Turpentine (4): Listen, I’ve talked with the expedition sponsor via satellite phone. He understands how critical you’ve become to the success of this expedition, and he has said he’s willing to raise the charitable donation to five million dollars if you can…cooperate.

Translation (4): Послушайте, я разговаривал со спонсором по спутниковому телефону. Он понимает, насколько вы важны для успеха экспедиции, и готов повысить благотворительный взнос до пяти миллионов, если вы сможете…сотрудничать.

Panel 4: View of Claudia sitting on her bunk in her cabin. Her arms angrily folded over her chest, her face set. This panel is “surveillance video” so it should have a somewhat vaguer, grainer look to it than most panels.

Translation (5): С пятью миллионами долларов вы сможете принести кучу пользы миру, Клаудия.

Turpentine (1): The attempt with the second subject failed due to premature detonation.

Translation (1): Эксперимент со вторым объектом провалился из-за преждевременной детонации.

Turpentine (2): We must learn to accept this as scientists, with quiet dignity and grace…

PAGE 59 (Four panels)

Panel 1: Daphne standing in a different cabin. She’s wearing a comparatively modest black one-piece swimsuit. She is wearing a pair of swimmer’s goggles, now dangling around her neck. She’s holding one of the capsules between her thumb and forefinger and examining it with a skeptical expression. Hiram stands to one side, his face wearing a bit of a smirk.

Daphne (1): So, this has been recalibrated, has it?

Translation (1): Так что, эта штука рекалибрована?

Hiram (2): Yes. To much higher sensitivity settings.

Translation (2): Да, теперь чувствительность намного выше.

Daphne (3): Well, here’s hoping you got it right this time, Hiram.

PAGE 42 (Four panels)

Panel 1: Eliza standing at the boarding counter for an international flight, with Daphne behind her. A GATE AGENT is checking Eliza’s documents prior to her boarding.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (1): At long last the preparations were made. The volunteers boarded a flight for Southeast Asia…

Translation (1): Наконец все было готово. Девушки-волонтеры вылетели на самолете в Юго-восточную Азию.

Panel 2: Eliza and Daphne sitting side-by-side in large, first-class seats in a first-class cabin. Eliza is holding a flute of champagne and Daphne is reading a book.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (2): The benefactor behind the exhibition arranged for them to travel first class.

Translation (2): Спонсор забронировал им места в первом классе.

Panel 3: Claudia in coach class, crammed into the middle seat of three between Hiram and another passenger. Hiram looks like he’s trying to get Claudia’s attention, perhaps even hitting on her. The other passenger, a FAT MAN, has gone to sleep. Claudia stares forward with Stoic resignation.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (3): Most of the other specialists on the exhibition had to travel in coach.

Translation (3): Большинству остальных специалистов пришлось довольствоваться вторым.

Panel 4: Eliza, followed by Daphne, followed by Claudia, walking up the gangway to the RV Seagoon.

All three are carrying bags, with Claudia’s being by far the largest.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (4): After arriving in Singapore, volunteers and crew board the research vessel RV Seagoon for their venture in the South Seas.

Translation (4): Прибыв в Сингапур, волонтеры и члены экспедиции пересели на исследовательское судно RV Seagoon и отправились к южным морям.

PAGE 36 (Four panels)

Panel 1: Claudia, in coveralls and wearing goggles, sitting at a high-tech workbench making adjustments to a tiny (about the size of a toaster) submersible drone.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (1): Ethical objections aside, preparations for an expedition are laid in.

Translation (1): Независимо от споров об этике, приготовления к экспедиции продолжались.

Panel 2: Claudia now being interviewed in the lab. She has pushed her goggles up on her forehead, and her face has some sooty smudges on it.

SUBTITLE (2): Claudia Honeywood, Ph.D., Project Robotics Engineer.

Translation (2): Клаудия Ханивуд, Ph.D., инженер по робототехнике.

Claudia (3): The creature will probably be able to block communications with our expedition ship, but we think a tightly focused beam from our subjects to a submersible might be possible. We can capture and retrieve data from it later.

Translation (3): Животному, вероятно, удастся заблокировать связь с нашим экспедиционным судном, однако сильно сфокусированный луч сможет связать наших девушек с подводным модулем. Позднее мы извлечем из него данные.

Panel 3: A somewhat cleaned-up Claudia showing the submersible to Daphne and Eliza. Daphne seems interested, Eliza almost enchanted.

Claudia (4): Okay, ladies. So, one of you at least is going to be talking to this.

Translation (4): Ну что ж, девочки, по крайней мере одной из вас придется говорить с ним.

Eliza (5): Ooh, it’s so cute!

Translation (5): Ах! Какой симпатичный!

Panel 4: Claudia fitting something behind Eliza’s ear.

Claudia (6): This sensor will transmit biometrics. It will also scan your brain’s speech center and allow you to provide some narration of your experiences.

Translation (6): Этот сенсор будет транслировать биометрику. Он также сканирует речевой центр вашего мозга и позволит вам рассказать о вашем самочувствии.

Eliza (7): I really want to try that…

Translation (7): Скорее бы попробовать…

Claudia (8): You will. We need testing.

Translation (8): Конечно. Мы проведем тест.

PAGE 26 (Four panels)

Panel 1: Professor Turpentine, sitting in a cramped academic office. Behind him are shelves stacked with books and papers. He’s wearing a rumpled tweed jacket and being interviewed behind his desk.

Turpentine (1): This creature, whatever it is, is highly intelligent. It can evade ordinary capture methods with ease. It also generates electromagnetic and subsonic fields that interfere with underwater communications. And it even cuts control cables.

Translation (1): Это существо, кем бы оно не было, высокоразумно. Оно способно с легкостью избегать любых методов ловли. Оно также генерирует электромагнитные и инфразвуковые поля, создающие помехи подводным коммуникациям, и даже перерезает кабели.

SUBTITLE (2): Professor Eustace Turpentine, Innsmouth Institute for Marine Research.

Translation (2): Профессор Юстас Терпентайн, Иннсмутский институт морских исследований.

Panel 2: CLAUDIA HONEYWOOD (“Claudia”) holds in her hands a submersible drone – and underwater swimming robot about the size of a toaster, in her hands, holding it forth for the camera to take a picture of. Claudia is a very attractive woman, but she downplays her attractiveness, being here in a set of coveralls, her long brown hear drawn back in a bun, and here wearing heavy safety glasses. (When Claudia is not wearing these glasses she wears other glasses that make her look a bit dorky, or at least as dorky as a beautiful person can be.)

CAPTION – TURPENTINE NARRATING (3): But recently, artificial intelligence has advanced to the point where we can make effective autonomous underwater drones.

Translation (3): Однако недавние достижения в области искусственного интеллекта позволили нам создать эффективных автономных подводных роботов.

Panel 3: Claudia on board ship in another cramped control room, this time also looking at a monitor. Claudia is now dressed in a white coat and is wearing glasses with heavy dark frames.

CAPTION – TURPENTINE NARRATING (4): The creature leaves the drones alone for some reason. These drones can also penetrate the deep trenches where the creature likes to lurk.

Translation (4): По каким-то причинам чудовище не трогает роботов. Эти роботы также могут проникать в глубокие подводные впадины, где чудовище любит прятаться.

Panel 4: A murky image of the creature, a sort of giant squidlike thing with one large siphon (big enough for someone to fit down) and a large number of tentacles of all sorts and shapes.

CAPTION – TURPENTINE NARRATING (5): Thanks to these clever little machines, we now have a good sense of the gross morphology of the creature.

Translation (5): Благодаря этим умным маленьким аппаратам теперь у нас есть хорошее представление о строении этого существа.

CAPTION – UU Minister speaking (3): For is that not what human decency really requires?

Translation (3): Denn ist nicht das, was die menschliche Würde wirklich erfordert?
