The Transcript For This Page
Nicole and Seamus glide through a passageway into the Staisiún Étaín. They propel themselves via hand-rails placed at intervals along the walls.
Nicole: To bad we have to rush through this.
Nicole: I would've liked to look at the gear they have here – it's supposed to be state-of-the-art.
Nicole and Seamus emerge into a larger compartment and are met by an android who looks vaguely like a Buddhist monk.
Monk: And indeed it is, Ms. Oresme.
Monk: I am called Monk.
Monk: Perhaps we can arrange a tour?
Monk rotates to orient himself 'upward' and glides away. Nicole and Seamus turn to follow him.
Seamus: I'm afraid we're on a tight schedule.
Monk: Your reservation is on file, Dr. O Murchadha. Please follow me.
Monk leads Nicole and Seamus past a space full of gadgetry. Nicole looks like a kid in a candy store.
Seamus: The data has been recorded and sealed as instructed, yes?
Monk: All solar data from the time-stamps you provided.
They enter a room with a bank of shallow, numbered booths, inside each of which are a pair of hand grips, and what looks like stereoscopic viewers attached to a larger machine..
Monk: You are set up for booths 1 and 2.
Seamus: Thank you, Monk. Nicole, please take booth 1.
Seamus and Nicole are now in the booths, their faces pressed against the stereoscopes.
Nicole: How does this work?
Seamus: A high-frequency micro-burst into the ocular receptors that came with your implant.
Seamus: Nearly a teraquad of data transferred in one second.
Same shot, but now the data is being transferred. There is a bright flash seen around the edges of the stereoscopes. Nicole and Seamus are jolted.
Nicole and Seamus fall back a bit in the weightlessness, looking disoriented and with white pupils.
Seamus: Mind you, there is a temporary disorienting effect.
