The Transcript For This Page
Nicole, in her Bubb, in an airlock that's a bit darker than the one she left a few minutes before. A sigil on the wall reads 'EG1.' She's still shaky but recovering.
Electronic voice: Outer door sealed, lock pressurizing.
A door in the airlock ceiling opens, Nicole looks up at it.
Electronic voice: Please proceed through overhead door to reception area.
Nicole: Overhead -?
Nicole in her Bubb enters another room about 5 meters square. In the corner we see an airlock door in the floor through which she has egressed. Nicole is looking around with a mixture of nervousness and curiosity. The walls are covered in a pattern of large, circular dimples.
Electronic voice: Welcome to Castle Hodge-Podge. Please dismount your Bubb and approach the inner door.
Split panel – having dismounted, Nicole stands before a rectangular doorway. There is no indication of a button or means of opening it.
Nicole: Uh – hello?
The door whooshes upwards. We see Nicole through the doorway, and she's taken aback by the sudden movement.
Split panel again. Medium close-up of Nicole looking slightly downward, eyes wide.
Another split panel. A close-up of a man's rather pudgy hand held sideways across a broad torso, clad in dark, flowing clothing
Nicole looking slightly upward, still eyes wide
Nicole: huh ...
View of the same man from the chest up to the treble-chin
Nicole looking up at a 45 degree angle, her mouth agape.
Nicole: ... ubbuh ...
Looking up at the face of Dr. Seamus O Murchada – clean-shaven, a broad, generous mouth, a prominent nose, a mop of curly hair, and tired , brow-less eyes looking down at the camera.
Full-length shot of Nicole and Seamus facing each other across the doorway. Seamus is nearly two heads taller than Nicole and a bit more than a meter wide. His clothing is loose and drapes almost to the floor. On Earth he'd weigh 500 pounds.
Nicole: .. um ...
Seamus turns around and motions Nicole to follow him.
Seamus: I get that rather a lot.
Seamus: Please come with me.
