An Alternate Sequel To New Who

Image result for Peter Capaldi

Yes you read that right. First off I’d like to apologise for the delays this week in the usual series. Again its simply as a result of all the craziness with Chibnall’s latest retcon of Doctor Who, that I’ve been writing about and talking about. (Next week will see 5 stories published, Professor Fang, The Circus Master, 2 episodes of King Kong and Doctor Who to make up for everything being delayed this week.)

All I can say for the delay’s is that its not every week that you see the destruction of a childhood favourite.

Over the last week I’ve not only written a lot about Doctor Who, but I’ve also developed an idea for a limited series. Don’t worry this will not be published this year. (I’ve got too many projects on the go right now, it would be ridiculous to start a new one.)

This project will be released some time next year. It will be an alternate sequel, as well as a finale to New Who.

The Chibnall retcon has made me see New Who in a new light, in that whilst I still don’t think that New Who works as a sequel to the original, I think its a shame that the Timeless Child retcon has ruined New Who as a series in its own right.

So much of what I liked from New Who (and yes there was a lot I liked from it.) Has lost its impact.

The classic “NO SIR ALL 13” moment, Tennant, Smith and Hurt realising they have to save Gallifrey and at least “try and fail at doing the right thing,” Matt bravely facing down the Daleks when he is on his last life. Even the Doctor being the last of his kind has been tainted by the revelation that he was never a Time Lord.

So I have decided to do my own ending for New Who that will ignore Jodie’s entire era. Previously I discussed including the 12th Doctor in a crossover story called The Time Travellers Bar, and I will still be doing that, but I have now decided to also do a story about the 12th Doctor, that also ties up all of New Who’s loose ends as well as erasing the 13th Doctor.

This story titled “The Final End.” Will be set after The Doctor Falls, but before The Time Travellers Bar.

It will reveal that the 12th Doctor was able to stave off his regeneration, but not only did he nearly die as a result, but he lost the ability to regenerate too.

After his botched regeneration he headed for earth where Osgood and Kate helped him to recover. Following this, he then worked at UNIT for a while.

This story will see the new Dalek empire attempt to find the Moment after the Doctor hid it following the Time War. Since the Doctor didn’t have the machine in the TARDIS, and he certainly couldn’t have taken it back to Gallifrey, it has to be out there somewhere.

This will be a much longer story than normal. If you can compare my alternate sequel to Classic Who to a tv series, then this will be like a movie, in length and scope.

It will include as many New Who characters as possible, and resolve the following unanswered questions from New Who.

What happened to the Zygons? There are 20 million of them on earth. Surely if earth was ever attacked again, wouldn’t they want to protect it? It annoyed me that this question was never asked in The Monks Trilogy. We will also be answering which Osgood went pop too.

Why have the Daleks not overrun the universe? By the point of Journey’s End, the Daleks have reached a point where they are more than capable of destroying every universe, yet in the Capaldi era they go back to being mere intergalactic conquerors?

I originally rationalised this as being because the paradigm that recreated the Daleks in Victory was from a more primitive time, and the monsters had to basically restart from scratch. However Davros was shown to be working with them in The Magician’s Apprentice, in which case through him they should have learned the secrets of the reality bomb.

What about Rassilon? Where did he escape too? Who was the minister of war that Morven Christie’s lovable fangirl talked about?

What became of Vastra, Jenny and Strax?

All of these questions will be answered and more as we see the Doctor of M-Space’s final battle against the Daleks. This will not only resolve plot points from the Capaldi era, but the Eccelston era too.

Many major characters from past era’s of New Who will be appearing too, including perhaps most surprisingly of all Missy.

Now its obvious to anyone who has read my posts I am NO fan of Missy as an incarnation of the Master.

However since this story is set in a continuity where New Who and Classic Who take place in two separate realities,  then Missy is not the classic era Master, so I can write her as a separate character. There was some potential in Missy’s redemption arc, and so this story will feature Missy from an earlier point than the Doctor, after he decision to turn good, but before the mission with the Cybermen.

She will be a big part of the story and treated respectfully. I believe strongly in treating other people’s characters with respect, so she will not be made fun of or treated as a character of fun. I will also not be interfering in her arc. As far as I’m concerned she is dead at the end of The Doctor Falls.

This story will not interfere in my other alternate sequel series, which will still carry on.

It is of course up to you to decide if this story is canon or not, but I want to at least be as respectful to the first few years of New Who, and resolve the Doctors conflict with the Daleks from Eccelston to Capaldi in a way that hopefully does it justice.

Doctor Who: The Fire of the Daleks: Part 5

“She’s just a child”

“I don’t care. You sent me down. You betrayed me when I tried to help you.”

In the middle of the war zone the city had become, this former prisoner had managed to track down the woman who he hated more than anyone else on Heglozia, Fastera. The prisoner had been in love with Fastera for almost his entire life, and during the famine the two had entered into a relationship. Unfortunately however when Fastera’s daughter had stolen some food out of desperation, she framed the former prisoner for the theft.

She had no choice. Under Asica’s laws, Fastera’s daughter would have gone to prison and she couldn’t bare to lose her child. Every night she had felt guilt over her actions, but she didn’t regret them. Until now that is. Fastera’s daughter had thrown herself in front of her mother and pleaded with the former prisoner. Fastera did not fear death, but she didn’t want her daughter to see her die and begged her former lover to let her child go.

“I loved you”. The former prisoner said as he prepared to fire.

“I’m sorry” Fastera said, genuinely. “I didn’t want to hurt you. I just couldn’t lose her. Please don’t let her see this.”

Fastera’s daughter cried and pleaded. “Don’t kill my mum. It was my fault I’m sorry, please.”

The former prisoner still pointed his gun at Fastera, but after a few moments he lowered it.

“You’d better get out of here”. He said. “The streets aren’t safe.” He woud never really have done it. He had been a good man once. Sadly however like most of the people on this planet the desperation of the war had changed him, made him a mere shadow of his former self.  Neither Fastera or her daughter even acknowledged what the former prisoner said however. Instead they both stared up at the sky in absolute horror. As the prisoner turned around he saw the most terrifying sight he had ever seen. Hundreds of thousands of Daleks flying toward the city. No one else below had noticed. They were all too busy fighting and killing each other.

The prisoner and Fastera ran through the chaos shouting at everyone to flee but it was no use. In a matter of seconds the Daleks were over the city and started to open fire.

“EXTERMINATE” the monsters all started to shout in unison as their rays cut down men, women, even children and levelled entire buildings. There was nowhere to hide from the monsters. Each individual Daleks ray would cover an area of 40 feet and would melt absolutely everything it came into contact with. Some tried to fight back, including the prisoner, but they were the first to be cut down. In less than twenty minutes all that was left of the city were ruins and flames. Only a handful of civillians had managed to flee to the wilderness outside, Fastera and her daughter among them. They tried to hide under some nearby rocks, as more and more Daleks descended from the sky.

“ALL HEGLOZIANS MUST BE EXTERMINATED” A black Dalek that hovered in the centre of the swarm of Daleks screeched. “THERE WILL BE NO PRISONERS. THIS PLANET WILL BE CLEANSED!”

“It can’t be, it can’t” one of the civillians said from behind. “They’re here’ we’re doomed. Our entire world.” He then put a gun to his head. The others tried to stop him but he was too far gone.

“I’m ending it on my own terms than dying at the mercy of those monsters” He said before blowing his head off.

Unfortunately his gunshot alerted the Daleks and they swarmed the few survivors who all ran in different directions only to each be gunned down. Fastera and her daughter were the last two to be cornered by the Daleks.

The two embraced for their final moments. Fastera much like her former lover was not a bad person. She had just been forced to go to such extreme lengths to protect her daughter. Now it had all be for nothing.

“EXTERMINATE!”

The Doctor, Dana and Asica stared at the ruins of the generator for a few seconds, none of them sure what their next move was.

“We need to get back to the palace.” The Doctor said.

“You what? Why?” Asica replied.

“Zoella, she sacrificed herself so we could get away. If there’s a chance she’s still alive we have to help her.”

“What about the people out there?” Asica asked.

The Doctor hesitated to respond. “We have to focus on helping who we can now.”

“What are you saying? That there is no hope for my people.”

“I don’t think there’s hope for any of us now. If the Daleks find the TARDIS before we do, we’re finished.”

“Then shouldn’t we reach the TARDIS first” Dana said.

“We’d never make it. It’s across so much open field, we’d be cut down. At the very least we have to find some other form of transport first.”

Suddenly the trio heard several screams down the corridor followed by the all too familiar battle cry of the Daleks.

“EXTERMINATE, EXTERMINATE!”

“We have to get out of here now” the Doctor said as he darted down the corridor. As the trio ran they heard the sound of several of the rebels pleading, begging with the Daleks, that they just wanted the fighting to end only to be gunned down.

The trio soon came across the young rebel woman whose kneecap Asica had shot.

“Please help me” she pleaded with the three of them. “They’re killing everybody.”

“Now you want my help? You fools helped that monster destroy the generator.” Asica said bitterly.

“We can’t just leave her” Dana protested.

“She deserves it. Besides she’d only slow us down.” Asica said as he headed down the corridor. The Doctor hesitated for a moment. He knew Asica was right. They needed to get out of here fast, and she had helped to bring the monsters down on them. Still he would never forgive himself if he left her and so the Doctor lifted the young woman up over his shoulders.

The Doctor, Dana and Asica were soon forced to hide in a small room as three Daleks glided by. The rebel girl was whimpering from the pain in her leg, but Dana put her hand over the girls mouth and put her finger over her own lips. The slightest noise and it would be all over for them.

The Doctor couldn’t bare to look at the three Daleks they repulsed him so much. He wanted to tear their putrid, withered bodies from their casings and rip them apart with his bare hands. He wanted to kill every single last one of the monsters not just on this world, but across the galaxy. Still he had to keep his cool. The only option right now was to flee. There was no weaponry on this world that could harm them. If only the Doctor and Dana had arrived earlier in the war when the planets were still united he might have been able to sway the battle in the Heglozians favour. Now he could only hope to help a few of their people escape to another planet.

“They’re gone, we need to move now”. The Doctor said. When the 4 made it outside however they could see hundreds of Daleks above. Fortunately none of the metal monsters noticed them. The Daleks were all heading towards the main cities instead. In the distance the Doctor, Asica, Dana and the rebel girl could see flames and corpses strewn across the wastelands.

“We’re all dead. All of us, there’s nothing we can do” Asica said as he sank to his knees.

“Shh” The Doctor said quietly. “Don’t make a sound. I don’t have time to convince you. Come on.”

The three slowly and quietly walked across the wastelands with Dana looking up at the Daleks to warn the others if any of the metal monsters had noticed them. Unfortunately whilst they were busy looking up at the sky, they failed to notice one of the Daleks creeping up from over a nearby hill.

“STAY WHERE YOU ARE!” The monster shouted.

The Dalek scanned the Doctor and Dana who it felt looked somewhat different to the other inhabitants of this planet. . “YOU ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD! EXPLAIN! EXPLAIN!”

“Well what can I say my life story is one of adventure, discovery and I’m proud to say, one that involves lots and lots of humiliating defeats for the Daleks” the Doctor said in a mock cheeful tone.

Dana quickly reached into the earth and threw a slab of dirt at the Daleks eyestick, temporarily blinding the creature. In its panic it fired, but fortunately its ray missed them. The Doctor placed the young rebel girl on the floor and told her not to move. Dana and Asica meanwhile rushed the Dalek and grabbed it from either side, whilst the Doctor grabbed it from behind. All three struggled to even hold the monster in place its strength was so great. The Dalek quickly swivelled its mid section 360 degrees, knocking all three of them off. Its mid section then turned to face the Doctor, but Dana quickly jumped up and kicked the Dalek with all her might. She barely moved it an inch and nearly broke her foot on the metal. Still she distracted the Dalek long enough for the Doctor to jump up and wrestle with the monster again. Up above the Doctor could see one of the flying Daleks aiming its gun at them. “Watch out” The Time Lord shouted to Dana and Asica as the Dalek above fired. All 3 quickly jumped out of the way only for the Dalek aboves ray to hit the Dalek, the Doctor and the others had been wrestling with instead.

After the Dalek below’s top section blew up, the Doctor grabbed its gun and fired up at the other monsters in the sky. He moved the Dalek gun to full setting which doused the entire area up above with radiation killing 10 Daleks at once.

The young rebel woman meanwhile had managed to limp to safety behind a nearby rock. The Doctor tried to run towards her, but one of the surviving Daleks flew there first. The Doctor tried to shoot first but the Dalek managed to blast the young woman on full power. The Doctor, Dana and Asica were barely able to scramble to safety as the entire area was overrun with radiation, and Asica was still caught in the very edges of the rays blast which singed his skin and hair.  It didn’t kill him, but the pain was so overwhelming he could barely stand up. Every single part of his body hurt.

“Just leave me, I can barely walk.” He said.

“No like I said, we don’t leave anyone behind.” The Doctor replied as he and Dana helped the former monarch up. The Doctor then fired back at the Dalek and blew the monster up in the sky.

“If only she’d listened and not tried to crawl away we could have got to her in time. We need to stick together if we have any hope of getting through this.” The Doctor said as he looked at the young rebel woman’s corpse whose face was twisted into the most heinous expression of agony.

“What’s that?”

“I don’t know maybe the people gathering outside to celebrate their brave new heroes.” Zoella said with disdain. The rebels took no notice of her however.

“We haven’t heard anything back from the commander in a while.” One of the rebels said. The whole room began to shake and the three rebels soon heard the croaking sound of a Dalek coming from above.

“HUMANOID LIFE FORMS DETECTED! ADVANCE! ADVANCE!”

“They’re here!” Zoella said in panic. “You have to release me now. We all have to get out of here”, but again the rebels took no notice of her.

“It’s okay. We can reason with them.” One of the rebels said to himself. “They want this war over as much as we do.”

“You idiots!” Zoella shouted, which finally prompted a response from one of the rebels who hit her in the face.

“Maybe when we give them one of the soldiers whose slaughtered their kind in cold blood they’ll be happy.”

Zoella just laughed as the Daleks drew closer. Up above there was the sound of fighting and rubble started to fall from the ceiling.

“I’m sure those poor misunderstood Daleks are just thanking you for toppling the evil king” Zoella said with disdain.

As the celing began to collapse, the lock holding Zoella’s chains broke too and she was able to escape. Whilst the rebels guarding here were distracted by the Daleks, Zoella wrapped her chain around one guards neck and snapped it in a matter of seconds. The other guard turned around aiming his gun, but Zoella quickly punched him in the face with her chains and didn’t stop hitting him on the floor until he was dead.

After the gruesome deed was done, Zoella looked up to see her son standing there in shock at what his mother had done.

“I didn’t ever want you to see this. I swore I’d do anything to keep you safe. Even if that meant missing you grow up, even if that meant becoming… this. I don’t care if you hate me. Just as long as you are alive at the end of this.”

To her surprise however Zoella’s little boy hugged her.

“Mother I could never hate you. I’ve missed you so much.”

“I know son. I promise that no matter what we’re going to get out of here.”

Zoella walked slowly ahead of the young boy. She had to hold her chains up by one arm. The weight on her broken arm was unbearable, but she didn’t even flinch once such was her determination.

As Zoella looked aroud the corner she saw one Dalek gliding towards her.

“HALT STAY WHERE YOU ARE!” It screamed. Zoella surprisingly however turned to face it with her non broken arm up.

“Well I’m here. I take it you don’t come in peace?” She said sarcastically. The Dalek raised its gun to her, but Zoella threw her chain around the Daleks gun stick and pulled. With all her strength she wrenched the Dalek gun stick out of its socket and grabbed it, shooting the monster dead.

“I can’t tell you how satisfying that was.” She said to her son. From behind the Dalek Zoella however could see more of the metal monsters emerging down the dark corridors. As she and her son tried to run back the way however, more Daleks came down that direction too. They were trapped with seemingly no hope of escape.

“She’s a tough one. If this were the king that coward would have cracked by now, but her? I’m impressed”

The rebels had been torturing Zoella for the last two hours. They had beaten her unconscious several times, burned her with lasers and stabbed hooks through her hands and feet.

After each session however Zoella who never screamed throughout it, would just spit back in her tormentors face.

“All men and women can be broken. You just have to find their weakness. Isn’t that right my dear.” The leader of the rebels said as he entered the room with a young, deathly pale, little boy, no older than 8 years old.

“I believe you know this young man” the leader said.

“You’ve reached a new low.” Zoella said as she spat out one of her last teeth. “Threatening children.”

“Why not? That king you so willingly served murdered thousands of innocent children.”

“I didn’t serve him you fool. I served us. I fought against those monsters out there that threatened our entire world. You were either too scared or stupid to realise the danger we are all in.”

The leader responded by hitting Zoella across the face.

“Believe me when I tell you that I’ll kill him. Your own son right in front of you if you don’t tell me where the king went.”

Zoella’s son, Misaca was the only family she had left. Her husband and daughter had both been tragically killed many years ago in a riot for resources. Her son had since fallen into the care of one of her friends, Estelica who had cared for him for the past two years, whilst Zoella had been fighting the Daleks.

“What did you do to Estelica.”

“Lets just say you’ll have to find a new babysitter”

“You sick, cowardly.”

The rebels leader held his gun to Misaca’s head. “Last chance.”

“Okay, okay. The two strangers the King fled with were aliens from another world. They have a ship that can take him out of here. It’s in the badlands, in the wreckage of the ship I crashed in.”

The leader was skeptical, but he didn’t think Zoella was lying. For the first time he could see how scared she was for her son.

Another one of the rebels came bursting into the room.

“Sir, Sir, in the lower levels of the cavern we have discovered a spaceship. Its huge.”

“Is it a war vessel?”

“No sir. According to one of the King’s special guard that we interrogated, it was an escape vessel. Whilst idiots like this woman here were hopelessly fighting against those monsters, the King and his elite were going to leave them all behind.”

“Does it work?” The leader asked which caused Zoella to burst out laughing.

“What are you laughing at? You’re the fool who was happy to sacrifice herself for a coward.”

“Just like your followers are?”

The leader of the rebels grabbed her son and threw him towards Zoella who instantly stood up in her chains.

“Keep them both here whilst I investigate the vessel. If she tries anything, shoot her son first.”

Zoella had never hated anyone as much as the rebels leader. She hated him even more than the Daleks, but she had to bide her time for now. The chains were unbreakable. None of it probably mattered anway she thought. The Daleks most likely kill all of them in a few hours anyway. She just hoped that they would kill the rebels first.

The Doctor, Dana and Asica headed towards the forcefield’s generator. Along the way below they saw nothing but constant fighting among the people. It was absolute chaos.

“There won’t be any of them left when the Daleks get here.” Dana said. “We have to do something. We have to tell them what’s really going on.”

“They won’t listen”. The Doctor replied. “No offence, but I don’t think having his majesty here on our side will exactly endear us to them. We have to stop that Dalek or they’ll all die.”

“I didn’t want it like this.” Asica said. “Believe me. Every second of every day and night I’m awake I think about what I’ve done to our planet.”

“Well I’m sure that’ll make them all forgive you. I’ve done horrible things, but I’m really sorry about it.” Dana said sarcastically in response.

“You have no idea what those creatures are capable of.”

“Yes I do.” The Doctor said.

The ship came to a giant facility which housed the generator. Outside there were hundreds of Heglozians fighting with one another. The guards of the facility and the terrorist group Heglozia first. The national guard were too preoccupied with putting down the riots in the cities caused by the Dalek releasing the prisoners, whilst the King’s forces had similarly been overtaken by the rebels and the escaped prisoners working together.

The guards still appeared to have the upper hand in the fight, due to their more advanced weaponry, but more and more people were joining the side of the rebels.

“We have to scatter them.” The Doctor said. “The guards can’t possibly hope to fight both that army and the Dalek. What kind of weapons does this ship have?” The Doctor asked.

“You’re not seriously thinking of killing the rebels.” Dana said in shock.

“Why not” Asica interrupted. “They’re about to doom this world.”

“Of course I’m not going to kill them.” The Doctor said whilst ignoring Asica. “I need to scatter them though.”

“You lack the stomach and courage to do what’s necessary” Asica said with disgust.

The Doctor gave Asica a glare. “You have no idea. Unlike you I don’t believe in senseless murder. Maybe if you’d thought the same then we wouldn’t be in this situation. We do things my way, understand.”

The Doctor fired several missiles at a small hill beside the facility, blowing it up and sending many of the rebels and eco terrorists fleeing. Several of them however still stood their ground and opened fire on the King’s vessel. Their rays however simply bounced off of the vessel and the Doctor fired several shots back. Again he aimed for their feet and simply knocked the rebels off balance.

Just as most of the rebels fled, which was met with a resounding cheer from the guards. Something struck the King’s vessel from behind.

“We’ve been hit. The back engines have been damaged. None of the rebels have firepower that strong.” Asica said.

“Which can mean only one thing.” The Doctor said as he checked the monitors to see the Dalek flying behind the vessel.

“It’s here, we just might have enough power to take it down.” The Doctor said as he tried to adjust the weapons.

The Dalek however opened fire again, sending the ship spinning through the air. Several of the guards turned their attention to the Dalek and they managed to distract it for a few minutes, before it started to exterminate them.

The Doctor managed to stablise the ship, but as he prepared to fire two missiles at the Dalek. The ship came under more fire from the rebels. As the back part of the ship had been blown open by the Dalek, this time their fire actually affected the vessel and began to cause it to fly out of control again. The ship hurled its way through the sky, but one final shot from the Dalek caused it to crash. Several of the guards ran towards the vessel whilst the combination of the Daleks and the rebels cleared out the remaining guards in front of the base.

The Doctor, Dana and the King had managed to survive the crash, though the king broke his arm in the process.

“My liege thank god you’ve survived. The cities have been overrun.”

“It’s the Dalek” The Doctor said.

“It released the prisoners . All of the terrorists and rebels and the people his majesty  locked up for stealing a loaf of bread are attacking you. They’re not your biggest problem however.”

Suddenly a barage of rays hit the wreckage of the ship. The rebels were zeroing in on the Doctor and the others.

“I’ll have to give myself up to them now” Asica said. “I’ve no choice. That Dalek can’t be allowed to get near the generator.”

“It won’t do any good” the Doctor said. “These people don’t just want you dead. They want to tear down the forcefield too.”

“We’ll hold them off” the leader of the last of the guards said.

“You’re outgunned now. They’d slaughter you” The Doctor told him.

“We promised to defend the forcefield with our lives. We’ll do just that as long as you stop that monster.”

“Yet more young men and women dying in my name” Asica said bitterly.

“Make our sacrifices worth it.”  The commander said before he and the handful of men and women left went out to face the rebels. They lasted just a few minutes before being overwhelmed, though it was enough for the Doctor, Asica and Dana to slip by. Along the way Asica made sure to grab a gun from one of the fallen soldiers.

When the Doctor, Dana and the former King entered the facility they could see its corridors were already littered with dead bodies.

“He’s been through here. We may already be too late” the Doctor said.

Three rebels emerged from down the corridors firing at the two time travellers and former despot who took shelter behind a nearby corridor. Asica fired back at the rebels and managed to hit one of them in the leg, a young woman. As another tried to help her up, Asica shot both of them in the chest and head. The surviving rebel allowed her anger to get the better of her, and started to fire at Asica blindly allowing him to pick her off easily. Asica managed to hit her in the kneecap, shattering it. As she lay on the floor, bleeding and helpless, Asica raised his gun to finish her off.

“No Asica there’s been enough senseless killing”. The Doctor said. Asica hesitated for a few minutes before relenting.

“You’re lucky that there are more important things to deal with now. Still know that whatever happens your actions may have doomed this world. Far more than mine.”

On the upper level the Dalek was fighting its way through the surviving guards alone. The monster in spite of its power had needed help to make its way through the Heglozian forces, but now only a small skeleton force of soldiers were left between it and the forcefield’s power source.

They fought valiantly but the Dalek cut them all down effortlessly in a matter of minutes before reaching the main generator.

The main generator was a gigantic cylinder in the centre of the building which reached its way to the very top of the building and above it.

A few blasts from the Daleks gun would be enough to tear it apart. As the Dalek prepared to fire Asica, accompanied by the Doctor and Dana shot at the monster from behind.

The Dalek turned to face them and they all retreated to behind a nearby wall.

“YOU ARE THE DOCTOR YOU ARE THE ENEMY OF THE DALEKS! YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED” The monster shrieked as it opened fire. In between its shots Asica would try and fire back at the Dalek, but each shot simply bounced off the monsters armour.

The Doctor quickly grabbed the gun from Asica.

“What are you doing.” Ascia asked.

“No offence I’m a better shot.” The Doctor said. “This gun won’t even dent the Daleks casing, but there are weak points.”

The Doctor quickly jumped out and fired at the Daleks eyestick destroying it.

“MY VISION IS IMPAIRED” the monster screeched as it fired blindly all around, but the Doctor next fired at the monsters gun stick. He managed to shoot right down the barrel of the gun which caused it to explode. The Doctor next fired at the monsters sucked arm, completely disabling it too. The Dalek was now completely defencless and blind.

“You’ve failed Dalek.” The Doctor said. “After all your dirty, cheap little tricks.” The Dalek wasn’t beaten yet however.

“SELF DESTRUCT INITIATE.” It said much to the Doctors horror. The Daleks self destruct unit would be more than enough to destroy the generator.

The Doctor opened the Daleks casing with his sonic screwdriver. He tried to reverse the process but it was no good. Dana and Asica got a glimpse of the hideous creature within for a split second, which was enough to make them instantly look away in disgust. Even the Doctor could barely stand to look at it.

Realising there was no way he could reset the monsters self destruct device, the Doctor tried to take control of its motor power, but the monster had anticipated this and blown its motor unit. The Doctor, Dana and Asica tried to move the monster by force, but it had used all of its excess energy to magnetise itself to the floor. They pulled and pulled with all their strength, but it was no use.

“We have to move now.” The Doctor said.

“NO WE CAN’T LEAVE THE GENERATOR” Asica screamed.

“There’s nothing else we can do.” The Doctor said as he was forced to overpower Asica and drag him away along with Dana.

Just before the Dalek exploded, it declared.

“THE DALEKS DO NOT FEAR DEATH! THE DALEKS ARE ABOVE SELFISH DESIRES! THE DALEKS ONLY CARE FOR THE FUTURE OF THEIR RACE! THAT IS WHY WE WILL TRIUMPH!”

The explosion completely destroyed the generator and within seconds the forcefield around the planet vanished. The Doctor, Dana and Asica had only just managed to escape, though the explosion still threw them.

“We’ve failed this planet Dana.” The Doctor said in despair. “The forcefield is gone. In minutes an entire battle fleet of Daleks will be here.”

The criminals and the rebels after overrunning the prison, advanced to a nearby village. The village had been where most of the guards and the executioners families had lived. Some of the most hated guards had been kept alive by the prisoners so they could watch their loved ones be torn to pieces.

The Dalek observed the slaughter for some time before it made its presence known. It was curious as to how and why these humanoids were slaughtering each other. Concepts such as revenge were alien to the Dalek. Even when dealing with old enemies such as the Doctor, the monster simply viewed him as a threat. All Daleks had been programmed with knowledge of humanoid life forms, many of whom from Time Lords, to human beings shared similar characteristics, but it didn’t understand them even now.

The Dalek hovered over the centre of the village. The sight of the monster sent various villagers and former prisoners fleeing in all directions, but the Dalek fired in front of all of them, stopping the Heglozians in their tracks.

“I AM NOT HERE TO HURT YOU” The monster screamed. “I WANT THIS WAR TO END.”

“Don’t listen to it!” One of the few remaining guards said. “It’s a monster. It’ll kill us all.”

“WE ARE NOT YOUR ENEMIES! MILLIONS OF OUR PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN THIS CONFLICT TOO! WE WANT IT ENDED!”

The Daleks words were met with a huge cheer from the crowd. It was obviously false, but it was what they wanted to hear so they believed it.

“YOUR RULER MUST BE OVERTHROWN HE REFUSES TO STOP THIS CONFLICT!”

“How can we overthrow him? He is protected by the national guard.” One of the escaped prisoners shouted back.

“THERE ARE OTHERS ON THIS WORLD WHO WANT TO OVERTHROW HIM! YOU MUST ALLY!”

Several of the prisoners were unhappy with this idea. Many of the rebel groups hated each other as much as they did the king, and there were scoffs and jeers from the crowd at the thought of working together.

“YOU MUST OVERCOME YOUR DIFFERENCES!” The Dalek shouted. “THE KING IS THE ENEMY OF US ALL! IF YOU WORK TOGETHER, WITH MY HELP WE CAN WIN!”

“He’s right”. One of the former prisoners said. The prisoner was one of the former leaders of Heglozia first.

“The king is the one who locked us all up. He is the one who starved us. Who killed our loved ones. Not the Daleks. He only cares about winning some pointless war. How are we to know that the stories he told about the Daleks are even real? They could just be propaganda pieces. I’m not saying this tin monster here can be trusted, but I know who our real enemy is. Sitting in that luxurious palace, whilst we scramble around for food in the lands he stripped clean. We have to stop him.”

The Dalek could see it was getting through to crowd who started to cheer at the former rebls words. Pitiful creatures. The Dalek thought to itself. Whilst it may not ever understand them, it knew how to manipulate their feeble minds it thought to itself.

“Just so you know my TARDIS isn’t just for you and the elite.” The Doctor said to Asica as they headed down the corridor.

“I understand. It will be my first priority as king to make sure you get the villagers to another, habitable world first. They’ve suffered enough.”

“I’ll believe that when I see it. Just remember I’m the only one who knows how to pilot it, so don’t think about any cheap tricks.”

The two reached a small craft that was designed to take the Doctor across the badlands to the TARDIS.

“It seems to good to be true to imagine that soon my people will not have to live in fear of those monsters.”

“Well I can’t ever promise that.” The Doctor said grimly.

“The Daleks are a danger to all life forms in the universe, but for the immediate future it can take you to another time, and another place.”

Zoella and Dana had been left in the throne room. Surrounded by two guards; Zoella just sat in the corner not saying anything.

Suddenly to Dana’s surprise, Zoella broke the awkward silence. “So how long have you been eh, travelling with that strange man.”

“A few years. I joined the Doctor to try and find my sister.”

“What happened to her?”

“Creatures from another world took her from me. It was a long shot we’d ever find her. The Doctor told me it was like finding a needle in a planet, but I had to take it. I don’t think I’ll ever find her now. I still hope. Every time we land on a new world, but well.”

“I understand. I’d do anything for my family too. That’s why I joined the army. I lost most of my family.”

“Was it the Daleks?”

“No. It was my own people. In desperation because of what that man out there had done.”

“I’m sorry Zoella. I’m amazed you could stand to be in the same room as him.”

“Well for so long I wanted to make him suffer, but then I realised who was really responsible. When the Daleks are defeated, then he can be made to answer for what’s he done, but now? They have to be stopped.”

Suddenly the room was rocked by the sound of a massive explosion outside.  Zoella looked out of a nearby window and saw hundreds of prisoners with the Dalek floating above.

The Dalek had since freed hundreds more prisoners from other prisons around the planet, who had in turn made contact with various rebel groups, though the most numerous were those belonging to a group known as the Hiaska’s. The guard were outnumbered by hundreds to one. The rebels would swarm each soldier, whilst the Dalek focused on taking down the flying machines.

“Idiots they’re working with the Daleks.” Zoella said. “We have to get out of here. There’s too many of them.”

“No we can’t let the rebels have access to the palace. There’s too much at stake.” The Guard said.

“Like what?”

“That is not your concern. You will stay here while we hold them off.”

Asica and the Doctor meanwhile headed back to the throne room. There was no way the Doctors ship could escape over the crowd and the Dalek outside. Asica however had a secret passage in the throne room, which would be the only way of escape.

The rebels broke down the front doors of the palace and began to attack the guards who fought valiantly. They managed to gun down dozens of rebels, but there were so many that they were completely overwhelmed.

“We need to get out of here now.” Asica said.

“The thought had occured to us” Dana said back sarcastically.

“There’s a secret passage at the back.” As the foursome ran towards the passage however, several rebels began to break their way into throne room. The last two guards held them off at the cost of their lives, whilst Asica, the Doctor, Zoella and Dana escaped. Asica didn’t even look back at the soldiers sacrifice.

The tunnel on the other side was long and dank. No one had been here for a very long time and there were small, rat like animals crawling along the floor.

Asica ran down the corridor, but Zoella’s injuries from the crash were beginning to catch up with her and she needed a few minutes to rest.

“We should just leave you here. You’re a liability!” Asica snapped back at her.

“If you leave her, I’ll never show you how my ship works.” The Doctor said in anger.

“Now I’m starting to see how so many people have died in your name.” The Doctor continued.

“It’s not about me. If what you say is true your ship is our last hope. These Hiaska’s might win this battle and if they do, they’ll tear down our forcefield.”

“Why would they do that? The Daleks will destroy them too? What do they want” Dana asked?

“They don’t care about the Daleks. They don’t know them like those of us on the front line. To them it’s just another war. What they really want? Is just to make him pay” Zoella said from the side.

“According to our old legends, Hiaska was the god of justice. The Hiaskans are made up of the relatives of the people he butchered, sent away to die, executed in cold blood. If we just hand him over to them, they might let us go.”

“You can’t be serious?” Dana said in shock.

“Of course I am. It’s our best chance for us to get free and get to your ship. If the king means what he says, he’ll lay down his life now for his people.”

Zoella’s words shook Asica. He’d always claimed he’d be happy to lay down his life for his people, but now his bluff was being called.

“They’ll never let any of you go.” Asica said.

“It’s you they hate. I’m just a soldier, and these two, well who knows what they are?”

“Do you think they’ll believe that? They’ll tear you apart just as soon as they would me.”

“Lets put it to the test shall we.”

“Enough” the Doctor shouted over them.

“No one is getting left behind. If we are going to not only get out of here, but stop the Daleks we have to stay together. I don’t care what problems you have with each other. Right now we are all in the same, hopeless situation.” The Doctor said firmly.

“All right” Zoella responded. “If they catch up to us though I’m throwing our beloved king to them.”

“That’s the spirit” the Doctor said mockingly.

As the four somewhat reluctant companions treked down the dark, musty corridor, they were tormented by the sounds of both the soldiers and the rebels killing one another above.

“Even in this time we can’t work together” Asica said bitterly.

“Conflict is the price we sometimes have to pay for individuality.” The Doctor said. “The Daleks above are not squabbling, but none of them are able to choose their own lives. To this day they all follow one man’s twisted beliefs.”

Just a few feet ahead there was a massive explosion. The Doctor instinctively tried to push Dana back. Even though she was more than capable of taking care of herself, the Doctor couldn’t help but be overly protective of her. It was the same with all of his companions. The explosion however knocked all 4 of them off their feet.

Through the smoke two armed men and women emerged, dressed in tattered, bloody clothes.

“Don’t bother calling for help.” The leader of the group sneered at Asica.

“Your palace is ours.”

“I don’t understand? How could you do it?” The king said in shock.

“It doesn’t matter. You’re finally going to get what you deserve. Look at you. Trying to run like a coward while those men up there die for you. That was always your way of fighting your enemies.”

“He’s not your enemy.” The Doctor protested. “The Daleks are. The future of your race is at stake if you.” The rebel punched the Doctor before he could finish.

“It wasn’t the Daleks that killed my son. ” He spat back at the Doctor. “I can’t believe that any of you are with him. You’re all traitors! Still there’s been enough killing. Stand aside and we’ll let you go.”

The Doctor looked back at Asica who tried to keep his cool, but was clearly terrified.

“Alright” the Doctor said calmly as he shrugged his shoulders.

“Doctor you can’t.” Dana said in shock.

“It’s not our concern Dana, we just have to” suddenly mid sentence the Doctor knocked the leader out with a bit of Venusian Karate, before kicking the gun out of the other male rebels hand. He then flipped the male rebel over his shoulder into the two female rebels, disarming them as well.

Dana and Zoella jumped the female rebels, whilst the Doctor fought with the male rebel. The Doctor blocked one punch before delivering two strikes to the rebel, one to his stomach and another to his face sending him back into a wall. Dana meanwhile managed to pin her rebel to the ground. Her rebel was just a teenage girl, no older than 18 and Dana was mindful not to hurt her. Zoella meanwhile still struggled with hers due to her injuries.

Whilst they were fighting, Asica grabbed the first rebel the Doctor had knocked out’s gun and shot the rebel fighting with Zoella. The others all froze, and Asica then shot the male rebel, before shooting the rebel the Doctor had knocked out. He then turned the gun to the rebel Dana was restraining.

“No don’t” Dana said as she let the girl go who tried to run, but Asica shot the girl in the back.

“You murderer” Dana screamed in rage and disgust.

“I had no choice. They’re a danger not only to me but to this entire planet.”

“There will be no one left on this planet you’re trying to save when you’re done with them!” Dana snapped.

“We need to get out of here before more of the rebels come” the Doctor shouted as he ran ahead. The Doctor was disgusted with Asica’s ruthless actions too, but he knew that it would do no good to bicker about it now. Asica was the first to follow the Doctor. Neither Dana nor Zoella wanted to be in front of the king.

The foursome ran a couple more feet until they eventually reached a massive cavern, with a small fighter jet in the centre.

“My escape jet. It won’t get us off this planet. That’s your job.” Asica said to the Doctor as he prepared to board the jet. Suddenly another explosion blew open the wall on the right hand side of the cavern. 10 or so rebels emerged from the smoke firing their weapons at the foursome.

“No, I want the king alive” the leader shouted. “A simple blast is too good for him. Kill the others.”

The Doctor, Dana, the King and Zoella hid behind the jet with the King firing blindly at the rebels.

Zoella grabbed the gun out of the King’s hands and fired at the rocks above the rebels sending them scattering.

Zoella then ran out to face the rebels and shot two more of them.

“Go now.” She shouted.

“We can’t just leave you” the Doctor said whilst Asica had already jumped into the jet.

“I’m wounded. I’ll only slowly you down. If you do have a way of getting some of us out of here. Take it now.” Zoella ran into the rebels and realizing there was nothing they could do, the Doctor and Dana jumped into the jet which quickly took off. The rebels weaponry had no effect on the jet which was made of the strongest metal on the planet. Its fire power was also vastly superior to that of most conventional crafts which it demonstrated when after escaping outside, it easily destroyed three fighter jets, hijacked by the rebels.

Back in the cavern the rebels easily overpowered the wounded Zoella.

“Where was the king fleeing.” The leader barked at the wounded soldier.

“You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

The rebel leader placed his foot on Zoella’s broken arm.

“You think you’re a hero fighting against the Daleks? You’re actually working for our real enemy. Now tell me where he’s gone or else.” He said as he pushed his foot down harder.

“I hate the King too, but he’s irrelevant you moron. Right now that man and that woman you almost killed might hold the key to the survival of our race.” Zoella said.

The leader responded by punching her in the face.

“If you’re not going to tell us where he is, I guess we’ll just have to take our frustrations at the King out on you!” The leader said with a sadistic glee.

The Doctor, Dana and the King flew out across the badladnds towards the wreckage. Along the way they could see scores of people fighting and killing one another. Almost every buidling was on fire, whilst masses of bodies lay in the streets.

A message suddenly came through on the king’s transmitor.

“Please help us, this is the national guard, we’ve been overwhelmed, the prisoners have escaped from Kisakr. We’re outnumbered.”

“The Dalek. It did this” the Doctor said.

“It wants us to kill ourselves so they won’t have too?” The King asked?

“No” the Doctor responded. “They always like to launch the final attack themselves. They have warships that can shatter planets, yet they still will always launch an army to wipe out the population. It’s what they live for. This is just a distraction so the Dalek can tamper with your forcefield to let the army through. We have to get to it now.”

“Are you kidding? We have to get to your ship and get out of here.” The King said.

“Look around your heiness” The Doctor replied. “You think you’re going to convince the people down there to stop fighting and walk into a little blue box? The Dalek is already on its way to your forcefield. We have to get there now.”

The King still refused. “Exactly if what you say is true then its already there in which case it’s too late.”

“Well how about that. It turns out you were just a coward after all.” Dana interrupted.

“How dare you, I’ll”

“You’ll do what? There’s no one around to throw me in prison anymore your majesty. You’re on your own now, and you have two choices. One try and flee and even if you make it, have the death of a world on your conscience? Or prove that you were doing it for the greater good and help us buy your people more time to escape? From what I gather you’ve already got enough on your conscience.”

The King hesitated for a few moments before turning the ship in the opposite direction.

“I hope you’re right aliens.”

“I’m afraid I am” The Doctor said. “We have to act fast or else your world dies tonight.”

Doctor Who: The Fire of the Daleks: Part 2

Image result for Dylan MoranImage result for remembrance of the daleks

 

“You mean to say that none of them survived? It can’t be”

“I’m afraid so Asica my liege. The entire world of Meliscor is completely gone. We are the only survivors of the galaxy now.”

The king felt like giving up. All of the sacrifices and atrocities that had been carried out in his name, all those years of suffering had seemingly been for nothing.

“We can’t possibly hope to fight the Daleks off on our own.” The King said.

“No sir we can’t. This means we shall have to resort to the final option.”

“I prayed it wouldn’t come to this, but our race must survive and surrender isn’t an option.” The King said with regret.

Asica had been ruling their world throughout most of the war. His father Leri, though an effective and just ruler had struggled during the early years of the war with the Daleks. Leri chose Asica out of all his children replace him during the war because he believed Asica was the most heartless, and therefore the best to deal with the horrors ahead.

Its true that Asica was always the hardest out of all of his siblings, but even he had not been prepared for the Daleks. Asica had been forced to send billions of young men and women away to their deaths, ravage his planets resources, starve his people and force them to work themselves to death. As a result the king was the most hated man on the entire planet, but there was really nothing anyone could have done differently. It had only been through Asica’s ruthless actions that his world had held out for so long, but now it appeared that it was all for nothing. Or maybe not.

The only hope for the Heglozians was to try and get a select group of their people away from the galaxy in a spaceship that had been constructed over the course of the last few years. This plan, called the final option had been prepared during the last few years when most of the planets fell to the Daleks.

In spite of the devastating losses, the King still hoped he’d never have to implement the plan. Not only did he not want to abandon his people, the plan also had a very slim chance at succeeding anyway. Asica would have to essentially use most of his soldiers to distract the monsters, whilst he and the select few fled. The Daleks would most likely pick up a ship fleeing the solar system anyway, but if there were enough vessels distracting the Dalek war fleet.. it might just slip by. There is no way that all of the men would abandon their post around the planet however. Furthermore if the public found out about the ship, they would do all they could to stop it from leaving.

There were regular attacks on Asica’s central command from various different groups of rebels, all with their own reasons for hating Asica.

Those in the poorer areas who were forced to work night and day, whose husbands, wives, daughters and children were dragged away to fight viewed Asica as a glory hound who cared about defeating the Daleks rather than his own people. They wished he would surrender to end the conflict. (Having no idea that surrender was not an option.) Others meanwhile viewed Asica as an incompetent leader who wasn’t doing enough to stop the Daleks. Others believed that he needed to be stopped due to the damage he had inflicted on the environment, which they believed was worse than anything the Daleks could ever do.

Whatever the case most people on the planet wanted him dead. It was hard for Asica to even get loyal body guards. The only way he could ensure their loyalty was to promise them that their families would not be called on to fight the Daleks, and that they would be given a place on the escape ship. This meant that many of the elite who had been originally chosen however would have to be replaced and executed to prevent knowledge of the plan from being leaked.

Whilst the people were divided into different groups, desperate to try and take control from Asica, the knowledge of the ship would most likely unite them all against him.

Even if the ship did manage to escape its own people and the Daleks, all of the planets in the entire galaxy next door were seemingly inhospitable. There is no way they would have enough supplies for most of the crew to survive the journey, let alone trying to terrorform a planet.

Finally the vessel which would have to travel faster and further than any of their other ships, had not even been tested yet. There was no way to test it. For all Asica knew, the ship would explode as soon as they tried to take off.

Asica contemplated simply ending his own life now. Better that he thought than to order millions of young men and women to sacrifice themselves to the Daleks whilst he and the elite fled like cowards.

“No” the king thought to himself. “I have a duty to our people. Some of us must survive. We can’t let hundreds of thousands of years of history and struggles end like this.”

Just as Asica was about give the order to implement the final plan however, another guard came bursting into the room with a look of horror on his face.

“My liege, we’ve just had report that one of our vessels escaped the massacre of Meliscor. It crashed right in the centre of the badlands.”.

“Where there any survivors.”

“We don’t know yet.”

“Well I’m afraid we have more important matters to discuss if you’ll.”

“I’m afraid sir there was…. There was a Dalek on board.”

Asica’s blood ran cold.

“How, how could it get by.”

“We don’t know yet, but there is a possibility that it may have survived and be loose on the planet right now..”

“Send a team to the badlands to be sure. The possibility of a Dalek on this world and the fact that we are the last survivors means the final option must be implemented.”

“Doctor, Doctor wake up”. Dana roused the Doctor after the debris had fallen on him when the ship was struck by the missiles. Together they then shifted the boulder off of Zoella.

“Quick we have to get to the safe room.” Zoella shouted. The Doctor could not disable the trap the Dalek had placed on the lock of the TARDIS in time and more rubble had fallen in front of the TARDIS anyway.

Their chances of survival in the safe room were still very slim, but it was their only chance. The corpses of Zoella’s team still littered the room. Dana could barely look at them, but Zoella showed no emotion. Zoella had seen entire worlds burn by this point. The Doctor similarly had seen so many people, even entire races fall victim to the Daleks that he was sadly used to it by now.

It soon became apparent to the Dalek that the ship could not be redirected, and so the monster quickly followed the trio to the safe room. Zoella was able to seal the hatch, but the Dalek was able to override her code and entered the room.

“YOU ARE TRAPPED” the Dalek shouted as it fired at the three cornered humanoids. The downward trajectory of the ship however quickly sent the Dalek flying back to the other end of the room

The safe room survived the crash, but it was blown to the other side of the wreckage. The Doctor, Dana and Zoella had managed to hold on, but when it finally hit the ground all 3 were knocked out cold.

Zoella’s right arm was broken in the impact, whilst the Doctor suffered two broken ribs.

Dana was the luckiest in the crash as she only had a few broken fingers. The Dalek had been thrown out of the room into the rest of the ship meanwhile.

“Dana.” the Doctor who was the first to wake said as he roused her and clutched his ribs. “I take it we’ve landed. Not my smoothest landing, but not my worst either.”

Zoella started to wake up. Unlike the Doctor she didn’t even take notice of the pain.

“Where is the Dalek.” She shouted

“First let me see if you’re all right.” Dana asked as she tended to Zoella.

“We need to find it. We can’t let it loose.”

Suddenly the room began to shake again.

“Its the military. They’re destroying what’s left of the ship. We have to get out of here!” Zoella said.

The Doctor climbed out first. The entire room had been knocked on its head with the door facing up the way. In the sky above the Doctor could see the Dalek flying through the air and fighting with several smaller fighter ships. None of them were able to land a hit on the Dalek however it was so fast. The Dalek meanwhile was able to bring down each ship with just one blast each.

“It won’t take it long to finish them.” The Doctor said. Dana followed him, but Zoella couldn’t because of her arm. She tried to fight through the pain, but it was too much even for her. The Doctor reached down and with Dana’s help pulled Zoella up.

The Doctor, Zoella and Dana jumped off of the wreckage while the Dalek was distracted with the last of the fighter jets. Below however the trio were confronted by several soldiers pointing guns at them. There must have been over 50 there in total.

The soldiers attention was quickly diverted to the Dalek as it flew overhead. The soldiers much like Zoella’s crew were frozen with terror when they first saw the monster. They had heard so much about the Daleks, but up until now had been lucky enough not to meet one.

“EXTERMINATE” The Dalek screamed as it fired on several of the soldiers. The rest started to scatter whilst firing back at the Dalek. The Dalek didn’t even bother to dodge their attacks, as the rays simply bounced off of its casing.

“AIM FOR THE EYEPIECE” The Doctor shouted in desperation. None of the soldiers even acknowledged him however. They had never felt so helpless and just fired blindly in fear and desperation.

As the Doctor continued to try and warn them, one of the soldiers hit the the Doctor over the head with the butt of his gun. The Doctor was knocked out cold and the soldier responsible quickly pointed his gun at Dana and Zoella before they could come to the Time Lord’s aid.

“Come with me now. The King will want to speak with you himself. NOW!” He said as he hoisted the Doctor over his shoulder. The soldier took Dana and Zoella away on a small vessel whilst the rest of his platoon desperately tried in vain to bring down the Dalek.

The Dalek seemed to take its time in killing the soldiers. It could have wiped them all out in under a minute, but it prolonged their deaths for as long as it could. It let the final soldiers ammo run out on its casing, before cornering him against a rock. The Dalek simply stared the petrified soldier down for a few minutes, bringing him to the very limit of his terror before exterminating him in cold blood.

All a Dalek existed for was to destroy all apparent “lesser life forms.” Whenever they could they would savor a kill.

As the Dalek headed across the wasteland it tried to contact the mothership through its own in built communicator.

“COME IN MOTHER SHIP, COME IN.”

A voice came in, though the line was very weak and crackling.

“GIVE YOUR REPORT.”

“I HAVE MADE IT TO THE HEGLOZIAN SURFACE! THE SHIELD WILL BE ELIMINATED IN DUE TIME!”

“EXCELLENT! ONCE THE INVASION HAS ELIMINATED MOST OF THE HEGLOZIAN FORCES THE PLANETS SURFACE WILL BE CLEANSED THROUGH FIRE! HEGLOZIA SHALL BE A NEW.”

The line started to break up.

“A BLUE BOX HAS BEEN SIGHTED ON THE PLANET! ALERT ALL DALEK UNITS!” The drone said, only to be met with more static before the line cut off. It was hard for the signal to be broadcast through the forcefield, but the Dalek knew its task and set about accomplishing it.

The Doctor awoke in the King’s room. Asica had asked they be brought to him as he always liked to shame traitors himself. In his own mind it was his way of getting back at his own people who had decried him as a monster for so long.  The Doctor awoke to both Zoella and Asica screaming at each other.

“You should have stopped him. You’ve doomed our entire planet.” Asica screamed at Zoella.

“Well dooming our planet is nothing you haven’t done.” Zoella said back “You’re a weak man. You always were. A semi competent leader could have helped to save at least one of the planets in this galaxy.”

The Doctor interrupted. “Excuse me, hate to be a bother but could you direct me to a large blue box?”

“Doctor.” Dana said. “The Dalek it, it killed all of the soldiers. It’s loose.”

“Yes thanks to you three.” Asica snapped.

“Excuse me, we just arrived in this galaxy. We didn’t know anything about your war until 30 minutes ago! Now please can you tell me did your men find a blue box from the rubble”.

“Those men rescued you from the monster you brought here, and all you care about is some trinket” Asica shouted.

“You’re the leader here am I right? In that case those men died in your name, not mine. Also that ‘trinket’ is actually a complex, space and time machine that can get you and the rest of your people out of here. Its called the TARDIS and from the looks of things its your people’s last hope.” The Doctor said boastfully.

Asica was silent for a few minutes.” I know you are not one of us.” He said. When the Doctor and Dana were brought in, their bodies were scanned which instantly revealed that they were not only not of this world, but of this galaxy. “Did the Daleks create you?”

“Oh not this again look I already went through this with her. I’m a time traveller.” The Doctor said impatiently

“Did you cross entire galaxies just to taunt a dying race.”

“I crossed billions of galaxies to get here, but I am not lying when I say I can help you. Please we need to stop that Dalek first, and then get your people out of here while the forcefield still holds.

Asica wasn’t sure what to think. As far as he knew time travel was an impossibility, yet if the alien was telling the truth then he couldn’t ignore a chance to help his people.”

“What do we have to lose” The king said in a somewhat pessimistic tone. “Your ship can it take off right away?”

“Yes. It can go anywhere, to another world, another time. We can make as many stops as we need.

” You will accompany a team to the wreckage to fetch this blue box if what you say is true. We will deal with the Dalek itself.” The King said.

“Well that’s the thing I have some experience in dealing with these monsters if you’ll only listen to me.” The Doctor said.

“We’ll see if you’re telling the truth about this vessel first. The Daleks are our priority. We’ve been fighting them for longer. I’m not going to listen to a total stranger about the biggest crisis we’ve ever faced.”

“You two” he said to two soldiers. “Take him back to the wreckage. Zoella and the other alien will stay here.”

“No” the Doctor said. “They both come with me.”

“You’re wasting time” Asica said. “I won’t hurt them I promise, but you wouldn’t expect me to give up my only leverage?”

“Just go” Dana said. “He’s right all the time we spend here arguing, the more the Dalek gets a lead on us.”

“If only that fool would listen. With his resources I might be able to whip up a weapon against that monster.” The Doctor thought to himself as he was carried away.

“It’s over.”

“Finally! Even I couldn’t take it another second. No one deserved to die like that. Not even a man like him.”

The man is question was Tyresia, leader of the terrorist origanisation Heglozia First. Heglozia First were devoted to ending the war with the Daleks in order to preserve the planet. They foolishly believed that their leaders were just as responsible for the conflict as the Daleks, and hoped to persuade them (through violent means.) To settle their differences with the Daleks.

Their most heinous crime had been the sabotage of a war vessel, the Osteria, which caused it to explode before taking off. Over 2000 young men and women lost their lives in the explosion. There were no survivors. Tyresia had himself orchestrated the sabotage.

Nevertheless Tyresia’s own executioners could not help but pity him in his final moments. The lack of resources meant that they were not allowed to use guns and waste ammunition to execute the prisoners. Instead a lethal form of chemical called Ixeri was used, which would kill its victims slowly and painfully over the course of several hours. It wasn’t just a lack of resources as to why this chemical was used however. The king wanted it to be used as a form of terror. Any disloyalty to the king was met with execution by Ixeri.

The executioners had been forced to slaughter many innocent men and women. When Tyresia had been brought in, for once they were happy at the prospect of executing someone who deserved it. Still now that the grissly deed (that had taken over two hours) was done, the two executioners had instead come to the conclusion that no one deserved to die from Ixeri.

“The king should be made to see just how that poison eats people from the inside.” One of the executioners said as he carried Tyresia’s putrid, stinking corpse from the table.

“I sometimes think it would be better if that entire forcefield just collapsed on us.” The other said as he mopped up the mess created during Tyresia’s death throes.

Suddenly the two men were alerted by screams. The executioner carrying Tyresia’s corpse dropped it and ran to the window. Outside to his horror he could see the guards one by one falling to a Dalek.

“My god one of the Daleks is here.”

“What? That’s not possible? What would it want here anyway? To kill all our criminals?”

“”I don’t know but we have to get out of here now!”

The two men were not soldiers. The only reason they were in this position was to avoid having to fight in the war. Every day they regretted it and contemplated going off to fight against the Daleks and die an honourable, yet completely pointless death. Ultimately however their fear of the Daleks always won out and they instead decided to sacrifice more innocent lives in the hopes that they could wait out the war. (Regardless of how hopeless that seemed.)

The two men ran down the long corridors filled with prisoners, most of whom were there for minor crimes, such as stealing resources to feed their families.

Most of the prisoners were asleep, but a few were woken up by the commotion. One of the prisoners, a young man reached out and grabbed one of the executioners as he ran past. He managed to pull the executioner right up to the bars and hold him in place by placing his arm around his neck.

“Please help me” the executioner shouted to his friend, who without a seconds hesitation ran away.

“You coward. We were in this together.” He shouted after his former comrade.

“Tell me, what’s going on? Why are you two leaving? Where are all the guards? Answer me!” The prisoner shouted.

“There’s a Dalek outside. I don’t know what it wants, but it’s coming in here.”

“A Dalek that’s not possible, unless our forcefield’s down. If it is, why bother running?”

“What else can we do?”

Outside the Dalek had slaughtered almost all of the guards. Only 4 out of 50 in total remained. As the last 4 survivors ran for cover the Dalek hovered about twenty feet in the air and blasted a hole in the prison wall before entering. The Dalek made its way into the room the main generator was kept in. The generator controlled all of the doors in the facility. It was also capable of electrifying them if the prisoners got too close.

The Dalek killed two of the three soldiers guarding the generator, (with the other fleeing in panic) before placing its sucker arm on the generator. The 4 soldiers outside regrouped and continued to fire desperately at the creature to no avail. The soldier who fled returned and attempted to grab the metal monster from behind and pull it off the generator, but he wasn’t able to move it a fraction of an inch!

The Dalek was able by linking its own software with the generator to override the electronic locks on every door in the prison and open them. Once it was finished the Dalek spun round, knocking the soldier off its back.  The Dalek then exterminated the last of the guards below, before turning to face the guard it had knocked down, who it cornered against a wall.

“HUMANOIDS KILL HUMANOIDS. THE DALEKS ARE UNITED THAT IS WE ARE SUPERIOR WHY WE ALWAYS TRIUMPH!” The monster said before exterminating the guard and leaving the area.

The criminals were easily able to overrun the few remaining guards in the prison who they literally tore apart with their bare hands. The executioner who had been abandoned’s neck was broken by the criminal who had restrained him. The other executioner meanwhile was beaten to death by a crowd, made up of people whose loved ones he had either personally killed, or people he was due to execute. Though the executioner fought back at first, he soon realised it was pointless and gave in to the prisoners. In his final few moments he was relieved more than anything else to finally be free of the nightmare his existence had become.

“We can’t retreat” Zoella shouted.

“We have to. They’ve got us completely out gunned. If we don’t we’ll burn with the others” her Captain, Shreskia said before sending the ship on a course for home.

Zoella attempted to stop her captain physically, but she was easily overpowered thanks to his greater experience.

Zoella wasn’t the only member of the crew angry with the Captain. 5 more soon arrived on the flight deck, furious that their Captain had in their minds, brought shame to their crew.

The largest of the crew had to be restrained by two others from attacking his Captain. “How could you! We vowed that we would give our lives for the people of Meliscor! They had sacrificed so much for us!”

“I had no choice. Meliscor was done for. Those monsters, they had destroyed all of their defences and begun blitzing Meliscor’s continents. The last message I received from their main command centre was nothing but screams. What could we out here in space have done?”

“A lot more than just running away.” Zoella said with disgust.

“We have to get back to our world Zoella. We are now the last planet standing in this entire galaxy. Our people are going to need as many soldiers as they can.”

“They won’t want our help.” She sneered.

“Well if it makes you feel any better our world probably won’t survive long enough to reject us anyway.” The Captain snapped back.

“I can’t believe it.” He continued. “82 inhabited planets in this galaxy, and one by one they’ve all fallen. So many great civilisations, and not one survivor from any of them. If we are to join our comrades. I want to at least see my family one more time, would you begrudge me that.”

“You don’t think I miss my boy every second of every day?” Zoella said? “We all have a duty to our people that.”

Suddenly a bright light began to shine at the other end of the room. All of the soldiers pointed their guns at it, whilst the Captain checked the readings.

“No, it can’t be” he said with horror. “One of them is…. how?” He instantly tried to set a new course for the ship, only for a green ray to fire from the light at the controls, destroying them.

Just then the light began to fade and in its place emerged the image of the monster that had spelled the doom for the crews entire galaxy. A Dalek!

They all froze in fear for a moment. They had never had an encounter with a Dalek up this close. No one who did had ever lived to tell about it. For a second they all felt like running away, but the largest at the centre of the group started firing at the Dalek, only for the rays in his gun to bounce off of the monster’s armoured casing.

“EXTERMINATE” it shrieked in its hideous, rasping, metallic voice, before opening fire on all of the crew, except for Zoella and the Captain who stood at the other end.

Just one shot was all it needed. It filled the entire area with a green light. The entire crew screamed in absolute agony. The rays from a Dalek gun stimulated every single pain receptor in its victims body to the absolute maximum they could be. Though the crews death only lasted a few seconds, the pain was so intense it felt like several hours.

The Captain pushed Zoella behind him.

“Zoella go, you have to warn the others, we can’t let even one of these monsters get back home. It’s my fault. Go!”

Zoella protested, not wanting to leave her captain and so he shoved her out the door and then locked it, whilst firing at the Dalek.

“YOU CANNOT WIN. YOUR WORLD WILL FALL TO THE DALEKS. WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS” The Dalek shouted as it shot the Captain.

The Captain felt tremendous pain run through his entire body, pain like he’d never felt before. After the sensation was over however, to his horror, the Captain was still alive.

He couldn’t move a muscle in his body. He couldn’t even scream! The Dalek approached the immobilised and petrified Captain.

“YOU WILL HELP US CONQUER YOUR OWN WORLD!”

“Ah good we’ve finally landed.”  The Doctor said as put his book down and headed for the console room.

The Doctor had spent most of the journey in his vast library, catching up with his collection. Dana had urged him too, feeling that it was a shame all of those great books were going to waste with no one reading them. The Doctor had actually read them before, but that was many faces and several thousand years ago. Dana was amazed she had actually convinced him to do anything. He was so stubborn and grumpy when it came to taking any advice.

“So where’s it taken us this time Doctor.” Dana said as she arrived in the console room from the lounge.

“According to these readings we’ve arrived at the Myosirka Galaxy. That’s all it’ll tell me for the moment. Mysorika? That name is familiar to me? I can’t remember why.”

“Well I’m sure it will come back to you.”

“I suppose. You know Dana when’ you’ve been around the universe as much as I have the galaxies really do all start to blend together.”

The Doctor and Dana exited the TARDIS and discovered that they had landed on a spaceship. There didn’t appear to be anyone around however. The ship was dull, grey and depressing.

“God how hard is it for people to make a cosy spaceship” the Doctor moaned.

“Well maybe boring and grey is this species idea of cosy.” Dana said as she looked down the nearest corridor.

The duo spend another 20 or so minutes exploring the nearby corridors, before a scream stopped them in their tracks. It was absolutely blood curdling, but neither the Doctor nor Dana could see any signs of anyone or anything nearby.

“What is it a ghost?” Dana said jokingly, whilst still somewhat nervous and scared.

“No it’s a communicator of some sort I’d wager. Whoever, whatever, is responsible for that horror, wants the rest of the crew to know what’s in store for them.”

The screams chilled both the Doctor and Dana to the bone, but as always the more scared they were, they more curious they became.

The two time travellers explored the nearest corridor with the screaming ringing in their ears. They’d never heard anything quite like it. There wasn’t even a seconds relief for the victim.

“Poor soul” Dana said. “So much for landing somewhere nice and quiet.”

At the end of the corridor they discovered a large weapons room, filled with several rows of strange rifles.

“Well now at least part of this is starting to make sense, the Doctor said. We’re on some kind of military vessel. I’m afraid I don’t recognise the weaponry but”

Just then a young man appeared from behind one of the rows of rifles and ambushed the Doctor, pointing his gun into the Time Lords spine.

“Thanks for the heads up Dana” the Doctor said sarcastically.

“Sorry I was little distracted by all the screaming.”

“Who are you? How’d you get on board” the figure said frantically.

“Well now look I can’t tell you if you shoot me can I, why don’t you just put the gun down and”

The Doctor quickly spun run and knocked the gun out of the soldiers hand, before kicking the gun back to Dana. He then floored the soldier with a quick hit to the stomach and another to the jaw.

“There now perhaps we can have a more civil conversation about just what the hell is going on here” the Doctor said somewhat pompously. Five more figures however emerged from behind the weapons cabinets.

“Ah okay maybe not” the Doctor said as Dana dropped her gun to the floor.

The young soldier the Doctor had hit jumped up and punched the Time Lord in the face in anger. When he tried to hit him again Dana got the soldier in an arm lock.

“We don’t have time for this, we need to get these people, whoever they are to the safe room now!” A young woman who appeared to be the leader of the group said.

The soldiers took the Doctor and Dana through a door at the other end of the weapons room, which led to another long corridor. They then entered a lift that took them down two floors. They were then led down two more corridors. In the middle of the second corridor, the young woman activated a device which caused a hatch to suddenly appear in the floor. The hatch led to a safe room. Along the way, the screaming stopped. It didn’t come to a sudden stop. It more slowly died down.

There was only one soldier in the safe room waiting for them, a young man trying frantically to work several controls.

“They don’t look like enemy agents.” He said whilst peering over his shoulder.

“I can assure you we’re not anybody’s agent” the Doctor said.

“Why don’t you tell me what’s going on here.” The Time Lord continued.

The leader pointed her gun at the Doctor. “We’ll ask the questions. We detected the presence of something on one of the upper levels. Why are you siding with them?”

“With who?” the Doctor said in frustration.

“Don’t lie to me. Even if you weren’t one of their agents, no one in this Galaxy hasn’t heard of the Daleks.”

Both the Doctor and Dana’s faces filled with horror at the mention of that name.

“There are Daleks on board. Please you have to let me help you. I am a traveller. My vessel’s on the upper level. I swear we came here by accident, but if the Daleks are involved.”

“Involved?” The woman laughed. “They’ve destroyed every planet in this entire galaxy! All except ours. For the past 30 years I’ve had to watch trillions of young soldiers sacrifice themselves for nothing against those monsters. I’ve seen entire cities, continents and planets burn.”

“I know” the Doctor said. “I’ve seen the Daleks destroy millions of worlds throughout all of history. Please just let me and Dana help.”

The figure at the controls suddenly interrupted. “I’ve managed to hack into it Zoella” he said to the leader of the group.

Zoella paused for a minute.

“Do it” she said.

“Do what?” Dana asked.

“There is a self destruct device on board this ship. Only the Captain knows the code. Fortunately our friend here, Resicha was able to hack the mainframe.”

“Fortunately? I assume you have a way off this ship.” Dana said in disbelief.

“No we don’t. Our lives don’t matter at all. The Daleks let this ship escape. They were manipulating us. There’s an impenetrable forcefield around our planet. Its the main reason our world is the last one standing. Though maintaining it has not been without cost.” She said with regret.

“The Daleks haven’t be able to penetrate it, yet.” Zoella continued. “So they let one of our ship go, and then teleported one of their own into our vessel. We didn’t know they had teleportation technology. They must have developed it recently. They want to get one of their own into our forcefield.”

“Why don’t they just teleport in?” Dana asked.

“The forcefield probably prevents that too.” The Doctor said. “Its very rare to find teleportation technology that can penetrate forcefields, and if my estimates are correct, this is an early point in the Daleks history.”

“Once that Dalek is on our world it’s all over. We can’t take control of the ship, it’s locked it on a course for home and it has our Captain.”

“Those screams. That’s who they were from?” The Doctor asked.

“Yes. For the past two days since it first came here, the Dalek has been torturing him and forcing us to listen. We get a relief from it every now and again only because he faints. We tried to rescue him, but every time we’ve sent more up there, it kills them. There were 60 of us. Now there’s only 12. This place is sealed from the rest of the ship. Even then I think the Dalek more hasn’t found us because it doesn’t care. It seems to only care about him. It’s time to end his pain as well as ours.”

“No you can’t give up.” The Doctor protested.

“We’re giving our people back home maybe a few more months before the Daleks find a way to break through the forcefield anyway. We also won’t have to watch our world burn like the others in this galaxy. I’d say its our best option” Zoella said.

The Doctor and Dana attempted to plead with their captors further, but they didn’t listen. The countdown started. The Doctor punched one of the soldiers next to him and flipped the other over his shoulder into two more, but when he tried to make a move for the control panel he was overpowered by three more. Before Dana was able to make a move, the soldiers pointed their guns into her stomach and back.

The countdown went to zero and nothing happened.

“No, no, no! That Dalek, it must have overrun the security system.” Zoella said in despair.

“Well how’s that for one of life’s little ironies. I owe my life to a Dalek.” the Doctor said in a somewhat chipper tone.

Zoella shoved the Doctor against a wall.

“You think this is funny?” She screamed in rage.

You’re right, I’m sorry, but had you blown us all up you’d have taken us with you. Now you might have a chance. We’ve fought the Daleks before and we’ve won against them. I have equipment in my vessel, the TARDIS that might be effective against them.”

“Might be?”

“Well I’m not exactly sure what year it is. These Daleks seem to be quite primitive if they have only just mastered teleportation, but still.”

“You’re saying you’re a time traveller?”

“Yes and I’ve seen the Daleks throughout their entire history. No one is ever able to completely destroy them. Some have survived their evil however, and you can too, but only if you let us help you.

“What do we have to loose Zoella?”  Resicha said.

“This vessel of yours? It’s on the level we found you?” Zoella asked.

“Yes we can take you there now.”

“I’ll take some of the team. I warn you however. If you try anything you’ll both die before either of us.”

The Dalek meanwhile had also detected the presence of something on the upper deck. The creature decided to investigate. It knew that none of the races in this galaxy had access to teleportation technology. At the same time he knew that it couldn’t be any more of his kind, as they couldn’t teleport this far.

When the Dalek arrived at the source of the disturbance, it was shocked to see the all too familiar blue box. It had heard so much of it back on Skaro. It belonged to the Doctor, their legendary enemy who had been attempting to destroy the Dalek race since their birth. The Dalek however had personally never believed these stories. Like all members of its kind it couldn’t fathom the idea of any life form being superior to them. It believed that the Doctor was just a lie invented by their leaders to make sure the Daleks never became stagnated.

Now however it was being faced with the reality of this enemy of the Daleks. It wasn’t scared however. More curious. The Dalek examined the strange blue box. It knew that its fire power couldn’t harm it, but perhaps there was something it could learn from the TARDIS.

“So tell me about your world.” The Doctor asked as they made the long trek back to the TARDIS.

“You really claim to not be one of us?” Zoella asked. The Doctor didn’t even bother to answer.

“Our world, Heglozia, was once the most advanced of its galaxy. It was a paradise world filled with red skies, golden water and green lands.”

“Was?”

“Like I said in order to keep the forcefield running and even just to supply weapons and resources to the other worlds. Our planet was stripped clean. It’s a waste land now. People fight for the tiniest, most basic resources, the air is polluted, diseases we conquered centuries ago have returned and run rampant; there are constant coups and civil wars to overthrow the governments. Since the start of this war about 80 percent of all life on Heglozia has been extinguished.  The Daleks almost don’t need to invade. They’ve already practically killed our world.”

“I’m sorry” Dana replied. “They did the same thing to my world too. It wasn’t in my time, but still seeing what they did to my people, I can’t imagine what it must have been like to live through it.”

“When the war started, everyone came to us for protection.” Zoella continued. “We had been the first race to develop space travel in our galaxy. We had a good head start on the others. We didn’t always treat them right. We exploited them during a large part of our history. Still we tried, we threw everything we could at the Dalek but we… we failed our kin.”

“I’ll make sure I won’t fail your world” the Doctor said.

“Well forgive for not believing you. Before this war started I had a family you know. I’ve not seen my son in so long now. I don’t think I’ll ever see him again” Zoella said with regret.

They soon reached the TARDIS thanks to the lift.

“That’s your ship? Is it not a little small?” Zoella asked.

“Dana can you go through the usual its bigger on the inside than the outside thing, I have to go and try cobble together something for the sake of this charming young woman’s species.”

As soon as the Doctor put the TARDIS key in the lock his entire body was consumed in a flashing blue light before he collapsed on the floor.

“DOCTOR!” Dana shouted as she rushed to his aid.

“Quick we have to get out of here” Zoella said. Two of Zoella’s men lifted the Doctor up by one arm each.

“STAY WHERE YOU ARE! YOU ARE TRAPPED” The Dalek shouted from the direction they had just come from.

“Quick we need to move now!” Zoella shouted as they darted down two more corridors and up a large flight of steps, with the Dalek in pursuit. (Its hover pad allowed it to fly up the stairs.)

The only way forward from here was to the control room. Once in there Zoella saw her former Captain, whimpering and shaking on the floor, a completely broken man.

Despite her recent differences with him, Zoella had still always admired her Captain. In his prime he had been one of her people’s greatest war heroes. To see him reduced to this by one of those monsters was both terrifying and heartbreaking.

One of the soldiers tried to shut the door, but the Dalek had jammed the controls. “YOU CANNOT ESCAPE YOU ARE TRAPPED” The Dalek barked from down the corridor as it glided towards them. The soldier attempted to shoot the monster and went for its eye stick, but the Dalek shot him down first.

The soldiers agonised screams were deafening and seemed to last a lot longer before his body crashed to the ground, his face twisted in the most horrific expression of agony.

Just then the Doctor suddenly jumped up and with his sonic screwdriver and sealed the door shut. The Dalek blasted at the door several times, and though it burned some holes in it, the door withstood the monsters weapon.

“Doctor I thought you were dead.”

“No that Dalek I’d wager wanted to interrogate me. Not to big myself up, but for a Dalek finding out I exist must be like finding out the monster under your bed is real. It underestimated me though. A little shock like that would have been enough to kill you, but me well.” Dana rolled her eyes.

“He’d take any excuse to boast” she thought.

“Better luck next time” the Doctor taunted the Dalek.

The Dalek didn’t respond however. It had other plans in mind.

The Captain started to scream and ran towards the door. The remaining soldier tried to restrain him, but it took the combined might of the soldier and Zoella to hold him in place.

“What did that thing do to him” the soldier shouted.

The Doctor used a Venusian neck pinch to render the Captain unconscious before examining him.

“I’ve seen them do this before. We must be at a fairly early point in the Daleks history right enough” the Doctor said.

“Before they’d mastered proper mind control techniques, they’d inject their victims with a chemical. It caused the most unimaginable pain in the victims to the point where it would literally break them. Turn them into nothing but slaves who obeyed the Daleks every whim. Often the victims just died, or they became vegetables. Clearly the Dalek was hoping to use it on the Captain so that when he reached your planet he’d vouch that the ship was free to enter the forcefield.”

“Is there anyway to reverse the chemical’s effects?” Zoella asked?

“I’m afraid not” the Doctor said.

Zoella then shot her Captain in the head. Dana and even the other soldier were absolutely horrified at her actions.

“You heard the expert. There’s nothing we could do for him. Besides now that monster can’t use him. He’d rather it was this way.”

The Doctor meanwhile who had understood her logic, started to work the controls.

“My people are a good bit ahead of the Daleks at this stage of development. More so than the Daleks are ahead of yours. I might be able to pilot the ship off course.”

“Where will we go?” the surviving soldier said grimly.

“To another galaxy for help. You’re right, you can’t even hold the Daleks off for much longer never mind beat them. We’ll need to keep looking until we find someone willing to help.”

“There is no life in the galaxy next to us. We explored it many centuries ago.” Zoella replied.

“Well then we’ll explore the one after that, and after that. With a few adjustments to this ship we should be able to find a new galaxy with a new civilisation sometime soon. The Daleks have a habit of uniting all other species together. Trust me, we won’t have to look hard to find someone willing to help. Case in point, me and Dana both come from galaxies trillions of light years beyond yours and we’re willing to help you against them.”

“ATTENTION, ATTENTION”. The Daleks voice suddenly croaked through its communicator.

“I HAVE DISCOVERED YOUR ALLIES YOU WILL SURRENDER THE DOCTOR OR THEY WILL BE EXTERMINATED!”

“It knew where we were hiding all along” Zoella said.

“Yes. It probably kept you alive in case the Captain died from the chemical so it could just pop down and snatch as many of you as it needed, either to use the chemical on or force to help it. It never once viewed any of you as a threat it needed to deal with right away.”

“YOU HAVE TEN SECONDS OR I WILL EXTERMINATE THEM.”

The voice of one of Zoella’s team came through the communicator.

“Please Zoella don’t give in, our lives aren’t important.”

She was suddenly cut off by a zapping sound, followed by a blood curdling scream. There were several more shots and screams, that were then followed by a deathly silence.

“All those men and women lost?” The soldier said with regret.

“Possibly” the Doctor said. “The Dalek won’t have slaughtered its entire leverage. It has something planned which is why I’ve got to act fast.”

In the safe room the Dalek had slaughtered everyone except for Resicha. The monster had sensed he was weaker than the others. The Dalek cornered the terrified soldier against a wall.

“YOU WILL SUFFER AS YOUR CAPTAIN SUFFERED UNLESS YOU OBEY ME!”

Resicha thought back to his Captain’s constant screams. He’d never been the strongest of the soldiers. In fact he had only signed up to avoid starving back home. Sadly at this point the war was so desperate, there were very few actual soldiers left. Zoella and the Captain were among the last. There is no way he would hold out.

“I’ll do whatever you want.” Resicha said to his eternal shame.

“YOU WILL SPEAK THROUGH THE COMMUNICATOR AND TELL YOUR SUPERIORS THAT THE VESSEL IS READY TO GO.”

“They won’t accept my word?”

“TELL THEM THAT YOU HAVE STOLEN DALEK TECHNOLOGY. YOU WILL BE GRANTED ACCESS. OBEY! OBEY! OBEY!”

Back on the flight deck the Doctor had struggled to take control of the ship.

“What, what’s wrong” Zoella asked.

“The Dalek has created a forcefield around the back up controls. It’s drawing energy from the core of the vessel itself. If I attempt to touch it, or even any of the wires; I’ll be vaporised. I could maybe try and find a way, but we don’t have time.”

“After all your talk of being the thing the Daleks fear in the dark, and it turns out you’re totally useless.” Zoella shouted.

“Well we’re not completely finished yet. I might be able to take over the communicator from here. We can warn your people before the Dalek can trick them.”

“But they’ll blast us out of the sky”? Dana said.

“I know Dana, it’s a risk we’ll have to take to save an entire world.” He said with regret.

“It’s just one Dalek?” She replied.

“You know what one of those things can do. Chances are it knows everything about their forcefield. The Daleks will have made the members of Zoella’s race they took prisoner talk. They can make anyone talk. If that thing gets down there, it could easily dismantle the forcefield and allow its army to get in. We have to stop it now.”

“I understand. Like you said. It’s a small sacrifice to save a planet.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to make it back to the TARDIS in time. The planet below will need us to survive too, as we’re the only ones who can fetch help. Still our first priority is too stop that monster from getting down there” the Doctor said as he tampered with the communications device.

There was a brief shock. “Damn he’s booby trapped everything, this isn’t as complicated as the guidance system however if I can just.”

“You’re too late.” Zoella said.

“We’ve reached our world”

Suddenly the they heard the voice of Resicha in the safe room coming through.

“Hello control, hello control, I would like you to lower the forcefield for us.”

“Resicha! The traitor!” Zoella shouted. “I’ll kill him, I swear.”

“We hear you, all vessel’s were ordered to stay and fight no matter what the cost, to save Meliscor.”

“We only fled because the Daleks had already destroyed their world. We also have Dalek technology. It’s vital for the war front.” He held up a Dalek sphere that the monster had given him through the visual communicator.

“Please this could help sway the war in our favour.”

There was a moments silence before the ship was given the all clear.

“The fools.” Dana shouted.

“They’re desperate.” The Doctor replied.

“The idea of having some of the Daleks technology to use against them. It was far too tempting.”

The Doctor continued to tamper with the controls. Several bolts of blue lightening started to shoot out across the room, one of which struck the surviving soldier knocking him back.

Zoella didn’t even bother to check on him, she was too fixated on what the Doctor was doing.

Dana tended to the soldier. He was badly burned from the blast, and could barely stand without Dana’s help.

“Finally! I’ve got it!” the Doctor said as he managed to adjust the speaker.

“Zoella quick whilst we still have control.”

As Zoella spoke through the communicator the Doctor tended to the soldier. He had been too worked up in dismantling the communicator to notice. “We need to get him help, fast or he won’t live” the Doctor said.

“This is first officer Zoella. The Captain is dead. Killed by a Dalek that’s still onboard. You have to shoot this vessel down now. Blow it to pieces before it can reach.” Suddenly the device broke down.

“Please, please don’t kill me” Resicha pathetically begged the Dalek as it cornered him.

“I did everything you said.”

“YES THE FORCE FIELD HAS BEEN LOWERED! WE ARE IN YOU WILL BE SPARED FOR THE MOMENT! YOU MAY BE USEFUL WHEN WE REACH YOUR PLANET FOLLOW ME!”

“We have to get to the TARDIS now” The Doctor said as he opened the door with his sonic screwdriver. Zoella and Dana carried the wounded soldier with them down the corridor and stairs.

The Doctor used his sonic screwdriver to try and detect the booby trap the Dalek had left on the TARDIS door.

“Come on Doctor” Dana shouted frantically.

“I’m trying believe me.”

Suddenly a Dalek ray blasted the door of the TARDIS, scattering the Doctor, Dana and Zoella.

The monster soon emerged from the corridor, with Resicha in tow.

“You pathetic coward. You sold out your entire world.”

“I’m sorry Zoella. Please forgive me. I’m not a real soldier, you know that. I couldn’t end up like the Captain.”

“Oh don’t worry you won’t” Zoella said coldly as she shot Resicha in the head.

“You monster.” Dana said with disgust to Zoella. “You’re no better than the Dalek”

“SILENCE” the monster shouted.

“You’re too late. They’ve already got the warning. You’ll go up in smoke with the rest of us.” The Doctor taunted.

“YOU WILL TAKE ME INSIDE YOUR VESSEL DOCTOR!”

“Never”

The Dalek responded by shooting the wounded soldier dead.

“YOU WILL OBEY OR THEY WILL DIE!”  It screeched.

Before the Dalek could make good on its threats, a massive explosion burst its way out of the flight deck. The ship was being fired at on all fronts.

The Dalek instantly retreated into the control room to try and pilot the vessel, whilst the Doctor attempted to dismantle the booby trap. A further knock to the ship however caused a massive piece of debris to fall on Zoella. Dana tried to life it up. Despite her feelings towards Zoella she wasn’t about to just leave her to die.

Unfortunately another piece of debris fell on the TARDIS and knocked the Doctor out cold.

Dana tried to rouse the Doctor as more and more flames began to burst their way from the corridors of the ship.

To Be Continued.

The History of N-Space: Part 4: The Never Ending Cycle

Image result for futurama city

The final segment of the history of N-Space. Not as much is known about this period as whole, though some eras such as the 31st century are well documented, other eras are still somewhat shrouded in mystery.

In this chapter we will look at the golden age of mankind in the 31st century, the fall of human civilisation, the final destruction of earth, the defeat of the Brain spawn, the third and final Dalek empire, and the ultimate fate of N-Space.

31st Century: The Second Golden Age of Man

At the start of the 31st century humanity had advanced to new levels of technological and societal development. Thanks to new breakthroughs in medical science, people in the 31st century on average lived well into their 150s. In fact life expectancy had become so great that people who exceeded the age of 160 were taken away to a gigantic space station outside the galaxy and placed into self preservation chambers to avoid overpopulation on earth and its various colonies.

On the space station the senior citizens would be plugged into a machine that would allow them to live in a virtual reality, where they would appear young and strong for the rest of their lives. (It is believed that humans could actually live up to over 200 years in the future.)

Other advances in technology allowed humanity to construct faster than light drives, which allowed them to explore the very furthest reaches of the universe.

Advances in robotics had also reached their peak during this century, with there being over 100 million sentient robots on the earth all with their own distinct personalities and identities.

Earth would also be home to various alien species too, among them included the Lobster like Decaponts and even some old enemies of humanity such as the Vampires and the Morgions.

Vampires had been driven to almost extinction following the Vampire wars but a few factions had survived in the ensuing centuries. They had never been able to regain their former power in our galaxy, but they were still able to cause a lot of trouble for the Democratic Order of Planets.

Whilst the Doop generally tended to exterminate any Vampire faction they came across, from the 29th century onward, new advances in neuroscience that could repress the violent aspects of Vampires personalities would allow the blood suckers to be rehabilitated for the first time. The monsters would still need blood to survive, but they survive on the blood of animals.

Whilst it still took a century’s worth of research, and various Vampires were killed in the experiments, ultimately the experiments were a success. Even then however they required such skill and money that only a few Vampires were rehabilitated. These Vampires were specifically chosen. They included many great scientists, architects, explorers and heroic figures from throughout earth’s history. After losing the war, the Vampires had become more picky about who they chose turn, hoping to build an army from only the very best specimens of humanity.

One of these reformed Vampires would later design and oversee the construction of the largest building in New New York, dubbed “The Vampire State Building”, within the first decade of the 31st century.

The Morgions meanwhile were a highly aggressive race who had almost gone to war with humanity in the late 30th century. A peace treaty had been signed in the 2990s however and as a sign of good faith several Morgions would be placed in high positions on earth. Among the most famous examples included Morbo who became a famous reporter on earth.

Despite the peace treaty there would be several close skirmishes between humanity and Morbo’s race. Even when hostilities ceased, many Morgions could not hide their contempt for humanity.

Throughout the first few decades of the 31st century, the Planet Express Crew would be involved in arguably the most important events concerning humanity and even the universe itself.

Planet Express originally began as just a small business, started by Professor Farnsworth to fund his scientific experiments. Farnsworth was one of the greatest scientific minds in the history of mankind. He had made many vast contributions to the field of robotics, yet despite this he was a somewhat controversial figure. Farnsworth was always reckless and arrogant. He only became worse in his later years as his senility and lapses in memory meant that his experiments were often dangerous and had catastrophic consequences.

In addition to this Farnsworth had also made many powerful enemies throughout his long life such as most notably Carol Miller, the owner of Momcorp, his former lover.

Farnsworth was dependent on Planet Express to keep his research going and though they were only a delivery company, they would often become involved in dangerous and important events. This was again as a result of the Professors reckless behaviour as he’d often send the crew on dangerous missions completely unprepared.

Throughout the 31st century the Planet Express team consisted of Turanga Leela, a one eyed mutant from the sewers who mistakenly believed she was an alien, left on earth by her parents, Philip J Fry, a delivery boy from the 20th century who had been cryogenically frozen for 1000 years, and Bender Bending Rodriguez, a robot.

Leela was the only competent member of the crew. Fry, though brave and kind hearted, was also careless and immature, whilst Bender was a cheat, a liar, a thief and a borderline sociopath.

Whilst Leela was in contrast smart, resourceful, brave, and both a skilled pilot and fighter. She could also be arrogant, obsessive and a little reckless too. On more than one occasion she got the crew into serious trouble such as when they faced the giant interdimensional whale, or when her reckless actions nearly got her and Fry killed by giant bees.

Still overall Leela was an effective and resourceful leader, and the Planet Express Crew were often able to improvise their way out of the problems they came across thanks to her quick thinking.

Among their notable early adventures included preventing a gigantic garbage ball from crashing into the earth, and preventing the Omicronians from destroying the earth in the year 3000.

The Omicronians were arguably the biggest threat to humanity in he early 31st century. Their technology was far in advance of the entire Doop.

The Omicronians despite regarding humanity as nothing but a plague on the universe loved human made forms of entertainment, in particular human television from the late 20th century.

The first Omicronian invasion of earth was caused by the interruption of the broadcast of an earth show “Single Female Lawyer”. (Though the show was broadcast in the late 20th century, it took one thousand years for the signals to reach Omicron Persei 8.)

Lrrr, the ruler of the planet Omicron Persei 8 led a vicious attack on the earth, killing 100s of millions of innocent people and decimating the entire Doop fleet. Lrrr threatened to destroy the entire earth unless he was able to see the final episode of Single Female Lawyer, and so the Planet Express Crew were forced to act it out to the Omicronians.

The Omicronians were satisfied enough with the ending of the Planet Express Crew’s version of Single Female Lawyer not to wipe out humanity, but they also were not satisfied with it enough to give humanity their secret recipe for immortality.

Whilst the Planet Express Crew saved humanity from the original Omicron invasion, they were ultimately responsible for the second invasion in the year 3001. Whilst on a long journey home from a delivery, the Planet Express Crew stumbled upon an Omicronian nursery. The Omirconian young were in their larvae form, and Leela and the others believed they were non sentient simple celled organisms.

When Leela later discovered that they were intelligent life forms she tried to stop the mass eating of Popplers, but by then it was too late. The Omicronians later attacked humanity and threatened to devour humanity in revenge. Zapp Brannigan however was able to negotiate a treaty with the Omicronians where they would devour only the first human who ate their young (ironically however this was Leela.)

One of the Omicronian young named Jrrr who had befriended Leela however was able to convince Lrrr not to eat Leela and leave humanity alone (though Lrrr still devoured an annoying human activist along the way.)

The crew would have more run ins with the Omicronians along the way, often ironically being forced to help Lrrr and his wife NdNd fix their marital problems.

The crew also had frequent run ins with Zapp Brannigan, who harboured feelings for Leela. Zapp Brannigan had originally been a celebrated hero of the Doop, but after a catastrophic defeat at the hands of the Killbots where he lost hundreds of thousands of men he suffered a nervous breakdown which he never fully recovered from. He later tried to spin his “victory” over the Killbots as being a noble sacrifice where young men volunteered to be slaughtered until the robots reached their pre set kill limit and shut down.

Still the effect this had on Captain Brannigan’s psyche was obvious. He became hopelessly incompetent, cowardly and child like after the war with the Killbots. Having devoted his life to the military for so long, he also began to focus on his personal life too, again with disastrous consequences. Sadly however Zapp’s previous victories and status as a celebrated hero meant that he was able to keep his position, despite his subordinates despising him. The Doop also found Zapp useful as he was often willing to do the Doops dirty work that other Doop commanders were not willing to do. Still to those who knew him, Zapp was a mere shell of his former self and a constant embarrassment for earth.

Leela absolutely despised Zapp Brannigan, but he was not the only enemy of high status the Planet Express crew would make over the years. Carol Miller, the Robot Devil, the Robot Santa, the Robot Mafia, President Nixon and even the tv chief Alcazar all became bitter enemies of members of the crew.

Among the Planet Express Crew’s other notable adventures included helping to foil the Decaponts brief invasion of earth, foiling Carol Miller’s plan to use robots to conquer humanity, curing an environmental crisis caused by robots, and foiling President Nixon’s attempts to destroy all robots on earth.

In the early 3010’s Leela would also lead a successful campaign to gain equal rights for the sewer mutants, allowing them to live on the surface. (After Leela discovered the truth about her heritage and reunited with her parents.)

The crew were also among the survivors of the doomed spaceship Titanic, and discovered the lost undersea city of Atlanta. The robot Bender would also encounter God himself after being lost in deep space. The creator of N-Space would take the form of a binary code to communicate with him.

By this stage, millions of years after his war with the Anti God, God had come to realise that the best way to help his creations was to use a light touch. God wanted to help his children,  but there were too many prayers from all the worlds to hear. Also the more dependent he made people on him, the more civilisations would stagnate.

Thus God now worked from behind the scenes, helping out in ways where his creations weren’t even aware of his influence.

Bender meets the father of N-Space.

Turanga Leela would also be responsible for freeing the Doctor, the Robinsons and the original Planet Express Crew from a gigantic interdimensional predator. The creature which resembled a gigantic Whale fed on obsession and would capture stray travellers, swallowing them whole and then keeping them alive in it’s stomach so that it could feed on their obsession.

The Doctor (in his fourth incarnation) the crew of the Jupiter 2, and the original Planet Express Crew were consumed by the predator that managed to catch them all by surprise.

Their obsession had fed the beast for many centuries and made it much stronger, but when it devoured Leela she was able to overpower the beast and fly it back to earth, where she released all of those it had devoured.

The Doctor is released from the Space Whale by Turanga Leela alongside the Robinson family, Doctor Smith, the Robot and the original and current Planet Express crew. 

The Doctor would go on to become a great friend of Fry and Leela afterwards. He even offered them a chance to travel with him, but ultimately the two turned him down. Many years later their daughter would go on to travel with the 10th Doctor.

The Robinson family meanwhile would be celebrated as heroes back on earth and quickly adjust to life in the 31st century. Doctor Smith in some respects actually found life in the 31st century preferable to his old life, as he lived in luxury with the Robinsons.

Unlike the others however Smith was not viewed as a hero. History had remembered the Doctor as a slimy, villainous saboteur. It was only on Will Robinson’s word that Smith wasn’t arrested and prosecuted as soon as they arrived back on earth. Will knew the truth about Doctor Smith, but as the two had developed such a close friendship over the years he supported Smith’s claim that he was on board the Jupiter 2 accidentally.

Still whilst the authorities closed the case, the public still tended to view Smith as a villain and he would spend the rest of his life desperately trying to repair his reputation.

The Robot meanwhile would also find life hard in the future as it was an obsolete piece of technology, and whilst many robots still revered him as a cybernetic hero, he struggled to find a purpose in the 31st century. At one point the Robot even considered allowing himself to become an exhibition in a museum, but Will Robinson refused and would as always support his friend through a difficult time. He would later find a purpose again as a member of Time’s Champions.

The Planet Express Crew would make several journey’s through time and space as well, many of which ended in disaster. The entire crew where thrown backwards in time to 1947 where they crashed in Roswell (becoming the source of the infamous crash. Their actions would also lead to the creation of the notorious Majestic, see 20th century section for full details.)

Bender would also using the Anti God’s curse travel backwards to various different points to carry out several crimes. Among the times he visited included the early 21st century during the Mekon’s invasion of earth. Here he looted New York as the Treen’s were levelling the city. Through a cloaking device Bender was able to make his ship appear like the Treens vessels in order to hide from them. (He also took part in some of the destruction and destroyed a few of the buildings around the cryogenics lab where Fry was in suspended animation.)

By far and away the crew’s most disastrous attempt at time travel however was when the Professor developed a machine capable of travelling only forwards in time. The Professor had attempted to test it with Fry and Bender by just a few minutes, but he went forward several hundred thousand years in the future to a point where the earth had been largely destroyed by the solar flares.

The Professor, Bender and Fry would continue travel forward in the future to a point where they hoped the backwards time machine would be invented, but they went forward too far and eventually reached a stage where all life on earth was extinct. With no way to escape, they were forced to go forward in time to when the universe would end. The three time travellers believed there was no way to get home and effectively were committing suicide by travelling to what they believed was the end of all things.

However to their surprise once N-Space ended, it started up again and they were able by travelling forwards to reach the correct point (though actually they went forward too far again and were forced to travel to the next version of N-Space.) The Professor incorrectly believed that these were different universes with the same history, but they were in fact the same universe being reborn over and over again.

Fry, Bender and the Professor are forced to journey through the entire history of N-Space to try and get home.

From this point on the history of N-Space differs in some versions. In some versions Fry is sadly from Leela’s perspective lost forever and though she goes on to take over Planet Express and turns it into a global business. Sadly she never finds love again and spends most of her life mourning Fry.

In the version we will be looking at however she and Fry and reunited again after the Professors device takes Fry to the right point.

The Professors actions would ultimately allow the Mesrak’s to discover the truth about N-Space’s cyclical nature in the far future when they monitored his history.

Over the course of their adventures together Philip J Fry would develop romantic feelings for Leela. She did not feel the same way at first however, only seeing him as a friend. Fry would try and win Leela’s heart through various means, but for almost ten years his attempts were a constant (and often embarrassing) failure.

Needless to say Leela would also sometimes get more than a little frustrated with Fry’s various attempts to woo her, but over time she would realize the depth of her feelings for Fry. The two would begin an on again, off again relationship in the 3010s and eventually marry (several times across various timelines.)

The Brain Spawn Invasion

Image result for the why of fry

Arguably the most important events in Philip J Fry’s life would be his battles against of one of the most dangerous and evil races in all of N-Space, the Brain Spawn.

The Brain Spawn were believed to be the Anti God’s first ever creation. The Brain Spawn had the power to drop the intelligence of any race they encountered, and had destroyed countless worlds throughout their million year long history. The monsters ultimate aim was to catalogue all of the history of N-Space and then destroy it. (They would then go on to do the same for other universes.)

The Nibblonians had been locked in conflict with the Brain Spawn since the beginning of N-Space, but they had never found a way to block the Brain Spawn’s powers and would always be rendered helpless whenever they tried to defeat the Spawn. Finally however after millions of years of hopeless battles and defeats, the Nibblonians would learn of a possible alternate future where the Brainspawn would finally be defeated.

The Nibblonians had attempted to master time travel. They knew of the Time Lords, but distrusted and despised them after their actions during Rassilon’s rule (which had nearly wiped the Nibblonians from history.)

The Nibblonians had only ever been able to look into the future, but not travel into it. They could see multiple timelines but sadly almost all of them ended with the Brainspawn destroying not just the Nibblonians, but all life in N-Space and all realities.

In one version however, one individual, a human male from the 20th century was able to destroy the Brain Spawn once and for all in a battle in the early 31st century.

The Nibblonians saw that this was because he lacked the Delta Brainwave, a feature common among all organic and mechanical creatures in the universe. The reason Fry lacked this trait was because he was in fact his own grand father, after sleeping with his own grandmother when he and the rest of the Planet Express Crew arrived back in the year 1947.

The Nibblonians considered allying with their hated enemies the Time Lords and using their facilities to travel to the future with Fry, however they saw that this would not be suitable for changing the future. Fry needed to live in the future to prevent other threats and become close to Leela in order to create another figure who would save the universe.

The Nibblonians also grew scared that if other species found out about Fry’s unique nature in lacking a delta brainwave then they would capture and experiment on him.

The Nibblonians decided to use earth’s technology to freeze Fry for 1000 years until the 31st century. During the 1000 years the Nibblonians would make several visits to earth to ensure that Fry was not killed by the various alien invaders that plagued the earth in the interim period.

When Fry was unfrozen Nibbler would later become a pet of Turanga Leela so he could keep an eye on Fry for when the time was right for him to battle the Brain Spawn.

That time came in the year 3002 when the Brain Spawn who had grown in power greatly launched a full scale invasion of earth. The monsters drained the intelligence of everyone on earth to catastrophic levels, but Nibbler was able to help Leela to escape the planet before the Brains attacked.

Nibbler explained to Leela that only Fry could stop the Brain and left her a note to give Fry, warning her that she would be too stupid once she was on earth to remember it.

Even with her limited intelligence Leela would help Fry battle the leader of the invasion of earth however, simply referred to as the Big Brain.

Fry was able to use the Big Brain’s powers to trap his enemies in a virtual world against him and send the Big Brain and his army away from earth.

After the Brain’s invasion was foiled no one on earth retained any memory of the Brain Spawn except for Fry, allowing Nibbler to return to his post and monitor both Fry and the earth in case the Brain Spawn returned,

2 years later Nibbler would approach Fry himself to help battle the Brain Spawn whose billion year war against the universe was about to reach its head.

The Brains had spent centuries exploring the universe, gathering information about all of the species of the universe. They now knew everything there was to know about the universe and from that knowledge had created a weapon capable of vaporizing N-Space into nothing.

Fry boarded the Brain Spawn’s sphere and planted the Nibblonians bomb which would blast the Brain Spawn into another uninhabited universe.

Whilst Fry was successful in setting off the bomb, the mini spaceship the Nibblonians gave Fry to escape broke down and he was trapped on the sphere as it was blasted into another universe.

Just before he was banished from N-Space, the Brain Spawn revealed the truth to Fry, that Nibbler had sent him to the future against his will. Whilst they were trapped in the other universe, the Brain Spawn was able to use its limited time travel technology to send Fry backwards in time to just before Nibbler froze him. Only Fry could travel backwards however as he was at the nexus point between so many different timelines.

Fry arrived back in the 21st century and grabbed Nibbler before he could freeze him. Nibbler was eventually able to convince Fry to allow his earlier self to be frozen in order to save Leela. He also let Fry know of a prophecy that stated Leela would be the Other. He didn’t elaborate on what this meant exactly, just that Fry and Leela were destined for great things together.

Just before he faded from time however Fry was able to let Nibbler know that the ship the Nibblonians had given him to escape was faulty, and so in the new timeline, the Nibblonians gave Fry a better escape ship which allowed him to set off the bomb, and escape the sphere before the Brain Spawn were blasted into another universe.

Once the universe was saved, Nibbler would wipe Fry’s memories of the event in order to preserve his cover once again.

Frozen Universe

Fry and Leela travel the world together when time is frozen.

By the end of the year 3013 Fry and Leela were in a full time committed relationship. After a near fatal accident on the moon, Fry decided to ask Leela to marry him. Leela was unsure at first and Fry told her to meet him at the Vampire State Building at 6:30 if she wished to marry him.

Sadly when Leela seemingly didn’t arrive at 6:30, Fry decided to commit suicide by throwing himself off the top of the Vampire State Building. Unfortunately as he fell to his death he saw that Leela was arriving at the Vampire State Building after all.

Fry had stolen the Professors new time machine which could send someone back a few seconds. His watch hadn’t adjusted to the time skips and so whilst it said 7:02 it was actually still half six.

Fry fell to his death, but Leela was able to catch the machine. She used it to go backwards in time but unfortunately it only went back to when Fry was already falling from the Vampire State Building.

Leela kept making Fry relive the same moment until she found a solution. Eventually Bender was able to break Fry’s fall, but unfortunately the Professors time machine was damaged in the process and it created a time field that froze the entire universe except for Fry and Leela.

Fry and Leela would spend several decades together in the frozen world. Though Fry tried to fix the time machine it soon became apparent that there was nothing he could do. Fry and Leela would marry in the frozen world and had a long and happy life together.

Towards the end of their lives, when it seemed as though time would never restart Fry and Leela were approached by the Professor on the Vampire State Building. Just before the universe was frozen Leela’s messing around with the time machine in an attempt to save Fry had seemingly vaporized the Professor. In truth it had simply trapped him in a time eddy and after several decades he was able to escape. The Professor would then repair the machine, though he was forced to send it back to before Fry and Leela accidentally broke the machine. Unfortunately the Professor, Fry and Leela would lose their memories of the event meaning that they would seemingly be doomed to relive the same actions over and over again.

Fry and Leela’s happy life together comes to an end where it began on the Vampire State Building. 

Fortunately before Fry and Leela’s actions could doom the universe a second time the Time Lords were able to detect a major threat to the time vortex, and quickly sent the 4th Doctor to the 31st century to deal with it. The Doctor was able to approach Leela and told her to visit the Vampire State Building much earlier to ensure Fry wouldn’t jump. He then destroyed the Professors time machine to prevent it from ever being used again.

In the new timeline Leela would accept Fry’s proposal just as before and the two wed quickly at the end of 3013.

The Return of The Brain Spawn

Related image

As Fry and Leela celebrated their new life together, the two would once again be forced into conflict with the most dangerous enemy they had ever faced. The Brainspawn.

One of the Brainspawn had managed to escape the Sphere before Fry had detonated the device. Now alone in the universe, the last Brain Spawn spent many years trying to free his kind from the other universe.

After several years of failure the Brain Spawn would come to the conclusion that it could never free its people, and so it instead tried to get revenge on the rest of the universe.

He would work with a renegade Robot named Merosta to destroy all life in the cosmos.

Merosta was originally built to monitor life on board a colony named Lena 12. Lena 12 was the most prestigious colony in the universe. Only the richest and most powerful aliens from all over the universe could live there. Its surface had been terrorformed to be the most beautiful paradise and it had access to technology far in advance of most other planets in the known universe.

Lena 12 naturally became a subject of hatred and derision throughout the universe. It regularly withheld advanced pieces of technology that could have helped poorer planets and worse, its people’s influence would often result in new forms of defence and medical advances being directed solely towards their world.

This would eventually lead to their downfall however as the descendants of the original people of Merosta became lazy and spoiled. Their planet began to crumble as they used up its resources, polluted its air and dragged it into a dark age.

The people of Lena 12 would soon pull their wealth into the development of a robot that would maintain their planet for them and do all all of their work. This single robot named Merosta was built over the course of several decades. It took so much work and money to build that only one was ever completed.

Merosta would serve the people of Lena 12 for many years, before it eventually turned on them. The Robot developed sentience and wanted to live in the beautiful paradise it had created on Lena 12 by itself. It easily slaughtered the useless humans it was supposed to save.

For the next several decades Merosta would live on Lena 12, sampling the fine food and wine, and enjoying the great art, literature and entertainment left over by the humans he had killed.

For decades Merosta was able to avoid the earth authorities who took no interest in the isolated elites of Lena 12. Occasionally Merosta, posing as the colonists of Lena 12 would demand that earth send more resources to Lena 12, but other than that the Robot was able to enjoy his solitude until the year 3015 when the Planet Express Crew crashed landed on Lena 12.

Merosta tried to kill them and even tried to trick Bender into betraying Fry and Leela, but ultimately the the three were able to escape and warn the earth of what had happened.

The Doop would launch an all out attack on Lena 12. Thanks to Zapp Brannigan’s usual incompetence, the surface of the planet was completely destroyed and all of the great art and literature lost. Merosta escaped meanwhile and became determined to wipe out not just humanity but all life in the universe.

Merosta had come to the conclusion that it would never be able to enjoy the complete solitude it so desired, and so he planned to exterminate every single life form. Then he would simply be able to wander the universe on his own, sampling the very best from all the cultures of the universe without having to deal with any interference.

Merosta would ally himself with the last of the Brain Spawn who similarly wanted to exterminate all life in the universe. (They both also held a very special hatred for Philip J Fry too.)

Merosta was able to create a plague that could attack a common feature among all the life forms of the universe (even Robots), a particular strain of DNA. At the same time however thanks to a machine Merosta constructed that could magnify someone’s mental capabilities, the last surviving Brain Spawn was able to send its field to lower people’s intelligence across the entire universe, making the most advanced life forms too stupid to be able to create a cure to Merosta’s plague.

Billions of people across the entire universe would be killed by the plague. On earth Fry, just as before was not affected by the Brain Spawn’s field due to the lack of Delta Brainwave. This time however he was crippled by the plague and physically unable to fight the Brain. Fortunately however Leela was immune to the plague. A mutation unique only to her meant that she lacked the strain of DNA the plague attacked.

Fry and Leela would be forced to work together in order to combat the combined threat of the Merosta and the Brain Spawn. Fry who physically was barely able to walk, was forced to advise Leela who was too stupid to even pilot the Planet Express ship by herself.

Working together the two were able to find Merosta and the last of the Brain Spawn and defeat them. Fry was able to tamper with the machine that augmented its powers, causing it to overheat and the Brain Spawn to fry, whilst Leela physically held off Merosta.

With her intelligence restored Leela was able to defeat Merosta. The great powers of the universe with their intelligence restored were then able, working together to create a cure for Merosta’s plague.

This event had been foreseen by the Nibblonians many centuries ago, which had led them to dub Leela “The Other” as it had only been the combination of her unique mutation and Fry’s lack of delta brainwave that had allowed them together to save the universe.

(In the original timeline when Fry was lost in the future, Leela did still manage to barely defeat the combination of Merosta and the Brain Spawn together. However it was only after trillions of worlds were destroyed by the plague including the Nibblonians and Decapont. Humanity itself was almost destroyed too.)

Following the defeat of Merosta and the Brain Spawn Fry and Leela would later have two children. Elena and Lia.

Artwork from LadyBender. She did NOT draw this for me. I found it online. 

Lia would go on to be a highly successful pilot and celebrated hero among the military, whilst Lena, initially would be something of a slacker. She developed a very close relationship with her uncle Bender who had something of a bad influence on her.

In the year 3132 however Elena would aid the Tenth Doctor in stopping the Daleks from invading the earth. These were the Renegade Daleks who had found a way to take control of people’s minds by attacking the Delta Brainwave. The Daleks ultimate aim was to use the machine to attack the Delta Brainwave and kill all other life forms in the universe. However the Daleks had not found a way to immunise themselves from their own weapon as they still had the brainwave too. Whilst the Daleks could simply broadcast a signal to target individuals and even groups to control their minds. In order to blast it across the universe to destroy every life form, the signal would need to be stronger to the point where they couldn’t protect themselves. Thus the monsters desperately searched for a way to make themselves immune.

The Daleks tested their mind control machine on the earth and turned all humanity, its robots, and any other aliens on the planet into their slaves. All except for Elena and her father were affected. Elena had inherited her fathers lack of Delta Brainwave, as had Lia. Lia however was away in a battle at the far edges of the solar system.

When the Daleks saw that two humans were immune to their machine they captured Fry and Elena and planned to dissect them to see why they were immune.

The Doctor however would rescue Fry and Elena. (The barrier around the Doctors Time Lord mind would protect him from the Daleks weapon for now. Their weapon was still somewhat cruder than the Brain Spawn’s natural ability to target the brain wave, which would have been able to penetrate the Doctors natural defences no problem.)

Working together, the Doctor, Fry and Elena would destroy the Daleks weapon and their invasion force on earth. After the Daleks were defeated, Elena would join the Doctor as his companion. Elena would go on to become one of the Doctors closest and longest serving companions, with the two developing a very close father/daughter relationship.

During their adventures, Elena would meet her future husband, Yarox who had come from billions of years in the future, at a point when the universe was dying and the earth had long since been destroyed. He joined the Doctor and Elena initially just to see the universe when it was younger, and the earth that he had only seen in legends.

Over the course of their many adventures together however, Elena and Yarox would fall in love and after she became pregnant with their child, they would return to the 31st century where they married in the year 3138. The Doctor would attend their wedding alongside Elena’s parents, her sister, and the rest of the Planet Express Crew. The Doctor and Bender would later come into conflict over who the Godfather of Elena and Yarox’s child was.

Leela and Fry’s lineage would continue for many thousands of years, with many of their descendants going on to be great heroes too. In the original version of events however when Fry was lost, then Elena was never born, and as she was never there to help the Tenth Doctor, he failed to save many worlds across the universe. He still lived to his 13th life however.

Also as Fry and Leela’s descendants were never born, many more calamities would befall the earth and other worlds, though humanity would still survive until the end of the universe.

Time’s Champions

The Thirteenth Doctor

After several hundred thousand years of imprisonment, the Anti God would be freed from his prison by the Federation of Evil. The Federation of Evil was an empire made up of the Anti God’s former minions who had bandied together. Demons, lesser Vampires, Centaurs, and various other abominations. They were one of the great powers of the universe, and were feared even by the Time Lords.

The Federation of Evil long sought to free their “father” and in the year 3150 they seemingly found a way when they were able to take control of “Death” herself. Being the most powerful of all the Guardians, the Federation of Evil attempted to use Death to free the Anti God by tearing a hole in the very fabric of N-Space itself. The Time Lords however quickly detected the disturbance, and launched an all out attack against the Federation of Evil. Whilst they normally did not interfere, even they realised what a huge threat the Anti God posed to the rest of creation.

Unfortunately the Federation were able to hold the entire Time Lord empire off with Death. Still the Time Lords at least, using all of their power were able to keep Death distracted for the time being, preventing her from freeing the Anti God.

Whilst Death was in disposed, the Time Lords would send the three most recent incarnations of the Doctor into the heart of the Federation of Evil (they didn’t have enough power to travel further back throughout his Time Line.)

They abducted the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors alongside their companions and sent them into the heart of the Federation. The three Doctors battled various monsters together including Centaurs, Kali (the Indian Goddess who in reality was a six armed alien that had been turned into a homicidal Vampire and later joined the Federation of Evil after leaving earth) and Zombie warriors.

The three Doctors however were ultimately able to free Death who destroyed the Federation of Evil in response for enslaving her.

The Three Doctors. The 11th (top) 10th (left) and 9th (right) were sent deep into the heart of the darkest place in the universe by the Time Lords to free Death herself.

Whilst most of the Federation of Evil were destroyed, unfortunately Death had created a tiny rip in the fabric of N-Space. It was too weak for the Anti God to get through, but still a few survivors of the Federation of Evil (including Kali) attempted to widen the rip. This time however they would be opposed by the 13th Doctor who arrived at the behest of the Time Lords. At the same time however, the Doop had also sent a team in to investigate.

Turanga Leela had joined the Doop after wanting to branch out from Planet Express and find something new. (Zapp Brannigan had by this stage been dishonourably discharged.)

The Doop had been sent to investigate the ruins of the Federation of Evil to find out what could have destroyed their entire empire overnight.

Leela was well into her 70s at this stage, but thanks to modern day medical science that meant she was only middle aged.

All of Leela’s garrison were destroyed by the monsters, except for Leela herself who was able to meet up with the Doctor. The two would also rescue Catherine Danforth from her prison.

After leaving the earth, Catherine had become devoted to stamping out the Anti God’s minions all over the entire universe. She had been a frequent enemy of the Federation of Evil, but at some point in the early 31st century they managed to kidnap her. They would subject Catherine to decades of torture, but she simply laughed at their attempts to hurt her, telling the monsters that she had endured torture from the Anti God himself!

Still the monsters held her prisoner for decades and after Death wiped out most of their forces Catherine was left to simply rot in her little prison. The Doctor and Leela however discovered her cell and freed her, and Catherine would help them stop the monsters from widening the rip to allow the Anti God to escape. Unfortunately however the Anti God was able to project itself into N-Space, but its power was greatly dwindled.

The Anti God was now no more powerful than a mid level Demon. It would be forced to work with the last of the Federation of Evil to try and fully bring itself into our universe.

The Time Lords would send out various agents to try and destroy the Anti God and the last of the Federation of Evil. They also naturally forced the Doctor to try and track down the monster, and even sabotaged his TARDIS for the second time, preventing it from being able to leave the 31st Century!

Leela and Catherine would willingly work with the Doctor to try and stop the Anti God meanwhile. Leela hated working for the Doop. She hoped after Zapp Brannigan had been dishonourably discharged that it had become a more credible organisation, but ultimately it was still corrupt to its core and run by incompetent, greedy and selfish men and women.

The Doctor meanwhile was an old friend of Leela’s who had saved her daughters life, whilst Catherine was eager to make the Anti God suffer.

The three however found that they were no match for the remnants of the Federation of Evil, and so the Doctor would pick up various other heroes from across N-Space’s history for help (the Time Lords would allow the Doctor to make a few trips across time and even to another universe to pick up people to help him.)

The Doctor chose, Dan Dare, Sondar, Morag, his former companions Ace Rimmer and Avon, The Robot from the original Jupiter 2 mission, Captain Jack Harkness (who he picked up from M-Space, long into the future. The Doctor of N-Space and Jack were old friends, with Jack having met him throughout all of his lives.) They would also occasionally even recruit Godzilla to fight larger threats, though obviously Godzilla was not an official member of the team.

Together this group who would be dubbed “Time’s Champions” would battle the forces of the Anti God as well as various other threats including the Daleks, the Cybermen, and the Master.

In the year 3165 Time’s Champions were able to banish the Anti God back to his prison for the rest of N-Space’s history with the last of the Federation of Evil finally being destroyed in the process.

Leela would later retire and spend her final years with Fry.  She passed away in the year 3218.

Philip J Fry and his daughter Elena would later have their final battle with the Brain Spawn in the year 3223

These Brain Spawn had managed to escape their imprisonment in the Sphere. Using the resources of the Sphere itself, the Brain Spawn were able to perform experiments on themselves to be able to travel through dimensions. The creatures experiments however had left them with other mutations. Now they could not only reduce their enemies intelligence, but drive them insane too! Using this power they no longer needed weapons and were able to make races, planets, entire empires destroy themselves.

Fry and Elena, being the only two who were immune again were forced to infiltrate the Brain Spawn’s hideout where they used a weapon, created by the Nibblonians, which fired a signal, back across the Brain Spawn’s ray that they used to drive other life forms insane which destroyed the Brains.

Whilst Fry and Elena were able to destroy the Brain Spawn for good this way, sadly Fry was mortally wounded in the process by one of the humans the Brain Spawn had driven mad. He died in his daughters arms, feeling content with his lot in life and was buried alongside Leela.

(In the original timeline without Fry and Elena a massive war broke out between various other races and the Brain Spawn. The combined forces were able to build a weapon to use against the Brain Spawn which did destroy them, but at a cost of hundreds of Galaxies, including the Andromeda Galaxy.)

The Fall of Mankind

Over the next 1000 years peace would reign in the galaxy, but sadly it was not to last as the old threats of the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Furons began to rise again.

The Daleks had been driven almost to extinction by the end of the 32nd century. Not only had a civil war between Davros’ Daleks and the Renegades dwindled their already diminished numbers, but the real blow came in the early 32nd century when the 7th Doctors actions involving the Hand of Omega in the 1960s resulted in the destruction of Skaro in the 32nd century.

Whilst the Imperials were wiped out by the 7th Doctors actions, a few Renegades survived back in the 32nd century and would slowly rebuild their power source over the next several hundred years. Davros meanwhile after returning to his own time would attempt to build a new race of Daleks again, but he would later be captured by the former renegade Daleks. They did not kill him however. Realising that they needed him due to his genius and the knowledge he had of the Time Lords, the Daleks would keep Davros as their prisoner, though they made many concessions to him.

Davros would try and take control of the Daleks many more times, but as the centuries went on, Davros became content with his role. Whilst he might never lead them, Davros was the only creature in the entire universe that they would go to for help.

The new Dalek empire would slowly build itself up over the course of the next thousand years to be the largest and strongest of all their empires. By the year 4000 the Daleks would attempt to exterminate humanity through the construction of a weapon called the Time Destructor which could age an entire planet to dust. Fortunately however these attempts were foiled by the First Doctor, though the empire would continue to persist.

The Cybermen meanwhile had similarly been driven to almost extinction but they too slowly built up their forces across the universe and overcome many of their previous weaknesses.

At the same time, the Furons, having been given more help by humanity over the years had now become a force to be reckoned with in the universe again. Unlike the Daleks and the Cybermen however, the Furons bore humanity no ill will and even sought to protect them from other threats. They were often shunned by humanity however who didn’t want to be associated with the new Furon empire or become dependent on them.

Unfortunately however from the 40th century onward this would lead to problems. Earth began to panic at the rise of the Daleks and the Cybermen (even more so after the Time Destructor incident which had led to a war between various other powers and the Daleks for a few decades.) As a result mankind would pour all of its resources into developing super weapons to defend itself.

Problems would soon arise however as countries began to fight over ownership over certain weapons, despite the unified earth government and eventually this led to a global conflict at the end of the 40th century which destroyed all of human civilisation and laid waste to the planet earth. The earth colonies believing the earth was dead would abandon it, and over the next couple of hundred years most of these colonies would be destroyed by the Daleks and the Cybermen, or they would later become part of the new Galactic Federation which took the place of the Doop.

Only a few humans survived the war on earth and they would all be left mutated albeit in different ways.

Some of the humans were reduced mentally to the levels of animals and scoured the radioactive wastelands for food and water. Others however were mutated mentally in other ways. The dormant Furon DNA in their bodies was accelerated and they developed telepathic abilities. Unfortunately however these advanced mental abilities also caused them to become more unbalanced and irrational. These humans were also mutated physically too, with their hair falling out, and their skin turning hard and red and veiny.

These mutated humans believed the surface of the earth was uninhabitable and so they retreated underground to the ruins of Old New York. There they came to worship an unexploded atomic bomb from the 20th century. The bomb was the most dangerous weapon ever devised by man and had never been used, even when earth was under threat from aliens such as Mekon, as they feared it would destroy the planet.

The mutant humans believed the bomb was god and would regularly sing hyms to it.

The dark future of humanity in the 44th century.

On the surface meanwhile a new race would emerge in mankinds place. Throughout the 30th century mankind had performed experiments on various animals, accelerating their intelligence to human like levels.

After the world war destroyed human civilisation, the hyper intelligent apes wold prove to be the most successful creatures. They were able to huddle together in the wasteland and build a small, albeit extremely primitive society. These Apes followed a religion set down by an Ape known as the Law Giver, who came to believe that all of humanity was evil. He wrote down that Apes were gods chosen people and that man was the enemy.

The Ape society would be made up of 3 different species. Chimps who became the scientists, Apes who became the soldiers and hunters, and Orangutans who became the leaders and politicians.

The Ape society would last for close to 300 years. During that time they came to believe that they were the first society ever to exist on the earth. However towards the end of the 44th century, the Apes would face a threat as the beast man returned.

Fall of the Planet of the Apes

Image result for charlton heston planet of the apes

The three astronauts, Taylor, Landon and Dodge who had fallen through the time fissure outside of the earth in the 20th century crash landed onto earth near the end of the 44th century. Finding nothing but a desert for miles, the trio believed that they had landed on an alien planet.

When they made their way to a nearby jungle they encountered some primitive humanoids, one of whom, a young female that they came to name Nova, Taylor took a shine too.

Unfortunately however not long after making contact with the humans, the Apes appeared and started to hunt the humans. The Apes, thanks to the law givers teachings considered mankind to be the most degenerate beasts and so they took a sadistic pleasure in hunting, torturing and killing them.

Taylor, Landon and Dodge were caught up in the hunt and Dodge was killed, whilst Taylor and Landon were captured, though Taylor was wounded in the throat, which prevented him from being able to speak.

Taylor, Landon and Dodge discover that mankind has fallen from the top of the food chain. 

Taylor would be experimented on by the Apes for a few days afterwards as they mistook him for just a simple beast. Once he regained his speech however, the Apes still did not believe that Taylor was a genuinely intelligent creature. The Orangutans believed him to be a mutation and wanted to dissect him.

Two Chimpanzees, Zira and Cornelius would attempt to defend Taylor as they believed him to be a missing link between Apes and humanity. However they were dismissed as heretics by the Orangutans for this.

One of the Orangutans, Doctor Zaius knew the truth not just about Taylor, but humanity in general. He covered it up as he felt that it was better for Apes to believe they were God’s chosen people and that mankind was evil.

Zaius had already lobotomised Landon and now sought to do the same to Taylor, but Taylor was able to escape with Zira and Cornelius’ help. Taylor would also rescue Nova along the way.

Together they made their way to the Forbidden Zone, an area just outside the wasteland Taylor and the others had landed in.

They were followed there by Doctor Zaius and after a confrontation, Taylor was able to gather proof that there had once been an advanced human civilisation to Zira and Cornelius.

Zaius admitted to Taylor that he had always known about mankind but that he considered him to be utterly repugnant and evil, but Taylor did not listen and headed further into the Forbidden Zone with Nova to escape the Apes. There he learned the awful truth that this was actually his planet, and that man had wiped themselves out after all.

Back in the Apes city things returned to normal. Doctor Zaius covered up the evidence of a previous human civilisation and with Taylor long gone, the Apes continued to believe that they were the only people on earth, but soon new problems began to emerge.

The Apes food supplies began to ran out thanks to the humans eating their crops. In desperation they sent various scouts out into the forbidden zone. The scouts however either disappeared or returned completely insane.  The Ape scouts had actually ventured into the city of the mutant humans who had tortured them into insanity for information.

The Orangutans felt that this was proof there was another intelligent society out there and so they decided to investigate the forbidden zone. Whilst claiming to simply want to find out if there were other intelligent beings out there. In truth the Apes wanted to conquer them and use their resources. Doctor Zauis himself personally led an army of Gorillas into the mutants city.

Meanwhile Taylor had been kidnapped by the mutants who imprisoned him within the ruins of their city. Nova searched the wastelands for help and eventually came into contact with another astronaut from the 20th century, Brent whose ship had fallen through time.

Brent and Nova eventually stumbled upon the mutants city too, where the mutants tortured them for information on the apes, before forcing Taylor and Brent to try and kill each other using their mind control powers.

Unfortunately however for the mutants their powers did not work on the Apes, whose skulls were too thick, and so when the Apes marched on their city, the mutants were completely defenceless. The Apes slaughtered hundreds of the mutants including their leader.

Over the course of the war, Nova was killed as well, whilst Brent and Taylor attempted to stop the Apes from accidentally setting off the bomb. Brent was killed after a shoot out, whilst Taylor was mortally wounded. With his last breath, Taylor set the bomb off. The entire surface of the planet was consumed in an atomic blast. Not long after its destruction God visited our solar system for the first time in several hundred thousand years. He had never taken that much interest in the earth and upon seeing how it had destroyed itself, he remarked bitterly before leaving.

“In one of the countless billions of galaxies in the universe lies a medium sized star, and one of its satellites, a green and insignificant planet, is now dead.”

In truth however a few of the Apes and humans had survived the nuclear holocaust. During the war some of the mutants had retreated underground to a special bomb shelter that had been built in the late 31st century to withstand another full scale invasion like the Dalek invasion. The shelter could hold potentially hundreds of thousands of people.  It was more like a mini city.

The Apes were able to make their way into the shelter by threatening to murder the mutants they had prisoner. Once they were inside the shelter Apes shut the door behind them and started to slaughter the mutants. Before they could finish the job however the bomb went off.

The Apes quickly realised that in order to survive they would have to work with their human enemies.

The two species would be forced to live in the shelter for many years, waiting for the radiation levels to drop, before they were able to venture onto the surface. There was enough food supplies in the shelter for the meagre numbers of Apes and Mutants.

The two races would scour the radioactive wastelands for years searching for other survivors and food. They would eventually discover, deep underground, the ruins of another 20th century relic. UNIT HQ.

UNIT HQ had sunk under the earth during the Mekon’s first invasion of earth.  Most of the alien technology had been destroyed, but some of it had persevered under the earth, buried under tons of rubble. The explosion from the bomb had cleared away the rubble however and destroyed most of the ruins of UNIT HQ. However the most precious alien technology that had been preserved in the black archive by a shelter had survived and would be found and salvaged by the Apes and Mutants.

The humans of the 21st century had not used the technology as it had been very unpredictable in tests, though of course the Apes and the Mutants no longer cared as their planet was already dead.

Many of their attempts to master the technology would end in utter disaster. One group of Apes and mutant humans believed that the earth could not be saved, and so they used time travel technology and travelled back to the 20th century to try and take over early man (with the technology allowing them to still exist despite killing their ancestors.)

The Apes and the Mutants would create a gigantic mechanical version of Godzilla, dubbed Mechagodzilla to conquer the earth in the 20th century. (See 20th century section for the full details.) Another time travelling group of Apes meanwhile would whilst trying to travel backwards in time project themselves back further in time and to a distant planet Zandor where they settled. These Apes would also splice their DNA with that of aliens (taken from samples in UNIT HQ.) Among the aliens DNA they experimented with included Time Lord DNA, which would allow these Apes the power to regenerate. These Apes would come to be known as Calarons.

Back in the 44th century meanwhile the two races working together were eventually able, using the salvaged UNIT tech, to terrorform the earth into a habitable planet again. Over the course of the next several hundred years the humans and the Apes working together would create a highly advanced and prosperous world. The humans would also genetically alter their bodies fix their mutations. They had realized that their mental powers had led to great mental imbalances. By the 47th century humanity and its new neighbours were ready to branch out into the stars again and it would initially come into contact with its old ally, the Furon empire.

The Furons by this stage were locked in a war with the Galactic Federation that had risen up since the fall of earth. Among the powers of the Galactic Federation were the Ice Warriors.

The Furons helped both humanity and the Apes, claiming that they cared about the human race and wanted to help them due to the fact that modern man was descended from the Furons. They supplied them with advanced technology and promised them they could make mankind a galactic power again. Humanity wanted nothing more than to be a major force in the universe again and so they quickly fell under the influence of the Furons.

Naturally the Furons favoured humanity over the Apes which would lead to the Apes being seen as second class citizens on earth. There were fewer Apes on earth than humans, and despite how well both species had worked together to rebuild their shattered planet, there were still lingering resentments from both species towards one another. Many Apes still followed the Law Givers teachings which said that all of humanity was evil, and cited the fact that it was a weapon created by man that had almost burned the earth to nothing as further proof of his teachings. Thus the humans were only too happy to turn on their simian neighbours at the Furons urging.

The Furons in reality however didn’t really care about humanity. They simply wanted as many disposable foot soldiers to use in their war against the Federation as possible.

Many humans and Apes were killed fighting in the Furons cause. Fortunately however several Apes and humans on earth saw the Furons for what they really and formed resistance groups against the current earth government that was under the thumb of the Furons. These resistance groups were able to provide the Federation with inside information about the Furons, and the Federation in turn would supply them with enough aid that they were able to overthrow the earth government. The Furons response was brutal however and they very nearly destroyed the earth again. Fortunately however the Federation were able to beat the  Furons back and destroyed their new empire. The Ice Warriors themselves would strike the final blow against the Furons as revenge for the destruction of ancient Mars.

The new earth government would become a part of the galactic Federation after the destruction of the Furon empire. For the next several thousand years humanity now established as part of a major galactic power would largely enjoy a peaceful existence, though technologically speaking it was never able to match the golden age of the 30th-39th centuries. In the 50th century, time travel experiments would end in disaster and very nearly led to another World War. One of the worst criminals of this period, Magnus Creel would travel back to the 19th century in a disastrous attempt to finish his experiments. (See the 19th century for full details.)

There would also be a few more skirmishes and wars with races such as the Daleks and the Cybermen too. In the 53rd century, mankind along with the rest of the Federation would be drawn into a war with Galaxy 5.

By the 60th century the Daleks had reached a level where they matched the Time Lords. Both races, mindful that a full blown war could lead to their destruction would engage in a cold war with one another for many more thousands of years to come afterwards.

This cold war would end in the 96th century when the Daleks and Davros would create their ultimate weapon capable of erasing all universes from existence. The weapon was destroyed by the 13th Doctor who was sadly killed in the process (as was Davros.)

The 13th and final Doctor would later be buried on Gallifrey where he was celebrated as their greatest hero.

The Daleks power was greatly crippled thanks to the 13 Doctors final actions, and they would never be able to match the Time Lords again. Slowly over the next several thousand years, their empire would begin to crumble once again.

At the start of the 97th century mankind and the Apes, having long since left the Federation would be forced to abandon their home planet, earth, when it was bombarded by solar flares from the sun.

The earth was rendered uninhabitable, and one group of humans placed themselves into cryogenic suspension on a gigantic ship known as the Nerva Beacon until they could return home whilst the rest along with the Apes would colonise various other worlds and even build up a small empire.

Some humans and Apes were left behind on the earth. Whilst most of them died, a few did survive as nomads for a few centuries afterwards.

In the year 10000 Philip J Fry, Bender, and Professor Farnsworth arrive in Farnsworth’s forwards only time machine where they visit the ruins of earth’s civilisation. They stumble upon a reconstruction of the Statue of Liberty, as well as a replica the Apes built of an Ape after earth was terroformed and other statues built by alien races who came to live on the earth in the eons humanity was a part of the Galactic Federation. These statues were created together as a sign of unity of all the races living together on earth.

Realizing that they would never be able to get home unless they travel to a point where the backwards time machine was invented, Bender, Fry and the Professor travelled forwards in time.

Ironically whilst this was going on, the Doctor arrived on the Nerva Beacon as it approached earth. Unfortunately however the Beacon was under attack by a hideous race of parasites known as the Wirren who wanted to wipe out humanity. The Doctor and his companions, Sarah and Harry however destroyed the Wirren before travelling ahead to earth. There they discovered the Sontaran Styre had kidnapped several humans who he brutally tortured in some cases to death, in order to find out humanity’s weaknesses.

At this stage the Sontarans and the Rutans were still waging a war against one another and the Sontarans believe that earth could be of strategic value. The Doctor however would manage to destroy Styre and all of his experiments preventing a full scale Sontaran invasion of earth.

The humans on the Beacon would successfully recolonise the earth and restore it to its former glory for several centuries afterwards. Most of the Apes who left the earth however would remain on outer colonies, believing the planet to be beyond saving once again.

By the year 105105 earth would be ravaged by a third ice age. Fry, Bender and the Professor briefly arrived in this period only to leave when they saw it was not advanced enough to have created a backwards time machine.

Ironically however once again, not long after they left the Doctor in his Second incarnation arrived with his companions, Jamie and Victoria. The three of them help to defeat a group of Ice Warriors buried under the ice for thousands of years, who are awoken by a group of human explorers.

Eventually the Ice Age would come to an end, but human civilisation would fall once more and enter into a second dark ages where magic is the dominant force on earth.

Fry, Bender and the Professor briefly visit this period before once again quickly departing.

By the year 351 120, earth was covered completely in water and gigantic blood thirsty monstrous shrimps prey on the humans who now live in an underwater city.

This time period is visited by Philip J Fry, the Professor and Bender who are nearly devoured by one of the oceans giant super predators before departing once more.

By the year 1 million the oceans have dried up and mankind has been able to establish a highly advanced society once again. Unfortunately however one of the creatures created to serve mankind, a monster created from the DNA of past creatures to exist on the earth (including various alien life forms, and even that of a Giraffe) is able to enslave large sections of humanity.

Fry, Bender and the Professor briefly visit this time, witnessing the Giraffe like creature persecuting its human slaves before being forced to travel forwards in time once again.

Not long after they leave the First Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan arrive and are able to overthrow the monster, saving humanity once again.

Humanity continues to flourish on the earth and on other planets across the universe for millions of more years to come.

The Dwarfers

Related image

3 million years into the future, the humans fleeing from the Dalek Invasion in the 22nd century are awoken from their several million year slumber. Having drifted millions of light years away from earth, these humans incorrectly believe that they are the last humans left alive in the universe.

These humans build an empire that will last for a couple of hundred years. During that time they will construct various robots to serve them including Mechanoids and Simulants as well as various genetically engineered life forms.

Unfortunately however both the Simulants and the GELFS would eventually overthrow their human masters and virtually wipe them out. They would also go on to exterminate most other life forms in that part of the galaxy too.

Not long after the fall of this earth empire, the spaceship Red Dwarf drifted into this area of space. Its single surviving crew member, Dave Lister had also been in stasis for 3 million years. Meanwhile during that time on board Red Dwarf, Listers pregnant pet cat that had survived in the cargo hold’s descendants had evolved into a race of sentient cat people. The Cat people however almost wiped themselves out in religious wars before fleeing Red Dwarf. They left behind the old and the sick to die, and eventually only male specimen remained on Red Dwarf.

When Lister was awoken from his stasis by the ships computer Holly, his former bunkmate, Arnold Rimmer would be revived as a hologram to keep him company.

The two would later encounter the last male Cat, who Lister would simply dub The Cat. None of the crew particularly liked each other, but they still often spent all of their time together to avoid going insane out of loneliness.

For the first year or so the Dwarfers would simply drift through space aimlessly. Lister incorrectly believed that all life in the universe had become extinct in the millions of years they had been drifting through space.

Rimmer however felt that there had to be intelligent life out there, though he was often a little too eager to assume anything slightly peculiar was the work of aliens.

After a year or so drifting through space, the Dwarfers would encounter a lost Mechanoid named Kryten. Kryten’s ship the Nova 5 had crashed in an accident during the Simulant wars, killing all of the crew except for Kryten. Having been programmed to serve the crew members no matter what, Kryten continued to serve them long after death.

When the Dwarfers found Kryten they would take him back to Red Dwarf. There Rimmer attempted to take advantage of Kryten’s docile nature and make him his servant, but Lister convinced Kryten to break his programming.

Kryten would then explore the galaxy using Listers space bike, but unfortunately he crashed into an asteroid which smashed him to pieces. Lister was able to repair Kryten but his factory settings were restored, meaning Lister would have to help him try and break his programming again.

The four Dwarfers would have many encounters with Simulants, Gelfs and other remnants of the human empire that had fallen before their arrival.

5 years into their travels however after an encounter with a particularly nasty GELF called a dispair squid, Red Dwarf would be stolen from its crew by Krtyen’s nanobots.

The Dwarfers travelling in a scout ship called Star Bug would be forced to chase Red Dwarf across the galaxy. During their adventures the crew would have more encounters with the GELFS and Simulants. Not all of these were hostile however. One GELF named Legion would successfully construct a hard light drive which allowed Arnold Rimmer to actually have a physical body. Added to that the body created by the Hard Light drive was virtually indestructable too.

The Dwarfers most dangerous encounter however would be with their own future selves. In the original timeline the Dwarfers discovered a time machine, built by the human colonists in the far future. Later after meeting up with one of the few advanced alien civilisations left in this area of the galaxy, the Dwarfers were able to acquire a faster than light drive.

The foursome would use the combination of the two machines to travel all across N-Space. Lister would save Kristine Kochanski, the woman he loved. Kochanski was on board the Red Dwarf when the accident struck the ship, and she would go on to travel with the Dwarfers throughout all of time and space too, eventually marrying Lister.

Sadly however unlike the Doctor, access to time travel would corrupt all of the Dwarfers. They became arrogant, selfish and were not above associating with some of the absolute worst figures throughout history if it suited them.

These versions of the Dwarfers had actually met their earlier selves years earlier, when Lister, the Cat and Rimmer had found a way to travel backwards in time on Red Dwarf thanks to a stasis leak. They met Lister not long after he had married Kochanski.

At some point on their travels however Lister and Kochanski would be caught in an accident where Kochanski was killed, whilst Lister was reduced to a brain in a jar. Further troubles would strike the Dwarfers when their time machine was damaged and they were hurled back to their original time and place, 3 million years in the future.

The future Dwarfers approached their earlier selves and asked for their help. The future Dwarfers needed to study and analyse their earlier selves, still working time machine in order to duplicate its time drive for theirs.

However after meeting their future selves, the past Dwarfers became disgusted with them. They dismissed their future counterparts as amoral, free loading scum and forced them out at gun point.

The future Dwarfers did not give up however. They couldn’t bare the thought of going back to their old lives of being trapped in deep space and actually attacked their earlier selves. They told them that it would be better to cease to exist by killing their old selves than live like rats, trapped together in deep space forever.

In the battle, the future Dwarfers whose ship was more advanced were able to slaughter their earlier selves, but just before his death the past version of Arnold Rimmer was able to destroy the time drive which erased the future versions of the Dwarfers.

Time was then restored to a few days to just before the present Dwarfers discovered the original time machine. In addition to this however the two time lines crossing over and being erased had caused elements of the future timeline to seep into the current one. As a result the current Star Bug was far larger and more advanced than it originally was. Also the time machine was merged with its counterpart from the future too, which meant that it could travel through time and space.

The Dwarfers would use this machine to try and visit the 20th century, but sadly they arrived in 1963 which led to changes in the time line that they were able to fix, though only after much calamity (see 20th century section.)

The Dwarfers would later be visited by an alternate reality version of Arnold Rimmer known as Ace Rimmer.

Ace Rimmer was a brave, dashing, noble hero beloved and respected by almost all those he came into contact with. The N-Space version of Rimmer meanwhile was a miserable, uptight, petty, self serving coward who was detested by the other Dwarfers.

Though his relationship with them had improved over the years, and he had shown some bravery against his future selves, Rimmer was still the source of most of the Dwarfers problems both directly and indirectly.

Rimmer hated Ace who had visited their crew many years before they lost Red Dwarf, considering him to be the version who had all the luck and breaks that he never did. Ironically the only reason Ace had made something of himself was because he had been held back a year in school which caused him to buckle down, whilst the N-Space Rimmer had spent the rest of his life making excuses for his awful behaviour and constant failures.

Ace however quickly revealed to Rimmer that he wasn’t the same Ace he had met years earlier. The original Ace had at some point been killed in action, but before his death he ensured his legacy would never die. He trained another alternate version of Rimmer to be just like him, and he eventually took over as the new Ace. He then went on to train another, who went on to train another and so on. The current Ace told his N-Space counterpart that there have been literally thousands of Ace Rimmers and that it is the destiny of all versions of Rimmer to eventually become Ace Rimmer. This Ace also told his N-Space counterpart that he was dying and wanted the N-Space Rimmer to succeed him.

Lister was somewhat skeptical that the self serving coward he had known for years could change, but ultimately helped the N-Space Rimmer realize that it was his destiny to become Ace and after the current Ace died, he left to become the new Ace Rimmer.

Ace’s machine could travel in time and space (as well as across universes) and the N-Space version of Rimmer would go on many adventures. He would struggle at first, but in time he became a great hero just like his forebears.

Eventually however Ace Rimmers time machine would become damaged and he would end up stuck in the 50th century. There he would meet the 8th Doctor (who was travelling with Avon at that point.) The 8th Doctor took Ace Rimmer on as a companion and the three of them would go on many more adventures throughout time and space together saving many worlds and even stopping the Anti God in the late 20th century (see previous section.)

Eventually however after many years Rimmer would leave the Doctor and settle in humanity’s far future during the great robot wars where he would help the human race defeat the robots. After this the 13th Doctor would then recruit him as a member of the Time’s Champions and he would work with them throughout their entire tenure before resuming his journey’s through time and space and the multiverse for many more years before passing on the mantle of Ace Rimmer once again. Ironically though the original Ace considered the N-Space Rimmer to be the most worthless version of him he had ever encountered in the entire Multiverse (and at that point he most likely was.) The N-Space Rimmer went on to be the greatest version of Ace there had ever been.

The 3 remaining Dwarfers would later pick up an alternate universe version of Kristine Kochanski as their new crew member. Lister discovered that this version of Kochanski was in fact his own mother and that he was his own father. Lister had been abandoned in a box under a pool table when he was just a boy. He never had any inclination of who his real parents were, except for some writing on the box “Ouroboros”.

Lister would later learn however that he had impregnated the alternate Kochanski and then travelled backwards in time and abandoned his infant self under the pool table, with ouroboros representing an ancient symbol a snake eating itself. Lister came to believe that this meant that the human race could never truly go extinct as Lister was effectively trapped in a time loop with his earlier self.

Sadly however Kochanski was left trapped in N-Space away from her version of Dave Lister who she loved dearly. It would take Kochanski a long while to warm to this version of Lister who she regarded initially as a disgusting bum.

Kochanski would go on many more adventures with the Dwarfers of N-Space, battling their old enemies, the GELFS and the Simulants, but it would be an encounter with the lethal, intelligent virus known as the Epideme that would change the lives of the Dwarfers forever.

The Epideme infected Dave Lister and though Kochanski was able to destroy the malignant virus once and for all, sadly she had to sacrifice Listers arm in the process. Kryten believed that if they could find his old nanobots then they could build Lister a new arm.

Kryten eventually discovered much to his surprise that both the Nanos and Red Dwarf were on board Starbug. The Nanos after stealing Red Dwarf shrunk it and fled through the universe until eventually they decided to hide inside Listers laundry basket!

Kryten however managed to capture them and forced the Nanos to not only give them back Red Dwarf, but build Lister a new arm.

The Nanos feeling guilty agreed to both terms, but unfortunately they ended up overcompensating. They not only restored Red Dwarf to its original size, but they also revived the Red Dwarf crew (including a new version of Rimmer.)

Unfortunately these new crew members had no memories of the accident or any knowledge of anything that had happened to the ship since. They initially arrested Lister, and Kochanski for piloting a Star Bug unauthorized and the Cat and Kryten as stowaways. Lister in an attempt to escape foolishly asked the nano version of Rimmer for help who predictably betrayed them for his own ends. However Rimmer’s attempts to help them ended up getting the crew in more hot water as Rimmer attempted to use the Captain’s personal records to blackmail them to get to the top.

Ultimately for stealing the crews private and confidential information, Rimmer, Lister, Kochanski, the Cat and Kryten were all sentenced to a year in prison on board Red Dwarf.

During their year in prison the Dwarfers would be sent on various suicide missions into deep space which they inexplicably managed to survive. At the end of their year in prison however, Red Dwarf was attacked by a microbe which slowly ate away at the ship. The crew all fled, leaving Rimmer, Lister, Kochanski, the Cat and Kryten behind (as there weren’t enough escape pods.)

Using an interdimensional machine Rimmer would travel to an alternate universe to try and find a cure, but when he returned he saw that he had been away longer than he hoped. The microbe had spread to the point where Red Dwarf was about to explode, whilst Kochanski, Lister, The Cat and Kryten had fled to another universe. Unfortunately the interdimensional machine had burnt out in the process leaving Rimmer trapped.

As all hope seemed lost for Rimmer he would be saved by the Doctor, Avon and his old hologramatic self, Ace Rimmer. The three of them landed on Red Dwarf by chance, and the Doctor was able to devise a cure for the microbe, saving the ship from destruction.

The Doctor would then repair the interdimensional machine and use it to travel to the universe the other Dwarfers had escaped too (which was a different universe to the one Rimmer had earlier visited.)

After saving the others from the perils of this universe, when they returned to N-Space they found Red Dwarf under attack from Simulants. The Simulants had encountered the resurrected nano crew of Red Dwarf when they fled the ship. Horrified to see that more humans had survived after the destruction of their empire, the Simulants slaughtered the entire nano crew, but they discovered after torturing several of them, that some humans had been left on board Red Dwarf.

The Simulants attempted to destroy Red Dwarf, but the Doctor was able to destroy the Simulant fleet. The Nano Rimmer was killed in the process, but the Doctor however would manage to download the deceased nano Rimmer’s consciousness into a spare Hologram disc effectively allowing him to live again. The 8th Doctor also upgraded the disc with a hard light drive allowing the new Hologram version of the nano Rimmer to have a body too. The Doctor however forgot to clean the memory drive of this new hologram disc which meant that the nano Rimmer now had all of the original hologram Rimmer’s memories too (as well as his own.)

This new hologram version of the nano Rimmer would stay with the Dwarfers whilst Ace Rimmer would continue on his travels with the Doctor and Avon.

Lister, Rimmer, Kochanski, Kryten and the Cat would continue to go on more adventures together, but as time went on Lister became depressed and self destructive eventually forcing her to leave. Lister however would believe that Kochanski had died and would only discover the truth many years later, which Kryten had withheld from him.

The four Dwarfers would have many more encounters with GELFS, Simulants, and Expanoids. They would also encounter God himself. At this stage in his life, God referred to himself as the Universe. He also believed that he had only created one race worthy of being considered intelligent, the Time Lords, in his entire existence (though the Dwarfers believed that he was talking about humanity.)

The Dwarfers it is believed never made their way home, but they still nevertheless went on to live long lives, with Lister dying well into his 170s. Sadly however it also not known at the current time of writing if he ever met up with Kochanski.

The Final Years of The Earth

By the year 5 million, mankind had split off into two sub races, one highly intelligent, and the other violent and degenerate (who were disparagingly referred to as the Dumblocks.)

Fry, the Professor and Bender visited the more advanced civilisation in the year 5 million and asked them to build a backwards time machine to help them get home. They agree, but unfortunately when Fry, the Professor and Bender arrive 5 years later, they discover that the Dumblocks have overthrown and destroyed the advanced city.

In the year 10 million mankind has returned to his original form, but they are locked in a brutal war with robots. Bender, Fry and the Professor arrive in this period only to leave against Benders protests when they see how hostile it is.

In the year 50 million humanity is once again a thriving civilisation, though men are rare and prized in this world. Fry, Bender and the Professor arrive in this time and discover that they have invented a backwards time machine. Unfortunately Bender, still angry at being made to leave the time that was a paradise for him when the robots were killing people, spitefully forces their time machine to travel forward again.

The time machine next travels to the year 1 billion. By this stage all life on earth is extinct. The last of humanity has fled the earth in a spaceship for Refuses 2 alongside another alien race known as the Monoids. The journey takes several hundred years, during which time the Monoids overthrow humanity and plan to exterminate them. Fortunately however the first Doctor foils this plan, and the last of humanity, and the Monoids are able to live together in peace on Refuses 2.

Back on earth meanwhile, which drifts ever closer to the sun, the Professor, Fry and Bender realize that there is no way for them to get home. No life will ever exist on earth again, and as their ship cannot travel through space they are stranded. As Fry wanders the waste lands he discovers a message left by Leela that managed to survive a billion years telling Fry that she was at her happiest with him.

Content with his lot in life, Fry tells the Professor that he is happy to journey to the end of the universe with him and Bender and the three move forward again.

Several billion years later, Refuses 2 dies just like the earth, but humanity perseveres and tries to find a new world. Yarox, the Doctors companion, and Leela and Fry’s son in law comes from this period.

Eventually humanity is able to find refuge from one of its oldest enemies, the Master. The final incarnation of the Master in an attempt to build his perfect army arrives near the end of the universe to discover who will be the most resourceful species.

He builds a machine, bigger on the inside than the outside which can protect the last survivors of the universe from its death, but only if they agree to serve him. The Master intends to turn the last survivors of this universe into his army who can conquer the next universe for him, and then survive its destruction and conquer the next and so on, and so on for all eternity.

The Thirteenth Doctor however is finally able to destroy the Master and allow the last of humanity, and other final races to live in the Masters machine which allows them to exist in peace for the rest of N-Space’s history.

At some point after this the Mesrak’s evolve in the last area of the universe capable of supporting life. The Mesrak’s explore what little of the universe they can and find no other life forms (the Masters machine is hidden from them, and beyond their reach.)

The Mesrak’s come to the conclusion that they are the last life forms left in the universe. They later discover time travel and venture back through the history of the universe and catalogue its entire history (as well as the history of other universes too.) They later send out the capsules containing the histories of these universes to various other realities (including ours) where they become the basis of classic sci fi adventure series, novels, books and films.

Eventually however even the Mesrak’s planet falls and all life in the universe dies as the N-Space crumbles away into nothing. The only survivors are Philip J Fry, Bender and the Professor who are preserved in their time machine. They witness the final atom in N-Space decay into nothing signalling the final death of N-Space.

Just then N-Space starts up again. The Professor incorrectly believes that it is a new universe, but it is in fact the same reality, simply repeating itself.

Fry, Bender and the Professor travel forward in time throughout N-Space again, but they go too far and arrive in the year 1000. The three time travellers then venture forward to the end of this version of N-Space before travelling to the correct point.

Their time travelling creates three time duplicates who take their place before they left in this version of N-Space. The time duplicates are killed when they land on top of them and are later buried by Bender.

Bender, Fry and the Professor witness the death and rebirth of N-Space.

Fry is then able to reunite with Leela and the two continue their life together as always.

True love. Fry waited over several trillion years to reunite with Leela.

In the next and final section we will be taking a look at the history of the alternate universe to N-Space, such as M-Space and see how their histories are similar, but different in key ways to N-Space’s.
