I am not asking for information that is to come on a show...as there is no show anymore.
I come as a Dad--I have a lasso in hand, and the moon in sight...my task: impossible; my course--but to try.
My six year old daughter, on a day when the TV went out, found my (now grown and moved away) son's collection of 'Roughneck: Starship Troopers Chronicles' DVD's. I said if she was interested she could watch them, but warned that the series was canceled before it was finished; so there would be no ending.
Okay, so maybe you can see where this is going, I was aware they had scripted the concluding episodes (my son was always sure they would get made), but I never realized that, after all these years, some transcripted form of the teleplay wasn't readily available on the Internet. Until now.
So...I have a daughter who is only a few weeks out from finishing the produced show, who has that dreamy attachment that I've seen before with Pokémon, and My Little Pony--and, as I continually try to ease her towards the fact that there will be no ending, I have to listen to her reassure me that, "Don't worry, dada, we will just have to read what happens in the ending; no big deal. We'll find the story in a book, or on the Internet." But I've looked, and I haven't found it.
MY QUESTION: Is it out there somewhere...?
Being a Dad is tough, but when you're on the line and you've got your orders, you charge the bugs. Moon or not, my lasso is up and away...live forever, apes!
I sympathize. Honestly. But I don't think I'm going to be able to provide those for you.
The main reason is that I don't own them.
But a secondary reason is that ASK GREG is not a good forum for posting teleplays. The formatting goes to hell, and it takes me a long time to go through them to make them even legible. And they're still badly formatted.
Finally, I don't have them here at my Nickelodeon office. So even if I was so inclined, I don't have them to post.
In summary, the Hawaiian battle continues. There's a big pit. A lot of bugs. Humanity triumphs.
