THIS IS OBVIOUSLY THE SERIES' INTRO'S SEQUEL!

By
a.k.a. "John Blackstar's Pilot Episode and Origin Sequel"
"John Blackstar, Astronaut, is swept through a Black Hole into an ancient alien universe. Trapped on the Planet Sagar, Blackstar is rescued by the Tiny
Trobbit People. In turn, he joins their
fight for freedom against the cruel
Overlord, who rules by the might of the
PowerStar. The PowerStar is split into the Power Sword (retained by the Overlord) and the Star Sword (obtained
by John Blackstar). And so with Star Sword in hand, Blackstar together with his allies (Warlock the Dragon-Steed, Mara the Enchantress, and Clone the Shape-Changer) sets out to save the Planet Sagar.(For) this is his destiny!"
(Hey, Curious Cats, check out Bad Idea Productions, The Filmation Fan Page,
Blackstar at Yesterdayland, and John Blackstar Cartoons {Margaret Demona May's
Page}).
John Blackstar, recently arrived astronaut-hero from the Planet Earth and his new allies---Mara, Clone, Warlock, and the Trobbits---wind-up battling the
slow and dim-witted Lavalocks, huge living creatures made of hardened-red-molten rock, losing the Star Sword, and
finally in the end confronting the ominous
Overlord.
The episode opens with Blackstar, Mara, Clone, and Warlock sitting atop
the very thick rim of a huge red-rock
volcano. Our three humanoid heroes sit with each other Indian-style in a circle.
Mara:"Toast to our honored guest!"
Mara uses her magic to create three goblet-cups of delicious water as our heroes reach up to grab them.
Mara:"Here's to the Rebel Leader who stands against the Overlord wherever he goes.....I give you......Blackstar!"
The toast to our #1 hero is rudely interrupted by an attack of Lavaloks
who the Heroic Trio send defeated back into the "Pit of Darkness", the volcano's mouth.
Mara's psychic abilities warn Blackstar that there are more heading toward his friends the Trobbit people.
And a great aerial scene of Blackstar
riding ontop of Warlock is shown as
Blackstar rushes to the rescue of his
little pink friends.
All the Trobbits wind on the edge of a rocky canyon cliff, trapped by Lavaloks and Blackstar and Warlock come to their
rescue. Our hero, Good Ol' Butterfingers
Blackstar, loses the Star Sword for the
UMTEENTH time in the series and the magic weapon goes flying down another "Pit of Darkness".
Anyway, in the end the Star Sword is retrieved and Blackstar duels the Overlord and then the Rebels escape as
the Overlord warns our hero,
"I'm not through with you, Blackstar! We'll finish this battle another day."
