Episode 43: The End Of Everything
Inside a vault deep in The Arena, the pilots come face to face with some dark truths about the world as they knew it...and The End Of Everything.
Deep inside the newly discovered vault, the team of pilots uncovers a journal entitled, "The End Of Everything: A Life Lived". It details a great pandemic that swept across America, killing nearly everyone. It speaks of a mysterious "she" who tried to defeat death by creating life unending. Further along they find the remnants of a chapel dedicated to someone or something who looks like they are in swarm form...and then the zombies wake up. Fleeing from the shambling masses, Rosie is bit. The team rushes out to the tram station, and powering up the car, escape the vault and it's undead horrors. Back outside in the wasteland that is The Arena, the are met by a flying scavenger named Tony. He agrees to take them safely to the city on stilts in exchange for George The Slushie Machine. It seems that George is quite valuable to "the ones on high" who seek out such items because they "want to remember". That night, Rosie locks herself in her cabin and begins committing as much of her knowledge about the metaverse to the journal in case she becomes a zombie, otherwise known as one of "The Lost". Her work is interrupted by the arrival of air pirates who attack Tony's ship. The team meets on the deck to combat the salvo as best they can...which is when Jenika goes into swarm form. Rosie feels a pain in her arm and looks down in time to see a string of nanowasps streak out of her wound and head off toward Jenika. Crash uncovers a pair of rocket boots and uses them to take down the lead ship, causing the rest of the pirates to flee. Jenika re-materializes on the deck as the pursuing swarm of zombie nanos falls to the ground, scattering helplessly along its surface.
