Deep Space Negotiator
Chapter 1: Not Your Usual Negotiators
A large fleet of space ships of some unknown origin begins to see Earth upon its horizon. Meanwhile, back on the same targeted blue planet, a top general from Nowhere is meeting with members of the local military installation in secret.
"General, we're running out of time, the invasion force is approaching, what are your options?" asked one of the general's superiors who was in the dark shadows.
"This is quite top secret, I don't think the public should be known about this, yet at least" replied the general, "but perhaps we could likely get some locals here in Nowhere to be our negotiators for us."
"Who would you have in mind?" asked another superior.
The scene then quickly switches to a farm house in the middle of nowhere, where Courage the Cowardly Dog was happily chewing one of Eustace's favorite boots. As Courage continued to chew away, he was quite unaware that Eustace was right in front of him without the other pair of boots.
"Stupid dog, you're chewing on my favorite working boot!" cried Eustace to which he then took out his usual scary mask and scared the little pink dog, to which Eustace responded by laughing as Courage ran right inside the house.
Muriel then noticed Courage running right toward her as she was in the kitchen doing her usual recipe.
"Courage, why don't you try my newest recipe" said Muriel as she fed him some of it to which Courage began to have a spicy sensation within his mouth.
Courage immediately then tried to find some water nearby his food bowl and drank it all to which Eustace laughed at Courage as he came into the scene.
"Stupid dog, looks like Muriel's new recipe got to you first!" cried Eustace with joy.
"And just what's wrong with my new recipe, why don't you take a taste for yourself then?" asked Muriel as she then forcibly fed him the strange sauce she was cooking up.
Eustace then immediately could feel the spicy sauce going throughout his body, and like Courage went to try to find water to cool off. Meanwhile, outside the farm house, a limo stopped right at the front door to which the general and some soldiers got out and rang the doorbell.
"I'll get it" said Muriel as she headed for the front door, as she opened the door, she noticed that Nowhere's local military general was there to greet her, "and what can I do for you General?"
"Earth is in a situation that would require your help" replied the General.
"What do you mean by that?" asked Muriel.
"We need you, along with your husband and your dog to be our, er negotiators to prevent an alien invasion of our planet" replied the General.
"Oh my" replied Muriel with such astonishment.
"And we're going to have you, your husband and that pink dog of yours to head to meet with the leader of the invasion force immediately" added the General.
The scene then immediately switches to a space shuttle from NASA to which Courage along with Muriel and Eustace where in astronaut suits heading to a strange large ship of unknown origin.
"Stupid military forcing us to be negotiators for some stupid alien invaders" said Eustace in quite a huff.
"I'm probably sure we can quickly reason with the alien invaders, I'm sure they're friendly" said Muriel.
"I'm not going to buy this one bit, or my name isn't Han Solo and it's not" added Courage.
Suddenly the large space shuttle was then pulled into the large space ship with some sort of a tractor beam. The shuttle then was placed right into the hangar bay of the large ship where robots of some unknown origin were ready with their weapons to greet them.
"Oh my!" cried Muriel as she along with Eustace and Courage put up their hands.
"Stupid stinking robots, I knew it was them trying to invade us!" added Eustace.
"Quiet Eustace, we're here as negotiators to stop them from invading our home" said Muriel.
"Aw, you three have arrived just like that general from Nowhere told me you would" said a dark figure in the background as he became clearer, it was none other than Dark Laser.
"So, who are you anyway?" asked Muriel.
"I am Dark Laser, Galactic Overlord and it seems your planet is ripe for conquest!" laughed Dark Laser to which he showed a little toy dog in his hand, "isn't that right Flipsy?"
"This is the dangerous leader of the invasion force that stupid General was talking about?" asked Eustace with such anger and astonishment, "He's nothing more than a loser playing with some dumb stupid dog toy!"
"That's it!" cried Dark Laser as he signaled his robotic soldiers to blow up the shuttle to which Muriel, Eustace and Courage came on, "Destroy their shuttle, so that they can be given the message!"
The robotic soldiers then turned on their advance weapons to the space shuttle and fired rapidly at it, destroying it completely. Courage couldn't believe how much Eustace had put Muriel and himself endanger with a new villain such as Dark Laser.
"Oh my!" cried Muriel, "How the heck are we going to get home?!"
"If you do what I say" replied Dark Laser, "I might allow you to go home, that is if your husband here doesn't say anything else stupid about Flipsy."
"And where do we stay for the time being?" asked Muriel.
"Take them to the guest room" replied Dark Laser to his robotic soldiers, "I have certainly something quite in store for them!"
As Dark Laser's robotic soldiers took Courage, Muriel and Eustace away to their so-called guest rooms, Courage knew he had to find a way to get out along with to stop the invasion altogether, or things would be quite grim for him, Muriel and Eustace.
"I just have to find away out of here or we're doomed!" cried Courage to himself.
"Get in your guest rooms" said one of the robotic soldiers to Muriel, Courage and Eustace as they were shoved right into it and the doors locked up.
