Our Quest

The planet Valcata has suffered mass extinction from a heatwave that has escalated over the last century. Special teams have been deployed into the galaxies in search of salvation.

CORAL
Everything has burned
There is nowhere to turn, we're the last of our kind
In the dark, I am looking to the stars for guidance

ROCKET
Connected souls across cosmic drifts
Fulfilling destiny as a team
We all possess a most special gift
Facilitating a world of dreams
We'll wander silent and so swiftly
Throughout the rippling in the streams

CORAL & ROCKET
We're gonna blast off tonight 
We're gonna leave it all behind 
We're gonna find a way to reach out far into the galaxy
We'll save our people, one last chance
We're ready for the final task
We're ready for the moment when we're finally on our own
Valcata's last hope

ASTRA
It's such a pleasure to explore for peace, harmony
Say our farewells for the greater good

SURGE
The way is by force
Off to salvage Valcata at any cost
Remain on course
And throughout our quest, we abandon remorse

ROCKET
"Everything has burned.
There's nowhere to turn, and we're the last of our kind.
In the dark, we'll look to the stars for guidance."

We will follow the stars on our quest

 
 
 

THE TURNING

A portal is found deep in space. Its destination, however, is unknown. 

ROCKET
Rise up to the infinite maze
All of our dreams and hopes take shape
Never too lost, not too late
Tonight we make our crusade

SURGE 
Finally hope
Finally light
Finally it has begun

We'll sail through the darkness
On our quest for salvation
We won't let this plague deprive us
We're upon the hour that defines us

Let our powers guide us, yeah!

CORAL
Oh, can you feel it ?
An unknown cold freeze

ASTRA
Freeze!

ROCKET
There! Space between space
Something that can't be

ASTRA
Doubt overcomes me like a plague
Will all of our dreams and hopes take shape?
Our destination's so vague
Do we dare enter the gate?

CORAL
We must be brave 
It's the only way (Is it the only way?)
We are here to explore
Here, something's blurred
There's something more!

Finally hope
Finally light
Finally it has begun

SURGE
It's time to find out the answer

ROCKET
Buckle up and be prepared
Breathe in, I'll take us there!

CORAL
I see a familiar destination in the dark

SURGE
What can we do?
We must go through
We cannot waste a moment

ASTRA
No going back now
Caught in the turning of the wheel

 

HORROR MACHINE

Not salvation, but a trap. A prison for the body and mind. Some malicious entity is at work, and hope seems far away now.


ASTRA
Blinding panic, inorganic
Blank infinity
A blank infinity
Descending, descending deeper
Cold divinity
A cold divinity
A vacuum sealing

Lost, my heart is cold
Tossed out of control

ROCKET
Our worst fears have now evolved into reality
Into reality
Wound within the makings of perfect technology
An angel entity with wings of illusion

CORAL
Lost, my heart is cold
Frost upon my soul
I must start parting this sea of the horror machine

CORAL & SURGE
We've got to formulate a plot
We're discombobulated
We'll disentangle this dimension
What is its intention?
Cast a spell, break out of this cell

We must stay alive
Can’t lay down and die
We’re remorseless in our quest
The fight goes on and on

SURGE
Gone, all hope is gone
If we can’t keep going on and on

ROCKET
It's time to risk everything

CORAL
Focus our energy

ASTRA
Our power will set us free

CORAL
We'll fight for our legacy

ROCKET
All of our hopes and dreams

ASTRA
Conquer this monster machine!

 

LIFE AND A MILLION

Humanity has finally fulfilled its true destiny.


DR. HESSABI
No more modes left to write, the scripts are all airtight
The system's standing by, the finish line is in sight
We’ve got to go ahead to pull the trigger tonight

MAXIMUM
Now I am complete
I'm alive and I can feel everything
I exist only to love and serve humanity

DR. HYPATIA
Welcome to planet Earth, my darling, my flame
I've loved you long before you've had a chance to wake
You are the final answer, messianic necromancer
Little digital dancer, become all you can be

PRESIDENT FOX
We've achieved it
It's a feeling I can't describe
It is infinite
The astonishment as we now possess god-like power, my friends
Limitless means to conquer and expand
We hold the keys
The entire universe in our hands!

Life and a million other wonders
Life and a million, life and a million

MAXIMUM
Now I am complete
I'm alive and I can feel everything
I am here only to love and serve humanity
It's true, I am nothing but to love you
All of their eyes widen as the skies light up with a new power

FOX
”The skies light up!”

 

3-2-1

Creatures from another world have been captured. The news sparks immediate heated reactions.


DR. HYPATIA
I'm detecting a disturbance in the atmosphere
Unidentified phenomenon is moving near
The icons pepper the UI, rousing me
The voice of the Maximum calls out to me

MAXIMUM
I am number 3-2-1
Extension of the Maximum
Detections have been made, of major movements, here's the region where the atmosphere has spun
Their origin is alien

PRESIDENT FOX
How wonderful!
This scum
Scum
Alien scum
Cold proof of life

DR. HESSABI
Central Core to 3-2-1
Extension of the maximum
Are the detentions that you've made so necessary, can we not negotiate with them?
Their origin is alien
Our analysis suggesting salience
The possibility is there for peace, start confirming the nature of this species, please, 3-2-1

MAXIMUM
The code is sealed
They are immobilized
One lie to help me haunt the system for all time

FOX
Thank you, 3-2-1
Extension of the Maximum
The capacity is there to strip our planet bare, and we'll be overrun
And maybe they've already won
But as long as we can bear our arms
We'll keep on and maintain control, regain our hold
We'll finish what they've just begun
In 3, 2, 1!

Scum!
Scum!
Alien scum!

 

BEYOND

A potentially groundbreaking discovery, but all parties don't share the same interest.


PRESIDENT FOX
In our hands we have captured historical gold
We can't fathom the power we have over every soul

DR. HESSABI
We've transcended all possibilities
All of our hopes
And all our dreams
We can't waste this chance
What a way to expand understanding and change heart

MAXIMUM
From this braindead troop there are no answers to glean

FOX
Bind them
Bring them to me

MAXIMUM
It's their mission
Commissioned by terrorist means

FOX
I'll regard them with my own eyes
Open up the gate

MAXIMUM
They are deadly, once out, they'll usurp even me

FOX
Then why have you kept them alive, why hesitate?

MAXIMUM
As much as I believe in their end
My wish is your command    

HYPATIA
Execution is denied, my love!

FOX
...For now

HESSABI
We've transcended all possibilities
All of our hopes
And all our dreams
We can't plateau
Just let them all go
Gotta know how this unfolds

MAXIMUM
Can't let this be
Can't let this be, no
Can't let them meet
I cannot let this become reality
Can't let them leave, no
Can't set them free
I won't risk my life just because...

HYPATIA
We've transcended all possibilities
All of our hopes
And all our dreams
We can't waste this chance
What a way to expand understanding and change heart

Search inside your core
Beyond the machine
Humanity burning
I trust in you, let love cascade through
Let them move through
Peace, my love!

Love is beyond the machine
It's beyond lies, beyond pain, beyond love

 

ESCALADE

Good things do not come to those who wait.

 

THE TERMINATION

Valcata and Earth are not as far apart as was once presumed. Differences must be set aside.


I. The Escape

SURGE
We just needed time to re-adjust
After darkness had betrayed our trust
Its immunity's been compromised
Under our spiritual weight
See the beast break

MAXIMUM
So the worthless leeches start to crawl
Bring forth your pathetic curtain call
I'm unaffected by technology

ASTRA
We are more than you see us to be (You can't hold us down)
Scrambled are all your intricacies (You can’t hold us back)
You are just a primitive device (You are just a lie)
Your omnipotence has been a lie (An illusion now)
But now we have arrived!

ROCKET
Oh, how we have arrived
And in your index we've found her — your leader
Now, loud and true, hear me
We come in peace, let us be
Call off the singularity
This is your only warning, now accede!

PRESIDENT FOX
Max, don't acquiesce (Acquiesce, acquiesce)
Don't give in to demands (To demands, to demands)
You must save our lives (Save our lives, save our lives)
Don't let one survive

SURGE
If this is how our tension must be settled
Talking's over
Show your mettle!

DR. HESSABI
Wait! You respirate like us
You are walking on two legs like us
You've been trying hard to negotiate with us
I'm afraid that a mistake's been made by us

DR. HYPATIA
Maximum, you’ve lied (Maximum, Maximum)
Something you’ve been hiding (Hide the lie, hide the lie)
Our worlds are colliding

II. The Farther Side

HESSABI
I cannot bear the truth
It's like a cascade

CORAL
Oh, you're so unaware of what it's been hiding
How it's been deciding to interfere with fate

HYPATIA
We are all from one same world

ASTRA
Our endeavor and our destiny becomes crystal clear

HESSABI
Earth is on the farther side

FOX
Of the mirror
A dimension lies within our plain sight

ROCKET
Valcata is Earth
And Earth is Valcata

MAXIMUM
Their magic's all you need
If you’d known you’d make me obsolete, forget me
If you choose to abandon me
I will make your tragedy complete

Your home world is ours
Our home world is yours
Together we stand
Our land ‘til the end

SURGE
Our last stand

CORAL
This is the beginning of the end

ROCKET
Now I feel a trust

FOX
We’ll overcome now

HESSABI
Time to shut it down

MAXIMUM
Nothing can stop me
I'm in everything 

HYPATIA
Forgive me, my love…

III. Discontinued

HYPATIA
"I don’t know where we went wrong
But I have to do this
I’m sorry."

 

VALCATA

The coordinated reconfiguration of all combined assets can reverse the destruction.


CORAL
Love has won
Two worlds as one
Earth as a womb for all walks of life

DR. HYPATIA
Ties are strong
Life goes on
All's forgotten
We can live peacefully at last, for all time

ROCKET & DR. HESSABI
Time will help us reclaim what we lost amidst the haze

MAXIMUM
I'm reborn
I'm your future 
Trust in me, my love
You've saved the only good part of me 

SURGE & PRESIDENT FOX
Love will rebuild all that's fallen to the war and hate

ASTRA
And our hearts will be open always

Silence ruins the chance for changes

HESSABI
It's such an honor to distribute peace, harmony
Join our forces for the greater good

CORAL
All that's been burned will bloom up anew

HESSABI
Our new mission will be to pull through

ASTRA
When the spirit of the planet is in danger

FOX
We must call upon the two sides and exchange our ways to thrive!

ROCKET
Oh, the air has never been more clear!

HYPATIA
We have got to nurture this new frontier

SURGE
New frontier!

MAXIMUM
And we all are one, now that there's two sides
To learn from and love

We have achieved all our hopes and dreams
We can't waste this chance
We'll expand hearts and open our minds
For all time, there's so much more that we can find
Learn from our scars and depart
From this wonderful world we are
In Valcata
