The Transcript For This Page
In Seamus and Nicole's stateroom, we are looking at the wall-sized viewscreen from a viewpoint behind Seamus and Nicole, sitting on Seamus' extended bunk. On the screen we see some sort of anachronistic drama – the setting looks like a 19th-Century drawing room but the people looked like the walked off the set of Jersey Shores.
Caption: Alpine Dream's staterooms all have wall-screens offering views of just about anything – from the space-scape outside the ship to programming from more than 2,000 broad- and narrow-cast stations on Terra, Luna, L-5 City, and Mars.
Swap view so we can see Nicole and Seamus, both have their backs propped up on cushions. Seamus looks rather bored, but Nicole is very much enjoying the presented drama.
Caption: One draw-back is that all of a stateroom's guests must agree on what to view.
Same shot. Nicole is startled by the noise of Seamus' fart.
Nicole holds her hands over nose and mouth in alarm, Seamus looks apologetic.
Seamus: Terribly sorry – another consequence of my endocrine problem is, er, occasional digestive malfunctions.
Nicole rises and walks away, waving her hand in front of her face.
Nicole: Ugh. Now I really need some fresh air. See you in a few hours.
Glancing sideways towards the door, Seamus pulls his own portable Screen from between two of the cushions.
Seamus leans back against the cushions and dictates to the Screen he's holding before him.
Seamus: Watson, record audio message.
Seamus: Send with privacy key to Po Xu-Ke, Xīn Xīān, Huǒxīng .
Seamus: Begin recording – hello old friend, I hope this finds you well ...

Seamus: I am about three days out from Mercury and Helios Base.
Seamus: Everything is set up for the package drop …
