“We still have Cruise Elroy to deal with.”
Page 6
Panel 1
1.
Pac-Man remembers that, and looks unsurely at Kevin. Kevin seems nonchalant, as a god should.

“’Sigh’, no, I’m sorry. Um, who are these people?”
Panel 2
2.
Lana looks unimpressed with Kevin.
Lana
“I’m Lana. These are my allies: Simon Belmont, Mega Man, Pit, and NES. We’re currently on the run, and that’s really all you need to know right now.”

Page 14
Panel 1
1.
Simon has come back out. Lana looks irritated, while Kevin looks smug.

“Princess, the patient is in the Medical Bay. We should go.”

“So that’s our story, what’s yours?”
Panel 3
4.

Lana
“Alright. You guys know about the Paichnidian Confederation, right? Well, I’m its Princess.”
Panel 4
5.
Kevin interrupts to ask a question.
Kevin
“Princess? Wouldn’t a society like this one have outgrown monarchies?”
Panel 5
6.
NES answers Kevin’s question.
NES
“Not really. I mean, the royal family is just there to give a form of unity to the planets of the Confederation. The planets all have their own local governments, and the Treaty of Westmaria clearly says that they can resign from the Confederation if the monarchy becomes tyrannical.”
Panel 6
7.
Kevin is satisfied.
Kevin
“Oh, okay.”
Panel 7

“Anyways…”
Page 15
Panel 1
1.
Ah, the face-melty-story-panel! This one has Lana’s face “melting” into a picture of a portal in space with Mother Brain and the Space Pirates coming out from it.
Lana
“A few months ago, for no known reason at all, a portal opened up in the middle of space, and a particularly nasty being known as Mother Brain came out from it, with her horde of Space Pirates. We don’t know exactly where they came from, but we mostly think it was from another galaxy.”
Panel 2
2.
Show the Space Pirates fighting Galaga fighters, Arwings, and Wolfens.
3.
Text-Box: “Anyways, regardless of their origins, the Space Pirates had one goal in mind: to conquer. They started waging war against the cosmic forces of the Confederation.”
Panel 3
4.
Show Ridley smiling viciously atop a giant castle, with violence everywhere around him.
5.
Text-Box: “Eventually, they won, and took over the Royal Family.”
Panel 4
6.
Show Space Pirates taking Dr. Light, the King (I don’t really care how you draw him, just make him stand out from the other hostages), and other people for prisoner.
7.
Text-Box: “They took my father, the King, Dr. Light, our head scientist, and several other prominent heads for prisoner, and almost got me as well.”
Page 16

Show Simon, Mega Man, Pit, and NES, all in poses.
2.
Text-Box(s): “With the help of my guard, Simon Belmont, and Mega Man, who’s a creation of Dr. Light’s, I managed to escape to the Royal Ship, the Galaxian, which we’re on now. When we flew away, we almost got shot down, but then Pit appeared. He destroyed the enemy ships, and then said that Heaven had instructed him to protect me.”
Panel 2
3.
Back to reality, with Lana still telling her story.
Lana
“We don’t really have a game plan yet as to how to rescue the rest of the Royal Family, we’re currently just trying to stay alive, of course, if you’re looking for answers about your past, we’ll be happy to help.”
Panel 3
4.
Kevin and Pac-Man look relieved to be on solid ground at last.
Kevin
“Thank you. Hey, can we see Max? We want to know if he’s okay.”

5.
Lana smiles and motions to Pit and Mega Man.
Lana
“Of course, Pit, Mega Man, would you please take Kevin and Pac-Man to the Medical Bay?”
Panel 5
6.
As expected, Pit looks like this is all a chore, while Mega Man looks shy and eager to please.
Pit
“Whatever.”
Mega Man
“Sure thing.”
Page 17
Panel 1
1.
Lana thanks both of them as the four boys leave.
Lana
“Thank you.”
Panel 2
2.
Simon looks down at Lana.
Simon
“Do you trust them?”
Lana
“Yes. It may sound crazy, but it’s actually too unbelievable not to believe.”
Panel 3
3.
NES butts in. Lana nonchalantly makes another really big choice.
NES
“Yeah, hey sorry Arcadia didn’t work out, Princess. Luckily I have a back-up plan.”
Lana
“Well wherever it is you can save it for a while. We’re going somewhere else. Besides, since when did you have a back-up plan?”
Panel 4
4.
NES again freaks, and Lana again ignores him.
NES
“WHAT?!? Look, Princess, this isn’t a field trip. Where are you planning to go?”
Lana
“Don’t worry; we’re not going to a Confederation planet. This place hasn’t even developed space travel yet.”
Panel 5
5.
NES and Lana sarcastically bicker.
NES
“Oh well gee, why are we going there then?”
Lana
“I promised Kevin I’d find some answers. Normally I’d consult Dr. Light, but since he’s out of the picture, we’re going to the next smartest man I know.”
Panel 6
6.
Simon looks down at Lana, a little worried, but ever-stoic. Lana smiles at him understandingly.
Simon
“If we’re going where I think we’re going, then you know that I won’t be able to join you.”
Lana
“I know, and I won’t ask you to do so.”
Page 18
Panel 1
1.
NES doesn’t know what this place is, and he hates not knowing anything.
NES
“Okay, I’ll bite, where are we going?”
Panel 2
2.
Lana enjoys toying with NES, and even Simon smiles a little bit.
Lana
“Well NES, it’s really far away. On a more important note, why don’t you tell me about your ‘back-up plan’?”
Panel 3
3.
NES begrudgingly spills the beans.
NES
“’Sigh’, fine. The possibility of a royal coup was always there, so there were always contingency plans in store for such an occasion.”
Panel 4
4.
Lana interrupts to ask a question.
Lana
“Contingency plans? You mean like going to Arcadia?”
Panel 5
5.
NES answers the question.
NES
“That was the main one, but there were others. I myself helped discover a planet that would be completely impenetrable from enemy forces. Anyways, there were a bunch of planets scattered throughout the galaxy with shelter, food, and other things that would be needed in case of a government take-over. Places where any surviving royal members could go to stay low and wait for a proper time to make a come-back.”
Page 19
Panel 1
1.
Lana is taking all of this in.
Lana
“So you’re ‘back-up plan’ was another planet where we could go to hide from Mother Brain?”
Panel 2
2.
NES confirms Lana’s guess.
NES
“Yes. Specifically this was the planet I discovered with some random scientist. Now could you please tell me where we’re actually going?”
Panel 3
3.
Lana has another question.
Lana
“Wait, hold on. Where is this back-up plan?
Panel 4
4.
NES has become aggravated.
NES
“Does it matter!?! Tell me where we’re going!!!”
Panel 5
5.
Lana rolls her eyes.
Lana
“Fine, fine, honestly, you’re like a child.”
NES
“Thank you. Now would you please reveal this mysterious planet?”
Panel 6
6.
Lana’s fingers press some buttons on the key-pad.
