Part I: Wet Feet

Transcript

Para Ventura:It still flies, the annie-plant safely cranks out gravy at eighty percent. There's got to be something we can do with it.
Kevyn:Ooh, I just thought of something. We feed this baby into Fabber One for parts and watch him chew.
Captain Tagon:Kevyn, the grav-catcher under Eatonrun was sabotaged. Can you and Ensign Ventura cook up a replacement? Something with heavy-duty gravy?
Para Ventura:I bet I can turn this tank into a longshoreman with no fabber cycles at all. Just stuff off your shelves.
Kevyn:No bet. Off my shelf, you could turn this tank into the longshoreman of the apocalypse.
