In the Dungeon on Planet Doom…
Larmina: *Sighs* What do i do? I need to get out of here before that creep decides to torture me to make me call out the girls. i am not gonna lure them to this place. i refuse to do it.
King Lotor: *Speaking from the intercom* You don’t have a choice. you’re not gonna get out of that Dungeon cell till you do lure them here. Here’s the deal. you Call them out. they come. you go and are released. you go back and are free as a bird. they stay.
Larmina: *Standing up and replying back* They are innocent girls. If you think i am gonna lure them to get hurt just for your sick enjoyment… you got a very serious issue. you know that? There is no way they’ll come unless there is danger. the power doesn’t happen at will and just out of nowhere.
King Lotor: You better think about it. because until you do… you’re gonna be staying at the Doom hotel for a very long time… MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Larmina: *Rolling her eyes* Oh brother. what a joke. he’s even more messed up than i thought he was. I thought it was just some game. but i guess that it’s more serious than i thought it was.
Although at the school in Metropolis…
Paige: *Walking with her sister Pearl* Pearl, Do you wonder if something’s going on and we are not being told about it?
Pearl: Not sure, Paige. why do you ask?
Paige: I don’t know. it’s just that something doesn’t seem right. we haven’t heard anything from the professor.
Pearl: You know… you’re right. there must be something going on.
Paige: Let’s go to the girls restroom and give him a call. he’s got to know something….
Betty: *Nearby; overhearing* You girls will know when there is something up. just keep a low profile. No one is supposed to know that you’re the superheroes known as Rhapsody Girls Z. no one knows. they can’t ever know. it will give you more attention than what you want. you’ll be having a lot of unwanted attention. you don’t want that. the whole point of saving the day is to do it while keeping the fact that you’re superheroes a secret. if the people know… how can you protect them?
Angel: That’s right. you must not let the people know who you really are. it’s not only to keep your identity a secret… but it’s also to protect the people’s safety too. if they know who you are… they’re at risk because they could get hurt by people who seek to expose the superheroes for they are beings that don’t belong on this world in their eyes and disrespect them for they do not understand them or what they do…As much as you two want to go out and make a change… you can’t. not without people mistakenly finding out who you are.
But at the Castle of lions…
inside the control Room…
Keith: *Looking at Lance* we need someone to go and rescue Larmina.
Lance: But who? we can’t send just anybody. Do you think that we should send Tammy out to go and rescue Larmina?
Keith: Well there is her… or Pidge. But he’s not a pilot anymore. he retired from it.
Lance: That’s true. but he’s the professor now. if he runs into trouble… he can just call the girls. All he’s got to say is that line… “Rhapsody Girls… —”
Keith: *Cutting Lance off* uh… don’t say it. there is no need to be calling them right now. there is no danger. just a rescue procedure. that’s all there is. plus they’re in school right now anyway. it could be disturbing them from their school work.
Lance: Keith, we’ve got to do something…
Hunk: *Walking into the Control Room* What’s all the fuss, guys? something going on?
Lance: We’re just planning or decided on who should go to rescue Larmina.
Hunk: That’s nothing to worry about. we’ll all go. besides… she’s our comrade. our teammate and it wouldn’t be right if only one of us went. you think that King Lotor is gonna make it that easy for anyone to come bust her out? he’s got defenses all over the place. if only one of went… it wouldn’t work. we’d be caught. but if all of us went… there’d be a distraction so one of us could sneak in and try to break Larmina out of the clutches of King Lotor.
Keith: *Thinking* Hunk, you got a point. this is a job for all of us. we all must go and get her.
What they didn’t know was that Pidge was already on his way over to the school… he was gonna go see the 3 girls. he wanted to talk to them in person… He took the Van though so it wouldn’t catch anyone’s attention. He was gonna talk to them about what was going on. But as for the team… they were about to go and head over to the Planet Doom to rescue Larmina.
On Planet Doom…
Doom soldier: *Unlocking the door and Walking into the cell* You’re gonna be going to the Throne room. King Lotor is expecting you and wants your cooperation. And this time… if you don’t cooperate… there is an army of Doom soldiers all prepped to fire at you on command. you can try to dodge a few bullets or lasers… but you can’t dodge them all.
Larmina: Maybe not… but i can try. *Activating her Voltcom weapon* Just watch. *Swinging her Battle staff at the Doom soldier* Hiya! Don’t you mess with me, buster. you’re gonna regret it.
Doom Soldier: I don’t think so… *Summoning more guards to come in and surround Larmina* Aha! you were saying what? That i was gonna regret it… was it? Hmm… i believe that it’s gonna be you who will do the regretting. *Commanding the guards* Take her away to the Throne Room. King Lotor wants to see her.
The guards then seize her and take her to the throne Room to meet face to face with King Lotor. As much as she tried to break out of their grip… she couldn’t break loose. there was nothing she could do. she tried kneeing at the guards and also kicking at them too. nothing worked. She was being made to Lure the Rhapsody Girls to Planet Doom… What was she gonna do? Betray them? or summon them to warn them? she had to think fast for she was only a few feet away from the Throne room.
By time she made it to the throne room… She was wanting to scream in anger over the way she was being treated. she was being forced to do something against her own free will. she didn’t want to be part of King Lotor’s plan. she thought it was nuts and cruel to force her to betray the trust and the closeness that she had with the girls. She and Tammy nor Pidge were really that close to them, but with the beginning of their powers and by them getting their powers… they were endearingly close to the girls. Larmina felt that she was about to call them and summon them to their Doom.
The Throne room of Castle Doom…
King Lotor: It’s time to summon them, you pesky Voltron pilot. you’re not gonna evade from doing it. *having the Guards get ready to fire* Now… will you do it?
Larmina: *Shedding a tear and says to herself* Paige, Pearl… Dinah… Forgive me… *Giving the Call* Rhapsody Girls… WE NEED YOU!
Through out the Galaxy the Voice echoed… and reached Metropolis…
In Metropolis… At the school…
The girls were in class and were doing a class assignment in history…
Paige: *Writing a paper*
Pearl: The girls in the Medieval time have such nice dresses. i bet that they made them. that they were so shiny and with gold trimming and that they wore such shiny shoes.
Dinah: *Thinking while writing her paper* I’ll bet that they guys had great action. kicking lots of butt and sword fights. all that action.
Paige: Yeah. but history is not always that bright. there is also the part about when the teacher told us about the dark ages. the black death and diseases.
Pearl: That part scared me a bit. i don’t like that part at all.
Dinah: Yeah. there was not even a spec of action during that time. all people would do is fear about some disease like it was a form of cancer or something. so what? it was just disease. it wasn’t anything special. try things like Aids or HIV. that’s what real Diseases are. Disabilities and syndromes. those are diseases.
Paige: Yeah. *Looking at Dinah* You’re right Dinah. but back then the things as AIDS and HIV didn’t exist. The Dark ages were bad. nothing was created. made or invented. there was no productivity anywhere.
Suddenly their power buckles go off and glow…
Dinah: *Looking Down* Alright… we got action.
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Raising their hand* Teacher, we got a Stomach ache… can we be excused?
Teacher: Okay. go to the Nurse and get yourselves checked out.
Paige: *Getting up and heading out the door quick* Thanks teach… We’ll be back.
Pearl: *Heading out of the room* Thank you. We’ll come back.
Dinah: *Running out of the room and with her Lunch* yeah.
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Running to where it was quiet and no one around*
In the Cafeteria where it was a quiet room and no one in sight…
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Putting their hand up and Seeing a Ring Appear on their finger*
Paige: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* PAIGE! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows releasing hearts* …*Doing formation poses (Doing roundhouse Punches as she spins) revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* …
Pearl: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* PEARL! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows releasing a small whirl of Bubbles* …*Doing formation poses revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* …
Dinah: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* DINAH!! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows Releasing some stars with a few sparks of Electricity* …*Doing formation poses (Throwing Punches and Kicks and Peace signs) revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* …
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Fully Transformed and doing a group pose* RHAPSODY GIRLS… Z!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Flying out to Arus and looking for the Danger*
Paige: *Looking over the forest and the Village* Wow! The Village is toast. what happened?
Pearl: And the people are gone too.
Dinah: *Disappointed* Aw man… you mean that there was a fight going on and we missed it? This stinks. I wanted to have some action too.
Paige: Let’s go and find the Force pilots. they must know something.
Pearl: *Sad* I sure hope that the people are okay.
Dinah: I am sure that they are. they’ll be okay. They’ll just rebuild again and it’ll be like new. They might be scaredy cats… and afraid of those creeps from that Doom planet. but they don’t give up on living.
Paige: *Groans* Smooth Dinah… really smooth. but you’re right. *Leading the way to the castle* we should find Tammy and Larmina… they might know what’s goin’ on.
They flew right over to the castle of Lions and went to find out what happened. but as soon as they reached the castle, they barely landed when they heard the sounds of animals roaring. they looked up to see that the lions were in up in the air already… but to them it looked like a couple of lasers being shot into the sky.
Inside the Control room…
Paige: *Looking around* Where is everybody?
Pearl: There’s no one here.
Dinah: Did this castle turn into a dead tomb? *Looking around for any sign of movement*
Nanny: *Walking in* What are you 3 doing here? you are supposed to be out saving the Village and the planet.
Dinah: *Jumps and looks at the Lady* Uh, i don’t think that you’re up to speed on what’s going on here. We just came from home… and were just at the Village. the Village was destroyed. it looked like a bomb was dropped on it and blew it to piles of Rubble.
Pearl: *Concerned* What happened to the people? Are they okay?
Coran: *From the control panel and turning to see the girls and Nanny* Nanny, You’re a sight for sore eyes. it’s good to have you back again with us.
Nanny: Thank you Coran. it’s good to be back again…
Coran: *Looking at the girls* Nanny these are the girls Paige, Pearl and Dinah who are helping us fight back the evil Drule King… King Lotor.
Nanny: *Nods* okay.
Dinah: Where is everybody? *Looking to see no one around* What happened to them all?
Coran: They all left to go and rescue Larmina from the Evil King Lotor. He captured her and has her prisoner…
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Gasps* What?!
Dinah: Captured?! *Shoots out* You’ve got to be kidding me! How could she get herself captured? She’s the one who kicks ass and takes a lot of names.
Pearl: So… where is she now?
Coran: Planet Doom.
Paige: Planet Doom? Okay. we’re on it. *Looking at Pearl and Dinah* Girls, let’s go. we got a job to do. Larmina needs us. so does the team.
Dinah: You got it, Paige. let’s go.
Back on Planet Doom…
in the throne room…
Larmina: *With tears in her eyes* They’re gonna be falling into a trap. it’s gonna be all my fault.
King Lotor: *Sitting on his Throne and waiting for the arrival of the Rhapsody girls* Their power is gonna soon be mine. with their power… i will be able to conquer the whole galaxy with an iron fist and an iron Haggarium grip. *Laughing sinisterly* MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Come on and meet your Doom Rhapsody girls… Come and Meet the end! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
What King Lotor didn’t know was that the other force members have showed up and were near… But Tammy was just outside the Throne room…
Tammy: *Outside the Throne room* Larmina Looks unharmed. but she’s surrounded by all those guards and… *Gasps* They’re gonna shoot her. I got to tell the others…
Larmina: *Waiting for the girls to come and get her out of the Evil Castle* I got to get out of here. I sure hope that the girls come and rescue me. but i am hoping that they stay back. this is a trap. Lotor is gonna get them.
Paige: *Flying into the Throne room and spotting Larmina* Larmina, Are you okay? Did he hurt you?
Pearl: *Looking at the man up ahead and seeing him gaze upon them with intrigue* Who is that?
Dinah: *Looking at Pearl; Confused* Who is what?
Pearl: *Pointing towards the front of the room and at the throne* that!
Paige: *Looking up to see a Weird looking guy with White hair* Whoa! That guy is ripped. too bad i’m not into guys that look Blue and are with White hair and reside on a dark planet.
King Lotor: *Snickers* Well Larmina… The deal is done. you’re free to go. the 3 girls are here and are trapped. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Dinah: *Outraged* What?! You’ve got to be kidding me? This was a set up?!
Pearl: *Looking at Larmina* Larmina. What is he talking about? What Deal is he talking about?
Larmina: *With tears in her eyes and afraid to look at the girls* The deal he made was that he would keep me till i called you over here. then when you guys come. i’d go free and be let loose. and you three would stay.
Paige: *Gasps* No! You didn’t… Please tell me that you didn’t do that.
Larmina: I didn’t want to. i didn’t want to do it. but he was gonna kill me if i refused. he had all these guards here aimed to fire at me.
Paige: Not for long… *Attacking the guards with her Sonic Wand of love* Love’s shower!
Pearl: *Attacking the guards with her Bubble Cannon* Bursting Bubbles!
Dinah: *Attacking the guards with her Sonic Hammer of Thunder* Quaking Thunder Beam! Hiya! Take that. Hurt our friend… well there is gonna be pain coming right back at you.
King Lotor: Guards! Take Larmina away. send her back to Arus where she belongs… *Walking down to confront the girls* You 3 girls have power that i want. and i will get that power.
Paige: Why do you want it so much?
Pearl: Don’t you have your own power?
Dinah: If you think that you’re getting your hands on our power… you can dream on. it’s not gonna happen. *Defensive*
King Lotor: *Shaking his finger left and right* Tsk! tsk! tsk! I thought that this was gonna be such an Easy prize. Guess i’ll have to take it by force, won’t i?!
Dinah: You just try it buster… we’ll flatten you like a pizza!
King Lotor: As you wish! *Firing shots of Electicity and burning Haggarium at the girls* HA!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Getting hit by the blast* AHHHHHH!
King Lotor: your power is gonna be mine. *lifting the girls into the air and Tossing them to the side hard* Surrender!
Dinah: *Getting up slowly* Never! You are never gonna get our power! NEVER!
Pearl: *Looking up* Dinah, What are you doing? That guy has Haggarium on him…
Lotor: *Snickers* And plus… what hope does a mere girl like you who looks cute in a Skirt have against the King of Doom?
Dinah: *Hearing the words: “You look cute in a Skirt being spoken* ….. *Shaking and suddenly Exploding with Rage* AHHHHHHHHH! I Told you NEVER TO SAY THAT!!!!!! I…..HATE…..SKIRTS!!!!! *With a Rampage Going after King Lotor*
The battle went on for a little and Dinah was letting King Lotor have it with each Swing. giving him a Left and right and Thumping him hard. But with all her might… the Drule king kept on coming and it tired Dinah out… With a quick Swoop of the Drulish charms… King Lotor grabbed at the girls and ripped off their power belts and wore them on his waist.
King Lotor: YES!!!*With the Powers of the Rhapsody girls* Infinite….ABSOLUTE POWER!!!!!! *Laughing in a chaotic victorius manner* MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA…….. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Looking up at him scared and shaking*
