On an isolated moonbase, Captain Black (French Stewart) and Dr. Allison (Keith Allen)
investigate Corporal Ryan's claims that she found a dead body... a body
clawed and chewed to death as if by some sort of savage animal.


Other dramatis personae, L-R:
Jones (Jay Bogdanowitsch) and Archer (Michael Holmes), who engaged in an unfriendly game of chess...
Corporal Ryan (Mandi Moss), better known as "Corporal Titty" when that asshole Captain Black is around...
and Unruh (Marz Richards), who ran into the room with blood dripping from his mouth, babbling that he can explain.

EPISODE TWO (3/27/10)
Stills from video by Aaron Francis


Lt. Dugan (Colin Willkie) keeps an eye on the crew while waiting for his superior.


Security Chief Blevins (Rick Steadman) and Captain Black quickly find themselves at odds.


The only weaponry: Dugan's shotgun, and four sidearms.
Guns on a space station aren't the best idea, but these are desperate times.


Jones asks for a gun.


Blevins to Cpl. Ryan: "I'll make sure you get the rubber
bullets so you don't hurt anybody." A fight ensues.


"Titty, I'm going to give you lethal and non-lethal ordinance. And if anybody looks
at you weird, I want you to blow them some new ventilation. Is that understood?"


Archer informs Ryan that he plans to disobey Black's
orders and go down to Medlab to check on Unruh.

EPISODE THREE (4/3/10)

Dr. Allison is bandaged. Archer says they've got a werewolf on their hands. The others
are skeptical.  Dr. Allison says lycanthropy is purely psychological, but Archer points
out that Unruh was strong enough to withstand a bullet and run away.


The supply ship finally arrives, but when Jones blurts
out about the killings, the supply ship refuses to land.


A feral Unruh attacks and kills Jones.


Lt. Dugan and Unruh face off, but unnoticed behind them...


...Dr. Allison begins to transform.
