An Ood delivers a metal case to a man named Curt, telling him that the contents are Captain Walker's belongings. The man tells the Ood to leave and then opens the case. As he does so, the lights go out and the ship's computer states, "He shall awake." The man takes out the notebook. As he thumbs through the pages, the book emits a red light, and the monitors in the room begin to flicker and display the message "THE BEAST IS AWAKE. HE SHALL RISE FROM THE PIT." A lever depresses on its own, and the notebook bursts into flames in the man's hands. He runs to the door but the doors will not open. The computer tells him that the door is sealed, followed by a repeated chant of "He is coming. He is coming." Later, a woman named Chenna enters the room, claiming to smell burning. She finds the man cowering in a chair, muttering, with the mysterious writing from the notebook having somehow transferred to his face. Written by
