Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview
Looks like #4 may be up. Or least a couple pages. Font is too small for me to read what they are saying.
I can make out most of it by zooming in, though it's blurry. Here's what I think it says (the pages are actually the wrong way around, with the first page on the right):
Exterior of ship around planet. Voiceovers:
"How do we get our ship back, Scotty?"
"Well, sir, the good news is that the energy field that hit us when we arrived at Phaedus is gone. No doubt it was just April's way to get our attention."
Interior engine brewery. 3-shot of Spock, Scott, Kirk.
Scott: "But the catastrophic news is that whatever program April activated inside the ship's computer has locked us out of everything! He controls it all from the bridge now!"
Kirk: "Then we take the bridge."
2-shot, Spock and Kirk.
Spock: "A task simpler to describe than it is to accomplish, Captain. April has locked off the bridge and shut down all turbolift access."
Kirk: "So our only hope is taking back the main computer from here."
Close angle on Spock.
Spock: "On the contrary, Captain, I believe your more... direct approach to the problem is our best option. We must retake the bridge."
Overhead shot as Spock kneels by grating resembling modern air vent.
Spock: "The turbolifts are inoperable, but the Jefferies tubes running throughout the ship are still accessible."
Scotty rubs his head, perhaps wondering why Spock thinks he needs to explain Jefferies tubes to them.
Interior ventilation sha -- sorry, "Jefferies tube": Spock removes grating.
Spock: "We can track our progress on our tricorders, emerge on the bridge, and hopefully take April by surprise."
Angle over Kirk and Scott's shoulders as Spock enters "tube."
Scott: "Not really inclined to wait for the order to be given, is he, Captain?"
Kirk: "Doesn't bother me so much when he's right, Scotty."
