Get away from my ship!
This is territory of the

Get away from my ship!
What do you want here?
Don't shoot.
You are trespassing!
- We just came
- Step back!
What are you after?
You will not take my ship!
Stay back!
Stay back!
Madam President, the vice
president is here to see you.
Send him in.
Hello, Jim.
Madam President.
After yesterday's statement,
you need to know the
reality of the situation.
Of course.
Talk of impeachment has been
gaining a great deal of momentum.
Almost all Republicans in
both houses of the Congress
are strongly in favor.
They feel betrayed, lied to.
I'm pretty sure being
dishonest about my sexuality
falls short of high
crimes and misdemeanors.
I think it would be wise to spare
yourself and this
country the humiliation
of a nasty impeachment proceeding
and assured conviction in the Senate.
It takes a two-thirds vote.
With enough Democratic support, I
could survive a trial in the Senate.
You wanna put your fate
in the hands of a party
we've been fighting tooth and
nail for the last two years?
What are you suggesting, Jim?
That you resign from office.
And save the Republican Party from
an apocalypse in the next election.
And I'm sure you're ready
and willing to replace me?
This has nothing to do with what
I want. We are under assault.
I'm under assault.
I will do everything in my
power to protect your legacy.
I assure you of that.
You don't give a shit about my legacy.
Or me.
I know for a fact
you're already planning
to support the Speaker's
bill to defund NASA.
Well, I'm sorry to state the obvious,
but if you haven't noticed,
Mars is an abject disaster.
It has been a circus from the start.
First Will Tyler, then
this Russian love child.
Not to mention the fact
that seven people have died.
We didn't do these things
because they are easy,
but because they are hard.
I won't allow you to destroy everything
we've worked so hard to build.
And I won't allow you to
destroy the Republican Party.
Maybe it needs a little destroying.
Now, if you'll excuse
me, I have work to do.
Oh. Molly. Hi. It's Karen.
Wayne got stuck at a student,
uh, conference thingy.
Feel free to wait.
- Okay.
- Have a seat.
Or not.
I don't care.
Wow, Molly. This painting is fantastic.
Those are Wayne's over there.
Okay. I can't I can't
do this. I can't focus.
I can feel your anxiety from here.
Okay. I I can go
if you'd like, and
Cough it up. What's the issue?
Um, if it's okay, I would rather
just talk to Wayne about it.
Trust me. I'd rather
you talk to Wayne too.
But I'm here and you're
here. So, what's the problem?
I work at Helios with
Dev Ayesa, and I am
COO. Yep, Wayne told
me. Cut to the meat.
- Okay. The meat. Um
- The point.
Yes. S
The board came to me
and asked me to be CEO.
- This is the problem?
- Yes.
Dev is CEO. He founded Helios.
He was the one who brought me in
after everything that
happened with Polaris and
So you feel like you owe him?
Yes. I do owe him.
- Do you want it?
- That's beside the point.
It's exactly the point.
Do you want it or not?
- Yes. I do. I do want it. But I
- So you remember Apollo 15?
- How could I forget?
- So that was Gordo's flight.
Gordo had been training for more
than a year to find ice on the moon.
And when Deke said that
he was putting me on,
do you think I hemmed and hawed?
Hmm? You think I was
like, "Oh, I-I can't.
What will Gordo say? What if he's hurt?"
Fuck that! I said, "Yeah. Sign me up."
Yes, Molly. Of course you
did because you're a
Selfish prick.
No. I I was going to say that
you're a force of nature and
No. I'm a selfish prick. That's okay.
Selfish pricks change the world.
Your ex-husband is one.
Dev Ayesa, I guarantee you,
is a card-carrying member
of the Selfish Prick Club.
And deep down, much as you
try to hide it, you are too.
Is the baby okay?
The test results will tell us more.
I'll be right back.
What's going on?
With the preeclampsia,
the baby is not getting enough
blood through the uterus.
And K-Kelly?
Her blood pressure is
high. It's too high.
We need to deliver the baby
to save both their lives.
I can't lose her. You
understand that, Dimitri?
I'm doing everything I can, Edward.
But I don't have the appropriate
equipment for this here.
The fetus will be premature
by at least a month.
Meaning what?
That we must get her and the baby
up to Phoenix as soon as possible.
They have a ventilator and
magnesium for her toxemia.
But w we don't have enough fuel
to launch the MSAM for another month.
If we don't deliver the
baby in the next 24 hours,
both of them could die.
Rover One, Happy Valley, come in.
Rover One, Happy Valley.
Poole, Kuznetsov, come in.
I thought this was supposed
to be an unmanned probe.
So did we. They kept it
secret in case of failure.
They probably think
he's dead. Poor bastard.
Wait a second. Didn't
they launch in September?
So they landed on Mars before us.
He landed on Mars before us.
He was first man on Mars?
- Oh.
- Ah.
You sure you don't speak any Korean?
I thought Russia and North Korea
were supposed to be best buds.
Anyway, it makes no difference.
He's not on our frequency.
He can't hear us.
Well, what are we gonna
do? We can't just sit here.
if we rush him,
together, at the same time,
he can only shoot one of us.
Tell me that's not your best idea.
Do you have a better one?
Maybe we don't need words.
What are you doing, Danielle?
I'm not quite sure yet.
Okay, um
We need to borrow a part of your ship.
So, this is your ship.
We need a part of it, so
that we can leave.
What about this?
So that we
can go home.
Home. Yeah.
Yes! Yes. So that we can go Yes.
Wait, wait, wait!
What Kuz, goddamn it.
I'm trying to Wait.
Give me this.
Got it.
Okay. Okay.
What was that?
You're right. We don't need words.
Happy Valley? Rover One.
Happy Valley, do you copy?
Danielle, are you guys okay?
Yep. We're okay.
Did you get the Kurs system?
Yeah, we got it, and we're headed back.
But there's something
else you should know.
How is this even possible, Mikhail?
They can barely launch
a satellite into orbit.
Our friends in North Korea
have always been eager to
prove they are world power.
I mean, what do we even call him?
Is he a a refugee? A prisoner?
Secretary Bush is concerned
the North Koreans will
interpret this as a hostile act.
I will speak to the Chairman.
They still need patronage of USSR.
Just get their cosmonaut
home in one piece.
You have a deal, Mikhail.
And, may I add, your,
uh, political troubles?
No You don't have to
There is famous Russian saying.
In English it would be, uh,
"I ran from the wolf,
but ran into the bear."
A bear indeed.
Good luck.
Thank you.
Goodbye, Mikhail.
We've got a lot going on
here, as I'm sure you're aware.
So, to what do I owe this
unscheduled visit, Ms. Catiche?
I have a sensitive matter to discuss.
If this is about our
new North Korean guest
It's not.
Well, I'm in the middle of
planning a rescue mission.
You're being investigated, Margo.
Excuse me?
We have an asset inside
your Justice Department.
And they have alerted us
that you're currently
being investigated by FBI.
Someone from NASA is talking to them.
Aleida Rosales.
From what our asset
has been able to gather,
federal agents are preparing
to make an arrest very soon.
Margo, we can help you.
I've seen how you help people.
If you do nothing,
you will get arrested.
You will spend the next 40 years
of your life in a penitentiary.
Is that what you want?
Sojourner still has plenty of LH2.
Uh, their habs could be used to
synthesize the methane faster.
Okay, that's promising.
We're limited by the rate we can
pull CO2 from the Martian atmosphere.
Can I borrow you for a second?
Uh, sure. I'll be right back.
Uh, we're gonna head to JSC soon.
- Okay. Go ahead. I'll meet you there.
- Yeah.
So how you holding up?
- Fine.
- Yeah?
Fine. Yeah, uh, I am.
I'll be better once Kelly
gets safely up to the Phoenix.
And we'll get her there.
Okay, so I just wanted to give
you the heads-up that it looks like
the bastards are about
to make their move.
The board.
They're trying to take Helios from us.
So, we cannot sit around and
wait for them to take control.
I've been talking to some
international partners.
- Hey, Dev. I
- Hold on a second. Listen.
I've been talking to some
international partners,
and they're really interested
in what we got going on.
They're hedging a little bit,
- in light of everything that we
- Dev.
The board approached me.
They asked me to be CEO.
What'd you say?
I said I need to think about it.
Have you?
I believe in this company. Dev, I do.
I believe in what we have
built and what we are building.
But what it needs right
now is a steady hand.
- Dev, I want you
- No, no.
- I I want you to know that
- Don't apologize.
This is on me.
I never should've broken from
our core collective principles.
Giving you your office, your
title, everything that you asked for
that corrupted everything
that this company stands for.
Dev, we both know that
this has nothing to do
with some abstract
notion of togetherness.
Okay, it doesn't? So what does
it have to do with then, Karen?
Enlighten me.
Dev, over the last few months,
your erratic behavior, your
decision-making, your
your inability to
adjust based on setbacks
has put our financial health at risk.
This This is about
the future of our company.
About the people that you
claim to care so much about.
Oh, so you're doing this
for them? No one else?
I'm doing it for me too. But tell
me what's wrong with that, huh?
I have worked my ass off to get here.
Now you're taking your pound of flesh.
This is not how I want it to be, okay?
Dev, I want you to
stay on with us, okay?
With me, you have a seat on the board.
We continue to build what
we have been together.
And watch you pillage my company?
Sell it off for parts?
No, thank you.
NASA's working the problem, but
It's not coming easy.
To be able to launch with
the fuel we have on hand,
we need to cut a lot more
weight out of the MSAM.
Is there anything else
we can take out of Popeye?
- How much do we need?
- NASA says a thousand pounds.
We've already taken
out most of the seats.
Cut out all the nonessential
hardware. There's
There's nothing really else,
if the thing still needs to fly.
There is one more thing left to pull.
We are the weight.
Nine of us.
That's a thousand pounds, give or take.
What? No.
If we stay, Kelly can go.
No. No. That's not even
It means we'll have to wait
for Sojourner 2 to pick us up.
That's a year and a half from now.
This is crazy.
You can't do this. There isn't
enough food to last that long.
W-Well, if we institute strict
rationing of all our MREs
and, uh, Kelly's crops in the jungle
keep growing at the rate they've been
Yeah, I mean, it'll be rough.
But maybe we could make it work.
Absolutely not.
I am not letting any
of you make that choice.
We'll just have to figure
something else out or
I don't know.
Dimitri, is there any way
to give birth down here?
I'm sorry. There is not.
I'm staying.
Danny. No.
I'm gonna stay too.
- I will stay also.
- And me.
This is insane.
You can't survive here that long.
Don't do this.
There's been a lot of talk down
there about giving up on Mars.
But as hard as it's been, and as
much as we grieve the ones we lost,
all that would be for
nothing if we gave up now.
So, we're going to get Kelly to Phoenix,
and you're gonna have to come get us
'cause we're not going anywhere.
Happy Valley out.
Get me the president.
Check. One, two, check.
How's that level, Brandon?
Okay, good.
I'm live here outside Johnson Space
Center where we have just heard
Kelly Baldwin and her unborn
child are gonna be launched
to needed medical facilities
aboard the orbiting Phoenix craft.
This shocking development comes
live here at the Johnson Space Center
where hundreds have gathered
After you get inside support room
329, look for the video patch panel.
Unplug the cable
connected to switcher one
and plug in this transceiver.
Then Sunny'll be able to upload the
video we record from
the camera out here.
Are we sure this is the
right time to be doing this?
It's the perfect time.
All eyes are on NASA right now.
It's gonna show everyone what a
corrupt institution this really is.
We're gonna change the world today, Jim.
And give your parents
the justice they deserve.
You good?
medical facility aboard
the orbiting Phoenix craft.
We will have the very
latest on this very sh
Even reducing from nine
MSAM passengers down to one,
with our current propellant on hand
we are still only at 95.3%.
Ninety-five percent. You
You've gotta be kidding me.
- It's better than 80%.
- Who cares?
You can't get 95% of the way to
Phoenix. It's 100% or nothing.
Step outside with me for a minute.
Margo, I
I need your focus here.
I know. I'm
I need to talk to you about something.
I know, Aleida, about the investigation.
- You do?
- Yes.
I'm sorry you got pulled into
this. That was never my intention.
Believe me. I tried to stop it.
Why'd you do it?
Why'd you help them?
After all this is over, we'll talk.
But right now, we're
running out of time.
And I need you in there.
- Oh. Oh, you mean before or after
- Come on.
you crashed your
ship into the surface,
making it useless for everyone.
You guys brought down a mountain.
All right. All right.
Let's just go ahead and accept
that the MSAM will only
get us to 95% orbital velocity.
So, how do we get the
last 5% of the way there?
I-I mean, if we had
time to build a second
stage to MSAM, with a different fuel,
we'd be gold. But we don't.
Maybe we do.
She's the second stage.
- What?
- Kelly.
H-How is that even
We give her an independent
propulsion system.
The PMU.
They should still have
that aboard Sojourner.
And she's trained to use it.
The propulsive mobility unit
was designed to get an astronaut
back and forth along
the hull of Sojourner.
It doesn't have enough
thrust to get her to Phoenix.
It's not about thrust.
It's about impulse.
We just need a bigger gas tank.
Now if we can find a way
to connect all the backup
propellant tanks to the PMU,
then she can get the velocity
she needs to get into orbit.
I'm sorry. Are you suggesting we
light Kelly Baldwin up like a rocket?
Steven, take a spare PMU pack and
some backup prop tanks to building 7.
Figure out a way to connect the
tanks and go get us that last 5%.
Got it.
Bill, if this is gonna work,
she's gonna have to be outside
on top of the MSAM for separation.
- You and your team figure out
- Mm-hmm.
- how we're gonna pull that off.
- Let's go.
And I want people in the sims working
out every possible scenario here.
She's not gonna have any
guidance or navigation,
so she'll have to do
the rendezvous visually.
Let's move.
All right. Bring it in, everybody.
I just wanna let you all know
that the board of
directors is going to ask me
to resign my position
as CEO of this company.
Karen Baldwin will be taking my place.
- Huh?
- Can't be serious.
They think we should turn
our eyes away from Mars.
Refocus on our helium-3 lunar mining.
That's That's
That's where the money is.
And I'm not gonna lie to you
guys, it's a lot of money.
And given the recent setbacks,
they think that we
pushed too far, too fast.
That we should retreat.
But that's not who we are.
- No. No. No.
- Is it?
This is bullshit, Dev.
- Mm-hmm.
- They can't do this.
My friends,
Helios has been the
great work of my life.
- Of all our lives.
- Mm-hmm.
But at the end of the day,
Helios is just a name on a building.
And what we've accomplished
is more than just a name.
Yeah. Yeah, that's true.
It's a revolution. Made up of all of us.
We can and we will start over.
Yeah. That's right.
But this time, we'll do it right.
No board of directors.
No board of anything.
You will be the board of directors.
We will not turn our back to Mars. No!
We will double down.
More bases, more
missions, more everything.
This is only the beginning.
I have a question.
For those who choose to
follow you on this new venture,
will they be compensated
the same as they are now?
Thank you for your concern, Karen.
Yes, there will be some initial pay cuts
as we get our feet underneath us.
This is just me being honest with you.
What are we talking about?
Yeah, how much of a pay cut?
Are we talking 10%, 15%?
We're not in this for the money.
- We need to stick together.
- Speak for yourself.
What about our stock options, Dev?
Stock options?
Yeah. Yeah. If we quit, we lose
our stock options in Helios, right?
I don't know if that's true, but
Ted's right. They'd be void.
That's, like, a hundred grand
we'd be walking away from.
- Okay.
- I can't just jump ship.
I can't do that. That's a lot of money.
Okay. People, people, people,
people, people, people, people.
This is not about money.
This is not about any one of us.
This is about all of us
striving for something greater.
But that's pretty easy
for you to say, Dev.
I mean, you're, like, rich.
I just want a house.
I'm paying student loans.
My mortgage.
From the top of the MSAM?
That's insane.
Yeah, maybe, but
that's the plan.
You can do this, Kel.
Remember there's almost no
atmosphere, so launching in the open
will be kind of like riding in
the back of the LSAM on the moon.
And you've had more training
in the PMU than anyone up here.
It'll be just like another EVA.
More like being shot out a cannon.
But if this is what it
takes to keep my baby safe,
then it's what I'm gonna do.
That's my girl.
But if I'm on top of the
MSAM, how am I gonna fly it?
Well, you're not.
I am.
No. No, that's
We'd use almost all the prop.
There'll be nothing
left for your landing,
you'll crash into the surface.
I'm not gonna let anyone else
put themselves on the line
for you and Ed Junior.
Don't worry.
I'm talking to Houston,
and we're gonna figure out a
way for me to get back down safe.
And I got the best pilot
I know to help us out.
All right. All right.
That's enough of that shit.
Let's get this show on the road.
Where's the queen of darkness?
Hello, Molly.
How I missed that voice.
I hear Ed Baldwin has
need of my assistance.
Yes. He said he wanted someone with
Someone who's actually
had their ass on the line?
I believe that's how he put it, yes.
Okay. Let's not belabor this
any further. What do we got?
What are the propellant
margins he'll be dealing with
once Kelly separates from the MSAM?
He could have as little as
2% to 3% left in his tanks.
That's not much to work with.
get Ms. Cobb anything she needs.
I'm glad you guys made it back.
These are the residents of Happy Valley.
All right. What's
his What's his name?
No idea. He won't say a word.
What is your name?
Lieutenant Colonel Lee Jung-Gil.
What in the hell?
I picked up a few words during the war.
Commander Ed Baldwin.
You must take me back to my post.
Your post?
You must take me back to my post.
He keep keeps saying we should
we should take him back to his home.
He didn't seem too happy about
us taking him from his ship,
but what were we supposed to
do, just leave him there to die?
To him, the mission is above
all else, no matter what cost.
Well, my good dumpling
this is now your home.
Okay. Uh, Dani. Get the
Kurs system to Louisa.
- Yeah.
- We need to launch soon.
Okay. Okay.
- Karen.
- Hi.
Uh, what, um What are you
Oh, yeah, you're, uh
You're here for the
Yes. I didn't expect to see you though.
Yeah. Well, you know, I'm here.
I'm sure that Danny appreciates that.
You good?
Uh yeah, uh, I, uh
I just think I'm gonna
I'm gonna go out for a smoke.
Okay. Well, I'll see you in there then.
Yeah. I'll see you in there.
We've got a spot over here for you.
You know, I knew I'd get you to
work with me one way or another.
It's funny, they used
to keep me up there.
Me too.
Yeah, 20 years ago I was
in the viewing gallery
waiting to hear if my
husband was gonna be okay.
And now I'm down here.
Still waiting to hear if he and
my daughter are gonna be okay.
Hey, Jim.
How'd it go?
Real good. Um, everything's set up.
Great. We really appreciate it.
- Don't we, Hal?
- Sure do.
Uh, I gotta go to the restroom.
All right. We'll see
you in a little bit.
- Hi, it's Amber.
- Please leave a message.
Amber, uh, it's Jimmy.
Please Please call me back.
I I think there's
something going down at JSC,
and I I don't know what to do.
Um, maybe, uh
Hey, you okay?
Yeah. I'm fine.
Cool. Yeah, 'cause you kinda
ran off back there, so
No, uh, I had to go pee. That's all.
Who you calling?
Oh. Amber.
Um, I was telling her I
was gonna be home late.
That's so sweet.
Um, I'm gonna go pee.
Ms. Madison?
There's a video call for you from
Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
Put it through.
It is done.
My family and I, we are out.
Thank you. Thank you so much.
Um I'm so happy to hear that, Sergei.
You know, it was, uh,
quite exhilarating.
They took us in the middle of the night.
You know, we only landed
here in Germany one hour ago.
I hope it wasn't too
much for your parents.
No, no. On the contrary.
No, they they were
never been more excited.
First time in the helicopter.
Thank you.
Thank you once again, Margo.
I don't know if I can
ever repay you for this.
Don't worry about that. Just stay safe.
They say we should be in the United
States by the end of the week.
I am very much looking
forward to living in America.
It's gonna be an adjustment
living in a new place.
I I cannot wait.
We will see each other very soon.
Yes. We will.
Goodbye, Sergei.
So, Ed, the trick with this
is it's all in the timing.
Now, don't try to judge your height
by looking down at the ground.
It'll be coming towards you too fast.
And you can't trust
that radar altimeter,
because we don't know exactly
what terrain you're
gonna be dealing with.
So that's fucking useless.
You gotta keep your eye on the horizon
to gauge exactly when to fire 'em up.
A second too soon,
you're a smoking hole,
and a second too late,
you're a barbecue chicken.
Yeah, it's a good thing you're
at the end of your career, Ed.
You ain't got that much
to look forward to anyway.
Godspeed, friend.
Is this gonna work?
I'm not gonna lie. This is
about as tricky as flying gets.
Last time I tried anything like this
was back in my barnstorming
days at the Topeka State Fair.
You were a barnstormer. Why
does that not surprise me?
Oh, yeah. Clown suit, flying
on the wings, the works.
Only way I could make a living after
these fuckers killed Mercury 13.
Ah, they can't keep you away, can they?
Not a chance.
- Excuse me.
- Mm-hmm.
- Amber?
- Hi. Karen,
I I'm sorry to bother you, especially
now, but I didn't know who else to call.
- What's wrong?
- It's Jimmy.
I got a message from
him a few minutes ago,
and he was speaking really fast
and talking about something
weird going on at JSC,
and then his phone just cut out.
I-I'm really worried about him.
He hasn't been himself lately.
Uh, okay.
Um, uh, let me see what
I can figure out, okay?
Thank you, Karen.
Everything out there prepped for launch?
- Yeah.
- Great.
- Ed.
- Yeah?
Please let me do this.
I've been training on the

yourself from your fucking guilt.
I'm gonna tell you what you're gonna do.
You're gonna get your ass back to work,

And when all this is over
there's gonna be a reckoning, Danny.

I can't fucking hear you.
Aye, aye, sir.
Get outta here.

I remember standing
right over there when
Gene Kranz put a hold on the countdown
and called everyone in
here before Apollo 11.
Yeah, I'm old.
I still remember his words to this day.
"The future is ours
to fight for and win."
He was right then.
And he still is today.
So I just wanted to say
what an honor
and a privilege
it has been working with all of you.
Thank you.

All right, everyone.
It's go time.

A massive car bomb
has reportedly exploded

There was a bombing at JSC.
And Karen was there.
I am so sorry.
It's what we all decided

Somebody will bring you
more supplies every month.
I understand.
In 1620, a ship called the Mayflower
traveled across the Atlantic
Ocean in search of a new world.
Some came to escape their past,
others to follow their dreams.
They faced many hardships and turmoil.
But together,
and with the memory of
those they left behind
they were able to overcome.
What was once a group of strangers,
voyagers seeking a better life,
had become something different,
something more.
And in the unlikeliest of places
they found a new home.
what do we do now?
I don't know.
