The Transcript For This Page
Back at Helios base, in the monitoring room, Seamus notices a problem on one of his monitors.
Caption: Two and a half minutes later, on Mercury:
Seamus: Oh, no.
Wayne: What is it?
Both men are now peering intently at one of Seamus' monitors.
Seamus: There, see it? A new magnetic depression is forming.
Wayne: Right in the flyer's path!
Looking over the men's shoulders at the monitor. It shows the surface of Sol, with various lines and icons indicating the position of the Flyer.
Seamus: It could sprout a prominence at any moment.
Wayne: Can the Flyer survive contact with a prominence?
Back to the shot in the first panel, only now most of the monitors have gone dark or are showing flatlines. Seamus looks like he's in shock. Wayne is concerned but not as overwhelmed.
Wayne: Apparently not.
Inside the Helio-Flyer cockpit, Nicole checks all systems.
Nicole: Confirming altitude 500 km, speed 436 kps, course is on track.
Nicole: Confirming all ship's systems are in condition green.
Ext view of Helio-Flyer zooming across the swirling solarscape.
Nicole: Magnetic flux conditions show at 96 percent of forecast.
Nicole: I'm making a run for the equator.

Nicole: Time to package drop is 32 minutes.
Closer-in close-up of Nicole, looking a bit tense.
Nicole (thought): Assuming I can avoid getting either broiled by the Corona or ripped to shreds in the Photosphere before then.
