- Hello to you.

- Hello to you.

I hope you're fine.

Who knows the

electron wave functions

for Kryptonian

covalent bonding?



The cube root

of the wavelength...

- Greetings.

- Greetings.

- Hello, Kara.

- Hello to you.

Oh' it is beautiful.

What's that gonna be, Zaltar?

I think...a tree.

A tree.

What is a tree?

A lovely thing

which grows on Earth.

Earth? You mean

where my cousin went?

Hmm, and to where,

one day soon perhaps

I might venture as well.

I don't believe you. How?

- In that. Through there.

- The binary chute?

But you'd never survive

the pressure. It'll destroy...

In that I can.

Zip-zap and I'm gone.

But you'd never

leave us, Zaltar.

- You'd never leave Argo City.

- Indeed, I might, Kara.

Too much of a good thing here.

Perhaps I'll try Saturn instead.

Yes, I think I might.

Saturn that

further away than Earth?

Silly question.

Didn't you study six-dimensional

geometry at school?

Do they not teach

anything anymore?

Well, of course they do.

I know the equations.

I just can't see

them in my head.

Most great artists find

mathematics troublesome, Kara.

- Only use your imagination.

- Mm-hm.

Saturn and Earth

are in outer space

but we, we are in inner space.

Our city has two great

power sources.

This is one of them. Look.

An omegahedron.

The Guardians let you have it?

Not exactly. I borrowed it.

You stole it. Oh, Zaltar,

they're gonna...

No, borrowed it...

for the afternoon.

- For inspiration.

- Inspiration.

But I think that

I shall never see

the branches

of a living tree.

Why? An omegahedron

can create life, can't it?

It can't, child, it can't.

Just the illusion of life.

That's a fancy shadow

of the real thing

which is the most we can hope

for on this lonely old rock.


Kara, I've been looking

for you for ages.

Oh, I'm sorry, mother.

- Zaltar.

- Alura, join us.

We're just inventing


Put your fingers here,

Kara, and press hard.

Good. Now try it.

Let your imagination explode

and give it a try. Go on.

Zaltar, my-my husband

tells me you talk

of leaving Argo City.

For where?

Parts unknown.

It is, alas, a fact.

You and Zor-El

have a life here.

You've each other and Kara.

But, Zaltar, you founded

this city. It's yours.

As far as the eye can see,

right to the veil, smack

and then what?

What is beyond?

Alura, I cannot contain

myself to Argo City only.

My head is boiling with ideas.

My imagination is too vast,

it's uncontrollable.

If you want my opinion, Zaltar,

you're starting to repeat

yourself here with

all this airy, glittery stuff.

Exactly. That's why

I'm going to Venus.

Venus? When?

Tomorrow or the next day,

at the latest.

Zaltar, have you

thought about this?

It doesn't make sense to me.

I have thought intensely.

My mind is made up.

Kara! The power source!

Oh, Zaltar!

Save me. Please! Help!

- No!

- Kara!


Help! No!

You took the omegahedron.

That's not correct,

I lost the omegahedron.

- No, father, I did...

- Shh, Kara.

No matter who.

Without it this city can't

survive more than a few days.

Our lights will grow dim and

the very air we breathe so thin.

I know. So I shall find it.

I shall go right to the end of

inner space and I'll return it.

Impossible. How? No one can

leave Argo City and you know it.

This is our universe and

you've destroyed it with a game.

- A childish game.

- I think it can be done.

Through there, the binary chute,

in the traveler.

Like a coward you choose

instant destruction

while the rest of us

are doomed to stay here...
