The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Nicole in the control cabin of the Helio-Flyer. She is in a heavy environment suit. Lighted consoles surround her. We can see her expression of concentration.
Nicole (thinking): The northern edge of the Corona is 3 degrees higher than forecast.
Nicole (thending): Lower angle of attack to minus 45 degrees. We're going in steep.

Panel 2
Same shot. Now she is fighting off boredom.
Nicole (thinking): Forty-seven minutes 30 seconds to package drop.
Nicole (thinking): Forty-seven minutes 25 seconds to package drop.

Panel 3
Now she's frantically punching buttons on the consoles.
Nicole (thending): Dang these magnetic currents! We're going to breach the chromosphere!

Panel 4
Now the simulator is tilted, with cabin and occupant rotated clockwise 80 degrees.
Nicole: (thinking): We are 4 degrees east of our track! How did that happen?
Nicole: (thending): Starboard 45 degrees! We're almost at the drop point!
Panel 5
Nicole is repeatedly jabbing a particular button on her right-side console.
Nicole: Drop tube 7! Why aren't you on-line?

Panel 6
Now the cabin is rotated 140 degrees clockwise. Nicole looks near panic as she furiously taps console buttons.
Nicole: Prominence ahead! Where'd that come from?
Nicole: Hard aport! Boost shields!

Panel 7
Black panel, in which we can only see Nicole's eyes. She looks very annoyed.
Nicole: Shuck.

Panel 8
Exterior, Helio-Flyer simulator. A large capsule has its canopy open and we can see Nicole sitting inside. Seamus is standing close by on a platform. The capsule rests in a yoke that rotates 360 degrees on two axes. The room they are in has some machinery and several observation windows along the walls.
Seamus: Don't feel badly. You have time for one more run-through.
Nicole: Look, if I can't have booze can I at least have some chocolate?
