Synopsis for "One Shot"
In the 75th century, long after earth has been destroyed, the immortal Wildfire leads a group of raw Legionnaires on the planet Rimbor. The new team consists of Nervosa, a Bismollian; Graft, a Durlan; Phase, a Bgztlian; Metrox, a Coluan; and Membrain, who apparently is one of the Brain Globes from Rambat. Their first mission is to stop the mysterious, planet-sized cannon that appears every century to destroy a star and whose creators have disabled communications throughout the former United Planets, causing member worlds to distrust one another. The Legionnaires fight the robots that guard the cannon but cannot overcome their own mutual distrust. Their mission fails – and only Wildfire and Membrain survive.
With help from Membrain, Wildfire enters a trance to recall his origin and the Legion in their 30th century prime in order to remember how they worked together as a team. He then recruits another batch of Legionnaires from former UP worlds, but this time decides to go Noah's Ark by selecting two of each, a teen-aged male and a teen-aged female: Magno-Boy and Lodestone from Braal; Triad III and Triplicate from Cargg; Argent and Silverwing, who are "Reniians"; and Shape and Shift from Durla. He orders them not to fraternize with each other, knowing that they will disobey him; soon, he spies the Reniians kissing.
The new Legionnaires stop a water pirate, but this success prompts the UP's hooded enemies to send the star-destroying cannon to Rimbor's sun 97 years ahead of schedule. Although Wildfire had hoped that it would be the descendants of these Legionnaires who would face the cannon, he marshals his troops anyway. As Wildfire and the Legionnaires approach the cannon, they are attacked by robots, as before. But this time Wildfire realizes that the robots are actually Durlans, and that the two Durlan Legionnaires, Shape and Shift, are spies. While Membrain and the other Legionnaires distract the Durlans, Wildfire destroys the cannon from within.
On Winath, a long dormant viewscreen is activated as Wildfire announces that "75 years ago," the Legion was victorious and the restoration of communication between UP worlds.
