"Survivors" (Minisode 6) Recap:
Husker hears thumping and moves toward it.

Husker reaches a door as it gets quiet. He looks inside and asks, "is someone in there?"

Suddenly, a man puts his hands on the door. He says, "Help up. They left us here. Don't leave us here. Please."

Husker says, "I'm going to get you out of here." He looks around, finds a pipe and moves to pry open the door."

As Husker strugglers with the door, the man says, "We're civilians. They jumped our convoy. They destroyed our escort. They took us all prisoner. There were fifty of us, but they took us away one-by-one. We could hear the others screaming. We don't know what was happening to them. Please, you've got to get us out of here."

Husker says, "I'm trying, but the door must be welded shut."

Suddenly, a loud rumbling can be heard.

The man asks, "What is it? What is happening?"

Husker answers, "I don't know. It feels like a quake. The place is starting to come apart."

A basestar can be seen beginning to leave the planet's surface.

Husker strains and manages to open the door a couple of inches.

The man peeks through the gap in the door.

Husker keeps pushing, but then says, "It's still stuck. I can't open it any wider.

The man can be seen trying to put his hand out. A woman is also seen peeking out the lower half of the door.

The man tells Husker, "You gotta go. You gotta go. You gotta go get help."

Husker says, "I'll stay here with you."

The man counters, "No. You can't do it by yourself. Just go. Tell them what happened to us. Our ship was the Diana.from Gemennon. Just tell them, alright. If you stay here, you'll be trapped like us. Go."

Husker reluctantly turns away from the door and walks a few steps.

Husker turns and looks back to see the woman reaching out through the gap.

The man again says, "Go. Go. Save yourself. Just go."

Husker turns and runs back out the doorway where he first came in.
