- So we are in orbit! I'm not sure what it is, but I know we're traveling by something called "space" I'm sick, I was sick.
Why the hell am I here, I was in a hospital I know, this is the cryogenic safe.
But why am I here? I was put on hold.
Virus radiation.
How long do I have? - It was 400 years since the accident - How long ??? Two hours.
I am sorry, Doctor.
We did not know of his illness.
Why mess with what you do not understand? Why not leave me out if they can not help me? Because We need help! There is no more crew! The ARK is on a collision course! Sorry, Doctor.
I apologize.
Jane I have to find her.
She's dead now.
Just may be.
I feel the Lazarus back from the dead, it's like like a dead waking up.
None of this was in my plans.
You see, I must be dead for five hundred years, but for what you say, none of us will survive.
Aaron, Do you remember my wife, always worrying about everything with my health My memory is slow, I can not remember REMEMBER why you need me.
It was something about a collision? The spherical projector told me the ARK is on a collision course with a star class G.
What about the course corrections made by the crew? The crew.
The bridge.
Doctor, I told you There are crew.
They all died.
What about the thermonuclear reactors? I've heard but do not know what it is.
Oh well A terranave ARK é movida a energia nuclear.
How long we are on a collision course? - 400 years.
- From the little we know, we look like - There should be term forecast one.
- No there is not.
Then the end can come at any time We looked out the bridge, but only saw distant stars.
Doctor Doctor, we brought back to tell us what to do.
We are talking about the lives of everyone in the ARK, including my own, - I'll do what I can.
- Do not have much time.
Maybe we can find someone who can help.
I think Dr.
Aaron should come back.
- Not a bad idea, maybe later - There may be no later.
I will do what I can, but I am a communications engineer.
I do not understand anything reactors.
Communications engineer? My wife was nuclear engineer, worked together on this project.
Maybe maybe you can help us.
If she's here, I need to find out.
We talked about it, it may be! There must be some information.
What was this? Maybe Garth has returned! Is Garth? Garth! Garth? They got him are many! If we escape, we can not defend Garth.
They can kill you or not.
I think they're using it as bait.
But I will not take the bait.
Can you open the door? Yes, but if you go out you will not have a chance.
What can we do? Look in the supply cabin, should find sedative bottles.
Be careful when handling, they can be activated with sudden movements.
I found! - How many? - Four.
We will try.
I need something to bring them together Join them.
We need a bit of tape.
What are you going to do? Look for gas masks.

always love you so.
With you, our life was so complete.

I had to stay back and continue my work.
After all, I still have some time.
What, according to doctors, you do not have.
not as do not find cure for the virus of radiation.
I know that someday there will be healing.
I wish you a full and productive life, then, this is my goodbye.
Sorry, I have no words It must be hard to see me saying that.
I hope that you keep good memories of me as well as keep her.
Eu te amo, Jerry If you did not, I'd be dead now, Devon.
I tried to explain to them that we are not enemies.
Friend, who are you? Where they came from? Our Place of the Dead is forbidden to outsiders.
We dominated this place.
We wait.
Let's get all of you.
Hey, wait.
Listen, friend.
I know how it feels isolated.
I came from a place where people live like that, so We can work together, we can help each other.
Help us? Bah! Nobody ever helps us.
Strangers come, take what they want.
My people will come.
- Listen to me.
- Devon! He is weakening! Garth? Let us take you back to the safe.
- Dr.
Aaron, - Devon, The ARK communication system is fully integrated, Computers deal with everything that has been stored, all types of information.
You can access from anywhere, but I could spend a month talking about it, and not go into details.
But some domes have construction manuals, written culture, books, as Omicron.
Some jump tubes have sketch maps, showing paths for different parts of da terranave ARK.
You must find them, they should save themselves and everyone at ARK or we're all doomed.
The People of the tubes, I was thinking there was nothing like this in the ARK in my time.
Residents had guards in the security body, whose duty was to protect the command 24 hours a day.
Isolated for centuries, they They must have degenerated in these people out here.
The Domo 2, a dome reserve, can be helpful.
It was not used, an Agrarian dome used to be used for retirees crew It is the Cam-puder for, and estabelecê-the may have a chance for a better life.
Doctor okay, really.
I'm ready.
Hurry up, Devon! They are opening the door! A criogenia funciona automaticamente.
You can use the activator? Thank you, Doctor.
Aaron, e quanto a Jane? What about her? We could not help but overhear It must have been wonderful.
I can say the same about you and Devon.
They can not hide their feelings for each other.
You know it's hard for us Cypress Corners, did not talk much love.
only duty to the Elders Yes but You are no longer in Cypress Corners It started a long and difficult journey, Now you have a duty, a responsibility, working to save all people in the ARK all people, in all biospheres.
I'm ready.
Adeus, Dr.
I see them! EI you! Hang on! Devon, look! Throw it.
Hold your arms.
Rachael! Bandages.
- Must have at the medical center.

Keep it stopped.
I stopped Let us help you Hold it, Garth.
Let's fix that.
You will feel better.
Well it's ready! Are you feeling better? Hopefully! My good people! I could have died with it! but they saved me! We should be friends.
Give back the thing that triggers.
Friends There is a dome a place where everyone can go and live a better life.
Aaron told us about it.
It's like the place from which I said, where we come from, Cypress Corners.
We'll show you.
You will show us this place? Come on.
The place is behind this door.
We never managed to go through a door that.
You will.
Do not trust them! They lie! An apple! Is true! Everything you say is true! We live here.
