Test Pilota Pirxa


Connect the artificial kidney.

Connect the drips.

Switch the heart to the natural power supply

You'll take him while in hibernation,

That's the best way to do it.

Nortronix inteltronists would do anything

to get the contract.

Good. I'd feel uncomfortable travelling with him being... alive.

He's just like me and you in every way.

Well, almost every way.

Besides you'll have to get used to him eventually.

- Good luck!

- Thank you.

On the basis of a short story by STANISAW LEM




Screenplay and dialogue based on a short story entitled "Rozprawa"



Executive producers



So, The initial elimination left us with two candidates

Commander Kent, whom we saw yesterday,

and Commander Pirx.

Both are exquisite pilots

And both theoretically, at least for the time being,

are available to us.

Talking about Pirx...

We know him as a man of total honesty.

Let me remind you of the Vega rescue operation...

...during which he discovered a sequence of errors in one of the lines.

Well gentlemen, as a human being he has got some weaknesses.

But, returning to Kent...

he is a really strong man...

...and trusted by United Atomic Laboratories

Yes, and that's why we're supporting Kent as the candidate.

His positive report

would be enough for the UN Commission and UNESCO

And then we can go ahead with the mass production

which is the main purpose of our experiment.

The involvement of someone like Pirx in our programme...

It's sort of... risky...

...a gamble

Personally, as the representative of Cybertronics, I think that...

...a pilot with such a reputation for honesty, like Pirx,...

...it doesn't matter if he'll do it consciously or not

If he's going to be on our side, we'll have the best argument

for the media and the public.

And what if Pirx's report is negative?

We all know, and we can speak openly...

...that some of our products have got faults.

It could end in a disaster...

... of unimaginable magnitude.

Because we have some disagreement

I suggest that we take a vote

Who would like to see Commander Pirx involved in our programme?

On behalf of United Atomic Laboratories, I strongly disagree

The result was positive

Now it's up to you, Director...

...to have Commander Pirx agree to his involvement in our...

...I can say it without hesitation...

it is OUR programme.

That was slower than when we were on the moon.

But at least we didn't have the spacesuits on.

Let's hurry - the weather's changing.

Apparently sometimes on mountaintops, even at noon,

you can see the stars.

We'll see for ourselves tomorrow.

The way you're talking, you'd have thought

you'd never seen them before.

We'll be able to watch them from the earth for the whole month.

They look better from the earth.

Commander, an urgent message for you.

I must return immediately.

But you're on vacation.

It's an order

That's a pity - we could have had a nice month.

- Here we are.

- Thank you.

- Commander Pirx?

- Yes, that's me

We've been waiting for you. Please take a seat.

I'm busy now, and not available to anyone.


I have an original proposition - even an experiment.

What I'm about to say

must be held in the strictest confidence...

...even if you refuse

Do you agree?

Not unless you tell me more.

I understand, you aren't the kind of man

to walk into something blind.

I would have expected that,

based on what I've already heard about you..

...but that's even better.

I'm talking about an experimental flight

A new type of spaceship?

No, a new type of crew.
