First show script dialog (opening scenes)

We see Nikita talking to other street kids and then running down the street with them. Nikita hears a man's cry and turns her head to see a bald man who has just killed a police officer. The bald man leaps up and slams her against the wall and they struggle - she screams but you don't hear the sounds - suddenly, the man withdraws leaving her with the bloody knife in her hands. She backs away, terrified, but you hear sirens and she finds herself surrounded by police officers. She raises her hands and drops the knife.

Voice over of judge: You have been found guilty of murder in the first degree. I'm sentencing you to life in prison. (Shot of Nikita in police car)

Flash back to Nikita in the white room, being injected with something.

Flash back to Nikita behind bars in prison, screaming "Noooooo! I didn't kill anyone!"

Flash back to hands loosening Nikita's restraints in the White Room. Close-up of Michael's lips.

Michael: Good morning.

Nikita springs off the table like a wild animal and backs up
to the wall.

Michael: I'm not going to hurt you.

Nikita: What is this? (extremely wary, whispering)

Michael: You're not in prison anymore. The world thinks you're dead. Suicide. This is your funeral. (He hands her a photograph) Row 8, plot 30.

Nikita: My momma…didn't come? (starting to cry, she clutches the photograph to her chest. Michael stalks around the room in the usual Michael-like manner as Nikita slides to a sitting position)

Michael: We've decided to give you another chance. This is where you'll train. This is where you'll learn. After two years, if everything goes well, you'll work for us.

Nikita: Why me?

Michael: A woman with your looks, who can kill in cold blood…

Nikita: I didn't, I didn't, I didn't kill anyone! (stands up again, back against the wall. Michael goes to leave but she attacks him from behind. He neatly flips her back onto the floor and leans over her.)

Michael: When you attack someone from behind, go for the kidneys. It disables and they can't fight back.

Nikita: I don't want - I don't want lessons!

(Michael gets up)

Michael: We start tomorrow at 5 a.m.

Nikita: (still lying on her back) And if I don't want to?

Michael: (points at her) Row 8, plot 30. (He leaves)

TRIVIA NOTE: Born November 18, 1970, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, the 5' 10" Peta Gia Wilson spent her early days as an army brat in Papua New Guinea with her father, warrant officer Darcy Wilson.

After attending an all-girls Catholic school in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and suffering from a bout of anorexia at the age of 17, Peta graduated to a successful modeling career in Europe.

To pursue her life-long love of acting, Peta moved to Los Angeles to study with Arthur Mendoza, a protégé of Stella Adler. She made her movie debut in The Sadness of Sex (1995) as the "Girl of His Dreams".

In February, 2002, Peta gave birth to a baby boy, Marlowe.

In the summer of 2003, Peta costarred in the action-adventure The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in the role of Mina Harker, a beautiful, but deadly vampire (sired by Count Dracula) who joined forces with a group of Victorian Age superheroes to save the world from a nemesis known as The Phantom.

The TV series LA FEMME NIKITA is based on the French movie La Femme Nikita (1990) starring Ann Parillaud which spawned an American adaptation The Point of No Return (1993) starring Bridget Fonda as Maggie Hayward a.k.a. Claudia Anne Joran and Nina.
