Mondas Rising : Weaponised Astrology

Mondas : Gaia's Evil Twin
Or Nemesis
POLLY : 
What's happened to you, Doctor? 

DOCTOR : 
Oh, I'm not sure, my dear. 
Comes from an outside influence. 
Unless this old body of mine is wearing a bit thin....



The existence of the Mars Effect scientifically verifies the most fundamental principle of astrology: 
That there is a connection between a person's character and the planetary positions at the time and location of birth. 

Here, too, reasonable people can come to no other conclusion -- especially after they examine the whole of the nearly 40 years of Gauquelin research. 

Astrologers, of course, have described just such a connection all along.

 



DOCTOR: 

Your planet is finished. 
It will disintegrate. 
We know why you came here, so why not stay and live with us in peace? 

REGOS KRANG: 

We will confer. 
Keep your places. 
Anyone who moves will be killed instantly. 

BARCLAY: 

Can we trust them? 

BEN: 

No, of course we can't. 

DOCTOR: 

We have no chance. We must play for time. Be quiet. 
Well, sir, what have you decided? 

REGOS KRANG: 

We cannot talk while that missile is aimed at Mondas. 
It must be disarmed first. 

DOCTOR: 

A moment, please. 
Are you able to disarm this rocket? 

BARCLAY: 

Well, yes, but, er 

DOCTOR: 

It will give us the time we need. 

BEN: 

The time for Mondas to burn itself out, you mean?  
REGOS KRANG: 
Listen to me.
 This close proximity of our two planets means that one has to be eliminated for the safety of the other. 

The one to be destroyed will be Earth. 

We cannot allow Mondas to burn up. 

If you help, we will take you all back to Mondas with us. 
There you will be safe. 

BEN: 
Yeah? For how long? 

DYSON: 
It could be our only chance. 

BEN: 
The answer is no! We'll just sit tight here until Mondas breaks up. 

Now then, you'd better release the Doctor and Polly and send them down here. 

You're gonna need our help when Mondas is gone.

KRANG: 

Mondas will not burn up. 

Take the old man out to the spacecraft. 


BEN: 

Look, the Doctor said that it's not only Earth that's in danger, but that Mondas itself is in far greater danger. 
Otherwise, why have they bothered coming here? 

CUTLER: 

And just how did he figure that out? 
It's draining energy from the Earth, isn't it? 

BEN: 

Yes, but he said eventually it would absorb too much energy and burn itself out. 

Well, shrivel up to nothing. 

So all we've got to do is wait! 




BEN: 
Right, Doctor. While they take him out, we'll make a break for it! 

DOCTOR: 
Hmm? 

BEN: 
We can get back to the TARDIS! 

DOCTOR: 
Well how can we do that, boy? 

BEN: 
Well, we can make a break for it down that corridor, to the trapdoor and then bolt it from behind. 

DOCTOR: 
Nonsense, nonsense, they'll burn us down in a flash. 


Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. 

I'm an Agent of Chaos. 

Oh, and you know the thing about chaos...? 

It's Fair.

reiki to the rescue 




BARCLAY: 
Take visual checks on Mars to establish position. Report back. 


WILLIAMS [OC]: 
Will do, out. 


[Zeus 4]


WILLIAMS: 
Did you get that, Dan? 


SCHULTZ: 
Yeah. 

WILLIAMS: 
Okay, go ahead. Should be about 4-2-0. 

(Checking through the telescope.) 

SCHULTZ: 
No. It's 4-3-2. 

WILLIAMS: 
It can't be. Try again. 

SCHULTZ: 
I am. 

WILLIAMS: 
Come on, shake it up. We'll be back in sunrise in a bit. 

SCHULTZ: 
Cut it out, Glyn. 

WILLIAMS: 

Did you read conversation?

BARCLAY [OC]: 

Yes. We're getting a Mars fix too. Call back. 

SCHULTZ: 

Hey, Glyn? 

WILLIAMS: 

Yeah? 

SCHULTZ: 

Well, er, take it easy but, er 

WILLIAMS: 

Come on, come on, what is it? 

SCHULTZ: 

It wasn't Mars I had.

WILLIAMS: 

Well that explains it, doesn't it. Come on now, Dan, try again. 

SCHULTZ: 

No, listen, Glyn, there's something else out there. 

WILLIAMS: 

What do you mean? 

SCHULTZ: 

There's another planet out there! 

WILLIAMS: 

Another planet? 

SCHULTZ: 

Yeah. 

WILLIAMS: 

Yeah, you're right. 
There is something. 
I can't see properly but it reads as if it was in orbit between Mars and Venus.



SCHULTZ: 

Yeah, that's it. 

Funny how I can't put me finger on it but it looks kinda familiar.



WILLIAMS: 

Yeah. 



SCHULTZ: 
Came the dawn. 

WILLIAMS: 
Yeah. Well, I guess we've had enough Earth observations for a bit. 
Hello Snowcap. Hello Snowcap. 
We're now in dawn over San Francisco. 
Can you get the subject from where you are? 

BARCLAY [OC]: 
Snowcap to Zeus 4. 
You are very faint. 
Put up your power output please. 

WILLIAMS: 
It is up. 

BARCLAY [OC]: 
Reading you strength 3. Come in, please. 

WILLIAMS: 
Repeat, can you get the subject on your retina scope? 

BARCLAY [OC]: 
Can do. 

WILLIAMS: 
Hey. Hey, Dan. That's odd. 

SCHULTZ: 
Yeah? 

WILLIAMS: 
Fuel cells are showing a power loss. 






[Tracking room]
BARCLAY: (into microphone) 
May I have your attention, everybody. 
This is very important, so please listen carefully. 
Final orbit commencing from base reference one is four minutes, ten seconds [410] from now. 
Now, we've got a very difficult job on our hands and I want everybody to be on their toes all the time. 
If the capsule power falls too low I shall take over re-entry from here, and for that I want the entire team behind me. 
Now, base reference one commencing 

[Observation area]
BARCLAY [OC]: 

Now. 

DOCTOR: 

Yes, they must bring them down. 

BEN: 

But why, Doctor? 

DOCTOR: 

Because they can't last another orbit. 

[Tracking room]
(The Doctor storms in, then stops as he spots three pairs of silver boots entering from outside. He shakes the General's shoulder.



DOCTOR: 

It's imperative that I talk to you, General. 



CUTLER: 

Get away, old man. Can't you see 



DOCTOR: (to Barclay.) 

You, will you pay attention? Will you?! 



(Cutler sees the three Cybermen and mistakes them for soldiers.



CUTLER: 

Get this man back into the Observation room. Sergeant, that was an order! Take that man back to the obs 


(The Cyberman takes off his parka. Polly screams. The other two Cybermen reveal themselves.



CUTLER: 

Back to your places. 



(Suddenly, the soldier who had been guarding the Doctor, Ben and Polly rushes towards the Cyberman with his gun raised. The Cyberman at the top of the landing aims a light device at him. Smoke comes from the guard's body, and he falls backwards to the floor.


[Observation room]
POLLY: 
Oh. no! 



BEN: 

Come back, Polly. They'll blow your head off! 



DOCTOR: 

Hey! 

[Tracking room]
CUTLER: 
Now look, I don't know who you are or what you are, but we've got two men in space. If we don't act now we won't get them back alive. 



(The Cyberman opens its mouth but does not move any lips as it speaks in a strange sing-song tone that puts emphasis in all the wrong places.) 



KRAIL: 

They will not return. 



CUTLER: 

Why not? 



KRAIL: 

It is unimportant now. 



CUTLER: 

But We must get them back! When 



KRAIL: 

There is really no point. They could never reach Earth now. 



POLLY [OC]: 

But don't you care? 



KRAIL: 

Care? No, why should I care? 

[Observation room]
POLLY: 
Because they're people and they're going to die! 

[Tracking room]
KRAIL: 
I do not understand you. There are people dying all over your world yet you do not care about them. 



(Polly rushes in, with the Doctor and Ben behind her.



POLLY: 

Yes, but we could avoid their deaths. 



KRAIL: 

You will be wondering what has happened. Your astronomers must have just discovered a new planet. Is that not so? 



BARCLAY: 

Yes, that's right. 



KRAIL: 

That is where we come from. It is called Mondas. 



BEN: 

Mondas? 


BARCLAY: 

Mondas? But isn't that one of the ancient names of Earth? 


KRAIL: 

Yes. Aeons ago the planets were twins, then we drifted away from you on a journey to the edge of space. Now we have returned. 



BEN: 

You were right, Doctor. 



BARCLAY: 

But who or what are you? 



KRAIL: 

We are called Cybermen. 



BARCLAY: 

Cybermen? 



KRAIL: 

Yes, Cybermen. We were exactly like you once but our cybernetic scientists realised that our race was getting weak. 



BARCLAY: 

Weak? How? 



KRAIL: 

Our life span was getting shorter, so our scientists and doctors devised spare parts for our bodies until we could be almost completely replaced. 



POLLY: 

But that means you're not like us. You're robots! 



KRAIL: 

Our brains are just like yours except that certain weaknesses have been removed. 



BARCLAY: 

Weaknesses? What weaknesses? 



KRAIL: 

You call them emotions, do you not? 



POLLY: 

But that's terrible. You, you mean you wouldn't care about someone in pain? 



KRAIL: 

There would be no need. We do not feel pain. 



POLLY: 

But we do!
