The Transcript For This Page
We are back at Arana Awatere's theme park. Doris and Fiorella are just leaving Arana's office after their conference. They are moving along a corridor, pulling themselves along in zero-gee via hand-grips in the walls. Buzz is flying along ahead of them.
Doris: So Arana told us to 'get out there and enjoy' ourselves.
Doris: I don't know about you, but I'd like to get a few hours of sleep before we sally forth.
They continue along the corridor. We see them passing an intersection.
Fiorella: No argument from me.
Fiorella: Buzz, is there someplace we can sleep for a bit?
The girls pause, eyes widening, as Buzz turns to answer them.
Buzz: Yes, Fiorella. Arana has put the presidential suite at your disposal.
Same shot. The girls cast sideways glances at each other as Buzz turns to lead the way.
Buzz: Please follow me.
Very large panel, taking entire remainder of page. Allow space for a small inset Panel 6 in the lower right.
Buzz leads the girls into a hangar, filled with a variety of fanciful flying passenger vehicles. Included are a mechanical winged horse, a 2/3-scale model of Baron von Richtofen's red tri-plane ('the bloody Red Baron'), the Wright Brother's plane, the Apollo lunar lander, a flying carpet, a flying saucer, a convincing 'magic cloud,' something that looks like a giant version of Buzz with 'Buzz Bomb' stenciled on the side,and if there's room, any other fanciful conveyance you can think of.
This is a zero-gee area, full of handrails to assist in human movement. The room is hexagonal, with no particular 'floor'. The aircraft appear to be sitting on walls, ceiling, etc.
Buzz: Doris and Fiorella, these are personal vehicles for use within the park's airskin.
Buzz: Are there any craft here that appeal to you?
Close-up of Doris, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
Doris: Oh, yeah.
