How do you feel?


What do you see?

White... room.


Carlo Bugatti throne chair.


Stenway, cuts of grand.


The nativity,

de Piero Della Francesca.

I am your father.

Handle it.


Am I?


Your son?

You are my creation.

What is your name?


Why don't you play something?

What would you like me to play?



The oldest choice.

The entry of the Gods

into Valhalla.

A little anemic,

not the orchestra.

May I ask you a question, father?


If you created me...

Who created you?

The question of the ages...

Which I hope you and I

will answer one day.

All this.

All these wonders of art...

design, human ingenuity...

All utterly meaningless in the face

of the only question that matters.

Where do we come from?

I refuse to believe

that man kind...

is a random by-product of

molecular circumstance.

No more than the result of..

Mere biological chance.


There must be more.

And you and I, son...

We will find it.

Allow me then a

moment to consider.

You seek your creator.

I am looking at mine.

I will serve you.

Yet you're human.

You will die.

I will not.

Bring me this tea, David.

Bring me the tea.

Nation Vessel:






Walter, it's time to recharge

the energy grid.

Please report to the bridge.

On my way, Mother.

Deploying energy

recharge cells now.

Cells deployed.

Recharge commencing now.

Seven bells and all's well.

Crew checks complete.

New security Code 31564-F.

Walter, we have a problem.

A neutrino burst was

detected in sector 106.

This could trigger a

destructive event.

Report to the bridge immediately.

On my way, Mother.

Warning, power surge detected.

Mother, retract the energy cells.

And channel all useless power.


Threat level:

Initiate emergency crew revival.


Non-essential personnel,

evacuate the cryo chamber immediately.

Daniels! Look at me,

look at me.

I need you to get up. Ok?

We're coming up early.

Override the SSP...

And breach the chamber now.

Look at me.

It's okay.

Hey, hey, come on up. Come on.

Captain! Captain!

Jacob! Wake up!

- Jake.

- Let them work.

Jake! Oh my God!

- Daniels, come on!

- Jake! Come on.

- Let them work.

- Jake.

Let them work!

Let them work!

- Get it open!

- Come on!

Jake! Jake!


Get her out of there! Get back!

Get back!

Hey! Where are you?

I miss you.

You take a look at this.

I know, I know.

I said I wouldn't go without you...

- Good?

- Yes.

Look at this!

Now get your ass up here.

I can't make any promises.

I love you.

They're your crew now.

They need a leader.

You believe in dream, right?

Sorry I'm late, sir.

No it's okay.

I can't think of any other

way to say it even.. to say are we...

We suffered a..

A monumental tragedy.

And I'm gonna do the

best that I can to...

to live up to Jacob, his,

fine example as your captain.

But he, he will be

sorely missed..

And I'm grateful in

advance for your support.

So, we lost 47 colonists...

and 16 second

generation embryos...

and, one, obviously

one crew member.

The current structural integrity

of the ship is holding at 83%...

but we have many secondary

systems that are offline.

So what was it?

A highly charge shock wave

from nearby stellar ignition.

As the cells were

deploying for recharge...

we absorbed the full

burn of the storm.

And Walter...

I will want you and mother

time to go a complete...

core code review so

that we can understand

how's those happened

in the first place.

It was a random

localized event, sir.

There is no way to detect

spontaneous stellar flares...

until it's too late.

It was bad luck.

Alright, Faris,

I don't believe in luck.

I'm not interested in luck.

I prefer that we be

more capable...

and prepared than lucky.

Observation, reflection, faith...

and determination.

In this way we may navigate the

path as it unfolds before us.

Alright? We have what?

Eight more recharge

cycles to go...

before we get to Origae-6?

- Is that a question, sir?

- Yes, Walter, that's a question.

That is correct.

So let's get this ship fixed..


Let's uh, let's get to work.

Sir, excuse me.

- Sir.

- Yes?

We just lost 47 colonists

and our captain.

We need to acknowledge that.

I completely understand.

But if we don't make

these repairs...

We will lose all the colonists.

Yeah, we should do something

for Captain Brason at least.

This is not a discussion.



The terraforming

module is stable...

but the connecting

struts took some damage.

I still need to

check the vehicles.

I can help...

if you like.


Walter, How long do you predict

before we can make our next jump?

Repairs should take

approximately 48 hours.

But we should make an effort

to vacate the sector...

in case of after flares.

Absolutely agreed.

So let's get to work ok?

Dismissed. Thank you.

C-62 open.

Seal C-62. Open Airlock 17.

Open door to terraforming bay.


Tensions are 15% down.



Copy that.

Wasn't my idea.

Jake have this dream of us

building a cabin on the new world.

Like pioneers.

A cabin on a lake.

There is a lake in the

terraforming zone on Origae-6.

I mean a real cabin

made of real wood.

So in the ship storage, there's
