1. JUNGLE

(The Doctor returns from his vantage point of the Dalek city, towards the TARDIS. Along the way, he notices a small object on the jungle floor. He picks it up; it is the tape recorder left behind by Marc Cory months before. He pockets the recorder and continues through the jungle.)


2. TARDIS - EXTERIOR

(As the Doctor returns to the TARDIS, he sees the ship's door is open. He watches from the undergrowth as a Dalek emerges from around the TARDIS. The Doctor looks horrified.)

(The Dalek pauses.)


3.  RECEPTION AREA

(A room in the Dalek city.  Zephon, one of the delegates, greets Mavic Chen.)

(They leave.  Two Daleks emerge from the shadows.)


4.  JUNGLE

(Katarina watches as Steven begins to recover.)

(The Doctor appears.)

(He looks at Steven.)


5.  JUNGLE

(A Dalek patrol lines up in the jungle.)

(The Daleks all have torches protruding from their sucker sticks.  They light the torches and start moving through the jungle, setting light to trees and undergrowth as they go.)


6.  JUNGLE

(Nearby, the Doctor is helping a still weakened Steven to walk.)

(Bret Vyon appears from the jungle.)

(He points his blaster at the Doctor.)


7.  JUNGLE

(The Daleks continue to move through the jungle, burning everything in their path as they go.)


8.  JUNGLE

(As they argue, the Doctor catches glimpse of smoke coming from nearby in the jungle.  He looks, and sees a large area of jungle burning nearby.)

(Vyon realises with surprise which direction the Doctor is pointing out.)


9.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY

(Chen and Zephon stand just outside the walls of the city, watching the blazing jungle.)

(Mavic Chen departs, leaving Zephon alone.  Nearby, out of earshot, two Daleks emerge from the shadows.)


10.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY

(The Doctor, Steven, Katarina and Vyon arrive at the edge of the jungle.  The Dalek city is ahead of them; next to it, a landing pad is home to a number of ships of various designs.  The city and spacecraft make a strange contrast to the primitive jungle.)

(Vyon is concerned at one ship in particular, a squat round craft with six pads protruding from its belly.  His face is puzzled.)


11.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY

(Zephon broods alone just outside the city.  Vyon creeps up behind him and knocks him out with the butt of his blaster.)


12.  CONFERENCE ROOM

(The Galactic Delegates wait impatiently for Zephon.)


13.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY

(The Doctor, Steven and Katarina have joined Vyon.  Steven looks at the prone body of Zephon.)

(He puts on Zephon's helmet.)

(He pulls out the tape recorder.)

(He prepares to don Zephon's cloak.)


14. A CORRIDOR

(The Daleks locate the Doctor, and are fooled by his disguise.)

(Saying nothing, the Doctor follows the Dalek.)


15.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY


16.  CONFERENCE ROOM

(The Doctor is escorted in by the Daleks.  The other delegates are all in position around the semi-circular raised platform.)

(The Doctor moves hesitantly over towards the other delegates.)

(The delegates applaud.)

(He holds up a small, metallic object, cylindrical in shape.)


17.  SPAR SHIP

(Vyon, Steven and Katarina enter Mavic Chen's Spar ship.  The airlock leads into a large circular control room, with computer banks and controls around the walls.  Several technicians are inside; Vyon's blaster soon gets their attentions.)

(He motions with his blaster, and the technicians obey.  Vyon turns to Steven.)


18.  EXTERIOR, DALEK CITY

(Just outside the walls of the city, Zephon awakes.  Realising what has happened, he quickly pulls an alarm cord.)


19.  CONFERENCE ROOM

(The air is filled with the sound of the alarm siren.  The Daleks react immediately.)

(The delegates look around in confusion.  While everyone's attention is distracted, the Doctor runs to Mavic Chen, grabs the tarranium core from his hands and runs out of the Conference chamber.)

(The Daleks leave in hot pursuit.)


20.  SPAR SHIP

(Vyon reacts with alarm to the sound of the sirens and the increasing activity from the city.)

(Katarina mutters to the Trojan Horse-god.)

(Vyon tries to operate the controls for take-off.  Steven pulls him away.)

(He turns and knocks Steven to the floor, then resumes preparations for take-off.)
