Single panel: View in the galley of the ship, probably from a high angle as this is likely to be a fairly long, narrow space. Turpentine is prominent. He’s dressed as if for a special occasion, wearing a jacket and a bow tie. Eliza and Daphne are both prominent. Among the other people in the galley should be the other characters we’ve seen so far, including Captain Drummingdale, Hiram, and Claudia. There should be others – various ship’s officers and other scientists, that sort of people. Drummingdale is holding a small coin up for everyone to view.

Turpentine (2): All right, people, now comes the moment when we decide. We are going to determine which of our brave volunteers goes first. We shall flip this twenty-dollar gold coin.
Translation (2): Va bene, gente, ora arriva il momento in cui decidiamo. Stabiliremo quale delle nostre coraggiose volontarie va per prima. Lanceremo questa moneta d’oro da venti dollari.
