms!" Fry yelled out, more to himself than to anyone else around him. " We'll be landing in a few minutes." Leela said to the crew, putting her own helmet on. Professor Zoidy stared out of the windshield, thinking about her life, and how this could be then end. The end for her, and the end for the rest of the crew. She walked over to Fry and wispered in his ear before he had a chance to throw his helmet on the ground in frustration. " Whatever happens out there, know you've got friends to help you. I want you to know that... I love you Fry." Professor Zoidy, who was now crying, kissed Fry and walked off, heading towards the cargo bay to see the ship that made her heart leap, possibly for the final time.
   Zoidy sat down on a crate next to the makeshift chess table once again and stared at the pieces lying in the box on the floor. She reached into the box and pulled out one of the pieces, slowly turning it in her hand. It was her favorite, because it was a dragon for one thing, but also because Fry had given it to her on her birthday, along with a ray gun which she often used for shooting pictures of her enemies she had pasted on empty Slurm cans. The door that led into the cargo bay suddenly opened, Fry walking in. " You're afraid aren't you?" he asked in a gentle tone, trying to encourage Professor Zoidy. " I feel..." "As if you don't belong here?" Fry finished for Zoidy, who nodded. " I've gotten used to the fact everything in my old life's gone. In fact, I've never been happier!"  Fry said, smiling. " I suppose it's better, and it's not so much the fact that I don't fit in, it's the fact that we're about to go into battle. I've never faced seeing somebody  die, and I don't feel like starting today." Professor Zoidy said angrily. " Who said anything about dying?" Fry asked her, somewhat bewildered at the negative statement. " Well, I nearly got killed myself after getting hit with that pipe upside the head.." the worried professor stated. " So? We've got helmets now so that won't happen. Besides, we've got the upper hand. They're in hiding because they're scared of our raw power!" Fry said, confidence building up inside him. Professor Zoidy laughed at this, and hugged Fry, the ship landing on the ground. Fry held onto Zoidy's hand and started talking to her." I want you to know that I suck at battling, so you'll need to protect me.." Professor Zoidy laughed even harder at this. Fry laughed himself and stating that he was joking after that. The two walked to the front end of the ship, and awaited Leela's orders. " Dr. Chives is somewhere nearby in this building. Looking at the radar, the professor and Bender seem to be somewhere on the west end of said building. The scanners detect a lot of security, so we'll have to go through it. I can't disable it without it's silent alarm warning Chives about intruders." With that, Leela finished her speech, and ended it with a kurt  " Good luck" and they headed out into the open, the battle approaching ever closer.
   The crew silently crept off the ship and walked over to a nearby rock, where they sat and waited while Reyna scouted the area with her binoculars. She saw only two guards, which could easily be taken by the four. They got up and crept over to the guards and stood quicetly behind them. They never noticed anyone behind them until it was  too late. By the time they noticed, they were already tied up and were hidden behind the rock. The building looked like it used to be some sort of factory. It's odd yellow border on the top and bottom of the building suggested it to be an old toy factory of some sort. " Well, nothing is coming up on my heat scanner, but that doesn't mean anyone else is inside." Leela said, making sure her wristcom was turned off after she finished using it.
   They walked inside, seeing many cobwebs it the top corners of the surprisingly low ceiling. It wasn't dark inside at all. The lights were on in the building, though a few here and there were burnt out. The brownish-gray walls seemed to close in as they walked through the maze of hallways. Professor Zoidy was using her own wristcom to seek where the Professor and Bender were. Suddenly, another blip of light appeared, and it was heading in their direction, and at an alarming rate. " Uhh, I think we'd better hide now!" Professor Zoidy said panicking. She pointed out the new blip to the crew and they ducked into a nearby room, and found boxes to hide in. No sooner had they settled in, they heard someone walk by, luckily not stopping in the room the crew was currently in. The sound was familiar. The sound could only have been  made by Dr. Julius Chives himself, the familiar rythm of his shuffling made it clear he was in a hurry, possibly to kill Bender and Farnsworth. " We've got to attack now before they're dead." Fry wispered, getting out of his box. Everyone else climbed out of their own boxes as well and agreed upon Fry's plan. For once, he'd actually come up with a decent plan.
   The four snuck out of the room, Professor Zoidy on constant alert, staring down at her wristcom now and again to make sure they weren't being followed. They soon found themselves outside a gargantuan door that read " Prisoner Holding Chamber". Leela blasted the small lock on the door with her laser and it came right off, the door swinging open to let them in. Professor Zoidy softly called out into the semi-dark room. " Professor Farnsworth? Bender? You guys in here?" A weak "help" was all the reply she got. Reyna figured out where the two were and lead the rest of the crew to a single cell, holding both Bender and the Professor, both looking like they had nearly been tortured to death already. " Are you guys alright?" Reyna asked, reaching into the cell's old-fasioned bars to grasp Bender's arm in hopes to find he hadn't powered down completely yet. When Reyna did this, she got a weak reply which asked for booze, which Reyna was happy to give to him.
" Oh thank your god. Booze!" Bender yelled, pouring in into his mouth, his power cells back to normal. " Here Professor Farnsworth. Something to eat and to drink. Lucky you we wore these army suits." Professor Zoidy said, handing him a bottle of water and a small portion of random Fishy Joe's food the crew had from their trip there earlier that day. " Thank you." Farnsworth replied. " You'll need to get us out of here fast. Chives comes around midnight every night to torture us more." Farnsworth said, strength returning to his weak body. " If that's the case, why hasn't Bender bent the bars by now?" Fry asked. " Can't you tell they aren't actually made of metal? They're actually made of the same stuff as Farnsworth's fishing line." Reyna stated to Fry. " What about this lightsaber? Can it break the bars?" Reyna held out her lightsaber while Farnsworth examined it. " No, it's not good enough. We need a stronger one." Professor Zoidy pulled her own lightsaber out. " What about this one?" she asked. The Professor was stunned. " Where did you get this lightsaber? It's the best around! These cost a lot of money, and unless Bender stole them, how the hell did you get the cash for it?!" Farnsworth asked. " We got 'em for free at the mall on Tweenis 12. Chives broke Fry's old one, so we went out seeking a new one. Ended up getting two out of the deal." Professor Zoidy winked. " Who has the other one then?" Professor Farnsworth asked. Fry pulled out the lightsaber, Farnsworth clearly surprised with the choice of who she gave it to. " Why the hell did you give the other one to Fry!?" Farnsworth asked, now angry. " He saved my life..." Professor Zoidy began. " Right..." Farnsworth replied, still halfway blinded with anger. " I didn't finish... When we were fighting Chives to get you and Bender back, he cut a pipe from the ship and hit me over the head with it. Fry defended me, but broke the old saber doing so." Zoidy said to Farnsworth. The Professor stared at Fry, the idiot who usually screwed every mission up, was actually doing something right.
   " Well, if your done gaping, I'm going to cut these bars before we get caught. You might wanna stand back.." Professor Zoidy said as she ignited her saber and slammed it's blade into one of the bars. The seconds passed by slowly as she gradually put more force into cutting the bar. It took roughly a minute to cut it, but with Fry now helping, it'd take half the time to get them out. Every since Reyna and Zoidy had met the crew, they always seemed to be active, and Fry was getting into really good shape again. Professor Zoidy herself had never been stronger and more in shape than now. The last bar fell with a clank to the floor, and the two prisoners escaped, along with the other four. They managed to make it to the door before around fifty guards and Julius Chives blocked their only means of escape.
