Lexx 2.09 791
(written by Paul Donovan, Jeffrey Hirschfield)
(The Lexx flies through space. Xev is in her bed, Kai is in
his cryopod. On the bridge, Stan is dozing on the pedestal, and 790 is singing
on the floor)
790: If I only had a body, I'd be more than just a
If I only had a body, I would slap her on the bed
up a distress signal, and the view screen shows a planet. 790 ignores
790: If I only had a body, I would be Xev's hunky man
only had a body, I would get to pummel Stan
If I -
down from Lyekka's pod, which is hanging above the bridge. Stan wakes with a
STAN: Oh, I was just dreaming
(He sees Lyekka
stretching after emerging from her pod - she's wearing a red/blue body
LYEKKA: Hello Stanley
and walks over to him)
LYEKKA: It's wonderful to see you
was just dreaming of you in that outfit
LYEKKA: Hello robot. I have to eat -
(Stan looks nervous)
STAN: Well, see that's, that's
a problem. See, we're precisely in the middle of nowhere. There's no-one out
there, there's no-one to eat
790: Except you - so please Lyekka, help
yourself to security guard class appetiser - and stay away from Xev, meat
LYEKKA: You don't have to worry yet, Stanley. I heard a signal. That
means there should be something else to eat nearby
STAN: A signal? (to
790) Why didn't you wake me?
790: It was a distress signal. They only
lead to trouble, so I always ignore them
STAN: Yeah, well -
(The Lexx heads for the distress signal. Everyone is on the
bridge, looking at a planet on the view screen)
790: It is not a
life bearing planet, therefore the distress signal must be coming from a life
form that originated somewhere else
XEV: Like people who might have crashed
790: Yes - for example
KAI: Any atmosphere?
790: A very thin
one. Xev would require a pressure suit. Stanley would not
790: Because a pressure suit would allow you to continue to breathing,
which is a bad idea. A pressure suit would prevent the gas dissolved in your
blood from exploding in the thin atmosphere - something I've been looking very
forward to. A pressure suit -
(Xev is smiling - Stan is not, and
changes the subject)
STAN: Anyway - I'm not going anywhere
What's the matter Stan - scared? (smiles)
STAN: No, smart. I'm
staying on the Lexx
LYEKKA: I have to go down to the planet now. I'm very
XEV: So, we go down to the planet and rescue some crashed people, and
then you just - eat them?
LYEKKA: I will eat animals, if there are
XEV: But the people if that's all there is?
LYEKKA: Yes. I would never
eat Kai, because Kai is dead. You are my friends, so I prefer not to eat you,
but if I stay here I will have to
KAI: What if I stop you?
KAI: Kill you, perhaps
(Lyekka's arm stretches - and
stretches, and stretches. She grabs Kai's chin, then lets go, and returns to
LYEKKA: I'm not so easy to kill. Please - I need to go down
to the planet now
(She heads for the passageway leading off the
STAN: But I like her - well, when she's not hungry
(Lyekka looks at Stan and smiles)
LYEKKA: I like
you too Stanley
KAI: She eats people
STAN: Well, yeah, but -
(Lyekka leaves the bridge)
KAI: Lyekka is a predator. It
is fundamental to her nature to consume other living life forms, like
XEV: So you think we should leave her on the planet then?
dead means not having an opinion
XEV: Well I think - I think we're stuck for
now. Maybe I'll decide to leave her behind once we get down
(She gives 790 to Kai)
STAN: Ah Xev, don't be so
foolish. I mean, there's no need to go down - stay here, stay safe. Xev are you
(Xev leaves. Kai follows)
(Xev, Kai, 790 and Lyekka take a moth down to the planet. The
atmosphere is misty, with howling winds)
790: We're close to the
source of the distress signal now
KAI: There it is
(Down on the
surface, there's a ship similar to the Stripper in 2.7 Love Grows, as the
cockpit is separated from the bulk of the ship by a long cable. Xev gets on the
XEV: Stan - Xev. There's a crashed ship where that
distress signal is coming from
STAN: Be careful
XEV: Sure, we will
I've got a bad feeling
(On the Lexx, Stan is on the pedestal - he's
STAN: I've got a bad feeling
(The moth flies
low over the surface and lands. Xev is wearing a pressure suit, the others
aren't. Kai carries 790)
XEV: Stay close to me! I can't see a
KAI: I will
XEV: Lyekka! Let's stay close together. Lyekka!
(But Lyekka has gone off exploring on her own. Xev and Kai go
to the front section of the ship and open an entry hatch. Inside is an airlock.
On one side there's a window onto a compartment with a chair and controls. Xev
tries the inner hatch of the airlock, but can't open it)
can we open this door?
KAI: I think from in there
790: Clearly this
airlock is controlled from behind that armoured glass. That is highly unusual.
We should return to the Lexx at once
(Kai fires his brace. breaking
the glass. He pulls a lever and the hatch opens, revealing a long winding
passage. Xev is about to go in, when she notices a ladder inside the control
XEV: Maybe we should check out whatever's up there
(She heads up the ladder. Kai follows. It leads into the
790: The air is breathable in here Xev
XEV: Are you
(She takes off her helmet)
790: Yes. Some of the
ship's systems are obviously still operating
XEV: I don't know, this must be
(There are glass jars there, wired into controls. Xev
looks at the contents)
XEV: These are human hearts
Their life support system is still functional. The pilot, however, is
(The pilot is sitting in a chair. A huge muscular body, wearing
an outfit that looks like a cross between a gladiator and a football uniform -
with the butt cut out. And a head that looks like C3PO)
head has been ripped off (whimpers)
XEV: A robot
(Kai puts 790 down, takes a closer look at the
KAI: Machine from the lungs up. Mostly human from there down.
(He takes the broken head off and puts it down by 790,
who is making gurgling noises)
XEV: Are you OK?
XEV: Was there a human crew?
KAI: No sign of
(790 starts using red/green beams to scan the cyborg's legs,
XEV: Must have been a hard landing
790: Yes -
XEV: 790? What are you doing?
790: Oh, just running a quick scan of
his thing - his systems!
XEV: Hmm. And?
790: He's completely dude - dead!
Totally non functional. Never. Useless. History. Expired. Scrap. Done
could have sworn you were getting ideas
790: Pardon me? Oh - yes, well, of
course I noticed the missing head, but I determined immediately that it is
beyond repair, so I dismissed the dick - the idea of making him work again then
(Xev smiles, and strokes the cyborg's
XEV: What a shame. He's quite - a specimen
looks at 790, who makes a whining sound)
790: I should try to
analyse the ship's flight computer, don't you think? After all, we want to know
why it crashed
KAI: You seem to
790: My interest is purely academic. This
could take a little while - quite a little while, in fact. I will have to learn
how to work his - this, system. Perhaps you -
XEV: Kai and I - will explore
the rest of the ship, I guess
790: Excellent idea
KAI: I suggest that we
begin with the rear section
(He leaves a squawker beside
KAI: Call us if anything big comes up
790: I will. Be
XEV: I will
790: I won't be too long
(Xev and Kai
start back down the ladder. 790 scans the cyborg again)
headless hunk of fantasy fulfilment. Time to meet your new
(Xev and Kai reach the airlock, and head into the
XEV: I wonder why the two sections of the ship are so
(790 is still scanning)
790: Talk to me. Talk
(The cyborg unfolds a finger, then two more. It makes a fist,
and pulls arms free of the restraints holding it to the chair)
Yes! Oh Xev - it's going to be magical. It's going to be -
cyborg grabs 790, and starts banging him on a counter)
Very, very bad
(Xev and Kai are now at the hatch at the other end of
XEV: 790, we're in front of the door to the rear
section of the ship, and we can't open it. Can you activate it from the
(The cyborg kicks 790, who flies through the air, hitting a
red button. This opens the door, revealing a shifting blue force
XEV: Thank you. Some kind of electronic
(Kai puts his hand through it, pulls it
KAI: It appears to be harmless
XEV: I wonder what it's
KAI: Shall we?
(They walk through - at the top of what
looks like an old abandoned factory. Xev shines her torch)
doesn't look like much
KAI: Let's make our way round
(Back on the
bridge. 790 is on the floor, but seems to be gaining control)
That's right. Come on body, come on!
(The body walks shakily towards
790: Lean over now. Pick me up, here we go
cyborg walks away)
790: No, no, no! Come back here, you brawny
servant of my soon to be requited passion! Put me in my rightful
(The cyborg comes back, and picks up 790)
(Xev and Kai
walk down a metal staircase, into a large room. It contains big domes on
KAI: This appears to be the entire cargo
Whatever's in there must be very valuable
KAI: Or very
(Kai puts his hand on a blue light on a plinth, and the
dome lifts up. Xev shines her torch down - there's another ladder. Kai goes
down. Inside there's a big pod - very Alien. Kai crouches down to look at
XEV: Found anything?
KAI: An ovoid object. Potentially an
alien egg of some sort
(Meanwhile, back on the bridge -
790: Now, gently. Gently!
(The cyborg puts 790 onto its
shoulders, and starts shaking. 790 makes strange noises, walks about
(Kai runs his hand along the pod. Xev has joined
XEV: Be careful
KAI: There's movement inside. Something
(He peels open sections of the pod. There's a thin membrane
inside, which tears as a head pops up - it's a girl, covered in slime, but
pretty - like Snow White)
XEV: 790, are you there? 790? 790, can you
hear me? Come in
790: I'm right heeeeeeeeeeeerre!
(Xev listens to
the strange noises)
XEV: Have you learned anything about the nature
of this ship?
790: Not much
XEV: Keep searching. And see if you can turn
on some more lights in this section
790: I'll get right on it!
this is Xev. We've found somebody alive. There could be more
what kind of somebody?
(Xev looks at the girl -
XEV: A female somebody
STAN: Female. Is she
XEV: Is that all that matters to you?
STAN: Yeah, pretty
XEV: (smiles) Bye, Stan
STAN: No, wait,
(Xev breaks the connection)
(On the bridge, 790 is
clawing at the back of his neck)
(Desh opens her eyes and looks at Kai,
who kneels in front of her)
DESH: Who are you?
KAI: I am Kai,
last of the Brunnen G
DESH: Where are the jailers?
KAI: If you mean the
crew, there is no sign of anybody. The bridge was deserted
DESH: Not even a
KAI: There is a cyborg pilot, strapped in a seat. However, he seems to
have lost his head when you landed
KAI: You've crashed, on
an uninhabited planet
(Xev crouches down beside him)
We heard your distress signal. Are you a prisoner?
XEV: What was
DESH: Nothing - except for being in the wrong place at the wrong
time. I'm innocent. What was your crime?
XEV: Failing my wifely duties, and
humiliating my husband in the temple. I wasn't innocent
KAI: So, how did you end up here?
DESH: I was going to
meet my husband, at the outer colonies. We picked up some metal traders, at the
outer rim. They started killing us, just murdering everyone. Laughing, rubbing
blood all over -
KAI: Where were they taking you?
DESH: I don't know. They
might be slave traders, I don't know! I wish they'd just killed
(Kai seems quite moved by this. He stands up, and puts a hand
inside the pod to pull her out)
KAI: I will release you
(Kai stops, lets go)
KAI: Why not?
When they put me in here, they removed my - heart, to prevent
(Kai looks down at her chest - there are cables coming out of
DESH: They kept me conscious while they did it, made me
(Desh starts sobbing. Xev looks sick. Kai lowers Desh back into
KAI: I'm going to check the other cells
heads up the ladder, Xev follows)
XEV: Don't worry, I'll be back
(At the top, a thought occurs to her)
XEV: Kai, I'm
worried about Lyekka showing up
KAI: You should be
(He raises the
dome behind Desh's)
XEV: We have to get this woman's heart from the
bridge before -
KAI: Lyekka gets it?
KAI: How will you know
which one it is?
XEV: It should be the first one in line, just like
(Xev heads back to the bridge, while Kai goes down into the next
cell and opens the pod. This one contains a man - Berf)
ahead! Do your worst, I'm ready for you - but if you turn your back on me for
one second, I'll rip your throat out!
KAI: I am not your jailer. I am Kai,
last of the Brunnen G
BERF: You could be the last of the cockroaches for all
I care, I'm still gonna tear you apart!
(He laughs, and spits on
Kai's face. Kai touches his face, seems quite surprised by this, and
(Xev is back on the bridge)
XEV: How's it going, 790?
790? Where are you?
790: Here, my love - but I'm more than 790
(The cyborg 790 emerges from the shadows)
can call me 791 - the one for you
(He walks closer to
790: It's our day of destiny, Xev. I am whole, and wholly
XEV: You said he was broken
790: I lied for love
XEV: I don't
790: But it's true. Here I am, and I can't wait to take you in my
(He starts talking gibberish. His eye screens go blank, voice is
CYBORG: No mercy. Terminate them
XEV: What was
790: Part of the cyborg's control unit is body centred. I can override
it - mostly. Oh Xev - I don't know where to start. Do you want to be on top?
Should I rub you somewhere first? Command me, my mistress of
(He moves to hug her, but she backs away)
Not so fast, lover boy. I'm still getting over the shock. The new you certainly
offers a lot of - possibility
790: An immense possibility! 791 will be your
engine of desire. Gentle caresses. Full throttle animal couplings, and
everything in between. Our time has arrived. Hold me, my
(His eye screens go blank again)
New orders - dispose. None left alive
790: Sorry - a little glitch, nothing more. Xev - no-one
could ever love you like I do, and now I finally have the equipment to prove it,
so what in the universe is stopping us?
(Kai is in another cell,
looking at another prisoner. This man is called Wern, and he's
WERN: Hey, I'm travelling to Barnard 17 to close a deal,
and bam! I'm boarded. All the way! They're gonna do some horrible experiments on
me, right? Look, just find a way to get me outta here, friend, can you,
KAI: I'll - er - see what I can do
(He heads back up the
(Xev runs her hand along 790's casing, then down his chest,
navel, crotch - he moans)
XEV: You weren't lying. You really do have
790: It's all yours

790: What's wrong?
XEV: I don't know - timing. We have to
help Kai and Lyekka with the prisoners
790: Who cares about them?

CYBORG: Now, bitch,
790: Oh, Xev - sorry
XEV: Maybe I should get you off of there for
790: No, please - it's just a little feedback. I'm certain it's to do
with those two cables down my back that I can't reach. They lead directly into
the body's central processor. Will you help me connect them?
790: Slide them up through the join
(He points, turns. Xev
has a look)
790: Back a little - back - to the left - there! Connect
it right there
(Xev plugs in the two cables)
XEV: Did I
get it right?
790: You got it, treasure chest. I'm fully online, and ready to
CYBORG: Bend over, tubby!
(790 shakes, and falls
(Kai returns to Desh's cell, kneels down by her
KAI: Hello again
DESH: Thank you, for rescuing me
But I haven't rescued you yet
DESH: I know, but still - tell me about this
planet we crashed on. How did you get here?
KAI: On the Lexx
DESH: What is
KAI: A large insect
(790 is still on the floor, his eye
XEV: 790, are you there? Can you hear me? 790? Are
you completely fried?
(We can see Xev from the cyborg's point of
view, but 790's eye screens are still blank. Xev gets up and goes over to the
hearts. The screens light up - but it's not 790's face. They go blank as Xev
looks back. She takes on heart jar from each end of the row)
Stan is on the pedestal, getting restless)
STAN: Xev, come in, come
in, are you there? Xev?
(She puts the jars down and answers the
XEV: I'm here
STAN: So, listen - what's this about
XEV: Not now, Stan
STAN: Look, all I wanna know is, how many
there are and what they look like
(790 is scanning Xev - his eyes
beady, teeth pointed)
XEV: We don't know how many yet, Kai's still
checking. As for what they look like, I'm sure you would have your own opinion,
if you were here - but you're not
STAN: You're not helping me Xev. So look,
what are they, crash survivors or what?
XEV: They're prisoners, kidnap
STAN: Oh yeah? So, so, are they grateful to be rescued? You know,
XEV: Enough questions, Stan. I'm busy, very
(790's screens go blank as Xev looks at him)
790, you silly thing - you really did it this time
(She picks up the
heart jars again, and leaves. The cyborg face lights up)
(Stan is pacing the bridge, when he gets a
XEV: Stan, it's Xev. I'm back
STAN: Oh come on, Xev,
tell me what's really going on down there
XEV: Non-stop action of the hot and
STAN: What? Oh, you're teasing me, right?
XEV: I've just got a
full report from Kai. He's discovered an entire harem, very eager and very
attractive - you should really come down and meet them. They want to meet
STAN: So, is it completely safe?
XEV: If you want to play it that way
- but you don't have to. Anything goes
STAN: Um, well - what about Lyekka,
she get something to eat?
XEV: Everybody eats here, Stan - and eats, and
STAN: So, so they weren't really prisoners after all?
course, it isn't Xev on the squawker - it's the cyborg, imitating her
XEV: No. You see, it wasn't a distress call we answered Stan
- it was a beacon of desire, sent by lusty sex starved sirens. They're aching
for it, Stan. Begging for it. They want it hard, and they want it now. Are you
man enough to provide it? Bye bye Stan. See you soon
(A moth leaves the Lexx. Stan is inside, wearing a pressure suit,
but still not sure about the whole thing)
STAN: I don't know about
this. I really don't know
(He lands by the other moth. The cyborg
closes the inner hatch of the airlock. When Stan opens the outer hatch and walks
in, there's no-one in sight. Stan takes off his helmet, looks
STAN: Kai? Xev?
(He attaches his helmet to his
belt, and tries the inner hatch)
(On her way back to the cell, Xev hears
a man moaning. So does Desh. Kai emerges from her cell as Xev
MAN: Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, oh - arggggh!
(Xev nods. They go to a rear dome, open it - and a column of
liquid emerges. Kai and Xev look down at the bloody remains of a pod. The liquid
morphs into Lyekka)
LYEKKA: I like prisoners
back into liquid form, and glides away)
(Stan has not been able to get
the hatch open)
STAN: Xev! Kai!
(He sees the lever in the
compartment, tries it - the door opens. Stan laughs, pops his head
STAN: Kai? Xev?
(Then a voice calls down from the
XEV: Up here, Stanley, we are up here!
climbs into the compartment, starts up the ladder)
STAN: Ah, to the
(Xev and Kai have brought the hearts down into the cell. Desh
is looking nervous)
DESH: What's happening up there?
in the cells beside you just got eaten
DESH: By what?
KAI: A plant
Now what? There's one from each end, I didn't know which one is yours
I'm afraid you'll just have to choose one, and hope it's mine
hands a jar to Kai, who takes out the heart)
XEV: Are you just going
to stick it in there?
KAI: Unless you have a better idea
reached the bridge. He looks at the remaining heart jars)
Hello?! Hello! Where are you Xev, hello!
XEV: Down here, Stan! Down the
stairs, come on!
(Stan smiles, heads to the exit of the bridge, and
STAN: I don't see any party!
XEV: Over here Stan.
You're gonna love it
STAN: This better be good
(Stan smiles - then
he gets to the bottom of the staircase, and stops smiling. There are the remains
of two men tied to the stair rail, gagged, with their trousers down around their
STAN: I must be in the wrong place
walks up behind him)
CYBORG: Not at all, Stan. You're exactly in the
right place, for what I have in mind
(The cyborg puts his hands on
Stan's shoulders, and pulls him away. Stan screams)
(In the cell, Kai
pulls Desh up slightly, and pushes the heart in through the hole in her
(Elsewhere, Stan taps his foot to the beat of bad techno music
coming from the cyborg's chest)
CYBORG: Oh, yeah. Thrust it, monkey
man - give me some back and forth. Do it
CYBORG: I said do it! With feeling
(It is not
the best dancing of all time - but that's hardly surprising, given the
CYBORG: That's right. Dance. Shake your lily white
ass, buckaroo. More hips! Jiggle it!
(The cyborg joins Stan on the
dance floor, does a bad Travolta impression, then starts gyrating behind Stan,
CYBORG: Yeah baby. Keep it slippery now
clambers out of her pod - covered in slime, and a rather nice off the shoulder
leather number. She crouches on the floor, shivering)
DESH: I owe
you my life
(The cyborg grabs Stan's neck, leans him
CYBORG: Ever kissed a cyborg?
(He pushes Stan against a wall. Stan tries to push 790's head
away from his face)
CYBORG: When I was a man, I had uncontrollable
urges. That's why they made me into a machine. All those urges were supposed to
be erased. But when the prisoners reprogrammed me, the old flame came
(Stan is still struggling)
CYBORG: You're not pretty
- but you're my kind of not pretty
(He presses Stan's face to his
mouth screen. Stan grabs at the back of his head, manages to pull a cable loose
- and 790 splutters back into life)
790: I'll never tell if you
STAN: Agreed. Now just let me go
(And then the cyborg
CYBORG: You're not going anywhere till I deal with
the sizzle in my pizzle
790: Do something, Tweedle!
790: I don't know, kill yourself! Anything so that I don't have to go
through with this!
STAN: What about me?
CYBORG: Enough! I'm in control
790: Tweedle - I can't fight him. Run while you can. Save Xev!
(790 lets Stan go - he runs up the staircase, just before the
cyborg gets control)
CYBORG: I can smell your funk, Stanley - and
I'm coming to bury my face in it! (evil grin)
(Stan runs down some
stairs, then clambers through the rail, hangs down the side)
Stanley. Stanley - the head is mine. All heads are mine! So get ready to
(The cyborg walks down the stairs, doesn't notice
(Xev, Kai and Desh reach the force field. Desh stops, holds her
hand up to it)
XEV: What's wrong?
DESH: That's meant for me - not

glows red. A door shuts the passage)

attention - security default activated. Attention, attention - security default

(Stan is hiding from the
(Xev and Kai, stuck behind the door, can hear
DESH: I have no feelings. I am the perfect warrior. I kill to
live, and I live to kill. I was on my way to trial and execution, which is why I
triggered the security system when I came through the door. It was me who
arranged for the cyborg pilot to be reprogrammed to kill the crew. Of course, he
wasn't supposed to crash the ship - but that's all behind me. Thank you for your
assistance. Now die
(She walks away. Xev and Kai look at each
VOICE: Attention, attention - prisoner containment is the
mission priority. This prisoner transport will self destruct in 10 minutes, as
there has been a breach of the prisoner containment area
changed into more practical overalls, with a gas mask. She opens the airlock
hatch and goes outside)
(Stan is running up stairs away from the cyborg,
who is close behind)
VOICE: I repeat - this prisoner transport will
self destruct in 9 minutes and 52 seconds
(Desh sees a moth, and gets
inside. Kai is still struggling with the hatch. Stan is still
VOICE: Attention, attention - this prisoner transport will
self destruct in 8 minutes and 10 seconds
(Desh takes off her gas
mask, and flies the moth away)
(To evade the cyborg, Stan goes through a
door - which leads into a lift shaft. He manages to swing across to the ladder
on the adjoining wall)
VOICE: 7 minutes and 40
(The moth is now in space)
DESH: Kill to live -
live to kill
(Desh sees something watery outside. It morphs into
LYEKKA: Hello. How are you today?
Lyekka is inside the moth)
LYEKKA: This will be very pleasant for

will self destruct in 3 minutes and 10 seconds
(Stan hears music. He
looks up and sees the cyborg at the top of the ladder)
You're mine, concubine
(Stan straps himself into the chair and puts
on his helmet, as the cyborg heads down the ladder)
warning - all personnel must now be evacuated, as self destruction is imminent.
Warning, warning - all personnel must now be evacuated, as self destruction is

is sucked out, but manages to grab hold of the door frame. Stan grabs a nearby
STAN: Who's laughing now, robot?!
but misses the cyborg. The harpoon hits the door frame - and to make matters
worse, there's a line attached to it. The cyborg grabs the line. Stan drops the
gun and the cyborg falls back, but the gun gets lodged on a rail, and the line
holds. The cyborg makes it back to the compartment, shuts the airlock door, and
