Space Station 76

Synopsis: Space Station 76 is a refueling satellite near an alternate-reality Earth, circa 1976. Jessica arrives to serve as the station's new first mate. While she narrates a piece about how she likes the predictability of asteroids, some placidly drifting asteroids are shown colliding in chain-reaction fashion. While at first the station appears normal and the people friendly, Jessica soon discovers that the people on board have issues due to the isolation and stress of being cooped up with one another in a relatively small space far from Earth. This is in addition the usual problems people struggle with, such as infidelity, loneliness, depression, and drug abuse. She tries to make friends and fit in, but, unable to connect meaningfully with anyone, she becomes lonely. She's baffled and disillusioned by the stiff and irritable Captain Glenn, who harbors secrets of his own. She finds herself drawn to Ted, a lonely, married crewman, and his 7 year-old daughter, Sunshine. Ted yearns to reconnect

JESSICA:
I've always been amazed

that asteroids can fly in groups

for millions of years

and never touch each other or connect.

They are dead rock

so they find their perfect orbit

and stick to it.

We also want to find

that place of perfection.

But we're not asteroids.

We change, and that's the problem.

The more you try to create a paradise

the more you will resent the prison.

And all you're left with is dreams

of a future

that never happened.

[]

City in my head

Utopia

Heaven in my body

Utopia

It's time for me

For me to go

[COMPUTER BEEPS]

SHIP:

Unidentified pod approaching.

Scan ship identification code.

SHIP:

Scanning.

[PANEL BEEPING]

SHIP:

Counting down. Five, four,

three, two, one...

[BEEPING STOPS]

Lieutenant Marlowe,

you're cleared for landing.

Welcome to Omega 76.

Your room is number 3 on B Level.

Get situated, report to Medical.

I'll meet you on the bridge at 1800 hours.

SHIP:

Docking bay door opening.

Docking bay door closing.

[PANEL BEEPS]

SHIP:

Welcome to the Omega 76 refueling station.

Are you in need of food, lodging or fuel?

Uh, no, thank you.

[ALARM BEEPS]

SHIP:

Caution. UV rays present.

Mom?

SHIP:

Main level. Elevator doors closing.

Hello.

Hmm.

SHIP:

Lieutenant Commander Marlowe,

please report to the medical capsule.

It gives shots.

It's just a routine physical.

They need to make sure

I didn't bring anything

onto the ship

they don't know about.

MEDBOT:

Initiating diagnostic mammography.

[SIGHS]

Glandular tissue results are normal.

[BEEPS]

It's cold.

MEDBOT:

Lieutenant Commander Marlowe,

I have detected some irregularities

in the uterus.

I'm aware of the irregularities.

Dr. Bot, hi.

Welcome, Misty.

I need to tell you

I have just been feeling

so much better

since we started treatment.

I mean, like, even just my dreams

have just been better.

You know, like, I haven't been

having all those feelings

and I'm just really feeling

in the now.

Feelings can sometimes pull one out

of the now and put them in the then.

Live in the now, not in the then.

I don't wanna be in the then.

I wanna be in the now.

Talking about the now

can put one in the then.

I don't want to be in the then, I want

to be in the now. I wanna move forward...

Don't move too far forward,

you'll be out of the now.

Not too far forward.

Stay in the now.

I want to stay in the now.

I am in the now. Right now.

This knob is the ship's thrust control,

which works on a sliding scale of 50.

Obviously, we'd never take it that far.

If, in the case of a proximity warning,

this red light here will go off

and an alert will sound,

which brings me

to the navigation systems.

Have you worked

with any of the F series?

I have worked

with the entire F series, sir.

F15?

Yes, sir.

You've navigated using the F15?

Yes.

I don't know why you didn't stop me.

I'm sorry, I didn't want to interrupt you.

Well, the F15... Wow, wow.

Well, little lady, I'm impressed.

It's Jessica.

What?

My name is Jessica, sir.

I know your name,

Lieutenant Marlowe. Thank you.

Captain Glenn Terry,

here is your Harvey Wallbanger.

Uh, I didn't order that.

But sir...

I'd never order an alcoholic beverage

on the bridge.

You ordered at exactly...

Ted ordered that.

My records indicate you ordered...

Take that to Ted.

So, well, I guess I can skip

the how-do-you-do's,

and put you right to work.

That's what I'm here for, sir.

SHIP:

Attention, crew.

Tonight's luau begins in the rec room

at 1800 hours.

[GUITAR STRUMMING CHORDS]

Could we not do that tonight?

Yeah.

Maintenance Technician Ted,
