To survive, Sam must free Dave--prisoner number six--to help repair the damage before it's too late.  With time running out and Externo looming, Sam must decide whether she can trust Dave's tale of innocence, or if her entire mission is a lie...

So all this time she was talking to stasis Dave while I thought Dave was giving her the cold shoulder. Nice surprise.
Why don't you just kill them. The bloody hell is the point of this.

why couldnt they just be given a death sentence if they are so dangerous?

But why spend that much resources and money on six people when you could probably drop them of that much closer? I’m so curious!!!
Really good story! I love the overall plot and it reminds me of Interstellar.
