       FINNEGAN'S SQUAD: "Pravda Republik"

               BEGIN OPENING ACT:

               EXT. SPACE - EARTH FROM A DISTANCE

               From beyond Lunar Orbit we see the Earth.  A large flat space
               vessel passes our position slowly approaching the blue green
               world as the Anthem of the New Soviet plays behind a string
               of Russian communications and data exchanges.  

               The vessel is the New Soviet Carrier POLYAKOV.  

               In jump cuts we see it approach a large industrial looking
               space complex mid-way between the Earth and Moon and some 20
               degrees above the Lunar Orbit plane.  

               SUPER: HIGH EARTH ORBIT, NEW SOVIET SPACE COMPLEX 'VOLKOV' 

               The deadly looking space craft pulls into place among various
               other New Soviet wessels (intentional misspelling). 

               EXT. NEW SOVIET SPACE COMPLEX VOLKOV

               Crews stand by watching the Polyakov pull in, the mooring
               locks secure the craft and the docking hatches connect the
               Carrier to it's home port.

               INT. NEW SOVIET SPACE COMPLEX VOLKOV

               Lab coated crews carrying padded cases await clearance from
               their military escorts.  Once given they enter the Polyakov
               en masse.

               INT. NEW SOVIET CARRIER POLYAKOV

               These crews enter and spread throughout the craft.

               They move about under the watchful eye of Political Officers
               and pull components from various electrical lockers.

               From the padded cases they remove much smaller units, tiny
               components that seem to be nothing but small plastic replicas
               of Molars.  

               These units are installed at various locations throughout the
               ship, then as quickly as they came they pack up their cases
               and depart the craft.

               EXT. NEW SOVIET SPACE COMPLEX VOLKOV

               The New Soviet Carrier Polyakov withdraws from the New Soviet
               Space Complex.

               EXT. SPACE - EARTH FROM A DISTANCE

               In a reverse of the approach the Polyakov withdraws from
               Earth's micro-system, this under complete silence.

               INT. STATION 1 - TRANSIT HUB CONTROL

               A large display plots in three dimensions all the vehicles,
               stations and complexes in Earth orbit.

               We are close in on one such icon, a red representation of the
               Polyakov moving slowly out of Earth orbit.

               Two Transit Controllers are watching this.

                                   CONTROLLER ONE
                         That's the sixth one this week.

                                   CONTROLLER TWO
                         Seventh.

                                   CONTROLLER ONE
                         Really?

                                   CONTROLLER TWO
                         Yeah.  They come in noisy, they
                         leave quiet.

                                   CONTROLLER ONE
                         How are they doing that?

                                   CONTROLLER TWO
                         I don't know and I don't like it.

               CONTROLLER TWO turns away from the display instead looking
               out the row of windows that surround Transit Control.

                                   CONTROLLER TWO (cont'd) (CONT'D)
                         If the New Soviet has found a way
                         to communicate without us listening
                         in then that can only mean trouble.

               EXT. SPACE - AT STATION 1 - CONTROL TOWER

               Controller Two stares out as if seeing the passing New Soviet
               Carrier will solve this mystery.

               We jump cut out to a wider view of Station 1, the main
               transfer station moving just inside Lunar Orbit.

               We jump cut to a view that includes Station 1, the Moon and
               Station 5 gliding 60 degrees behind the Moon in Lunar orbit.
