This is interesting.

Do you know what part that is?

The Shepard Accelerator.

Eight billion

are counting on us. What are you saying?

I don't have a problem with you.

But your German boyfriend

over here, I do.

-Go back to your quarters.

-Don't treat me like you're my mother.

You're not.

-Okay, that's enough.

- Hey, chill out, Volky.

Two years on this station,

and this man has delivered nothing.


You need to think very carefully

about what you're saying.

We've both heard the reports.

Germany is preparing for war

and everyday that goes by,

more and more Russians are starving.

Maybe you're not in a hurry

to get the Shepard working.

Easy! Easy!

This stops now!

If we can't keep our shit together

up here,

how can we ever expect them

to do it down there?

-Maybe they won't!

-Keep your mouth shut!

We have a job to do.

Another test aboard

the Cloverfield Space Station.

The 47th test in just over two years

is scheduled for

00 AM Eastern Standard Time.

All eyes are on--

This is Huntsville...

we've got eyes and ears.

Morning, Huntsville.

Copy that.

-Schmidt, system status?

-Green across the board.

Right this minute, they are

testing a particle accelerator up there,

so we can learn how to make

unlimited energy down here.

But those who have accepted

the Cloverfield Paradox is real...

Shepard holding

for pre-ignition.

Commander, Shepard team standing by

for your go.

Diagnostic mode off.

X-Deck modification complete.

Stabilizer active.

Qinhuangdao, confirm pre-ignition

sequencing authorization.

You're a go

for accelerator pre-ignition.

Huntsville and Qinhuangdao Control,

we'll call you post blackout.


- Stand by for protocol go.

Why does the accelerator

worry you so much?

Because that accelerator is

1000 times more powerful
