Note: The corresponding dialogue is below each picture.
Narrator: “Welcome to the Ludgonian Industrial Union's TV2 Galaxy News.”
Spiffy: “Hello Folks! I’m Spiffy Thompson.”
Hotty: “And I’m Hotty McBabe.”
In Unison: “Welcome to Galaxy News!”
Spiffy: “Today, we bring you breaking news! The crew of LIU Atlas, including its infamous host, Terrance “Doog” McDoogal, has finally been located after an exhaustive year long search.”
Spiffy: “The crew has been temporarily incarcerated until the details of their disappearance can be fully examined. Although they are slightly emaciated, the crew seems to be in good spirits, as seen in this clip.”
Doog: “Dude, Mike, come on. Blacktron could totally beat Batman in a fight.”
Mike: “In your dreams Doog. Batman is the greatest ever!”
Oldie: “Will you guys shut up! We’re going to be in serious trouble!”
Cam: “WHY! Why did they have to find us! Sob, Sob”
Spiffy: “Officials have not been very forthcoming with the details of the disappearance, but TV2 Galaxy News’ investigative unit has unearthed the crew’s harrowing tale of villainy, corruption, and lust.”
Spiffy: "Little more than a year ago, Doog and his crew were assigned to shoot an episode of LIU Atlas on a barren mining moon called Pravus. Pravus, a little known moon deep in the outer rim, orbits the gas giant Bonita. However, as Doog and his crew would soon find out, Pravus had many dark secrets.”
Spiffy: “Pravus once sported a booming gold mining operation. A huge rush of settlers once traveled to Pravus to find work and wealth. The LIU tightly controlled the gold trade, and they guarded its large mines with soldiers from the 53rd Division.”
Spiffy: “Business was great for several decades. Day after day, several tons of gold were pulled from Pravus’ crust. The workers were treated relatively well, and they were given access to food, goods, and shelter.”
Spiffy: “However, once the gold supply was exhausted, the LIU abandoned the planet. When the LIU left, the goods and services they once provided also left. The workers were left to fend for themselves. Those that could, fled the planet to find work elsewhere, but several unfortunate souls were stranded, forced to scrape together a life with the moon’s few remaining resources.”
Hotty: “The Atlas Crew landed in what they believed to be Pravus’ largest city, Minuor. Minuor was once the command center for the LIU’s gold operation. Now, Minuor was a decaying ghost town.”
Hotty: “The moon’s only officially sanctioned building was the Sherriff’s Office. Here, Sherriff Marty Bonzay was left to oversee the planet.”
Hotty: “Sherriff Bonzay was given one sub-space communicator to remain in contact with the LIU Officials, but Sherriff Bonzay soon found out that no one was monitoring his communications. Meanwhile, Pravus became a lawless war zone. Left without resources, the residents resorted to crime. Sherriff Bonzay was powerless to stop it, and he eventually became as lawless and corrupt as the residents he was supposed to protect.”
Hotty: “Sherriff Bonzay began using his communication array to contact off world criminals, smugglers, and gangsters. Bonzay made it known that Pravus was now a dead world that was no longer monitored and was now outside the influence of the LIU. Pravus became of hub of crime and villainy.”
Hotty: “The crew of Atlas had unknowingly stumbled upon one of the galaxy’s most dangerous worlds. Sherriff Bonzay was equally surprised by the arrival of crew. His secret was in danger of being exposed. Sources say that Bonzay contemplated killing the crew, but fortunately decided that bribery would work even better.”
Hotty: “Bonzay promised Doog and his crew the best time of their lives and offered them an all paid trip to Pravus’ new largest city, a place known to its residents as the City of a Million Sins. The crew, oblivious to what they discovered, quickly accepted the trip. They were whisked away in a motorized buggy.”
Spiffy: “TV2 Galaxy News was able to obtain Atlas footage of the City of a Million Sins. Viewer discretion is highly advised. The city is aptly named.”
Spiffy: “Without the watchful eye of the LIU, Sherriff Bonzay and his league of criminals were able to construct a huge city dedicated to every vice imaginable, including gambling, drugs, and sex. With all their dreams seemingly realized, the Atlas crew splurged on all the city had to offer.”
Spiffy: “The city’s population sometimes pushed the million mark, but always fluctuated. Very few of the residents lived there full time.”
Spiffy: “Despite the large number of travelers, the city managed to stay a secret. There is speculation that several high ranking officials were, in fact, aware of the city, but kept quiet in return for various “services”.
Spiffy: “Several prominent figures within the LIU could face prison or even execution for the various crimes committed under their watch, including hiding profits and unlawful use of resources. Our dedicated staff here at Galaxy News promises to get to the bottom of this dreadful occurrence.”
Spiffy: “We also promise to keep you updated on the status of the LIU Atlas crew. There are several questions regarding their involvement in the incident that must be answered before they are allowed to continue filming. Did they knowingly accept a bribe from Sherriff Bonzay? Did they assist in a cover-up? Will they also face execution? Only time will tell.”
Spiffy: “Well folks, that's it for this time. Join us next time for more Galaxy News!"
