Olympics where held in 1980, the same year this show aired?
Next interview is with Matt Brine, gold medal in the horizontal [something]...Is he wearing a saran wrap T-shirt? That's when Holl Headedson from Simpian bombs the interview and showing off how cocky he is. "I'm the star here." He is a man known throughout the universe for winning two gold and one silver medal last year. UBC Sports however is not amused and cuts the interview short. Next Olympian (played by Carlos Palomino) is a Sonic Boxer, jumping rope. No, wait, the interviewer doesn't know what category the Olympian is competing in. A runner? Tumbler? Gymnast? No. The Olympian says he is in Gravity Pull (weight lifting), but is jumping rope because weights are heavy. Well that concludes the practice sessions for the 2492 Olympic Games. All athletes are to report to their sleep chambers. Sounds so comfortable. It actually gives me the feeling that these athletes are not volunteers, but perhaps slaves to the games.
Two lover's, Lara and Jorex, embrace each other after being apart for so long. Lara has heard so many terrible things happening on Loziria that she was afraid she would never see Lorex again. Lorex agree's to meet Lara again tomorrow after morning practice.
caucus on Friday. Oh well, Buck goes with Twiki and Dr. Theo (who is representing the Directorate for the games) instead.
Buck heads to the games in is Starfighter.
"Heat Five of the 40-kilometer Steeple Chase,
Satrap from Loziria contacted Alaric with orders to ensure the victory of Jorex Leet, no matter what the cost. Lara introduces herself to Buck. She watched him present the Olympic flag and instantly felt he was someone she could trust. Lara suggests to Buck that he join her in her Astrosled. Twiki walks off to and pumps into an Olympian played by Elgin Baylor. You can see Twiki braces himself before he pumps into him, so you know Felix was getting ready to knock into Elgin. Elgin Baylor picks Twiki up and sets him aside when another athlete comes to his 'rescue'. I assume this shot is in the show to show case two cameo's of guest star Olympians.
Lara escorts Buck to her Astrosled, asks him to step on the Power Nacelle to get in. They quickly launch and are flying through space along the Astroslolum course. I got to say that Lara is very flirtatious with Buck.
Twiki is trying to disable the disharmonizer modification that will blow Jorex up, but to no avail. Their new plan is make a run for it. They hope to get Jorex out of range of the disharmonizer's frequency before Alaric finds him missing. Why not just replicate the device and replace Alaric's with one that doesn't work? He wouldn't know it was missing and wouldn't have a lethal weapon back in his hands. Seems like a much better solution that giving the devise back to him and hoping that he doesn't use it before they can get Jorex out through the Stargate. Wilma takes the remote back to Alaric. She should be back in a half hour.
level. He passes the "Gamma Suite", the "Delta Suite" and finally finds the "Omega Suite". The door isn't locked, which is always a good indication that someone is being held there against their will. Buck enters anyways and finds the room empty. Or is it? There is another door in the room that has energy beams before the door acting as restraining bars. Looks promising. Hey, what do you know, Lara is behind the door. I hope that this prison like cell in the Omega suite is an add on by Alaric and not something that comes standard in the complexes hotel rooms. Lara asks Buck how he found her. Uh, well he found a plant in her room that is exclusive to Lorzira, and the only Lorzirian that Buck knows that would want to kidnap Lara is Alaric, so he checked his room first as it seemed like the most logical place to start. Turns out that his assumption paid off. It's not exactly rocket science here Lara. Just connecting the obvious dots. Buck pushes the OFF button for the energy bars on the panel (that is Lara's reach if she wanted to try to escape all on her own). Oops, their escape is cut short when Karl shows up and locks them in the room. He throws into the room a genuine Lozirian Ice Cloud. The little thing explodes and begins to reduce the temperature in the room. Karl says that it will become the temperature of deep space in a matter of minutes. Space is around -455 degree's Fahrenheit, so, if the room was +74 degree's, the room would have to drop 52.9 degrees a minute to reach deep space temperature in 10 minutes. However they would be freeze to death in about three to four minutes. Well with some quick reflection technology, Buck is able to deflect the energy bar around the hall and pack to the control panel, destroying it. They are free once more.
"The gymnasts from Remas 1 are about to begin their floor exercises. The 15-kilometer run is about to begin in the South..." Twiki informs Jorex about their plans. Alaric watches Jorex's last leap on the stadium floor. Jorex wins and is the Vertical Leap Intergalactic Champion.
"Results of the 10-Kilometer run are in. Bronze medal is awarded to Zolton from Atheria. The Silver Medal is awarded to Deana Port from Remus 2. The Gold Medal is awarded to Lex Nash from Iceicon 3." Lara and Jorex prepare to launch the Astrosled out Chute "B". If the distance between sea level and space is similar to Earths, the
Well Jorex was able to acquire his Gold medal despite defecting to Earth. Wilma tells Buck that a man from UBC (the Holovid Network) wanted him to cover the Equinox Exercises in New Phoenix. Luckily she declined on Buck's behalf. Only one Olympiad is enough for one life time. Everyone laughs.
Disharmonizer: A simple transmitting device that utilizes low-frequency zeta waves to communicate to a microscopic molecular chip implanted in an Alpha Lorzirian's brain. The speed of the waves is approximately five times (4.84 to be more exact) the speed of sound or about 1,660 meters per second (5,446 feet). However, the zeta waves are unable to travel through Stargate configurations, limiting its range.
Character Facts learned in this episodeJorex Leet: Alpha slave on Lorzira. Takes orders from Alaric. He is the Vertical Leap Gold medal champion. Lozirian Team members are not allowed to speak to outworlders. Not allowed to marry an alien. The Satrap needs Jorex's gold medal to use in Loziria's political struggles. Implanted with a microscopic molecular disharmonizer in his brain. His disharmonizer has been modified to destroy the sub-cellular atomic bonds in his brain, making him a human bomb with a half kilometer radius (1,640 feet).
Lara Tizian: Astrosled Champion. She met Jorex at the Olympiad on Ramu.Wants to defect with Jarex to Earth.
Alaric: Deputy Minister. Has a crippling weakness for women of all persuasions. Uses exos (Lorzirian steroid used to build physical development) to win them and keeps them under his spell.
Eric Zogan: Expatriate that defected to the Directorate last year. Athlete.
