What's going on sola?
It 's air squadron of red Martians of our enemies !

Forth a fierce battle ...

4th Princess of Helium
After an hour fighting remnants of red squad went flying ...
On the battlefield, leaving only a single aircraft - rather a burning wreck , driven by wind to the city . Horde green darted at him like a flock of vultures pounced on the deck where waited a rich booty ...

Away! I Dejah Thoris , Princess of helium.
Oách ! You hear the warriors ? Helia is the Daughter jeddaka Thark? great booty !
How to Sola, the woman looks earthly ?
As the red race who inhabit the great city of Helium on the far south. Her father is a great Kayak Mors jeddak
Take the Lorquas Ptolemy captured for questioning
And - and
What brought your squad into the region Thark? ?
It was a scientific expedition ! You are treacherously attacked us !
Oh, Wickedness! Beat your wife - and probably speaks the truth !
Jeddak Thark? , Shut it offends us !
That you might learn !
Come on , I neleknu you !
Attention , John Carter , is a dangerous swordsman !
Here you go
Perish !
Who are you ? Although similar to red , you're the other - plus Tharks badges ...
I am a prisoner , Dejah Thoris ! I come from planet Earth - my name is John Carter
John Carter , this is your booty - have become one of our chiefs.
I could not otherwise - he would kill me , Tars Tarkas !

5th Again, the life
Tars Tarkas , how do you control thoats , if you do not bridle ?
Directed by telepathic force of will - or blow the ears . They are very wild , Carter
I'll try after we - well, peace ...
Within days of  Carter's thoat was trained with not only strength but also gentle treatment ...
I am happy , Dejah , see you again
Oh , great fighter! thoat? trainer , teacher thark? - a few days we will be at the target ...
The next morning ...
Good morning , Dejah ! What are you ? What attracted you ?
Sarkoja , John!
Tars Tarkas , let Dejah !
On the way, you might escape, but do not do it without Dejah
You are right my friend
Beware , John, old Sarkoja evokes something to the back
Thanks Sola, I'd be careful
Later in the rest
Out the back ! Why beat my thoat ?
I will send you into the arms of the goddess Issus ! Dejah is Thoris Tharkum !
Glad you learn , the back, the power of his sword ! You're supposedly a good swordsman
Damn , that old devil has blinded me Sarkoja ...
You will die with me , princess ! 
For it will kill you, Sarkojo !
God, Dejah , help , Sola !
Perish , cursed !
But you go with me, out the back !

Back and fell dead - Carter fainted ...
Scarcely had he recovered - rushed to Dejah ...

Sola is alive?
Just fainted because she thought that you're dead!
Oh , my master , you're alive ? Thanks to the sole living ...
Soon afterwards arrived journey to the capital Thark? . Here you should decide the fate of two prisoners . What about that?
Hail, Sola ! You bring us what news ?

Jeddak Tal Hajus decided to throw the annual games at the arena with wild dogs ...
He leaves us alone - to flee tonight ! thoat and prepare you, Sola , come with us . In Helium you will be better ...

6th On the run
Waiting for them at the end of the city , Sarkoja said it !
Ah , the devil has betrayed us ! I need to find Dejah and Sola are lost or ...
Barren yard! Here you will be well before I bring the princess .
Dejah Thoris house was guarded , however . Carter , however, secretly climbed to the window .
The Princess is in Tal Hajuse . His killing , when he returns - and he comes !
Soon Carter broke into the palace Hajusova Tal ...
Bring the women and let alters them alone . Little to amuse ...
Grr ! This pay for life , the old coward !
Becomes , oh , jeddaku Thark?
Princess Helia , I do not want ransom - but you . And then you and tortured you . And then you will be tortured and your grandfather , jeddak Helia die of grief ! Cha -Cha ! Come ...

Hold on , Carter ! Tal Hajus belongs to me ! Flee rather abstain from persecution !
Thanks , Tarsus Tarkasi !
Obelstíme is - now we're going in the opposite direction !
Helios is a huge debt , either escape or perish , Carter !
Hurry before it's dark !
After several days, the refugees knew that got lost . They ran out of stocks and thoati melted ...
Oh , Issus ! I see a horde of warriors ...
Dejah , solo flee to the mountains. Will I keep it ...
Ned will send you , John Carter . I die with you ...
The gods know that I will not go !
Brightness will return to you , Dejah ! Believe !
Lie low and then try to escape. Perhaps I help my jumps ...

The last shot - and it remains to run ...

Damn ! Damn the spice!
And this is the end ...

7th Prisoner Warhoon?
Have you woke up ? I jeddak Warhoon? , Dak Kova ! Who are you? You Thark? badges , but the white skin and ...
Tharkové Dotar Sojat called me ! That you must do !
Oa ! See you on the big games !
When she arrived in town a bunch ...
Soon added an additional prisoner . skin was red like Dejah Thoris ...
Who are you ? It is too dark in here .
John Carter , a friend of the red Helium!
I do not know about you, but I want to believe ! I Cantos Kan airman from the expedition , which sought Dejah Thoris . My plane was shot down Warhoon ...

Carter said Kano everything he knew about Dejah . Flyer reinforced his hopes of rescuing the princess . But their hopes were small . The big games waiting just on the freedom of the bravest - the winner of all fights . In day games filled the amphitheater . In the caged captives waited and wildlife . He began fighting for his life ...
Carter won , and happily beat the wild calots ...
Cantos Kan after a series of battles kill the last enemy by throwing a sword like a spear into his heart
Late in the evening stood facing the two of them - all past winners of the fights ...
Does not kill you , Carter !
Pass the race - now with the series . Then as you kill me - perhaps save !
Finally, the appropriate moment ...
Winner Cantos Kan jeddaka calls for freedom !
Warhoon? laws are fair ! Go ! Exiting a great game !
In the mountains behind the town, Carter waited in vain in Kana Cantos . So he gave way to the Heli , which might have waited even Dejah Thoris . After a few days arrived famished for a mysterious building .
It is futile , perhaps not even there ... and yet ...
Who are you ? I see Thark? badges , red body , white skin, but ...
Hello! Where are you ? I'm starving ... I am a friend of the red ...
That you ?
Yes, I ! I can see everything - even your heart , brain , authorities ... Not just your thoughts ! Therefore you are not from Barsoom , because even then I could read . That's enough - eat !

8th Airman in Zodanze
These machines are concentrated in the ninth ray of sunshine - the base of the atmosphere Barsoom
And what if someone gets here ?
Not to know the secret keys telepathic
The station is closed impenetrable ... but it is time to sleep !
Thank you , I'm really tired !
Gosh ! What are you thinking ? I must be careful !

Middle of the night ...
I was right ! I have to flee - lucky that I know telepathic key ...
Before the guard saw his error , Carter managed to penetrate the station gates to freedom . Headed south to helium. On the way he passed a farm red . One ...
Halt , stranger ! Where are you going ?
I'm not armed , I fled Warhoon and go into Helium
How? You know ...
... Zodanga that war with helium ?
Well , my prisoner again !
Not - we are against war !
Carter found friends . He told them everything and they advised him to have colored skin and went into Zodangy . Perhaps they will learn about Dejah Thoris .
Carter arrived in Zodangy ...

Gosh ! Cantos Kan !

By Issus , quiet! Who are you ?
What? John Carter ! Where did you change skin color ?
And where you are here you take it?

Up elsewhere ...
Cantos Kan was scouted . The prince is said Sabu Than seized Dejah Thoris . Happens - if his wife will end the war . Helium , however, an ultimatum to adopt ...

We must find a princess
I'm going with you Kan!
I joined the Air Force here . I will help you do the test and teach you polished . Will it fit ...
The plan is successful. After several days, Carter started for the first time .
Gosh ! Three green to red ? And it's an aviator ...
Thanks , brave pilots ! You came at the right time !
I am a nephew Than Kossise , jeddaka Zodangy ! I will suggest you to his uncle's Guards !
Thanks for granted the honor !

9th Meeting with Dejah
From here you keep jeddakovu chamber ! His life is too precious !
I will fulfill orders!
Coming Soon ...
Than what is due to visit Kossis Dejah Thoris ?
Close válkus helium and Sabu will Thanova . Maybe I really loved
What ?
Oh , I love you , Dejah ! Father, stop the war!
See you son ...
No, I do have to avoid talking to Dejah .
Dejah Carter followed up to her quarters , but stood guard at the entrance ...
Than I go from Kossise to dejah Thoris !
Where are you going ?
Then tell me the password !
Here is my password !
To arms !
Last ! Oh , Sola ! Finally, I'm with you ...
What's happening ?
Who are the men of Zodanga ?
Dejah ! Did you recognize me ?
The voice ? John Carter ... Too late my friend ! I thought ...
... you're dead . Just because today I gave my word to save Helium . I'm not your princess already , and you my lord . Sab Than lives until ...
You have uttered his sentence of death !
Carter may not be the wife of the murderer !
Leave a Friend ! All is futile !
Half mad with grief Carter escaped from the palace and sought Cantos Kana ...
There remains only one thing: The Assassination of Richard Than Sabu ! And you vzbou?íte Helium - Fly !
Corridors are monitored - will try to climb the walls ... it was dark ...
Either the hook up captures , or ...
Who are you and how you come here ?
I aviator - I had almost lost his life , just look down ...
See? - Oh , and sleeping now !
Damn ! Alarm : Perhaps caught Cantos ... Do I have to planes - Helium revolting !
Oráá !

10th Tarsus Tarkas
At least I have a little edge goodbye , Dejah !
The carrier tank ! On the ground , sic ...
Glory flies away ! Now he has toNokat in the morning - the plane is over ...

After daybreak
Damn ! Gang green on both sides . Here, something will happen ...
Ora !
Damn ! Tars Tarkas ! Hang on to a friend !
John Carter ! This will never forget !
Forward, Tars !
Tharkové beat Warhoony afternoon. Carter then drove them into town . Jeddak Tal Hajus he wanted revenge and Tarsus Tarkas John advised to flee ...
Your jeddak is a coward and the time has come to account with him ! Stay!
Many will be with you , John! Let's go !

In jeddakov? Palace
Finally I got you! See what 's hit jeddaka ! Seize him !
Yes , Tal Hajus , you coward ! once you tortured my wife and I 'm waiting years for this day .

Where was the great jeddak today when his Thark fight? In his palace !
Now I will send you to her! And a child who had , Tarsus Tarkasi !
Oách !
You're not so good swordsman Tal Hajusi ! I killed you !
Vive jeddak Thark? , Tarsus Tarkas !
I have a surprise for you , Tarsus Tarkasi !

11th At the last moment
Child to your wife alive - this is Sola . She told me her story of escape from here , but the father did not know ...
Is it possible? And where is it?
Captured with Dejah Thoris in Zodanga . Brave Thark Help Hélio !
Now will call all the tribes and go !
One hundred thousand Thark? stopped at midnight on the fifth day before Zodangou ...
