INT. INFIRMARY - DAY

ELISABETH
What was he stealing that made it necessary to shoot him?

GUARD AT HOSPITAL
Him and his buddies were siphoning off our power grid.

ELISABETH
Why would they need to do that?

GUARD AT HOSPITAL
They're Sixers.

ELISABETH
Sixers?

CARTER
Slide your weapon across the floor. Now!

EXT. INNER GATES - DAY

ARTHUR CHANG
So, basically, Calysonias is real finicky, so you gotta keep the nitrogen level just so, otherwise the roots get hydroxic.

JIM
Hydroxic?

CHANG
Right.

JIM
Right.

CHANG
So what you need to do is you need to stick this into the root of the plant, and then you need to record it on here.

JIM
Okay.

CHANG
Are you listening? And like I was saying, once you, uh, get it on there, into the plant, and then you record it here.

JIM
Yeah, you know, I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be right back, and we're gonna do more stuff with the, with the thing

CHANG
Right.

JIM
Hydroxic.

CHANG
Hydroxic.


TAYLOR
And Hope Plaza says they want to put through more than a hundred people next time.

GUZMAN
That's a lot of housing units, not a lot of time.

TAYLOR
Suspend work on the South beach, we'll focus on the Western project.

JIM
Get down, Taylor!

GUZMAN
Down!

TAYLOR
Throw him in the brig. I'll deal with him later.

JIM
You want to tell me who that was and what the hell's going on here?

TAYLOR
Come on, let's take a drive. There's a lot about this place you need to know.

MADDY
School was nice, didn't you think? You know, playground where you don't have to wear a rebreather.

ZOE
I want to see the dinosaurs again.

REYNOLDS
You do, huh? It's probably not a good idea, though, 'cause if they get too full, then they get really sleepy and it's really noisy when dinosaurs snore.

MADDY
Well, actually, brachisauri aren't actually true herbivores. They, they sometimes supplement their diets with smaller reptiles, which is why they have proto-lateral incisors. Two sets. Upper and lower.

REYNOLDS
Okay. All right, I'll see you guys later.

MADDY
Yeah. Kill me now.

TAYLOR
You can't build civilization in a day, Shannon. Bound to be a few setbacks. We've had our share.

JIM
Yeah? Like what?

TAYLOR
That fella who tried to put a bullet in me? He's part of another settlement that split away from Terra Nova. Around here, people call 'em "sixers". They call them that 'cause they all came through on the sixth pilgrimage. At first, they seemed just like the rest of us. But pretty soon, we began noticing some things, like how curious they were about camp security procedures. By the time we found the cache of contraband weapons, it was clear They had an agenda.

JIM
What agenda? Who sent them?

TAYLOR
Believe me, many nights, I've asked myself the same thing. Long story short they caught on that we caught on to them, then they high-tailed it like thieves in the night. Pilfered a significant amount of equipment And weapons.

JIM
Well, maybe they gamed the lottery somehow.

TAYLOR
The thought has occurred to me.

JIM
What did Hope Plaza have to say about all this?

TAYLOR
What makes you think I asked them? Until we know who sent those people back, and why, I just don't know who in the future I can trust. This is what we're fighting for, Jim, a new beginning for all of us. If today has shown me anything, it's shown me that you've got what it takes to be part of my security team here in Terra Nova. You asked me for a badge and a gun. They're yours if you want 'em. Welcome aboard, Shannon.

JIM
What is it? Where?

TAYLOR
Taylor to base. Got a pair of transports in-bound. And they're coming in hot.

JIM
Who are they?

TAYLOR
Sixers. Things are about to get ugly.

TAYLOR
Taylor to base. You got a visual on those sixers?

GUZMAN
We seen 'em, but we got a work crew outside the gates. We need time to get them inside.

TAYLOR
I'll try and slow 'em down, but get everybody inside as soon as you can.

JIM
Over there! Two o'clock! Whoa! Look out! What are they firing at? 'Cause it's not us. What the hell is that?

TAYLOR
Carnotaurus. I hate carnotaurus.

TURRET MAN 1
We're all clear!

TAYLOR
What's going on back there?

JIM
Just keep...driving!

TAYLOR
Situation's changed. We've got carnos out here. Get everyone inside. We'll deal with the sixers later.

GUZMAN
We're almost there, but you gotta buy us more time. Hey! Keep those people back! We got sixers coming in!

TAYLOR
Take the wheel.

JIM
What?!

TAYLOR
Take the wheel!

JIM
Okay, okay.

TAYLOR
Hey! Hey! Look at me, you ugly bastard! This way!

MADDY
Mom! What's happening?

ELISABETH
Come here! Stay down!

TAYLOR
Come on. Come on.

What are you waiting for? Sonics, go!

SIXER?
Back away! Get back!

MIRA
Hello, Taylor.

TAYLOR
What are you doing here, Mira?

MIRA
This is no way to treat company.

TAYLOR
Have your men lower their weapons.

MIRA
You first.

TAYLOR
You're outnumbered.

MIRA
Then what are you so afraid of?

TAYLOR
Came here for a reason.

MIRA
You've got one of my people.

TAYLOR
Carter got shot...while he was trying to siphon power off our grid.

MIRA
We know he's alive and in your brig.

TAYLOR
You know this how?

MIRA
Maybe we still have a few friends here in Terra Nova.

TAYLOR
Well, maybe I'll have a sit-down with Carter Have a little chat about your friends.

ANGRY SIXER
We want Carter, you son of a bitch!

JIM (and others shouting)
Put the weapon down now!

Don't even think about it!

Back up right there!

Watch it, you!

Get back!

Don't come any closer!

MIRA
Enough!

TAYLOR
Stand down!

MIRA
A trade.

MADDY
What is that?

REYNOLDS
Meteoric iron, they control the quarry.

MIRA
I want Carter, medical supplies and ammo.

TAYLOR
You can have your man. You can have the meds. No ammo. No way.

MIRA
Can't blame a girl for trying.

TAYLOR
Guzman, get Carter out of the brig. Have medical put together some supplies.

MIRA
You're new. Welcome to paradise.

MADDY
Dad!

JIM
Are you guys okay?

ELISABETH
Yeah. How'd you get yourself caught up in the middle of all that?

JIM
Taylor asked me to join security.

ELISABETH
So you're going to be a cop again?

TAYLOR
Dr. Shannon. Uh, we could use a hand over in the infirmary.

JIM
It's all right. Go. I'll take the girls back to the house. Come on. It's okay.

ZOE
That wasn't a very nice dinosaur.

MADDY
No, he wasn't, was he?

ZOE
Is he gonna come back?

MADDY
Look, you don't have to worry about him, okay? You're safe here.

ZOE
I want to go home.

JIM
Oh, you want to go home, huh? Uh-huh, I know what you mean. It's all this sunshine, isn't it? It's way too bright. And the, and the fresh air? Ooh! Boy, does that ever get on my nerves. What's with all these flowers here? I mean, there's, there's too much color. And they're smelling up the place!

ZOE
Daddy!

JIM
Come on. You are home, sweetie. We all are.

MAX
I'm telling you, Skye.

SKYE
We're close, Max, trust me.

JOSH
I thought you said you came out here all the time.

MAX
Yeah, well, it's been over a week. And the jungle grows fast.

Oh, yeah.

SKYE
Here. Here we go. How'd we do? Could've used a couple more days, maybe, but It's not bad. Hey. Have a taste. Oh! Yeah, that is moonshine. Cretaceous-style. What's it made from? Uh we call 'em fruts. You know, as in part-fruit, part-nut. Looks like we need a A restock. Well, why don't you guys go grab us some fresh ones? - Then Josh and I'll start cutting. - Let's do that.

GUZMAN
Why give Mira the meds? All we're doing is making it more difficult to beat them.

TAYLOR
Look, Guz, we need the ore. You know that. Doc! That's enough iso-biotics. I don't want us to run short. Look, I'm sorry you got tangled up in that situation before. Security should've been more careful with the prisoner.

ELISABETH
Wouldn't be the first time a patient's pulled a knife on me.

TAYLOR
Considering you put in time at a state hospital, I expect so. Dr. Shannon, I'm curious. With your résumé, as accomplished as you are You could've had it pretty good back there. I mean, money and connections, you can buy a pretty good life. Maybe even one of those houses in one of the domes. Still, you chose to come here. Why?

ELISABETH
Well, yeah, believe me, I've had plenty of colleagues who have gone down that route, eking what they can from a world that's on its last breath. But I didn't want that for my children. I mean, I know life here is gonna present a lot of challenges to say the least, but I think they deserve the chance to be part of something real Something new Something that has a future.

TAYLOR
I understand. I felt the same way about getting my own boy here.

ELISABETH
I didn't know you had a son.

TAYLOR
Came in on the second pilgrimage. Worked right here in the science division. He went missing a few years back.

ELISABETH
I'm so sorry.

TAYLOR
Ah, there's always the hope. I haven't given up on him. Dr. Shannon, it's good to have you here. I think you're gonna do just fine.

ELISABETH
Can I just ask you to please To be careful with my husband? You asking him to be on your security team, that is between you and him. But, you know, I'm the one who stays up late worrying.

TAYLOR
I'll make sure he gets home to you.


Ooh. What is this? Oh, it's the, uh, the Barb from a slasher tail. The males all have 'em. It's sharp. Yeah. You should see their teeth. Don't worry. They mostly hunt at night. Yeah. Mostly? Oh, no, thanks. Hey, uh, I'm sorry about what happened back there. That whole thing with my dad. You two don't get along? Ah, we're just really different, that's all. I mean, he can go from zero to infinity in no second flat. You saw how bent out of shape he got. "This is not how you start your first day, Josh. " "Oh, excuse me, miss, my son has somewhere to be. " He's lecturing me about rules? He broke every rule in the book just to get here. Right. No, he's like the kind of guy who would show up in a new place, and he's like, "oh, I'm gonna ditch orientation and go for a swim with a bunch of people I barely know. " Right? Yeah, you guys are pretty different. Pretty different. Yeah.

MIRA
You're bleeding again. Let me see. Look, I know things haven't gone exactly like we planned. It's all about to change.

ALVAREZ
Delta One, can you read me? Delta One, can you read me?

MIRA
Go ahead, Delta Two.

ALVAREZ
We spotted a vacated TN transport. Looks ripe.

MIRA
Grab the power supplies and any ammo you find. But move fast; They can't be too far.

DRAKE
This power cell is jammed.

ALVAREZ
Hurry it up already.

DRAKE
What's with you?

ALVAREZ
Thought I heard something.

DRAKE
You're always hearing things.

Got it.

Let's get out of here.


What was that? Probably just a howler. Yeah. A howler. You know, it's getting late. We should go.

JIM
You wanted to see me?

TAYLOR
Shannon, come on in. We've got a situation here. One of our rovers went missing. Surveillance picked this up. Couple of our kids sneaking outside the perimeter.

JIM
Josh!

GUZMAN
We've been trying to reach the rover over the comm for the last half hour no response.

TAYLOR
Night is falling. If we don't get to them pretty quick, something else might.

ELISABETH
Why in heaven's name would he do something like that?!

JIM
She must've talked him into it, so I'm going to go with the search party.

ELISABETH
She? Who's she?

JIM
That girl he met when he skipped orientation. I told him to go back, but he wouldn't listen.

ELISABETH
Okay, I'm going with you.

JIM
Uh, no, you're not; It's too dangerous.

ELISABETH
Jim, our son is out there!

JIM
Yeah. Let me handle it!

ELISABETH
No, you "handling it" is why he's out there in the first place.

JIM
Elisabeth! Stay here. Watch your sister.

MADDY
Dad! -

JIM
It's okay. Everything's gonna be okay. I promise.

MAX
No, no, no, no. Damn it!

HUNTER
Wh-wh-what's wrong?

MAX
It's stripped. The power cells are gone. The transport's dead.

TASHA
Okay, well, then we have to call somebody. We have to tell them that we're out here.

HUNTER
Did you hear what he said? It's dead. That means there is no radio.

SKYE
It's too far to walk. We'll never make it back before dark.

TASHA
Oh, God. What's that?

HUNTER
That's a Sixer vehicle.

JOSH
What's a Sixer? Wait, where are you going?

SKYE
To get our stuff back.

TASHA
Skye, no! I'm not going over there. You can't trust a Sixer.

SKYE
Whatever, Tash. I'll handle them. Hello? We're not armed. We just want to talk. Hey, we're stuck out here without those power cells.

JOSH
Skye. Look, blood.

MAX
Yo, guys, I got them. The cells are all here. Slasher, run! Go, go, go, go, go, go! Go, go, go!

JOSH
What is it?!

SKYE
Slasher! Just run!

DRAKE
Get away from me!

HUNTER
Come on, man, let us in, please.

SKYE
Hey, uh, I remember you. Drake, right? It's me, Skye.

DRAKE
Skye. All right. Get in.

SKYE
Come on, go. Get in, get in. Let's go. Get in! Come on, go! Hurry! Max, get this thing started!

MAX
Yeah, well, it's got an Alpha-num key-punch. So unless I know the code, then Okay, pop the panel, Jack the starter. I can't. The rig is booby-trapped. Hey, Drake. Hey, how do you get this thing started? It's dead. Power converter got crushed by a slasher tail. Oh, my God! He's really bleeding a lot. Hey, your mom's a doctor, right? Found weapons! Tie this around his leg above the wound tight as you can. You make it through this, you won't be a fresh anymore. Oh, my God! Last known location is the outer marker, two klicks down the southeast road. We're gonna head in that direction, start scanning for a heat signature. Hunter Boyce is missing. Max Pope, too. - And another one. - Who? My daughter. Tasha. Weapons and ammo in the vehicle. - You'll need a medic. - No. Both parents, dangerous situation, bad idea. - Sorry, Jim. - No, I'm going. No time for squabbles. Both of you ride with me! Move out, people! Most people know I was the first man through the portal. What people don't know is that the men who came through behind me, well, they didn't show up on this end right away. For them, it was just the blink of an eye. For me, 118 days. Look, I know you're scared for your boy. You have every reason to be. But point is, this jungle can be survived. Why does it keep making that sound?! Oh, God, there's another one! Slashers hunt in packs. They corner their prey and signal the others. Before long, there'll be dozens. We're stuck in here! We're trapped, okay?! What about the radio? Can we get it to work without the converter? The comm won't work. But Alvarez might have a portable one in his pack. - On the floor. - Hunter, get it out. It's in that bag. Got it. Anybody can hear this? Come in. Terra nova, come in. We're going in circles. No, we're establishing a search grid. Well, what if they're outside the grid? Then we expand it. Can anybody hear this? We need help. Come in. Terra Nova. Copy that. This is Tango November one. Identify yourself. Commander Taylor! This is Hunter Boyce. We-we're stuck in a rover outside the perimeter. Uh Is your rover operational, Hunter? Sixers jacked our power cells. Hunter, do you copy? Slashers. Say that again. And say again about slashers. Conserve your ammo. Short bursts. Got it. Hunter, say again about slashers. Uh, three, maybe more. I can't see any - About 80 meters down from - 80 meters? I said we're about East of what? - Where is it?! - Grab it! Josh, grab the radio! Grab it! Hello! If you're still there, we're, uh, we're about That's Josh. Josh? Josh, it's your dad. Could not copy last transmission. Please repeat. Mom! Dad! Is that you? Do you copy, Josh? Please repeat. Josh! Out of the way. My side's clear. Mine, too. You think they left? Don't assume anything with slashers. Our gunfire drove them away for now, but they'll regroup and come back. No, we should we should make a run for it while we still can. Make a run for what? - Terra Nova! - That's, like, five klicks away. - Tash, we'd never make it. - We have weapons, and anything is better than being sitting ducks No, we don't know how many of them are out there, and we have limited ammunition. Hey, hey, hey, I might be a fresh, but, I mean, commander Taylor got our distress call. Commander Taylor knows we're in trouble. We just got to hold on a little while longer for him to get here. It could take them hours to find us! Well, we have enough ammo to hold off the slashers a little while longer. We can make it. My God, he doesn't even know what he's talking about! - Tasha, Tasha - They can smell his blood! They can smell his blood! - They're gonna come - Calm down! We're not gonna make it! Whoa, whoa! Tasha! Tasha! Tasha, no! Tasha! Tasha! Stop it! No! Tasha! It's suicide! - Hi. - Hey. What are you doing here? Well, with everything going on, I wanted to make sure you were okay. Yeah. You know, we're okay. Considering. Uh, we haven't heard back from the search team yet, but, uh, shouldn't be long though. I'm sure your brother's gonna be okay. - Um, if you need anything, just - Don't go. Uh, Zoe's scared. Right, Zoe? This is Tango November. I have all frequencies open. Hunter, do you copy? Josh Shannon, do you copy? This is commander Taylor. Just keep heading east. I think that's where the signal originated. With all this technology, shouldn't they know? Elisabeth. Anywhere else, we would know, but this is some dense jungle out Watch out! Oh, God. What's her name? It's Tasha. Okay, Tasha, can you hear me? I'm a doctor, okay? I'm right here. It's me, daddy. I'm right here, honey. I need you to apply pressure to this wound. Here, here, here. Tasha, you stay with me, okay? Slashers came. Fired the gun Can you tell me where the others are? No. We'll get her safely to the hospital as soon as I stabilize her. Tasha, did you have to go through water to get here? I-I There's a stream about a half a klick north of here. Bracco, you stay here with Guz and the doc. Yes, sir. Rest of you, gather up. Put your hand there. Just in case. Jim, wait, wait. Look, I-I'm sorry about what I said before. This is not your fault. Yes, it is. Josh came out here with these kids just to spite me. Spite you? No, he is you. Pretty girl and a chance to break the rules You'd have done the same thing at his age. Well, you should know. You were that girl. Bring him back. I will. Max, say we make a run for our rover. Are those power cells usable? This one's completely drained. The other two are half charged. If Hunter and I cover you, how fast do you think you can get those power cells installed? Maybe five, ten minutes. I say we make a run for our rover, power it up and get the hell out of here. Hunter, check the cylinders on our weapons. We can do this, you guys. Come on. Are you hurt? I'm fine. You're pretty good at this whole taking charge thing. Yeah, well, my dad was a corporal under commander Taylor. I guess he kind of rubbed off on me. Was? Sincyllic fever. Mom, too. Sorry. Whatever. Everybody loses their parents sooner or later. What's not supposed to happen is the other way around. Let's try to get the hell out of here in one piece, all right? If we do engage slashers, aim for the underbelly. Hides are too thick for the tranq-guns to penetrate. Stay five meters clear of their tails. Tango November, this is Guzman. Do you copy? Yeah, I'm here. We're taking Tasha back to camp. Doc says she needs surgery. Understood. Hey, Guz, she's in good hands. Keep sharp eyes. Mira's your area. We picked up sixers' radio chatter. Damnation! Copy that. Mira just what I need right now. Her people always this much trouble? Yeah, so far. I don't know who sent them, I don't know why, but I'll tell you this I'm not going to let them, I'm not going to let anybody stand in the way of what we are building here. Terra Nova will succeed. How's it looking, Josh? Looks like we've got a clear run to the vehicle. Okay, I think we're clear on this side. This side, too. Okay. All right, remember to stay together. We all set? Look, maybe this isn't such a good idea. Maybe we should just stay here and wait for help. We talked about this. We can't stay here. Just take it easy, man. Look, if a slasher's going to munch on any of us, it won't be your scrawny ass. No! Hunter! Hunter?! Hunter! Hunter, are you okay? Give me a hand. - We've got to get into the rover. - What about Hunter? I'll stay and cover him. You guys just get those power cells in and get the thing moving. I'm out! Come on. Flank and tranq. Establish a perimeter. Keep coming, Skye. Got you covered. Josh! Dad! Josh. Get down! It's okay, it's okay. It's me. It's over. Get him in the transport. Max, Max! Oh, God. You're going to be okay. You all right, young lady? Tasha she-she tried to make it back to camp. Uh, huh, we got her. You said there were sixers? Yeah, over there. With me. You're safe. He's gone. Mira. She came for her man. Looks like they're back. Let's get you looked at. Try not to put too much weight on it. I guess we know why they call them slashers, huh? I'm sorry. It's okay. I want to say how sorry I am for what happened today. I know. You know, you've been so good to me since my folks I just don't like to disappoint you. Well, you're still in one piece, that's the important thing, huh? Now you know why that area's off limits. Sir. Well, it's slasher territory. Yeah, of course. So just what were you all doing out there, anyhow? Dumb stuff. Drinking. You didn't go anywhere near the falls, did you? No, sir. Good. Good. Those can be some treacherous waters. Someone was definitely here. Found footprints. It was those kids. Taylor's not going to like that. He wants to keep all this under wraps. Why doesn't he just blast them off the rocks? 'Cause they're the only connection he has left to his son. I still don't get why the crazy bastard does this out here. Why do you think? To throw it in his old man's face. Every time he gets closer to an answer, he puts it here for Taylor to see. To remind him the real reason for Terra Nova's existence. Control the past, control the future. These are the key To everything. Is it going to fall on us? Is what going to fall on us, sweetie? What is it? That, my little Zoe, is the moon. And no, it's not going to fall on us. Wow. Almost forgot what it looks like. I was a kid when the air got so bad you couldn't see it anymore. Was it always so big? Not always. It moves about half a centimeter away from the Earth every year. So it's much closer than it was yesterday. You mean tomorrow. You know what I mean. The sky is insane. This whole place is. The stars are all different here, too. They're not in the same place as in 2149, because the universe has had years to expand. I mean, do the math. We'll just leave the math up to you, sweetie.
