on Earth. In the ATF bunker, Stan and the boy Digby are still strapped up on the
DIGBY: What was your crime?
STAN: Not flying as far away as
I could from this stupid planet when I had the chance
DIGBY: In your big
STAN: The Lexx
DIGBY: Why didn't you?
STAN: Because I'm
DIGBY: I wish I could fly away from this planet. Will you take me
with you when you go?
STAN: (shouts down) Tell Prince I wanna talk
to him! Tell him - I'm very uncomfortable, he's made his point, and I'm willing
to make a deal!
DIGBY: Stanley -
STAN: Tell him Stanley H Tweedle is a
DIGBY: What kind of deal?
STAN: Look, no offence OK, but I
don't like children. We're stuck here beside each other for now, so I'll agree
not to bug you, if you agree not to bug me. OK?

STAN: I'm in
agony here! Tell Prince I wanna see him right now!
watching Stan from his office high on the opposite wall - Stan looks tiny from
there. Prince frames him between his thumb and index finger, pretends to crush
him, and chuckles)
(Texas. A women's prison. Two female guards drag Xev
up to a desk where a warden - Heidi - is doing her paperwork. She has a strange
accent - meant to be Texan?)
HEIDI: You're the one that killed four
guys at the Lilliput trailer park, right?
XEV: I didn't kill
HEIDI:(bored) I believe you, name?
XEV: Xev Bellringer of B3K
HEIDI: Is B3K in Texas?
HEIDI: Then where is it?
XEV: B3K is another planet, far away from
HEIDI: Ain't no space on this form for other planets
leans over the desk to look at the form, but the guards pull her
XEV: All I know is that I'm from the planet B3K. I don't know
where on it exactly
HEIDI: OK, lets make this easy - did you grow up in a
city, town, or in the countryside?
XEV: I grew up in a box
be Houston then
XEV: How long do I have to stay here?
HEIDI: Oh, I'd say
about - 25, years, to life. That's 25 of our Earth years
laughs, and puts a plastic bag containing panties on the desk)
What's that for?
HEIDI: That's a fresh pair of panties for you to put on.
Don't matter whether you like 'em or not - you won't be wearing 'em
(Xev looks at a security camera. Someone is watching her on it -
a goth girl with long black hair, who you may recognise as Lomea from 2.13
Twilight. Lomea zooms in on Xev, licks the screen, and presses her face against
(A young missionary - it's Brock from 3.3 Gametown - walks up to a
hideously brightly coloured house, and knocks on the door. We can't see who
answers, but it's Lomea)
MISS: Do you have joy in your
MISS: I'd like to give you a life of joy!
holds up a copy of his book, A Life of Joy, and smiles at
LOMEA: I was asleep. You woke me up. That does not make my life
MISS: (laughs, confused) But it's 3 o'clock in the
LOMEA: I prefer to sleep during the day
Because that's when people like you are awake
(She grabs the
missionary and pulls him inside the house)
(The ATF bunker. Boredom has
finally set in)
STAN: OK. So where you from?
DIGBY: I'm from Sulphur Louisiana
STAN: Ah. Nice
STAN: Oh. Too bad
DIGBY: Where are you from?
Well - I'm from Ostral B, actually
DIGBY: Ostral B?
STAN: Yeah, yeah - I
was a hero there. But that's in the Light Universe, you know, it's a different
universe from this one. This is the Dark Universe. The last planet I was on was
the Cluster, which was the capital of the League of 20,000 Planets
What did you do there?
DIGBY: What kind of security? Was it
STAN: Dangerous? (laughs) I laugh in the face of
(In his office, Prince turns on his monitor for a close up
view of this conversation)
DIGBY: Did you capture space
STAN: Well, yeah, stuff like that - look, you don't get to be the
captain of the most powerful vessel in the two universes without having gone
through quite a few difficult situations
PRINCE: Oh, Stanley, Stanley
DIGBY: Wow. They put me
here because I saw your spaceship go behind the moon with my telescope. What's
STAN: Well, like a big bug really - except with mechanical parts.
And - it is the most powerful destructive force ever built
DIGBY: Who owns
STAN: Well, I guess you could say I do, Stanley H Tweedle
do you control it?
STAN: Well, it's kinda hard to explain really - look, this
is a Type 13 planet, and you people - you're nowhere near my level of mental
DIGBY: Guess not (he's not convinced of this)
But I'll try to put it as simply as I can - um, I control the Lexx with a key -
key? That lives inside me, and only me
DIGBY: Forever and ever?
Forever and ever - well, as long as I'm alive anyway
(He laughs. So
STAN: So, yeah - we flew down here in a moth
Like the kind that flies around at night?
(Prince starts singing, to
the tune of Oh say can you see)
PRINCE: Oh, Stanley
STAN: Well yeah, kinda, except ours are much bigger. Ours are big
enough to carry passengers. Prince stole one
PRINCE: I am
DIGBY: Prince isn't a very nice man
know, I don't even know if Prince is a man. I mean, he used to be the ruler of
this really evil planet called Fire, and he, he would die over and over again,
and every time he'd come back, same as before, except more evil
(Longbore's lab - the exterior of which bears a
striking resemblance to Electropolis. Kai, Longbore, Dougall and assorted geeks.
Tina sets up a transmitter)
TINA: What frequency should I
KAI: It does not matter
TINA: Why not?
KAI: 790 listens to all
frequencies. He will respond to the sound of my voice
(790 appears on a nearby monitor)
790: Oh, breath of
death! Breathe life into me again!
KAI: 790 has an affinity for dead
790: Just one stiff - and he is the stiffest!
(Tina looks at
KAI: May I talk to Stanley?
790: Why would you want
KAI: 790, please tell Stanley that I would like to talk to him
Sadly, you can't
KAI: Why not?
790: He's gone
to the Earth, with Prince
KAI: The same Prince who ruled the planet
790: He looked the same. And he was just as evil. He said his name was
(This name clearly rings a bell with the
KAI: Where did he take Stanley?
790: Out of my sight, and
away from you, which is entirely excellent from my point of view
Isambard Prince is a truly evil man at the head of an evil organisation - the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
KAI: Where would I find him?
In Washington DC
KAI: What is Washington DC?
LONG: The capital city of

LONG: Where are you going?
KAI: To fins Stan and
(Kai carries on walking to the door)
790: Kai! Kai!
Don't leave. We have so much more to talk about. Kai! Talk to me. Kai!
LONG: You promised to help us leave this planet. The dead clearly do
not keep their promises
(Kai stops, thinks about this, then walks
back to the monitor)
790: Yes, beloved
KAI: I want you to search all electromagnetic signals on this
planet for amy information that will help me locate Stan and Xev
790: I can't
KAI: Why not?
790: I'm too busy - dreaming of you
KAI: Do you love me,
KAI: Then you will do as I say, and help me find Xev and
790: Oh, all right then - but under protest!
KAI: And 790 - I want
you to tell these people everything they need to know to be able to leave this
planet in the way they want
(The geeks all cheer)
You could have asked me to do something difficult at least
LONG: We need to
leave this planet in the next few months. Teach us how to build a space vessel
capable of carrying us safely to another life bearing planet
790: You can't
LONG: But you just said to Kai that it was not difficult
course it's not difficult - and of course you can't build one because this is a
type 13 planet in its final stage. You simply do not have the technology to
create such a vessel. However - you do have the rough technology to build big
machines, which can build smaller machines which can build the tiny machines
capable of constructing the vessel you need

(Meanwhile, back in prison, it's time for the obligatory shower
scene. Xev hangs her costume on a hook and gets into the
HEIDI: You do a good job now
(She and the guards
watch, as Xev and some other inmates shower - in the best possible taste, of
course. Heidi holds up new panties)
(The guards stop the water. Xev covers her breasts with her
hands, turns and walks to Heidi)
XEV: I want to wear my own
HEIDI: I hate to disappoint you, but one does not get to wear what
one wants in the Texas prison system
(Xev is not happy, but she takes
the panties, and orange overalls)
(On the Lexx, 790 is watching Stan and
Digby on the view screen)
STAN: Anyway, like I was saying Prince
stole a moth, flew it down here
STAN: Well, moths aren't that
hard to fly really, you just point the joystick where you want, and - off you
(790 reports back to Kai)
790: Oh, black and
KAI: What is it, 790?
790: My good deed for the
(790 shows him the Stan footage)
STAN: Yeah, we flew
down in a moth and then flew into a little building underground, then he took me
up, put me up here beside you
DIGBY: Where's your moth shuttle now?
I don't know. Somewhere right around here, I hope
KAI: Thank you, 790. What
is Stanley's location?
790: I don't know. Somewhere on that stupid
KAI: Where exactly?
790: I don't know! I suppose I could trace the
signal and figure it out eventually - if I really had to. But I would have to
analyse endless possibilities, which is just a huge waste of time
KAI: 790 -
waste the time, and inform me of Stanley Tweedle's precise location as soon as
you have determined it
(In the bunker, Prince takes a
crane lift up to Stan)
PRINCE: Hello, captain
PRINCE: Finally - what?
STAN: Finally I get off this wall. This
is really uncomfortable, you know
PRINCE: Sadly - for you at least - I'm not
here to release you. At least, not in the way that you would like. Now - who
shall I drop to his death first? The security guard 4th class, or the pathetic
little science student?
STAN: Drop the pathetic little science
PRINCE: Perhaps, but not quite yet. First, there's an experiment I
want to try with you, Stanley
PRINCE: Yes Stanley. You
have the key, to the Lexx. I want it
STAN: No way, pal
PRINCE: Yes way,
Stanley. Because the only way I can be one hundred percent certain that when the
Lexx leaves this planet I will be onboard, is for me to have the key
you wanna make a deal?
PRINCE: No - I want to kill you. And at your moment of
death, in theory anyway, the key will fly from your hand - and into mine. And
I'm about to test that theory right now, by removing your supports and dropping
you to your death on the concrete floor below
(Prince presses some
buttons on a control pad. The arm and leg restraints on Stan and Digby retract,
leaving them balanced on the foot supports)
DIGBY: You can't kill him! He's an Ostral B hero
PRINCE: Is he
STAN: Yeah, and the key might go into him instead of you
Precisely, and that's why he is a very important part of this experiment.
Because if the key does go into him, I shall press a second button and drop the
pathetic little science student to his death
STAN: The key still won't go
PRINCE: We'll see
STAN: It won't go into you because it
PRINCE: Why not?
STAN: Because you're not alive. The key can only
go into somebody who's really alive, and that means it's gonna find someone
PRINCE: I think I'm really alive
STAN: Yeah, but you're not sure, are
PRINCE: Perhaps (smiles) Still, this is an awfully good way to
(Prince pushes another button, and Stan's foot supports
start to pull back into the wall - but on the Lexx, 790 is busy interfering with
circuits. Prince tries again - the foot supports go, but the neck restraint
re-emerges. Stan grabs onto it as he falls - but the key flows from his hand. It
flies past Prince, and into Digby)
(The prison - a large room, with P4X
Mess painted on the wall. There are rows of prisoners on benches. Xev is sitting
with her hands around her feet, looking at a piece of paper and a pen. At the
front of the room is a blackboard, with girls names written on it. Heidi is
standing there, with her husband the warden - a bored man, dictating from a
WARDEN: "My name is" - then just pick a name from the
list - Tiffany, Melanie, any name, it doesn't matter. "I am sixteen years old,
with blue eyes and blonde hair"
HEIDI: Or green eyes and red hair, they like
WARDEN: "I am a junior in high school. I have no boyfriend, because
I study all the time - "
PRISON: How do you spell school?
S-c-h-o-o-l (laughs) and look - don't worry about the spelling. You
think they read the letters? All they want is your panties, to do whatever it is
they - I don't really want to think about it. All you need to know is that
inmates in this facility will not receive clean underwear unless they've handed
in their dirty ones with one of these nice little letters attached. Am I making
myself clear? Good. Where was I?
HEIDI: "I have no boyfriend"
have no boyfriend, because I study all the time to get good grades" (laughs)
which is something none of you ever did. Anyway - "Someday I want to fall
in love with a strong and handsome businessman, with lots and lots of

She looks at Xev)
LOMEA: You're pretty
(Xev looks at her.
Lomea then looks at the warden)
LOMEA: You're sick
learning to live with it. What do you want, my beloved darling
LOMEA: Who is she?
HEIDI: That's Xev of B3K. She's from another
WARDEN: And she's already killed four people, so don't get too
(Lomea sucks her finger at Xev)
WARDEN: "I hope you
enjoy my panties. They are my favourite pair, which my mother gave me on my
birthday. I only wore them once. I like to make people happy" Love, Tiffany,

anything down - you haven't written anything down! Look at her paper, it's

XEV: I'm leaving, so -

HEIDI: If only it were that simple

whistle. A guard arrives, and stops Xev)
HEIDI: Put her in the hold!
That filly needs to be broken
(Xev is taken away. Lomea
WARDEN: Whatever it is that goes on in that girl's mind
comes entirely from your side of the family
HEIDI: She's no daughter of mine,
she comes from some kind of parallel universe
WARDEN: And you
(Two guards take Xev downstairs, her arms chained to her
waist. She struggles and cries out, but they throw her into a narrow cell, just
big enough for a bed and a bucket)
(Stan is still dangling from the neck
restraint. Prince tries the buttons again)
PRINCE: It doesn't appear
to be working. Nevertheless, the first part of my little experiment is now
complete. The key has left you, Stanley, but unfortunately has transferred
itself to the pathetic little science student instead of me. However, before I
can start the second part of my experiment, which is to drop that science
student to his death, perhaps I ought to cut you down first. After all, we don't
want the key returning to you now, do we?
STAN: Please Prince, please I'll do
anything you want, anything!
DIGBY: I'll do it
STAN: Hey hey, kid, kid,
we're friends, right?
DIGBY: I'll cut his fingers off
PRINCE: Why do you
DIGBY: I don't know, I just do for some reason. Please Mr Prince - I
want to kill him
STAN: Hey hey hey! Sulphur Louisiana, Ostral B,
PRINCE: What a bad choice. I think I rather like
(Prince moves the crane across to Digby, opens the gate and holds
out his hand. Digby shakes hands, and steps onto the crane - then he flicks a
blade out of his wristwatch, stabs Prince in the back, and kicks him off the
STAN: Thatta boy!
(Digby lowers the crane to the
STAN: Hey, I was kidding! I really do like
(Prince has landed on his back on a crate. He is not
moving, and there is a trickle of blood coming from his mouth. Digby clambers
onto him, checks his pockets. He finds the phial of water which Prince always
had with him on Fire, but he leaves that, and just takes Prince's ATF ID
DIGBY: Looks like your little science student isn't so
pathetic after all
(He gets down and runs to the
STAN: Hey kid! Kid, please come back, get me down outta
(But Digby opens the door with Prince's card, and
STAN: I can't hold on here!
(In prison, Xev is
having a restless night. Someone opens her cell door, strokes her face - then
clamps a hand over her mouth. Xev wakes and struggles, but more than one person
holds her down)
(Stan is still dangling. He manages to reach down and
pull his boot off. He drops it down at the crane - but it misses the
STAN: Come on Stan. Come on, you can do it
reaches for his other boot, and tries again. This time the boot hits the right
button, and the crane comes up to him)
STAN: Thank you thank you
thank you thank you! Nice bootie, nice bootie
(He clambers onto the
crane, puts his boots back on, and lowers the crane to the
STAN: Ha ha. Can't fool Stan
(He gets off the
crane and walks over to Prince, smiling)
STAN: So, you were mortal
(He leans over Prince, laughing - )
Weren't you, Prince?
( - and Prince opens his eyes. Stan jumps
PRINCE: Don't be so sure, Stanley. However, I do now better
understand the meaning of the word pain (he winces) Stanley - we must
stop the boy

PRINCE: Yes - you and me. The boy intends to
steal the Lexx from the two of us
STAN: He intends to escape with

PRINCE: Stanley - you
are a fool. Why don't you listen to someone who knows human nature better than
(Stan hits Prince's hand away and walks off)
Goodbye, Prince. I'm outta here
PRINCE: Stanley - where are you
STAN: As far away from you as I can get
(Stan hasn't thought about this)
PRINCE: I know
where the moth is. Do you? (laughs)
(Xev is standing in a spotlight,
somewhere dark. She hears a voice)
LOMEA: Tell us your story
I'm Xev Bellringer

XEV: My story? After I was abandoned by my parents as a
child, I grew up in a box, on the planet B3K, which is in the Light

site, which has a border of chains, and little animated handcuffs, and scantily
clad women - Lomia's Lair)

Unfortunately, the Light Universe doesn't exist anymore. It was destroyed by
robotic drone arms under the control of the evil Bio-Vizier Mantrid. On the
Cluster, I was sentenced to become a love slave. I was given a beautiful body
and programmed to fall totally in love with the first man I saw. But the
operation went wrong. I got the body. A robot head, 790, got the mental
programming I was supposed to get and now he's totally in love with a dead man -
790: And proud of it!
KAI: Where does it come from?
LONG: P4X is a bandit site
TINA: Every time it appears it has a
different computer address
XEV: You have to understand, I was programmed by a
machine to be the perfect woman, to make a man happy through physical love - but
I never get the chance. Every time I'm close to love, something goes wrong. I'm
not a love slave - I'm a loveless slave. I have the perfect body, but I cannot
find myself a man. I thought I loved Kai, and maybe I still do (sadly)
but I have learned that I cannot find love

790: I can't! It's everywhere. Who cares about her anyway? Think
KAI: Locate the origin of the signal
790: OK, OK, I'll
XEV: Every night when I go to sleep, I dream of finding myself hot and
wet and naked in bed with a strong and well equipped man
790: I don't know. Somewhere very close to where you are now, in the
Earth state of Texas. But that's the best I can do - for a while anyway
Thank you 790

cries) I have to find him. And someday I will find him

to stand, while Prince checks his pockets)
STAN: Why am I doing
this? You're the most evil person I ever met, I can't believe I'm helping

others. He must have taken it
PRINCE: My key card. That's how
he got out

GUARD: Hey - that's not a toy, kid
DIGBY: My father went to
the room where the secret special space moth is kept. Where is it?
Here, give me the gun and I'll tell you
DIGBY: You tell me where the moth is,
and I'll give it to you
GUARD: Back down this way, till you hit room 1A. Now
give it to me
(Digby shoots the guard, repeatedly)
You asked for it
(He tucks the gun into the back of his pyjama
bottoms. Two more guards race around the corner. He puts on the tears again,
then shoots them while they are checking on the other guard's body. He takes
their guns as well)
STAN: So what do we do now?
PRINCE: We wait
for him to find the moth
STAN: Oh, what good is that gonna do us?
The moth is here, Stanley
PRINCE: Over there, in that corner
STAN: Well then why did we try
to open the door?
PRINCE: In order to get help
STAN: Oh, for yourself,
right? Not for me, because if the moth is already here, I didn't need to go
anywhere, did I?
STAN: Oh you really are

along a passageway - with a plastic bag full of guns)

web cam, and watching the image of her tongue on the monitor. Xev struggles as
four of the prisoners chain her arms and legs to a mattress. Xev is now wearing
a white bra and panties. Lomea has some Goth friends with her)

picture of Xev on the front page, and a report on the trailer park shooting. Kai

leather harness and mask, chained to a X shaped frame. Lomea is delighted, makes
adjustments to his crotch. He struggles)

separate beds. He is watching P4X)

of the bedroom)

at the other guard)

code, and the door opens)

the gun into his bag)

centre of the room - and sees Stan)
You came back!

shoots at Stan, who runs for cover. Digby heads for the moth, climbs

is coming through, approving Xev for release. Kai aims his brace at the lock,
then Heidi arrives, opens the door)

you want Xev for?

(In the bunker,
Digby's moth takes off)
PRINCE: Don't just stand there, Stanley.
He'll take the Lexx and leave without us
STAN: Hey kid, stop! You can't fly
the Lexx without me
DIGBY: You said all that's needed is the key to fly it,
and I have the key, right?
(Digby holds up his hand, which
STAN: Yeah, but listen, you won't know what to do. You need
my superior intelligence! You can't leave me here, I'm an Ostral B

leave me here on this stupid planet, you can't leave me here with

on the panel near the door

starts to close)

most powerful weapon ever built, and I am leaving this planet forever! I am the
captain of - No!

their hands to it, but it ignores Prince and returns to Stan, who
