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.

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.

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

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

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.

CAPTION – TURPENTINE NARRATING (4): We had them sign agreements of various kinds: consents to the procedure, agreements to prominent mention in all publications related to the project, and also contracts with compensation of a sort: a charity of each’s choosing would get a contribution of $1,000,000 upon each’s completion of her…contribution.

Translation (4): Они подписали кучу разных документов: согласие на процедуру, согласие на упоминание в публикациях, относящихся к данному проекту, а также контракты с благотворительным взносом в размере $1 000 000, который будет внесен ими после выполнения их… миссии.

PAGE 57 (Four panels)

Panel 1: Daphne, sitting in a cabin on the RV Seagoon (porthole visible behind her), being interviewed.

Unseen interviewer (out-of-panel balloon) (1): You have to know that there’s been a lot of mail, and a lot of chatter on social media, to the effect that you’re crazy, that you’re unstable, that you’re suicidal, that someone should stop you, and so on.

Translation (1): Sie müssen wissen, dass wir viele Mails bekommen haben und in den sozialen Medien viel geschrieben wird…Sie seien verrückt, mental instabil, suizidal, dass man sie aufhalten muss und so weiter.

Translation (2): Ja, dessen bin ich mir bewusst. Und ich möchte etwas sagen.

PAGE 44 (Single panel page)

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. Turpintine is holding a small coin up for everyone to view.

CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (1): As the RV Seagoon approaches the island of Motofupo, there is a dramatic moment.

Translation (1): Als die RV Seagoon die Insel Motofupo erreicht, gibt es einen dramatischen Moment.

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): Alles klar, Leute, jetzt ist der Moment gekommen. Wir müssen entscheiden, welche unserer tapferen Versuchspersonen beginnen soll. Wir warden diese Zwanzig-Dollar-Goldmünze werfen.
