"He must be a collector. They're desperate men."
- an archaeological dig leader (to a foreman curious about their attacker's identity)
As a doctor and his workers pull several 30 million old bones which
have not undergone the fossilization process out of pools of oil, Wild
Weasel flies his Cobra plane above the archeological dig and fires at the
people on the ground. The men scatter and the doctor asks the foreman if
they have paid off all of the government officials.
The foreman tells the doctor that they have made all the right bribes
and Wild Weasel lands, picks up a few bones and flies away after placing
a radio call to let Cobra headquarters know that the first part of the
plan is complete.
Inside a building at Massey Laboratory, Dr. Massey stands behind a table
and announces to the audience that they are about to find out whether they
have accomplished a miracle or squandered their investors’ money. An egg
inside a glass box cracks and Dr. Massey, who is standing behind the table,
picks up a garden snake and declares the cloning project a success. However,
Roberts, a Cobra agent who is wearing a communicator watch, signals a FANG
and the Crimson Guard Commanders tell the FANG pilot to proceed.
Roberts strips off his lab coat in order to reveal his Crimson Guard
uniform, congratulates Dr. Massey on behalf of Cobra, grabs the man and
after the Cobra FANG destroys the wall behind Roberts, a net is dropped
onto the pair and they are whisked away.
Under foggy skies, Scarlett, Gung Ho and Roadblock listen to Flint explain
that the Intelligence Department believes that Cobra has an island in the
South Pacific where experiments on cloning dinosaurs are taking place.
Gung Ho scoffs at the idea of dinosaurs roaming the land again, however,
Scarlett walks up to Gung Ho, places a hand on his shoulder and reminds
him: “Cobra has an irritating habit of doing the impossible.” Roadblock
counters that the dinosaurs will need at least 30 years to grow up and
become dangerous, which is just in time for the Joes’ retirement. Airtight
enters the room and burns down Roadblock’s attempts at levity as he tells
the Joes that Dr. Massey has also developed a rapid growth serum, and Roadblock
is so impressed and worried that he replies, “Whoa! Instant monster.”
Deep Six radios Flint that he has found a weird island that is not on
the map. Flint tells Deep Six that the entire planet has been mapped, but
a Cobra Rattler appears and Deep Six dives into the ocean. Flint promises
to send help before Deep Six can say - “Over and out,” Deep Six says, beating
Flint to his own reply.
Radar dishes swivel, missile launchers turn and Crimson Guards drive
Cobra Ferrets on the island. Inside a base, Destro looks at the bug-infested
swamp and listens to Cobra Commander tell him that the world was once ruled
by reptiles and will soon be again, but the reptile in power will be Cobra.
Destro turns from the windows and explains that he doesn’t see any wisdom
in Cobra Commander’s plan, but Cobra Commander turns to Tomax and Xamot,
who explain that they have acquired the bones and one “slightly used scientific
genius in a disposable container.” As the twins laugh at their joke, Cobra
Commander tells Dr. Massey that he has enough bones to create an infinite
number of dinosaurs and suggests that the doctor start right away. “Infinity
is a very big number,” Cobra Commander adds.
Gung Ho, Scarlett and Flint each fly a Skystriker to search for the
island and Gung Ho believes they have found the place since the island
looks weird to him. While Dr. Massey scraps the bones under the watchful
eyes of Destro and Cobra Commander, an alarm in the base is heard as the
Joes fly over the island. Cobra’s missile defense shoot down the Skystrikers
and Gung Ho and Scarlett bail out. However, Flint is unable to eject because
his controls are locked.
