On TV one night at 9:00 was The Bride of Hackensack, in which a vampire, a werewolf, a mummy, and a witch
teamed up to stop a mad doctor and his evil bride.
Famous actor Biff Starr played the costumed hero
of the movie Invasion of Blueface;
along with his sidekick, the hero fought a train/eye monster, a
faucet/horse monster, and a caped jack-o-lantern monster; these monster
costumes would be stolen from the movie set and turned into the train monster, Leaky Faucet, and the jack-o-lantern monster.

Biff's sidekick quit, having trained at the Royal
Academy, unable to work with "this."
Kat, Tanya, and Rocky were
extras in the movie; they wore Ranger-colored togas and kept their
communicators on their wrists.
Lt. Stone was friends
with the movie's head of security, and he wanted Bulk and Skull to make a good impression.
Skull wanted to find a
way to get into the movie to become famous.
Biff's sidekick had just gotten a
job on a soap opera, so the assistant director hired Rocky to be Biff's sidekick, even though Rocky looked nothing like the previous actor, who
was quite a bit shorter and had long black hair.
When Cogs arrived to steal
the movie's monster costumes, the assistant director dragged the Cogs away, as she said they were needed on the set;
the director was quite pleased with the Cog
While the cameras were rolling, Biff Starr tried to punch the Cogs in the stomach for a fight scene, but they were
extremely hard; Rocky smashed the Cogs' fists together, then flipped them both back,
before they could punch Biff.
The other Cogs stole the
three monster costumes that were to be used in the movie.
There was a woman in some sort of clown girl
costume on the set.
Skull was Rocky's fight scene stand-in.

Aboard Terra Venture upwards of a year after 643-CTD2,
movie star Carolyn Pickets was the star of the
movie Star Crossed Lovers (apparently a remake of the classic),
but at some point before or during shooting, she was supposedly injured,
so lookalike Kendrix Morgan took her place.
In a dimly-lit office set with a nighttime city
backdrop out the window, Kendrix tossed some
papers onto the desk of a guy named Bobby who was working in the office
"Bobby," the co-star, had apparently been a
student at Angel Grove High in 310-WFAD and also one of Mad Mike's victims in 522-TBTS. (Source: Submitted by Jason Takach)
Aloof, Kendrix told
Bobby, "Here are the reports you wanted," but the director, probably in
his early sixties, told her to play it more friendly, and she did.
As Kendrix looked at
some folders with her back to Bobby, he approached her and put his hand
on her shoulder, and she gasped and flipped him onto the ground,
apologized, saying it was a reflex.
At an outdoor cafe scene, Kendrix was eating with an older man with black
hair when she suddenly got up and saw Bobby talking to a girl on the
other side of the area.
Kendrix was supposed to
go to Bobby, calling him over, but her leg hurt, and she crashed into
the waiter, who wore a Hawaiian shirt.
On a hillside in the park some time later, the
last shot of the movie was preparing to be filmed.
The director told Kendrix she had broken the poor boy's heart and
would do anything to get his forgiveness, so she was to climb up the
hill to Bobby and deliver her line.
Bobby, in the same shirt as the cafe scene, was
sitting on a rock at a hilltop looking at a red rose when Kendrix called out from below.
On repeated takes, Kendrix came up the hill and told Bobby that she
loved him, but her leg pain was growing steadily more intense.
The slate for the
movie had "Star Crossed Lovers" under the Producer line and "Miurhead"
under the Director line.
On her final take, Kendrix hobbled up the hill limping from her
injured left leg; finally reaching the top, Kendrix delivered a moving line: "I love you,
Bobby! I always have, and I always will!"
The two characters hugged tightly, and the
director was astonished, calling it perfect.
Kendrix would later
idly read a line from her script in which her character said, "Oh,
Bobby, I'm gonna miss you so much!"
An indeterminate amount of time after the filming
of Star Crossed Lovers, Carolyn was on
Terra Venture television accepting what
looked identical to an Oscar, which she dedicated to Kendrix for teaching her the value of keeping a
promise and working hard.
