Project Connection: A planetary operation

to build two machines in our planet's orbit.

Known simple as Machine I and Machine II.

To form a link with the nearest

planet believed to have intelligent life.

The mission:

60 years ago Machine II was sent across

our galaxy towards the chosen planet.

The unmanned voyage across 20 light years

of space was completely autonomous.

Once Machine II arrives in orbit

the machines will connect...

...enabling instant transport

between the two planets.

Today is connection day.

Flight A:
An unmanned probe successfully

tested the connection and gathered basic data.

Flight B:

Next a manned mission will orbit the planet

twice and reconnoiter before returning.

We are just checking the last data packet.

We've confirmed those trajectories,

we just have one more maneuver to issue.

Recommending one more correction

of 24.0 and 3.5 degrees.


Twenty-four degrees

positive pitch plus red 3.5.


Okay, begin burn on my count.

On five, four, ignition ready...

...two, one, begin.











Great, we can confirm

you have a lock with entrance.

Ten second countdown to machine

engagement on my mark.


Eight, seven...

...six, five...

...four, three...

...two, one.

What's happening, is there a problem?

Is there a problem?

Negative, the link is being confirmed,

and we are clear for transit.

Okay, we have received your final package

and cleared you for control.

Launch when ready.

Captain James to Com 1.

First transmission from E581.

There was a problem on arrival

and I've crash-landed on the planet.

From what I've seen so far,

it isn't what we expected...'s barren and there's no sign

of intelligent life.

I have enough food and water

to last me five days.

With the communications delay, I expect

to hear from you within three hours.


Fucking hell!


Come on, where are you?

Captain James to Com 1.

I've been on E581 now for almost 24 hours...

...and I've still had

no communications from you.

Hopefully, it's a problem

with my equipment...

...and you've already

got a rescue on the way.

I have lost my water supply... today I have to find another source...

...or there will be no one to rescue.

I will continue to send my reports.


They're hunting.


No one's coming for me.

James to Com 1.

Things are looking a bit desperate down here.

I've had no contact from you,

and I'm down to three rations.

I've had to start thinking

about a backup plan.

I have seen that there is

intelligent life here...

...and they have machines.

And if they have machines, then maybe

they can get me back into orbit.

Right now they're my only hope

of getting home.

I get it, you want this.

Captain James to Com 1.

I've found something,

some kind of a container.

The entire thing is

covered in alien language.

They moved underground.

We need to find your owners.

Where the f*ck are you going?

He's going home.

Captain James to Com 1.

The surface of this planet has suffered

from a devastating war.

I believe the machines

are serving their creators...

...who are sheltering beneath the surface.

I hope soon to make contact...

...and with a little luck...

...make use of them and their

technology to get me home.

Let's see where you're going to take me.

Why have we stopped?

Are we here?

Nah, this ain't it.

Get in here! Get in here now!


Damn it!

Come on!


Com 1 to Captain James.

We have received your transmissions...
