They ready for us?

This storm's really kicking up a mess.

I can't get through to the tower.

Here's your coffee, Mr. McSimms.

Three sugars and two whites.

Just the way you like it.

You want some?

No, thanks.

How long?

About 40.

Shining Canyon.

Shining Canyon, this is

Trans Marineris 74 Yankee.

ETA, 40 minutes.

Everybody check your equipment.

I don't want any surprises.

Is everything all right,


I couldn't help but notice that charming

little scene with the queen bee.

Yeah, well, you know how

the service is, Sergeant.

She figures if I want to make captain,

I'll have to pay the price.

Thing is, I don't give a damn

about wearing another bar.

It could be that.

Or maybe she just has

good taste in women.

Sergeant, you are

seriously out of line.

I'd hate to spoil my record.

All right. I know you think

you're some pretty tough hombres.

You've had the best training.

You have the best gear.

You probably think this is

some routine prisoner transfer.

But that's what I want

to bang into your heads.

There's nothing routine

about this prisoner.

We are here to pick up

James "Desolation" Williams.

I want you all jack-ready

and double tough.

Officers, you can disembark here.

What time is departure?

We need at least half an hour

to secure our prisoner.

We got about

a four-hour turnaround...

and we'll be back

at this spot at about 2200.

You can re-board any time after that.

See if you can raise

the yard master, will ya?

Ed? Ed, you out there?

Rookies, use your breathers.

We're not gonna have air like Earth

for ten more years. Let's go.

- God, I hate this thing.

- You'll get used to it.

Two years ago, we were still

wearing full-face breathers.

It takes about a month to get over

the headaches out here.
