The Nomad saga is the first segment of Dragon Ball: The Mrovian Series.
Chapter 1: The Son of DogomEdit
<THE SCENE OPENS WITH THE CAMERA ZOOMED VERY CLOSE TO THE GROUND OF DIRT AND SAND; A SINGLE DROP OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE WATER HITS THE GROUND; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE FACE OF A BOY WITH SHORT BLACK HAIR FROM BELOW, SWEATING AND SOMEWHAT BRUISED; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE BOY’S ENTIRE BODY; HE IS ON HIS KNEES, BENDING FORWARD, WITH HIS HANDS ON THE GROUND AND ARMS SUPPORTING HIS TORSO; HE IS WEARING ARMOR OF THE PLANET TRADE ORGANIZATION, WHITE TRIMMED WITH GOLD, AND HAS THE TAIL OF A SAIYAN>
Girl (UNSEEN): Is that all?
<THE BOY DOES NOT RESPOND AND CONTINUES TO STARE AT THE GROUND FOR A FEW MORE SECONDS; HE THEN LOOKS UP TO SEE THE GIRL WALKING TOWARDS HIM; SHE IS ALSO A SAIYAN WEARING ARMOR, DARK BLUE TRIMMED WITH GOLD; BEHIND HER IS AN OUTDOOR DESERT-LIKE LANDSCAPE; THE BOY THEN GETS UP ON ONE KNEE AND THEN LUNGES AT THE GIRL WITH A FLYING SIDE KICK; THE GIRL SIDESTEPS THE ATTACK AND THROWS A PUNCH; THE BOY NARROWLY DUCKS THE PUNCH AS HE TURNS AROUND TO FACE HIS OPPONENT; BOTH THEN PROCEED TO DANCE AROUND EACH OTHER, REPEATEDLY THROWING AND EVADING STRIKES>
<EVENTUALLY, THE BOY SUCCESSFULLY LANDS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE GIRL’S WAIST, ALTHOUGH THE ATTACK DOES NOT FAZE THE GIRL MUCH; AFTER A FEW MORE EXCHANGES, THE GIRL LANDS A HOOK ACROSS THE BOY’S FACE, AND THEN FOLLOWS UP WITH A KNEE TO HIS ABDOMEN, CAUSING HIM TO BUCKLE OVER; WITH HER OPPONENT ON THE GROUND, THE GIRL THEN RAISES A PALM AT HIM>
Woman: Chaiva, wait!
<JUST AS THE BOY LOOKS UP, CHAIVA UNLEASHES A POINT-BLANK BLUE KI BLAST THAT ENGULFS HIS ENTIRE BODY; WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS, THE BOY IS SEVERAL TENS OF METERS AWAY, ON HIS BACK INSIDE THE VALLEY CHAIVA HAD JUST CREATED; CHAIVA THEN TURNS TO LOOK AT THE ADULT FEMALE SAIYAN WHO WAS SUPERVISING THE SPARRING MATCH; SHE IS NONE OTHER THAN OCRA FROM DRAGON BALL: THE GREAT WAR>
Ocra: That was not necessary!
Chaiva: Why not?
Ocra: It’s one thing to defeat your opponent in sparring, but it’s another to humiliate him.
Chaiva: I don’t see your point. It was Cuber who challenged me in the first place. He deserved his defeat.
<OCRA SIGHS BEFORE SHE AND CHAIVA FLY TO CUBER, SITS UP AND DUSTS HIMSELF OFF>
Ocra: Good. We need to talk.
Chaiva: About what?
Ocra: As you already know, it is time for you two do begin your service to Lord Frieza. Your first mission is in seven days, and you will have other children joining you. As the strongest member of this new team, I expect you to lead them to victory, Chaiva.
Chaiva: I can handle myself, mother. <LOOKS AT CUBER> I don’t need anyone dragging me down.
Ocra: Enough! You have grown strong and your enemies will be weaker than you, but they are not to be underestimated. If you cannot get along, let alone trust each other, you will not survive out there. Understand?
Cuber: <WITH UNCERTAINTY> Yes.
Chaiva: <EYEROLL> Fine.
Ocra: You will be given details of your mission when the time comes. I will now take my leave; I am needed elsewhere. Use these next several days to prepare yourselves.
Chaiva: Understood, mother.
<OCRA TAKES OFF>
Chaiva: <LOOKS AT CUBER> Pathetic – a super-elite and utterly useless.
Cuber: <ANGRILY> I’m better than most of the other kids!
Chaiva: But you still lost to me and always have. No matter how many times you challenge me, I will always win.
Cuber: <MUTTERING UNDER HIS BREATH> We’ll see about that.
<CUTS TO NIGHTTIME, INSIDE A PLANET TRADE ORGANIZATION BUILDING; CUBER IS ALONE IN THE DARKNESS AND WALKS UP TO SOME CONTROLS; WHEN HE ACTIVATES THE CONTROLS, A ONE-WAY MIRROR LIGHTS UP IN FRONT OF HIM; HE THEN WALKS AWAY FROM THE CONTROLS AND ENTERS THE ROOM OF THE ONE-WAY MIRROR; IT IS CLEAR THAT THE ROOM IS FOR TRAINING AND CUBER SET IT TO HAVE GREATER THAN PLANET VEGETA’S GRAVITY; CUBER THROWS MANY PUNCHES, KICKS, AND ENERGY BLASTS INTO THE AIR, AND STRUGGLES INTENSELY TO DO SO; CUBER EVENTUALLY COLLAPSES FROM EXHAUSTION AND IS UNABLE TO GET UP; HOWEVER, WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, THE EXTRA GRAVITY IS LIFTED AND THE DOOR TO THE ROOM OPENS>
Ocra: I’m glad you’re taking your mission very seriously. You’re the only kid who’s using the gravity room without supervision.
Cuber: <WEAKLY> It’s because I’m still too weak. No matter how much I try, I’m always behind.
Ocra: If this is about Chaiva, she’s older than you. Of course you can’t beat her yet.
Cuber: But I’m the son of Dogom! And I’m already stronger than some adults!
Ocra: That is true, which is why you’ll eventually as strong as Chaiva if not stronger. When your father returns, I will make sure he knows how much you’re improving. For now, get some rest. If you need to use the gravity room again, go right ahead.
<THE SCENE THEN SWITCHES TO THE DAY OF THE MISSION; OCRA IS SEEN STANDING BEFORE CHAIVA, CUBER, AND FIVE OTHER SAIYAN CHILDREN, ALL OF WHOM ARE ABOUT THE SAME AGE AS THE OTHER TWO; UNLIKE IN THE FIRST SCENE, EACH SAIYAN IS WEARING A SCOUTER>
Ocra: Listen up! Today will be your first chance to show off what you can do. The planet we are about to invade has an intelligent species that has united under its own government. Your mission is to force the enemy to surrender. Once they yield, let me know. I will handle the rest. Are you ready?
All Saiyan Children: Yes ma’am!
Ocra: Good. Chaiva, remember what I told you.
Chaiva: Yes, mother.
<THE SAIYANS EACH ENTER HIS/HER RESPECTIVE SPACE POD, WHICH THEN TAKE OFF INTO SPACE>
<THE SCENE CUTS TO THE PODS APPROACHING THE TARGET PLANET; THE PODS SOON ENTER THE ATMOSPHERE, GLOWING WITH THE HEAT OF INTENSE FRICTION; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE SURFACE, SHOWING THE NATIVE MILITARY, CONSISTING OF INFANTRY ARMED WITH ALIEN RIFLES ACCOMPANIED BY TANKS, MOBILIZING; THE SAIYAN PODS THEN IMPACT THE SURFACE, ONE AT A TIME, SURROUNDED BY THE PREPARED NATIVES; THE PODS OPEN IN THE ORDER THEY LANDED IN AND EACH SAIYAN STEPS OUT; THE NATIVES HOLD THEIR FIRE, UNSURE OF WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE INTRUDERS>
Ocra: Your mission starts now.
<THE SAIYAN CHILDREN IMMEDIATELY FIRE OFF ENERGY WAVE VOLLEYS, INSTANTLY VAPORIZING ANY INFANTRY THEY STRIKE, WHILE SEVERALLY DAMAGING IF NOT OUTRIGHT DESTROYING ANY TANKS CAUGHT IN THE BARRAGES; WHAT FEW SURVIVING FORCES FIRE UPON THE SAIYANS FOR THE FEW SECONDS THEY REMAIN STANDING, UNTIL THEY TOO ARE ELIMINATED; CHAIVA SMIRKS WHILE THE REST OF THE CHILDREN CHEER AT THEIR FIRST VICTORY>
Ocra: Well done. Now use your scouters to find the capital. It will have the most readings.
<EACH SAIYAN CHILD TAPS HIS/HER SCOUTER UNTIL ONE BEEPS FIRST>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: <POINTS> Over there! About 500 kilometers away!
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: Then let’s go!
<ALL BUT CUBER AND OCRA TAKE OFF>
Cuber: Are you coming with us?
Ocra: This mission is for you, so I will not be. Good luck out there, Cuber.
<THE SCENE CUTS TO THE CHILDREN FLYING TOWARDS THEIR DESTINATION>
<THE OTHER CHILDREN TURN TO LOOK AT CHAIVA BEFORE HEEDING HER COMMAND>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: What?
Chaiva: Before we keep going, let me make one thing clear. When we reach the capital, you can do whatever you want. Just stay out of my way.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: What’s that supposed to mean?
Chaiva: You heard me. The rest of you will only slow me down if you interfere. You got a problem?
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: I do! You can’t just hog everything to yourself.
Other Saiyan Children: <NODDING IN AGREEMENT> Yeah!
Chaiva: I said you can do what you want, as long as you keep your distance.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: You might be the leader, but that doesn’t mean you can just boss us around.
Chaiva: If you want to challenge me, by all means, bring it on.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: We can all take her.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: I don’t think that’s a good idea. She’s a lot stronger than us.
Cuber: Stop! Whether or not you like it, Chaiva is still our leader. We still have to obey her commands. Besides, we’re supposed to be fighting aliens, not each other.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: So you’re defending her now?
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 4: He’s right. Let her do what she wants. We’re here for the mission anyway.
<THE OTHER SAIYAN CHILDREN MUTTER TO EACH OTHER>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: <GRUDGINGLY> Fine.
Chaiva: We’ve waste enough time here already. <TAKES OFF>
<THE REST OF THE SAIYANS FOLLOW CHAIVA BACK TO THEIR ROUTE; CHAIVA ONCE AGAIN SMIRKS, CONFIDENT THAT SHE WILL COMPLETE THE MISSION NEAR-SINGLEHANDEDLY>
