Now only a week away from arriving at Venus, the crew are still puzzled by the hallucinations they've had. When Zoe hears the crying child, she and Donner follow it to Pod 4 but find they have no access. Donner challenges Ted to explain what is going on but are interrupted when they must all seek shelter due to an impending radiation burst from a solar flare. With the crisis averted, Goss orders Ted not to reveal Beta's presence in Pod 4 but he must decide what is in the best interest of his crew. In a flashback to training, Ted tells Connor what Eve told them about their Mars mission. The recruits also undergo painful obedience training. Written by garykmcd

A matter of trust
30 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the events of the previous episode the crew of the Antares are sure they have been lied to about the causes of their hallucinations. Zoe continues to hear a crying baby so she, along with Donner, follow the sound which leads them to storage pod four, which they can't access even though the manifest suggests that it contains nothing but spare parts. Meanwhile in the flash backs to their training we see the would be crew engaging in exercises in following orders... even when those orders will hurt themselves or their friends. Of course this has parallels to what is happening in the present when a solar flare is reported and the crew are forced to shut themselves in a shielded compartment, not all of them make it back in time and they must decide whether to wait a bit longer or shut the door and possibly condemn the others to death by radiation.

The series is moving along nicely now and it looks like we will soon be learning a bit more about the mysterious Beta which should be interesting. I suspect the interaction with ground control might become more interesting now they know they've been lied to. It does seem a bit strange that in the flashbacks to training the crew only seem to interact with each other and not the other candidates, after all back then they had no idea which of them would be selected.
