1960, the Near Future
SAMPLE DIALOGUE

                                    RULA
I must apologize for Colonel Hapshut. She is a soldier and more accustomed to
battle than to love.

                                     STEVE
And your highness?

                                   RULA
A queen must be adept at every game.

                                     STEVE
I see.

                                  RULA
And which do you play, Captain? The truth. Why are you here?

                                      STEVE
I told you, we crashed here while searching for a deadly ray which is terrorizing
Earth.

                                   RULA
Tell me more of this “ray”? Where does it come from?

                                    STEVE
We don’t know. All we’re sure of is that it must be stopped at any cost.

                                    RULA
But have you considered what that price might be?

                                    STEVE
Anything to save America, the Earth...

                                      RULA
...and “the girl you left behind?” Did you forget that?

                                     STEVE
I never had much time for women.

                                       RULA
Perhaps my time is your time, commander? Be a dear and pour some wine. It’s
the finest on our planet, made from the nectar of the rare Amora blossoms found
only in my private garden. It is said to arouse those feelings locked in the
innermost chambers of one’s heart.
                                       STEVE
               (Pouring the wine)
A love potion, your majesty?

                                        RULA
A gesture of friendship...Steve...if I may call you that.

                                       STEVE
If you wish.

                                       RULA
I do. And you must call me Rula.

                                       STEVE
“Rula.”

                                       RULA
Yes, say it again. Again and again.

                                       STEVE
“Rula.” “Rula, Rula.”

                                       RULA
Yes!

                                       STEVE
I feel like I’m back at Yale.

                                       RULA
And now drink.
             (He does.)
Good?

                                       STEVE
Sweet as honey...

                                       RULA
…On a woman’s lips?

                                       STEVE
Yes, but...I feel so strange. Light-headed.
                (Beginning to feel the drug)
Like I have no will of my own.
                                     RULA
I have enough for us both, my love. From the first moment I gazed into your
deep brown eyes, I saw a man of strength, different from the rest. Someone
worthy to stand beside a great queen such as I. My darling, I have such plans.
We shall rule the galaxy. You and I and the interspace modulator...

                                      STEVE
              (Increasingly groggy)
“Interspace modulator?”

                                     RULA
Yes, a machine capable of crossing thousands of miles of space and re-arranging
matter. With it I can destroy anything I choose in the solar system: ships, cities,
people. And after I subdue them, I can transport my armies there to make the
populus do my bidding.

                                     STEVE
              (Trying to maintain his wits)
Then I was right. You are the cause of the havoc back home.

                                     RULA
Yes. It is I. And there’s nothing you can do about it. Except save yourself.

                                  STEVE
Save myself by losing my country? What kind of a man do you think I am?

                                      RULA
A fool unless you join me.

                                    STEVE
And what about the others...Bucky and Doc?

                                  RULA
They are expendable. But enough questions. Tonight is for us.

                                      STEVE
       (Finally under her spell)
Yes.

                                      RULA
Come and kiss me.

                                      STEVE
As you wish, darling.
                (He removes her veil and starts to kiss her, but just as their lip
                touch, he backs away in horror.)

                                       STEVE
Ahh! My god! No! How terrible!

                (RULA turns around showing the audience her face. Her lips are
                deformed and vibrant blue.)

                                        RULA
So you are like all the rest. I should have known. All you men are the same.
None of you can be trusted. You did this to me, men like you.

                                       STEVE
Your lips. They’re cold as ice.

                                      RULA
“Ice” indeed, captain. They were once warm and kind like those a loving wife.
But men changed that. After being left alone for years during the great war with
Uranus, I received notice that my husband had been sent home. I was overjoyed.
Admiral Marcel told me he was there already. When I arrived, I found him
asleep. I leaned over to kiss him and...and...

                                       STEVE
Yes?

                                     RULA
As our lips touched, I screamed in agony. He had been atomically frozen!

                                       STEVE
What?

                                       RULA
Yes, to save his life he had been refrigerated in an Arcticroptic generator. A
single second’s contact with him permanently reduced my lips to sub-zero
temperature!

                                       STEVE
But...

                                     RULA
He died. But I live. With only this as a tribute of my devotion to man.

                                       STEVE
How terrible!
                                RULA
What man could love me now? You, commander?

                  (He tries to kiss her again, but cannot.)

                                         STEVE
I’m sorry, I...

                                      RULA
What? No kiss for Miss Birds-eye? Jack Frost got your tongue? Or do I only
have “ice” for you? I thought as much. Leave me. Go back to your friends. The
drink’s effect shall wear off and you shall remember nothing. Guards! Remove
him!

                  (LAHNA and MARLA enter and drag STEVE out.)

                                         STEVE
               (Still groggy)
I’m sorry, your highness.

                                  RULA
Not as much as you will be, commander. You and your men!
