Space (2020) - full transcript

In the year 2050, Dr. Ada Gray and her fellow astronauts aboard The Udo fight for survival after an accident leaves them stranded in deep space.

Welcome back,

we are live from The
Udo, approaching Mars.

Happy New Year all
you lovely earthlings.

Ada Gray here, Science
Officer of The Udo.

I've got some questions I'm
gonna answer about astronauts.

So let's dive in.

Hell of a hat,
John fucking Wayne.

Hi ho Silver.

That's the Lone Ranger.

John Wayne is not
the Lone Ranger?

Give me a hand here.


I hate Tang.

Mitch loves it.

You're not gonna be
going all hot and heavy

on that French the
whole time, are ya?

Shut up, Mitch.

So is it Mitchell or Mitch?

Mitch The Bitch.

I will not be
calling you that.

We got fruit juices,
coffee, Durand loves coffee,

and tea, that's me.

Next question.

Okay, so, long term goals.

Brightstar is committed to
large scale terraforming

over the next 50 years.

And Ceres is the first
step in that goal.

Next question.

Brightstar is a
private organization.

There is no military
or government backing

at all.

This morale things are shit.

But it isn't,
that's the point.

Yeah, can't say
I'm gonna miss it.

Per fucking usual.

How long have you
worked together?

Yeah, what is it
Ada, is this 12 missions?

13, and you're still a bitch.

Mm, Ada, God, she
is such a treat.

Better than a colonoscopy.

Yeah, barely.

Did not know
Americans still smoke.

Today's all about
the vices my friend.

Yeah, before
that recycled air.

Chop, chop team.

Double time!

Speak of the devil.

So, how do you know French?

I know a lot of things.

That's my weapon.


My brain.

Did not know it was a fight.

Sometimes a skirmish,
sometimes a total fucking war,

but yeah, a fight.

Word on the street is
you're a damn good pilot.

Pretty good.


Skin's a different color.

All right, you guys are getting
down to the nitty gritty.

So, yeah, we are in an EVA 10
to 12 hours outside the craft.

So yeah, it's a necessity.

The artificial gravity makes
the physics a little bit easier

inside The Udo.

And then,

well, we drink it.


Okay, so water works a
bit differently in space.

It's like a gooey substance.

It sticks to your skin.

So, if you were to
break down in tears

your eyes would just
swell up with water

instead of dropping off.

I left the ring
with Zara, my wife.


That's a pretty name.

Every mission
I leave the ring.

It means more to her, I think.

Ceres is the largest
of the dwarf planets.

It lies between
Mars and Jupiter.

And since it's a
little closer to Mars

in makes interstellar
travel pretty easy.

Though Vesta was good runner up.

There is more water on Ceres

than there's fresh
water on Earth.

With our seeding the
air will be breathable

in about two years.

I haven't heard anything
about the Fung Wong team,

but regardless, Ceres is
big enough for both of us.


Yeah, good old Earth.

Pretty good template.


Not for long,
there's our new digs.

Why are they
called Joshua Trees?

Seem to be doing
a lot of talking

to that French fly boy.

You guys are gonna get along
like a bunch of roosters.

Name was given
by the Mormons, the trees

reminded them of Joshua,

reaching his hands
up towards heaven.

So what do you think of us?

What do you mean?

Us, the crew, the dynamic.

It's gonna be
perfect Commander.

There are in fact,
each of us gets

what's called a CRV.

A return vehicle.

They're effective about
330 kilometers above Earth.

Given we're going 330
million kilometers,

yeah, they're pretty
much dead weight.

Then there's Mitch.

Brightstar wants Mitch.

They always want Mitch.

You let me worry about Mitch.

Mitch, everybody, grab hands,

we're gonna do
this retreat right.

That's so pussy.


Control that
is a beautiful sight.

Copy Tomcat,
ring in the New Year.

Ring a ding ding.

Adco 70% down bubble,

aft shift check, Red Book One.

Okay, we
are in Red Book One.

Copy that, Phil,
how's that martian weather?

Wouldn't go out
without sunblock.

Tomcat, how long
'til the thrusters?

Hour and 10, sir.

Copy that, please go get Evan.

Will do.

We're an hour out.

Hey Zara.


All right, we're
officially in Red Book One.

Thrust happens at 1320,
that'll put us in the corridor.

Evan I'm gonna need a
rundown on your rates.

Yes, sir.

How's Zara, give
her a kiss for me?

You should be lucky.

How's the
debris field looking?

Some dusting,
we can handle it.



Gonna need
your stamp on this.

Already done, sir.

Good, what's the time?

12:12, sir.


Yes, 12:12.

12:12 and what?

30 seconds.



And the seconds?

28, sir.

Mitch, what the fuck?


Well done.

All right, all right,
everyone settle down.

This one's by the books,
every step there's gonna be

a quick burst of plasma
energy from the VASIMR engine.

Don't fuck with that, I'm a
need you to be on your toes.

You do this right, we'll
see Ceres in a month.


Sounds good.

Control, Udo is
1270 nautical miles

out of Jakarta, preparing
to shift course.

Udo you're a go
for course correct.

Copy that.

Velocity is at 6,000,
Phil, 120 feet per seconds.

Flight, go for
forward thrusters.

Countdown to
thrusters on my mark.

Five, four, three,
two, one, mark.

Delete Auto RCS, jet select,
mains A and B, pick us up

in the procedure
for existing PTC,

that's in your CSM checklist.

We're in the lane.

Velocity decrease now
at 3,230 feet per second.


Nice work, Flight.

Ada, champagne is on me.

the Joshua Tree Song,

- What?

takes me back there.

'Sides it kind of
reminds me of Dylan.


Bob Dylan.

I don't know what
you're talking about.

Bob Dylan was one of the
most influential songwriters

in folk, and country, rock.

'60s, '70s, '80s, and beyond.

All right, that
was before my time.

Ever hear of the Beatles?

Of course I've
heard of the Beatles.

Well they were before
your time too weren't they?

Okay, stop ragging on me.

Saw Bob Dylan's farewell tour.

Right before he died,
amazing, man, poetic genius.

I can respect genius.

You know what?

You got a lot to learn.

And I'm just the
guy to teach you.

Someday I'm gonna play
you my vinyl collection.

Than you'll see what
you've been missing.

I'd like that Tomcat.

How are you playing this?

Right here, next to my heart.

Original nanite, first
gen, single cell.

Still got all my old mixes.

All right, you got me.

This shit is beautiful.

Old shit is beautiful.

Hey are you ready for your
little educational tutorial

you're doing there?

Before the blackout?


I know what I'm gonna say.

You on the vid-com?

Yep, I'm up, gonna
talk to my grandkid.

Her name's Emily.

She's actually a lot like you.

Poor girl, she's into
planets and plants too, huh?

Yeah, kind of, takes
after her mom and

my wife.

Oh wow, how long
have you been married?

40 years.


When are your
wedding bells little girl?

Hell no, marriage is
a superstition like God.

Okay, I guess it's
not for everybody.


what's your wife's name?

Emily, that's her name
and my granddaughter's name,

kind of a family name.

Well, give the Emilys my best.

I'll do that.

Hey you think it's gonna
be hard, the blackout?

No, we did
it in the simulator

and the moon's far side.

Yeah that was two days though,
we're talking months now.

I don't got
anyone to talk to.

You can
talk to me Ada.

I'll get that.

Oh thanks.

So, what's Pennsylvania like?

Oh, you never been?

Oh hell no, the
closest I've been is DC.

Why'd you
say it like that?

Like what?

Like you just
threw up in your mouth.

No I didn't.

I'm just playing.

Don't fuck with me.

So, it's just like
farms and stuff?

Yeah, basically.

Actually grew up
next to Gettysburg.

Mm, so you saw the old graves.

Oh yeah.

I saw the ghosts too.


Not into parapsychology?

That's not a thing.

Oh really.

Astrobiology, some people
would say that's bullshit,

looking at far off places

and then just guessing
what's out there.

But that's different.

How is that different?

Totally different.

Spook hunters are junk science.

I'm about evidence.

Oh, right.

What about little green men?

Evidence, Tomcat, evidence.

I like you, but you are
a bitch of a nut to crack.

Why thank you.

You like the challenge.

I got to take more things
on faith from now on.

My wife just died, you see.

Oh, Tomcat,

I'm so sorry.

Well, thank you,
it's okay, believe me,

we knew for a long time, and

I wanted to stay.

But me going was her wish.

She knew how important this was.

But at least we got
to see each other off.


Yeah, what I saw, the
ghosts, the soldiers,

and their faces,

it was probably just a
silly kid's imagination,

but, you gotta admit
hurtling through the black

in a ship the shape of a coffin,

hard not to feel
a kinship somehow.

Lola, Lola, oh.


My baby.


Gonna use the cell prototype

for the presentation tomorrow.

Do not let Mitch step on you.


You know me.

How's Zara?

You know Tomcat was
married for 40 years?

Just know,

100% I couldn't do that.

Am I good?

Yeah, okay,
we're live, come on.


Hey, so, I'm Mitch Poe.

I am the Payload Commander
here aboard The Udo.

Now what that means is I'm in
charge of all of the equipment

we're gonna need on
the Ceres project

and getting it there safely.

So right now my
colleague, Dr. Gray and I

are gonna take you on a little
tour of the Ceres project.

I got a
sample of the cell.

No, no, first I would love to

just talk about
the infrastructure.

Oh yes, I am going
to tell you all about

the very radical
infrastructure we have onboard

in great detail.

Hey papa.

I'm wearing the dress.

You look pretty as
a picture postcard.

Is your mommy around?

She's talking to the preacher.

They got grammy in
the coffin up front.

Yeah, I know, don't be scared.

Okay, she's still
grammy, always will be.

Hey, hey, come on now, I
need you to be strong for me.

Okay kiddo?




All right, these
pipes you see running up

behind me right here, they
each contain a membrane.

And each one of
those membranes has

a self-heating carbon
nano tube, and they run

the entire length of the
ship, both inside and out.

Now where we're landing, that
is called the Occator Crater.

It's 90 kilometers,
which is, Ada?

Too slow, 56 miles wide.

And she's the math one too.

It's the brightest spot.

It is bright
because it is made out of

hydrated magnesium sulfate.


So what that translates
to is it's the same stuff

that makes up like Epson salt.

And these nano tubes
they are going to extract

a livable amount of
water from that salt

within the Occator Crater.

Water is just one half of the
equation, for the other half

we have here, hold the camera.

Oh, you are gonna
love this, we call it

the cell, okay.

Oh, you grabbed it 'cause
you wanna talk about it,

or should I?

The first time I saw a dead
body I was about your age.

It's just what happens.

But you are way
stronger than I was.


Yeah, really.

And some day you're gonna
be plowing a Ceresian field.

I'm gonna be kicking back

with a big stogie
and a fine scotch.

Okay, each of these
that we call cells

contain millions of nanites,

and they're each fitted
with an AI processor.

That's Artificial


These little guys are gonna be
the key to converting the air

and raising the temperature.

That's right.

Okay, great, well, it
looks like we're about to

go outta range of our last
satellite pretty soon.

Guess we're headed into
a 14 month blackout.

Gonna be a heck of a year.

So, Ada get in here.

From everyone here, from
the whole crew of The Udo.

Ah, we wish you.

Hey, you're up.

Do you hear that?


I think it's
effecting the grav pull.

What are you talking about?

There, it's like
this low moan.

I don't hear anything.

Check this out.

There's a discrepancy

in the gravitational
pull of the payload.

I mean that's so minor
that's barely even a blip.

There shouldn't be any
discrepancy, how did you miss that?

Okay, come on.

Control has
been pouring over

these calculations for years.

Look, okay, it's
probably just a bump

in the artificial grav
from after the last burn.

We need another.

Okay, I think
that's overreacting.

Torque could rip the
casing loose, Mitch.

Oh my God, it's just a blip!

isn't responding,

I'll have to report this
to Phil in the morning.

Okay, wait.

What are we talking
about here, huh?

What are we really
talking about?

Back the fuck off.

Come on.

Want a little something.


A little something
for the birthday boy.


Think for a second,
that'd be what?

10, 15 seconds tops?

I thought
you were good at math.

Followed by two
years and 36 days

of inefficient passive
aggressive power plays.

It would be
subterfuge all around.

You'll say dumb ass things,
and I won't listen to

a single order you give.

The psychological dynamic
of the crew, the mission,

it would be fucked.

Might even 'cause micro-perturbation
in your sleep cycle.

Which could cause a serious
accident down the line.

You might even be killed.

All because you just
didn't rub one out.

Are you threatening me?



Guess everyone's
fucked tonight.


Goodnight kiddo.

Mitch The Bitch.

Knew this would happen,

soon as we go dark you and
Mitch start butting heads.

I was just looking over data.

Same thing
happened in the simulator

and the lunar test.
You get scared.


It's different for
me, start missing Zara,

turn into a goddam love dove.

You know you
can control that right?

Oh, how so?




just chemical
processes in the brain

based on the firing of
neurons connected to smells.



It can all be controlled.

I cannot compartmentalize.

You just don't want to.

No, I do not.

This ship, the
mission, outer space,

it is not all for me,
like it is for you.

Yeah, you made that clear.

This is all just
an experiment, hey?

You push the abort button on
anything that gets in the way.

So single minded.



I wanted your child.

Good idea Ada.

So what do we do?

I don't wanna risk anything
just because some of us

don't want to do the math.

And I would love
it marked down

that none of this is necessary.

Totally fair Mitch.

Whether it's something
Ada, or nothing Mitch,

we're gonna do a
short RCS at 0800,

that'll relive the torque,

are you willing to
stand by that doctor?

Yes, sir.

It's slide rule
time boys and girls.

Mains A and B, Vector five.

Copy, attitude adjusted,
feeding velocity now.

Earl Grey for Dr. Gray.

you got one for me?

coffee, black


Like Satan's soul.

Flight go for forward thrust.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Stand by Flight.

What the hell is that?

What's wrong?

Are you seeing this?

Flight we're
reading an anomaly in space.


Copy, Command can you specify?

Copy that Flight, roll
your tracks to 56.69er

tell me what you see.

Holy shit.


Is that?

Stand by Command, let
me run a diagnostic.

Copy that Flight.

Please let me know if
that's what I think it is.


who here speaks Mandarin?

- Shit.
- No, it's impossible.

Oh, you got to be kidding.

How come Control
didn't know about this?

The readings,
they are not lying.

- Right down to
- The report said

- the screws on the casing
- I am positive there is a ship out there.

Totally scrapped,
was that all bullshit?

All right!

Just calm down, all right?

Who cares how it
happened, it happened.

Boys and girls that
is the new normal.

So now that our cheese has
been moved get over it.

Evan, I'm gonna need you to
get with Mitch on this one,

we're gonna do a course
correct, bring The Udo

into short range communication.

No, sir.

How's that?

I'm still concerned
about this torque stress.

Oh, so now you're
fucking worried?

Oh now's not the time!

Plus I don't know
what kinda gravity

- that ship is pulling.
- So do the math, work the problem!

We don't have the fuel.

- We have the reserves.
- And I don't think we do have...

We're gonna
talk to the Chinese.

I think that's a bad idea.

Whether you like it or not
we're gonna be their neighbors,

so we'll start by offering
them the cup of sugar.

Who the hell has my gum?


You say something to me?

Okay, hey, could you
guys not talk in French

when I'm trying to
run the numbers, okay?

I don't know if you're talking
to me, I don't understand

what you're saying, sorry.

Switch on.

And basically we are draining
about 75% from pod one

for the reserve.



So, what's Phil's
reasoning here?


He does not want any of the pods

to be completely without fuel.

Only draining about 33% from
this one, and all the coolant.

It doesn't really
matter though, does it?

Never know
what could happen.


Just the fuel sign, do not
worry, you can override it.

You son of a bitch, you
knew that was gonna happen.


All right, we are go for
course correct in 13 hours.


Course correct 0900.

Hell of a
time to be working.

Hey, you want one?

Yeah, what do you got?

I got marshmallow
and a brown one.

What's the brown one?

Shit flavored for all I know.

Yeah, I'll take
the marshmallow.



5,000, that's
the magic number.

What do you mean?

We've logged 5,000
hours Tomcat, you and me.

Come Monday I've flown
with you more than anyone.

No shit.


Hasn't gotten any easier.

Fuck you, Phil.

You know, I should be
sitting in that chair.

There's the Tomcat I know.

Cheers buddy.

Hey man, I'm
sorry about Emily.

Thank you.

We're a couple of old guys.

Hey, speak for yourself.

Younger than The Big Bang.

Well, that's
something I suppose.

Yet here we are.

The old douche bags, right?

And we're the pioneers, isn't
it supposed to be the kids?

It's bass ackwards.

Yeah, I'll tell ya
what's bass ackwards,

Brittany Spears
getting Medicare.

Like I said we're
Big Bang young.

Yeah, thank God for that, huh?

Thank fucking Christ.

And thank God for Emily.

The other
one, the other Emily?

Yeah, my grandkid.

She's great, she's
gonna be all right.

They're all gonna be all right

once we get Ceres
up and running.

You think they're
gonna be grateful?

Right, not a snowball's
chance in hell of that.

Cheers to that.

Hey, Phil,

you never had anybody
on the vid-com back home

just like last time.

There is no one back home.

You know that, Tom.

It's all out there
in front of me.

It's always been enough.

It's not all doom and gloom,
there's kiddos like Ada.

Yeah, the doctor is
something, she's like

a quantum computer.

Hey, don't worry,
that's a compliment.

So we a go?

We're a go, 0900.

Mitch will have all
the numbers up and ready

provided he's juiced up.

Hey, I'm gonna need
Evan's debris report?

Why don't you join Evan now.

On it, boss.


I have to apologize.

For what?

For what I just
said about you.


Called you
a quantum computer.

Thanks, I am.

Yeah, it was just
the tone I used.


I know what you're gonna say.

Sorry, I'm no good at this.

You're thinking we got a year

until Control will
be watching us.

You know your work so
far has been exemplary.

Really, your work in
general is genius,

you know that.

It's not the worst job
in the world, I like it.

You mean saving
the human race?

Something like that.

It's better than
what my mom did.

Oh yeah, what'd she do?


I know what you mean,

my old man skipped out
on us when we were 10.

Sir, you're not gonna

kiss me or something
like that are ya?

No, no of course not.

Thank you sir, you saved
me a lot of paperwork.

You're welcome.

Command, you are on course.

Time to communication
range, one minute.

Copy Flight.

Gray, I'm gonna need that
translation. I'm gonna need you

to read it out for me.

I have the
pronunciation right here.

Okay, hold.


Which means, this is
Brightstar, Udo Terraformation

calling in friendship.

Copy that.

Second phrase.

Which means, could we please
open a line of communication?

Last phrase.

Okay, that one
I know, thank you.

And just remember to
bow when you say it.


Okay, Evan, where are we at?

10 seconds.

Nine, eight.

Tomcat put us
on the frequency.

Six, five, four, three, two.


Yeah, go ahead Mitch.

Maybe it's unmanned.

You mean a satellite?

Yeah, maybe a rover.

Don't think so.

Why not?

Look at the size
of that thing.

That is a big son of a bitch.

And look, I see oxygen,
nitrogen tanks on the front hold.

No, whoever it is, there's
definitely somebody on there.

This is Commander
Phil King of The Udo.

The Brightstar
Terraformation Project,

Oh my God.

Please respond.

What the fuck is that?

It looks
like it is venting.

Phil, there's some kind of
gas emitting from that thing.

Flight, give us a
forward thrust, back us off.

Sir, what about the torque?

Yes, doctor,
I'm well aware.

He knows about
the goddamn torque?

This thing doesn't stop
on a dime, all right,

everyone just calm down.

Flight, where are
those calculations?

I need a sustained burn.


Give it a wide berth.


There is a lot of debris.

It looks like the whole
front is coming off there.

We need that thrust now.

Five, four, three, two, one.


Flight what's
the time on that?

30 more seconds.

What is that,
do you hear that?


What is that?

Helmets on, immediately,
possible hydrazine leak.

Everybody zip up!

Mitch, do see this?

Ten, nine.

In the debris.

Five, four.

- It's our nanites,
- Three, two.

- they got our nanites!
- One, shut down.

What the hell is going
on back there, Flight?

Torque! Sending
us into cavitation.

I knew it!

Goddammit, that's
a rupture warning.

No, that's not gonna happen.

Mitch, sit your ass
down back there.

You were right,
now put that on.

Ada, Ada sit down, Ada sit down!

Flight, I need
those stabilizers!

Stabilizer's on.

Gonna need a damage report
on that debris shower,

figure out what it was, everyone
strapped down back there?

Mitch is injured.


All right I'm coming back there.

Tom log all the
coordinates, lock us down.


And get your helmet
on I wanna know if we got

a hydrazine leak.

All right sir.


I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

- I'm sorry.
- Yeah me too.

First we got to
figure out what to do.

Evan I say we do a course
correct back into satellite range

and send a message to Control.

Impossible, not enough fuel.

So siphon more from the pods!

It gets worse.

You're saying you got this
reading from the other ship?

Yes sir, as soon
as the debris hit.

Familiar configuration,
isn't it?

You're kidding.

Like I said, those
are our nanites.

That doesn't
make any sense.

It's not just a similar
AI, it's exactly the same.

Okay, okay, so you think
that the Chinese stole it?

Yeah, yeah, fuck, shit,
I wouldn't be surprised.

I told you!

Brightstar's full
of fucking spies.

I told you the whole time!

Yeah, okay, now's not
the time to drag it up.

What is that?

I don't know.

Evan, how you doing
on the debris field?

Come on Flight, talk to me!

I don't
know, it's strange.

What was that?

Looks like
something to do with

the aft pressure valve.

I'm on it.

I got it, just
get the fuel from the pods.

My eyes!

Oh goddam.

Oh God, where's
that fucking com?

Fuck, where's that fucking com?

12, 12, 12, 12,


12, 12




Anybody can you hear me?

Anybody out there can
you hear me please?

12, 14, 14.




Mitch, anyone,
are you out there.

Who is it?


Who are you?

Are you Chinese?

Jesus Christ, Ada,
Ada, Ada, can you hear me?

Is that you?

Mitch, Mitch, Mitch!

Mitch, yeah, yeah,
you're coming in.

You okay?

Fuck no,
but I got into three.

Pod three?

Yeah, yeah,
what channel are we on?


Go to 12,
somebody might be wanting

to get in touch.

I tried that.

Yeah, well try it again!

Ada, Ada, can you see me?

Yeah, yeah you're patched in.

You see me?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I got
you, I got you, sort of,

you're freezing but.

Shit, going outta
range can you?


- anyone there?
- Yeah, copy,

I'm reading you, who is this?

It's Tom, Tomcat.


I can't.

Tomcat, you made
it, you're alive.

Where are you?

Tomcat listen to me I
think, I think maybe I can.


Shit! Fuck!

Fuck where is he, where?



Okay, okay.

Tomcat, Tomcat if
you can hear me

The Udo was on route
40 by 40 by 23.

Each pod launched at
30 degrees down bubble.

If you got thrust, Tomcat,
Tomcat use your thrust

to slow down and pitch,
pitch a complete 90.

90 degrees, 90
degrees to the left.

To the left,
Tomcat, to the left,

can you hear me, Tomcat?

Please respond!


Just turn left, it's just
90 degrees, turn left okay.

You'll bump right into me.

Come be my neighbor, Tomcat.

Hey neighbor,
borrow a cup of sugar?


Oh thank God.


Get me on the vid-com.
Take a bearing range.

I don't want us to bump.

Where am I going?

Where the fuck am I...

To the left, 90
degrees to the left.

Just a
left, are you sure?

90 degrees to the
fucking left, it's simple.

Gotcha, darling.


I'm gonna go to channel
14, I'm gonna get Mitch.

Oh don't
worry about Mitch.


Hey, beautiful.

I'm guessing 12 is the
official party line?

Mitch, what happened?

Mitch, Mitch are you there?


I think the range
is the problem,

I'm drifting away.

You're gonna be okay,
you're in three, right?

Was that right or left of me?

I don't know, I
don't fucking know.

Mitch come on.

Okay, what one are you in?


What, what, what?

I'm in one.


Jesus Christ.


Can you hear me, I'm close.


Got you on my monitor.

Better decelerate.

Thrusters use a lot of fuel,
I got to use them sparingly.

Mitch, do you have thrusters?

Oh, what the fuck
does it matter now?

Come on, Mitch!

Find your thrusters Mitch.

We're all fucking corpses now.




Mitch, do
you have thrusters?

I don't know!

Calm down, look
around, breath.

Find your
thrusters Mitch.

Ah fuck!


Tomcat we're losing him.

Yeah, I see that.

Mitch, get your
head in the game!

Mitch, Tomcat was on my
left, you were on Tomcat's left

that's a 90 degree turn.

Do a sustained burn
for twice as long.

40 seconds.

40 second burn Mitch.


Fucking help me!

- Mitch!
- help me!



Okay, we gotta keep calm,
if we don't we're dead.

Tomcat we're already dead.


We're dead either way.

Have you located Evan?

I don't know if
he even made it.


Oh God, Phil's gone.


He didn't even
make it to the pods.



Can we get a
reading on The Udo?

It's gone.

What do you mean?


How can it be gone?

Even if we could get a lock.

Tomcat I don't understand.

It wouldn't do any good.

Didn't you smell it?


Fucking hydrazine.




That's probably what got Phil.

Can we ventilate?

No, it was an explosion,
total saturation,

the panels are fried.

Okay, listen.

We're gonna do a
sound scan, right?

All frequencies, see if we
can locate Evan and Mitch.

How do you do that?

We'll just do a basic
ping but put it on a loop.

Little trick I used
to use in submarines.

See the tuning switch
right side of the com?

Got it.

All right flip it.

Okay, now we just listen.


Tomcat I got an idea.


Do you hear that?

What is that?

Where is that coming from?

I don't know, it's close.

This is Tomcat.

Happy to hear from you.

Ada, Tom.

Mitch is that you?

We had some
real fucking luck.

He came into my comm range.

Just followed the
pied piper here.

All right everybody
try your vid-coms.

Copy that.

Hey, hey, no tears,
no tears, this is space

your head will explode.

All right, so now
we all hang together

but we're still gonna hang.

Who is in number one?

Number one, who is in it?


Who has got it?



You used number one
for fuel didn't you?

Phil told us to.


All right, I say we take a
quick inventory, all of us.

- All right?
- Are you crazy?

Check our stats, yeah I know,
we have to cut the vid-coms.

We just got 'em back.

Tomcat is right, we need to
know exactly where we're at.

Water, fuel, power.

That's right, it
shouldn't take long,

we've barely used the pods.

Just the basics.

See you on the other side.

It's too fucking quiet, man.

You'll be all right, trust me.


What the hell was that?

What the fuck
happened to my pod?

What do you mean?

I got no fuel!

Me neither, Mitch.

You in three?

Three, pod three?


That was the other one.

What do you mean
the other one?

What the fuck did you
two do to this thing?

All right, calm down Mitch.


These guys are
fucking amateur hour.

I made the call, me
and Phil so we could

get close to that Chinese ship.

Oh yeah, look how that
worked out Tom, fuck you!

Fuck every one of you.

Are you through?

We all are Tom.

Ada's got an idea, right Ada?

Yes sir, I was
thinking about penguins.

The South Pole, the
only place in the world

that never gets warm,
but yet penguins

know how to live there.

So we're penguins now?

And it's colder
than cold outside.

Okay, so what do
the penguins do?

Most complex
group therapy ever.

Oh, that's fucking funny.

It's fucking true.

They stand in a circle for
months sharing body heat.

It's much more than
that, like a symbiosis.

So what are you saying?

Still got the
cell, the prototype.


So, this little guy
has dozens and dozens

of nanites in it.

You're talking
an umbilical cord.

The nanites can make one.


They can use the antennas,
every pod's got one.

Yeah, that'll
take at least a day.

We were willing to wait years!

That's different.


It wasn't life and death.

You kidding?

That was the mission.

Oh, don't give me that shit.

You're just like the suits.

Stop pretending we
didn't fuck the Earth.

All right!

They work!

Stop being a bitch, Mitch.

Those Chinese
nanites fucked us.

Shut up!

I'm with Ada.

There's a surprise.

I could use my single
cell, link directly to you.

Mitch, I'm closer.

Turn those damn things off.

Hey, you think we should
be worried about any of 'em?

Yeah, all of them.

All right everybody,
stir your tanks.

Thanks for that.

Don't worry.

This is gonna work.

Suppose it does,
what do we do?

Been thinking about
that, I say we keep going.

You're crazy.

Not to Ceres obviously,
we'll never get there,

and obviously it is
too far to get home.

Thinking about the planetoids?

We are out past Mars now,
there are dozens of them,

the Trojans, maybe
the L-5 point.

That's a terrible,
terrible idea man.

I gotta go with Mitch on this
one, even if it is possible

to land without blowing up,

we'll be trapped.

We lost all terraforming cells.

You've got that prototype.

One cell, that's impossible.

You said there are
dozens of nanites in there.

But after we use
them to link the pods

I don't think this
can do much more.

I cannot die in space Ada.

I promised Zara.

She won't even know anyway.

I will!

She knew the risks.

Zip it up.

Just the atmosphere
Ada, that is all we need.

A little bit of H2O, a
little bit of carbon.

Just a pinch of creation.

I'm with Evan guys,
we gotta try it.

Tomcat, it's a pipe dream.

Even if we were to get
down there there won't be

any fuel left to leave.

You're the one
that gave us all

that helpful little
reminder of our mission.

Well, I still believe in it.

Also prefer not to
die in this void.

Although I don't really
mind it much anymore.

If nothing else I wanna know
there's hope for my grandkid.

Oh God, I wish we were still

knocking back beers
at Joshua Tree.

Yeah, me too,
but shut up Mitch,

it'll work.

You know if it
doesn't these pods

are gonna be our coffins.

Yeah, well at least
we'll be on the ground.

Damn, that's the fuel.

Now or never!

Flight give us a count.

Course correction,
10, nine, eight, seven.

Hope they work.

Six, five, four, three,

two, one, release!


Ada are you talking to them?

On it.

Let's hope the gravitational
pull doesn't fuck us again.

You hear that?

That's the nanites locking on,

Tomcat I'm starting with you.

Gonna nudge a little closer.

Okay, hold her steady,
going for umbilical now.

Awe shit, Tomcat's
breaking out the guitar.

Good thing there's not
much room on the ship.

Hey, fuck you Phil, all right?

I'm playing my damn
guitar, deal with it.

This is my wife's
favorite song by the way.

♪ Beautiful dreamer ♪

♪ Wake unto me ♪

♪ Starlight and dewdrops ♪

♪ Are waiting for thee ♪

♪ Sounds of the rude world ♪

♪ Heard through the day ♪

Checking on the dogs.

Hey, hey don't nuke mine.

Hey, you're gonna
put it in your mouth

and you're gonna like it.

That's an order,
you hear me Mitch?

Mitch The Bitch.


Where's my beer?

Get your own.

Oh, Commander, all chivalry.

Damn I love this.

Just the looking, you know?

God, they keep us so
bottled up in Dallas.

Same in Jakarta.

Just love to sit and look.

When I was a kid

I was


seminary school,

said that I wanted
to go into space.

Same day I said I
didn't believe in God.

It's ironic, huh?

Nah, that's not irony.

So, what's irony?

Something used
in Greek tragedy.

So what am I talking about?

I don't know.

You're blabbering.

So is this why you
became an astronaut

just to stick it to God?

What about you?


Did you know

that planet means wanderer?


Now there's some
Greek for you.

I like the wandering.

Hey, I wanna try that.

How do I look?


Don't let
her push you around.

That's an order.

Really is something.

Love to look up and...

Yeah, yeah, space is amazing.

You do not think so?

I mean, I do, I just,

it's now starting to
sound like a pick up line.

Oh, are you and the Commander?

No, no.

I mean, maybe he wanted it
but, he's an old man, I'm not.

A man? Happy to hear it.

Ada, would you like to
go for a walk with me?


To look at the stars.

I've seen them many times.

With engineers, biologists,

all the ologists.

But have you ever
really looked at them

with your own eyes?


No, I'm not
scared of anything.

Especially a Frenchman.


They're doing it, they're
building the umbilical!

Thank you God.

All right Evan, I'm
patching onto your nanite now.

Hope it's more
than a song shuffle.

Me too.

Okay, you're on the grid
Evan, you too Mitch.

Connection looks strong.

Where's your fuel gauge at?

I'm out.

All or nothing.

What am I gonna see on my end?

An icon is gonna pop
up on your monitor.

You too Mitch.

All right, I see it.

I don't.

So what do I do?

Click on it, Orange Book One.

Patch them into your basics.

Where's the icon?

Got you.


Hey, where's the icon?

am in.

Should be there, Orange
Book One, Mitch, come on!

Gonna start with the fuel.

Where's the fucking icon?

I don't have the fucking, I
don't, oh no, no, no, okay.

No, I got it, I got
it, okay, yeah, I'm in.


And electric.

Mitch, how's
your fuel looking?



- Oh fuck.
- I'm not getting anything.

Yeah, it's working.


Oh holy fuck it's working.

Ada, Tom!

It's working Evan,
everything should be working.

Ada can you hear me, Ada?

Tanks are stirring,

Ada is that you?

Fuel has
gotta be going somewhere.


Ada is that you?

Ada, Ada you are
going to be all right.

Oh fuck.

Oh fuck, Christ.

Oh fuck, Christ Jesus.

Calm, calm baby,
breath, breath.

Do you see your fuel gauge?

You did it.

We did it.

You nailed it Ada.

Yeah, fuck!

- Fucking fantastic.
- We can do it.

You seeing this Mitch?

Nice job Ada.

Mitch you reading this?

We can get down to
the Trojan planetoid.


Yes, yeah, Evan.

- This'll work.
- Nice.

It'll work.

Thank Chri...!

Four kilometers down bubble.


Everyone rigged
on their hoses?

Yeah, that's a copy.


Copy, Ada, you're going to...

Remember, five days,
that's all we got

after that it doesn't matter,
everything will be recycled

out of our bodies, drink
as much as you want

it'll only be wet.

Copy that.

The terraforming on the
L-5 Trojan is gonna take

at least a week, so it's
gonna be real fucking close.

Are we go for course correct?

That is a go.

It's terra firma time, people.

10, nine, eight, seven.

Hold Flight.


You seeing this?

No, no that cannot be.

Is that?

Oh shit, it's Phil.

That can't be.

What the fuck are
you talking about, Tom?

It's the fucking distress line.

He never made it off The Udo.

Plain as day.

He never made it.

Well then how do
you explain the call?

I can't explain the call.

Oh, so you can't
explain the call, Tom?

No, I can't explain
the goddam call.

Is there some kind
of auto separation?

What do you mean?

Is there preset program?


You sure?

No way in hell.

Why not?

Safety, somebody
has to be in the pod

for it to launch.

So there's definitely
somebody in there.

- But I saw him.
- Can we

- establish communication?
- You saw him.

No, no fuel is
thin enough as it is.

This jury rig has only
got so many burns in it.


Come on, Mitch, Evan is right.

No, nope, not this time, look,

the fucking pod's accelerating.

Holy shit.

Phil's in there Tom.

Lieutenant, it's
coming into comm range.

Lieutenant McMahon to
pod five, do you read me?

Pod five come in,
Phil, it's Tom.

It's Tomcat, come in pod five.




Oh fuck, do you hear that?

Help me.

Whoa, fuck, fucking.

Turn it off, turn it off.

Fucking help me.

Turn it off!

Flight check in, Mitch, Ada!

Tomcat, Tomcat
you there, Evan?

I'm hearing you.

- Ada to Flight.
- Mitch are you there?

Are you there?

That's a copy.


A monster.

All right, all right,
stay focused people.

Evan, I'm gonna need
burn right about now,

get wide of that damn thing.

I didn't know
nanites could do that.

Me neither but.

But what?

Text based on tardigrades,

only thing that
can live in space.


So, I'm saying that
nanites are tough.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, tough,
tiny little bastards.

That's what we wanted.

Why did the Chinese
weaponize them?

They did it to fuck us, man!

Oh, come on.

Well, what do
you call that shit?

Maybe it was an
experiment gone wrong.

Yeah well, you think the
tribes stayed on Earth?

What the fuck are you
talking about, tribes?

I had not idea
that they would do...

Think isn't about tribes.

It never was about tribes.

Okay, focus everyone,
let's concentrate

on getting down to the rock.


Oh fuck, what the hell is that?

Course correct,
10, nine, eight,

Brace positions.

seven, six, five, four,

three, two.

Oh fuck, you
fucking hear that?

One, firing!


10 more seconds.

10, nine, eight, seven,

six, five,

Shit, my heat
shield is cracking!

Four, three, two,
one, shut down.

Oh, Jesus.

We are right in the window,
should be a soft landing,

it is like a powder down there.

Thank Christ, I don't
know how much more

old Emily here can take.


Yeah, like my wife, she
was a tough old bird too.

Mitch what is it?

- Do you hear that?
- Mitch!

There's something
on the hull man.



My pod, Emily, she's
losing structural integrity.


It's gonna be okay,
it's gonna be okay.


Tomcat we can do something.

Hey, I'm dead weight
kiddo, I'm gonna give you

all the fuel I got.


Me and Emily,

it's not so bad.

My God!

Cut his audio.

Don't worry Mitch, I'm here.

And we're gonna
take a little trip.

Umbilical separated,
they are drifting.

No Tomcat.

- You take care kiddo.
- Don't leave me!

Listen to some Dylan.

I need you Tomcat,

- don't leave me here.
- remember, have faith.

Tomcat, don't go!

Brace for impact.

Approaching Vesta.



Oh God.

Evan this is Ada,
do you read me?

Ada, Ada I am here.

Oh, thank God.

My power is fried, I cannot
get any readings at all.

Do you have any
hull integrity?


Oxygen and the nitrogen

Oh my God.

are holding steady.

I'm not getting
any readings either,

but I'm gonna launch
the nanites anyway.


What is it?

The casing's cracked.

Goddammit, goddammit.

You know what?

Don't worry, it's gonna be okay.

I'm gonna seed it anyway.

Christ, there is no
way to know if it worked.

10 days.

That's all we need.

I'm running the cycle now.


Whatever you say.

It'll work.

- I hope so.
- It'll work.

'Cause my legs are broken.

Both of them?

If I do not make it
please do not waste time

trying to find me.

Don't say that Evan.

Don't say that shit Evan
it will work, it will work.

Evan, 10 days

and we're gonna be in paradise.

Not as fast as they preach,

but, this one requires
a lot less faith,

I promise you.

10 days.

01:22:02,733 --> 01:22:03,501

I used to hate Tang, but I'd
take that over piss right now.

Some joke, huh?

Better than most.

He speaks.

Speak again Bright...


Very cultured.


Romeo and Juliet.

Bet they could sympathize
with us right about now.

I didn't take you for
knowing Shakespeare.

He sounds even
better in French.

So what do you take me for,
you just pity me or something?

What are you talking about?

You just like
mocking me I think.

Where is this coming from?

Through the
simulation and training,

every goddam day
there was that tone.

You're getting punchy.

That woman's tone.

Shut up.

And drink up, you're dehydrated.

Like my wife.

I'm nothing like her.

That's it.

Next dinner bell...

Day five.



Today is day four.


No, I'm positive.


day four, I have been counting.

Me too, three!

Oh, to hell with it.

There is no way to know,
goddammit, goddamn this place.

Evan, I'm positive.

Everything is smashed.

It's day four!

Three, three, three

- three, three!
- Four!

Three, it's three!

I know it's three, I've
been counting, it's three.

I was gonna get a divorce,

I should have.

I should have told you.

I love...

I love you.

I'm sorry,

I'm so sorry.

So you care now do you?

But not enough, never enough!

You just wanted to
get into space, huh?

Evan, please.

Damn the consequences.

I'm sorry.

I want outta here!

There is no way out of here.

Fuck you, 10 days,

I'm outta here.

It has only been one day Ada.



No, don't fuck with me Evan.

Don't fuck with me, I know.

You believe?

Yes, yes.

Faith... from you?

You knew what was inside you,

what we made, and you
took the pills anyway.




Just a chemical process.

One life is nothing
but making a new world

that is a metal on your
chest, your name in stone.

I mean why be a mother
when you can be THE mother?

That night at Joshua Tree

we made love.

And then you aborted our child!

That isn't what happened.

I miscarried.

I miscarried.

I miscarried.

I wanted your child.
