This is the Captain speaking. We have no contact with home and I have good reason to believe that the American Government is no longer functioning. The country we all hoped we were coming back to no longer exists. We left these shores four months ago as members of the United States Navy, but now we are more than that. Now our duty is to the entire world.
On board this ship is the hope. For our futures, for our families and for all humanity. Because in that lab in our helo bay are the ingredients for a cure and this is the safest place on Earth for our scientists to do their work. On a three billion dollar piece of machinery protected by 216 sailors in the US Navy.
Our mission now is simple: Do whatever it takes to stay alive at sea until they find that cure.
