The ship suffers mechanical issues with their generators and engines. This also affects their RO water system. They ship is down to approximately 3,000 gallons of fresh water and that must last the estimated 6 days that it will take them to find land using their one good engine. The Captain and XO realize that they only have 4 days of fresh water, even using the strictest of rationing. It also affects their ability to cool the ship which results in major problems for the lab where the doctor is trying to find a cure. A former enemy now must be relied upon to help with the virus research but he has his own demands first. Written by Bill Hancock

CMC Jeter: I'm guessing the Navy told you about my car accident.
CO CDR Tom Chandler: Yeah. Yeah. They did
CMC Jeter: Well, there's something they don't even know about. It was my fault. Tried to pass a car on a curve. Didn't see the oncoming truck. I killed my wife and my girls. I was in the ICU for 82 days. Seven times I coded, seven times they brought me back. In between, I had plenty of time to think and to wonder why did God leave me here? Why did He spare me? There must be a ...
