Sleipnir, weíre in!
Roger, be careful.
This seems to be the living area. Pretty narrow in here.
Thatís the passage to the bridge.
Look for data carriers or recording tools.
How did these things look like?
I donít know. Most things worked on magnetic basis or early silicon technology.
Hel, I found something. This looks like a recording tool.
Fantastic! Look at all the old equipment!
Can you imagine the consequences of our discovery? We stumbled
over one of the greatest mysteries of mankind.
Hopefully, we can evaluate these things.
How gets a primitive space shuttle in the orbit of a Marsís moon?
Extraterrestrial? Could this be the proof?
The answer may lie in the old recordings. Hagen, can you use the data?
That depends... I canít guaranty for anything. It will cost a lot of effort and time.
The magnetic storm makes a connection to earth still impossible.
Damn it. Now, where we made the discovery of the century and need the support of central office so badly.
The shuttle is still from the time before the collapse?
In the past the world was more chaotic and confusing, as we know it
today. It was a plutocratic and superstitious plait of countries. That
lead to its downfall, as we all know.
The United States of America was the most powerful and technological advanced country.
They developed the first generation of earth orbiter at the end of the 20th century. In the early 21st century the Space Shuttle Discovery disappeared for completely unknown reasons. She definitely wasnít designed for interplanetary travel.
The computers could reconstruct parts of the destroyed files and convert them on a data crystal.
But Iím saying it right away, itís not perfect. The data carriers are more than 300 years old. I edited the most important scenes together. Prepare for some revelations.
Well, Hagen! Letís see what we brought from the ghost ship.
I canít translate it without help from earth.
What is that?!
This is really an alien spaceship!
That scene is from the outboard camera.
We must inform central office from our find.
How about a connection to earth, Edda?
The magnetic storm diminished. Once weíre out of the moon shadow, a connection to earth should be possible again.
Position alert! Something is closing in on us with high speed!
Itís the same spaceship, like in the recording!
Cut the connection to the shuttle and scramble!
The ship doesnít react! All systems dead! Artificial gravity is gone!
Yggdrasil, this is Sleipnir! Aliens threaten us! Yggdrasil!! I still canít get a connection to earth!
We are inside the aliens!
