Pandorum

Synopsis: Two crew members are stranded on a spacecraft and quickly - and horrifically - realize they are not alone. Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It's pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can't remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's shocking, deadly secrets are revealed...and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.

Good luck.

God bless.

And Godspeed.

Bower.

Bower.

( groaning )

''ln the event

of mild memory loss

resulting from

extended hypersleep...''

( clicking )

Lieutenant!

Lieutenant Payton!

( panting )

( rumbling )

( rumbling stops )

Hey. Hey.

( screams )

( gasping )

- Who are you?

- l'm Bower.

Corporal Bower, sir.

Bower?

Bower?

You're waking

from extended hypersleep.

- Bower?

- This is disorientation.

Could you get that

fucking light out of my eyes?

Sorry, sir.

( groans )

Where are we?

Aboard the Elysium.

The Elysium?

Where are we?

l don't know.

Where's the rest of the crew?

ls it our shift?

- Our rotation?

- l believe so.

Aren't they supposed

to be here to wake us up?

l don't know.

Hit the lights, will you?

There's a problem

with the power, sir.

( groaning )

Who woke you up?

lt had to have been

the flight computer.

There's no one here

except us.

lt's cold.

l've been awake for over an hour

and l still can't remember anything.

The last time l crawled out

of a hyperbunk

it took me quite a while

to get it all back.

What was your--

what was your last flight, sir?

l don't know.

Sir, do you even know

where we're going?

l remember the training,

but not the destination,

the mission.

l figured you'd tell me.

Payton:

lf this really is our ship,

then this room should

be locked into position

and behind that door

should be the bridge.

Jesus.

Somebody was trying to get out.

- Lieutenant.

- ( blows )

None of the activators are working.

Yeah, it figures.

Without unified threading

we can't connect.

Hold on here.

We can at least

get this station to work.

( humming )

( laughs )

l didn't even think of that.

( chuckles )

All right. Jesus.

Lieutenant Payton on the com.

Anybody copy?

This is Lieutenant Payton

of flight team--

Shit.

- 5.

- How do you know that?

This is Lieutenant Payton

of flight team 5.

Anybody copy?

Anyone respond.

This is Lieutenant Payton

of flight team 5.

Anybody awake up there?

Team 4 is supposed

to be here for flight rotation.

Where could they be?

Maybe they couldn't get to us.

Where did he go?

( rumbling )

Power systems must be free floating

between uncoupled circuits,

or something the override grid

won't even lock in.

What do you think?

( rumbling stops )

( clanking )

Somebody's up there.

Uh, it's ventilation.

The system keeps rebooting

after each surge.

That could be anything.

Listen, l think we should

get out of here.

l'd rather be up and out

than stuck in the trunk, wouldn't you?

Test test.

Test test.

Payton:
Copy.

Lift me up.

Our 2nd lieutenant must

have come through here.

lt's the only way.

lt's fucking dark in here.

Payton:
Don't worry.

Just take the first way out.

l'll guide you back here to open

the doors from the outside.

How are we doing?

See anything?

Nothing yet.

Not a single vent opening

or anything.

What about on your end?

( rumbling )

Power surges keep happening

in longer increments just like you said.

Reactor timing is offset in the core.

lt's trying to reconnect.

But it won't until it's reset.

Payton:

How do you know that?

l don't know.

l can't even remember my-- Jesus Christ!

But l know everything there is

to know about that damn reactor.
