- Franklin!?


It's Kanelo.

Franklin, are you here!?

Tell me what the scan says.

- Pod 396 was accessed by...

- I know who accessed it!

Are there survivors?

- Well, it's been over a month

so the probability of survival


- Tell me.

- There is a bio signature.

Something or someone is alive.

Wait, no there are two,

there are two bio signatures.

[dramatic music]

[Alana gasps]

- She's still alive.


- How did you get on that pod?

That was priority craft

for essential personnel.

Where is Commander Franklin?

- She's suffered a severe

trauma and dehydration.

She's nearly comatose.

- Can we Mem her?

- I'd question its reliability.

Let's give time for the

stimulant to work.

- How long until she comes out

of it?

- [Doctor] Hard to say.

Maybe several hours, maybe


I'll come back to update her


- Thank you, doctor.

[dramatic music]

That's all.

[door hisses]


Mem her.

- Yes, sir

if you're willing to take

the risk considering...

- Don't you dare rub that in my


Mem her.

- [Reporter] With air quality

now reaching toxic levels

a group of insurgents have tried

to breach the domes reserved for


This comes on the eve of

[dramatic music]


- Lieutenant, is everything


- Yes, captain.

We're back online now, sir.

[dramatic music]

- Mr. Langdon, it's an

honor and a pleasure

to have you with us, sir.

- Thank you, Captain.

- As you can see our

crew have little to do

but monitor the magnificently

designed nav

and control systems.

- Now there's no need

to flatter me, captain.

I'm well aware of the

beauty of my inventions

and your systems command manager

is a non-citizen?

- Yes, sir.

This is Lieutenant Miller.

- I hope she didn't buy into

those rumors about Hesperides.

They're not accepting

citizenship applications,

not even for employees of UGS.



- Is everything stable,


- Sir, request permission

for manual override.

- She's allowed to do that?

- Sir, I am authorized...

- You don't ever speak to me.

If I may, sir?

- Please.

- On my ship non-citizen crew

are held to the same standards

as any citizen member.

I trained Lieutenant Miller


- Sir, do I have your

permission to proceed.

- I designed the system

to be a better pilot

than any human, citizen or not.

- Lieutenant,

keep the auto drive engaged.

- Yes, captain.

- When I have control of my own


the only thing a roach,

a non-citizen will be doing

is cleaning the toilets.


- Mr. Langdon, let us see

the view from the bow.

I believe Kapteyn's Star is in


It is a beautiful little red


- We would enjoy that.

- Lieutenant.

- I'm okay.

- You look terrible.

Go to the medic bay.

Officer Xian, assume

command for the Lieutenant.

- Yes, sir.

[door hisses]


[dramatic music]

- Good morning, Lieutenant.

[dramatic music]

- Lieutenant Miller, what's

going on?

- You shouldn't have come

in here if you need...

- I'm fine, I'm just

feeling a bit nauseated.

- All right, let's have a look.

She did get the contraceptive


- Yes, I reported for


along with all the other female


- Well, she's pregnant.

Sit down, we'll take care of it.



I should go back to the command


Are you okay?

- Yes, go.


- [Computer] All UGS personnel
