MICROBOTS

FADE IN:

EXT. - POND WATER

Playing parameciums move out of the way of a nonobot exploration vehicle as it manuvers through pond water.

INT. - VEHICLE COCKPIT

A humanoid nanobot (MIKE) is in the front seat pushing buttons. The computer screen displays the low fuel levels.

EXT. - POND WATER

The vehicle propells toward a large mass in the distance. As the forest gets thicker, more microrganisms appear.

EXT. - FOREST

The vehicle slows down to dock. Mike quickly rolls out and waves his pistol around. The coast is clear. A smaller nanobot (PET) scouts ahead of mike. They both stop and stare into a dark cave through the forest.

INT. - FOREST

Light rays shine through the cave entrance. Mike rolls in again waving his gun around. Pet follows shining his light around and scanning things. Mike turns on his light as they continue deeper into the cave.

IN THE CLEARING

When they arrive at an open area, Mike pauses and looks around.

MIKE's P.O.V.

The clicking of a geiger counter and a HUD reveals a deposit of radioactive waste across a field.

IN THE CLEARING

Pet continues scanning things as Mike cautiously crosses the field. Mike reaches the other side and begins to collect the radioactive waste. A glass container on his pack starts glowing green. After all the waste is collected Mike detatches the green container and inspects it.

Suddenly, Pet backs up into Mike causing him to drop the container off a cliff. Pet looks scarred and hides. When Mike turns around he spots something lurking in the shadows. When he takes a step closer, the creature jumps up latches onto Mike's arm with it's tentacle. Mike drops his gun as he get's yanked in. Mike cuts off the tentacle and falls to the ground. His armor starts to dissolve from the attack. Three more try to attack, but Mike grabs the pistol and shoots them. Finally, he shoots the one that is attacking Pet. Pet is in shock.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN...

Pet is telling mike a bad joke as they continue through a path. Mike stops when he sees the container at the bottom on the glass slide. They climb down to retreive the waste container. When Mike reaches the bottom he jumps down and waives his gun around again. Mike walks over to the container and picks it up checking it's integrity. Mike turns around and looks up at a giant amoeba surrounding them. The container again drops to the ground. Mike excessively shoots his gun at the amoeba. Meanwhile, Pet gains confidence and charges directly into the amoeba. Mike looks surprised.

IN THE AMOEBA

Pet dodges up to the nucleus and sticks his tentacle into the nucleus. A bright light explades the nucleus and knocks pet out.

BACK OUTSIDE

The arms of the amoeba begin to retract and fall to the ground. The amoeba is dead. Mike looks around for pet and sees him lying on the floor in amoeba mush. Mike rushes over to see if he is ok. Pet's lights are off and he is not moving. Suddenly, Pet's light's turn on and he holds up the glowing green waste container. Mike is pleased.

BACK AT THE VEHICLE

Pet slides the container into the fuel hole inside the ship. The fuel guages on the computer screen fill up and pet turns on some music.

EXT. - VEHICLE

The ship undocks and propells into the light.
