Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968): Season 1, Episode 6 - The Sky Is Falling - full transcript

A U. F. O. has been spotted flying around the United States, terrifying people and violating every airspace regulation in the book. It falls into the sea, which, after another ship is destroyed investigating it, the Seaview is ordered to check it out.

WHAT'S THE POSITION NOW?

[Man] IT'S OVER SEATTLE, SIR.

INTERCEPTOR MISSILES, ALERT.

IT'S OVER SAN FRANCISCO, SIR.

IT'S OVER LOS ANGELES, SIR.

IT'S HEADING SOUTH
FROM SAN PEDRO, SIR.

WE'RE GETTING A
FIX ON IT NOW, SIR.

THERE IT IS, SIR! ON
TARGET. READY ON TARGET.



INTERCEPTOR MISSILES, STAND BY.

I WOULDN'T WAIT
TOO LONG, GENERAL.

I'D FEEL A LOT BETTER
ABOUT THIS, TOBIN, IF

I KNEW WHAT IT WAS
AND WHERE IT CAME FROM.

WELL, WE KNOW THAT IT'S PENETRATED
OUR RADAR SCREEN, IGNORED OUR SIGNALS,

VIOLATED JUST ABOUT EVERY INTERNATIONAL
SECURITY REGULATION IN THE BOOK.

ISN'T THAT ENOUGH?

[Man] SHE'S TURNING OUT TO SEA,
SIR. SHE SEEMS TO BE LOSING ALTITUDE.

MISSILE NUMBER ONE,
START FINAL COUNTDOWN.

DON'T LOOK SO GUILTY, GENERAL.

FROM THE ALEUTIANS ALL THE
WAY DOWN TO LOS ANGELES,

THIS THING'S GOT PEOPLE HIDING
UNDER THEIR BEDS SCREAMING FOR HELP.

- IF WE DON'T STOP IT NOW...
- [Man] THERE SHE GOES!

[Man #2] SIX, FIVE,
FOUR, THREE...



STOP THE COUNTDOWN!
HOLD YOUR FIRE!

[Man] VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

STARRING RICHARD BASEHART,

DAVID HEDISON.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

ADMIRAL, WE'RE JUST
COMING UP ON THE LIGHTSHIP.

FINE. AS SOON AS WE CLEAR THE STRAITS,
WE'LL START TAKING SAMPLES OF SEAWATER.

A MESSAGE, ADMIRAL.

WE'VE JUST BEEN HANDED
A NEW ASSIGNMENT.

PLOT A COURSE TO THIS
POSITION IMMEDIATELY.

WHAT'S IT MEAN? I DON'T KNOW,
EXCEPT FOR THE TIME BEING,

WE'RE BACK IN THE NAVY!

STEER COURSE 2-7-0.
ALL AHEAD FLANK.

COURSE 2-7-0. ALL AHEAD FLANK.

ADMIRAL, WE'RE AT THE EXACT
LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE YOU ORDERED.

WHAT HAPPENS NOW? WE'RE TO
RENDEZVOUS WITH SOMEONE HERE.

[Kowalski On Speaker]
CAPTAIN, THIS IS THE BRIDGE.

HELICOPTER APPROACHING
OFF THE STARBOARD QUARTER.

VERY WELL. HAVE A DETAIL ON DECK
TO RECEIVE TRANSFER OF PASSENGER.

[Kowalski] AYE, AYE, SIR.

A MESSAGE FROM THE
HELICOPTER, SIR. THANK YOU.

WELL, OUR PASSENGER IS
REAR ADMIRAL WALTER TOBIN.

YOU KNOW HIM? [Laughs]

"TRIGGER-HAPPY" TOBIN, THE
SCOURGE OF THE SEVEN SEAS?

YOU KNOW HIM.

[Tobin] THIS THING DROPPED
DOWN OUT OF THE ALEUTIANS.

MADE A HALF A DOZEN
PASSES ACROSS THE NATION...

AND SCARED THE DAYLIGHTS OUT OF
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CIVILIANS.

WE FINALLY GOT A FIX ON IT. BEFORE
WE WERE ABLE TO LAUNCH A MISSILE,

THE THING DROPPED OUT OF SIGHT INTO
THE SEA. THAT'S THE LAST YOU HEARD OF IT?

WE DISPATCHED THE
JEFFERSON AND THE MADISON

TO LOOK FOR IT, BUT THEY
NEVER GOT A SIGHTING.

HOWEVER, WE HAVE REASON TO
BELIEVE THAT THE MADISON GOT CLOSE.

WHY?

SHE REPORTED MAKING A
METAL CONTACT AT 3,500 FEET,

BUT SECONDS LATER, SHE WAS SWEPT
INTO SOME SORT OF AN UNDERSEA VORTEX.

HER LAST REPORT SAID
SHE WAS BREAKING UP AND

SHE WAS UNABLE TO
GET OUT OF THE CURRENT.

- LOST?
- YEAH, WELL, I'M AFRAID SO.

AND NOW WE'RE TO PICK UP
WHERE MADISON LEFT OFF. EXACTLY.

WE'RE HEADED FOR THE
MADISON'S LAST REPORTED POSITION.

NOW, WE'VE GOT THE
WHOLE 7th FLEET BEHIND US.

THEY'LL JOIN US AS SOON
AS THEY CAN GET HERE.

AND THE, UH...

THE SEAVIEW WILL
FUNCTION AS MY FLAGSHIP.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU
CAN TELL US ABOUT THIS, UH,

SAUCER OR WHATEVER IT IS?

WELL, THERE'S NOTHING
MUCH MORE TO TELL, EXCEPT

WE DON'T KNOW HOW
MANY MORE THERE MAY BE.

IT'S, UH...

IT'S OUR JOB TO GET
IT BEFORE IT GETS US.

SAC WILL POLICE THE SKIES, AND OUR
NUCLEAR FLEET WILL POLICE THE WATERS.

SO FAR, THE SAUCER HAS ELUDED EVERY
ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE IT OR IDENTIFY IT.

AND SINCE THAT IT REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE
ANY OF OUR SIGNALS OR WARNINGS,

WE MUST ASSUME THAT IT'S HOSTILE
CRAFT AND ACT ACCORDINGLY.

THE NAVY HAS COMMISSIONED
THE SEAVIEW FOR THIS MISSION...

BECAUSE THIS VESSEL
HAS GREATER SPEED,

MANEUVERABILITY AND
FIREPOWER THAN ANY SHIP AFLOAT.

NOW, WE HOPE TO TRACK DOWN THE
SAUCER AND FORCE ITS SURRENDER.

THANK YOU,
GENTLEMEN. THAT'S ALL.

ALL RIGHT, MEN. RETURN
TO YOUR BATTLE STATIONS.

ATTENTION, ALL HANDS.
THIS IS THE CAPTAIN.

REMAIN AT YOUR BATTLE STATIONS AND
PROCEED UNDER RIGID COMBAT CONDITIONS...

UNTIL OTHERWISE NOTIFIED.

NOW THAT'S THE NEATEST
TRICK OF THE WEEK... [Scoffs]

CHASING A FLYING
SAUCER WITH A SUBMARINE.

[Chuckles]

PREPARE TO DIVE, MR. MORTON.
MAINTAIN DEPTH AT 500 FEET.

AYE, SIR. PREPARE TO DIVE.

PREPARE TO DIVE. [Man] CLOSE
ALL MAIN VALVES, TANK VENTS.

STAND BY TO BLOW TANKS.

BALLAST TANK'S FULL.
CLOSE THE VENTS!

FLOOD NEGATIVE. DIVE.

METAL CONTACT, BEARING 1-7-1.

I CAN'T IDENTIFY IT, SIR.
MUST BE SOMETHING NEW.

THAT'S STRANGE.

YOU RUNNING A TAPE
ON THIS? YES, SIR.

FEED IT INTO THE COMPUTER. WE MAY
BE ABLE TO ISOLATE THE WAVE PATTERN.

[Man] SONAR BLIPS, SIR.
STARBOARD QUARTER.

[Beeping] THERE'S NO
APPARENT ACTIVITY.

WHATEVER THEY ARE,
THEY'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

MR. MORTON, SLOW TO ONE-THIRD.

SLOW TO ONE-THIRD.

YOU BETTER JUICE UP
YOUR TORPEDOES, CAPTAIN.

READY TORPEDOES ONE,
TWO, THREE AND FOUR.

MISSILE ROOM, READY TORPEDOES
ONE, TWO, THREE AND FOUR.

[Chain Clanking]

[Man] TORPEDOES
AT THE READY, SIR.

ACTIVATE SAIL AND NOSE CAMERAS.

TELEVISION ACTIVATED, SIR.

VEGETATION. LOOKS LIKE A
LOT OF OCEAN GARBAGE TO ME.

I ALWAYS SAID MERMAIDS
MAKE LOUSY HOUSEKEEPERS.

[Nelson] THOSE PLANTS HAVE
BEEN RIPPED OUT BY THE ROOTS.

TAKES AN AWFUL LOT
OF POWER TO DO THAT.

[Crashing]

HEY, ISN'T IT... ISN'T IT A BIT
TURBULENT FOR THIS DEPTH?

[Scoffs] FOR ANY DEPTH.

MANEUVERING, WHAT'S
SHAKING US UP LIKE THAT?

[Man On Speaker] DON'T KNOW, SIR.
IT'S LIKE A WHIRLPOOL OUT THERE.

HEAVY PRESSURE ON THE RUDDERS.

ALL AHEAD. TWO-THIRDS
STEADY ON COURSE.

SIR! HERE'S THE RESULTS
FROM THE COMPUTER.

WHAT'S THIS? WE'RE PICKING
UP A HIGH-DECIBEL SOUND.

WE'RE HOPING TO ISOLATE THE WAVE
PATTERN AND IDENTIFY THE SOURCE.

SEEMS TO BE GETTING
MUCH CLOSER NOW, SIR.

WE'RE CAUGHT IN A WHIRLPOOL! WE'LL
NEVER HOLD OUR COURSE AT THIS SPEED.

ALL AHEAD FLANK!

WE'VE DROPPED ANOTHER 200.

THIS CURRENT'LL SPIN US
RIGHT INTO THE VORTEX.

IT'LL TAKE US DOWN BELOW OUR CRUSH
DEPTH! WE'RE AT MAXIMUM POWER, ADMIRAL.

WE'LL NEED MORE THAN
MAXIMUM TO BREAK OUT OF THIS.

REACTOR ROOM! PUT STRONTIUM
PELLETS IN ALL CONVERSION CHAMBERS.

MANEUVERING...
[Sighs] WE'RE OUT OF IT.

SLOW TO ONE-THIRD. [Man On
Speaker] AYE, AYE, SIR. WITH PLEASURE.

DAMAGE CONTROL, REPORT. [Man
On Speaker] ALL SYSTEMS GO, SIR.

[High-pitched Beeping]

ADMIRAL, WE'RE GETTING
AWFULLY CLOSE TO SOMETHING.

[Static]

CAPTAIN CRANE, THEY'RE
JAMMING OUR RADIO. HERE, LISTEN!

[Static Continues]

WE'RE LOSING TV SIGNAL TOO.
LET'S GET TO THE OBSERVATION NOSE.

[Static Continues]

REPORTS FROM THE COMPUTER
PROVE THAT THE SOUND

IS COMING FROM SOME
KIND OF ELECTRICAL FORCE...

HEAT, MEASURED IN SOLAR UNITS.

SUNLIGHT AT THE
BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN?

OUR FUEL COULD BE
MEASURED IN SOLAR UNITS TOO.

URANIUM-235, STRONTIUM-90,
ANY FORM OF NUCLEAR...

[Pulsing]

WALT...

[Pulsing Continues]

MAYBE THEY'RE TRYING
TO COMMUNICATE WITH US.

MAYBE THEY ARE.

HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE WITH THEM?

SOMETHING TELLS ME...

THEY'LL FIND A WAY.

[Man On Speaker] RADIO
SIGNALS ARE SILENT, SIR.

TUBES ONE, TWO, THREE AND
FOUR ARE READY FOR FIRING.

VERY WELL, CHIEF. STAND BY.

[Pulsing Continues]

THE TORPEDOES, NELSON... WHAT
THE DEVIL ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

A REASON TO USE THEM.
I ORDER YOU TO FIRE.

NELSON, THIS IS
A CIVILIAN VESSEL.

YOU'VE BEEN COMMISSIONED
BY THE UNITED STATES NAVY TO...

TO MAKE CONTACT. TO DEFEND
OURSELVES ONLY IF ATTACKED.

SO FAR, I HAVEN'T SEEN THAT SAUCER COMMIT
ANY ACT OF AGGRESSION THAT WARRANTS...

LOOK AT THAT THING SHINE.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
WHAT'S IT MADE OF?

[Men Muttering]

[Beeping]

[Crashes]

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LIGHTS?

CUT IN THE EMERGENCY GENERATOR.

DAMAGE CONTROL, REPORT!

WHAT'D WE HIT? HEY, SONAR'S OUT.

HEY, THE COMPUTER'S
GONE! [Men Clamoring]

ALL HANDS, STAND FAST! BREAK
OUT THE BATTLE LANTERNS.

POWER'S GONE.
[Sighs] ADMIRAL NELSON!

CAPTAIN CRANE! ALL SYSTEMS
ARE DEAD... ALL OF 'EM.

NO POWER, NO LIGHTS... NOTHING.

SWITCH TO MANUAL PLANE CONTROLS.
WE'LL HOLD OUR TRIM BY HAND.

AYE, AYE, SIR!

WHAT ABOUT OUR
VENTILATION SYSTEM?

NOTHING.

NO AIR... NOT A BIT OF IT.

THERE'S NO AIR, SIR.

[Chattering] THERE'S NO AIR.

LET ME CHECK MY
INSTRUMENTS OVER HERE.

NOTHING SEEMS TO BE WORKING.
NOTHING'S WORKING HERE!

IT'S DEAD HERE. THERE'S NO AIR
COMING OUT OF HERE EITHER, SIR.

TAKE IT EASY. WE'LL BE OKAY.
KOWALSKI, WE COULD SUFFOCATE!

THIS ISN'T WORKING EITHER.

NOTHING'S WORKING. KOWALSKI!

CAN WE GET TO THE SURFACE?
WITH WHAT? WE GOT NO POWER.

HEY... WE'RE MOVING.

YEAH. YEAH.

WE'RE MOVING. HEY, WE'RE MOVING!

MUST BE SOME KIND
OF MAGNETIC FORCE.

IT'S PULLING US UP
ALONG WITH THE SAUCER.

THERE'S A LOT OF WATER
BETWEEN HERE AND THE SURFACE...

AND VERY LITTLE AIR.

I TOLD YOU WE SHOULD'VE USED THOSE
TORPEDOES WHEN WE HAD THE CHANCE, NELSON.

SPARKS, SAVE THE OXYGEN.
WE NEED ALL WE'VE GOT.

[Morton] YOU MEN OKAY?
YOU ALL RIGHT OVER HERE?

STAY RELAXED. YOU ALL RIGHT?

[Gasping] I CAN'T BREATHE.

IT'S CLOSIN' IN.

HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE.
WE GOTTA DO SOMETHIN'. RELAX.

WE GOTTA DO
SOMETHIN', SIR! RELAX!

COME ON. TAKE IT EASY, SAILOR. WHAT
ARE YOU ALL STANDIN' AROUND FOR?

WE GOTTA DO SOMETHIN'.
TAKE IT EASY, COOK!

YES, SIR. YES, SIR.

EVERYBODY ALL RIGHT IN
HERE? WE'RE OKAY, CHIEF.

WE GOTTA GET AIR IN
HERE. WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE
DOIN'? GET DOWN FROM THERE!

SIMMER DOWN, BOY!

WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE. WE GOTTA
GET OUT OF HERE. GET BACK!

I DON'T WANT TO DIE.
YOU'RE GONNA BE ALL RIGHT.

- NO, WE'RE NOT. WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!
- WE'RE GONNA BE ALL RIGHT!

NO, WE'RE NOT!

I'M SORRY, JUNIOR.

BREAK IT UP, MEN. COME ON.

I SAID, BREAK IT UP.

IT GOT A LITTLE... IT GOT A
LITTLE TENSE FOR A MINUTE, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, MEN. GIVE
ME YOUR ATTENTION.

AS YOU KNOW, THE POWER'S GONE.

THE AIR SUPPLY HAS BEEN CUT OFF.

BUT WE SEEM TO BE
HEADING FOR THE SURFACE.

THE SAUCER'S HEADING
UP AND TAKING US WITH IT.

WHAT HAPPENS...

WHEN AND IF WE
GET TO THE SURFACE,

I DON'T KNOW.

WILL WE MAKE IT IN TIME,
CAPTAIN? I DON'T KNOW, KOWALSKI.

WE'RE MOVING SLOWLY,

BUT AT LEAST WE'RE MOVING.

THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE THAT WE'LL GET TO
THE SURFACE BEFORE THE OXYGEN GIVES OUT.

NOW, SAVE YOUR BREATH... [Sighs]

AND YOUR ENERGY AND
REMAIN AT YOUR STATIONS.

OKAY.

WOULDN'T YA CALL THIS
AN ACT OF AGGRESSION?

KEEPING US PRISONER,
SUFFOCATING US?

EASY, WALT. THERE'S NO
FUTURE FOR SHORT-WINDED MEN.

ONE WORD... ALL WE NEEDED
WAS ONE WORD TO PREVENT THIS,

AND THAT WAS THE ORDER TO FIRE. WHAT
DIFFERENCE DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD'VE MADE?

OUR TORPEDOES... THEY CAN BLAST
ANY SHIP AFLOAT OUT OF THE WATER.

EVEN THAT SAUCER?

WELL, IT'S WORTH A TRY ANYHOW.

LOOK, THEY RENDERED US HELPLESS,

COMPLETELY HELPLESS
WITH ONE RAY OF LIGHT!

WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD'VE
DONE IF WE HAD BEEN THE AGGRESSORS?

[Crashing]

NOW WHAT ARE THEY
UP TO? I DON'T KNOW.

ADMIRAL, WE'RE AT
DEAD STOP AGAIN.

WHAT DO YOU THINK
OUR DEPTH IS, LEE?

WELL, FROM THE
LOOKS OF THE WATER,

I'D SAY, UH, 400 OR 500 FEET.

WE HAVE 10 DIVING MASKS ABOARD.

WE CAN SAVE THAT MANY MEN
IF WORSE COMES TO WORST.

ADMIRAL, LOOK!

[Pulsing]

WHAT IS IT? IT LOOKS LIKE
SOME SORT OF A WEAPON.

IT'S GOING ABOVE US. I WISH THERE WERE
SOME WAY WE COULD GET A BETTER LOOK.

CHIEF, GET ON THE HYDRAULIC LIFT. SEE
IF YOU CAN CRANK UP THE SCOPE BY HAND.

AYE, AYE, SIR. PATTERSON,
GIVE ME A HAND. AYE, SIR.

[Rattling]

[Rattling Continues]

WHAT WAS THAT? THERE'S
SOMETHING ON THE HULL, ADMIRAL.

GET THAT PERISCOPE
UP. AYE, AYE, SIR.

LET'S GO.

[Gasping]

[Gasps] COME ON, PATTERSON.
PUT YOUR SHOULDER IN IT.

OKAY. THAT'S ENOUGH.
HOLD IT. [Gasps]

WELL, WHAT IS IT?

THAT THING WE SAW APPROACHING, WALT,
HAS SETTLED DOWN DIRECTLY OVER THE HATCH,

JUST AFT OF THE SAIL.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE AN
ESCAPE CHAMBER. OR A BOMB!

CHIEF, I WANT A VOLUNTEER
TO GO UP TO ROOM

C-122-M WITH ME. KOWALSKI,
YOU JUST VOLUNTEERED!

KOWALSKI, BRING ALONG A
LIGHT. [Kowalski] AYE, AYE, SIR.

HAND ME THAT DOG
WRENCH. AYE, SIR.

IT'S HOLLOW. THERE'S AIR ABOVE.

YES, AND IT COULD
BE FILLED WITH GAS.

LEE, YOU AND THE OTHERS GET OUT OF HERE
AND CLOSE THAT WATERTIGHT DOOR BEHIND YOU.

- I'M GONNA CRACK THIS HATCH.
- I'M STAYING.

[Clanging]

[Sighs]

HERE. [Straining]

[Straining Continues]

WHAT'S UP THERE?
WHAT DO YOU SEE?

IT'S EMPTY. IT'S VERY MUCH LIKE
ONE OF OUR ESCAPE CHAMBERS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I THINK THAT'S
EXACTLY WHAT THEY INTENDED TO USE IT FOR.

ESCAPE TO WHAT?

I DON'T KNOW. [Tobin]
DON'T GO UP THERE!

WE CAN'T LAST MUCH LONGER
AT 400 FEET WITH NO AIR, WALT.

I CONSIDER THIS DEVICE
A CLEAR INVITATION.

IT MAY BE OUR ONLY CHANCE TO SAVE
THIS SUBMARINE, AND I INTEND TO ACCEPT.

- [Crane] I'LL GO WITH YOU.
- IT'S TOO TINY, LEE.

THERE'S ONLY ROOM FOR ONE!

HE'S MAKING HIMSELF A TARGET.

WELL, THAT'S THE
LAST WE'LL SEE OF HIM.

[Pulsing]

HELLO?

ANYONE HERE?

HELLO? HELLO!

WELCOME, MY FRIEND.

WE HAVE BEEN EXPECTING YOU.

WHY DO YOU STARE LIKE THAT?

DOES MY APPEARANCE OFFEND YOU?

[Breathing Heavily] WHO ARE YOU?

WHO ARE YOU?

TO YOUR MIND, AN ALIEN.

THEN YOU DO COME
FROM ANOTHER PLANET?

I AM. DOES THAT
FACT STARTLE YOU?

WE HAVE BEEN STUDYING
YOUR PLANET FOR SOME TIME...

YOUR LANGUAGE,
CUSTOM, CHARACTERISTICS.

YOU ARE DANGEROUSLY SENSITIVE...

TO ANYTHING YOU
DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

HOW-HOW DO YOU MEAN?

MY OWN PHYSICAL
APPEARANCE, FOR EXAMPLE.

BY YOUR STANDARDS,
IT WOULD BE REPELLENT.

SO, I HAVE ASSUMED THE
LIKENESS OF THE ONE CREATURE...

THAT COULD NOT
POSSIBLY OFFEND YOU.

I HAVE ALSO MASTERED
YOUR LANGUAGE.

I'M IMPRESSED. YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE
MORE HUMAN TRAITS THAN YOU REALIZE.

INCLUDING THE MOST
OBVIOUS TRAIT OF ALL...

FALLIBILITY.

WE ARE FAR MORE
ADVANCED THAN YOU ARE,

BUT WE DO MAKE MISTAKES.

OUR BEING HERE IS ONE OF THEM.

THEN YOUR LANDING WAS A MISTAKE?

[Scoffs] A SERIOUS BLUNDER.

THAT BLUNDER HAS LOST
US ONE OF OUR SUBMARINES

AND ALMOST CAUSED
A WORLDWIDE PANIC.

THAT WAS UNINTENTIONAL!

YOUR ATTACK ON THE SEAVIEW...
WAS THAT UNINTENTIONAL?

ATTACK?

OH, YES, THE ION RAY.

ITS EFFECTS WILL WEAR
OFF IN ABOUT AN HOUR.

LOOK, AN HOUR MAY BE TOO LATE!

WITHOUT POWER, MY MEN HAVE NO AIR.
THEY'LL DIE UNLESS THEY CAN SURFACE!

I SEE. I CANNOT SURFACE.

WE HAVE ONE CHANCE... A BREATHING
DEVICE THAT OPERATES WITHOUT POWER.

IT'S CALLED A SNORKEL, BUT IT
WON'T WORK UNDER 100 FEET.

VERY WELL.

I WILL SEE THAT YOUR CRAFT
IS BROUGHT UP TO THAT DEPTH...

IMMEDIATELY.

THANK YOU.

BUT WHY CAN'T YOU RELEASE US? I
GIVE YOU MY WORD WE WON'T ATTACK.

WE HAVE NO MEANS OF
EVALUATING YOUR WORD.

YOUR MEN WILL HAVE AIR. I
CAN PROMISE YOU NOTHING ELSE.

BUT SINCE YOU ARE IN
EFFECT OUR PRISONER,

PERHAPS WE DO OWE
YOU AN EXPLANATION.

ON OUR WAY THROUGH
YOUR SOLAR SYSTEM,

WE MISCALCULATED THE
ORBIT OF A LARGE METEOR.

THE RESULTING COLLISION
RUPTURED A LINE IN OUR FUEL SYSTEM.

THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE.

WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO?
WE HAVE PLANS, I ASSURE YOU.

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY
A MAN OF COURAGE.

OTHERWISE, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE ACCEPTED
THE INVITATION THAT BROUGHT YOU HERE.

ARE YOU ALSO A MAN OF CURIOSITY?

I'M A SCIENTIST, IF THAT TERM
HAS ANY MEANING FOR YOU.

A VAST MEANING. I AM
DELIGHTED TO HEAR IT.

WE'RE WASTING TIME. THE
MEN ON MY SUBMARINE...

WILL SOON BREATHE AGAIN!

IT HAS ALREADY BEEN ARRANGED.

[Man On Speaker] DIRECTLY BELOW
ME, SIR... THE SAUCER AND THE SEAVIEW.

DEPTH... 380 FEET.

ANY RESPONSE TO YOUR SIGNALS?

NEGATIVE, SIR.

IF THE SEAVIEW COULD
ANSWER, SHE WOULD.

ALL RIGHT. REJOIN YOUR SQUADRON.

STAND BY TO ATTACK.

[Gasping]

[Coughing]

DO YOU SEE ANYTHING YET?

NOTHING.

LET ME WATCH FOR A WHILE.

CAPTAIN, YOU GOTTA DO
SOMETHING. THE MEN CAN'T BREATHE.

WE'RE DOING THE BEST WE CAN.

SKIPPER, WE'RE MOVING!

HEY, WE'RE MOVING.

WE'RE RISING.

I THINK WE'RE HEADING
FOR THE SURFACE.

PATTERSON, GET ON THAT SCOPE
AND PUMP IT UP! AYE, AYE, SIR.

MURDOCH, STAND BY
TO CRACK AFT HATCHES.

WILLIAMS, DO THE SAME
THING FORWARD! AYE, SIR.

CHIP, I WANT YOU TO STAND BY
AND GET YOUR CREW TOPSIDE.

[Sighs]

WE'VE STOPPED AT
PERISCOPE DEPTH.

THAT'S NO HELP. WE NEED AIR.

- CHIEF.
- AYE, AYE, SIR.

- GET A DETAIL TO CRANK UP
THE SNORKEL TUBE.
- RIGHT AWAY, SIR.

CHIP, PASS THE WORD TO THE CREW.
WE'RE GONNA GET A TUBE TO THE SURFACE.

WE'LL HAND-PUMP ENOUGH AIR THROUGH
THE VENTILATING SYSTEM TO KEEP US ALIVE.

NOW GO AHEAD!

SNORKEL'S ON THE SURFACE, SIR.

FRESH AIR. [Exhales]

FRESH AIR.

OH, MAN. THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

OH, I FINALLY FOUND SOMETHING
I LIKE BETTER THAN GIRLS.

[Laughing]

JETS! THEY'RE GONNA
BOMB THE SAUCER.

WHAT IS IT? JETS.

[Electricity Crackling]

- WHAT'S WRONG?
- YOU LIED!

[Explosion]

[Bombs Exploding]

WHERE ARE YOU?

[Electricity Crackling]

WHERE ARE YOU?

WHERE ARE YOU?

[Man On Speaker]
THE WHOLE PAYLOAD,

AND IT DIDN'T EVEN PUT
A DENT IN THAT SAUCER.

ALL RIGHT. REJOIN YOUR SQUADRON.

AWAIT FURTHER ORDERS. [Man
On Speaker] ROGER. OVER AND OUT.

DETECTION REPORTS SEAVIEW STILL IN
TARGET AREA, APPARENTLY HELPLESS.

ALERT SQUADRON "B" FOR IMMEDIATE
COMBAT. CONTACT 7th FLEET HEADQUARTERS.

TELL 'EM I WANT A DESTROYER
FLOTILLA AND A SUPERCARRIER.

WE'LL HIT 'EM WITH
EVERYTHING WE'VE GOT.

BUT, SIR, WHAT ABOUT OUR SUB?

MY ORDERS ARE TO DESTROY
THE SAUCER AT ANY COST.

IF THE SUB IS IN THE TARGET
AREA, IT WILL BE DESTROYED.

YOU GAVE ME YOUR WORD
YOU WOULD NOT ATTACK.

THAT WASN'T OUR SUB.
THOSE WERE BOMBERS.

SEND 'EM A RADIO MESSAGE. THEY'LL
HOLD OFF THE ATTACK AND NEGOTIATE.

WE CANNOT CONTACT THEM. WHY?
YOU SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE PERFECTLY.

UNFORTUNATELY, OUR COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
AND YOUR SO-CALLED RADIO ARE INCOMPATIBLE.

THEY CANNOT RECEIVE US.

THEN WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO?

RIDE OUT THE ATTACK AND WAIT.

I'VE ALREADY CONTACTED
ANOTHER CRAFT.

IT IS ON ITS WAY HERE NOW
WITH THE FUEL WE NEED.

UNTIL THEN, WE ARE CONFINED
TO YOUR EARTHLY ATMOSPHERE.

ANOTHER CRAFT...

LIKE THIS ONE?
SIMILAR TO THIS ONE,

BUT MORE HEAVILY ARMED.

THAT COULD BE INTERPRETED
AS AN INVASION, AN ACT OF WAR.

THE WAR HAS ALREADY BEGUN!

IT WAS NOT OUR
CHOICE. YOUR PEOPLE...

INTERPRETED A SIMPLE MISTAKE
AS AN ACT OF AGGRESSION.

WHEN OUR NEXT CRAFT
COMES WITH THE FUEL WE NEED,

I HAVE NO DOUBT
THAT YOUR PEOPLE...

WILL CONSIDER IT AN
INVASION FROM OUTER SPACE!

YES, I'M AFRAID THEY WILL.

AND WHEN THE EFFECTS
OF THE ION RAY WEAR OFF,

I AM QUITE SURE THAT YOUR SUBMARINE
WILL TURN ALL OF ITS ARMS AGAINST US.

YOU SHOULDN'T WORRY. YOU
CAN ALWAYS USE THAT RAY AGAIN.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT.

OUR FUEL RESERVE IS DRAINING
OFF, AND WITH IT, OUR POWER.

WITHOUT POWER, WE ARE
ALMOST AS HELPLESS AS YOU ARE.

AND IF THE BOMBERS ATTACK AGAIN,

SEAVIEW WILL BE BLOWN TO BITS.

MORE THAN THAT. ANOTHER ATTACK
UPON US WILL BRING RETALIATION!

THAT WILL LEAVE YOUR
PLANET A DEAD CINDER IN SPACE.

THERE'S A WHOLE
FORMATION OF JETS UP THERE.

THEY'RE JUST SITTING UP THERE!

WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR?

WHY DON'T THEY PULL THE STRINGS?

MAYBE THEY KNOW THE ADMIRAL'S OVER
WITH THE SAUCER. HOW COULD THEY KNOW?

OUR RADIO'S USELESS. BE
IMPOSSIBLE FOR 'EM TO KNOW.

HOW CAN YOU STAND THERE
AND TALK ABOUT AN ATTACK NOW?

LOOK, CAPTAIN CRANE. YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I
KNOW THAT A NEW ATTACK UPON THAT SAUCER...

WOULD BE THE END OF THIS
SUBMARINE AND EVERY MAN ABOARD IT!

IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT,
ADMIRAL? NO, I DON'T!

I'M UNDER ORDERS TO
TRACK DOWN THAT SAUCER

AND DESTROY IT BEFORE
IT DESTROYS OUR PEOPLE.

AND LET ME REMIND YOU
OF SOMETHING, CAPTAIN.

WE WON'T BE THE FIRST MEN
TO DIE FOLLOWING ORDERS.

THE CORE OF YOUR FUEL SYSTEM...
HEAT UNITS, NUCLEAR POWER.

THAT IS RIGHT. THE SAME BASIC
FUEL USED ON YOUR SUBMARINE.

OUR FUEL CONSISTS OF URANIUM
DIOXIDE ENRICHED WITH URANIUM-235.

YES, I KNOW. WE HAVE
ALREADY ANALYZED IT.

THAT POWER IS HARDLY ADEQUATE.

WHEN WE WANT MORE
POWER, WE USE STRONTIUM-90.

IN WHAT FORM?

PELLETS... STRONTIUM-90 PELLETS.

PRIMITIVE, BASIC,

BUT WE HAVE THE MEANS OF
CONVERTING STRONTIUM-90.

SOLAR UNITS, RIGHT?

THOSE PELLETS COULD
GIVE YOU THE FUEL YOU NEED.

ENOUGH TO BOOST US BEYOND
THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE.

AFTER THAT, WE COULD RENDEZVOUS
WITH THE SPACESHIP THAT IS ON ITS WAY.

LET ME GO BACK TO THE
SEAVIEW. I'LL SEE YOU

GET ALL THE FUEL YOU
NEED. I PROMISE YOU THAT!

YOU LIED TO US ONCE. WHY
SHOULD WE TRUST YOU NOW?

YOUR MILITARY COMMANDERS ARE ALREADY
MOBILIZING FOR A FULL-SCALE ATTACK.

WHEN THEY DO, THEY'LL BRING BACK A
COUNTERATTACK, AND EARTH WILL BE DESTROYED.

- DO YOU WANT THAT TO HAPPEN?
- NOT PARTICULARLY.

NEITHER DO I. THIS IS MY HOME,

AND I DON'T INTEND FOR YOU
OR ANYONE ELSE TO DESTROY IT.

HOW IS IT TO BE PREVENTED?

BY PROVING TO YOU
THAT YOU CAN TRUST ME.

WE'LL NEED A FEW MOMENTS
TO CONVERT THE STRONTIUM,

A FEW MOMENTS TO GET
OUR CRAFT UNDER WAY.

I PROMISE YOU, I'LL BE BACK WITH
THE PELLETS BEFORE THE ATTACK.

[Pulsing]

DO YOU REALLY THINK
THEY'RE GOING TO ATTACK, SIR?

I DON'T KNOW.

THEY'RE WAITING
FOR REINFORCEMENTS.

IT'LL BE A FULL-SCALE ATTACK WHEN
IT COMES. [Kowalski] HEY, CAPTAIN!

SAY, THAT THING'S COMING BACK FROM THE
SAUCER WE SAW FROM THE OBSERVATION NOSE.

[Thuds]

I'VE ONLY GOT A FEW MINUTES. I'LL EXPLAIN
THE WHOLE THING TO YOU WHEN I GET BACK.

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
THEY'LL LET YOU COME BACK?

I KNOW THEY WILL. THEY'VE GOT
NO REASON TO KEEP ME PRISONER.

IT'D BE A PRIZE
ACQUISITION FOR THEM...

AN EARTH CREATURE, SOMETHING TO KEEP
IN A BOTTLE ON THEIR LABORATORY SHELF.

[Scoffs] YOU'RE TALKING
NONSENSE, WALT.

SAY, YOU SAID OUR RADIO
WILL BE WORKING SOON. GOOD.

WE'LL ANNOUNCE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD
THAT YOU'RE BACK SAFE ABOARD THE SEAVIEW.

THEN WE'LL GET OUT OF BOMBER RANGE,
AND WE'LL BLAST THAT SAUCER APART.

WHY, IN THE NAME OF
HEAVEN, WOULD WE DO THAT,

EVEN IF WE COULD? YOU'RE
FORGETTING ONE THING.

THAT SAUCER REPRESENTS THE GREATEST
THREAT TO OUR SECURITY IN HISTORY.

LOOK... THEY DIDN'T COME HERE
EITHER AS FRIENDS OR ENEMIES.

THEY CAME HERE BY MISTAKE, BUT I
INTEND TO SEE THAT THEY LEAVE AS FRIENDS.

I HAVEN'T GOT TIME
TO ARGUE WITH YOU. AS

SOON AS CRANE GETS
HERE WITH THOSE PELLETS...

YOU FORGET THOSE
PELLETS, ADMIRAL.

OUR ORDERS ARE TO CAPTURE
AND DESTROY THAT SAUCER.

EVEN IF IT MEANS DESTROYING
OURSELVES? THAT'S THE NATURE OF WAR.

ANY FORM OF COMBAT
IS A CALCULATED RISK.

AT THE MOMENT, MY ONLY
WAR SEEMS TO BE WITH

YOU, WALT. NOW GET
OUT OF MY WAY BEFORE...

IF YOU DELIVER THOSE STRONTIUM
PELLETS OR ALLOW THAT SAUCER TO ESCAPE,

YOU'LL BE CHARGED
WITH INSUBORDINATION...

FOR DELIBERATELY GIVING AID
AND COMFORT TO THE ENEMY.

ADMIRAL, HERE IT IS! ALL THE
STRONTIUM WE COULD FIND.

[Tobin] FORGET IT,
CRANE! FUEL STAYS HERE.

REAR ADMIRAL TOBIN SEEMS TO BE
OUR SELF-APPOINTED SAVIOR, LEE.

HE WANTS TO MAKE THE
WORLD SAFE FOR DISASTER.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME. WE'VE GOT TO
DELIVER THIS FUEL BEFORE THE ATTACK COMES.

OUR POWER'S COMING BACK.

WE CAN MOVE, GET OUT OF
BOMBER RANGE BEFORE THE ATTACK,

OR... OR UNLESS YOU'D
RATHER SEE US ALL GET KILLED?

I INTEND TO KEEP MY WORD
TO THEM. STAY PUT, NELSON!

CAPTAIN CRANE,

AS YOUR SUPERIOR OFFICER, I'M
ASSUMING COMMAND OF THIS SUBMARINE.

I ORDER YOU TO PUT ADMIRAL
NELSON UNDER ARREST.

AS YOU WISH, SIR.

BY ORDER OF THE UNITED
STATES NAVY, ADMIRAL NELSON,

YOU ARE TO BE CONFINED TO YOUR
QUARTERS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

CRANE! OPEN THIS DOOR!

OPEN THIS DOOR, I SAY! [Banging]

WELL, HE'S JUST SIGNED OUR DEATH
WARRANT. I GUESS YOU REALIZE THAT.

I REALIZE THAT CAPTAIN CRANE HAS VERY
LIKELY SAVED THE LIVES OF ALL OF US ABOARD,

INCLUDING YOURS.

WELCOME ABOARD, CAPTAIN.

THANK YOU.

WELL, THEY'VE GOT THEIR FUEL.

NOW WE'LL ALL BE
BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER.

- I HOPE YOU'RE WRONG, WALT.
- SO DO I.

[Door Rattles]

UH, EXCUSE ME, SIRS. CAPTAIN CRANE SAID YOU
WERE HAVING SOME TROUBLE WITH THIS DOOR.

WELL, WE CAN'T DO ANY
GOOD STAYING HERE.

LET'S GO.

THANKS, CHIEF.

MISSILE CONTROL BOARD WORKING.

[Morton] DESTROYER
FLOTILLA APPROACHING.

BEARING 0-9-0. THE ATTACK.

SPARKS, IS THE
RADIO WORKING YET?

WE'RE GETTING MORE JUICE NOW,
SIR. I'M TRYING TO GET A MESSAGE OUT.

KEEP ON IT.

PLANES ARE STARTING IN.

THOSE PLANES'LL MAKE
SHORT WORK OF US.

ALL NAVAL UNITS IN POSITION.
PASS THE WORD TO ATTACK.

SIR? WE'VE REESTABLISHED
CONTACT WITH THE SEAVIEW.

THEY REPORT THEIR CAPTAIN'S BEING
HELD ON THE SAUCER AS A HOSTAGE.

NOTIFY ALL UNITS TO
HOLD ASSAULT FORMATIONS.

WE'LL GIVE THEM 10 MINUTES
TO RETIRE TO A SAFE DISTANCE,

THEN ATTACK.

WITH ONE OF OUR MEN ABOARD, SIR?

IF THEY DON'T TURN HIM
LOOSE IN 10 MINUTES...

YES.

[Man] ADMIRAL, ESCAPE
DEVICE APPROACHING.

IT'S CRANE. THEY'RE
RETURNING HIM.

GET HIM ABOARD,
AND WE CAN ATTACK.

CONTACT WITH
DEVICE ON HULL, SIR.

COME ON!

[Exhales] YOU ALL RIGHT, LEE?

FINE. JUST FINE. ADMIRAL,
WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I SAW...

I KNOW, I KNOW.
BELIEVE ME, I KNOW.

SPARKS, GET ME THE COMMANDING
GENERAL OF THE ATTACK FORCE.

TOP PRIORITY! YOU CAN'T STOP THE
ATTACK NOW. THEY'VE GOT THEIR ORDERS.

YOU BETTER PRAY THAT
SAUCER GETS AWAY IN TIME.

[Rumbling]

[Roaring]

WE HAVEN'T GOT A WEAPON
THAT CAN TOUCH IT NOW.

WELL, MAY... MAYBE
IT'S JUST AS WELL.

WE CAN EXPECT TO
SEE IT AGAIN SOMEDAY.

I HOPE THEY'LL REMEMBER
THEY WERE TREATED AS FRIENDS.

THEY'LL REMEMBER ALL RIGHT.

I WONDER IF WE WILL.
