Overview[]

Twangli, a dogmatic and overzealous Galactic Court of Justice delegate, visits the New Texas judge, J.B. McBride. Twangli's audit causes problems for the judge and Marshal BraveStarr, just as a dangerous conflict is brewing between ranchers and miners.

Plot[]

Twangli, an observer for the Galactic Court of Justice, is sent to Fort Kerium to check up on Judge J.B. McBride and McBride's efficiency and adherence to protocol. The initial meeting between them is not good (not least of all since Marshal BraveStarr writes Twangli a parking ticket for leaving his spacecraft in the middle of the street), and the situation is complicated by a territorial dispute between a group of solacow ranchers and kerium miners in nearby Hydrogen Valley. The dispute quickly escalates into an armed conflict. Unfortunately, J.B. has given permits to both groups to make use of Hydrogen Valley at the same time, and Twangli admits that he is after J.B.'s job and J.B. has given him cause to replace her.

Moral Segment[]

J.B.:

"In today's story, we met Alf and Billy-Bob. Two men fighting over the same piece of land. But when they were attacked by the Dingos, the two men learned to work together to protect themselves. When people work together, they can often solve problems that they wouldn't be able to solve by themselves. It's called teamwork or co-operation. And it's a very important part of getting things done. So the next time you and your friends have a problem, why not try teamwork? Try it, I think you'll like it."
