A Planet in Peril by lborgia88
[Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar - Printer

A follow-up to Truth and Treachery:  Jason is now a captive in a secret base on Spectra, but no one knows where he’s gone or why, or that the entire planet is in peril…  For a challenge: turn an unused Gatchaman episode into a Battle of the Planets episode.

Story Notes:

In the same manner that I turned Gatchaman episode 102 into a “Battle of the Planets” episode, Dreams of Deception, and Gatchaman episode 103 into a follow-up “Battle of the Planets” episode, Truth and Treachery, here is Gatchaman episode 104, also converted to a “Battle of the Planets” episode.   It’s a follow-up to the first two and starts immediately where Truth and Treachery left off, making it "episode 87."


Again, there’s probably too much fighting and suffering in this for Battle of the Planets (though I did “edit out” a lot from the Gatch version), as well as too much plot weirdness (oh yes!) and episode continuity, but I’m not claiming this could really pass muster as a BOTP episode.  As ever, I have a much greater appreciation for what the Battle of the Planets writers accomplished!

This is also very image-intensive, as I’ve added screen cap “illustrations.”
