Shortly after the last battle. The outriders seemed to beat up.
Nemesis was sent back into Vapor Zone and Jesse Blue with him.
Probably he would die there. No human could live in the vapor zone
for a long time. Cavalry Command and the Star Sheriffs start
celebrating the victory. Peace can come again to their galaxy. But
for some people it isn't over yet.
Chapter 1: The Survivor
He felt pain and darkness around him. There was nothing but darkness.
He wanted to breath but there was no air. The last he could remember
was the explosion. Everything was gone. What was before? He couldn't
remember. Even his name. It was all so far away. Suddenly he felt air
around him. Was he still alive? Or dead. Once more. How many death
did he die? Only two or were it more? Light. Outside the chamber he
was in somebody was standing. Watching him. Waiting for something.
The pain left him and the only feeling he had was weakness. He felt
tired but he knew that it was wrong to sleep. No. It wasn't his day
to die today. The chamber was opened. His eyes couldn't see very good
but he felt arms holding him and helping him. Someone brought him
into another room. A bed. Sleep. Finally it was over. The other gave
him something to drink. Then he fall asleep. Hours later he woke up
again. He was alone in the room. It looked familiar to him. A long
time ago he had been here. They brought him to this room when he
tried to kill himself. When he tried to show them why he thought that
he was human. Slowly he stood up and walked to the mirror. Looked
into his blue face, in his blue eyes, at his green hair and the
strange amulett, somebody gave him one time. They were wrong. He was
no outrider, although he looked like one. After his accident, after
his escape they gave him a new body. A clone or something similar. It
looked human. His soul was transfered in the new body which they made
for him. Humans thought he was a human and a traitor. But he never
was. Now he was himself again. The human clone was probably destroyed
when he was pushed back into vapor zone. They had to give him his
body back and he was glad about that. Perhaps he could live with the
truth now. The truth that he was both, human and outrider. Live would
go on and this time he would do what he really wanted and it would
not happen again to him that he would almost become like Nemesis. His
cousin Nemesis. Why? What did they do wrong? They wanted to bring
peace to their own race but in the end Nemesis changed and new wars
started. A new enemy. But the past could still repeat itself and he
was the only one who could do something against it. Nemesis had to
get his body back. Hopefully he would become the old again then. Then
they could finally end this stupid war he never wanted to get
involved with. Perhaps he could become friends again with those he
loved, with those who belonged to him like the outriders did. He
didn't hate humans anymore but he couldn't hate outriders for what
they did to him too. He still felt tired when thinking about it but
this time he wouldn't give up in any way. They wouldn't make him to
behave like an outrider again. Now he was free and he would do what
he had to do.
He didn't know what happened. After Mirai hurt him that he almost
died they brought him out. There he was somewhere locked in a dark
room on earth. Would he die here? They couldn't do that to him. Had
he to die on this planet. Why couldn't he die on his homeplanet. It
was reachable for him. He had the space ship. They were on their way
home when Mirai stopped them. Gave the space ship back to Andromeda
Promesium to the only one he ever loved. But this was long ago. Why
didn't she ever tell him that she wanted to save both races. Why
didn't she ever tell him the truth about the black hole. Because of
this stupid misunderstandings both of them had to die now. That had
never been their destiny. Thy should go back to Lahmetall. There was
still power in him and the strong will that he wouldn't die on this
planet. But the earths destiny didn't mean something to him. Only the
one of his own people and her one. He had to save her, had to hinder
her. It was his task to do this suicide mission. He would die in any
way. So he could do it for her. Then he could proof that he was not
like she thought he was. Slowly he stood up and called for help.
Again they thought they must help him and he managed to beat them up.
Took their guns and escaped to the underground hangars. His power was
enough to fly the space ship and follow her to the black hole. But he
arrived to late. It had happened already. She flew in the black hole
with her own space ship and caused an explosion with its energy. But
it wasn't over yet. Something was coming out of the place where the
black hole had been and his space ship was thrown against something,
through something. It was as if he was on the edge of the eye of a
storm. He was near enough to get himself killed by the explosion but
far enough to fly through the last parts of the black hole. The
energy was as strong as Mirais energy when she tried to kill him. He
still could feel her hands around him and the heat which almost
killed him. The terror repeated itself. There was pain and darkness
around him. Almost destroyed his body which seemed to burn. His
shuttle became such a speed that the pressure on his head caused that
he lost his consciousness for a long time. Perhaps he had not saved
her, but he would not die on earth. It was better to die out there in
space than to live on such a stupid planet whith only monkeys on it.
Why did she love them? He would never understand because this day was
probably the day he would die.
Chapter 2: The Stranger
Some days later far away on planet Alamo. While Saber, Colt and Robin
enjoyed the party Commander Eagle had organized for all the people
who helped beating up the outriders Fireball went out alone. Somehow
he couldn't relax. April would probably think because of Claudia who
also came to the party. But this wasn't the reason. He didn't want to
talk to Claudia, didn't mean to meet her and to make April mad with
him. What could he do? Claudia liked him and well she was a good
friend and she understood his love for racing. But he and April had
much more in common and they had gone through difficult situations
together. He could not think of somebody else to be his girlfriend,
one of his best friends. Claudia was just a girl with whom he could
talk about racing and such things. With April he could talk about
almost everything, except racing. She would not like if he would go
back to his racing life now. But this could bring him on other
thoughts. What did him make so sad? Why did he have to watch the sky
tonight and why couldn't he feel happy about their victory. Even Colt
could relax and think of a new life. All of them did believe in the
peace and would now try to start a new life. Probably Colt would
marry Robin and have his own family soon, Saber would go home or life
together with Cynthia and April would still work for Cavalry Command.
He would like the idea of doing that too. Maybe he could compare that
with his racing life. He could meet April pretty often. That would be
great. But he still felt tired and sad. Suddenly he heard steps
behind him. Who? He turned and there April was standing in the
monlight. Pretty as always. She still weared her red overall she
always weared on their mission. He liked her most when she weared the
overall. Then he thought silent by himself as famous warrious of both
of them. For him it seemed not to be such a good idea to see
everything like Colt who only joined the Star Sheriffs to revenge for
the death of his parents and who would start a normal life then. How
could he give up that. Perhaps he need the adventure more than his
friends cause his dad was a famous pilot himself. And there he was
again. With the thoughts which made him sad. But April was here now
too and they could share his sadness. Perhaps he would feel better
then. Hopefully she didn't only come to talk with him about Claudia.
"What are you doing alone out here Fireball? You seem somehow sad.
What's the matter with you? Is it because of Claudia. I didn't mean
to argue with you. Hey I talked to Claudia and everything is okay. I
acted in a stupid childish way. Sorry."
Fireball looked at her surprised. "What did you talk to her?
Hopefully nothing bad."
April laughed and he couldn't do anything but had to join in the
laughter. "No. We just talked. I guess we could become friends. She's
really a nice girl."
"April she will never be like you. That's all I wanted you to know
about this. I'm glad that this problem is solved now. It made me sad
that you were mad with me because of such an stupid reason. We could
never be a couple. There is only you April with whom..."
"You have not to tell me Fireball. I know this. So what did make you
coming out here alone. Don't you enjoy the party?"
Fireball shook his head. Both of them sat down on the field and while
he hold her hand they watched the stars. He felt better now but still
there was this feeling in him that he lost somebody. Why? He didn't
understand. Suddenly they saw it both. A strange light went over the
sky and vanished in the dark. Far away they heard a loud crash and
the night turned into day for some seconds. The earth shaked. April
and Fireball looked frightened at each other. What was that? She
didn't know who started but suddenly April realized that both of them
were running to the place where the crash could have come from. Soon
they were followed by Saber, Colt, Commander Eagle and a frightened
Robin, Cynthia and Claudia. It was clear that the party was over for
today. The Star Sheriffs had to do their work again. Couldn't they
have a small break? That's like a curse Saber and Colt thought by
themselves while following April and Fireball as fast as they could.
When they reached the place of the accident they heard and felt
another crash more hard and loud than the first one but far away from
the place they were now. It was a small space ship which looked
familiar to them. Lots of people in New Frontier used such space
ships. But what worried them more was what did make it crash down
here. Something was out there again. Could it be that some outriders
survived and started to fight against them on their own now?
Hopefully not. All of them were surprised when rescuing the space
shuttle and realizing that the pilot was someone April knew pretty
good. Trista. April didn't know that Trista could fly a space shuttle
and she never thought they would ever meet again after Trista
vanished the time they meet first on New Witchita. What brought her
here now? While her dad, Saber and Colt started an expedition to the
other crash April decided to stay in the hospital with Trista. She
was glad Fireball stayed too cause he had some soothing effect on
her. Somehow she had the feeling that Tristas appearance didn't mean
something good. Robin, Cynthia and Claudia were to much worried too
so that April decided not to stay too much with them. She was also
nervous herself so she didn't need people around her who were it too.
Both of them, Fireball and April were now standing infront of Tristas
bed. The doctors said that she would surely survive. She wasn't hurt
"Could it be that you were worried cause you felt what would happen?"
April asked him.
Fireball looked at her surprised. "I don't think that I have such an
ability and I wasn't worried cause of the comeback of outriders or
anything else. It was only that I felt a bit sad that our adventures
would be over and something else I don't want to talk about."
"If you need someone to listen I'm here."
Fireball nodded. "I wonder where she was going to and how this
"I guess that her accident has something to do with the other crash.
"Psst. She wakes up."
"How are you Trista?" April asked and sat down at Tristas bed.
"It could be better." She smiled. "I heard that you're on Alamo and I
wanted to visit you again. I don't know what happened. But suddenly
this other space ship arrived out of nowhere. It was to fast. Both of
us couldn't hinder the crash. Hopefully the other isn't hurt to
badly. I would never want to kill somebody."
"It's okay Trista. We don't know what happened to the other. Saber
and Colt are going to see after him or her. I'm glad that you're
"Where did you learn flying a space shuttle?" Fireball asked her
Trista smiled but it was difficult to talk for her cause she felt
still tired and ill. "Jesse taught me. Jesse and Jean Claude."
"Jean Claude? The outrider commander who managed to kidnap you and
this guy Pierre once. Do you remember Susi and Pierre?"
"Oh no. This stupid little boy." Fireball nodded.
"Jean told me about your meeting. I guess he admires Colt very much.
When he talks about him then always positive as if he would be his
April and Fireball looked at Trista surprised. They thought the
opposite,that Jean would hate Colt. But he liked him? But at the
moment this wasn't of any interest because Saber and Colt arrived not
long after their short conversation. They brought a young woman with
them. She weared a long black dress. Her long blond hair fell down
her shoulders. It was as long as she was tall. She was very pale and
her life was in real danger. Saber told them that her space ship was
as big as Ramrod and that you could measure a strong field of energy
around the ship. April realized that Cynthia and Robin were afraid of
the woman. Well, she was pretty. Probably Robin and Cynthia were
afraid that Colt and Saber would loose their interest in them. She
had not to worry cause Fireball seemed not to be interested in the
young woman. He was very thoughtful the last hours. If he would only
talk to her. She would like to help him but he didn't want her help.
When the theme turned to Jesse and Jean Claude he decided to let her
alone with Trista. They talked a lot about Tristas feelings for Jesse
Blue and her sadness that he would probably be dead cause he was sent
into vapor zone like the outriders. That would probably have killed
him. Trista needed a good friend and April was glad that they could
have a new start, could become friends again. She worried only a bit
about Fireballs strange behaviour. What was the matter with him.
Tristas proposal was that she should talk to him but she decided
several times and he always said that everything was okay and he
would only need some time for himself just to think about some
Of course Fireball thought about Trista and the strange woman. But
there were other thoughts in his brain too. He remembered the time he
was young. The time when his mother died and how she died. From this
time on he had nothing to loose. He was about twelve years old. His
mom never wanted him to do this stupid car races or to become a pilot
like his dad. She was glad when seeing him infront of a computer and
studying. She never knew what he was learning himself. If he had
never done perhaps he would not have known how to use a gun. He would
be dead like his dad. But shortly after his birthday when he turned
twelve years old they were attacked by outriders. It was the time he
had to grow up, had to become an adult, the time they killed his mom
infront of him. Terrible. When thinking about this time he almost
started to cry. After killing his mom they took him with them to the
outriders main space ship where he was brought to Nemesis. He didn't
understand what they wanted to do but he didn't like the idea of
beeing pushed into a phantom chamber. Someone saved him. A young
outrider, only some years older then him, a boy who got the mission
from somebody to save him, to bring him home. He escaped but he
changed. From this time on he was free to do what he wanted but never
ceared of his own life again. He started to become like his dad. For
a long time he didn't remember the outrider who saved him but know he
was thinking about him again. Somehow the outrider remembered him to
himself and he looked sad when he left the planet as if he would wish
to come with him. Later on when Jesse Blue seemed to organize a cease-
fire between Outriders and Humans Fireball had almost believed in the
peace and hoped to meet the outrider again. But his silent dreams
were destroyed by the betrayal of the outriders. Could there never be
peace? Perhaps peace would change him again and at the moment he
wished that cause he had something to loose again. And he didn't want
that one time the past would repeat itself and he would loose April
the same way he lost his mom or his dad. He never had enough time to
think about that but after Tristas accident he thought about that
without knowing why he thought about all those things now and not
before. Perhaps because he didn't believe in the peace anymore.
Didn't want to be disappionted again. Tristas accident was only the
first sign for a new danger. He didn't know what he really wanted
Chapter 3: The Time Spiral
The same time in the vapor zone. There was still darkness around him.
But he could see through it now. Freedom. Something knew. His soul
was able to leave the computer now. He could go where ever he wanted.
Learn knew things. He knew everything about the outriders and humans
past, about their technology, about their behavior, about the old
abilities, the secrets of life and the ability to leave your own body
without to die. The power was in him. It was his power, his life,
immortality. Nobody could kill him anymore. Thank the Star Sheriffs,
those stupid humans. They tried to kill him but gave him the
ultimative power he needed to control whatever he wanted. Perhaps he
could even go through time and then he could learn what nobody could
teach him for a long time. How much he was bored by the humans who
were not able to show him what it was like to feel. Then Jesse. He
knew who Jesse was. He came back. At first Jesse couldn't remember,
thought he was just a normal human kid or an outrider or something
between. This time he was the son of this stupid Star Sheriff who
destroyed his first cyborg body. His best one, which was like Jesses
clone body. Less machine than organic. The other time he was his
cousin. The body didn't matter. Jesses soul came back in a knew body.
He survived. Nemesis never died but Jesse did after the brother war.
The war Jesse and him could stop. They seperated something he
couldn't remember and transfered his soul into the first cyborg body
and later on in the computer. It was possible to come back. It was
true that after death you were born again. Jesse had luck to be born
into this time, so they could meet again. And Jesse wanted to help
him, to find out what it was like to feel. He would have almost
become like him and killed him. The brother war would have repeated.
Thank the Star Sheriffs again. They hindered him and now Jesse was
the same like before again. Remembered everything and was his cousin
again. Jesse was his only friend and they would rule the universe
together. Strange he could see some sort of space quake. Where and
what. In the human dimension a space ship arrived. A large one. And
in the vapor zone he could realize a small one. Perhaps the explosion
of their main space ship caused a whole in the time spiral. He heard
about such phenomens a long time ago when Jesse and him were both
living on their homeplanet Metheus. Sometimes when in the same
seconds in different times lots of energy was set free it could
happen that this caused a whole in the space or even in the timeline.
If this happened the strangers who arrived came wether out of another
dimension or another time. The twice was more possible and more
interesting to him. But he had to return now to their twice main
space ship which was built already during the war against Cavalry
Command. One of the newcomers would reach it pretty soon. He had
never seen such a space shuttle before but he realized that the
person inside seemed human. Besides he would help. Perhaps he could
learn something new. It was easy to use his power to bring the space
ship to one of the hangars on their main space ship. The stranger was
hurt badly by something but he would be healthy again soon like most
of his warriors. Soon he could start new battles against his enemies
and perhaps the young man inside the strange space ship could be a
help. After saving him he would go back into the humans dimension to
get the control of the other survivor and bring him or her into vapor
zone. He called out for Jesse and was glad that it was possible now
to communicate with his soldiers only by thoughts. Jesse seemed not
to like this knew ability. Nemesis was worried a bit but still
confident about the future.
"Where did you find him?" Jesse asked when he arrived at the hangar.
Outhere in space. Where else. There are more survivors then most of
us thought Jesse. Those who are still healthy will get a lot to do to
save all. I guess this one is important for us. We could learn more
about the time spiral phenomen
"You mean he came through time? This human came through a time whole.
Out of the past or the future?" Jesse asked him surprised. He still
worried about Nemesis and knew that at the moment his chances were
pretty bad to give him his body back. Besides he didn't knew enough
to redo the prozess of transferring. And there was so much to do.
Lots of outriders were hurt badly by the explosion. But most of them
That's my suggestion. You will take care of him. I have to search for
other survivors now.
Somehow Jesse had a bad feeling when Nemesis left him again. What
made Nemesis so confident? Did he have some new bad plans to beat up
humans? To start new terrible wars? Thoughtfully Jesse watched the
stranger. He looked human but something wasn't right with the young
man in the red overall and the red helmet. Jesse brought him to the
other survivors and said that the health of the young man was very
important for Nemesis so they had to hurry with helping him although
he seemed to be human. While Jean Claude and Grammis lead the
hospital which was as big as the whole planet at the moment, Jesse
went back into his secret rooms where he continued working at Nemesis
phantom chamber. He had to find a way to redo the transferring
prozess pretty fast if he wanted to hinder Nemesis to start a new
stupid war. For hours Jesse worked at his secret projects without any
results when he realized that someone managed his way down here. On
the monitors he could see that it was Jean Claude who seemed to be
worried. Jesse left the room cause he didn't want Jean to see what he
"What's the matter? Something with the human?"
Jean nodded. "It's not what you think. We tried to help him and it
seemed as if he would die. We gave up him after a while and you won't
believe it he vanished. We can't find him but he must be somewhere on
the planet. The hangars are closed already and nobody tried to leave
the planet. But he is nowhere."
Jesse looked at him mad. "Can't I ever do something else. Noone of
you can do important things in a stressful time or was it only that
you didn't want to help a human?"
"That's unfair Jesse. You know that I'm loyal to you and that we are
friends. Don't start acting like Nemesis again. It's good to know
that you're okay again."
"You need not to tell me. I know myself about that. There are more
important things to do than to argue about such things. I will take
care of the stranger myself. By the way did you find our human
commander yet? We should reorganize our organisation."
Jean shook his head.
"Find him and bring him here. I have to talk to him and to all those
who knew about our project on Lamari. Perhaps we have to evacuate
some people. And be careful. Nemesis is more powerfull than before
and more dangerous."
"I will do so. Good luck then."
"Good luck." Jesse went back into his secret lab. Over the monitors
and his new abilities Nemesis taught him the last days he could find
out very soon where the stranger was going too. Of course he made his
way back to his space shuttle. As fast as he could Jesse ran there
too. The stranger started to fight with his hands against the
outriders who were guarding the hangars. Jesse could overwhelm him
soon. The other looked at him angry.
"What do you want? I didn't ask you for help and I won't stay here."
he shouted at him.
"How do you want to fly with an almost distroyed space ship?"
"I can it repair myself."
"Then try. There is nothing but your distroyed space ship in there."
Jesse let him free and the young man went into the hangar. The other
outriders were worried very much but Jesse seemed to know what he
did. While the young man tried to repair his space ship he brought
him some helpful things without saying a word. But he realized soon
that the other, who was as young as himself, wasn't so much angry
after some time and even gave him the permission to help him.
"How did I come here?" he asked during a break.
"Nemesis, our leader brought you here. He's searching for survivors
while those who weren't hurt to much have to help the others. We are
in war against the humans."
"Humans? Those stupid monkeys have own space ships now? As good as
Jesse nodded. The stranger must come from the past if he didn't
know. "They have very good space ships, like our Renegades. It was a
hard fight but noone won it. The humans probably think they won but
as long as we can come back to revenge they have not won yet."
"Then we can become friends. I'm Yamori, head of the security and
bodyguard of Queen Millennia. I don't like humans too." He smiled at
him but he thought by himself that Andromeda Promesium would not have
liked his attitude. He acted like before. But she was dead and so it
didn't matter anymore what he thought and how he acted.
"I'm Jesse Blue, commander of the outriders. That's my race."
"Why are you fighting against humans? Where I come from they started
to fight against us at first. They didn't understand us. They didn't
care about us and our future. They wanted only to save their own
planet. But we never wanted to destroy it. It's not our fault that
Lahmetall pass earth every thousand years and cause natural
"I don't know exactly. What I know is that our homeplanet was
destroyed before I was born and that we search for a new home.
Outriders lost their feelings when they had to leave their homeworld.
Humans still have feelings. We only use the logic way to act. You
have to know more about our past for that. Our planet was destroyed
because of a terrible war, called brother war. Nemesis dad and his
brother faought against each other with using all weapons they had,
also the forbidden abilities. Nemesis found a way to stop the war.
Nemesis and his cousin. They thought that the feelings would be the
reason for the people to become mad one time. That's the reason why
Nemesis started an experiment in which he seperated his soul. One
part of the soul was transferred in the main computer. He is a cyborg
"Humans are your enemies because of those feelings, right?"
"Most of us are against humans because of that. But that does not
mean that all of us want what Nemesis want to. We are loyal to him.
But I hope that one time those stupid wars are over."
"Queen Millennia had the same attitude. But she never told that she
wanted to save both races and that she only wanted peace." Yamori
said thoughtfully. "What I don't understand is how humans got
dangerous space ships over night."
"I never heard of the planet Lahmetall and humans call earth planet
Yuma now. They have lots of colonies on other planets out there. You
seem to come from the past. You flew through time. Have you ever
heard of the mystery of time spirals."
"No. That's not my task to explore space and time. Why should anybody
want to fly through time?"
"To change the past or the future."
"And how do you think I menaged to fly through time?"
"Probably it was an accident. You see we think time is like a spiral,
like DNS, a code. In a spiral some parts are repeated constantly. For
example from time to time there are the same natural desasters on
different planets. But let's talk about the timeline again. If you
would like to fly through time you would have to be faster then
light, then energy, then time. You need lots of energy for that. A
channel in time can only be created if lots of energy is set free in
"I understand what you mean. In my time we had to save our planet by
changing a black hole into a sun. I can explain you how that worked
later. Lots of energy was set free. If I weren't somehow in the eye
of the explosion I guess it would have meant my death."
Jesse nodded. "During the period of time when the explosion took
place in your time and the distruction of our first main space ship
by the Star Sheriffs took place in my time a channel was created. A
channel beetween our times." Nemesis was right, this phenomen was
really interesting but Jesse was always interested in learning
something new. That was Nemesis problem now. He wanted to know
everything. Whatever he did, he had to be careful.
"By the way before I arrived at the black hole another space ship
must reach it. Do you think it came through time too? Probably
whoever was in survived?" Yamori asked and Jesse thought by himself
that Yamori seemed to worry about something.
"I don't know. But it can be. If it really happened I guess we will
find out soon." Probably Yamori would not tell him if he would ask
but Jesse thought that he was pretty sure about another one who
survived. He could imagine that this was Nemesis reason for searching
for other survivors again. They knew about almost all survivors and
contacted several bases in the vapor zone where other outriders
stayed. Why should he search for survivors then. Probably he knew
that onother sace ship arrived and he wanted to fetch it.
Chapter 4: Vanished
During the last days the Star Sheriffs managed to rescue the space
ship of the strange woman. It was almost destroyed and it was a
wonder that the woman would survive. Trista felt much better now and
tried to help the stranger. She talked a lot with April the last days
she had to stay in bed and was lucky to be friends with her again.
April herself was proud of Trista who lived almost alone on her own
and managed to become a doctor the last month. Probably that was the
reason for her and the woman becoming healthy again so fast. Soon
they could start a conversation with the stranger and could find out
where she came from. Hopefully the people she came from weren't
enemies. To Aprils unluck Fireball was still behaving strange and
didn't want to talk with her about that. Robin and Colt planned to
marry although there was still the danger that Colt would continue
his work for Cavalry Command in the future. But Robin loved her
boyfriend to much to give him up only because he had a dangerous
life. Somehow she couldn't imagine a Colt who lived a normal life.
The adventure belonged to Colt like his guns.
The last days Trista thought a lot about her past and her future.
After she talk with April she felt much better but in silent times
she remembered the words of Jean Claude and those of her uncle
Commander Whitehawk when she came back to start a new life. Jean had
told her about Jesses secret, about him beeing half human half
outrider and the transfer of Jesses soul into a new human body which
was an android body. He told her about Jesses past and gave her
strange links to her own past. She believed what he told her about
Jesse but couldn't believe what he told about her parents. Later on
when talking to her uncle she also had doubts about what Jean said
about Jesse. But then, not long ago she had a strange experience.
Similar to this one. She started to work as a young doctor at an
hospital on planet Far. She left New Witchita only to forget and that
was also the reason why she didn't plan to live on Yuma or Alamo for
a long time. She didn't want to meet someone who could talk with her
about the past. But then she had this stupid car accident. She wasn't
hurt to much. Only some scratches. The other was hurt worse. What an
unlucky girl she was. Always those stupid accidents. But again it
wasn't her fault. It was luck that she could still use her car and
bring the young man to the next hosital where she took care of his
health. The thing which confused her most was that the scratches on
her arms and her face weren't red but blue. She had blue blood, like
an outrider. Could it be that Jean Claude was right. At first she
thought that she had imagined everything. The young man was healthy
soon and she found out his name was Snake and he knew Jesse very
good. They grew up together on planet Far. He told her a lot about
their childhood and the time the outriders kidnapped Jesse. From the
time on Jesse saved his life and went with the outriders for the
twice time as their prisoner Snake started a private war against the
outriders. Later on he found out that not all outriders were as bad
as he thought and he decided to join a group whose members put in for
peace. From Snake she heard that there was a really peacemoving
project on planet Lamari and that it was the fault of the Star
Sheriffs and some to aggressive outriders why it didn't work. It was
Snake who told her that it was true what Jean told her about Jesse
and suddenly she started to believe again. That was the reason why
she came back to Alamo. She wanted to tell the Star Sheriffs. But she
came to late. Snake would say I guess Jesse will survive but was this
only a dream. She hoped not. Perhaps she would have told April more
about her experiences if there had not been this stupid accident. Now
she had a lot to do to save the womans life. She was out of danger
now. When this was over she would have to talk to April, of whom she
thought she would listen and try to understand. Perhaps she would
also ask her if the doctors had found out something strange about her
anatomie while she lost her consciousness. But she would not find the
Trista sat down by the young woman who was sleeping now. She would
need someone around her when she woke up. Suddenly Trista felt cold.
Something was with her in the room. Jean Claude told her once about
the secret abilities of the outriders. Jean himself could hypnotize
others just with his eyes. It was his secret that he used this
ability sometimes. And now she had the feeling that something was in
the room with her, watching her, coming nearer and nearer. There was
power around her. She felt tired and sick. Something wanted to go in
her head, wanted to control her. No. She would fight, never give up.
For some moments she forgot everything and only one thought was in
her mind. Nemesis. Then she felt the strange wish to bring the woman
out of here. She had to find a space shuttle and had to bring her
away from here. This was a dangerous place. Star Sheriffs were around
here. Humans. Slowly she walked out. There were some doctors. Help me
to bring her to the next shuttle. Trista thought. The doctors turned
towards her. Their eyes looked tired, like her own one. They nodded.
The woman was brought to a shuttle fast. Nobody hindered them. Trista
managed to leave the planet without beeing noticed. The voice in her
head told her where to go. The secret base on Lamari. Outriders would
come back soon. The base would be in use at first. This time
outriders would win because they would use their most powerful
weapon. The secret forbidden abilities human never thought of or
believed in. But it was true and Trista was only the first victim.
Nemesis was glad, although he didn't realize the feeling. He had
lived to long without feelings so he forgot what feelings really
were. The first step was done. On Lamari some outriders would take
care of Trista and the young woman. The woman would be brought into
vapor zone. Trista would have to stay on Lamari. Soon Trista would
finally belong to her race again. She was half human half outrider
too. She never knew or believed. But her mother was outrider, like
Jesses mom. Her parents were killed for that. But it was not Tristas
fault what she was. Nemesis would accept her like all who were born
accidently. But those half human beeings were dangerous he knew. They
had feelings. Feelings were dangerous but interesting. Should he
really try to find out? Yes, he had to know everything to be the most
powerful beeing in the universe. He would rule. He would be the
master. Then he could also bring peace to the universe again. Why
didn't he ever think of this easy possibility. It was the solution
for all their problems.
The same time April talked to one of the doctors which took care
about Trista and the young woman. Her friends hoped to find out
something about her with exploring the place she appeared at first
and with exploring her space ship which was almost destroyed.
„I have to say your friend Trista is almost as srange as the woman we
found in the big space ship." The doctor meant thoughtfully.
„Why? What's wrong with her?"
„Of course we're lucky that both of them are very strenght and have a
seldom string health. Under other circumstances I guess the woman
would have died. She lookes human except that she has such a good
health. But Trista? I never saw something like this before. She heald
herself. We couldn't do it anyways. Her anatomie is so different from
„She is no human? Do you mean she could be an outrider?"
„No. I know something about their anatomie. She isn't outrider but
she isn't human too. I would almost say she is both."
The doctor nodded. „I wouldn't believe if I had not seen it myself."
„I have to talk to her."
„Wait. She is at the womans room. Taking care of her."
„Thanks." April ran as fast as she could but she was to late. The
room was empty. April searched for her immediately and informed her
friends by the two-way radio. Where was Trista and why did she take
the woman with her? Something was wrong. Saber, Colt and Fireball
didn't find out much about where the space ship came from. There were
no traces. The technology of this human looking people seemed as good
as their owns.
Therefore they found some traces Trista left behind her escape. April
didn't tell her friends what the doctor told her but she worried a
lot about Trista. What made her to vanish so fast. Could it be that
the woman woke up and took her with her? They had to find them. Even
Robin joined their team to help finding Trista.
A few days after Trista vanished Robin discovered some new traces
which lead them to planet Lamari. Here they hoped to find her.
The last days they visited several planets on which they supposed to
find her but without success. After their arrival they visited the
mayor who seemed to be not very happy about their visit. He acted not
more friendly then the first time they met but and even wished them
good luck but something seemed to be wrong. Were the outriders back?
Or something worse? On their way to the secret outrider base they had
found here on their first and last visit on Lamari they didn't see
lots of people. And those they met weren't very talktive but tried to
avoid talking to them. When they wanted to enter the area which would
lead them to the entrance of the base they were stopped by a girl all
of them, except Robin knew all to well.
„You should not do that. Can't you read. This is only for outriders,
not for Star Sheriffs."
„Snowcone?" all of them turned and looked at the blue haired girl.
She looked older now, almost like a young woman. Her hair was as long
as Aprils, she weared a blue overal and black sunglasses.
„You remember me? Hey you're really good." She smiled especially in
„You can believe me or not. But if I were you I wouldn't go down
there. Strange things are happening. I don't want to be involved in."
She wanted to go but Robin hold her back.
„You seem to know more about what's going on here. Please tell us
about it. We are searching for someone and suppose to find her here."
„I shall help you? For what? You never helped me. You came here and
destroyed our peace and now you come back to destroy it once more."
„Hey. How can you say that." Colt shouted at her. „The outriders
betrayed you and who knows what would have happened if we didn't do
„Colt, please." Robin said calmly. „Snowcone we aren't here for
„Does this mean the outriders are back?" Fireball interrupted them.
„That's not your matter. If we need your help we will ask. Okay
what's your problem? Perhaps I can help." Snowcone turned back to
„Did someone arrive here the last days?"
„Lots of people arrive and leave this planet. For whom are you
„A young woman called Trista. I've got a photo here."
Snowcone looked thoughtfully at the picture, shook her head and
looked at them seriously. „I heard about her. She vanished right? I
can't tell you if she is here. Who did tell you that?"
„We got a message by somebody." Saber said.
„I can give you only the advice to leave the planet soon. You're
right, the outriders are back and most of the people are friends with
them again. But something strange is going on. This time my dad and I
won't help you. If you get into trouble it's your problem. I told you
to be careful. That's all I can tell you."
„Snowcone..." April shouted but Snowcone was gone yet.
„What shall we think of that?" Colt said angry.
„She changed a lot." Fireball said thoughtfully.
„Probably she is mad because you never visited her." April laughed.
„Hm. No it's something else. This time she was a child and I don't
think it was real love. I was only some sort of idol for her nothing
more. Perhaps she also considered me as her brother. But I'm not the
reason for her change. She grew up and somebody put bad thoughts
about us in her head. Probably outriders."
„She seemed to be frightened about something. So you could be right
Fireball. But I guess she don't know if she really wants our help
cause it seemed to become much worse after the last time you helped.
You never heard about what happened on Lamari after your last visit."
„Besides she is a stupid kid." Colt grumbled by himself and Robin
looked mad at him.
„With this attitude you can't become a good father do you know that."
Colt looked at her ashamed and decided to stop talking.
„Of course we won't listen to her warning." Fireball said and started
to walk towards the secret entrance.
„Wait. We should try to find her again and talk to her dad again
before we do something which could cause a new war." Saber warned
him. „I know that both of you Colt and Fireball like adventures but
we should think before we do. Snowcone didn't warn us just for fun."
Although they decided to follow Saber now Colt and Fireball thought
by themselves that they would have a visit at the base alone later on.
Chapter 5: Betrayed
Some time later on New Helpereside. When Nemesis came back Yamori
noticed that he brought someone with him. Jesse told him already that
it was possible that Nemesis didn't search only for outrider
survivors but for other strangers out if Yamoris time. Perhaps Queen
Millennia survived. The last days Jesse helped him to find out more
about the past. One of Jesses human friends sent him some
informations what happened to Lahmetall after the explosion which
caused the hole in time. Humans and Lahmetalls had become friends and
their races mixed up within the time. With the help of Lahmetalls
humans could discover knew and better technologies and start
exploring their galaxy. Lahmetall was now called Alamo and it wasn't
covered with ice and snow anymore. The war was over and at first
Yamori didn't know what to do when he heard about it. If there were
other survivors of his time he would have to take care of them but if
not he had to decide wether fighting for Nemesis or joining Jesses
secret group which wanted peace between humans and outriders. Shortly
after Nemesis arrived and started to organize knew trainings for his
warriors. They had to learn new abilities which looked strange and
dangerous to Yamori. When finding the stranger he was worried and
lucky together. Yayoi Yukino, alias Andromeda Promesium, survived.
She was as surprised as him cause she suspected him to be dead also.
„Yamori? It's you? What are you doing here and where are we?"
Yamori sat down near her bed and hold her hand. „You're right. I
survived. Like you. I'm glad that you're still alive."
„What happened? Are they save or did I fail. How is Hachime?"
„I don't know. We aren't in our time. The explosion you caused opened
a whole in time and we were sent through. I tried to stop you. Tried
to do what you wanted. I wanted to save you. If you would have told
me about your plans I could have understand and I would have done it
instead of you."
„What do you mean we went through time? And you ..."
„One of those who saved me told it to me. I can't imagine it but you
have not to worry about humans. I found out that after the explosion
of the black hole both planets were saved. Humans and Lahmetalls
became friends. As you wished. There was a long time of peace.
Lahmetalls and Humans mixed up within the time and today those
stories about us are probably history and legends. Lahmetall is
called Alamo. The informations about the past were found by one of my
new friends in some history books. But humans have new enemies now."
„That's a long story. I'm glad about what happened and that you seem
to understand me now."
Yamori smiled at her. „May I work for you again. Would you let me
swear loyality to you again?" He asked slowly.
She smiled at him and nodded. „I alsways believed in you Yamori and
I'm glad to see you changing. But do you know what's going on here
and why I'm brought here. Some humans helped me. I was in a hospital
and suddenly I was brought here. I don't understand."
Yamori looked at her confused. He didn't understand too. But he could
Suddenly the door was opened and Jesse came in. „Here you are. I
searched for you already Yamori. Is she the one you hoped she would
survive." Yamori nodded.
„Why were I brought here?" Yajoy asked him.
„I can't tell you. Where have you been before."
„Humans found her." Yamori said.
Jesse nodded thoughtfully. „I can imagine you don't understand what's
going on. But I have not the time to explain all to you now. But I
guess our leader Nemesis has some bad plans and wants you to get
involved in the war against humans."
„You're in war with the humans? Why?"
„There are several reasons. They have feelings and they still have
planets to life on. But there are other reasons too. We are a race of
warriors. But not all of us want war. I'm also a member of the small
group of outriders who want peace."
„My race didn't know about feelings very well too." Yajoy said
„I don't want you to get any troubles. That's why I planned to sent
both o you to planet Lamari. We have a secret base there. Outriders
and Humans managed to life in peace there the last years. It's one of
our projects. I can tell you where to fly and you can use Yamoris
space ship to go there."
„Can't we help you to bring peace to the galaxy?" Yayoj asked him
„Perhaps you can. But at the moment it's the best all members of our
group eave vapor zone and meet on planet Lamari later on. Nemesis is
more powerful and we can't know what he plans to do now. You should
leave Helpereside soon. Besides I don't know if you can't live in
vapor zone anyways. Humans can't do it for long and your anatomie
seems to be similar to their one."
Yamori nodded. „Let's go then. Can we contact you when we arrived?"
„Of course. But only if it important. I could get really big troubles
here if Nemesis finds out what I'm doing. He won't be glad when
realizing that he can't use your technology now. But I try to manage
„Why don't you come with us then?"
„I have to do lots of things here. Important things. On Lamari you
can contact Jean Claude and Calibos. They can help you."
While saying that Jesse went with them to the hangars without
speaking much more to them and watched them leaving the planet a bit
worried. He was pretty sure Nemesis would realize something. From now
on he had to be very careful. Most of his friends left New
Helpereside already. Jean and Calibos were searching for Commander
Shinji, Grammis and Rezzly were on Lamari already and Isis had the
task to manage the escape of all members of their group out of vapor
zone. Hopefully they wouldn't get only problems with Nemesis but with
the Star Sheriffs too because of Nemesis actions now. Thoughtfully
Jesse went back to his secret projects. Hopefully Nemesis wouldn't be
to mad with him but he he had some good arguments for him. If he had
luck everything would go good. While working at his projects he felt
Nemesis coming back.
Jesse. Did you take care of our guests? Why do they leave the planet?
And what are you doing down here at my body. It's not your task to
make experiments. Important missions are waiting for you.
Jesse looked up from his work. He worried when he heard Nemesis
thoughts in his brain. Nemesis became much powerful.
„Something was wrong with your phantom chamber. I had to repair it.
Remember. If your body dies it can be that your soul will search for
a new body and you will be born without a memory on your last life
I know Jesse. Good to know that you take care of my body. But what's
going on with our guests. I heard they left New Helpereside.
„I have some new projects. Yamori and Yajoy will help us. They can
lead the projects on Lamari without humans realizing immediately that
we are back. You know they look human."
Are you sure you can trust them?
„You should know that I'm always sure of what I'm doing. What's going
on with your projects? Didn't you plan something new for beating up
You know about the old abilities Jesse. Some of our people have
talents and I started teaching them. Some of them even started to
teach their own groups. This is a weapon humans can't resist.
"But it's dangerous. You know why they were forbidden."
I know. But everyone has the right to learn them and besides I have
the control over them. Continue your work now Jesse. I will watch
With this words Nemesis left the room again. Jesse might think he
believed in his words but he didn't trust in Jesse yet. He had to be
very careful. You never knew what Jesses plans were. But he didn't
want to help him that was sure. Jesse was powerful and a real
opponent. Nemesis had to be careful if he didn't want Jesse to beat
him up. It was better never underestimating Jesse for what he did.
Jesse was still like before. He changed twice. What did he really
want? Only his freedom, his position or did he really want to help
him to get to know what feelings are. Perhaps he wanted to teach him
also how it was to life in peace with other creatures. One day he
would know but he would watch Jesse carefully. One of his most loyal
soldiers should take care of him.
Jesse also realized that Nemesis didn't trust in him. But he was glad
that Nemesis wasn't to mad with him cause he sent Yamori and Yajoy
away. But he worried that Nemesis knew that they were on Lamari. If
Nemesis found out about what they really were doing there that could
have terrible consequenzes. Peace would be in real danger if it
weren't now yet. The outriders learned fast to use the old abilities.
Soon they were able to attack New Frontier. He had to finish his work
or to continue it on planet Lamari. Humans had to be prepared for the
new weapon of the outriders. In the other way they had no chance to
win. Why didn't he think of that earlier? He had to play a dangerous
The same evening Nemesis met Nikodemus who had the task to spy after
Jesse. Nemesis worried a lot about Jesse. Sometimes he talked like
his cousin, sometimes like a loyal warrior and sometimes like someone
who could be his enemy. Perhaps he acted so different because he is
half human this life. He has to control his human side. Besides
Nemesis would be careful. He didn't want to loose him again. One time
to his people and one time to those humans. He would see what future
would bring. Let's hope the best. Now he had to continue his projects
What could you find out Nikodemus?
„My sister contacted him again. You know that Isis often has
different opinions than the rest of us. But she is no danger. I guess
Jesse plans something but I could not say what it is. Some people say
that Yamori and Yajoy weren't sent to Lamari because of the reason
Jesse told us."
So you bring bad news. I want you to go to Lamari and check out the
situation. Take the best trained warriors with you and take over the
control there. Than inform me immediately about what's going on. If
you need help I can take the control over several people there. And I
want you sister coming here. I have to talk to her.
„She didn't do anything bad. I will do what you wish but don't punish
her to hard."
I do what I have to do and leave me alone now. Nemesis felt angry and
bad. His cousin beatrayed him again. What were his plans? He realized
that Jesse sent all his friends to planet Lamari and he had a bad
feeling about that. Probably they were all traitors. When bringing
Trista to Lamari he had the control over most of the soldiers there
that was the reason why he didn't worry a lot when realizing that
Jesse started to send his companions there. But now?
Not long after the conversation between Nemesis and Nikodemus a short
message arrived at Jesse central computer.
„Isis to Commander Blue. My brother was sent to Nemesis not long ago.
I guess he arrived yet. The rest of Commander Shinjis company and me
are on our way to planet Lamari. We sent a message to them already
that it would be the best to evacuate. Nemesis knows probably
something about our plans and he could feel betrayed. I hope you get
my warning. Isis over."
Chapter 6: The Escape
Trista felt empty and tired. After she brought the woman to the
outrider base noone took notice of her anymore. She was almost free.
But when they brought the woman away she felt the other leaving her
too. There were no voices in her head anymore. Had the woman been an
outrider she wondered by herself while walking through the outrider
base. Hours went by untill she found a way out. Planet Lamari. Not
long after her escape out of the base she met this blue haired girl
who helped her.
For some days the girl looked after her. Trista didn't know her name.
But it was good to have a friend. The last day the girl seemed
worried about something. Perhaps she was the reason. She talked to
much to her about what happened. The girl was confused and frightened
about her story.
Suddenly a name came to her mind. Snowcone. Snowcone she thought by
herself while imagine the blue haired girl. Something woke up in her
The door opened. „Did you call for me?" the girl asked while looking
at her worried.
„You're name is Snowcone?" Trista asked her.
She nodded. „Have I told you or is the other coming back? Do you hear
voices again?" Snowcone asked suspicious.
„I don't hear voices but since I heard them things come up to my mind
which I could not know. But I know them. I don't know what's
happening to me. Will I become crazy?"
Trista sat down tired. Snowcone sat near her and hold Tristas
hand. „You won't become crazy. I will help you. We have to know
what's going on. If you know something about the outriders, please
tell me. They are our friends but according what you said already
they could be in danger too. Peace could be in danger."
„I'm glad that some outriders survived. Perhaps the one I love
survived too. I also want peace."
„Trista, there are people out there searching for you? Do you really
know the Star Sheriffs?"
Trista looked at her surprised. „You mean they are here? They can
surely help us Snowcone. April can. I hope so. She is my friend. I
„I didn't tell them about you cause I don't know what they can cause
this time. I admire them, especially Fireball. But I don't know if I
can trust in them. If they really want peace and not only killing all
the outriders here who are really friendly. I know some by myself."
„Who says that the Star Sheriffs only want to kill outriders?"
„I made some bad experiences. At first it looked like they wanted to
help us. Well, perhaps you're right. Probably I don't know the Star
Sheriffs very good. There were lots of misunderstandings the last
time I met them. Outriders and Star Sheriffs acted in the wrong way
and me too. In another way the battle could have been avoided. But I
was only a child."
„Everybody can make mistakes Snowcone. But if you learn out of them
it doesn't matter. Where can we find the Star Sheriffs. I would like
to talk to April."
„I guess they visit my dad. He is the major in town. I will show you
After getting the warning Jesse prepared everything to leave the
planet. While flying away with Badlander he had a bad felling
already. It was to easy. Did Nemesis build a trap for him? How could
he think that he could really escape? Nemesis would find him
everywhere. To save his friends it was the best not to go to Lamari.
He sent out a message to them. They would be careful. But he had gone
to far with Nemesis. Or did he talk to less with him? If he would
give him a chance he would talk to him. But for now it was the best
to go. Save the body untill Nemesis got crazy.
Suddenly he felt something near him. Powerfull and old. He is
somewhere near me Jesse thought. I remember the past with my brain
but not with my heart yet. If I would I could resist. I know what he
You betrayed me once more Jesse. I know about your peacemaking
actions. You would let me die only for peace.
„You're wrong Nemesis. I don't want you to die or why should I take
care about your body. I don't want to betray you and I know I made a
mistake without telling you about my plans. But I guess you would not
believed or not wanted such actions."
I admire you Jesse and I still consider you as my cousin that is why
I'm so understandful. But one time I won't forgive you again. What
have you to tell?! Tell me now!
„The peacemaking movements on planet Lamari shall show humans that
peace is possible. When we come back I want to make a new cease-fire.
The other plan I have is to redo the transformation prozess. You
could become the old one soon. I almost found out how to do it."
Your peacemaking movements aren't bad Jesse. But you see how good I
feel. I don't need my body and I don't want it. You will take care of
it but you won't redo the prozess.
„I knew that you would think so. That's why I didn't tell you.
Believe me I only want to help. I don't want your place, I just want
to live a normal life, a life in peace where I'm allowed to love
both. Humans and Outriders. I'm not your enemy. I only want peace.
And I want you to know how it is to feel. It was wrong that we
I don't need a body therefore. Nemesis interrupted him.
Suddenly he stoped talking but Jesse felt sick. Something - Nemesis
wanted to take over him. Voices were in his head. Voices and
pictures. Feelings and thoughts of the old times overwhelmed him.
Pain and darkness. But he would fight, would never give up,
surrender. The pain. No, he had to survive, had to escape. He must
help his friends, warn the humans...overtake them.
Planet Lamari. The invasion would start there. As fast he would
arrive as fast the invasion would start.
Somewhere in space.
There was almost no air around him. He couldn't breathe anymore. It
had been a bad idea to turn back into his human body. But Jean Claude
and his son Jesse seemed to like the idea. Now they would bring him
to Lamari. That would be better. Air to breathe again. The air in the
small space shuttle was scanty. Calibos was bringing him home again
now. Hopefully they would reach the human dimension soon enough. He
didn't like vapor zone as long as he was in his human body. The
outrider clone body was much better to use here.
But now they had to prepare their last projects. Peace had to return
to the galaxy fast. The wars must end finally. Not the way Nemesis
wanted it to end but another way.
Friendship was needed between their races. Friendship like between
him and the woman who gave birth to Jesse a long time ago. When
remembering the young outrider woman he always thought about his
human wife who he had to let alone with their unborn son.
Fireball. Would he ever forgive him for what he did? Could Jesse and
Fireball become friends and accept each other as brothers? Could
Fireball live with the ruth one day or was it better never to tell
him? But Jesse knew already and Jesse would tell one day. Truth found
a way like life.
He realized Calibos worried looks at him. Probably he realized that
air became scanty in here. Calibos gave him a mask and he felt better
seconds later. But there was still few air and the whole climate in
vapor zone had a bad effect on his body like the first time he was
thrown into vapor zone. This time he was saved by some outriders who
founded a group already which wanted peace.
It was a bad time. A time of war and fear. Nemesis changed a bit
because of Jesse. Perhaps because Jesse gave him new opportunities to
learn and get to know more.
Jesse knew Nemesis better and Jesse found the good part in Nemesis.
It was good to fetch Jesse those days. He was the one they waited
for. His own son - Nemesis cousin who was born twice. The first
person who came back after death. Humans didn't believe in that. They
thought you could only live one time and after death your soul went
back to god. But Jesse was the first example that they must be wrong.
The secrets of life were much more complicated then humans thought
and there was still a lot they could learn.
Suddenly a message arrived at the space ship and the human commander
was interrupted in his thought.
„Calibos? Are you out there?"
„Isis? You? What's the matter? Where can we find you?"
„I'm here at one of our outposts. I'm okay. Don't worry. Trouble is
coming up. It seems as if noone takes care of this outpost."
„What's the matter?"
„Nemesis called out for my brother. You know Nikodemus is loyal to
Nemesis. But he also tells me a lot about what's going on. He warned
me that Nemesis would be mad with me and mainly with Jesse. He sent
him to Lamari. I warned Jesse yet, but I don't know if I was fast
enough. Nemesis wants to use the old abilities to take over the
„The good news are that most of our people are saved and here on my
outpost. Grammis is fetching the last ones no. Sorrowly we had to
give up Lamari. For you it would be better to hid here to."
„We can't. Commander Shinji is in his human body again. I will bring
him to planet Far. Hopefully Snake can help us to get contacted with
Cavalry Command. Hopefully they will listen to us. Humans have to be
„I hope for you that it will work as you wish."
„We have to try. Good luck then."
„Take care of yourself. Over."
„I don't think we will get trouble with Cavalry Command. They know me
and will listen to me. But I worry about Jesse."
Jean who flew the shuttle nodded. He didn't speak to much since they
found the commander and redid the transformation prozess. What was on
„I will bring you to planet Far and from there on you will lead the
arrangements with Cavalry Command. I have to search for Jesse then.
Something went wrong. We underestimated Nemesis. But there is one
person I don't know out there who could resist Nemesis. But who?"
Jean said silent more to himself then to Calibos and Commander Shinji.
Chapter 7: The Invasion
After taking over Jesse Nemesis felt much better. He wouldn't loose
Jesse and the brother war would never repeat itself. But Jesses
thoughts confused him a bit. At first he thought Jesse only said he
want to help him cause in reality he wanted to take his place. If he
was in his body again he would be weaker, someone could kill him or
manipulate him. Jesses thoughts were much different from what Nemesis
expected. He was hurt and he was frightened although he didn't show.
Always tried to hide his feelings. Besides he was full of hope, hope
for peace and a life where he had not to choose wether he had to be
human or outrider. Jesse seemed to be the same idealistic person he
had been in his last life. Nemesis had also been idealistic. Was it
wrong to do the transformation prozess? It can't. Now he had the
chance to learn everything and to become the most powerful beeing in
the universe. Of course he was a bit crazy about knowing everything
but he was to curious to stop it. His mind become larger and he tried
to see on different places the same time.
What could he see? His people overtaking the first humans. There were
still outriders who seemed to work for Jesse and didn't want to
overtake humans in vapor zone. They had to be overtaken by him. Isis
Okar, as easy to overtake as her brother? Difficult. But he would
manage it. Pretty soon all outriders would leave vapor zone and the
invasion would start.
Planet Lamari. There it would start. Started yet. Power and
knowledge. A warning. Jesse warned humans yet. Yajoy and Yamori were
traitors. They made arrangements with the Star Sheriffs, like
Snowcone and Trista. But Jesse would come soon and those problems
would be solved faster then they began.
Calibos was on his way to Cavalry Command. How easy. Nemesis felt
Calibos soul which wanted to push him away but he was stronger.
Commander Shinji? Nemesis was confused. His main enemy was alive.
Commander Shinji realized that something was wrong with Calibos. It
would be great to overtake his worst enemy. They wanted to escape but
they had no chance. He could find them everywhere. Now they were his
slaves. They would met some high ranked officers from Cavalry Command
and soon Nemesis would beat up humans military force.
Humans were lost. He took over the only people who could help.
The same time Trista started to train Snowcone, Yajoy, Yamori and the
Star Sheriffs so they could resist against the outriders. Of course
Yamori and the Star Sheriffs prefered fightening with guns but how
should they fight against brainpower. Yajoy was the one who learned
The silent war started on several places in the galaxy almost at the
same time and more and more humans were its victims. Even Cavalry
Command seemed to be overtaken and the small group of rejects on
Lamari wasn't able to protect the whole galaxy. Their enemies were
strong and humans weren't used to use the old abilities. Especially
for the Star Sheriffs it was difficult to learn, but they had only
few time. Almost no chances.
If Jesse had survived Trista thought he could probably have the
chance to win against Nemesis.
During the battles the outrider warriors used the old abilities to
get control over the rejects. At first they could resist the new
enemy but later on the brainpower started to confuse them. In the end
they almost didn't manage to fly Ramrod.
Out of their house they started to fight against humans who were
still controled by the outriders and the darkness which wanted to
fill their heads. Something powerfull was outthere and it came
As time flew by they realized that if there wouldn't come help they
could not resist any longer.
Trista also felt the power of Nemesis near herself again. He came
back to fetch her. Hopefully she could resist and when time came up
she could warn her friends. But with Nemesis arrival Trista felt
something else too. Jesse. He was still alive. Somewhere outthere.
Hopefully he could help. Save them. There were voices in her head
again. Silent voices which talked to her. Jesse was outthere. Not far
away from her. He seemed to be able to talk to her over thoughts.
Jesse came back to help her. She would listen and believe. How much
she knew about him yet. April was wrong, Jesse wasn't a bastard who
only used her. She would follow him. He would help.
Snowcone. Jesse is coming and helping us. Do you hear him? She asked
and saw Snowcone nodding her head. Her eyes looked tired like Tristas
Suddenly April sank down on the floor. Fireball started to help her
„What's the matter with you? Trista, help her. What's going on."
But Trista didn't say anything just watched them. Jesse comes to help
Fireball heard Tristas and Snowcones words in his ear. What happened
to them? Please not April. Don't take her away from me, Fireball
thought shooked while watching Trista and Snowcone coming near him.
„Saber, Colt they took over Trista and Snowcone. Come in!" he cried
while taking care of April who was still on the floor and whispering
You can't win. Saber and Colt heard the voice in their heads while
binding Trista and Snowcone. I'm the best. You have to realize now.
But Colt and Saber started fightening. It was hard to fight against
an enemy you can't see. There were more voices in their heads then
Unable to help or do something Fireball watched his friends almost
becoming crazy. He had to escape. Outriders started to make their way
in the house.
Robin tried to fetch Colt but Colt and Saber were enable to move.
There was darkness around them. Darkness, pain and confusion but
mostly the pain of Nemesis past which travelled within the time in
the humans zone too. Saber felt almost pity for the Outriders leader.
Voices were everywhere and Robin was infected too when holding Colt
tight in her arms.
Yajoy still seemed okay. While Yamori fought against the outriders
and humans who wanted to beat them up Yajoy helped Fireball to bring
April to Ramrod. There wasn't enough time to save the others.
Four people could fly Ramrod but one of them was unable to do. Three
could also make it.
In Ramrod they were save for the moment. But Nemesis would find them
everywhere. Yajoy could feel him yet as she felt him when Trista
brought her to planet Lamari and later on when outriders brought her
to New Helpereside. He would try to overtake Yamori. As long as they
were together she could protect him with her own power.
How long could they resist? Renegades were coming up and they
couldn't win against several of them. The last fight would be decided
here. Would humans win? The situation was hopeless.
Perhaps she should use her own power to beat up Nemesis although this
could mean her death.
Almost all humans were overtaken yet by outriders and Nemesis didn't
need his power to control them. He controled his own people and his
own people controled humans. He only helped them to use their own
Probably Yajoy had no chance. But she had to try before the outriders
would beat them. Yamori would take care of her while she tried to
fight against Nemesis.
There was darkness, pain and fear. Terrible wars of the past. Two
boys between the most terrible war the outriders ever were confronted
with. Nemesis and Jesse. The sons of the leaders. Only one of them
should lead the outriders. But they wanted to role both. They were
friends and they didn't want to fight each other. They could divide.
Their dads didn't want to. The brother war. Then something new. Jesse
and Nemesis discovered how to seperate feelings from brain. A cyborg.
Nemesis soul was transferred in the cyborg body, in the central
computer. Warriors. People without feelings are perfect warriors.
Learning. Nemesis wanted to know everything. What are feelings? How
is it to have the ultimative power? Still the wish for peace. Peace.
Yajoy lost her consciousness and wasn't able anymore to protect
Yamori who begand to hear voices too. Kind voices. Voices which
promised him a lot. He would never have to decide between his queen
and humans. Yajoy would understand him. Finally he could rule over
humans again. Power. The truth. Humans were just monkeys. Stupid
monkeys. It doesn't matter what Yajoy said. Why fightening against
them if you could control them with your own power? The voices could
give him the power. He wanted it. Need it.
All his friends were gone. Fireball felt lonely and weak. If Yamori
would also been infected he had no chance. What would happen to him
then? How could he alone beat Nemesis and save his friends and
You can't beat us. Do you want to see your dad again? The voice asked
and Fireball looked up shoked by the words of Nemesis. Don't listen
to him he thought.
You can decide wether he shall live or not Fireball. Give up and both
of you will meet again. He loves you very much. He would give up for
That's not true Fireball thought. His dad died a long time ago. He
lost his life in the first war against the outriders. But suddenly
pictures came up to him. His dad was still alive. Somewhere outthere.
It was possible. To meet him he should surrender. No. Never. He would
fight. Perhaps he had a little chance to win. He had to try. But
those voices were terrible.
Fireball didn't realize that it wasn't Nemesis any longer who talked
to him but one of his warriors. Soon it would be over. When the last
human was overtaken.
Chapter 8: Samantha
Although it seemed to be over there were still three persons alive.
Two of them were meeting on planet Far the same time the outriders
beat up the Star Sheriffs. Snake worried a lot when talking to Jean
about what was happening. If the stories were true humans had almost
no chance. But Jean was sure there was one person outthere who could
"I thought this person is Jesse." Snake meant thoughtfully.
"For a long time I thought so too. But that would be to easy."
"My power isn't strong enough. I don't know any outrider except Jesse
who would have a chance. Probably the strangers can help but our
legends don't hint to something like that."
"Perhaps the legends are wrong."
"They don't say that it can't be a human who will resist."
Jean shook his head. "Trista is to weak. You? Possible. But we have
to be sure. And we must find Jesse anyways. He has Nemesis body. Only
with his help we can redo the transformation prozess and..."
Suddenly they were interrupted by Jesses voice which appeared in
We won't redo the prozess
"Jesse. It's you. Glad to see you alive." Snake started to welcome
Snake we are free. As long as we let Nemesis do what he wants he will
let us alone. We can finally live a life without fear. No wars. No
battles. Peace. Snake we have what we wanted.
"We haven't. And if we have for which prize? You give up your liberty
Jesse. Didn't you realize? He uses you."
NO. He can't. Everything will be okay Snake.Ah!. Who tries...
Jesse sank down on the sand.
Go out of my head Jean. What do you want? Why? You hurt me.
"What are you doing to him?" Snake asked worried but Jean didn't care
The fight between Jesse and Jean didn't take a long time cause he got
help pretty soon by Nemesis.
Snake heard again Jesses voice in his head and it was difficult to
resist his friend. He wanted to believe and follow him. Help him. But
he also wanted to stay free.
When Nemesis turned in the fight Jean got a real problem. Of course
he knew about using the old abilities and probably he was the one who
had the most chances to resist Nemesis. But Nemesis lived much longer
then him and his abilities were as good as his one when he was as
young as himself. Now Nemesis was to powerful. Hopefully the legends
were true and outthere was a human or an outrider who could and would
It was almost over. The galaxy was under his conrol. All humans and
outriders under his control. Even Jean the most powerful of his
soldiers. But then there was something new. He felt the presence of
something new. What was it? He didn't understand but he wanted to
find out. What an interesting aura? Who? Something happened to him.
Something he didn't understand. He could see at each place and he
tried to see the person who he felt. Emotions? Could it be that he
could feel? Now? No, nobody taught him. But he had to discover the
new. Planet Far. Outhere in the dessert somebody was walking. Someone
he didn't control yet.
The wind blew through her long black hair. Her skin was darker than
of most humans (not black but brown) and she weared a white overall
which reflected the sun. She seemed to be hurt by something. Probably
she fought against his warriors. Resisted. A new challenge. She was
weak but also strong. Strange. He couldn't do something but only
watching her. Making her way to Snakes home. Did she know him?
Probably not. She wanted to escape. But he could find them
everywhere. He could not control her. Never. He didn't want to.
Suddenly he remembered all the thoughts of the people he managed to
control. Their hopes, their fear, their love for other people.
Emotions. The only reason for him beeing unable to control her that
his feelings hindered him. It came back to him.
For a long time nobody could show him how to feel. Humans were
unuseful he thought cause they couldn't teach him the most important
thing he wanted to know since he met them. But this girl managed to
teach him only with her appearance. She was human but that didn't
matter to him. He was the outriders leader and he could make laws as
he wished. For her he would change them. It was new and it was great.
It was the ultimative power.
He knew everything. No, not quite. To know everything he had to go
back into his body. He need to be a live not only existing. He wanted
to know her name, to talk to her and he wanted her to know who he was
how he looked like and he hoped she wouldn't be afraid of an
What had he done to his people and to the human race? All he wanted
was peace but with separating emotions from brain he created perfect
warriors and new wars started when they met humans. Nemesis felt sad
and weak but the love for the girl walking through the dessert helped
him to get his strenght back. Soon he would be the old again and
together with Jesse and his friends he could start a new beginning.
For most outriders, like him, and most humans, like the Star
Sheriffs, it would be difficult. But it was possible. He had to try.
She didn't know how long she walked through the dessert since she
left the last city. People started to become crazy and her dad told
her that it was the power of nature which came to revenge for the
wars and the destruction humans did the last years.
The power of the outriders was probably only a symbol for the natures
revenge. But outriders wouldn't win. Humans never won against the
power of nature and outriders wouldn't to. Bevor her dad joined
Cavalry Command to train new Star Sheriffs he lived with her and his
tribe on planet Far. She was his hear.
Instead of him she learned the old abilities of native americans,
which didn't only include to heal, to know the way of living in
harmony with nature but also abilities to see what white people
couldn't see, what modern people couldn't see.
Humanity lost those abilities within the years her teacher said. But
native americans still use and take care of the abilities to
understand visions and dreams, to realize cosmic connections, to know
the secrets of life and nature and to have the ability to feel what
others felt, to see insider other people and knowing how to help them
to find the right way for their own future.
She tried to save her people but she couldn't resist for them. Now
she was on her way through dessert to ask nature for help. Suddenly
she felt the presence of somebody else outthere in the dry land. But
as fast it came as fast it vanished. For a short time she had a
There was a hole which looked like an appartement inside. A phantom
chamber, she didn't know where she ever heard this word and why she
compared it to the picture she had of whatever, was standing in the
hole. An outrider a human and someone who seemed to be both were
standing around the phantom chamber. It opened and inthere was a
young man, not much older than herself in a darkblue overall. From
far away someone was calling her name.
Perhaps it was a sign. She would follow this vision and try to find
the place where the phantom chamber was standing. Perhaps this could
help her people.
There it was. Not far away from the place which was known as Snakes
Rock by her people and the one who used to live out there.
Lots of people thought he wasn't a human himself. Less was known by
his past. Only that he used to work for Cavalry Command and it was
said that once when he was a child his home was visited by outriders.
He had an outrider brother people said.
But the native Americans thought he was the heir of the Snake people.
A long time ago their legends told the Snake Rock was inhabited by
people half human half reptile. Perhaps they were just an experiment
which was stopped because of some reason.
One day those people mixed up with humans and now there was only few
left who were real heirs of those Snake people as they were called in
The young woman walked on to the place she met Snake the first time.
Infront of his home lots of Snakes could be seen. From out of the
whole a blue light was shining. Carefully she walked in.
The scene inside remembered her to her vision. Snake and two young
outrider commanders stood beside some sort of phantom chamber. She
didn't knew why she knew but somehow she knew that it was a phantom
Insider the chamber somebody was sleeping. When she came in Snake
looked at her surprised.
"Samantha? You?" Somehow Snake felt that she was the one they waited
for. A human woman. Probably this had been the only possibility.
Nemesis had to fall in love with somebody, had to discover why it was
needful to have a body. Something new would come up.
Almost the same time humans and outriders woke up from their trance.
At first they didn't know what happened at what was going on. Humans
stopped fighting when seeing their enemies confused and acting in a
more human way. Emotions and feelings were coming back and lots of
warriors had problems to deal with them. For a long time they lost
their feelings and from one second to the other they found what they
had been searching for a long time. It was new, it was great but it
was also frightening. All outriders, except those ones who were on
Lamari started to go back to vapor zone. They had to reorganize
themselves. Beside it was the first time they were really free.
On Lamari the situation changed fast. When the Star Sheriffs were
realizing that the outriders lost the control over them they
continued the battle. Trista, Snowcone and Robin didn't like their
attitude. It was hard to tell them that also the outriders had only
been prisoners and were controlled by somebody.
The battles should finally be stopped. It was Yajoy who talked to
Saber and tried to organize a cease fire. But it was still a long way
First steps could be made in the time of reorganisation. The
outriders and humans would surely not trust in each other and it was
hard to tell people who were used to the war that from now on they
had to live in peace together.
But there was hope again. With the help of Yajoy and Jesse's secret
outrider organization the way to peace could be built. In the end it
would be not only the decision of Cavalry Command and Nemesis if
peace was possible but of all people in New Frontier.
They had to forgive each other and they had to trust in a new way of
live. Everything could change.
With Nemesis getting back his feelings a new time could begin. If
only few people believed in it it could be realized.
The change of the outriders could make humans change too. And perhaps
Yajoy could bring peace to this time as she brought to her time too.
Nemesis felt the changing. Something new and interesting was coming
up. He would never feel bored again. Finally he knew how humans
worked that out to be happy to have fun. It was good to come to this
dimension. Humans could give him back what he lost. Jesse was right.
It was a mistake to separate the soul into to parts. To forbid
feelings. To take away emotions from the outriders. They created
perfect warriors instead of bringing peace to their people. He never
wanted that. He felt regret and sorrow. His poor people. What had he
done to them. From now on he would live for his ideals again. Perhaps
he was idealistic again and had lots of dreams. But dreams weren't
bad. A new, a better time would begin and he would take care of the
future. The wars of the past should never repeat as they almost
repeated itself if they didn't repeat already. If he could change his
mind towards humans, perhaps his people could also do and perhaps
humans could do so too.
