After some dispensing of greetings, to which Spockeh was generally stunned he was greeting his characters, the crew, all-be-it in a round-about fashion, ended up settling in the living-room where the discussion on how they got there began.

"I don't think you guys ending up in my realm/reality is a mistake or some random act of Mother Nature. I think someone worked to make this happen." Spockeh said. He was standing near the fireplace in full view of the crew.

"Yeah, but the problem is: Why did that person bring us here and how?" Trucker asked. Trucker was heavy set, looking like a football running back, and knew just about everything there was to know about vehicles, thus the name.

"Exactly, now characters both good and bad have been crossing over into this reality so something obviously went wrong." Digger commented. Digger was built like Trucker but had an adventurous gleam in his eyes. And he always had a way out of every bad situation the group got into.

"Indeed. So any hypotheses?" Spockeh asked.

"Black magic!" Scorch exclaimed smiling. He looked like every normal teenager except for his hair which was a fiery mixture of red, yellow and orange that made it look like it was on fire.

"No, Voodoo!" Ninja replied. Ninja was of slight build but that worked to his advantage. He was an expert on sneaking up on people or into secure places.

"What about a Stargate type-thing?" Bugger suggested. Bugger was like your average teen nerd, except for he hid it really well. But if you got him started on anything tech, be ready for a long dissertation.

"No, that wouldn't work," Spockeh replied, "If he/she used a Stargate to facilitate your arrival/departure, then all the characters should be ending up in the same place, not scattered about the globe."

Finally the last member of the group spoke, "What about the Space-Time Continuum?" Phoenix asked. The only girl in the group, she was viewed as the only voice of reason keeping the crew from going insane.

The crew, minus her, gasped. The S.T.C. (Space Time Continuum) was, in nerd/geek circles, not to be lightly mentioned when something bad went on. It was basically taboo to do so and was only mentioned when something really really bad/peculiar happened that changed everything. And thus, the group quieted down to listen to her explanation/theory.

"We've been thinking of this problem in terms of someone trying to link sentient realms, Spockeh's, with non-sentient realms, ours. But what if it's totally different? What if it's linking two sentient realms together?" She questioned.

"I see where you're going with this," Spockeh said. He had an inkling, but not much more, "So what you're saying is that someone has been able to open up a hole in the S.T.C. in order for characters to move through it into my realm." Phoenix nodded in reply.

"But what would this have to do with solving the problem?" Scorch asked.

Spockeh, now understanding where Phoenix was going, replied, "It changes the entire ball-game. Instead of trying to destroy/end some-sort of gateway or an incantation that would facilitate your arrival, we now have to mend something in Space-time which is much much more difficult."

"Well, what can we do about it?" Bugger asked.

Spockeh shrugged his shoulders, "Really nothing right now. We have no idea what or who is causing this crossing-over to happen. All we can do right now is try to round up as many villains that have crossed over into this realm as we can. That way we might be able to find the ones responsible and make them end this silliness.” The group nodded in agreement, it was crazy and far-fetched, but possible.

“Ok, now that we just figured out the possible reason this all happened, what are we going to do next?” Scorch asked.

“We wait, until I get off the phone with Ash. We’ll figure out where to go from there.” Spockeh said. He had a bad feeling in his gut, he didn’t know exactly why, but he felt that something bad was about to happen, and they were right in the middle of it. He just hoped they’d be ready for it when it happened.

The End
