EXT. SPACE, DAY
The Orville coasts up to the alien ship Udarra; the Udarra’s power is flickering.
We received an emergency call from the Udarra where ninety percent of their freshwater became irradiated after they had a core melt down. We will be doing an at-space refueling and repair maneuver to assist them.
INT. ORVILLE BRIDGE, DAY
Mercer, Kelly, Malloy, Catgirl, Isaac, Alara and Bortus are at their stations on the bridge. The captain of the Udarra, Pitch Orobado, is on the view screen.
Captain Orobado, I am in command during this operation. When we get within 200 yards we will both activate our tractor beams to lock us into a parallel course.
Aye, Capt Mercer.
Lamarr, is the transfer line ready to be disengaged?
Yes, sir. I’ve configured it so that we take on their irradiated water, filter it and then pump it right back to them and an additional power line to recharge their emergency back up batteries.
Good. Who from your department is going to the Udarra?
Yaphit and I are on the first rotation.
Very well, dismissed. Catgirl, you’ll fly back and forth from our ship to theirs transporting their sick and wounded to our medical bay. Dr. Finn, are you guys ready?
Yes sir, we are ready.
Lamarr leaves and then Dann comes in and takes the engineering position, Catgirl’s position is filled by Kelly.
Captain, we are nearing the anchor position.
Malloy, can you put our closing distance up on the view screen.
Malloy punches some buttons and a yardage counter is counting down 221, 220, 219.
Thank you Kelly. Captain Orobado, engage tractor beam lock on my mark.
EXT. ORVILLE, DAY
The Orville and the Udarra get closer and closer.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – engage tractor beams.
Both ships engage their tractor beams; they don’t cross and they are not cover the ship’s cargo bay.
Captain Orobado, send your cable so that we can hook up transfer line.
An astronaut with a jetpack sails towards the Orville and is greeted by to Orvillers in space suits. They hook the cable to the transfer line.
Cable hooked and ready to pull.
Captain Orobado, you may proceed.
Aye, pull er in! Gently now!
The cable pulls the transfer line swiftly to the other side where more Udarra astronauts await to hook it up.
INT. ORVILLE, BRIDGE
Transfer line successfully attached.
Dann, charge the lines.
Charging. 14% drop in our ships power, compensating. Ship’s power nominal. Water filtration at 100%.
EXT. ORVILLE, DAY
The lines extending from the Orville to the Udarra charge. We see dirty water going to the Orville and clean, blue water returning to the Orville. There are still astronauts standing by waiting further orders.
