Baby Intelligence felt very excited as he finally sat down at his desk and tilted the microphone. "S.M.S.B members, please join me in the office," he announced. It was time to ambush the NoHeads; it had been a month since his fight with Sebiscuits.
Paige, Baby Strength, and Force Baby were all playing Uno when the announcement was spoken.
"C'mon," said Paige, setting her 8 remaining cards on the table. Baby Strength has pretty much won anyway...
Force Baby and Baby Strength followed Paige to the meeting room where they all took their seats.
Sitting at the front, Baby Intelligence cleared his throat. "Mr. Stupid NoHead is this meeting's subject...it's been a long time since we fought them." He raised a fist. "We must strike back!"
Paige was the first to reply. "Actually, I want to face him. He's going to pay for seducing Sebiscuits!" Otherwise he'd be here right now. It feels kind of empty without him here...
Peter sighed. She doesn't get it, does she? "Revenge isn't our way," he told her for the umpteenth time. "We need to win for the good of all!" He paused. "I've got it! Here is what we must do..."
Rotta and Hell Burnbottom were both sitting at the front of the base where the security cameras were. Rotta frowned as four skyfighers picked up on the scope.
Just then, NoHead arrived. "What's going on?"
"The S.M.S.B. is here!" Rotta replied. How did he know? Then again, he always knows, and that is why he's the Master.
"Send all our forces into the sky!" NoHead replied. Rotta hesitated, and NoHead pushed the button instead to call their robot fighters to action. "They will not survive this..."
Laser beams flashed around Peter's skyfighter. Around him, his pupils had broken off to engage the robotic fleet as Baby Intelligence broke off for the base. Six fighters closed in on his fighter, but he blew them up with ease.
Paige rushed headlong into the cloud of fighters, easily avoiding laser blasts as she went. Baby Strength and Force Baby had the Pinewood Derby. Baby Strength drove while Force Baby stood as gunner.
Several minutes into the battle, Baby Intelligence noticed a way to get inside. "Everyone, fire missiles to the left of the base!"
"But Master, there's nothing to blast," Force Baby protested.
"Do it now!" Peter snarled.
All three ships fired. The missiles caused a huge explosion that blew up the fence and swept up at least 30 fighters.
"The fence is down! Congrats!" said Baby Intelligence as he watched the explosion clear. "Commence attack on the base! Land your ships!"
Suddenly, he noticed NoHead's fighter streaking toward them. NoHead had come to intercede his fleet. "Wait! It's Mr. Stupid NoHead! Go! Go! He's mine!"
With that Baby Intelligence opened fire. NoHead exchanged fire, and laser blast went flying across the air in a heated battle. Finally Peter clipped his enemy's wing. "Gotcha!"
But before it could spin out of control, a parachute ejected from the top of NoHead's fighter, slowing it and regaining control. The parachute retracted and was replaced by a laser cannon, which fired rapidly. The barrage hammered Peter's fighter, badly denting the hull. Baby Intelligence looked out the window toward the closest dent before giving chase again. He activated his targeting computer. NoHead's fighter streaked around the center until it reached the center. "Now I have you!" Baby Intelligence said, and fired. NoHead's ship disappeared...and reappeared farther away and out of range.
Baby Intelligence followed, still focused on his targeting computer. NoHead's fighter streaked every-which-way but didn't chart a course. "Come on..." Peter mumbled.
"I can't get this door open!" said Paige.
The others had already landed, unscathed from the battle above. It was Paige's idea to cut a ring in the door so they could climb through.
"Maybe I can try," Force Baby suggested automatically.
"Your bullets just bounced off!" Paige shouted as she turned to Force Baby. "You'll just fail again!"
"Oh yeah?" Force Baby countered.
Before their argument could accelerate any further, NoHead's ship zoomed past them, so close that it blew Paige's hair. Is that...?
Peter's ship zoomed by a moment later. That's Peter! She puled out her comlink and spoke into it. "Peter? You've been up there a long time. Are you OK?"
"Don't worry, Paige," said Baby Intelligence from inside his fighter. "I've got it covered. And I found a way to get you in!"
Huh? "A way?" Paige asked as the two fighters did another loop around the base.
Instead of answering, Peter rotated the laser cannons on his ship so it could blow up the now unshielded door. "There you go!"
Paige turned to see the wreckage. "Let's go!" she shouted.
Two more laps and NoHead flew inside the exposed base. Peter was quick to follow. He opened fire as the fighters streaked down a large hall. NoHead's ship disappeared again. Baby Intelligence remained alert, expecting to see it regenerate at the edge...and it didn't. "Where is he?" he wondered aloud. Then it hit him. "I'd better go help my forces!" He scowled slightly as he flew toward the lobby. Paige, Baby Strength, and Force Baby were far more than that to him.
