The ship suffers mechanical issues with their generators and engines. This also affects their RO water system. They ship is down to approximately 3,000 gallons of fresh water and that must last the estimated 6 days that it will take them to find land using their one good engine. The Captain and XO realize that they only have 4 days of fresh water, even using the strictest of rationing. It also affects their ability to cool the ship which results in major problems for the lab where the doctor is trying to find a cure. A former enemy now must be relied upon to help with the virus research but he has his own demands first. Written by Bill Hancock

Did You Know?


A mistake they continue to make is with the X.Y. and Z doors. In the opening scenes the second in command comes into a space where the captain is by coming through a closed door marked Z. Doors marked with a Z are to be kept open until "Condition Z" is announced. Under normal sailing conditions all these doors are open, but conditions Xray, Yankee, and Zulu are announced to protect the ship by closing these doors based on the severity of the condition. Condition Xray being with some but not all doors closed, with Yankee and Zulu having progressively more doors closed; until the ship is completely watertight with all watertight doors closed. Only water tight doors are labeled in this way. So the door that the second in command came through should have been opened and not have been closed; since no condition Zulu was in force at the time.
