MARS (2016) s02e03 Episode Script

Darkness Falls

1 NARRATOR: Previously on Mars.
HANA: It's important I share my experience with you, commander to commander.
KURT: There are no real boundaries here, not for Lukrum anyway.
We didn't sign the outer space treaty, and we aren't even based in a country that did sign it.
AMELIE: I'm pregnant.
It's not like I planned this.
JAVIER: No, you just planned to leave.
AMELIE: I don't know what to do.
JEN: I came here for the adventure.
MARTA: Where you see a red, dusty planet, I see beauty.
I just have to show progress, and I can only do so much on the surface.
Maybe those bastards at Lukrum had the right idea.
WOMAN: Did you see something? KURT: Only what we're looking for.
MARTA: Well, that was lucky.
MAN: Finding water, that was lucky.
MARTA: You need to tell us where the water is.
KURT: You're one crazy bitch, you know that? MARTA: This planet doesn't belong to you.
It doesn't belong to anyone, especially if there's life here.
MAN: I thought she was sleeping.
She's not breathing.
I need help.
JOON: Because it was always my dream to be with you on Mars.
We're coming in too fast and Everyone is burning bright 182 seconds, baby And heaven is a trick of the light Cold hell, my love DOCTOR: How's your appetite? HANA: Fine.
DOCTOR: Are you sleeping alright? HANA: Yes.
DOCTOR: Any changes in mood? Any anger? Depression, anxiety? HANA: Nothing beyond what's normal for the situation.
DOCTOR: Well, though there are some common stages of grief.
I don't think we should be talking in terms of what's normal and what's not.
Can you tell me, have you been having any negative thoughts? HANA: No, not really.
What are you getting at exactly? DOCTOR: I'm not getting at anything.
It's been three months since Joon died.
I'm just trying to help you process.
HANA: What would really help is letting me get back to work.
DOCTOR: When a loved one suddenly dies, we often feel more than a sense of loss.
Often, there's a sense of guilt.
And rather than dealing with the pain of that, it becomes easier to postpone.
You have to allow yourself to feel, Hana.
HANA: I don't have that luxury.
Not here.
CAMERON: Pretty sure our drones weren't designed for stalking.
MARTA: I'm just monitoring Lukrum's progress, if that's what you want to call it.
And if I hadn't, we wouldn't even know where the aquifer was.
They certainly weren't going to tell us.
CAMERON: But what they are doing over there isn't all bad, you know.
I mean, they can get underneath the surface here in a way we never could.
MARTA: You're right.
That's why I watch them as closely as I do.
Not that's there's been much to see for the last two months.
CAMERON: It's taking them a while to print and assemble that drilling equipment? MARTA: Is that inside information? CAMERON: Look, I know you're not a fan of the company they work for, but the people at Lukrum colony are pretty great.
MARTA: Spoken like someone who is sleeping with the enemy.
CAMERON: Jen is not the enemy, okay.
She's someone who I really care about.
MARTA: You know what? None of my business.
CAMERON: What's going on over there? MARTA: I picked their spot! JAVIER: It's amazing, isn't it? I mean, look at the face.
AMELIE: Well, actually I'm looking at bone development.
JAVIER: And? AMELIE: Within range.
Comparable to a fetus on Earth at 16 weeks.
JAVIER: Thank God.
AMELIE: Her organs appear to be developing normally as well.
Heart, liver.
JAVIER: Her? You said her? AMELIE: Oh yeah.
I'm sorry, I should have led with that.
It's a girl.
JAVIER: It's a little girl.
AMELIE: It's still early in the process, Javier.
Okay? JAVIER: Okay.
MIKE: Not much to get excited about.
Permafrost cap is only half a percent smaller than it used to be.
HANA: Once they start covering a larger area, we'll see changes.
We have to.
MIKE: You okay? HANA: Yeah, other than having to answer that question all the time.
MARTA: They've started.
I sent you the drone footage.
Did you get it? HANA: No.
What's going on? MARTA: Lukrum, they're actively drilling.
They didn't notify you? HANA: Marta, we've been through this.
They don't have to notify me.
MARTA: Right, because nobody holds them accountable for anything.
HANA: I don't know what you want me to do.
MARTA: Your job.
Notify the command that I need to gather samples on site.
HANA: I can't do that.
MARTA: Why not? HANA: There's no official communication between our colonies.
And we've been instructed by IMSF not to interfere with Lukrum's operations.
MARTA: Well, that's stupid.
And wrong.
Our mission was to explore this planet, not to sit back and watch it being exploited by corporate thugs.
HANA: Look, I am just as frustrated as you are.
Do you think I want to sit by and watch them trash the planet? No.
I don't.
But I have trust that IMSF is doing all they can to keep them in check.
MARTA: We're talking about finding a second genesis! A new biochemical life form that's unrelated to anything on Earth.
And if it is anywhere on this planet, it's in the liquid water that is buried deep underground.
HANA: Mhm.
MARTA: So are you really going to sit there and do nothing while they potentially destroy all that? Whose side are you on? Huh? Whose side are you on? HANA: The side of following orders! You are not to contact or interfere with Lukrum's activities.
Am I making myself clear? ELON: One of the first things to understand about Mars is whether there was primordial life there.
I don't think there was complex life there, but there may have been bacterial life and there may still be bacterial life deep underground.
So if there's some mining operation and they find life that the previous scientific expeditions didn't know were there, pause for a minute.
There's a lot to be learned from that.
I think it would be a real tension between scientists who want to keep Mars as untouched as a science lab, and interests that are financial.
So scientists will have to fight to do the scientific work that has to be done, even if it is greeted with opposition or fear.
Any time the process of science reaches a conclusion that is threatening to either an ideology or a desired reality, you are going to face pushback.
Global warming.
It has become in effect a religion rather than a science.
Global warming and da, da, a lot of it's a hoax, it's a hoax.
MARC: We have had no significant warming, uh, since 1998.
Actually no warming.
We've been cooling in recent years.
Right now we're facing a crisis in our society, about science.
Today, the EPA blocked its own scientists from speaking about climate change.
CDC is now banned from using seven words or phrases in its budget document.
ADAM: It has gotten so bad now, that scientists are being restricted in terms of what they can say.
And if we can't hear what science is telling us, the consequences are going to be dire for everybody.
JASON (OVER RADIO): As you fly in, you'll be able to see there's a big river.
I think if we can set down somewhere there, that would be excellent.
Uh, it's so much wetter than it was the other day.
This is going to be an awful place to camp.
I built my career on being willing to go into environments that other people have considered uh, uh, inaccessible.
Being on the Greenland Ice Sheet's probably about as close to going to another planet as you can get, and still be on Earth.
We'll be out here for a month or two months, so we have to be completely self-sufficient.
We're basically stuck there until someone comes to get us.
Alright, keep the tent low.
Sit on it.
MAN: Got a tap here.
JASON: It's pretty physically demanding, it's mentally demanding.
An average person might look up and just be like, oh, that's a horrific place, why would anybody want to go there? The scientist in me thinks, this is data.
We're out here to figure out exactly how fast the Greenland Ice Sheet is melting.
REPORTER: Ice caps are melting and temperatures are rising according to a new UN report.
BARACK: Arctic temperatures are rising about twice as fast as the global average.
ELLEN: We're seeing an incredible amount of ice loss from the ice sheets in Greenland.
That ice is going into the ocean, which is contributing to sea level rise.
JOE: If sea levels rise two feet, tens of millions of people will be displaced.
REPORTER: Around 145 million people around the world live less than three feet above sea level.
ANNOUNCER 2: And a rising sea level threat poses a continuing threat to cities and industries at low elevations.
JASON: Yes, climate change is real, yes, people are causing it, and we probably need to do something about it.
SUSAN: A scientist is someone who asks what is the bigger story, what is the truth that needs to be brought in front of the public? For a scientist to continue to research, in the face of either skepticism or even out and out opposition, you've got to be really brave to keep on doing that.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Voice comm from Cameron.
CAMERON: Hey I've been looking for you everywhere.
Where are you? MARTA: Honestly, best you don't know.
CAMERON: Hope that means you're not doing anything you shouldn't be? MARTA: No, just doing what needs to be done.
Talk later.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Communication ended.
MARTA: Mae, set course to Sector 4, Lukrum drill site.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Voice comm from Amelie.
MARTA: Amelie! AMELIE: You were right.
MARTA: It's a girl.
I knew it.
AMELIE: Yeah, and so far at least, she seems to be developing normally.
I wanted to tell you in person, but where are you? MARTA: Never mind me.
Where are you with all this? And how is Javier? AMELIE: Well, he seems happy.
But I'm not sure how I feel about any of it.
I'm not even sure how I feel about him anymore.
MARTA: Seriously? AMELIE: We broke up, remember? MARTA: Hold on.
MARTA: Zoom in.
It's more accurate to say that you broke up with him when you decided to leave, hmm? AMELIE: Yeah, but now I'm not, so, what does that make us to each other, other than parents to a child who may or may not be okay? MARTA: You can doubt a lot about this situation, but you can't doubt that Javier loves you.
That he respects you and what you do.
Think before you push a man like that away.
AMELIE: Marta, I had no idea you were such a romantic.
MARTA: I'm not.
I'll see you at home.
MARTA: Zoom in.
HANA: I don't know how I'm supposed to do this alone.
JOON: I'm so sorry.
To leave you like this.
My little sis.
(INAUDIBLE VOICE) ROBERT: Hana? You hearing any of this? HANA: Sorry, yeah.
It's impressive.
ROBERT: Been a while since we've done any building, and I think this would make a big difference around here.
HANA: I'll run it by IMSF.
What? ROBERT: I heard about you and Marta.
I've never known you to be a yeller.
HANA: She wasn't listening.
ROBERT: Okay, well, I will.
Or, I would if you actually talked to me.
You've been pulling away from everybody.
You barely come out of your hab, and when you do, it's just to work.
I'm your friend.
You know I'm here for you.
HANA: I know, I.
MIKE: Sorry to interrupt, but there's been a breach of protocol.
A rover was taken into the field without authorization.
HANA: What are its coordinates? MIKE: It appears to be in Sector 4.
HANA: Lukrum drill site.
MIKE: So much for taking orders.
HANA: Damn it.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Voice comm from Olympus Town control room.
HANA: This is Command, come in.
Marta, I know you can hear me.
Explain your actions.
MAN: Mobile comm's been deactivated.
MIKE: Steals a rover, hangs up on the commander.
For all we know, she could be sabotaging Lukrum equipment, too.
HANA: Marta's a scientist, not an Eco-terrorist.
MIKE: Either way, she doesn't respect your authority.
MAN: Solar mirror successfully attached.
CHEN: Okay, we did our part.
MIKE: Copy that.
Now if you just dropped down some Szechuan, that'd be nice.
Getting a bit sick of the food here.
WOMAN: We're on the other side of the planet at the moment.
But even if we weren't.
HANA: Activate emergency generators.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Electrical systems compromised.
MAN: What the hell? HANA: A flare's coming in.
KURT: Electrical team, report to command.
Everybody else, calm down, sit tight.
Our radiation shielding's fully functional.
You got a head count? SHEP: 30 strong.
LESLIE: Live feed status? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Olympus Town live feed is unavailable.
MIKE: Solar radiation's off the charts.
HANA: And we're not even on the surface.
KURT: Okay, hey, let's put a team together to check the damage outside.
LESLIE: Satellite status.
KURT: What are the chances of something like this actually hitting us? SHEP: A spot like this, pretty, pretty low, actually.
KURT: How do you know that? SHEP: I read sometimes.
JEN: Communications, down too.
I hope Olympus Town's okay.
HANA: Try contacting Lukrum colony.
MIKE: Radio frequency's down.
HANA: Keep trying.
KURT: Bernard, Flora, Carmela, come with me.
Shep, you too.
SHEP: Yup.
JEN: No, no, Marvin, you stay.
LESLIE: IMSF control room.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Secretary General, all contact with Mars has been lost.
ROBERT: What's happening? HANA: Solar flare.
It's taken out our electrical grid and our entire communications.
ROBERT: Surface wiring and fuses probably got fried.
JAVIER: We need to get up top, have a look at the transformers.
AMELIE: Where's Marta? She was out in the field.
MARTA: Okay, all set.
Mae, power on.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, exterior radiation levels high.
MARTA: That's not good.
Was there a solar flare? Mae, message to command.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Communications are currently unavailable.
MARTA: It must have affected surface electronics.
Set the coordinates to Olympus Town.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Terrain-relative navigation is not operational at this time.
MARTA: Are you kidding me? Reset TRN.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): TRN software systems failure.
MARTA: Fine.
I know the way.
I'll drive there myself.
HANA: We can't ID the non-functioning transformers.
So they'll just have to check them one by one.
Are Robert and Javier above ground yet? - MIKE: On their way.
- HANA: Good.
Tell them to focus on getting the radio tower operational first.
MIKE: With all due respect, shouldn't getting off backup power be our priority? Emergency generators will only last so long, and we've got 200 people to worry about here.
HANA: And we have enough power, oxygen, and heat to last us for several days.
Marta only has enough for a few hours.
MIKE: She doesn't need to contact us to get back.
Her TR navigation should get her here no problem.
HANA: And what if that wasn't working either? It's nightfall.
If she could have been here by now, she would have been.
And without radio beacons, we can't find her, and she can't find us.
MARTA: This doesn't look right.
It's getting too dark.
Where the hell am I? JOEL: We know what it's like to be in a harsh environment and to risk everything for science.
I mean, we've been doing it up in the Arctic for a long time.
The stakes are so high here.
You've got minus 40 degrees, you know, horrible storms, white-outs.
There's an inability to rescue people when things go wrong.
So for scientists the reward has to be great for them to go up there.
JASON: I caution everybody to stay away from the actual river bank.
If you were to slip and fall, or wind up in the water, you're just going to get sucked down the hole.
A lot of things could go wrong out here.
We're taking a sensor that measures basically how much melting that we've had on the ice sheet, and we're lowering that into these giant, hundreds of meter-deep waterfalls.
The big concern any time we make an initial approach up to the edge, is the stability of the ice.
There's a lot of rapids that can undercut some of the areas that we'd be standing on.
If something were to collapse underneath of me, the water's just a fraction of a degree above freezing.
Uh, I'd lose my ability to use my hands very, very quickly so we always want to be prepared in the event that something does go wrong.
All right, so I'm going to probe out to the edge, I'm going to come back and grab the cable.
When we're ready to go, I'll let everybody know.
Nobody's tried to do this here on the Greenland ice sheet so we're pretty motivated to make it work.
We're all set here to start lowering.
It's a pretty monster hole.
Looks like we can send the cable straight down the waterfall so whenever you're ready, I'm going to start lowering.
The pursuit of science requires a kind of dogged determination and passion to find the answer to the question you pose.
There's terrific risk going out to these areas, but scientists become tunnel vision, and they'll block out anything else that's a distraction to get the answer to that one question.
MARTA: Mae, coordinates to Olympus Town.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Navigation is unavailable.
MARTA: How much power do I have left? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): At this rate of speed, you have one hour remaining.
MARTA: And if I disengage the engine? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Vehicle will remain operational for three hours, seven minutes, and 23 seconds.
MARTA: Disengage engine.
ROBERT: I hope to god she's still okay.
JAVIER: Lost count.
How many more transformers are left? ROBERT: A lot.
And any one of them being damaged is why radio frequency's down.
JAVIER: Anything? ROBERT: No, it's not this one.
We don't get that tower back on, we're not going to find her beacon.
It's not this one.
No, it's not this one.
MARTA: Mae, how far have I driven? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): 17.
4 kilometers.
MARTA: But what direction? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Navigation is unavailable.
MARTA: I know! I was talking to myself.
They must be looking for me by now.
I should just stay put.
Stay put, conserve as much energy as you can.
Mae, Mae, how much power does my suit have left? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): one hour, 22 minutes.
MARTA: How long will this vehicle remain operational if I continue using heat? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): two hours at current interior temperature, which is 18 degrees Celsius.
MARTA: Turn off interior heat.
Damn it.
MARTA: Mae, lower suit temperature to five degrees Celsius.
AMELIE: What about using our drones to find her? MAN: They're practically useless at night.
AMELIE: Then what about contacting Earth, or the Chinese space station, and using their satellites? HANA: There are only five circling the planet.
Searching for her that way is a needle in a haystack.
MIKE: Hopefully Marta was smart enough to stay put and reduce her power usage when she realized something was wrong.
She's got at least some power in her suit, for when exterior temps drop to 70 below.
HANA: My guess is she used most of it collecting samples.
And since the rover's battery-powered she could have kept driving, thinking she could find her way back herself.
AMELIE: So what are you saying? HANA: That without navigation, she could be miles away from where she started, in any direction.
She could freeze to death before we find her.
ROBERT: It's so cold out here I can barely move.
JAVIER: I know me too.
ROBERT: We need to find this soon.
There we go.
Ugh! JAVIER: Are you okay? ROBERT: Yeah, let's hurry up and do this! JAVIER: Yeah.
Every second counts.
ROBERT: Let's see what we've got here.
Looks pretty fried, all right.
Fuses, relays.
Anything can be fixed.
It's just a question of how long it's going to take.
JAVIER: Marta can't have much battery power left in the rover.
Not right now.
I'm worried.
ROBERT: Yeah, me too.
For her and for Hana.
Between us, I don't think she can handle losing anyone else.
JAVIER: What is it? ROBERT: It's not working.
Something's wrong.
JAVIER: I just hope to God we can figure it out in time.
MIKE: The radiation surge has now subsided.
AMELIE: Radiation exposure is the least of Marta's problems.
MIKE: If she was in the rover when the flare hit, then she'd be protected.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Suit level critically low.
30 seconds remaining.
MARTA: I guess I don't need this anymore.
Mae, switch on the light.
How much power if I keep it on? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): The rover has less than 5% remaining.
It is not advisable.
Switch the light off.
ELON: Mars is for those who have an adventurous spirit.
And are willing to accept a much higher level of, of danger.
But they'd have to love the frontier and really want to see what the universe is all about.
If there's a place you've never been, there's a scientist who wants to know what's there.
Just a curiosity of inquiry.
That as a general state of mind has taken science to every frontier.
JASON: People ask me what I'm going to do when I get back to real life, but I feel like this is the real life, and what I do back home is the uh, the alternate life.
I think scientists generally tend to be more interested in the natural world than they are in other people.
True scientists need a degree of independence.
They spend their life in search of data and new scientific discovery.
JANE: Day after day, I climbed into the hills.
This was where I was meant to be.
SYLVIA: You have the joy of saying I really want to know what's out there.
Those are the explorers.
TOM: When you go work in these remote areas, you know, you're away from family and friends, and after you've had a career of doing that, that's a pretty big sacrifice to make.
JASON: Being gone most of the year, my family worries about me, but they just accept that this is my life.
When you're out here in the absolute middle of nowhere, I mean, you don't have all the distractions of the outside world.
You know, you spend a lot of time just reflecting on who you are as a person and what really matters in life.
Science outlives all of us.
How much power left? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): 2% remaining.
I'm going to Mars.
JAVIER: This is hard.
ROBERT: Yeah, the cold makes everything brittle.
JAVIER: No, I'm talking about this damn planet.
ROBERT: Says the father of the first Martian.
JAVIER: If she's even born.
Amelie's right.
This is not a place for human beings.
ROBERT: You think Earth is any less hostile? Solar flare hits there too, you know.
At least here there's no war, famine, or global warming.
JAVIER: Is this your idea of a pep talk? ROBERT: Well, if this doesn't make you feel any better, hopefully this will.
Yeah, baby.
I just hope we made it in time for Marta.
MIKE: RF's back up.
HANA: Marta, this is Command, come in.
Marta, can you hear me? AMELIE: If she's in extreme cold, she might be unconscious.
HANA: The rover's had to have lost power by now.
Hopefully the beacon's still functional.
MIKE: I think it is.
I've got a ping.
AMELIE: Oh my God, she's in Sector 7.
We'll never make it there in time.
MARTA: I'm going to Mars.
MAN: Is this more important than me? MARTA: This is more important than both of us.
MAN: Don't walk away from me like that! MARTA: Stop following me! MAN: Oh, yeah, there she is.
Hey, wake up.
You coming? Alright, come on.
MARTA: What are, what are you doing here? KURT: We're answering an SOS from your commander.
And looking at the condition you're in, we're going to go ahead and let that trespassing slide, okay? So come with us.
SHEP: Come on, we're going to get you out of here, all right? KURT: No, no, no.
MARTA: My samples.
KURT: No, it's okay, hey, calm down, calm down, calm down.
Listen, we're going to take them with us, all right? SHEP: We'll get you out of here.
KURT: Jen, here, take the damn bins.
JEN: You sure? KURT: Yes, I'm sure.
I'm just not sure I understand scientists.
See, we got them, you're okay.
We got them.
Shep, let's get her out.
SHEP: Here we go.
Looks like she's fading.
KURT: Get that new oxygen pack on there.
SHEP: We got you.
KURT: Hurry, we don't have much time! Come on.
Hey, Marta, stay with us! Stay with us! MAN: Ugh! Science is a slow, painful process.
JASON: I think we need to bring it back up.
And then try to run it back down again.
I think we're in a plunge pool.
MAN: Ready? PARDIS: So you have to have a certain amount of ruthlessness to just be so interested in solving something that with all the things pointing to you to give up, that you don't give up.
JASON: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Things aren't going so great for us today.
We fed the cable in a couple of times, but were only able to get a couple of meters below the water surface, so that tells us that we're getting hung up on something.
Sometimes it takes trial after trial after trial before we finally figure out some sort of way of snaking the cable in.
I'm a little frustrated that we're stuck.
In order to be a top-notch scientist, you'd have to be one of these people who's almost immune to disappointment.
You face skepticism from the general public, and opposition from people in power.
But you have to keep doing it and keep doing it and keep doing it.
JASON: It's just one of those things where you got to wake up every morning and, you know, realize that even though it didn't work the last 30 times, you're going to try something new until you make it work.
Sometimes the answers that we get, uh, to the questions that we're asking aren't really the ones that society wants, but we have to keep going out, asking questions, trying to understand how the planet works.
BILL: Science is the process by which we know nature.
It is the process by which we learn things that control our entire existence.
And most of the time, I would say it doesn't work the way you hoped.
But the more you are defeated, the more passionate you become.
And I think those are the kind of people we want going to Mars.
HANA: How is she? KURT: She's hypothermic.
But she's still full of piss and vinegar.
- AMELIE: Marta, are you okay? - MARTA: I'm fine.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Body temperature, 29 degrees Celsius.
AMELIE: You're not fine, you're severely hypothermic.
MARTA: My samples.
If there's any new microbial life, those bastards need to stop drilling.
SHEP: You're welcome.
JEN: She wants you to have these.
AMELIE: Bring the thermal blanket.
Let's get some warmers on her core.
WOMAN: Heart rate's up.
No change in body temperature.
AMELIE: You're lucky there wasn't more damage.
MARTA: You're mad at me.
AMELIE: No, I just don't understand you sometimes.
Why would you take such a risk? Was it worth it? MARTA: Has to be.
It's all I have, Amelie.
AMELIE: Okay, prep the IVs.
It's going to be fine.
HANA: Thank you, you and your crew, for doing what you did.
You saved her life.
Can I at least offer you a drink or something to eat before you go? KURT: I thought we were banned here.
HANA: Not anymore.
Oh boy.
You know, I have to admit that I kind of miss this place.
Lukrum has some high-end stuff, but the one thing we don't have is a bar.
HANA: Well, it became essential after living underground and in domes for years.
A place where people can relax and at least feel a little less claustrophobic.
KURT: That makes sense.
HANA: Anyway, here's to a fresh start.
KURT: Now wouldn't that be nice.
KURT: But.
You need to get a grip on your people first.
HANA: Excuse me? KURT: Look, the reality is that Marta made some choices that resulted in us getting involved.
I mean, you said yourself, we saved her life.
HANA: And as I said, we're deeply grateful.
KURT: I don't need grateful.
But I may need a favor at some point.
Some respect in the meantime.
KURT: Look, if she wanted a bag of rocks, she could have just asked.
You could have.
HANA: Are you questioning my leadership? KURT: Nope.
It's just an observation.
You know, commander to commander.
- AMELIE: Hey.
- JAVIER: What is it? Is Marta okay? AMELIE: She will be.
JAVIER: Is it the baby? AMELIE: No, no, no.
Uh, actually it's me.
I haven't been fair to you.
I, I haven't been honest about what I was feeling before.
And it's just that I was so ready to leave, and.
JAVIER: I understand.
You are about to have a child with a man you don't love.
AMELIE: No, no, that's not true, Javier.
I, I never said that I didn't love you.
It's just that I was scared that if I let myself love you, I wouldn't be able to leave.
But I'm not leaving now.
And I do love you.
But, I am scared.
JAVIER: Me too.
LESLIE: I hope you're not discouraged.
The chance of a solar flare hitting that area again is unlikely.
So many elements have to align, and a confluence of things have to happen for communications to be destroyed like they were, and where they were.

VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Transmission ended.
MIKE: You didn't tell them about Marta's actions, about the danger she put herself in, about the fact that she could have got herself killed out there.
HANA: No, because I think it's punishment enough.
Thank you, lieutenant.
JEN: Hey.
CAMERON: I didn't even hear you come in.
JEN: One of your techs was leaving, it's okay.
I'm not gonna contaminate anything.
So, how much longer do you have to work? CAMERON: Uh, well I'm done, actually.
How much longer can you stay? JEN: Ten minutes, maybe.
CAMERON: A lot can happen in ten minutes.
JEN: Yeah? CAMERON: Can you, uh, I just need to do one thing first.
Uh, comms, call Med Bay, ISO room.
So I've done a quick analysis.
MARTA: And? CAMERON: There are signs of life.
MARTA: I knew it.
CAMERON: But identical to the strain you already discovered.
I'm sorry, Marta.
I know how much this all means to you.
How much you've sacrificed.
I truly am sorry.
Cameras and comms set to private.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Privacy mode set.
