There are days when wake up

don't know what I'm doing here

I barely recognize

The pair of eyes

Staring back at me

In the mirror

But there was a day when I was free

Not a care that I could see

So good I barely could believe

That it was happening

Oh, take me back again

I was 16 with an open heart

Windows down in a beat-up car

When I was down and the world was young

And she was beautiful

She was beautiful

She was beautiful

How do we end up like this?

Living lives that we don't care about

Too busy fixing things

On computer screens

While the grass grows green

Me, I'm screaming out

There was a day that I was free

Not a care that I could see

So good I barely could believe

That it was happening

Oh, take me back again

Oh, l was 16

With an open heart

Windows down in a beat-up car

When I was done and the world was young

And she was beautiful

She was beautiful

She was beautiful

She was beautiful

Now, this particular specimen

dates back to the Plethorillium period.

The Plethorillium period?

Yeah, yeah, very big vmh the Prethorillium stegasaura...

- Whatever-atops.

- Oh I thought that was a new app?

Where'd you get this one again?

Gibbard Woods, Camping trip with my dad three years ago.

Nice. Hows he doing?

Living the small town life.

What was this one?

I picked it up when you asked me to Homecoming.

Oh, yeah?

BFFs at FHH. Firestone High Homecoming.

And by BFF I assume you mean

"brilliant, fetching, Finlandian man"?

That's exactly what I meant.


Checked lnstagram lately?

Last time I looked, we were blowing up.

214. What?

- That's a lot of likes.

- Josh has a lot of friends.

Isn't it time for us to go?

Annie's mom said she could eat over.

Good. We have a few minutes.

I'd love to hear more about Homecoming.

He's gotta go.

Yeah, I gotta go.

- (mouths words)

- Maybe another time Ms. Harlow.

Say hi to your folks.

Tell your mom I loved her chicken salad recipe.

I will.

Be careful walking home.

Yeah, end of the hall's a dangerous neighborhood.

So, are you and Josh still just friends?

So, are you and Josh still just friends?

Yes, we're still just friends.

Are you sure?

You two are so cute together, and you seem--

Can you please just stop?

Honey, I just want to know what's going on in my daughter's life.

A little late for that.

Hey, are you okay?

- (muffled car alarms)

- (woman screams)

- (muffled screams)

- (sirens wailing)

(sirens continue)


- Have you seen him?

- Who?

Michael, my baby.

- No, I don't know.

- Michael!


(sirens wailing)

My Wife!

She was right here.




We're sorry. All circuits are busy now.

Oh, come on!

Come on.

- (door opening)

- (gasps)

Claire? Annie?

- Gabby!

- Ahh!

Whoa. It's me.

Are you okay?

- I was afraid--

- I'm fine, I'm fine.

Where's Claire?

I don't know.

I didn't see any empty clothes.

You know about that?

My parents, their bodies...

...they're gone.

My mom, too.

- What is going on?

- I don't know?

If Claire's clothes aren't here,

that means she's alive somewhere.

Where would she go?

Josh, look.

She wasn't here when it happened.

She went for ice cream.

- (glass breaking)

- (sirens wailing)


He's got Claire!


- Hey!

- Hey!

- Gabby!

- Get away from her.

- Hey, I was just--

- Hey, back off!

- You okay?

No, he helped me!

When those guys came in

and Annie-- she disappeared.

It's okay. It's safe in here.

She looks pale.

Drink some water.

I'm Pastor Barnes. This is our church.

I'm Josh.

Gene Roddenberry

Eugene Wesley Roddenberry (August 19, 1921 – October 24, 1991) was an American television screenwriter and producer. He is best remembered for creating the original Star Trek television series. Born in El Paso, Texas, Roddenberry grew up in Los Angeles, where his father was a police officer. Roddenberry flew 89 combat missions in the Army Air Forces during World War II, and worked as a commercial pilot after the war. Later, he followed in his father's footsteps and joined the Los Angeles Police Department, where he also began to write scripts for television. As a freelance writer, Roddenberry wrote scripts for Highway Patrol, Have Gun–Will Travel, and other series, before creating and producing his own television series The Lieutenant. In 1964, Roddenberry created Star Trek, which premiered in 1966 and ran for three seasons before being canceled. He then worked on other projects, including a string of failed television pilots. The syndication of Star Trek led to its growing popularity; this, in turn, resulted in the Star Trek feature films, on which Roddenberry continued to produce and consult. In 1987, the sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation began airing on television in first-run syndication; Roddenberry was heavily involved in the initial development of the series, but took a less active role after the first season due to ill health. He continued to consult on the series until his death in 1991. In 1985, he became the first TV writer with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he was later inducted by both the Science Fiction Hall of Fame and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame. Years after his death, Roddenberry was one of the first humans to have his ashes carried into earth orbit. The popularity of the Star Trek universe and films has inspired films, books, comic books, video games, and fan films set in the Star Trek universe. more…
