This loading will never end:

'Pegasus' will never take off

And now here comes more trouble.

Tell me. please,

Are you the flight taking animals to the zoo?


- Are you Captain Seleznev?

- Well, actually I'm Professor Seleznev.

- Professor Seleznev. It's all the same.

- And I'm Alice.

That is of no importance. What is important

is that you should fly past Aldebran.

- What's going on?

- Nothing.

You must simply deliver this cake to my

nephew Kolya. It's his birthday.

- Where is this cake?

- Here. As you can see.

You call that a cake?

What, do you think my nephew is going to

eat alone, or with his friends?

What do you think?

I don't think anything.

I won't be flying anywhere.

No, you will be flying, captain...

You will fly - for the Moscow zoo

needs rare animals.

The old lady's words proved true

- on June 12th 2181 Captain Zelonii...

...Professor Seleznev and his daughter Alice

left on a search for rare animals.

Tomorrow, we refuel and

start for the Planet Bluk.

So, today we rest.

And I'm playing football.

Today, here on the moon, there's a match

between the Earth and the Planet Fixx

- I shall go with Alice.

- Good. she shouldn't go off alone.

But I'm already nine!

What can happen to me on the moon

in the 22nd century?

There would be enough trouble with you

even in the 20th century.

Seleznev. Seleznev, old friend!

It can't be! How many light winters!

How many light years!

What are you doing here?

- We're flying after rare animals, Gromozeka.

- For animals? How wonderful!

And how's your daughter? Talking already?

Talking too much!

She already finished the second year.

Really? How time flies...

So, the second year you say?

- Yes.

- That calls for a celebration!


400 drops of valerian and a salad.

Hmm.. I asked for 400 drops,

but there are 402 here.

400 drops, we never make mistakes.

Now then, Did you hear that?

Everyone's always arguing with me.

Nobody likes me.

What are you saying?

Everyone likes you, Gromozeka!


Now, what have you heard about the

Planet of the Captains?

Well, it's a familiar name.

Yes, there is a museum there, named

after the Two Captains.

Together they conquered

the jungles of Evridk.

They wiped out the lair of the pirates

of Glot. They were such...

Yes, yes! I know all this!

And did you know, that the captains

met a mass of rare animals?

Well, would you like to find them?

I would, Gromozeka, thank you.

Is it far?

I'ts very near, 100 parsecs!

By the way, the director there is a

Doktop Verkhovtsev.

My old friend.

He'll show you the Captains' diary.

There he is...

Doctor Verkhovtsev!


Now, why did he run away from me?


Well, does it matter? He's still a friend.
