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.

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: Begin recording – hello old friend, I hope this finds you well ...
