PAGE 39 (Four panels)
Panel 1: Something like a giant beach ball blowing up into the tank where Hiram dropped the capsule.
SFX – DETONATING CAPSULE (1): FWOOOM!
Translation (1): FWOOOM!
Panel 2: Hiram pointing to a projected slide. It shows a silhouette of a woman in profile. In the middle of the silhouette, mapped out in white space, is a representation of her digestive tract. A dotted line from her mouth down to her stomach indicates the path that the capsule has presumably taken. Hiram is pointing at a little capsule shown resting in her stomach.
CAPTION – UNSEEN INTERVIEWER (2): How is that supposed to help you capture the creature?
Translation (2): In che modo potrebbe aiutarti a catturare la creatura?
Hiram (3): Simple, really. Our subject swallows the capsule at the start of the exercise.
Translation (3): Semplice, davvero. Il nostro soggetto ingoia la capsula all’inizio dell’esercizio.
Panel 3: Hiram pointing to another projection. It is a large silhouette of the outline of the creature (or what the research team thinks it looks like anyway). There is a similar white space representing the creature’s digestive tract, and in the middle of that tract, another silhouette of a woman. There is also another dotted line showing the path that the woman took from the mouth of the siphon down to the creature’s stomach.
Hiram (4): In the course of her interaction with the creature, the subject will be ingested and then subsequently digested.
Translation (4): Nel corso della sua interazione con la creatura, il soggetto sarà ingerito e successivamente digerito.
Panel 4: Another projection, this time showing the creature, change will be detected by but with a FWOOM in the middle of its digestive tract.
Hiram (5): At a sufficiently advanced stage of the digestion of the subject, the chemical change will be detected by the sensors, setting off the explosive charge.
Translation (5): Ad una fase sufficientemente avanzata della digestione del soggetto, il sensore chimico rileva i cambiamenti, attivando la carica esplosiva.
Hiram (6): We believe the resulting explosion will both stun the creature and, by changing its buoyancy, force it to the surface, where it can be collected.
Translation (6): Crediamo che la conseguente esplosione stordirà la creatura e, modificandone la galleggiabilità, la costringerà a spingersi in superficie, dove potrà essere raccolta.
