LB: Untold Tales of the Animated SILVER SURFER TV Series Ep. 16 Script

by Larry Brody

Over the past two weeks I’ve posted the scripts for Season 2 Episode 1 and Episode 2 of the FoxKids Network The Silver Surfer animated series for those who wondered what all of us involved in the show back in 1998 intended to come if we hadn’t been cancelled.

Today it’s the turn of Season 2 Episode 3, Soul Hunter: Part Two.  This one’s a “Rev. Final Draft,” which means that everyone involved in the prep for Season 2 was satisfied that it was ready to shoot.

PREVIOUS SEASON TWO EPISODES:

THE END OF ETERNITY: PART TWO

SOUL HUNTER: PART ONE

TEASER

FADE IN:

EXT. DEEP SPACE – THE WATCHER

Outlined against the blackness of space.

THE WATCHER
I am the Watcher…

As we HEAR the name, the Watcher RIPPLES out of existence,
and in his place we SEE the SILVER SURFER and his board
WARPING INTO space above the planet Zenn-La.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
Since his creation, often has the
destiny of the Silver Surfer
seemed inextricably linked to my
own…

ANOTHER ANGLE

As the Surfer soars joyfully toward Zenn-La — and is sent
reeling back by a RAINBOW OF ENERGY from an INVISIBLE BARRIER
in space before it.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
At no time has that conjunction
been more evident than when the
former Norrin Radd finally located
his long-sought homeworld…

The Surfer FIRES A SERIES OF COSMIC BOLTS at the barrier —
and they EXPLODE against it and then CAROM backward at him,
sending the Surfer CRASHING into an asteroid belt.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
(continuing)
And found that it had been placed
in another dimension of time and
space, inaccessible to him…

EXT. THE UNIVERSAL LIBRARY – DAY

SEEING the various VIRALS oozing along their way.

2.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
Only with the aid of the Virals,
devolved remnants of my own once
noble race, could the Silver
Surfer pierce the barrier that
kept him from Zenn-La…

Suddenly, MORG and his SARQ troops come hurtling down,
destroying the landscape with their FIREBALLS AND WHIRLING
LIGHTNING!

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
(continuing)
They, however, were under
attack — by the Sarq, space-
faring barbarians dedicated to the
destruction of all knowledge…!

EXT. SPACE ABOVE THE UNIVERSAL LIBRARY

Where the Surfer is trapped in the Sarq ENERGY NET, its LINES
OF FORCE STRETCHING DOWN to the Library Planet, while THIRAN
leads them in a ceremony of destruction.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
Entrapped, the Silver Surfer
seemed helpless to prevent the
Sarq from using his own power to
annihilate the Universal Library…

EXT. THE UNIVERSAL LIBRARY – DAY

Where the planet is being BLASTED BY THE LINES OF FORCE. The
Virals — united as one — SEND OUT A FORCE OF THEIR OWN.

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
Until he and the Virals joined
forces…

ANOTHER ANGLE

As the LINES OF FORCE BACKFIRE through the Surfer, BLASTING
the Sarq and forcing them to flee!

THE WATCHER (V.O.)
Their combined energies scattering
the Sarq to the universe’s very
ends…!
