ACT 2 - SCENE 3
 *

ORBIT OF MARS
(Much activity as the Planet Council study read-outs and computers preparing for war.)

Mars Control Room

MARS
Terrance, there is communication coming in from the outer planets. It is Lord Jupiter. He is calling for a peace mediation to commence upon our arrival.

TERRANCE
Ignore the request, Mars! It must be a trick to spot our location. We are going in and we are going in hard.

MARS
Oh, yes! A pitched battle!

VENUS
Terrance, is it not possible that Lord Jupiter's intentions are indeed to petition for peace? Would it not be wise to hear him out?

TERRANCE
Come now, Venus! Lord Jupiter has taken from me the only thing I ever cared about. Now he will pay dearly for his transgression!

VENUS
You are in charge of tactical planning for the Council so I will not challenge you, but have you considered, perhaps, that Luna has run away and does not wish to be followed. She did leave with Galileo... on her own...

TERRANCE
Run away..? (pause) Impossible! We continue as planned.
