Ada, where am I? Ada: You are in orbit of Q-465b. What about Philip? Ada: Philip’s cryopod has lost power. His oxygen level is critical. Plot a course to get me next to him. Ada: This will significantly reduce your power reserves. You may not have enough to return to Solis. Are you sure? Emiliana: Positive, do it. [pod engines fire up] [low fuel warning beeps] Decelerate. Deploy the left lateral connectors. Reverse engines. Get me to Solis. Ada: Power reserves depleted. Emiliana: Open doors to docking bay 2. Ada: Understood. But you won’t be able to correct your trajectory. Deploy top connectors. Magnetize. [alarm cycles] Ada, power up the medlab. Ada: Understood. Ada, what’s wrong with the med equipment? Ada: The medical equipment is functioning properly. Is Philip alive? Ada: Yes. Then why are the probes telling me he’s dead? Ada: I don’t know. Keep pumping O2 no matter what it says. Ada: Understood. Ada. What the fuck happened? Ada: I don’t know. Why did you eject our cryopods? Ada: I did not eject any of the cryopods on the ship. We landed with them. That means we should have been ejected. Ada: I cannot explain this discrepancy. [thud echoes aboard the ship] [whispers] Ada… Who else is on the ship? Ada: You and Philip Mayda are the only people on the ship. How many living beings are on the ship? Ada: Two. How many heat sources of approximately 37 degrees are on the ship? Ada: Three. [erie music builds] [music intensifies] [whispers] Ada, open control room door. [door chimes] [sighs] Ada. Identify the person in front of me. Ada: Emiliana Newton. Are you sure? Ada: Yes. Ada, identify the person I’m speaking with. Ada: Philip Mayda Identify the person on the med slab. Ada: Philip Mayda. Philip: Ada, how is that possible? Ada: I cannot explain this discrepancy. [sighs] You died. Philip: The hyperlight core gave out a few days ago. We came out of cryo and… we been trying to fix it… …since it happened. You went space walking… I accessed the core’s external sensors. We were operating under no sleep but… [external boom] …just two hours ago boom there was this explosion that surrounded the whole ship and y- She died in the rain of wreckage. Now you’re here. Alive. And- You look… just like her. Emeliana: Ada. What’s the current date and time? Ada: Earth date is March 22, 2103. The SUT is currently 954:34:54. Philip: What? Emiliana: T- Two hours ago was when were were schedule to exit hyperlight. Philip: Heading where? Did you activate your distress beacon? Philip: Of course I did, it’s protocol. That’s, that’s why we came here – to respond to a distress beacon. Philip: Christ! Emiliana: When… When our Solis arrived yours was already here. And we can’t be in the same place at the same… That’s why you, the um… The other you has no vitals because in this reality you’re already here. And I’m ok because I’m dead. Emiliana: I’m so sorry. Philip: Maybe uh… …you and he… …the other Phil worked but… Sorry. Listen, now that you’re uh, back… …here… …we need to, uh, work on the hyperlink core again. Emiliana: Ok. Philip: Alright I’m gonna go hack away at the CPU. I think the uh, next thing you were planning was uh… you were gonna go check out the shore controller. Ok. Ada: Emiliana… Are you feeling well? [ship rumbling in space] [connectors click] [display beeps to life] Philip on intercom: How’s it goin? It’s not communicating with anything on the ship. Yeah, I know. I’m gonna try some mods. Who knows if any of them work. Ada, where are my quanter tools? Ada: They’re still in docking bay two. Stay put. I’ll get ’em. [intense music builds] [door closes and locks] [warning alarm begins] Elimiana… The shore controller’s fried. We’re gonna be stuck here a long long time. No. Don’t do this. Emiliana: You can’t be in the same place at the same time. Philip: Don’t do this! Whatever she did… I’m sorry. Ada: Emiliana I can’t open the doors to docking bay to while Philip is inside. Ada, manual override, priority five. [override mechanism engaged] He’s gonna find out. [docking bay doors close] [docking bay locks and repressurizes] [alarm cycles] Philip: Hey. I missed you. What happened? [grunts] Tell me later. I have a headache. You ok? I’m ok. Totally fine. Thanks for taking care of me. Always.

  2. Dude: Why am I on that table?
    Woman: There was a malfunction with the hyperlight drive. Its actually 2 hours earlier. Im ok because Im dead but, Im afraid Im gonna have to blast you outta the airlock.
    Dude: Im gonna go hack around on the CPU.
    Woman: Can you get my tools out of the airlock…..pretty please???

  3. Well lets see, Siri was wrong about the "point of no return", doesn't know what happened, doesn't know why the medical programs don't work. Shit, Google + works better than Siri.
    Scrap that POS for parts and sell it on Ebay.

  4. i see no reason why there cannot be two identical humans at the same time. Only something like a soul could explain this and thats an unscientific reason

  5. Everyone likes a happy ending. But her assumption that killing Philip #2 would revive Philip #1 just might not have been necessarily so. This was a Star-Trek style pull an extreme solution out of one's ass, and win. Any way, if the Philips were identical, than why no spark between her and Philip #2?

  6. It’s amazing how much more imaginative your productions are than the swill that’s in theaters these days. Congratulations on the efforts of your hard work.

  7. 1) How is she going to explain the third ship is him?
    2) instead of blasting him out, why didn't they replace the oxygen of the current ship with that of their older selves? That way, their old versions will both die

  8. Queetion: Why we like dust and other YouTube channel shorts?
    Answer: Cause there isn't a trailer to spoil any wow moments or ends.

  9. DUST's productions are amazing! They are better than Hollywood! It's actually getting me into sci-fi, and I'm not a sci-fi person! Amazing!

  10. I think DUST can be the next generation Sci Fi production house so needed in Hollywood..brilliant stuff!! I am a big fan!

  11. I read people saying it's not a loop, I think it is, she will die he will send the signal and basically start over from the beginning and they both die, she dies from an accident and he dies killed by her which lead to anyone outside of the loop to find an empty ship

  12. Like it but I was wondering couldn't the other phillip have done the same manual over ride to stop the docking Bay from opening? And they could have gone at it for eternity.
    Moral of the story: now you know why you shouldn't trust a women.

  13. That was dumb, this plot was dumb and I regret spending my time on it. The set was great, acting great, props great,the effects decent that plot though… the plot was bad.

  14. okay so not to cherry pick here, but how these two ships come to be in the same universe in the first place? Or is that a part of the plot not yet revealed? The first ship had an accident that landed it in a different verse and the same ship responded to the distress call.

  15. All that tech & she's got a HUGE mole distracting everything on her face.
    And I see the plastic straw ban was useless, of course.

  17. We have all just watched a fairly compelling and deep short Science Fiction film that made us contemplate our own reality and the question that's on everyone's mind is: Why is everyone Asian?

  18. Nicely done, the video I mean. The story is cute but really predictable. I don't agree with the science but overall I liked it.

  19. This flick reminds me of the "Gamblers Fallacy"
    which many gamblers believe in

    Imagine you are at a Roulette wheel and 13 Black numbers have spun out
    the gamblers around the table start to bet on Red
    because they think that some gremlin somewhere is watching over that Roulette wheel
    and if too many Black numbers are spun out
    then the gremlin will start to spit out Red numbers
    since Roulette is a 50/50 game (well almost)

    I doubt that a gremlin is watching over the universe and demanding that a person brought back from the future
    can't exist with their body that is a few hours older

    those gremlins – the car was bad enough this movie is worse
