Basic Saga Salamander "Meisou No Paora"
Advanced Saga Salamander "Gofer No Yabou"
The clip here is from the 3rd part and contains quite a lot of familiar elements for those who have played any Salamander or Gradius/Nemesis games. Click on the video cassette to download the clip (divx,21MB).
"It's hard to believe that something which is neither seen nor felt can
do so much harm."
"That's true. But an idea can't be seen or felt. And that's what kept
the Troglytes in the mines all these centuries. A mistaken idea." -- Vanna and Kirk, "The Cloud Minders", stardate 5819.0
