Synopsis: Chief of Scouts Ed Bannon narrowly avoids an Apache ambush while working with the cavalry stationed at Fort Clark, Texas. The US Army is trying to talk peace with the Apaches and move them to reservations in Florida, and they take Bannon's efforts as detrimental to their new policies, so they fire him. When the Apache chief's son Torinada returns from an Eastern education, Bannon becomes highly suspicious of his motives based run-ins with Torinada in the past. Bannon continues shadowing the proceedings to the chagrin of both the US Army and the Apache warrior.

Two generals claim the power. Lang wins

the war. Hatch is hiding in the shadows.

Once a year, on Liberation Day,

victory is celebrated slowly.

Many of Hatch's followers

treason executed in public.

Rumors making the rounds, Hatch was

attacking those prisons to free his men.

His place of residence is unknown.

Rumors making the rounds, Hatch was

those prisons to free his men.

His whereabouts are unknown.

-It's time! Fix this!

-It's dead!

-Can you fix it?

-We need him!

-Do you know how to fix this?

So fix it!

Back to war!

Back to war!

-Get down!

Get down!

Does anybody else

want to try that?

-You know who I am?

-You're Gray Cortland's kid.

Your father and I took

down three of prisons before ???

This was the first one

we weren't prepared for.

That fail safe device?

It's just the start.

This might hurt a little bit.

Give me your head.

If we're gonna win this war,

I need information.

-What's that got

to do with me?

-It's on a ship.

We're leaving tomorrow.

You know it.

-Do I?

The same crash ship you

flew in when you leaped guard.

They caught him, Kye.

Your father.

You're gonna make an

example of him.

-Where is he?

-New Holland.

On Liberation Day

the ax falls.

But I promise you, Kye.

We can stop that ax from falling.

-Last time I saw my old

man he had a 3 minute window to talk.

He was paranoid.

He kept looking over his

shoulder every 15 seconds.

Just in case he was being watched.

Is that the kind of

guy you think I am?

One who enjoys looking

over his shoulder?

-You know what I hate about prison?

You throw a wolf into a cage

and all you are going to

get is an angry wolf.

throw a man in with the whole pack?

They just make each other worse.


if he comes out of

there, clean,

you think that means he was fixed?


It means he didn't belong

there in the first place.

You see, the real bad wolves,

they can't be fixed.

-Maybe you want to tell

me what it is you're getting at.

-You get in,

get the goods,

and I pick you up.

No one gets hurt.

Then we go to New Holland

and we swoop down there

like angels into hell.

And we get your old man out.

Arrowhead class.

Model B.

I think it suits you.

-Killing us?

-I have a few tricks to hide

You ready?


I'm good.

-That's the back-end

of the whole system.

All you got to do is plug in,

and your wrist link

will do the rest.

-A lot of it has

been updated

But not all of it.

This is new.

-We got to down some

systems to get access.

It's temporary.

Just confirm.

-This doesn't feel right!


As soon as that

transfer's done,

it will all start to back up.

Is it close?


It's moving.

-There's some kind of

storm out here!

We just took off

the ship's raincoat.

-Warning, unstable

electromagnetic activity!

Final systems offline.

-Transfers done.

What next?

-Send that data across to me.

-What do you mean,

just send it to you?

-It's pretty unstable

out here, kid.

Trust me on this.

-Now what?


-Shuttle deploying in...




-Welcome, guest.

-Hatch do you read me?

-Let's log in.


Preliminary readings indicate a

native toxic atmosphere.

Prolonged exposure might cause

paralysis or death.

-How we doing?

We got power?

-I'd be happy to answer that.

Let's log in.

What is your name?

Let's log in.

-Just let me think for a second.

-Understood, guest.

I have knowledge.


-Please seek alternative oxygen source.

-How long do we have?

-I'd be happy to answer that.

Let's log in.

-Attention, survivors.

This is Oleander.

Crash site is visible.

Get there as soon as you can.

I repeat:
get to the

main crash site.

-I'm going out there

and drag back someone

you will talk to.

-Good luck, guest.

-Yeah, I won't hold my breath.

I'm not seeing from

the ground, Hatch.

Let me know how

you want to handle this.

Let's log in.

It's okay, you

don't need it.

shuttle breathing at 12 %.

- 12 % won't last long.

So what are you?



-You don't know the shuttle,

Your uniform isn't within regulation

and I'm pretty sure I

didn't see you at the launch pad.

-Welcome, guest.

Let's log in.

-And I guess you

didn't get a log in.

-Welcome, Tarren Hollis.


Locate the the Arrowhead wreckage.


-Arrowhead wreckage not in range.

-It's a big planet.

If you want to spot

your ship,

Now you get to high ground.

-Well, the escape pods are leaving

and I'm not going to

be here when they do.


Data's safe, buddy, I

can't send it from here.

Where the hell are you?

-It's a moon.


-It's not a planet.

It's a moon.


How do you know?

-Because that is a planet.

And we're on its moon.

-You really have time

for a science lesson?

-It's a research probe.

We deployed in advance.

We're gonna collect it.

But I mean...look at it.

We sent it out just

four hours before the crash.

-This thing looks 50 years old.


Exact model number,

the exact same probe.

-We should keep moving.

-It's completely oxidized.

If this is what the

atmosphere did to metal,

imagine what it's

doing to human tissue.


Let's keep moving.

-Now, this...

This is what you're looking for.


That's our cue.



-I don't know.

It wasn't there before.

-You sure?

-It's definitely new.

-It's a rock.

Kye, lesson's over. Let's go.

-Welcome, guest.

What is your name?
