Incident At The Cluster
By Karmin St. Jean

 

Lexx - The Dark Zone/Tales From A Parallel Universe
Incident At The Cluster
---------------------------------------------------
He was home. There was no doubt about it. The stifling air,
the stink of the protein banks.

Stanley Tweedle sighed and looked around.

"Lexx," he asked, "why did we land?"

"I have been scanning the planet," Lexx replied, "and while much
of the population is corrupt and evil, there are people here who
have not been tainted by His Shadow."

"Have you awakened Kai?" Stanley asked.

"I have." The Lexx replied. "Unfortunately, he went into shock
when we arrived. Apparently his mind could not cope with the
centuries of killing he did under His Shadow."

"We'll have to hide him someplace until he revives." Xev
realized. "If they find him before we're ready.."

"I will transport him to an appropriate location."

Stanley watched as Kai vanished from the floor by his
cryo-coffin. Then, he armed himself and Xev with weapons he'd
acquired. "Okay, let's go. Lexx, notify Kai of our position once
he is revived."

"As you command, Captain." Lexx agreed.

*****

In the time since Stan, Zev, and Kai had left the Cluster, the
Courtrooms had gone from semi-holographic to completely
holographic. This caused a lot of problems, men were sentenced to
death for nearly every problem, even ones that previously only
got a cauterization or triple donor sentence.

The room where lesser sentences was also upgraded in the same
way. This prevented those who carried out the sentences upon the
'criminals' from being killed in some mishap, and also meant they
didn't have to be paid.

Since they were activated by the presence of a humanoid body on
the table, regardless of gender or specific race, there had been
a number of mishaps resulting in the 'womanization' of male
fugitives who had ducked into the machines to elude evisceration.

By some strange coincidence, or perhaps in an attempt to
disguise the Last of the Brunnen-G, Lexx had transported Kai onto
the very table in question.


Incident At The Cluster (part 2)
----------------------------------------------------

"Xev," Stan asked as they made their way into the heart of
the Cluster, "do you reall think this is a good idea."

"No." Xev replied. "That's why its the best one. Because its just
so stupid that no one will ever expect us to do it."

"I hope you're right." Stan fidgetted. "But let's say Lexx is
right, how do we find these pockets of resistance and convince
them that we're not agents of His Divine Shadow."

"We'll just have to tell them the truth."

"That we've come from the Dark Zone with the Brunnen-G of the
prophecy and that we're here to save them. Look at me. Do I
*look* like I could be part of the great Prophecy? Plus we have
no idea where Lexx transported Kai."

"That is a problem." Xev replied. "Especially if..."

"If..." Stan was afraid to ask.

"If somehow His Shadow had taken control of the Lexx." Xev
replied.

"You think its a trap of some kind?" Stan was suddenly very
nervous.

"His Shadow didn't have control of the Lexx." another woman said
from behind them.

Stan and Xev turned.

Stan's jaw hit the floor so hard it nearly made a hole where it
landed.

The woman was tall, slender but not skinny, with a figure that
would make even the most devoted clerics stop and take notice.
Her blue-black hair was worn about her head except for the braid
that ran to the small of her back.

The hair, and the familiar outfit she wore, were what had almost
made Stan break the floor with his jaw.

"Kai?!" he and Xev asked.


Kai nodded. "Now that you both know its me..." she reached up and
freed her hair from its confinement. It cascaded down her back
and around her shoulders like a dark halo.

Stan was mesmerized. "You're beautiful." he said, meaning it.

"I suggest you concentrate on the business at hand." Kai
replied, coldly. "There are people here who need our help. I
suggest you think of them instead of just youself."

Stan nodded and followed Kai and Xev down the hall.

Rounding the third corner, they bumped into two of the frog-like
sentries who roamed the corridors. It was virtually impossible to
walk through this building without walking into them.

The sentries looked at Kai and Xev, puzzled, as they checked
their fugitive databanks.

"You are not fugitives."

"No, we aren't."

"Why are you here at the trial center?"

"We're new here and we got lost. We thought this was an official
building and there would be maps of the city here." Xev replied.

"This building is off limits to the public." the sentry informed
them. "You will leave at once or you will be arrested for
criminal tresspass."

"Yes, sir." Xev saluted.

Xev, Kai, and Stan started to leave. They had got to the end of
the corridor when the sentries realized they'd forgotten to check
out Stan.

"Stanley Tweedle. Stop. You cannot escape."

"RUN!" Stan screamed, taking off as fast as his legs could carry
him.

Xev and Kai followed. They ran up one corridor, down another, up
one flight of stairs, down half another. Finally, they arrived at
one of the docking bays.

"Stan, Xev," Kai said, "I have something I need to do. You two
get to the trial rooms. Try to free as many as you can. They'll
make very good allies."

"Where are you going?" Xev asked.

"My destiny is already chosen for me." Kai told them.

Stan grabbed Kai and kissed her, hard, upon her lips. "Be
careful." He told her.

Kai smiled, fiercely. "I will." She replied.
