Oliver is sitting down for lunch at school talking with his friends about a new video game that just came out. Oliver's dad just got it for him yesterday and he's telling his friends how awesome it is. One of oliver's friends looks at his lunch with disappointment. Oliver asks him and asks what's wrong. He says it's nothing his mom just packed him the same thing AGAIN for the 3rd day in a row. He then with a smirk on his face asks if Oliver will trade him lunches. Oliver agrees. The boy looks at his new lunch with excitement! He opens the bag and takes out the big sandwich and takes a HUGE bite. His face quickly turns sick. Oliver tries his new lunch at the same time and says to the kid "you're right this lunch DOES suck!" The kid spits out the sandwich he got from Oliver onto his lunch tray...."Eh...this is NASTY! it tastes like it's not cooked!" Oliver quickly responds "Hey, don't try to hate on my lunch just cuz your mom can't cook as good as my dad fool!" The kids at the table laugh and Oliver quickly swaps his lunch back.
Kianna Foster is Oliver's fairly new best friend. She's a bit of a tomboy who is trying her best to hide her crush on Oliver.
After school Oliver and Kianna get off the bus and run to Oliver's house to play the new game. When they get there Javier greets them and tries to ask Oliver how his day went, Oliver quickly blows by his dad and heads for his room to play the game. "Hi Mr. Ordonez" says Kianna. "Hey Kianna, how are you?" asks Javier. " can't talk now dad...we have aliens to kill!" says Oliver. Javier yells " what about homework?" Oliver yells back to remind him that there is no homework on fridays. Javier mutters "oh yeah" as Olivers door slams shut. "Nice to see you too" Javier mumbles.
In the room the 2 kids are getting ready to play the game. Kianna mentions that she heard one of her moms friends talking about Javier and how cute he was. Kianna then suggests that maybe it's time for Javier to start dating. Oliver says "eh, I don't know it's still kind of a sore subject around here." Kianna suggests that maybe her moms friend could just come pick Kianna up and that would give the two a chance to talk. Oliver quickly changes the subject. "Can we just play this game right now?" Kianna agrees and the two begin furiously button mashing with headsets on.
Aaron Brackman is passed out at his computer at the Titan Industies laboratory. Until a red light pulses from his screen. Aaron wakes and stumbles to put his glasses on. As he reads his eyes get big. He gets up and goes across the room to a single vile inside a machine. He removes the vile and quickly places it inside a padded stainless steel suitcase, locks it. And leaves the lab. Close up of the screen says "formula complete" then Aaron shuts the lights off.
Shakti Sinha is Sienna Springers new assistant.
"Building empires is hard" says Sienna. Standing in front of wardrobe mirrors trying to decide what to wear. Sienna holds up two outfits turns and asks Shakti which one she should go with. Shakti softly says "the white one" What? Sienna says rudely. "I can't hear you did you say the white one?" "YES" Shakti says in a louder clearer voice. "You're going to have to learn to speak up Shakti I swear...in this world if you don't speak up the world will run you over and tear you apart if you give it the chance." (changing the subject) "The white one? you're sure?" "I think the white one would make me look too...soft...do you know what I mean Shakti?" Sienna then goes on to explian that she feels that this meeting that Darrell put together is going to be yet another attempt to try and run the company. "And I have a vision" "You're the only one that understands...that's why you're my girl" Sienna says. Shakti (standing behind Sienna) rolls her eyes and says "then go with the black one" Sienna pauses..."Yup, you're right" Sienna flings the white outfit over her shoulder and hugs Shakti. Shakti clearly has an annoyed look on her face.
Back at the Ordonez house: Javier calls for Oliver for dinner. Oliver and Kianna come out of the room. Javier asks Kianna if she's going to stay of dinner. Kianna says "No my moms friend is about to pick me up" "Oh ok" says Javier. And as they sit down to eat the doorbell rings. "THAT'S MY RIDE!" says Kianna. She opens the door and her mom's friend greets her. " Hey Kianna you ready? Oh Heeey Javier, how are you hon?" - "I'm good, just been workin and trying to keep up with things around here." - "I heard that" says the woman. "Hey I was thinkin, if you weren't busy maybe you and me could go..." Javier quickly cuts her off "maybe we can talk about it later, me and Oliver are trying to eat right now but maybe we can talk tomorrow." - "Oh...of course...well I'll be around...we'll talk about it later.Bye Javier Bye Oliver"- "Bye" they both say. and the woman shuts the door. "Tomorrow huh?" says Oliver with a grin on his face. "Not if I can help it" says Javier. They both laugh. "Yeah, I'm sorry I didn't think to warn you, Kianna brought it up earlier" - "That's ok" says Javier. Oliver goes on to say that MAYBE Javier SHOULD try to find SOMEONE. Javier looks at Oliver and sighs "It's not that I want to be this guy you know?...it's just...after your mom, I don't have that part of me to give anymore." - "I'm sorry I just..." Then Javiers cell phone rings. Javier looks at his phone and the screen says "Aaron" Javier has a confused look on his face, wondering why Aaron would even be calling him, because they haven't spoke since Olivers mother passed over a year ago. "Hmm I'm gonna let that one go to voice mail" "Who is it?" asked Oliver. "Aaron" says Javier. "I'm gonna let it go to voice mail and see what this punk has to say" - "Why are you guys mad at each other again?" asks Oliver. "It's personal" says Javier as he listens to the voicemail. Javier's eyes get big. "Oliver, Get your coat on NOW! We're leaving!"
Back at Titan Industries in the board room full of people who once were Erik Springers asscoiates, now leaders of new factions of vampires:
On YOUR watch! says Darrell Carney furiously shouting and pointing at Sienna. This man (picture of Aaron projected on a big screen) has been conducting his own rogue experiments for over a year, RIGHT under YOUR nose! And NOW! Now he may have a cure! I for one would like to CONTINUE to live forever! Wouldn't all of you? Around the room everyone knods their heads. "If it wasn't for one of our other scientists who just HAPPENED to have forgotten something in the lab from earlier today, we would have never even known!" Darrell says pounding the large table. Sienna with an extremly stern look on her face shouts "WATCH YOUR TONE DARRELL!" "I think maybe you forget who you're talking to!" "I have single handedly crumbled kingdoms, I've raised our profit margins, bailed you ALL out of countless felonies, and burried my mother and father with a smile on my face...WHY? Because they were weak! And because I'm a Springer! A leaner, BETTER version of my predisessors! And if you all think for one moment that I intend on sitting in that wheelchair one more time..." - "He's already gone Sienna!" interupts Darrell with a sarcastic look on his face. Sienna stops...walks over to Darrell's chair leans in close to him and slaps him in the face! Darrell angry yet amazed just sits there and stares at her in awe. "Don't interupt me again." she says calmly. Sienna walking back to her chair goes on to say that she will find Aaron, destroy his "cure" and drag his body back for the group to feed on. A voice from the group speaks out "I will lead them!" The voice is Carl Stone's, leader of a group of vampire "Hunters" people who embraced their new vampiric selves and choose to HUNT all of thier needed blood at night. Arming themselves with the latest technology and even fang implants. "Ghastly" says Wesley Larson. Leader of a more aristocratic group of vampires. "Can't you just have him drained?" "Must we resort to such violent behavior?" "we're not beasts...we're people after all, thrown into this...predicament" "We will do what needs to be done Mr. Larson." says Sienna.
A hand knocks on a steel reinforced door. underneath a single light in the dead of night. The door opens and it's Aaron greeting Javier and Oliver. Aaron apologizes for the sudden call, and apologizes for not trying to talk to Javier since Carmen died but he had been devoting himself to a cure and he finally has it! "So you have a cure?" asks Javier. "Well just a piece it actually" "A complete cure will take more technology than I have access too" says Aaron. "So you DON'T have a cure? Then we're leaving!" they begin to walk away and Aaron grabs Javier "NO NO NO, I know where you can find the rest!" Oliver interupts "WHAT are you guys talking about?" Aaron and Javier stop...and just stare at each other. "So he doesn't know anything?" asks Aaron. "No I didn't want him to know" says Javier. "Javier, you can't hide something like THIS, FOREVER!" says Aaron. "Don't you judge me! this is all YOUR fault!" - "HEY I'm sorry about Carmen I really am Javi, but I didn't force it on you!" says Aaron. "DON'T YOU TRY TO TURN THIS AROUND ON ME!" shouts Javier! "The boy deserves to know! Javi, it effects him too!" Javier stops and realizes Aaron is right. "What is going on?" asks Oliver. And Aaron tells Oliver to have a seat and explains that something went wrong with the nano bot serum and now everyone who got the injections has to enjest blood everyday or they will die. Olivers eyes get big...Aaron grabs a close by trash can for Oliver to throw up in, and Oliver does. "So mom?" Oliver asks "Wouldn't do it" explains Aaron. "What about us?" - "I added it to our food and seasoned it the best I could to cover up the taste." says Javier. "Where did you get it?" - Javier cuts Oliver off "I don't want to talk about that right now ok?!" Oliver stares at his father in amazement. Then...throws up in the trash can once more. Aaron interjects and goes on to explain that this vile holds a puzzle piece of the cure. The rest of it is with another scientist who went into hiding. The scientist only known as "The Traveler" he gave Titan Industries the original technology for the nano bots. But he went into hiding, no one else really knows EXACTLY he went. But Aaron knew a scientist that used to work with "The Traveler" one on one they were like best friends. And Aaron went to this scientists underground lab once. Aaron is sure THAT is where the traveler is hiding because it's so off the grid. Just then Aarons phone goes off. They all stare at each other. Aaron picks up his phone and it alerts him that someone is coming. "Did you bring anyone with you Javi?" asks Aaron. "Nah" says Javier. Aaron looks at his phone showing a security camera view. There are a group of black suv's on their way. "The computer"..."I forgot to shut off the computer and wipe the drives!" says a now very nervous Aaron. "This is bad" Aaron says. "THIS IS REAL...REAL BAD!" Javier asks what Aaron is talking about. Aaron goes onto explain what he's heard about Sienna's story. And what he now knows about these powerful factions and their leaders that "might not like, a cure" "And if that is them"...Aaron says. "Then they're coming to kill me." Javier and Oliver are in shock. "Do you have any guns?" Javier quickly asks. "I have a pistol that I keep in my desk!" Aaron runs to nervously grab it. Javier grabs it from him. "Do you even know how to shoot this thing?" asks Javier. "yeah Kind of...I mean...no, not really." says Aaron. Javier tells Aaron to take Oliver and hide him while he fends them off. Aaron agrees. Just then a bullhorn turns on outside asking Aaron to unlock the door and come outside to talk. And then moments later, they open fire. Not giving Javier time to deffend them. Aaron grabs Oliver and they hide down low behind a huge metal lab station. He then hands Oliver the coordinates to where "The Traveler" is. Then he quickly injects Oliver with the vile of the cure. "Now he can use you to complete the cure...your dad will keep you safe, I know he will." Then Aaron yells to Javier that he has a way out. he kicks another work station out of the way and exposes a hatch. "TAKE OLIVER AND FIND THE TRAVELER!" "They're only looking for me, so when they kill me you'll be safe!" Javier and Aaron argue a bit, but then they agree and Javier and Oliver go thru the hatch leading them behind the warehouse. They make their way through some bushes. And through the bushes they see Aaron's car. They then make their way to Aarons car that luckily is open with the keys in it. They get in and as they drive off as the warehouse explodes.
A few hours later: showing the agents clearing the area of the explosion to hide evidence. An agent approaches the agent in charge and tells him that they haven't found Aaron's body. However, all the research has been destroyed. But the car parked in front of the warehouse was registered to a Javier Ordonez, not Aaron Brackman. "Interesting" says the lead agent. "Give me everything you've got on him." And for gods sake...FIND BRACKMAN!"
Back in the car with Javier and Oliver: "When were you going to tell me?" asks Oliver sternly. "When I thought you were ready" says Javier. "Look...I took care of it didn't I? I always made sure you were taken care of!" - "Well what about mom?" with a tear falling from his face. - Javier stops, pulls the car over and has a look of shock and hurt. Javier wipes his son's tear "I didn't have a choice...you're mom made that choice for herself what was I supposed to do? huh? pour it down her throat? SHE REFUSED" "I loved her too Oliver." "Now all I can do is take care of you." Javier hugs Oliver. Afterwards Oliver asks "How much further do we have?" - "Not much further now according to the GPS." says Javier. They pull up to a rock mound in the middle of the desert. "Is this right?" asks Oliver. "That's what the GPS says" says Javier. They look around for a bit and then Oliver suggests that maybe there's a secret lever in the rock. They search until Oliver steps on a sand covered pressure plate. That opens a door into the rock. They look at each other then slowly walk down the stairs leading to a long hallway filled with purple lighting. The whole place has a stainless steel look to it. It leads to a small laboratory. Javier and Oliver shout "Hello?" And begin to look around the lab. Oliver looks under a table and as he looks up he's face to face with "The Traveler" "WHO ARE YOU?! WHO SENT YOU?!" shouts the traveler. Oliver screams then stumbles over himself when he sees this angry and strange looking alien creature. "STAY AWAY FROM MY SON!" yells a scared Javier pointing a gun at the alien. "DO YOU THINK I'M AFFRAID OF YOU AND YOUR WEAK WEAPONS?!" shouts the traveler. Who then quickly disappears into thin air and reappears in front of Javier taking his gun from him and disassembling it into parts in the blink of an eye. The Traveler gets almost nose to nose with Javier "WHO SENT YOU?" Javier stumbles to find his words "my friend Aaron Brackman"..."He's a scientist at Titan" The Traveler cocks his head to the side "So you've come to try to kill me?!" "NO NO NO NO" shouts Oliver. "We've come for a cure!" The Travelers head turns to Oliver "What did you say?" "A CURE" says Oliver. "Our friend told us that you might be able to help cure us!" "Cure you? from what ailment?" asks the traveler. "Your nano bots" says Oliver. "Why do YOU have them?" asks the traveler. Javier speaks up and goes on to explain everything. "Ah, I see...so it appears the two of you have foolishly stumbled into a very tangled web" says the traveler. Who then sits down and asks them to have a seat as well. "You have told me your story, now allow me to tell you mine" The Traveler goes on to tell them that his real name is "Qualia" he goes on to explain that a few years ago his craft was shot out of the sky late at night. And his craft as well as him were dragged into a laboratory at Titan Industies. "I wasn't even supposed to be on this planet!...honestly, I was lost." The Traveler goes on to explain that when he was held prisoner at Titan Industries there was a very nice scientist named Steven Wright who was very kind to him. Wanted to know more about him. And they became friends. Steven explained that he had a sick mother. So Qualia shared the nano bot technology with him. But this took a turn that Qualia did not anticipate. Steven had a job to do, so after the nano bot technology was created and Steven shared it with the company. The company began to pressure Steven to learn more. But they had questions that Qualia could not answer. So thinking that Qualia was merely not sharing the technology with Steven any longer. They asked Steven to torture Qualia until he shared everything. Steven realized at that moment that they were never going to let Qualia go. So he told gave Qualia the coordinates to his hidden lab and told him to wait for him . Qualia escapes Titan Industries makes it to the lab and waits....and waits...and waits, but steven never comes. Believing him to be dead Qualia puts together a device that will control the nano bots, making them consume more. Hoping that this would kill his torturous captors and exact his revenge for killing Steven. Qualia then destroyed the device so the process could never be reversed.
Javier and Oliver look both sad and stunned. "So you see, as I said...a tangled web" "Say...if you two have been injected with my nano bots...how are you still alive?" Javier goes on to explain Aaron's discovery about injesting blood to stay alive. "Impressive" says Qualia. "I am truly sorry that you two have been dragged into this...but perhaps there is a way" Qualia disappears, then reappears in front of Oliver. "Allow me" says Qualia. Oliver extends his arm and Qualia takes some of Olivers blood. Qualia then disappears and reappears in front of an annalysis machine, decyphering the codes of Olivers DNA. A few hours later. Qualia has been hard at work in the lab. He then explains that he cannot completely cure them. This is meerly another piece, and injects Oliver with another part of the cure. "You now have 2 pieces.The cure is a puzzle of sorts"...there are others of Qualia's people that may know how to complete the cure. But to do that they were going to have to break into Titan industies and steal Qualia's ship. Which would prove to be a quite difficult task. However while he was studying Olivers DNA he made a discovery that might assist them with that task. If Javier and Oliver were to consume the blood of a creature such as Qualia, or any other alien creature for that matter. For the time it takes for the nano bots to use the blood, Javier and Oliver would be able to take on certain "ABILITIES" that would give them an advantage. The exact effects would depend on the creature. "For instance!" Qualia hands them a pouch of his dark blue blood. "I'm sure you're both feeling a bit weak, drink this!" Oliver doesn't think that he can. Javier assures him that he can. "Just close your eyes and drink" says Javier. So Oliver and Javier slowly gag all of it down. And they feel better but they don't notice anything else. "Now" says Qualia. "Focus on this!" Qualia marks an X on the wall. Javier and Oliver stare at the X..."EXCELLENT!" shouts Qualia. Javier and Oliver look down at themseleves and notice they are invisible! "If you simply focus like that using your mind instead of your eyes. you will be able to disappear at will!" says Qualia. "But remember, the effects will only last as long as it takes the nano bots to burn off the blood...which is approximately 24 hours" "So you have the next 24 hours to break into Titan, and steal my ship back...Here is the key." Qualia hands Javier the key. Javier tells Qualia that he won't know how to fly the ship. Qualia reassures him that he will because you control the ship by using your thoughts. "If you wish to go UP, you will go UP, if you wish to travel faster, you will travel faster" explains Qualia. "My planet is what is known to you humans as "Gliese 581 c", but I know it as my home, Xenos. To get to my home simply say "Xenos" and my ship will take you there." "Why don't you just come with us?" asks Oliver. "I will NEVER go back to that terrible place" says Qualia. "But when you reach my people, give them my coordinance so that they may retrieve me and I may go home" Javier and Oliver agree. They then leave the lab and are on their way to Titan Industries. But first they have to stop at their house. Javier and Oliver pull up to their house. "Go grab some dark clothes" Javier tells Oliver. Oliver agrees. When Oliver goes in his room Kianna is sitting on his bed. "Whoa, what are you doing here?" says Oliver. "I was worried about you, you've been gone for days and you didn't say anything to me...are you guys ok?" asks Kianna. Oliver tells her that everything is kind of hard to explain, but he says he will tell her everything if she pinky promises not to say anything to anyone. Kianna agrees. Oliver then disappears in front of Kianna...really freaking her out! She's about to scream and then Oliver covers her mouth with his hand. "You promised" he says. "I promised not to tell anyone, I didn't say anything about not freaking out when you disappear!" she whispers. "What happened to you?" she asks. Oliver goes on to tell her everything. While he grabs dark clothes. Kianna sits there in shock. "I need you to take care of Bruno while I'm gone" says Oliver. Kianna agrees, and Bruno looks sad. Oliver crouches down pets Bruno and tells him that he will be back before he knows it. And tells him to be good to Kianna because shes great and she will take good care of him. When Oliver gets up Kianna kisses him on the lips. Oliver stands there in shock for a moment. "In case I don't see you again for a long time" she says. "yeah...well...you WILL, I promise!" They hear Javier yelling asking Oliver if he's ready. "Almost dad!" "well..." says Oliver "well..." says Kianna. they pause for a moment. and then Oliver kisses Kianna very quickly before he runs out of the door. Kianna stands there shocked and smiling.
Javier and Oliver are parked down the street from Titan Industries. Javier tells Oliver instead of pulling up to the front gates they will walk and find their way into the lower level of the factory. They make their way through brushes and over a brick wall then stop for a moment when they see the factory to take it all in. Then they begin crouched down and running through the trees leading up to the factory They both become invisible and enter the building through an unlocked side door that Javier knew about from work. Then they make their way down a circling stairwell to the lower level. They get to a locked door and they look through the window. "2 guards" says Javier. "Here, stay invisible I have an idea" Javier then becomes visible and knocks on the door. The guards turn around and open the door. "Sorry sir this is a restricted area" the guards say. "Look I know, I know guys but I REALLY have to go to the bathroom. I work in manufacturing and the stall is out" Javier says. The guards ask to see his company ID. Javier reluctantly hands it to them as they call in his name over the radio. Javier pauses and sweats for a moment, just then Oliver appears in front of the guards! "STAY FOCUSED!" shouts Javier. Javier trips one of the guards knocking him unconcious then punches the other guard unconcious and takes his security ID. Then Javier grabs Oliver by the arm and they begin running. Siren lights begin going off. "SECURITY BREACH IN LOWER LEVEL" "SECURITY BREACH IN LOWER LEVEL" the alarm says. Javier and Oliver run down the long corridors they finally get to the door where the ship is. But it's locked. Javier gets frustrated for a moment. Just then armed guards come running down the corridor yelling. Javier grabs the guards ID swipes it and the door opens. The guards are right behind them just opening the door as Javier and Oliver make their way down the scaffolding to the door of the ship. Javier grabs the key from his pocket. Just then the guards open fire grazzing Javier in the shoulder. Oliver grabs the key from Javier's hand (Oliver is shaking) and opens the door to the ship and they make their way inside. And make their way to the controls of the ship. They hear banging on the ship from the guards. Javier places the (cerebro like) headgear on and says "XENOS" the ship begins to take off and leave the factory.
Sienna is then notified that someone has stolen the ship. She asks who and they tell her Javier Ordonez and his son Oliver. "CALL THEM" she says. Sienna calls together another meeting with the vampire leaders and tells them everything that she's just learned about what happened and speculates about what they must be doing. The leaders then ask "Well what can we do about it?" Sienna smiles and says follow me. She opens a secret door from a bookcase and they all walk down a staircase that leads to a door. She opens the door and says "we're not out of options" showing them the many spaceships that the company has reproduced from reverse engineering the travelers ship.
