Special Landing C3


INT. FLIGHT DECK -- SPECIAL LANDING (IF DALLAS WAS NOT WINGMAN)

CASEY lands, and checks his stats alone. ND TECHS crisscross back and forth. MAESTRO and STILETTO appear behind him. MAESTRO dreads telling CASEY.
MAESTRO: Case?
CASEY: (turning) Hey, MAESTRO, STILETTO. (a beat ... as he registers the looks on their faces) What's wrong?
MAESTRO: You don't know yet do you?
STILETTO: DALLAS didn't come home.
CASEY: Jesus. (weakly) We're not going to make it, are we?
STILETTO: Not if we don't stick together. This is for real.
MAESTRO: C'mon, Man.
MAESTRO exits with a shaken CASEY. STILETTO watches them go.
STILETTO: Damn.

EXT. SPACE --JUMP SEQUENCE (CG)-- (IF LOSING OR PROXIMITY)

The Midway, still under fire, jumps out of the G'Wriss System and into the next system. Caption: H'HRASS SYSTEM.

INT. FLIGHT DECK SPECIAL LANDING (IF DALLAS WAS YOUR WINGMAN)

CASEY walks quickly up the ramp, past ND TECHS, and checks his stats. As he reads them, MAESTRO and STILETTO appear behind him. CASEY slams his fist down on the console.
MAESTRO: Case, he didn't make it. That's all.
STILETTO: He's right. DALLAS' number was up. It happens.
CASEY doesn't turn to look at them. He feels like shit.
CASEY: Yeah? Not to me.
He exits. After a beat, MAESTRO follows, with STILETTO looking after them.
STILETTO: Damn.

Special Landing DL1/DL2 (if failed)


INT. FLIGHT DECK -- SPECIAL LANDING -D1OR D2 (IF FAILED)

CASEY comes up the ramp and sees a grim CAG waiting for him.
CAG: Lieutenant, I'm beginning to have serious concerns about you. Is there a problem?
CASEY: (ashamed) No, sir.
CAG: If STILETTO hadn't finished the job you were sent out to do, you might not have had a carrier to come home to. Am I making myself clear?
CASEY: Crystal, sir.
CAG: Good. Next time, Lieutenant, finish your assignment.
She EXITS. Unhappily, CASEY checks his stats and exits.

Funeral


INT. TORPEDO LAUNCH BAY -- FUNERAL (CG)

A dark room, lit by a dim red light. The door slowly opens, letting harsh sunlight in from a nearby star. This light illuminates an object ...
CAPTAIN: (V.O.) We are gathered today to pay our last respects to our honored dead ... those who have fallen to protect that which we hold dear.
The object is released and flies out

EXT. MIDWAY--SPACE (CG)

This object drifts out and reaches the light, reveal a plaque with names on it. FEATURE DALLAS' name.
CAPTAIN: (CONT.) We mourn their loss and vow they not have died in vain. They now return to the stars from which they came. May those stars serve to remind us of their sacrifice and of our duty. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Amen.
As marker revolves in space, match DISSOLVE to Ace of Spades in Sc.68

INT. REC ROOM 68

ECU, Ace of Spades flips over. REVEAL ANDERSON at bar with deck of cards. Hawk sits at the Black Widows table with Spyder, sharpening his big knife. ZERO's at a table with CASEY and a tray of shot glasses in front of them.
ZERO slides the bottle over to CASEY, who pours a shot for himself then holds it up to the light.
CASEY: We lost some good pilots today. Good people.
ZERO: Welcome to the wonderful world of armed aggression.
They drink. Spyder motions towards them with his head. Hawk notices, but keeps sharpening his knife. He's heard it all before. The door suddenly opens and Maniac comes in with a few ROOKIES. He parks at the bar.
MANIAC: So then I came around on his six and--- BANG--turned him into a splat on my canopy. Whoohoo--bug spray!
HAWK's knife sticks into the table with a loud thunk and he stands abruptly, catching Maniac's attention.
HAWK: Give it a rest, Maniac.
MANIAC: (advancing a few steps) Oh, I'd like to, Hot Shot, but if I rest for too long ... one of you might accidentally catch up with me on the kill boards. And you'd like that, wouldn't you?
CASEY: How about some good old fashioned respect for the dead ... Sir.
MANIAC: Well, well ... look who decided to speak up, my little Plebe friend . If you think I'm gonna rest on my laurels just because some cherries couldn't cut it and got themselves killed--
CASEY lunges at him and pins him against a support.
CASEY: You bastard!
The room erupts as CASEY and Maniac struggle. Hawk, ANDERSON and ZERO rush forward to separate the two.

INT. READY ROOM (PLAYS)

ECU signed picture of Maniac. We see that the picture's inscribed: ~ To my #1 fan!--Maniac. A ball suddenly slams against it. Pull back to REVEAL CASEY alone on a bench, firing a ball against the picture. Blair ENTERS and stands in the doorway. When he sees what CASEY's doing, it's all he can do to suppress a smile.
BLAIR: Can I corne in?
CASEY just keeps bouncing the ball. Blair crosses.
BLAIR: I heard about your little scuffle today.
Still nothing from CASEY.
BLAIR: Look, I've known Maniac for a long time. He's made a career out of hiding his feelings behind a lot of hot air, but his heart is basically in the right place ... You can't let him get to you.
CASEY doesn't look.
CASEY: Are you here to arrest me ... Sir?
BLAIR: Me? No. I had a word with the CAG. I think she's prepared to chalk this one up to severe stress and anxiety. But I wouldn't do it again.
BLAIR grabs the ball.
BLAIR: Don't thank me all at once ...
CASEY: I'm sorry, Sir. It's just that I thought this would all be ... different.
BLAIR: What?
CASEY: This ... everything.
BLAIR nods, understanding.
BLAIR: When I was on the flight line, flying with everyone else--taking chances, risking it all--it didn't seem to matter as much. Later, though, it became clear. We fly with death every day. That's what we do. We fight ... we struggle ... we even lose friends. That became clear to me when ... I lost someone I really cared for.
CASEY looks at him. Sees something in him.
CASEY: When was that?
BLAIR: (a small smile) Oh ... about 4,000 years ago.
BLAIR stands. Back to business.
BLAIR: What you do out there is important, CASEY. Damn important. It's important to these men, to this ship, to our home. Don't let anything stand in the way of what you need to do.
BLAIR holds out the ball. CASEY takes it.
CASEY: You sound almost ... envious?
He turns to go.
BLAIR: Maybe I am, CASEY. Maybe I am.
BLAIR exits, leaving CASEY alone with his thoughts.

Special Dismissal D1


INT. BRIEFING ROOM -- SPECIAL DISMISSAL

The pilots look up from the ICIS.
CAG: Lieutenant CASEY, this is a critical mission for us. After going over the roster, I have decided your wingman will be--
BLAIR: (OS) Me.
Every head turns to see Blair in his flight suit, standing in the doorway. He continues as he steps forward.
BLAIR: (CONT. ) I'll be CASEY's wingman.
This is a major bombshell. As the entire room reacts, Blair walks past the podium. The CAG pulls him aside.
CAG: (whispering) I'm not sure this is such a good idea.
BLAIR: (whispering) You need a seasoned pilot out there. These kids may be good ... but I'm the best you've got.
She can't argue with him. She exhales, nods in resignation and moves to the podium.
CAG: Mr. CASEY, you will recap the mission specs with your new wingman. The rest of you are dismissed. Good luck--
She shoots a glance at Blair--and almost smiles.
CAG: - -to you all ...
She exits.

INT. BRIEFING ROOM (BRIEFING ENDER)

BLAIR watches the CAG go. CASEY him and they begin to walk to the door. It remains open as the last of the other PILOTS file out, leaving them alone.
CASEY: Congratulations, Sir.
BLAIR: Don't congratulate me yet, Lieutenant. It's been years since I flew my last mission.
CASEY: Are you kidding, you'll be fine. Besides, it's not often that a guy gets to fly with a legend.
BLAIR: The problem with being a legend, CASEY, is that you're always expected to win.
CASEY: You don't have to win this time, Commodore.
BLAIR just looks at him, puzzled ... "No?"
CASEY: You just have to try to keep up!
He exits. Blair feels the slap of that one, smiles and follows. The heat is on.
