"My thanks, Herr Doctor Gleichstein." Said Xyl, giving the slumbering figure a mock salute.

"Are you ready?" Asked Scrooby. Gary looked round, licked his lips nervously and nodded. Jimmy was behind his control desk, in control of everything. The time jump platform disappeared and was replaced with an inside view of a very shabby lounge with really tacky wallpaper. No, wait – those were smears and stains. Eeuw.

Xyl was there, sitting with his back to them as they materialized silently a few feet behind him. Scrooby had seen the part that came after this on the Projector. Xyl was about to start the machine and it would begin a chain reaction that would go way out of control and destroy pretty much everything. He remembered the two little moons as they were scattered by the blast, looking like balls on a pool table looking for the corner pocket. Grim faced, he produced his Life Ender and lunged. He struck empty air. Suddenly Xyl was right beside him and delivered a powerful kick that blasted him into a wall. Gary stood in a knife fighting position, holding his Life Ender threateningly, albeit with a new respect for the device. Xyl smiled, while Scrooby struggled back to his feet, looking for his weapon.

This guy was wiping the floor with them! He was going to destroy Deanna, and the universe, and the TSA – and it would take so many UTE's to stop him or undo it he would probably still be away on assignment someday when the needle hit the stop at the end of the track.

"Enough of this bullshit." He growled angrily. Brushing them aside, he strode determinedly to Jimmy's console and sat down behind it. There was only one realistic option left, he felt. 'You're never going to work in this town again.' He growled.

"What're you going to do, J?" Jimmy asked, as they gathered round to see.

Johnathan Scrooby operated the console and zoomed in. The two Xyl's were giving Gary a pounding. He wasn't dead yet, but he would be soon.

"Right." He said firmly. "Let's see you get out of this."
