3713-crisis
SCENE 1
The worm technicians are buzzing about trying to figure out what's going on. Professor Albert Einslime appears to be in charge, but he won't know what's going on until they make contact with the Wiggleprise. When they make visual contact, it appears that the ship's crew are arguing over who gets to use the pink bowling ball. Dr. Einslime explains that this happens to worms in space after being cooped up for so long and states that this could be a dangerous emergency. If they can't cooperate with one another, they may not get to the moon. Telly frets that they could even get lost in space.

SCENE 2
cont'd
Because this is WASA's first mission to the moon, Maria is instructed to read their official Worm Spaceship Manual to figure out what to do. She finds the section on the Wrong Button, which strictly instructs never to press it -- but if this has already been done, all you have to do is push the Right Way button. The only problem is that the Right Way button is outside the spaceship, located near the tippy-tippy top so that it can't be pushed by mistake.
